The Guild of Messengers is pleased to announce a new format for its magazine, The Cavern Post, known as The Cavern Post 2.0! Due to a lack of human resources and that precious thing called "time", we have decided to go for a lighter, web-based format to which anyone signed into the Guild of Messengers website can contribute as easily as writing a News post. This will hopefully get the content out to everyone faster...and nobody's article gets left in limbo.
Each Article is then examined by the magazine team, tweaked if necessary, then the final approval is given by the magazine editor (with Guild Masters as assistant editors for now) before it is published for all to read. We already have one article ready thanks to Ahlisendar, so be sure to read it and leave comments!
NOTE: A print (PDF) version of the magazine may still be put out by the Guild if there is enough interest and enough articles down the line; it would just be more sporadic.
The magazine can now be viewed here or by clicking on the "Magazine" link at the top of our website. We at the Guild of Messengers hope you enjoy the new format and please tell us what you think!
Hello everyone, and welcome to the first official Cavern Post 2.0 article! In addition to being the kick-off to this awesome new GoMe experience, this is also my first article for the Guild of Messengers, so I’ve got something special for you. I hope you enjoy it.
Back in February, an amazing artist named Heather Larkin got an awesome interview by Allatwan for The Cavern Post. During this interview, she mentioned that she was thinking about starting a webcomic based on the Book of Atrus. Since then, she's gotten that project well underway, and has received a little bit of fame because of it. Therefore, she'll be answering a few questions for us (again) about how things have changed since only a few months ago, what her plans are, and other cool stuff. Read more

The Guild of Healers, one of the more regular fixtures in the cavern, has a few pieces of news to share with the community. They are pleased to introduce a new member of the Guild, who will begin leading some of their in-cavern events. Her name is Crystal Dante, and she will begin to survey interest in many types of healing events aligned with her area of healing.
They will also be moving to the Community Nexus section of the OpenUru.org forums while their presence in the MOUL forums for event announcements won't change as they only had been putting out small messages.
The Sunday Meditations and Compassion & Caring Assemblies will continue each 2nd and 4th week. The Guild is also working on a few different storyline ideas for events as well - one of which Crystal will co-guide.
Look for more Healer events in the near future!
Shorah, fellow dwellers of the cavern!
Recently, taniith of the Falling Man Group as begun soliciting input on the future of Mysterium. Although this year's to be held August 3rd - 5th in Seattle is fast approaching, what to do for future Mysteriums (Mysteria?) is still in question. A special section of the Mysterium website has now been dedicated to soliciting input from the larger Myst/Uru community on how to handle Mysteriums in the future.
Here is just a sampling of the info being requested:
- Where and how often should future Mysteriums be held?
- How large/small should Mysterium events be in size?
- Who is interested in being involved in the planning and running of future Mysteriums?
- What style and structure should the planning teams of such future Mysteriums contain?
Although there is perhaps no perfect or "magical" answer to these questions, input from explorers is a vital part of the process at making this great event an even better experience for everyone. So, when you get a chance, please drop by the Mysterium site and let your voice heard!
Here's to the future of Mysterium...Seattle, Spokane, and beyond!!!
