Am stuck on a steam vent pillar after touching the cloth jumping to the pillar and closing the vent lid. I can't seem to make the jump to the other side! Help! It is getting hot up there!

This is, maybe, the part about URU that's unlike Myst: Sometimes you have no choice but to link back to Relto (unless I'm very much mistaken, that is...)

Doesn't hurt the game though. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

You can make the jump if you jump off the back side of the pillar.

You can jump from the steam vent mesa in the lava to the ground near where the two covered vents are close to the pile of boulders.

Start at the far edge of the steam vent mesa, facing the side. Get a good line of sight to where you want to land. Take a short running start, and do a running jump, not taking your hands from the keys until you land, and run a little ways up onto the solid ground.

If you stop running too soon, you'll slide off into the lava.

Thanks it worked! Whew, cooled off at last! Did better linking back.

One time it took me a frigging hour to jump off this damn pillar. I knew I had to make it 'cause each time I linked back to Relto I ended up at the Journey cloth above the pillar again.

It was only after all this stuffing about that I realised you could turn the page in your linking book and get back to the beginning of the age.

Frankly, as much as I need excerise, I could do without the running and jumping. More sitting and sproinging into the air would be preferable to me.
