So I know that in reality the Great Scream was when the Uru server (or shard of whatever) switched from D'mala to MOUL, but what is the In Cavern reason for it happening? I know that from an IC perspective it's never been fully explained, but what is the IC theory on this?

Things were reset so I assume that IC the Great Scream signalled the Bahro doing something with their linky powers to undo things the DRC had done? Or maybe it was to indicate that Esher had stolen the Tablet, as suggested elsewhere on the forum.

Can anyone who was around at that time cast any light on this?

Thanks in advance.

Personally I didn't care for the great scream I didn't really like how it was handled I'd rather have just joined the new server and them not try to IC the changes.

I feel the great scream would have been better used to signify the freeing of the Bahro.

Anyway, in an IC sense I don't really acknowledge it I just don't mention it.

There was no in cavern reason for the scream to happen..it was just to explain the server changes. Esher had nothing to do with it as he would have already been dealt with by Yeesha and the Bahro at that point.

(retcon by Cyan means EoA happened in 2005. Great Scream was 06)

I didn't even register the date discrepancy. :shock: Yeah, it is kind of lame, TBH. But then, there are a lot of things I like to "fansplain" no just in Myst, but many other fandoms.

All the retconning Cyan did really did screw things up.
