I realized the moment I fell into the fissure that the Book would not be destroyed as I had planned. It continued falling into that starry expanse, of which I had only a fleeting glimpse. I have tried to speculate where it might have landed, but I must admit that such conjecture is futile. Still, questions about whose hands might one day hold my Myst book are unsettling to me. I know my apprehensions might never be allayed, and so I close, realizing that perhaps the ending has not yet been written. -- Atrus

Guides for your entertainment

Hi folks!  You've probably already played and finished Obduction.  In any case, if you or someone you know have/has not, then I made some fun little guides for the Villein number puzzle and the two-parter Gauntlet.  Maray's adorable triplets.  (Apparently I have nothing better to do with my time, such as, say, proposal writing O.O)

I posted the Villein one already, but thought I may as well list them both together.  Go forth and conquer!

As I have said elsewhere, if you find any mistakes or places that require improvement, please let me know.  I couldn't re-test my Gauntlet guide because after downloading patch #2 from Steam, my game, horror of horrors, keeps crashing.

Ha!  A line from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom just popped into my head!  You receive an automatic imaginary cookie if you guess which one.

The Gauntlet one completely reevaluates the puzzle, and has vastly improved upon my "understanding" and infographics of the puzzle in my earlier posts.  There are other things in the game that I need to reevaluate now that I've gone through it once.  It's always exciting to learn new stuff each time you play Cyan games!

It was a lot of fun to make these little beauties.  I hope they are equally enjoyed.
