Considering that Cyan (and by the way, is Cyan pronounced "Sie-an" or "Kie-an"?) has done the work on EoA, does this mean that we'll get a glimpse at Releeshan? Maybe? Please? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

your phonetic spellings seem to be different. surely sie-an is pronounced differently to kie-an. it's pronounced how it looks: sigh-anne to be honest your spellings just create more ambiguity (sie could be pronounced "sea" or "sigh")

but i digress. i'm not sure why you think cyan working on it would mean we're more likely to see releeshan. but in any case i don't think anyone knows if we will see it. i sure don't.

I'm banking on no, personally...

And incidentally, it's pronounced "sigh-ANNE" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

"Cyan" is also a real word. It the name of a color. Looking in dictionary.com, the definition is "A greenish blue, one of the subtractive primary colors."

When I get ink cartridges for my printer - one of the color cartridges is "cyan".

Indeed, though for the color, the emphasis is (at least in the midwest US) on the first syllable, not the second... just to be difficult http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

To the question of why Cyan would be more likely to reveal Releeshahn than someone else, they did bar third-party developers from depicting it in any non-Cyan games, which some have interpreted as a desire to show it off themselves. While I agree that Releeshahn will likely be revealed at some point in the future, I'm willing to bet pretty heavily that there are plans to discuss it in the fourth Myst novel (at one point called The Book of Marrim... dunno if that name's still on the table though) if it ever comes out, not End of Ages.

The thing about my horrendous phonics . . .

I was in a hurry and didn't have time to come up with the proper letters.

So it's "Sigh-anne?" that's what I figured. Plus, no one ever gave me a funny look (that I can recall) when I said cyan.
