For years, fans have yearned for the ability to bring fan Ages into Cyan's official shard (MO:ULa). It now suddenly seems like those dreams are becoming very real! After communication between OpenUru.org and Cyan Worlds Inc., during which Cyan gave the go-ahead to start bringing content into MO:ULa, a public debate was started to discuss the best means to present these Ages to explorers, with various options being proposed in this thread. Much of the talk so far has centered around how to integrate these Ages story-wise with the exisitng Ages. These are the main options proposed during the discussion: Read more

Heritage Night supervisor DimensionTravelerCalum is calling for speakers for the next round of Sunday nights, with the schedule to be planned around those interested in speaking. He is also updating his call for managers for weekday nights, amending that any language is welcome to be used at HN, not just English.
No previous experience is required, as training will be provided. Previous knowledge of the canonical story itself is not required either. Other recommendations for managing can be found at the previous call for managers on the Heritage Night website.
If you are interested in either job, you can contact DimensionTravelerCalum via the information on the Heritage Night website's Contact page. For more information on HN speaking and managing, click here.
After a bit less than a month, we are back for reporting on the All Guilds Meeting! Since we had the last AGM less than a month ago and it's been summer for most of us, this time, the AGM was not so full, but it still had its informative contents.
And the Summary:
Alien came on the stage to ask everyone to send her their KI marker Quests in an attempt to create what seems like a Marker Quests Repository avatar probably, Alien did not give a lot of details of her plans.
Lyrositor updated us on the situation of Lyrobot. He hasn't been able to work on Lyrobot's code in the last month, but he has been planning some new additions: requested commands to control other creatures, existing commands improvements. He has also added a forum on Lyrobot's website to discuss and make suggestions.
The GoMe has been working on The Cavern Post and on Uru2U. Just today, they have published two new Articles in their magazine, one from Alien about K'veer, and the second article of the series Max is writing about the modern history of the cavern. Uru2U, their video project, has been progressing under the lead of Ahlisendar. the GoMe reminds everyone that anyone can participate in our projects, even if you're not a Guild Member! Read more
Shorah, fellow Myst/URU faithful!
It's been awhile since the Guild has updated about The Starry Expanse project, a fan-made 3D remake of Riven along the lines of RealMyst. The game has been progressing nicely and has had a few big developments as of late. At an appearance at Mysterium, Max "Zib Redlektab" Batchelder presented the latest build of the game on Prison Island and made the incredible announcement that the team has received the full blessing of Cyan Worlds, Inc. to continue working on the game! The company is even providing the source files from the original game for use with the project as well as helping out where they can.
Here are a few video samples from in-game (work-in-progress):
For those with questions about the game (and given the scope of the project, people probably have a lot), the SE team will be conducting an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit at 10:00 AM EDT (2:00 PM GMT or 8:00 AM KI time) to answer those questions. The GoMe will provide a summary of what is discussed afterward.
