EDIT: April Fool's! Did we get you?
For many years, the Guild of Messengers and the Guild of Writers have existed as distinct entities in the Uru community. Collaboration and communication have always been the key words to describe our relationship, itself based on a foundation of mutual trust and respect. After much thinking and planning, we have decided to take this one step further: we are proud to announce that both guilds are fusing together to form the Guild of Messengers and Writers!
We'll be providing more information about the GoMaW at the AGM, but here are the essential points you need to know right now. Read more
The DMR will be hosting a live interview with Jack Wall, music composer for Myst III: Exile and Myst IV: Revelation on March 16th at 18:00 KI Time! The DMR is accepting questions from explorers, some of which will be selected for the interview. If you have something you've always wanted to ask him, post quickly in this thread!
This marks the second time the DMR has managed to host such an interview, having already talked to Robyn Miller a few weeks ago (we are preparing a transcript of said interview; stay tuned!). But the DMR isn't stopping here! They've already got an interview with Tim Larkin (music composer for Myst V: End of Ages and Uru: Ages Beyond Myst) set up for some time in April; we'll keep you updated. Keep watching this thread in the meantime for information as it becomes available.
Shorah fellow cavern-dwellers and explorers from the surface!
Are you interested in learning more about the former inhabitants of the cavern and various the Ages in which they used to inhabit?
Well, Zeke and R'tayrtahn have come to the rescue! This duo are now offering weekly tours to expand your knowledge of the D'ni people and their culture. Places visited will vary each week, but here are just few examples:
- Have a pint in the Watcher's sanctuary, with light snacks provided from the DRC cafeteria
- Feed the rare and endangered fish of Kemo
- Take a stroll through the ancient museum of Ae'gura
- Tour the Guild of Caterer's complex on Teledahn
- And so many other locations to explore!
Tours will disembark from the main Ferry Terminal in Ae'gura every Tuesday night @ 22:00 KI time from now until May 7th.
A reception for interested explorers will held a half-hour before the scheduled departure times. Price of admission is free, but group seating of each tour may be limited. Travel to/from the surface is not included in the tour package.
R'tay and Zeke look forward to seeing you there!!!
We're charging right through this year at a crazy pace! This month's All Guilds Meeting came and went and once again, there was much to talk about! Check out the raw and cleansed chatlogs and see how things went.
Here's a summary of the meeting:
Guild of Writers
Hoikas took the time to guage interest in having a St. Patrick's Day parade in Gehn shard. He also mentioned a few statistics about the GoW's shard as well as announcing that the next release, Gehn.15, is expected to be released March 9th, with some bug fixes, a new Tre'bivdil stained glass entry designed by Tweek and modeled for URU by Doobes, and a new Age for all to enjoy!
Mac and rarified gave an update on Minkata and dealings with Cyan. rarified is catching up on some Foundry housekeeping, including compiling a new build of the shard's client, to get ready for new updates and fixes. They're still in contact with Cyan about getting said additions into MOULa soon, reiterating the need for a healthy CAVCON meter to help things along.

As is tradition with every Mysterium, it's time to design a logo for this year's convention! Those explorers that are artistically inclined are welcome to enter for a chance to have their work featured on the official t-shirt and memorabilia. The theme for this year's logo is none other than Myst Island itself. Past years' themes included Kadish Tolesa (2010), Amateria (2011), and most recently, Mechanical Age for 2012's Mysterium.
A list of requirements for the image you want to submit, such as format, resolution, etc. are at the original announcement on the site.
All submissions must be in by April 15th so be sure to get your entries in as soon as possible. For more details on this year's convention, visit our previous news post.
