2014 continues to roll right along into May, and things are as active as ever in the cavern. This month's All Guilds Meeting had quite a few bits of interesting news. And it wouldn't be a normal AGM news post without a couple of chatlogs, raw and cleansed!
Here's what happened this month:
Vector Cramp returned this month to update everyone about The Lost Art, the group's upcoming machinima project. They have partnered with the creators of DIRT shard to film their episodes. As part of their partnership, the MystiTech team will help DIRT along by playing a few NPCs when the shard is officially released. Anyone interested in contributing to the project is asked to contact MystiTech.
In a recent interview of Rand Miller and John Romero, the creators of Myst and Doom respectively, at the NYU Game Center, both of the legendary video game developers shared, among other things, their points of view on the other's game.
Doom and Myst were both originally released in 1993, and both were highly acclaimed, albeit for drastically different reasons. While Myst became synonymous with the graphical adventure game genre, Doom defined the modern first-person shooter genre for many years. According to the interview, their respective creators both initially expressed a feeling of incredulity and anger when they became aware of the others' game. Read more

We try also gather together as much as possible of the Creative Talents we have in the cavern. Writers, Artists, Age Builders, Musicians, and give them an Open Stage! Let them talk about what they are creating or doing, inspired or not by the Myst Universe. We'll try also to get as many Shards as possible presenting themselves.
We will also discuss a series of Guided Age Tours that could be done at some later point. For further Info and updates as we progress, see: http://mystonline.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=27146

It's been awhile since we've heard from Vector Cramp and crew, but he stopped by to update the crowd on The Lost Art, a machinima project created by him and the MystiTech Productions team. The project continues nicely, and Vector says there will be something exciting announced very soon!
