Please note that the submission guidelines have changed. For the new rules, see the link.
The MOULa servers are currently down without announcement from Cyan (well, it is easter monday after all).
So don't panic, if MOULa gives an error/crashes/doesn't work it is not you. So you don't have to reinstall or anything.
Edit : and they are up again!
How have you been? We’ve been *really* busy, preparing some Mysterium news for you!
Mini no more?
Given the numbers we got on our polls, we have decided to drop the ‘mini’. This is now a full-on Mysterium, with support from some members of the normal Mysterium Committee. That said, we are still running from our own website (http://mysterium.zibland.com/), and questions should be sent to our Digital Non-sentient Indicator (or D’NI for short) at .
Do you have 1337 art skills? Do you love Amateria? Did you skip those last two questions? Then have we got a contest for you! Read more
The "mini-Mysterium Commitee" is currently accepting submissions for both T-Shirt and Convention Logos for this years Mysterium convention. Here are details for the submission process:
- The convention theme is Amateria
- All designs should be 150dpi/ppi and submitted as a jpg or png (should the design be chosen we may contact you for the original file)
- Shirt Front/Back designs should be 2100px by 1800px (or 1800px by 2100 px)
- Convention Logo (which may double as a mini-shirt logo) should be 600px by 600px
- Entries will be accepted until May 7th
For more information on how to enter the contest, see the link below.
N.B This is not the official Mysterium. It started out as mini-Mysterium but then grew out of the "mini" tag.
Heritage Night is a weekly event where one section of (Game Tap Era) Myst Online URU Live's History is retold in the IC POV for the benefit of new explorers who have not heard the History of what came before..
Heritage Night was started by Carl Palmner in Late 2010 and is now on its Third incarnation, managed by Calum Traveler (DTC) and hosted by whomever is selected for that night. It is held in the Heritage Night Bevin, and typically runs for One hour (although it may go on longer depending on the script).
As always, we are looking for Hosts. If you are interrested in Hosting Heritage Night, or even are simply wanting to know more Infomation about Heritage Night, please contact DTC at KI#: 203751.
Depending on the Host of the evening, there may be a Field Trip planned for each evening, related to that night's specific topic. If possible, a Marker Game, detailing key events noted durring the night, will be handed out as well.
No guild of fine artists? That doesn't mean the creative side of the community isn't doing anything. On deviantart there are several Myst/Uru groups and (currently) the most active one is holding a contest!
The Myst-fanclub's Make one- Share one comptetion has been a very succesfull contest in the past and the idea is simple
In Make One, Share One participants will create an art piece representing a character or element from their favorite Myst game. This can be in any visual media except animation or literature (drawings, paintings, models, embroidery, woodwork, bead work, etc. are fine). This is an opportunity for members to stretch their creative wings and to provide awards for future club-sponsored competitions.
The deadline is 21 May. See the link below for more information. To participate one must be a member of Deviantart and of the group, both are free >.>
The Guild of Writers has relaunched its website, giving the a new layout which is more user-friendly. Development Journals have also been revamped, giving artists and programmers a central place for blogging about their guild-related projects.
Along with the website relaunch, the Guild has created a development branch of the CyanWorlds.com Engine because the Guild Council feels that a locally maintained branch is the best way to serve the needs of the community. To that end, we will make every effort to share our progress with other development groups.
(See http://guildofwriters.com or the link below for additional information.)
Check out the new cavern project I've started. The goal is to plan events through the month of April so that the month of May can be all about Myst. From cavern events, to marker games, to reading the Myst novels, to sitting down for a playthrough of Myst IV anyone can participate in or out of cavern. I still need several people to help out so stop by the MOUL forums and see what all the fuss is about!
At approximately 14:36 KItime, Chogon released a message from Rand saying that open source was finally ready.
The sources for the MOULA Client Engine and Development Tools are going to be available as open source. In addition, MOSS, a replacement for the MOULA server, written by a'moaca' and cjkelly, has been released. The MOULA servers will continue to operate normally. For more information on this exciting new development see Chogon’s post .
Cyan has been collaborating with some people from the community, among which is JWPlatt, the founder of OpenUru.org, which is now the official place where the sources of Uru Open Source are hosted.
