    Ink is one of the basic materials required to Write an Age. It is made from a special formula passed down from generation to generation by the D'ni Guild of Inkmakers. Gehn's journals seem to indicate that written formulas for Ink are scarce or even non-existent, the D'ni preferring to hand the formula down orally to the next group of Guildsmen.


    Ink was made from a special kind of scarab beetle, which Gehn seems to have Written into Riven. A D'ni Proverb speaks of the use of these beetles in Ink:


    A Tree falls; a page arises.

    A scarab is captured; ink is released.

    Life is taken; an Age is given.


    This proverb was posted at the now-defunct DniGuild.com the day before it opened in June of 2001.


    According to what we see in Riven, a special compound is required to activate the ink, not that it works by itself. Players see it in a small vial on Gehn's desk as a blood-red colored substance, dispersed by a tube.
