Has anyone else wondered if the tusks found in various places in URU are Wahrk tusks, which can be seen all over Riven? If so, what does this mean? Also there are giant tusks in Exile, not sure how that might be related, either.

Those in Relto and in the Bahro cave are definitely not wahrk tusks, which are slightly S-shaped. The Relto ones could be from Laki whales, though. Those in J’nanin I’ve always assumed they’re actually stone, and those in the Bahro cave could be wood.

Well, ok, I hadn't played Myst V yet. I looked up the Laki whales. But yeah, what is up with the tusk theme running through the Myst series anyway? Especially two whales with tusks, and then other tusks littered everywhere...

I don't remember offhand but I thought they said what the tusks in Myst III are made of and that they are not Wahrk tusks.

In Riven, it probably was a display of power by Gehn. In Relto, well, I guess taste can be hereditary :lol: .

Please note that Myst 5 Laki whales can be seen up close only with the help of the flymode. :(
