They are sought after by both Gehn, (because they make a pleasant extract for his pipe) and the Moiety, who use its poison for their darts.


Sounds intoxicating :shock:

Fire marbles and Ytram, both hard to come by!

I'd love to make a functioning version, but one step at a
time. I think the most beautiful and efficient way of building the thing would be wood and metal work, but I don't have access to a shop. Yet.

I have friends who build pipes! But it's still a mystery how the thing would work in real life. Fitting the regular pipe mechanics into the thing is going to be a really interesting challenge!!

From what I've seen, it would not function like a straightforward tobacco pipe, as it seems that the herbal/ytram extract/whatever mixture that Gehn was smoking does not stay alight without an external heat source - hence the need for a fire marble or something similar to keep it alight. A near equivalent in RL would be a hookah or hubble-bubble pipe, where the substance to be smoked is held in a little metal basket and the smoke is drawn through water in the base. There may even be a water space in Gehn's pipe - it is hard to be sure.

A replica would need a space for the substance-to-be-smoked and a hot coal to fire it - so it would need to be metal, glass or ceramic.

I could be wrong but I think what you got here is a dry pipe with two bowls one for herb and one for a solid extract with each bowl having a cap.

If you have the Riven soundtrack CD, there's a better picture of Gehn's pipe. Unfortunately. there's no description to go with it.

Here's a detail of texture that I've sculpted into the "wooden" pipe base. Gosh the image is big!!

And nice work, Karkadann!! It totally makes me feel part of the community, inspiring people.

You realize that's not real deni but English with Deni letters instead of Romain(?) letters? Either way it cool!

Not yet, let's make sure I can really do a convincing pipe first.

Alright. So, I've been posting this on a couple forums, but this is the thread with the most lively response. I love myst fans!!

Here's an update for you all:

Sculpt and test paint! I'm still trying to nail down the right colors for everything, so forgive me for the cartoonyness.

Finished enough for tonight!!

There's still some things that I'd like to adjust, like the length and angle of the stem, as well as a couple things to keep the bell from falling off, but here's what I have so far. Good enough to share, I think.

What do YOU think!?

I'm hoping to get some more professional pictures in the next day or so and post them.

I'm so excited about finally having this thing in my life!!
