Jamie Marchant is excited to announce the launch of the new version of the well-known Heritage Night!
Starting December 15th, 2013 at 13:00 KI-time, that Sunday will kick off a monthly retelling of the major events which have occured during the history of Uru Live. The current event series will focus on recollections of events that have occurred since the cavern's most recent reopening back in February 2010 to the present.
The first session of this redesigned Heritage Night will include the following:
- Greetings & welcome to both old and new explorers
- Historical narrative by Jamie Marchant, a special guest, and/or both
- Chat and questions concerning the storyline.
- A related activity/field trip.
Anyone can attend, thus allowing new explorers to hear stories they "myst", while veteran explorers can "take the trip down memory lane". This first session will also end with a Q&A for new players.
Jamie and your fellow explorers look forward to seeing you there!
The D'ni Musicological Research hood is proud to welcome back Robyn Miller for an interview on Saturday, December 21st, 2013 at 18:00 KI-time.
This interview will be Robyn Miller - In His own Words, meaning it's not so much of a structured interview with scripted questions, but rather, they will have an open discussion with him about his new film, The Immortal Augustus Gladstone.
They will also discuss Obduction (to the degree he can speculate or disclose) and other projects that are ahead for him, plus some biographical background and history as well.
You can listen in at the appropriate time on their music stream: http://184.108.40.206:6042/
Please join the DMR for this informative interview as they welcome Robyn back to the Cavern!
Update 1: The Guild of Messengers will be sponsoring the party in MOULa on December 21st...with Doobes as your host!
Join us as we celebrate the holidays in style on all of the open source URU shards... just like in the "good old days" of Until Uru! We'll hop to one of the three major OS shards each week of the season. Get your avatars ready (and put your Santa hats on) for the Christmas Party Hop. Watch this thread for updates from your favorite shard administrators and guilds. A little birdie told us that we might even have a visit from the ever elusive large man from the north.
The Open Cave: Saturday, December 14th, 13:00 KI / 20:00 UTC (Note: This will be on the MOUL shard)
MOULa: Saturday, December 21st, 13:00 KI / 20:00 UTC - Hosted by the Guild of Messengers
For information on installing and troubleshooting each shard, consult the links above!
Winter is coming...and so has another All Guilds Meeting!
Here's a summary of what you missed:
Doobes led the meeting off by talking about Cyan's latest project...Obduction! As was reported on this site earlier, Cyan Worlds is using Kickstarter to fund the game, so be sure to stop by and donate what you can, and hopefully, we'll get to see new worlds made by the creators of Myst and Riven!

October's All Guilds Meeting has finished and there was lots to report, the least of which being that Doobes finally stopped slacking and returned to his moderating duties at last! As always, here are the raw and cleansed chatlogs for a little light reading.
Here's what went on this month:
Cavern Tours/Cavern Theater
Zeke365 and Stone started things off to talk about their planned Cavern Tours. They are still in need of planning, including a translation bot (which Stone is working on), but they hope to have something happen in November. Cavern Theater is still being put together. Explorers are welcome to submit what they have to zeke for approval (email@example.com). Events incorporating this material are still to be scheduled.
Guild of Writers
Hoikas came up next to mention that Gehn.17 was recently released. The shard now has 908 active avatars, and the group would like to throw another party at some point in the future (hopefully to bring that total to 1,000!).
