I may have missed something, but I have yet to come across any mention of Catherine in Myst 4. Did she finally die of old age or did I really miss a memo?

One of the press reports after E3 mentioned that Catherine tries to persuade Atrus that their sons have served their time and deserve mercy. She may be responsible for releasing one or both of them. I think it would be hard for Team Rev to handle this plot point (if the reporter is correct) without showing Catherine, at least in a flashback scene. But, who knows, maybe they found a way to pull it off. It does seem strange that we haven't seen a pic yet.

She can't be dead, even if she doesn't appear in Revelation for some reason. If you've played Uru, you've seen the letter that Atrus wrote to Yeesha -- years after Revelation -- in which he mentions the dream that Catherine had the night before. Ergo, Catherine is still alive when Yeesha is much older. So set your mind at rest. Team Rev can't kill off Catherine unless they SERIOUSLY fouled up. (Which I highly doubt!!)

True, Catherine wasn't mentioned in the press release about the casting, but a certain other individual in the trailer http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif wasn't mentioned either, so unless they've completely excised that part from the game (whatever it...um...was exactly...http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif), what we got in the press release was not a full cast list, so the fact Catherine wasn't mentioned doesn't necessarily mean she's out.

Thanks everybody. (yummy bb tarts earthangel http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif )

No I haven't played Uru yet because of my stupid video card (thank for the spoilers J.B. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif) but I had a hunch she wasn't dead but I thought it was odd that she be ommitted from publicity and marketing.

good point Cali, it's easy to assume she'll be there, but looking at all publicity shots and stuff with rand as Atrus and even the ones with him and Yeesha - it just looks like them and Atrus looks quiet alone and brooding and we haven't seen a single pic of Catherine anywhere!

i suspect the team might have thought they could get away without complicating things with another character not directly in the gameplay, or perhaps she's gone somewhere else so Atrus needs your help, or she's looking for Yeesha, or she's sick, or...

... the family are on their own because she spent the day at the spa! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

My suspicion though is that she's somewhere else (in another Age, up to something relevant) and will be either discussed or shown... she and Atrus seem to be separated during a lot of crucial episodes in the Myst canon. Not one of those couples that go everywhere together.

You're right. Maybe they'll hide her for M5 (something else?), because shes in Releeshahn doing something?

(thinks of Marie from Everybody Loves Raymond) "Awwww, my poor boys! Atrus, bring them back home. I made some canoles for them."

Or she could just be a minor role - it seems she has to have something to do with it.
Although in Exile Catherine and Yeesha had extremely minor roles (particularly Yeesh who was in 3 shots, and was a baby) yet they were still credited everywhere Brad and Rand were.

(Hey! Brad and Rand - sounds like Home Improvement)

Ya'll didn't hear the news? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif She got tired of listening to Atrus go on and on and on and on and on about the Ages and the Writing of Ages and the exploration of Ages...until finally she just threw her hands in the air and went to the I Can't Take It Anymore Age...otherwise known as the...D'ivorce Age. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif

JadesDream, that is so, so funny!

You know, I like Atrus as a friend, and in-game, we've been friends for many years. I brought a baby gift when I visited the family (in Myst Exile), didn't all of you? But you know, I could never be married to him. He sure does pontificate! If I was married to him, I'd be telling him, "enough already about the Ages and the Writing. We are going on vacation and you are not going to bring your writing implements or even one darn book!"

"Aww not even a journal?"

"Fine honey you can bring a journal."

<Atrus begins writing in his holiday journal, in D'ni. An image appears on the first page.>
"HONEY! You promised!"

Catherine sits to write her own linking book. After many days she calls to Atrus, "Oh honey...I have a surprise for you!" He trustingly walks over and looks at her book and places is hand on the page. When he reappears, he is surrounded by a large group of men, sitting in an auditorium. On the stage, lit in big letters is this announcement:
How to Keep Your Marriage Healthy, A 5 Day Seminar Presented by Dr. James Dobson

"Ye gads."

A gentleman with a harrangued look on his face turns around and says drily, "You aren't kidding. Not only that, if you don't pass the test at the end of the 5 days, you don't link out of here. Then you have to go to Seminar #2."

"Which is?"

"Know When to Just Nod Your Head and Say Yes Dear."

"Ye gads!!"

"Exactly."

Atrus quickly checks his supplies and sees he has NO linking books whatsoever to leave this place, so he sits next to the man and picks up the notebook and pen that is on his chair. He opens the notebook and carefully begins taking notes as the seminar begins. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/mockface.gif

We do hear Catherine talking with Atrus in the demo.

Tony_B, I guess he paid attention in the seminar!

JadesDream, part 2 was (again) so funny! How does it continue?

I also think that it might be a good idea for Atrus and Catherine to go on a real vacation, a vacation that had nothing to do with the art or the linking books, except perhaps one to the beach age - now what was the name of it?

Noloben, which reminds me of this webcomic:
