Ages & Areas

Channelwood

Channelwood

Written By: Atrus

Written by Atrus during his exile on Myst with his wife and family, and one of the few books that survived the betrayal of Sirrus and Achenar. The Age is a forest growing out of the water that seems to cover the entire planet. Before his sons betrayed him the age was full of natives, monkey like humanoids, Atrus managed to learn a little of their language, his sons however learned more then he did.

Like so many of Atrus’ Ages of the Myst period Channelwood is now abandoned and all but lifeless.

D’ni

D'ni

Written By: Ri’Neref

With the destruction of their home world Garternay upon them, a skilled writer of the Ronay, Ri’Neref wrote the Age of D’ni (Earth). Wanting to separate from the “abuse” of The Art as he saw it Ri’Neref collected his followers and moved to a cavern under New Mexico, this place was to be called D’ni along with its people after time had passed.

The D’ni lived and thrived for 10,000 years, writing Links to thousands of worlds until the great empire fell. Now all that is left is the ruins of the D’ni civilization left to age for 250 years

Mechanical

Mechanical

Written By: Atrus

The Mechanical Age was one home to a city nestled between three great hills, upon these hills the natives of the Age had set watch towers. From across the horizon the Black Ships came, they attacked the city and sank it into the sea, all that now remains is the tops of the old watch towers. It was said that the Black Ships would one day return to finish what they started, and until the Black Ships were gone for good the sky in the Age would be forever cloudy.

Atrus and his sons built the fortress on the Age to house and protect the surviving natives of the Age should the Black Ships return.

Myst

Myst

Written By: Ti’ana (Anna)

Myst was written by Atrus’ grandmother Ti’ana during the events that were unfolding on Riven [see: Book of Atrus]. The Age served as a haven for Atrus and his family for many years until his sons betrayal. A hub between all the Ages Atrus wrote it later became a sore memory of the events that transpired between the family and their sons betrayal.

After 250 years left untouched Myst fell into dis-repair its only visitor the D’ni archivist Esher

Selenitic

Selenitic

Written By: Atrus

Selenitic was an Age of lush greens, yet it gave Atrus a feeling of discomfort when he first arrived there. It was shortly after that a huge meteor storm reshaped the Age forever, its lush greens becoming barren browns. The only green surviving was a small area which Atrus called the oasis, its waters shaded by the few remaining trees.

The Age was home to a number of Atrus’ experiments, the most obvious ones associated with sounds created by the Ages natural features, along with the man-made structures

Stoneship

Stoneship

Written By: Atrus

Atrus was surprised to find a group of youths upon the almost barren Age when he first arrived, basking in the sun, the cool breeze of the Age keeping the temperature from getting to hot. It was only after Atrus arrived that the storms began, scaring the 3 boys who lived on the Age.

Attempting an experiment in the Art, Atrus tried writing a ship into the Age. His experiment failed when the ship became lodged on the rock, thus giving the Age its name.
