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

Starting Over: Myst Online Relaunch!

UPDATE:  I guess what had happened was mega system failure and they had to move to a new server to reboot.  Thus, this has brought many dormant players back to life so that they can get back their finished journey.  Be prepared to see more people in the cavern.  This is great, actually, because I never did my door runs in Tsogal and Delin...

I logged on to Myst Online this evening when what to my wondering eyes should appear a screen indicating I had to create a new explorer.  Wait, what?  I logged off, thinking it was a mistake, and then back on again.  Nope, not a mistake.

Cue me swearing up, down, and sideways.

What has happened to my avatar?!  What about all that progress I had made?  All those Ages solved, clothes, Relto Pages, and calendar sparks collected.  Dear God, if I have to go through Minkata again...

Immediately, as I awaited iota's imminent "WTF" email, I zipped over to the MOULa forums and found that Chogon had posted an announcement yesterday about this very issue: READ.

Good news: Myst Online has been relaunched.

Bad news: You have to do everything all over again.  But more good news, there will be some new content coming our way!  (I keep chanting that to cover up my irritation.)

iota at least had not gotten very far in the game, so luckily she will still get to experience most everything afresh.  

I just keep thinking of the stuff I have to do over, like the marker hunts, Eders Gira/Kemo, and finding my Minkata boots.

One thing that was pretty cool was since iota and I recreated ourselves at the same time we ended up in the same Hood.  Small things...

My new KI is 00212408 if anyone wants to add me.  Crap.  I have to update my banner now.  I hope I still have the files for it...
