Worn books, aged leather, hidden paths, striking vistas, and displaced machinery- an accumulation of images from, inspired by, and relevant to the ages of Myst.

Mystic Places is back from Utah with tons of photos!  I’ll be posting a couple sets of them this week- it’s hard not to think of Myst when you’re wandering alone through a desert.

Salina Turda | Transylvania, Romania

Salina Turda is a centuries-old salt mine in Romania that has been converted into an underground tourist attraction complete with rides, a museum, and health spa. Visitors to the mine can go boating on an underground lake, attend a concert in a 180-seat amphitheater, and ride a carousel deep within a salt cavern. [ x ]

I’ve just started an in-character exploration blog for Myst Online: Uru Live. The first entry is up and you can read it HERE.If anyone here has a similar Myst or Uru blog let me know as I’d love to follow you back.

Shorah! While I haven’t done anything of the sort myself and I’m not sure how many active blogs one could find today, I can point you to the directory of this fine established tradition if you haven’t browsed it already! :)

Hey there! I’m actually keeping an in-character journal while playing through Uru, so you are among good and dorky company. :)I’m definitely planning on posting it to Mystic Places once it’s scanned and cleaned up- always exciting to see other fans doing the same!
