Age Comparisons - K'veer

In this article I am going to compare K'veer between the versions in Myst Online: Uru Live Again (MOULa) and Myst V: End Of Ages.

  • NOTE: Myst V: End Of Ages on the left, MOULa on the right

When you start your game in Myst V, you start in the upper room in K'veer surrounded by metal doors, all of which are closed.  With you in the room are a number of Bahro, which soon disappear upon your arrival, leaving you alone.  You notice the room is shaking as the lamps are swinging and there are periodic earthquakes.  What is missing from the centre of the room, which is in MOULa, is the pedestal with the linking book to Myst Library on it.  You'll also notice the walls are brighter in Myst V and rock above the doors is darker and more pronounced in MOULa.  The floor pattern is also different.  This room appears in other games as well, namely Myst and Riven, with Atrus sitting at the desk.

A Journey Without An Ending: Part 2 - The Journey Continues

Disclaimer: This series of articles is written in-character (IC) and are mainly based on known facts or research. Although Max has taken some liberties or "artistic license" in some parts, like in adapting or intertwining the gameplay or the fiction into facts of reality, the article has been fact-checked by others in the GoMe and in most aspects is, to the best of our knowledge, factually accurate.

In Part 1, we learned how John Loftin discovered an entrance to the large cavern known as D'ni and how Elias Zandi and Loftin made their first expeditions down the lava tunnels.  Later, during a more than three-week-long expedition, they were accompanied by Dr. Richard A. Watson as the third member of their group of explorers. On that trip down to the cavern in the summer of 1991, John Loftin lost his life in a tragic accident that left the other two absolutely devastated. Despite this enormous setback and loss of life, Zandi and Watson were still determined to carry on and explore further what their late companion had discovered.

They had also started to work on the writings they had brought with them back to the surface; specifically, attempting to translate what, to their knowledge at the time, was a dead language.  In the latter part of 1991, they were finally able to translate some journals written by a young woman known as  Katran  or Catherine (she had been called both, apparently due to a mispronunciation by her husband).  Elias had also in correspondence with  Rand  and Robyn Miller told them about the group's progress and kept them updated on their findings.   Lire la suite

A Journey Without An Ending: Part 1 - Where It All Started

Disclaimer: This series of articles is written in-character (IC) and are mainly based on known facts or research. Although Max has taken some liberties or "artistic license" in some parts, like in adapting or intertwining the gameplay or the fiction into facts of reality, the article has been fact-checked by others in the GoMe and in most aspects is, to the best of our knowledge, factually accurate.

Just like many others making the Journey, I've been amazed by what I've seen and experienced. Many explorers still find their way down to the cavern and the magic world of the D'ni culture, visting the Ages and the remains of a once great underground city. So it might be interesting for all those newcomers, and perhaps also for old "veteran explorers" of the Cavern as well, to try and recapture how this all came about.

On one of my several trips down to the cavern a few years ago, I happened to ask Jeff Zandi if he'd like to tell me a bit about the discovery of the city and the D'ni inhabitats.  By then, I had already mentioned to him about my visits to some European caves and about my writings for some magazines; we shared the same interest for archeology. With a bit of persuasion, this genuinely nice fellow finally agreed. Lire la suite

The Return of Heritage Night

Heritage Night is back yet again! 

For those that have not heard of it, It is an event where new explorers can learn all about the history of what has happened in the cavern so far. We strive to make sure people know what has come before them. The schedule for this round is a bit wacky, so these weeks are the confirmed ones that we'll be doing before Mysterium. I'll add the August schedule once I know for sure what's up.

HN will take place on every Sunday in July at 12:00 KI time in the Heritage Night Hood.

Heritage Night was started in late 2010 by Carl Palmner for the benefit of new explorers who could not be there for the Previous Restorations.

Unwritten - Adventures in the Ages of Myst and Beyond

Ce qu'un grand nombre de nos meilleurs physiciens ont soupçonné depuis longtemps est, en vérité, vrai : au-delà de notre univers, il y a une infinité d'autres d'une variété inimaginable. Mais l'humanité ne s'est jamais rendue compte que le secret de ces mondes se trouvait sous ses pieds. Pour dix millénaires, les D'ni vivèrent dans de vastes cavernes, ignorant les primitifs vivant à la surface. Grâce à leurs livres de liaison, ils construisirent un empire qui s'étendait sur plusieurs dimensions. Sa gloire fut brutalement interrompue il y a quelque centaines d'années, et leur cité est demeurée vide... jusqu'à aujourdh'ui.

Des petits groupes d'humains ont découvert les secrets de la Cité des Profondeurs. Certains sont venus pour l'explorer, et d'autres sont venus pour l'exploiter. Certains ont été attirés à D'ni par un sentiment qu'ils ne peuvent décrire, et ont essayé d'en faire leur domicile. D'autres explorent les Âges, les univers qui viennent soudainement de s'ouvrir à eux, et ils y voient des opportunités et de l'espoir. Et il y a ceux parmi les Âges qui ne sont pas heureux de voir D'ni respirer de nouveau.

La civilisation D'ni n'est plus. Mais la fin n'a pas été écrite. Lire la suite
