I've been playing Uru for over 2 years now, and I've never seen this addressed. The journey cloth emblem in our linking books look different than the journey cloths we touch in the ages. On the top is this extra piece of cloth. Does anyone know why that's there? It doesn't correlate to the actual journeys in any way that I can think of. Any truthful IC or OOC explanation would be welcome.

I've wondered about that myself for a long time. I still don't know the answer, but it's good to keep asking!

Here's one answer I think may have something to do with it: It's not a journey cloth in your book that you're touching, right? If it were, it would bookmark a link-in point for your Relto. So instead, it has to act as the link-out for another journey cloth - maybe the bit of extra fabric acts as the bridge between the link-out and link-in, while distinguishing between them.

I was just thinking it's where the glue is placed to hold that cloth in the book.

It's a bookmark, not another Cloth... so they don't have to look the same :).

I always thought it symbolized that the Journey is connected.

A bookmark makes pretty good sense I guess. And the connection idea is cool.

D'OH! :shock: Yeah, it just hit me. It actually "bookmarks" where you left off in the age.
