I'm almost sure the little girl is Yeesha - kidnapped by her own brothers. They must have done terrible things to her. Why else would she want to tatoo her face? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I'm definitely of the idea that the little girl is Yeesha. What her brothers are up to is anyone's guess. Kidnapping? Using her to lure Atrus into releasing them? Or are they already free of the Prison Books, plotting and scheming revenge on Atrus? To many questions after watching that trailer.

I'm thinking that Yeesha wasn't told about her brothers when she was little. Somehow she discovers them, they kidnap her, and the rest is from there.

Yes, and Atrus being the old fuddy duddy he is. He has access to thier prison books, in fact he feels sorry for them and decides to create a better world for them. Yes, I agree that Yeesha will become a pawn in the game. And perhaps a way out for the brothers grimm.

Its definitely going to be about Sirus and Achenar there is no doubt about it. and dont blame Atrus for what happened in EXILE because it wasnt like he knew that Saavadro was going to barg in and hold Releeshean hostage and destroy his study.

Well, no, he didn't know that was going to happen, but it's not an unreasonable thing to consider. First of all, the book isn't in a fireproofed location, which would be bad whether someone breaks in or the baby just knocks a candle over. Secondly, there's no kind of theft protection. The D'ni chained their Books to their pedestals, yet Atrus doesn't. For some reason. He's very concerned about padlocking things, but he keeps Releeshahn under a dinky piece of glass.

Yes, it has to be that way for plot and game mechanics, because Saavedro has to steal the Book. But from an "in character" perspective, Atrus isn't using the best judgment (go figure, he's usually such a good judge of character and such http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif)

I do think that we'll see the explanation for Yeesha's tatoo/scar in this addition to the Myst series. Maybe it's something they did to Yeesha to make Atrus tell them something, like on those spy movies, where the villians inflict pain on the loved one to make the hero admit something.

If that really is Yeesha, there's something odd about Cyan's decision to allow Ubi to include her in this title. I've assumed that Yeesha would play a role in Uru, although she didn't make an appearance in XP1. To give up creative control over a character like Yeesha makes me now think she won't play a role in Uru. Which means we'll get more of Douglas Sharper. Blech.

I'll admit, I too thought the books had been destroyed, after seeing the "blast" marks left on the pedistals, but it is possible that they were merely transported to another place in a way that left those scorched marks.

[EDIT]I must apologise for that which I typed above, I really was not thinking at all. Looking at it now, I see how moronic that sounds. Again, sorry.[END EDIT]

As fot the little girl in the trailer, it may just be a pertinent in-game flashback to a time when Yeesha was younger. She may not be a big part of Revelations at all. :Biting my tongue:

The Gamespot article talks about a "mysterious disappearance of a young girl" which I assume is Yeesha, and if true, she will probably play a large part in the story, seeing as you will probably have to rescue her.

maztec

Zardoz, my understanding is that Cyan played a fairly strong part in the story creation for this. So I believe it's entirely possible that they might let them use her within their limits.

I think the books were destroyed too. Yeesha has a gift for writing links...even kinds that Atrus cannot create. Perhaps she discovers her brothers' existence and decides to reunite with them. So she has the ability to recreate the prison books and, innocently(?) releases them? She finds out too late they are not the most family-oriented of kin.

Also...I saw a post earlier that Sirrus is not played by Robyn this time? Sure looked like him in the photo in the trailer.

Thoughts? Inside info?

Don't forget, all the Myst games (not uru) were made by Cyan based on journals they found and that there were liberties taken to make the games more player friendly. ie: scorchmarks where the red/blue books were in myst.

But then again, I don't remember the books in myst having anything on the covers similar to the ones in the trailer.

According to RAWA, Cyan had as much to do with Revelation as they had to do with Exile. That is to say, not much at all.

That said, I would venture to guess that Ubi can get away with having Yeesha in this game because, like in Exile, she is young enough that it does not affect Uru's gameplay. From the look of the girl in the trailer, Yeesha can't be more than 12 at the time of this telling, and remember also that the Myst series is set about 200 years prior to Uru. Given that, it's possible that she has some part in the story of Revelation, but at the same time isn't the main driving force behind the tale beyond being the kidnapee http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

That was also definitely not Robyn Miller in the picture of Sirrus http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

I am not sure we should assume the red and blue books we see in the trailer are left over from Myst. These could also possibly be the books that Atrus developed being shown prior to his trapping his sons in them. Perhaps the events surrounding the kidnapping of this young woman were what precipitated Atrus' actions against Sirius and Achenar?

I think we are all overlooking one very dangerous element. Gehn. He, too, may figure in here. He is Yeesha's grandfather and still in the wings somewhere, and insane. Could Yeesha have accidentally written into Age 5? Or perhaps stumbled accros a secret link to her brothers? Knowing Atrus, he would not have left his sons, as disturbed as they were, completely out of reach. I don't think Catherine would have allowed that.

I just thought I'd toss this out there, it's a quote by RAWA about the fates of the Red and Blue books posted to the Riven Lyst back in 2000.<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Q. What happened to the red and blue books at the end of Myst?


A. Atrus tried to ensure that the boys would not be able to escape the Ages they were in. In Myst this is shown by the scorch marks where the Books used to be. The historical accounts are not specific as to how he ensured their captivity. Very little artistic license taken here - burning the Books seems a very reasonable, logical way of showing this. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

I'm going to throw my hat in with the "Atrus didn't actually destroy the books" theory, although the "only destroyed linking books, not the descriptive books" seems just as plausible to me. I don't think he would want to be totally cut off from his sons.

I had always assumed that the prison books worked on a slightly different principle than a standard linking book. It almost seems as if the prisoner is somehow trapped in the fabric of the book itself, otherwise how are they able to see you looking at them through the link? In Riven the prison book led to a simple blackness and when Gehn opened the book I could see him from within the confines of the book. What is known for sure about these prison books?

If I recall correctly the D'ni had prison ages, but not prison books. Was not Atrus the creator of these prison books?

I agree with Al. I always thought that in Myst the books that were destroyed were only linking books and not the desvriptive book. My guess is that there are either another pair of books lying around somewhere, or perhaps Yeesha finds the descriptive books and unknowing writes new linking books to the ages, thus releasing the boys and facilitating her kidnap.

Either way, we can be sure Sirrus and Achenar are out for revenge http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/icon_twisted.gif

Did the brother ever had the talent to write linking books? Maybe that's why they kidnapped her, to write ages for them. Or links to other ages, protected by Atrus.

And is that place we see Releeshan? I've always been curious about that age.

Prison books can't really be normal ages because only one person seems to be able to occupy one at a time. In both Myst and Riven when someone goes into an inhabitted prison book, the person inside pops out and is free while the person who linked in becomes trapped. This leads me to think that there aren't other linking books to the place because it's not really a place at all, but a one man trap.

Just my two cents:

Consider the prison book written for Gehn, in Myst III: Exile. Once inside, we appear to be experiencing the same thing as Sirrus and Achenar; that is, looking out from inside a book. A "normal" linking book places one inside the Age to which it linked, know what I mean?

So... perhaps the red and blue books were, for all intents and purposes, "normal" linking books that had been altered in some fashion so as to become prisons themselves. Now, just returning torn-out pages would only alter the "prison" aspects of the book (seeing in and out), but the book's creator could conceivably "finish" the book, making it a true Age but still a prison, similar to Riven, with no links in or out. In that case, the books could then be destroyed without harming the Age's occupants.

Make sense? I often don't, so I like to ask.

From Atrus's Riven Journal:

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>A Prison Book

Many years ago, during a hunting expedition through the ruins of D'ni, I chanced upon a formula for a most unusual type of Book.

Unfortunately, due to the fact that my father was then in the habit of confiscating my discoveries, I was forced to leave it behind. Years later, however, as part of my efforts to protect the vulnerable worlds linked to the Books in my library, I was pleased to find that I could still recall most of the formula, and with little experimentation quickly succeeded in creation one of these devices myself.

The procedure is actually quite simple: by altering key lines of text but slightly, a normal Linking Book's connection can be partially severed, such that anyone who attempts to use the Book will be permanently trapped in the dark void of the Link that is, unless someone else then uses the Book, at which point the person would become trapped, and the first person displaced back into the world.

The technique can be applied to Books that have already been written, changes to the original text being so slight that anyone who is unfamiliar with the code will be unable to detect them.

If indeed my father has not changed, what better bait could there be, then a Book that appeared to be a Link back here to D'ni?<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

And yes destroying the book only destroys the link to the Age, it's occupants and the Age remain unharmed.

I think that this game will explain why Yeesha is so ... eccentric, if that indeed is Yeesha. Maybe the brothers brainwashed her into becoming like they were in Myst. Something did say that Yeesha had been like them but then came back to the "right" side and saw her error. Could the brothers have had anything to do with that?

I don't know. My impression of the Red and Blue books in the trailer was that they were part of Sirius and Achenar's worlds. (Did they ever learn how to write?) Either we enter ages that they created prior to the prison books, or The Girl (who ever she may be) is taken into ages written by the brothers during or "after" their entrapment in the books. In the trailor, we never actually see Sirius and/or Achenar, so that they are even still around is mearly speculation. The Girl could have stumbled into some old ages of the bros. (possibly written without Atrus's knowledge, which is why it is so dangerous for The Girl)

That's a good point Scytheph-whatsit. Actually, the linking books are supposed to be real-time, so we would see him. (Not sure where I read that, but I'm sure that I read it.)

The monologue is not a real version of Atrus. It's simply the letter that you find in the Cleft being read. It makes a good opening to the game.

Even so,
Yeesha has to have gone out on here own for Atrus to write the letter mentioning how she has gone off. Assuming that the girl in the Revelation trailor is Yeesha (just speculation http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif), she wouldn't be old enough to have gone off. And even if it's not Yeesha, I remember reading somewhere that Ubi soft had licenced two more myst games after Exile. And it wouldn't be the same without Atrus.

And as to whether the hand that grabs for Yeesha is trying to pull her, push her, or grab the pendant, it appears to me that the hand is grabbing for the pendant, breaks the chain, and then it falls to the floor.

Also, it appears that Yeesha is reaching out to operate the door she has just come through (you can see it just begin to come down in a couple frames of the video), and that it falls on the arm of her pursuer, causing him/her to drop the pendant.

Just to speculate a bit further, in the shot directly after the dropping of the pendant, we see Yeesha react with what looks like horror. Has she just caused the door to cut off the hand of her attacker?

Would that explain some sort of connection to the device I showed earlier having what looks like a severed hand attached to it?

We've never seen Sirrus or Achenar's hands...is one of them missing something? (Or is that just too creepy?)

You know, if I'd read some of the other threads before I posted, I could have saved myself some time and not wound up looking stupid. (Makes note to self to avoid looking stupid in the future...)

So it seems the hand in question is not a plot device, but the cursor.

Well.

Say . . . is that pendant a shell? Perhaps a tie in with the Uru expansion pack 2? Hmmmmmmmmm . . .

Here's another possibility. Yeesha accidentally frees the brothers, they are chasing her and she runs to Myst and hids in the fire place (she pushed the button just like we had to). She's a smart girl and either has the combo memorized or written somewhere, so she has access to the D'ni linking book, and is able to escape. Atrus and Cathrine on the other hand, get "kidnapped" by the brothers. Yeesha knows that you (the stranger) have helped out her father in the past so comes to you. You, being the amazing super hero that you are (you stud http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif ) rush back to rescue your friend and his wife. cue intro music to Myst 4.

The most plausable storyline brought forth yet, Devokan. I always thought it looked like Yeesha ran into the fireplace. Good call.

I can't take the credit for the fireplace. I heard that somewhere else and thought it was a good guess...the other idea is really good too, that Yeesha gets kidnapped. I just thought Atrus getting kidnapped would save them from figuring out why the heck Atrus can't get his own daughter back.
