Was the Great Scream on OOC event that occurred during Uru incarnations or something that actually happened in the cavern?

After if it did happen in the cavern/ages, how was it different than the usual baharo scream we hear from day to day?

(Askin' for story-writing purposes.)

It happened on the D'mala shard - see here for an earlier enquiry about it: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=20418

Unfortunately, the link that appears in the thread to a video of the event no longer works, and I don't know of a "live" copy anywhere.

There's much to read about 'this event' and to catch the energy of those moments before and after on the DRC forum's 'OOC section' (maybe in the others too, just have a look) on page 7 ... Scroll down to around the 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st etc. of Dec 2006 ... There's an interesting thread by RAWA too 'Spoiler: The Scream Heard 'Round the Ages' ... I couldn't find a link to that video yet though ... :D

Ohhh, I have it ... There you are ... Enjoy ... :)

And this was the new beginning, in case you'll need it for your story ... :P

I downloaded a video from somewhere of the Great Scream, (probably The link above, actually XD).

But yeah, the Great Scream was an event that happened in-game. Was quite the thing, using the Biggest and Loudest Bahro scream there was.

Was that the same event in which every single Relto was reset?

Imagine the commotion if that happened now :lol:

Yup, it was the exact same event that all Reltos and Ages were reset.

Now who says *that* will be what happens?!?

There are other Messengers and explorers who have assured me these "alternate Urus" do indeed exist.

At very least, adi claims to have met a female Nev'yn in a part of Ae'gura called "Vothal" which I have never personally explored. Apparently she was having technical issues with her KI device just before linking via the Nexus to the GoW pub. (The two incidents may or may not be related.)

Be that as it may, I'll try to compile a story of such accounts from the GoMe archive sometime within the near future. :lol:


I have a few of my own ideas on the subject.... :wink:

None at all.

"Oh, everything reset again? I guess that's that's the fourth time now, huh? Remember when this used to be surprising?"

The Great Scream indeed took place. It served as a way to explain the transition from the D'mala server (running the old Uru Live software) to the new Myst Online: Uru Live server.
Staying IC, we could blame the Bahro for 'resetting' everything. While in truth, we switched to another server, to new software, so it wasn't really that things had been reset, we actually started anew.
On the new server, the MOUL storyline started, with the DRC having returned. Because of the Great Scream they had closed off most parts of Ae'gura to investigate if anything had happened. This allowed Ae'gura to be re-released bit by bit, while the small team at Cyan had some more time to work on new Ages.

So, the server changed, but the client was the same? And you could keep your KI number under Gametap? Nice :)

No.

And no.

You had to start over. The bahro scream was another silly IC hack (just like those "bahro costumes") to explain away why everyone was suddenly in their Reltos. :(
