That's a linking book to Riven, not a descriptive book. I'm talking about the size of descriptive books. Linking books are often pretty thin, and it's not easy to tell how thick the Tay book is from what we see in-game

It is tricky to draw conclusions from Myst/Riven universe to URU universe as they are not the same. As stated above.

I know this is an old topic but just checking the forums for the first time in a while (busy life). My Thoughts on Tay and Gehn.. Katran gets the Moity to Tay, leaving the trap book in Riven. The book given to Atrus is the Rebel Age (Tay). The Trap book is a linking book, not the descriptive book for the Prison Age (remember Myst 4, we find out that the books that Atrus had burned in Myst were just linking books, the descriptive books were in Tomanha). as for the book him and Katran link through at the end, If you remember the beginning he says "signal me and I will bring a linking book to bring us back". ergo, the book that falls into the fissue is the Linking book back to D'ni (from D'ni he is able to link back to Myst (thanks to your help in Myst). When Atrus made the Prison Age for Gehn, he likely (my theory) created a d'ni looking age, wrote the linking book to it, then went to another part of the age, or used a fireplace, to destroy the only escape linking book from the age as he linked out. (link out, book falls into fire, no more escape route).

As for Garternay, If I remember correctly, Linking books had to be written within the age they were to link to?.. so all the Ronay had to do was write the Linking book back to Garternay in Garternay then bring it with them to another age to be able to link back. (You don't need a Descriptive Book unless you are linking to a world you can't already get to or observe). Linking books = access to age you can already see / Descriptive books = main book to create initial link to a "new" (to you) age.

You're all basing your understanding of how The Art work from an offshoot of people who (as history has shown) severely hampered The Art via rules and regulations. Yeesha coming along and blowing it out of the water isn't magical..she's just looking past all the rules the D'ni self enforced to see what The Art is actually capable of.

We don't actually know if Descriptive Books are needed, given Garternay it's likely they might not be but then we don't know anything about Garternay. Given the Bahro 10,000 years of enslavement for all we know that's where they Ronay stole the Art from in the first place.

We know for a fact that the Age 37 descriptive book was burned.

We do not know for a fact that a descriptive book for Garternay doesn’t exist.

The possibility of its existence in the Tree of Possibilities should have allowed linking book to Garternay to work. Until its star became a red giant, at least.

What they said. All we know is that if a D'ni descriptive book was altered sufficiently to divert the link to a new Age, or if the link was completely severed, the D'ni linking books would reflect this. All we can infer from this is that if there were no descriptive book, any linking books would always work unless damaged themselves, not that they'd never work.
