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

One Down, Many to Go!

I am pleased to announce that iota has returned to Uru!

Last Saturday was one of glorious success!  She returned to Eders Gira/Kemo to try to complete the Ages and finally get the better of the fireflies.

The usual bugginess hindered us again.  Or rather it hindered me because after she would link back to Gira from Kemo I would see the fireflies and the baskets move when she walked on them but I couldn't see her avatar.  This is really frustrating!  However. it seems that it only does this in these Ages.  It reminded me, sort of, of Ahnonay where
.

As soon as she learned how to keep the fireflies while moving past the first waterfall everything moved quickly from there.  I gave only a few hints, such as "continue walking through the waterfall" and also I directed her to the reward clothing -- her first!

Unfortunately, I was struck down with fatigue and a sore throat and I decided not to finish with her that night.  All she had left to do was go through the Journey Door.  I asked her later what took place and she had this to say:
When I opened the door it was dark so I thought I needed more fireflies, but they went away as soon as I entered :)  So I kept walking and was transported to a purple light room and told to collect the pillars so I thought I had to jump to each platform and touch the hand, but fell into a very pretty "sky". I was placed back at my homebase and the first pillar is now on my island. :D 
I am so excited that she was able to complete the Age!  And all by herself, too!  I told her that I needed a lot of help with this Age, as I tend to with most Ages haha!

She hasn't collected the Relto page from Eder Kemo, but I am hesitant to tell her about it at the moment because that's one of the most annoying ones to access in the whole game!  Oh I should also have told her that she can take some fireflies with her to Relto!

Looking forward to more!
