Attention everyone!  Myst, Riven, Uru fans unite!

Announcing Myst Revival, a new fan site and community hub for all things D’ni and Myst.  

Myst Revival is an attempt to provide a centralized hub for all Myst discussion in the spirit of RivenGuild and Uru Obsession, with the added focus of new Myst projects that we hope will continue to expand the wonderful world of the D’ni and the Myst universe for the next 20 years.

There is games discussion, projects discussion (including DIRT and Starry Expanse) along with a D’ni architecture/art/lore section, fan fiction section and a linguists’ corner.

Come one come all! 

This is so good! I was just thinking that it would be nice to have a shiny new forum for our d’ni meta discussions :D

I’m excited to see that there’s an upswelling of enthusiasm for Myst discussion. At the same time, there’s already fan forums via the Guild of Archivists and MystCommunity  forums, as well as the official forums for both Cyan and Myst Online. Having too many places leads to splitting of community focus.

(Also, while I really like the MystRevival site theme, the header and banner image is very large. I have a small laptop and it winds up taking up half of my browser’s screen - meaning I have to do a lot of scrolling to see content :( )

Thanks for the feedback catpella!  About community splitting, Myst Community which i’ve been a member has run dry in terms of activity and the Cyan forums I feel are a little too attached to Cyan’s company image for comfort.  The MOUL forums on the other hand are specific to MOUL and moreover I wanted a place more focused on the future of Myst rather than Obduction or the past.

Its about reviving and maintaining a great IP in my mind.  I have more specific forum sections related more to D’ni culture and creativity/fan projects that I hope will help coalesce all the great minds in the community.  I miss Uru Obsession and I’m sure some miss RivenGuild. This is my attempt to provide a new base of operation for the next 20 years.  

Any feedback welcome!

I definitely agree about the Myst Online and Cyan forums being too limited. I’m just not sure the solution to “the activity on other forums is running low” is “let’s found a new forum”. Then you have to raise awareness and get people to register and get a movement of people to a new location. Posting more in an existing location, where people do poke back in to check because they’re already aware of it and there’s no effort of “we have to register for a new spot” and “this is a free forum, will it just disappear”, seems a more sensible way to easily revive activity.

This vid is really fucking good but also I want to talk about the song choice, because this mash-up is the most perfect thing I can imagine, for this movie as a whole.

My songs know what you did in the dark 
          —this is it, the apocalypse
so light it up
(welcome to the new age)

I wish I had any idea if the vidder had a tumblr, because I’d have reblogged them so I could gush more meta and y’all could have a rebloggable link without said gushing attatched, but in the mean time, WATCH THIS SHIT.

tagging coffeebased, wolfmight, buckysexual and decertatio because relevant. So fucking relevant.

"Atrus and Catherine’s relationship presented me with an idea that my other stories never touched on — a love that would mellow, mature, and settle down. Those two had their troubles, yes, but most of the time, they hung out in their beautiful home, writing worlds and admiring each other’s brains. A pair of equals who regarded each other with quiet, unwavering devotion. Atrus and Catherine slowly but surely taught me that love didn’t need to be a burning, all-consuming thing. It could be subtle and sustainable, too."  -Becky Chambers

cptprocrastination worstjediever… I don’t even know where to begin with her. If anyone was ever sister by heart than by blood, it’s Cap. Her writing makes me weep (sometimes literally), her characters are incredibly complex, and she as a person? She’s too precious for words. Love ya, Cap.
