How True

I came across this quote on Uru Obsession, and the original poster found it on eBay, I think. The first few lines are so true:

I used to think of myself as immune to addiction. I’ve never been ensnared by alcohol or drugs, never run up huge credit-card balances with compulsive shopping, never smoked — I don’t even gamble. Watching various friends battle their own habits, I’ve occasionally envied them the drama of it all, but mostly I’ve felt a little (well, maybe more than a little) superior.

That was before I found Myst…

I’ve recently realized just how obsessed I am with the Myst series. I really am obsessed. I spend most of my free time on Uru Obsession, I have a massive collection of Myst games and collectible items, I even have two original concept sketches from Myst.

In a discussion I was having with a friend of mine two days ago, I mentioned how much more obsessed with the series I was than him (however, we met on UO, so we both must be pretty obsessed) and he said “yeah, I’m not as obsessed as you are. I get bored the third time through the games”. This made me stop and realize the extent of my obsession.

Am I sorry? Do I wish I wasn’t obsessed/addicted?

Hell no.

DRC Liasons, Part Deux

The DRC Liasons are the members of the Myst community who act as a link between the DRC and the community. Well, I’ve been nominated to be a candidate to become one of the 5 DRC Liasons. Pretty sweet. Vote for me! :) I’m working on my campaign material at the moment… :)

Galamay 2

Today I’m releasing Galamay Area 2/Version 2. It’s a custom-made age for Uru Complete Chronicles that I’ve been working on for more than 7 months, and I’m finally releasing it. To download it, get the Uru Age Manager and download it from there. For more information about Galamay, visit the Galamay Log (It’s In Character, so might not provide much information). Happy exploring!

RAWA and the Town Hall Delay

All you Uru fans out there know about the Town Hall meetings. They are meetings between the Myst/Uru fan community and members of Cyan Worlds or the DRC (D’ni Restoration Council, which is Cyan’s In-Character group and the focal point of the Uru Live storyline). There is currently a Town Hall meeting taking place on the D’mala shard in the Town Hall Neighborhood, with Rand Miller (one of the founders of Cyan Worlds and the current CEO, I think). This meeting was originally planned for yesterday, but RAWA (Richard A. Watson, another very influential and senior member of Cyan Worlds) posted the following on the official forums two or three days ago:

I’m very sorry to have to announce this, but something has come up and the Town Hall with Rand needs to be postponed by 24 hours. It will now be held on Tuesday, July 18, at 9am Cavern Time.

It’s postponed for a nice reason, and hopefully you’ll agree that it was worth the extra 24 hour wait.

:)

RAWA

This of course got everyone very excited, because we (being the community we are) automatically jump to conclusions and assume the best. Uru Live Beta is starting! However, now the meeting is going on and RAWA has posted this:

The “surprise” for tomorrow’s town hall is not going to happen tomorrow after all. Due to circumstances beyond Cyan’s control, the earliest it can happen will be late next week. The C.O. Meter will be knocked down a few notches to commiserate the delay.

Argh! Ok so we have to wait another week until we get out surprise. Oh well. Oh and the C.O. Meter is the Cautious Optimism Meter, which is what we Uru fans are supposed to have. Cautious optimism. Screw that, says I. I predicted the return of live, and even got the date for the announcment right. I’ve known that it would come back from the moment Cyan got back on their feet. I don’t have an ounce of Cautious Optimism in my blood, just full blown optimism. : D AND I’M PROUD OF IT!

Agebuilder.org Update

*Phew* After one day, forum.agebuilder.org and http://www.agebuilder.org are back online, with no hackers or malware present. I would recommend a virus scan on your computer anyway, especially if you’re using IE. ;)

Agebuilder.org Hacked!

Agebuilder.org, the hub of Age Creation for Uru, has been hacked…again. This time, the site has been given a .exe malware file that auto-downloads when you visit the site, so DO NOT VISIT AGEBUILDER.ORG! Thankfully no posts or wiki info were lost, but the site is currently inaccessible to anyone who doesn’t want a virus.

I’m an admin there, so I feel responsible, but there are multiple people working on it now, and I’ll hinder more than I’ll help.

This seems to be a trend now. This is the second hack against Agebuilder.org, plus the DJC was hacked not long ago and of course COBBS lost everything a year ago. There has been an increase of spambots as well. People seem to be plotting against the Myst community…:(

Uru Live ‘Blue Sky’

On the Uru Live Website, under the in developement section, there’s that “Blue Skies” section. I like most of what I see, the vehicles, the guild system, etc. The guild system is a great idea, very much like the ancient D’ni society.

Then there’s the one I don’t understand. “Player mounts”? What are player mounts? I know the answer is lurking somewhere on the Uru Live forums, but I’m afraid to wade through the posts there looking for the answer, because of the fact that there are already over 4000.

Lastly, there’s the pets. Yes, I said pets. In Uru. That’s just over the top and completely uncalled for. If you want pets in a video game, play this, this, or this. Don’t pollute our great game with your furry poop machines, please.
