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

Missions Complete

It's been a while since I have managed to post and it's also hangin' with iota in cavern has been a little sparse because of me: time, sick, etc.  Anyway!  I am pleased to announce that iota has completed all marker missions and has calibrated her KI!  I have to say it is difficult tailing someone when you can't see the markers also.  I could have redone the missions myself, but no way in hell!

Here is a bit of a complaint.  Yesterday, when she was making her last rounds, we encountered a pair who called her rude because she didn't respond when they said she had a nice shirt.  People.  It is not always clear to someone if you are talking to them.  It is not always the case that they see your message because they might be talking to someone else.  OR they might be occupied away from their computer at the time.  Maybe eating a sandwich, or visiting the bathroom, or in another window on their computer.  Lastly, one should not make judgments in a GAME where we are strangers communicating via text.  Sometimes between friends tone in text-based messages can be misconstrued.  So do not call someone rude in a game just because they didn't say thanks when you say their avatar has a nice shirt.  If someone doesn't respond to you, shrug it off and go elsewhere.  Don't be vain and take everything personally.  99% of the time it has nothing to do with you.

I think iota found it a bit anti-climatic when nothing exciting happened after her KI was calibrated.  I told her once upon a time there was a purpose, but this is no longer so.  At least if I remember correctly.  There are a few things that are no longer functioning in this version of the game compared to the single-player version -- such as that door in the Watcher's Pub, but I don't think people miss that very much.

So now iota has three more Ages to complete a a few others to visit, plus the garden Ages.  I have one Age to complete.  We will have to collect a posse for a door run, but my unsociability prevents me from wanting to do this.

To end on a high note, if you are hitherto unawares, the Obduction logo can be found in your wardrobe to apply to a shirt.  Just scroll through the logos until you find it.  It will appear on the front and back of the shirt.  Also there's a new midriff top for the ladies.  I'm not sure if there are any other new clothes.  I'm a little befuddled by the midriff, but if that's your thing then you can take advantage.
New Obduction shirt!
