I doubt you’ll find a more thorough dictionary than the one by Kh’reestrefah.

It is the most comprehensive, but sweet Maker, the colours o.O Blade can tell from across the room when I'm looking something up there. :D

We know of at least one; see Reekoo. And, Atrus had a cat in the cleft named Flame.

I'm also voting for the Squee since Saavedro** kept a "pet"** one strapped to his arm :?; and it appears Atrus imported a couple from Edanna to serve as part of J'nanin's lessons for his sons.

They are certainly pettable in my Relto! :P

A'gaeris and Veovis kept a hunting bird in their Age (though it wasn't exactly friendly to them!). But there doesn't seem to have been anything comparable to dogs and cats in terms of ubiquity.

Hey folks. Due to real life dramas I've been away from the forums and MOUL for sometime. It's good to see this thread has taken off though.

If there is this much interest in some kind of Myst Lore-like resource, maybe as a community we could band together to build a wiki or something. We could add what we know and if/when we hear from the MystLore folks we could integrate the info. Just an idea.

Here's one thought....

There's a group called the 'Shoddycast', and what they do is create youtube videos that are like little documentaries that delve into the lore of video games.

I am particularly enjoying the series they have done on The Elder Scrolls... they will pick a topic, such as a historical moment or a noteworthy character, and do a 10 to 15 minute 'episode' about that subject.. it's a narrator speaking over a re-enactment of the events done on a modded version of the game. I don't know exactly how 'spoilers' are handled.. occasionally references are made to the player character as an 'unknown hero' etc... but to me, it mostly seems like backstory and canon without many spoilers.

Here's there second season of the Elder Scrolls lore series, for reference:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZjneISs-vA&list=PL7pGJQV-jlzB-qocScD0wPA5twwi1IM5p

There certainly should be a book, a written reference, a website, etc.. for the canon and the lore of Myst.... in this day and age, I also think an entertaining, easily-digestible series of videos would do well to get people's attention about the Myst series.

With all the shards, modded content, fan ages, bots, 'magic' Ages in existence, I am sure a small group of motivated explorers could probably do a similar series of videos about Myst.


....just putting it out here...

I'd be more than happy to help with such a thing.

Location: Digging around in the dusty archives, uncovering Uru history.
Here is a list of Myst-Uru Resource sites to get you started:

Kh’reestrefah's D'ni Dictionary

Norfren's Uru Glossary (MOUL)

The D'ni Desk Reference: WM archived link, February 22, 2008

Guild of Archivists

Ainia's The Watson Letters

Tweek's D'ni Archive at Beneath

The History of the Great Tree videos, documentaries of the Uru Live Prologue (2003). (The Story of The Great Tree forum discussions)

chucker's MYSTlore: MYSTlore WM archived link, December 20, 2011, MYSTlore pages hosted by OHB

MYSTAges

Myst Wiki

Mac_Fife's D'ni Sphider, a Myst-Uru-Cyan specific search engine.

Marten's rel.to, a directory of community websites.

I have loads more links, but I believe there's a character limit on these posts. :wink:

Rather than duplicate efforts or re-invent the wheel, you might want to check with some of the current sites - like the Guild of Archivists - and see if you can contribute to it.

Seconding Tai'lahr's comment that honestly, contributing to an existing project such as the Guild of Archivists is much better than starting anew.

Helping flesh out the Guild of Archivists would be an awesome thing to do. I know poor 'nat has been trying to do it single-handedly :/
