The Age Awards are around the corner(viewtopic.php?f=66&t=28807&p=427575#p427575). Please post your favourite Myst Online age below. Please, no fan ages. It would be a great deal of help if you stated why it's your favourite.

For just existing in, i love eder tsogal. Sunshine, water to splash, rocks to hop about on, just my kind of place.

If I were to answer the best "all around Age", the puzzle I love most to solve, the story that intrigues me the most, some of the best music, most unique views, and a place I do enjoy playing around in... it would have to be Kadish Tolesa.

There might be others I think are prettier, like the Nighttime Minkata-- but I didn't care for the Minkata puzzle. Some might be easier to solve, like Teledahn; but it's not as mysterious nor intriguing.

As the all-around most entertaining Age, it has to be Kadish Tolesa.

My opinions below...

Best overall Age: Gahreesen (though I am still easily mistaken on how it's spelt!). It begins as a small mystery inside a stone building, with something rotating around you. Then you figure out your way thrue the corridors, get your KI, explore thrue cracks to find a way to switch on the power. When finally you find the elevator up you are mind blown with the huge outside view of the outside of the first building and the music (that starts when you walk on the first bridge), the Gahreesen Theme, is absolutely lovely. Every time I visit the cavern I feel like going there and just sitting on the bridge and looking at the lush view rotating around.

And then you get to the main building (hopefully after not too many failed jump attempts!). While the activities inside the main fortress are rather limited, mostly due to the Wall being not active, I still enjoy the two conference rooms and the top levels. So many different environments within the same age!

Others:

- Best graphics: First prize: K'veer. That room with the window and view to the cavern - there's no competition! Also I must mention Kadish Tolesa: while the outside forest is a bit blunt, there are several very nice looking places, and I repeatedly enjoy the views around this age.

- Best music: "The Barons Theme" (Sharpers D'ni Office), Minkata ("Badlands" theme) and "Ercana Harvester", that plays around when you enter the factory.

- Best layout: got to be Ahnonay. When you finally realize how the spheres work, it's just huge mind-blowing moment. And finally when you get to see the outside of the spheres (and the fact that you can have two people, and actually see the spheres rotating) is just gorgeous. I can't think how complex building that Age must have been!

Ohh.. I only answered favorite Age. Here's the rest:

- Best puzzles

Teledahn. Specifically because the puzzles fit perfectly into the 'story' of the Age, making them 100% intuitive. Still a challenge to solve, but you jut just have to look at the details, and you can solve them without help. Teledahn is the only Age I solved without needing a single hint-- which is not to say it's the easiest Age...

- Best graphics

Have to again give this to Kadish Tolesa. There may be a few very pretty spots here and there, gardens or starfields I visit regularly. But EVERY bit of Kadish Tolesa is pretty and interesting, and it's a complex Age with a lot of different and unique areas. Love the moon room!!

- Best music

Hands down, the best song in the whole game is 'Spore me' from Teledahn. Second place goes to the music you hear in Night-time Minkata. "Follow Me" I think it might be called?

- Best overall age

As I said above, Kadish Tolesa - combining the puzzles, the views, the music, the storyline, it all works well together.

- Best layout

I'm still tempted to say the story behind the puzzles makes Kadish Tolesa the best laid-out Age. But if I specifically have to pick something different, I'll say Eder Kemo and Eder Gira.

I am writing my script next week, probably on Wednesday, whatever is here at that point will become the "People's choice".
