    "Tomahna"

    As sung by The Stranger To the tune of "The Model" by Kraftwerk I'm on Tomahna; Atrus wants to see If either of his sons should be set free. He blows out the power and he links to Rime I get the generator back up just in time. A bomb goes off beneath me and I hit the ground I wake come night and Yeesha's nowhere to be found Atrus is stuck so I must find a way To save Yeesha and make her abductor pay *musical interlude* I search prison Ages for some clues and then I go to find the grandkids of Gehn On Serenia where I find her possessed By her evil brother (Sirrus, just like I guessed).

  4. To the tune of "Master of the House" from Les Miserables ESHER: !Šora b'šem Esher's my name Ruling the Bahro Should be my game And it will be If I insist That the tablet Be taken to Myst And you will see Soon I will be A Duck-nee lord of power Because I will be Master of the Art Greater than all who Ever came before me (That is very true) But if I should fail Duck-nee it will die For only pure Roné Can make it thrive That is why I need the Tablet Keep it far from Yeesha, please Please do not let her destroy us I am begging on my knees Master of the Art And the Grower too Planning to relieve them Of a soul or two When the pow'r is mine And I rule it all For I'll have the Bahro At my beck and call What a most exciting prospect Everyone will obey me I will turn it, Turn it into a giant Teraní. CHORUS OF BAHRO: Master of the Art? Yavo please forbid! We would have to work for That pow'r maniac's id We can't give him sense He's a broken hnau Thirst for power's all that Is left of him now Everybody's cruel slave master That is what he would become ESHER: 'Twould be a horror if Explorer's not sufficiently dumb. [To explorer] !Šora b'šem Take up the load If you are smart You will end your road Over at Myst Tablet in hand Put in the Korhern That would be grand Our geese are cooked If you choose else Yeesha destroys us Doubt the lies she tells. [Aside] Precious DRC Nothing without me People of Relíšan Also they will see I will be their king To me all their pleas I will rule the Tree of Possibility. [To explorer] Surely its pow'r starts to grip you Surely you begin to see Yeesha if she gains the tablet Then it will all over be [Aside] Trap him there on Myst Never to return Until he should die Or Myst should freeze or burn If he brings a Book Snatch it from his hands He must not be able To warn any man For there are found in Relíšan Sentimental empty-heads Who would turn against me On Tagira fence me Then, see, Duck-nee would be dead CHORUS OF BAHRO: Master of the Art? Yavo please forbid! We would have to work for That pow'r maniac's id We can't give him sense He's a broken hnau Thirst for power's all that Is left of him now Everybody's cruel slave master That is what he would become ESHER: Yeesha has to bite it. Might it be restored had Sirrus won? YEESHA: I used to dream That D'ní I would save But, oh, forgive me I wasted the chance Yavo gave Master of the Art Not for him or me When the Tablet's loose Do not give it to me I could yet go mad Esher is a crook Let the D'ní be content With writing Books Make the Least into the Greatest As it was so long ago When the Keep is open Go then, give the Tablet to Bahro ESHER: Master of the Art YEESHA: When a zeftyr flies! ESHER: I'm the Grower; I will- YEESHA: Make them shrink and die BAHRO: He's a broken hnau We can't give him sense YEESHA: I doubt e'en Bahro Could mend that fence BAHRO: Would that we could hinder Esher Or else thaw his frozen heart ESHER: Everybody will soon bow YEESHA: Don't go counting chickens now BAHRO: Maybe we won't have to bow To the Master of the Art.

  6. Note: I actually heard the whippoorwill on Haven, near the hunting post.

    Jiladis

    Appears in: BoT Race: D'ni Jiladis was a Guildsman from the Book of Ink-Makers who helped Aitrus bury the deceased council members after the Fall. His fate is not known, but it is possible that he settled on the Surface somewhere.
  8. As sung by Nelah To the tune of “I Will Survive†by Gloria Gaynor Aitrus jumped down that crack; I was petrified Convinced that in a wahrk’s maw I was going to die But the Maker had more plans for me in this life I was excited to hear that Aitrus’ wife Katran was back to set us free And she Wrote a brand-new Age for to house the Moiety I’d long been waiting for this time. I should have stayed far from despair For I had known all along that Aitrus and Katran care So Gehn please fall into Wahrk Lake Bite the dust now, your adult life’s been a mystake Weren’t you the one who said that you could ne’er be defied? You thought I’d crumble? You thought I’d lay down and die? Oh no not I! I will survive As long as I can link to Tê I know I’ll stay alive I can help my people live, I can help them flee from Lord Gehn I will survive, I will survive, I will survive! Now when you caught Katran we did not lose heart (I’m guessing that you thought we would fall apart) Say! Crazy Cho’s knocked out and off the cliff fell down And word has gone around that there’s a new guy in town Sent by Aitrus to lend a hand This stranger speaks in languages that we don’t understand But can figure out a lot; Gehn I think you’re in the soup You and your lust for pow’r and your mind full of loops So Gehn please fall into Wahrk Lake Bite the dust now, your adult life’s been a mystake Weren’t you the one who said that you could ne’er be defied? You thought I’d crumble? You thought I’d lay down and die? Oh no not I! I will survive As long as I can link to Tê I know I’ll stay alive I can help my people live, I can help them flee from Lord Gehn I will survive, I will survive, I will survive

    Mountain Chickadee

    Appears in: M4R (heard only) Found On: Earth; Tomahna is just within their range. This bird can be heard on Tomahna during the daytime. You don't see it, though. More information can be found here. However, similar birds can be seen on the walkways and bird feeder, except that they bear a red plumage trailing behind.
  10. Tribion checked the bird boxes that June evening in 2004. The eastern bluebird families and purple martin colony were doing quite well. No injured or orphaned birds, no dead birds, no signs of predators. So she linked to the cabin on Deri’yn and went to sleep. Tim Nobrein believed the murder libels the Falcon Nest Sentinel had made up about Tribion, Birili, and Salar FitzAilesh back in March. Birili was dead and Salar still overseas, but he figured he’d kill Tribion. He saw a Deri’yn Korvax near a fencepost. A very strong man, he uprooted the fencepost. Then he linked, and found that the post had a birdhouse containing four eggs and two bluebird parents, irate to 25. Oh well, that meant a lesser charge he could get off on… Tribion dreamed that she was playing her maral-obe in Sedge Warbler, the jazz band she and some others had recently formed. But then the audience started egging her and sudden pains in her head and leg woke her up. She soon realized she was being beaten with a birdhouse! She linked out and screamed for help. Then she blacked out. She survived, although she developed gangrene and lost her right leg at the knee. Tim was convicted of attempted murder and went to prison for 20 years. As none of the bluebird chicks had been ready to hatch, all were dead. But where were the parents? Tribion thought she glimpsed them on Deri’yn just before linking out. In those days, Deri’yn had fewer birds than it has supported since. But given how common starlings were spreading through North America and zebra finches through Cevenia(In an e-mail, one of the DRC had said the finches would become pests) it was advisable to see if the bluebirds were on Deri’yn or back in Wisconsin. The two birds in question had both been banded at a state park in Tennessee the previous winter. That winter, they called the park. No, the bluebirds in question weren’t there. The years went by and no sign. The emerald and green-headed excavators of Deri’yn excavated new nesting cavities and after using them left them for the naranos. Tribion and her husband Romulus Tranzer kept their eyes out for eastern bluebirds in those nesting cavities. They even set up birdhouses. Each time, they saw a narano pair. They tried laying out dustworms(the Deri’yn equivalent of mealworms) in a mealworm tray from the purple martin colony. The excavators went wild over them, but not one bluebird did they see. Maybe the bluebirds had eaten some bad bugs or caught some disease before they could breed. Maybe their biological clocks had gone wrong. Maybe they hadn’t linked to Deri’yn at all, but had suffered some mischance during fall migration. That was most likely. No risk of introduced thrushes becoming a wren in the works, it seemed. But in 2071, Hrea Warkanu bought the Deri’yn Korman. On that Age, what should he see exiting a hollow tree but a bird with a blue back. It was an eastern bluebird. A small but slowly growing population is holding its own. The possibility remains quite remote to this day, but what if they expand to the point where they crowd out the narano?

    Temple Island

    Appears In: Riven Location: Riven Temple Island (also referred to as Allatwan by the Rivenese) consisted of a main land mass and two smaller isles. The Link-in point of Riven is on the main island, and it also contains the Golden Superdome that redirects energy to Gehn's Firemarble Domes, the Star Fissure, and the Beetle Room with prayers to Gehn. The larger of the two smaller islands contains the Temple itself. Gehn would transmit images and messages from a hidden chamber on this island, appearing and disappearing within the massive imager in the Temple as if by magic or divine power. Upon entering the temple from the outside for the first time, you will catch a fleeting glimpse of his image. The smallest island, little more than a pinnacle of land, is where the Firemarble Dome for Temple Island is located.
  12. I fly 'round Edanna looking for food Watching out for that pitcher plant, wah-oh The plant that was nearly the death of me But then the leaf opened to set me free Hey! Nemel lotus spores are good, oh-da-lee-oh My chick must eat too and so I fly 'round The fruit has a large creature inside, wah-oh I take the fruit home where the chick doth wait I circle around this island great And then in the nest I touch down, oh-da-lee-oh I'm just a very pretty birdie With a feathery crest above, wah-oh And plumage colors that are red and blue And powerful wings, it is very true I'm not like the landbound squee, oh-da-lee-oh

    Koena

    Appears In: BoA Race: Age 37 Koena was Gehn's acolyte on the 37th Age. However, as Gehn was fond of doing, he named Koena "Fah", or "One", rather than calling him by his birth name. Atrus befriended him during the time he spent on Age 37, and was surprised to discover that Koena no longer recognized him when he returned to the Age after Gehn's last revisions to its description, as the link had shifted to a new world that was similar, but not the same.
  14. Appears In: M3E Location: Edanna This is the third "tier" of Edanna's ecosystem, moving from the top of the tree downward. It is located just above the base of the tree, which contains the Swamp. This section of the tree is full of life, and appears similar in many respects to more temperate forests on Earth in its plant density, although the scale of most of the plants on Edanna makes it appear more like a rain forest. Species of plants found within the Forest level include the Lambent Orchid, the Tongue Fern, the Jumping Dragon, the Swing Vine, the Quaffler Fig, and the Aurora Blossom. Saavedro's carnivorous Venus Flytrap plant can also be found here, and the Electra Ray can be brought down to this level as well. Atrus left an imager in the Forest level as part of his plans to teach Sirrus and Achenar The Art. Saavedro used it to record a message of his own for Atrus to hear, and created one of his three murals nearby.
  15. Grossameries are such cool birds Flying around trumpeting Taking folks up to the linker They just make you want to sing. Seagulls fly Over the island of Myst You see them fly As you go by The vault containing Stoneship. Birds fly when The Rivenese sentinel Sounds the alarm Birds think there's harm And so fly away. Zone-tailed hawks, flying overhead Above the surface of D'nî And as they fly, they are dreaming I guess they dream of fat squees.
