When I discovered the E3 trailer, I went berserk, and (holy Atrus!!!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif) I was totally immersed. Then I saw the trailer about fifty times, and I made some conclusions of that:

1. In the start you see the picture of Atrus and Co. in Myst. Apparently, they sit around the fountain of the Stoneship ship. No button-pillars around them. Who painted?

2. 19 seconds inside, you see this yeesha cut, where she drops the past-amulet. The screen has a blue/green touch. Then at 23 seconds, the color is there again with Yeesha running away, and looking back. Obviously, someone (Achenar?) is running after her. These blue-shots must be some of the visions of the amulet. Notice, Yeesha runs towards that fireplace. Above the fireplace is the Myst Painting I mentioned in 1. Also notice, that fireplace and painting, is inside the bedroom from the Revelation screensaver.

3.Between the two Yeesha cuts, whe see a (bridge?) fall down and chrash, with the player looking around. This could be the explosion that makes Atrus dissapear.

4. Then we see Achenars Journal. Wow, hes angry.

5. We see that "brother-orb" (as i call it) where the red and blue book are hidden. Then we see that woman/girl (Anya, Anza?). Atrus Drawings in the Exile-Journal showed flying Islands. The age that (anya, anza?) is standing in, is the age from the end of the trailer, and there is som flying Islands above that temple-thingy. Assume that this is Releeshahn, a civilized age. We were told the game contains a civilized age. "Im (anya, anza?), one of 6000 to die" Bingo. That concludes that she belongs to some sort of civilization. Therefore the age must be Releeshahn. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif (YES, I LOVE YOU CYAN/UBI )Left to die.... Maybe Sirrus and Achenar, are bussing and messing this world (Releeshahn) to the chaotic, killing and slaving people.

6. We see the brothers fight. Obviously there is some conflict between those, but is that a surprise? they hate each other. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/icon_twisted.gif

7. Then we see the "evil" Animal going through the grass. The "monkey-cutie" looks into your eyes, and reach out to touch you. It suddenly looks up when the (evil-animal?) roars, and flee. Achenar hits with a axe, to kill the "petreodactyl-animal", but it flees. The "evil" animal reach the "good-phoenix-horse" animal and (kill it?). http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif So saddy.

8. The "evil"-animal jumps into you (die, dum Myst-fan http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif).

9. We see the beatiful and stunning (Releeshahn?) http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif (Love you, Myst Creators)

It seems likely. But, the articles we've seen so far say that it's a "lab explosion", while the stuff we see collapsing is outside the bedroom. So the explosion must have been very destructive!

However, we really can't be sure ATRUS disappears. Yes, the IGN article says so, but the IGN article also says Yeesha is Atrus's neice. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Pat told us on the UO board that it's Anya. He got tired of us calling her Anna, Ayma, Anzu and all kinds of other guesses. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I followed the same chain of logic, so I think Releeshahn is a possibility. Another piece of evidence is that Anya is wearing a necklace that may be related to Yeesha's necklace. But I don't think we have nearly enough proof to claim that it IS Releeshahn for certain.

Many of us don't hear "6000 left to die". Anya has a bit of an accent, but I, personally, am almost certain she's saying "I'm Anya, one of the Sisters of this temple." Listen to it again, with your eyes closed, and see what you think.

Yeah, right. But first i thought she said, Im with anga, .... left to Dni. Dni and Die can sound the same way. Nevertheless, im 100 percent it is Releeshahn. Time will tell.

I was thinking while watching it...what if, for some unknown reason, one of the brothers encounters you in the jungle area (spied on by the other brother), and tries to help you in your journey. The other brother is furious as the brother tried to kill you when he last saw you, so he emerges and tries to get rid of the defecting brother. Since Achenar (I think) was shown with the log in the same area as the fight scene, I think that Achenar knocked Sirrus down and killed him by swinging the log into him, and when he turned back to look for you, you were already gone, using the fight as a diversion to escape (but being chased by one of the animals)...it sounds like an amazing scene to me.

That's a pretty big leap there. There are a lot more civilizations than the D'ni. And neither she nor the architecture look particularly D'ni.

And besides, Cyan has a full creative lock on Releeshahn (thus it not appearing in Exile). So I doubt that any company but them is going to get to present Releeshahn first.

Perhaps to the detriment of the series as a whole....

Anyway, as far as I'm concerned THIS (http://www.battle.net/diablo2exp/npcs/act5.shtml) is Anya. (Scroll down to Anya).

There are 10 kinds of people in the world: People who know binary and people who don't.

Second Report.

Now I found out something more, when I saw the trailer my 67th time. When I saw the books I was like: "Oh cool, we're gonna see Sirrus and Ahchenar again" But what I really wondered, was how that fit into the storyline. Now I realized: We arrive, Atrus dissapears with no trace, and we find two books. Blue, and Red. Sirrus, and Achenar. Age, and Age. We are of course going to visit each of their trap ages, and then meeting them. Im sure that maybe Achenar is in the Jungle age, and Sirrus in that stoneship-thingy age. Whadda you think?

littlebobbie2
05-19-2004, 07:59 AM
I like that idea, although both brothers encounter each other in the jungle. (Unless one of the brothers fights Atrus, which I doubt)

Exziler
05-19-2004, 08:33 AM
littlebobbie2, are you sure its the jungle age? Its a place with some rocks, we dont see any jungles. The age we see in which Achenar stands, i doubt is the jungle age. its just loads of grass, rocks and a chaotic sky. No jungle. Nevertheless, the animals from the jungle age is here, so well never know.

I also doubt that it's Releeshahn, though there does seem to be some circumstantial evidence in favor of the idea.

But, I am not so sure that Cyan's creative lock still applies. According to an old interview with Mary DeMarle while she was working on Exile, Cyan at that time also had a creative lock on the full story of the brothers, so she had to do an end-run around the restriction by focusing on one of their victims, rather than giving the backstory that many fans wanted. (Sorry, I can't give you a link, because I can't FIND the blasted thing again. I'm still looking, though.) Obviously, that restriction no longer applies, since Revelation is doing the story of the brothers. So, maybe the Releeshahn restriction has been lifted as well.

Are you listening, Mary? Can you comment at least on whether I'm right about that old interview? (I'm sure you won't say anything about whether Ubi is or isn't allowed to do anything with Releeshahn, because that WOULD be a spoiler. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif)

I think I heard somewhere that Catherine wanted Atrus to free their sons. Atrus surely wouldn't free his sons outright so perhaps he wrote two new ages for his sons (The red and blue books in the trailer) as prisons, which Yeesha has stumbled upon and been trapped in, or worse yet has unwittingly left a linking book for one of the brothers to escape?

Tisk, tisk, tisk... these D'ni women are too emotional. It must run in the D'ni blood. Ti'ana also didn't want Gehn to join the guilds. And when those explosions started in the city she left home late at night just to pick up Ghen from school to bring him back home.

D'ni mothers... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/52.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/52.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/52.gif

And Ti'ana was human, as was Atrus's mother. Yeesha and the boys don't really have all that much D'ni blood in them... they're only 1/8 D'ni.

Good point Sri.

With so much dilution from I guess this puts us a bit closer Atrus's family.

So is Aitrus's the earliest pure D'ni in the family we know of?

I hope this what that stone carving in Revelation is all about. Maybe they'll give us a little more background as well? (Surely they can expect us to remember all this?)

Here's what I've got, after looking at the bigger newer version of the E3 trailer:

I've transcribed the following from a journal written by Achenar once he linked to his maddening prison:

"Man is it hot! Actually starting to like these infernal thunderstorms. They ruin a good day of lurking but at least they cool things down for a while.

Suprised my greedy brother hasn't shown up yet He's got to know I skipped out on him in Saronia ](the name of some Age), after we called that little truce. He's insane if he thinks his plan there will work. We should just kill father and be done with it.

Then again, maybe I should link back to Myst and convince Sirrus to let the old man free here in Haven. After all these weeks of practice, my hunting and tracking skills have really improved. (That's sick. Hunt down and kill his own father?)

Notice that the trailer shows an explosion happening in the boat in Achenar's Age, which I'm sure begins with an H- he mentioned it himself (see above). Come September 9, remember to watch your footing in the boat. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Now, as for "Ayna", notice her jewelry. It's a pendant! The pendants' properties are mentioned in that slightly inaccurate IGN article- they let the holder experience past events in the vicinity of the pendant. It must be either (1) the civilization we're anticipating in Myst, or (2) a member of the new D'ni people.

I have a hypothesis about the symbols found on the trap books. Would the Guild of Maintainers stamp dangerous Ages with a "Do Not Enter" sign? That might be something similar.

Then there's the scene of Yeesha running into a chamber and closing the door. I'm certain that it takes place in Atrus and Catherine's bedroom- the furniture and painting in the trailer are also in a screenshot posted elsewhere.

A couple more things- the shot of Atrus writing includes the astrolabe-looking thing from the Exile prologue and epilogue, with a rock stuck in it. Plus, the two trap books are there on his desk. And finally, the shaky scene with that bridge and tumbling metal shaft is their home Age. I hope nothing too devastating happens- it'd be Atrus' fourth move resulting from crazy family members.

That's what I got. Did I miss anything?

"Wow, that was a dumb signature."

If i may correct you, its not the same astrolabe thingy, as the one in Exile beared a red jewel, while this bears a green.

Regarding the 'Do Not Enter' symbol on a book, don't the Maintainers just skip stamping the book? Any book without a Maintainer stamp is considered unsafe to enter. Although to be fair, this would be more of a "Under NO circumstances should you use this book" as opposed to "Use this book at your own risk".

Something no one seems to mention as far as the 'Skylands' being Releeshan is that it's very pretty and very out-in-the-open. The complete opposite of D'ni. I realise that yet another cavern might disappoint the remaining D'ni, but with Atrus having just visited Terahnee, seen the type of people who inhabited the age, I'd have thought it would make him wary of creating a similar world for the D'ni to live in.

Maybe I'm talking rubbish!

Oops, I forgot to mention that. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/1072.gif Apart from that, though, I'm betting it's the same prop.

hey add this to our list of journal entries we have seen so far... look at mystworlds.ubi.com and at the very top you see a pic of the journal.. i think its either sirrus' or achenar's journal.. it leads me to believe that one or the other was trying to bring back the other from the trap age but whats weird is that one of them would have to be released to do that right?

Not if Yeesha accidentally entered one of brother's books freed that brother, that's where she's lost and the brother wants to take revenge on Atrus so get's his other brother out to help (?). But then we wouldn't get to explore their worlds would we? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Hey where's this image you're talking about? Oh, random each time... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/53.gif I've gone through over twenty pics of Myst worlds, I only found one pic of a journal... and it's not one of the brother's, it's Atrus' from riven, here's is the image (http://mystworlds.ubi.com/NR/rdonlyres/efts6jctdm5rtxyuoatrkrh6xmvhrfr2nvb35mux4wcicqlv4j d5ycukjvj47htb2bbswbmvgy3bat7yaqed47234sb/headermystworlds04.jpg) anyway.
(I had orginaly displayed the image here but it's so big it messed everthing up)

Is this the image you're refering to jetuserX?

You haven't played Riven, have you?
Sorry to disappoint you Matt, but that's Gehn's journal from Riven.
EDIT: Oh sorry, you did know that. (Although its Gehn's not Atrus). But whoever posted that in the first place, no its not the journal from Revelation.
However, the one in the Revelation trailer IS in Revelation, and thats definitely Achenar's journal.

Is Mary_94 really Mary DeMarle? How come she doesn't have one of those Myst IV beige logos that the others have?

EMS, once I'd posted that, I realised that the symbol on the left book is Gehn's, but I think the book on the right is Atrus' because if you look close it mentions "the Gateway Image has become noticeably clearer", "efforts to bring her back" (Catherine) and "...of Riven unlike my father".

I'm sure the books are in different locations as well, as the backgrounds are different and they were probably composited together.

Oh yeah... Ooops I think I saw the table and assumed it was Gehn's book open.
Yes, it definitely is Atrus' Riven book open, composited next to Gehns book closed on the table as it is in the game.

Yep. That's me... Mary_94 = Mary DeMarle. And the reason I don't have one of those Myst IV logos http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif is 'cause I'm not working on site in Montreal anymore... so I don't have access to the assets Pat_09 and everyone else on the team have. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Unless Pat can perhaps send me them? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Hi Mary!
Nice to meet you. *jumping for joy*
If you want to parade around with the nifty little Myst IV logo use the following url for your avatar: "http://mystobsession.com/data/images/avatars/MRTeam.jpg" , (hopefully you didn't know this, and it's not obvious and i didn't just make a fool of myself http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif) There's not a rule that you can't use it if you're not in Montreal is there? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

But anyway I think you've done a really great job, the Revelation plot looks set to kill!

I just noticed something in the trailer (not the teaser).

Does that animal really jump at like head on like it did at the end of the trailer?

I seriously doubt it ... more likely it was set specifically for the Trailer to make it more "catching" http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Perhaps the ending has not yet been written!

The jumping creature may have been created for the trailer but somehow I actually think it's part of the game, though I'm not sure whether it's attacking you or someone else. Same problem with the scene in the trailer where someone's chasing Yeesha, or was that a memory? But if it's Yeesha's memory it's looking through someone elses eyes, a brother? Ah... then what if the creature shot is actually... Nah couldn't be http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Actually, those just popped up one day. I think they were a generous gift from our kind benefactors here on the Ubi forums. Maybe if you're nice with them, they'll give you one too! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif

Hi Mary!!!
Sorry to doubt you.
Hey, I really loved your work on Exile - that was brilliant, and I'm looking forward to your... well, everyone's work on Revelation!

Well, about your icon, aren't they just links?
Can't you just set your avatar to:
http://mystobsession.com/data/images/avatars/MRTeam.jpg

Which I got by right-clicking on Pat's icon and clicking properties.
I suppose anyone can do it
(but I guess its an honour system that we don't try to pass ourselves off as team members!)

EDIT: Arrgh this'll teach me to read other posts carefully! Thats the second time in this thread that I've posted something, then realised Matt Myat already said that.
As always, I guess I just like to have my 2 cents http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
