Mysterium 2015, the next annual Myst fan convention and gathering, will take place in Boston from August 7-9th. The committe that planned Mysterium 2011 is back, along with some new faces, to plan a Mysterium like no other. The committee is still scouting out hotels, but plans to have pre-registration open by the end of the year.
This year's convention will be themed around the age Todelmer (pictured).
With this announcement comes the launch of the Logo Contest. The committee is accepting front and back shirt logo designs until December 29th, 2014 inspired by Todelmer and the city of Boston. If you or someone you know is interested in submitting a logo, please see the complete rules and information page here.
For more information as planning continues, stay tuned to the Mysterium website.
For all those people who couldn't make it to Mysterium, the annual fan-run convention for Myst and URU, here's a summary of what you missed (just like us actually).
Friday, August 1st
Cleft Location Research Panel
Ainia has been working on finding the location of the cleft for a long time now, starting a huge forum thread on the Myst Online forums. At Mysterium, she gave a summary of the findings so far and held a short Q&A. You can read the summary and transcript of the Q&A here and the forum topic here.
K'laamas managed to get some more words from Richard "RAWA" Watson at Cyan and presented a few new D'ni words. There was also a D'ni phrases handout given out to everyone who attended. If you're interested in the D'ni language, check out the Guild of Linguists.
Saturday, August 2nd
As the various members of the cavern community are likely aware, Mysterium 2014 is currently underway in Spokane, Washington. This includes a visit by attendees to Cyan's headquarters, along with a scheduled rare appearence of both Rand and Robyn Miller to this year's conference.
For those unable to attend, a live stream has been set up so interested explorers can follow along.
That, along with a live chat (you'll need to sign up for a free account to participate), can be found at the conventions Justin.tv page.
We here at the Guild of Messengers will keep you informed as the weekend's events continue to unfold.
We’re so excited about this year’s Mysterium, and we can’t wait to see you all in Spokane. Shorah b’shemtee!
