Heading into the new month brings a brand new concert from Radio Free D'ni!
This will take place this Sunday, October 4th, starting at 13:00 KI time and ending at around 15:00, with music before the show as people tune in. The party will take place in the usual spot in Ae'gura, in the courtyard.
This one is described as a "History of Passport" and is intended to be the first part of what may be a two part set. If there is enough interest, part two will be put together for a later concert.
They also take any suggestions for a playlist that fans would like to see. If you'd like to mention a favorite band, genre, etc to the group, you can PM them on the forums or post in the associated forum thread.

Richard Watson, better known as "RAWA" at Cyan to the Myst community, shared some recent personal news. He has candidly explained his absence to fans.
I was diagnosed with a walnut-sized brain tumor at the end of August. I had brain surgery on Sept. 15th, and now have a very cool-looking “centipede” scar and a new nickname: “TC” (for “Titanium Cranium”). Welcome to RAWA v2.0 - a kinder, gentler, more heavily-medicated, slightly more extroverted RAWA.
To help his recovery, RAWA has made a request:
Do me a favor, please. During the Kickstarter campaign for Obduction, many of you told your stories of how the Myst series affected you. Those stories meant the world to my mom, who spent twenty years knowing I made “games”, but not knowing how much these “games” meant to so many people of all ages from all around the world. Y'all made her cry with joy many times.
Now, more than ever, those stories will help my mom, my wife, my kids, and even me. Sign that guestbook on the Caring Bridge site. Tell your stories. My family will see your stories, and all your stories really will help us all through this difficult time. Thank you, more than I can say!
Cyan...and Richard in particular...have given the Myst/URU community so much over the years (including a soon-to-be-released new game!), so we at the Guild encourage everyone who can to stop by his Caring Bridge page and leave your stories and thoughts for RAWA!
Radio Free D'ni is gearing up for their latest concert. This one is called "Bass Instincts" and will focus on the famous bass guitarists who made themselves known either solo or with various bands.
The event will take place on Sunday, September 20th at 13:00 KI time and run about two hours, with some pre-show and post-show music as well. Drop into Ae'gura's courtyard to join your fellow explorers for the festivities!

The Guild of Healers has been a familiar fixture in the cavern and in Second Life for many years...and they're going to celebrate our move into the fall season with a party!
If you'd like to join in on the festivities, head over to the Guild of Healers' Hood on Monday, September 21st at 13:00 KI time. Music will be streamed at this URL the day of the party.
On September 18th, 2014 the primary matrix of the KI-device, known as "the Lattice", suffered a major cascade failure, leading to a subsequent event known as the "Great Crash" of its virtual processing nodes. Unable to utilize the Nexus or rely upon the KI-coordinate system from the Great Zero, travel to and from the cavern became hazardous at best. Thankfully, through dedicated efforts of several Restoration Engineers, the Lattice was restored to functionality after weeks of dedicated work. There were severe data corruption issues, however.
Both the KI-devices and Lattice were able to be restarted only at their "baseline" state, very similar to that which the DRC encountered when investigating the cavern during the first Restoration. It is unknown at this time if Victor Laxman was consulted during these repairs.
Access to Nexus and various cavern locations may now be visited with relative safety, assuming normal precautions are taken during such explorations.
