    Help!!! I am sooooo lost. I found the "secret" places, the papers, the note from, uh, that guy who's name starts with "A" (sorry, I can't spell tonight) and I found the rotator thing. Oh, yeah, I also found the glowy crystals and the strange box down at the foot of the throne. What do I do? I also opened up the stairs down to the gear thing. I have no idea how these things tie together or what in the world to do with them. Any help, nudge, spoiler or complete walk through, is welcome.

    This is frustrating me so much!!!

    Elenwyn it sounds like your in the Mechanical Age, right? Sort of round structure surrounded with water, with a track surrounding the structure? At the beginning of the walkway, did you notice a control panel with symbols on it? Perhaps you have to find something on the surrounding structures that match those symbols? And the rotator, perhaps it gives off tones to indicate directions--which you might want to remember, and rotate the central structure? Your goal, reach the linking book hidden below the control panel at the beginning of the walkway.

    Note that all the ages except Selenetic have bedrooms for the brothers, so "World of Two Brothers' Bedrooms" doesn't describe it that well!

    However, you should go into the bedrooms and look around until you see a device which is a model of how the central rotating island works. You will see two levers. Experiment with the levers and find out what they do.

    Once you have been downstairs and switched power on, look around for a lift to take you to an upper level, where you will find two levers that look surprisingly like the levers on the model...

    Over to you.

    Not everything in Myst "does" something other than add atmosphere. I didn't find a purpose for the "glowy" things you described. There were other such objects in the rooms that were there, I think, to give some idea of what kind of people the two brothers are, but did not relate directly to the clues that you need to figure out the island.

    Spoiler follows:

    The room at the bottom of the stairs has a lever that rotates the elevator above it so you can get in it. There's a diagram right beside the lever that will tell you when things are in the right place. Go back up the steps. Close the steps. Get on the elevator. There's an up button and a down button...and one in between. Write back and ask for another spoiler if you need it.

    Thank you all so much for your help! I'm sorry about any confusion, I didn't know that every world had bedrooms. This is the first age, other than the beginning age, that I've ever been to. *blushes*

    Unfortunately, ritafair, you guessed right. I *sigh* do need another spoiler. I'm in the elevator, and I can get it to go up and down and in the middle. But there is nothing to do either up or down! *groans* What obvious thing am I missing?

    Also, I can't find the symbols that correspond to the little button pad where you "land" in the beginning. I guess I'm just blind fool, but I need help in that area as well. *cries*

    Well, the up button makes it go up, and the down button makes it go down, and the middle button makes it go in the middle, but not right away. There's a delay. You are inside an elevator and there's a delay before the door closes. When there's a delay in the action, there's time built into the game for you to do something. What can you do? What are your options (luckily, they're limited )? Get to know this concept well -- it serves you well in the Adventure game genre

    Oh, and about those symbols, don't worry -- you'll come across them in time.

    But most importantly -- are you enjoying the game?

    Spoilers: I'll try and give you a few more spoilers but I'll break them down so if you want to read one and then go back to the game and see where it takes you before reading the next. The next paragraph discusses a bit of what the general goal is for the major part of the game. If you'd rather figure this out for yourself or if you already know it, skip it.

    First of all, there are two brothers (you visited their bedrooms on this world). Their message (somewhat garbled) was heard when you activated the blue book and the red book back in the Library on Myst Island. The message is not very clear but something was mentioned about bringing back the "blue pages" or "red pages". You must retrieve some "pages" from each world that you visit--the color depends on which brother you will eventually free.

    GEAR WORLD (MECHANICAL WORLD)

    1. The pad with the 4 changing symbols will be important later but there are other things you must do first.

    2. You already said you had visited the two bedrooms on . Some gadgets are important to the story. Some are there to entertain you or to give some insight into each brother's personality. You need to look more closely in each room because....spoiler follows.....

    .......

    .......

    There is a secret door in each room.


    3. Aussie Mystic gave you some important clues. Sounds are quite important to solving puzzles in this world.

    4. You said you managed to get on the elevator and that one button went up, one went down, and one stopped midway between but the door didn't open. Here's what you need to think of. Why would the elevator stop half-way down? The door doesn't open. You can't go anywhere. ....Spoiler follows..........


    .......................

    The controls you need are on top of the elevator. If you press the middle button, there is a delay before the elevator shoots down. This is to give you enough time to get out of the elevator before it goes down.

    I pressed the send button before I was quite finished with the last message but I think I had said most of what I planned to say before letting you explore some more on your own.

    I just meant to add that there are a couple of smaller islands that you need to visit in order to gather the information you need but you must figure something out about the area you're in right now before you can get to those places.
