All Guilds Meeting - March 2016

It's the beginning of a new month, so of course that means a traditional All Guilds Meeting to help start things off properly!  If you missed part or all of it, we have the usual raw and cleansed chatlogs, as well as a handy summary:

Guild of Writers

Hoikas was first to talk about the next version of Korman, the newest plugin for Age building and exporting.  Version 0.04 will have, amongst other new features, the ability to export sounds.  It will be released in a couple of weeks in parallel with Blender 2.77, the latest version of that software as well.  Due to important changes and upgrades, starting with 0.04, Korman will only work with Blender 2.77 or above, so Blender 2.74 will no longer be needed after that.

Mister Magic

Michel, aka Mister Magic, announced a new series of events utilizing the lighting effects of explorer Yoda, dubbed "The Magical Fireworks Tour (MFT)".  Every Thursday starting at 13:00 KI time, you'll be able to see fireworks in Magic Bot's magic version of the Ages. Read more

Music from the Ages

Karel will once again be playing 'Music from the Ages' on Sunday, March 13th at 13:00 KI time in DRC(1059) Hood (which will be bumped in the Nexus), so be sure to stop in! 
 
Karel will be playing Myst III music this week, with a few tracks from the Lord of the Rings trilogy as pre-event music. The music stream can be found at this link the day of the event.

It is hoped to make this a fortnightly (bi-weekly) concert to continue in the spirit of the nice sessions started by the very-missed Patricio.

Karel hopes to see you there, but if you can't make it, you can always just listen to the music stream.

Obduction Releases in June

It's been hinted as "second quarter of 2016" up until now, but Obduction, Cyan, Inc.'s spiritual successor to Myst, is now set to be released in June of this year!

For those that are just hearing about this (and really, where have you been?), Obduction was successfully funded by fans through Kickstarter and has been in development since then.  Many familiar faces have returned for the project, including Robyn Miller, who will be composing the game's soundtrack, his first for the company since Riven in 1997.

How was the June release month announced?  Why, with a shiny new trailer of course!

You can view the new teaser trailer by clicking here.

There will be more news as it comes in, including when an actual date in June is officially announced.

D'ni Language 101

The D’ni 101 classes will begin on Friday, April 15th at 22:00 KI time and run through May 20th. There will be a repeat starting on Saturday, April 16th at 10:00 KI time, more favorable for those who live in Europe. Both classes will be held in the Guild of Instructors' Hood.

The first lesson will take about 90 minutes, the second and third lessons will take about an hour, and the last three lessons will take 30–60 minutes.

The Guild of Instructors' Hood will be made public for the half-hour prior to the start of the first class. It will be made private once the class begins to avoid interruptions. Those who will be late should send Rehn a PM to get an invite.
