Prop, coming up!!

I've wanted to own Gehn's pipe for ever since I played the Riven. So here's the start of a dream! I'll post more as it goes, m'kaaay?

Here' s the final, all three angles, only a couple measurements. I'll keep all the rest of those to myself!

I'll post more as this project progresses. It should progress progressively... er, precisely... I'm hoping this is just the beginning!

I can't believe there are still people using pencils and rules to do technical drawings... and even worse, using inches for dimensions. :lol: :P

Nice work!

Don't worry if it says 'image' for a while since it's quit large. Nice work!

Mac_Fife, I took drafting and fabricating in college, I guess it stuck!

It all kind of fell together once I sat down to really do it. A great release, kinda Myst-angsty, if you will.

This is so rough, I know. But I got so freaking excited about getting this far! I just had to share.

Be gentle with any critique, it's still a baby!

It shows promise; can't wait to see the finished product. :)

Seeing this reminds me of the question I had when I first saw the pipe. For one thing, I didn't realize it was a pipe, until later; I think it's shown in one of the game's cinematics. After I realized it is a pipe, I wondered how it's used. I should play "Riven" again to remind myself...

I still don't know how it's supposed to work, either!

During Gehn's speech, you see him light the pipe somehow but his hand is in the way. Unclear.

And he blows smoke a few times, but it's hard to tell if the smoke was during the filming of the actors scenes or in post production. So the pipe might not even actually work in real life! But if it does, it's a mystery to me!

My best guess is that it's kind of like a miniature water pipe, with a separate source of heat. Given that what Gehn is smoking (hazy memory here) is basically nonflammable, I think there's a separate chamber in there somewhere to provide heat, with another place to put the smoke-producing samples. Maybe that's the "desk bell" shaped part. Then the smoke goes into that big, tapered part for cooling, or filtering, or some such.

Or, maybe the "desk-bell" part is the heat source, with heat being drawn into the big chamber to vaporize the sample inside. Until someone finds Gehn's blueprints, you'll just have to make your own guesses. Material in, smoke out... what happens in between, and how does the shape of this device relate to how it functions?

Three pages of artist Heather Larkin's highly detailed visualization of the pipe's usage begin here.
Of course, she has taken artistic license, and this is her interpretation only. But it might be of help to you.

Rehjee, I hope you can eventually submit your plans to machinists and woodworkers, to create a fully-formed pipe! And congratulations on what you've done so far!

That would be fun to make in a graphics program, I wonder if their is a larger scan of the blueprint?

For some reason I thought his pipe included something to do with the Riven frogs (ytram) and fire marbles. Look here: http://www.mystwiki.com/wiki/Ytram
