The Myst Embassy is pleased to announce the “Book of Lost Ages” contest as a fan-run promotional & creative outlet for Myst Online: Uru Live (www.mystonline.com).
Entrants can use a wide range of multimedia tools to create a story for one of the Ages of the D’ni, an ancient civilization that had the ability to link to other worlds through specially written books.

Entries will be accepted until July 1st, after which they will be screened by a panel of judges; the top five entries from that screening will be voted on by the Myst Online: Uru Live community.
The winner of that voting period will be the recipient of the grand prize, Adobe Creative Suite 3, as provided by the Myst Embassy.

For full contest rules and entry guidelines, please visit www.mystembassy.net/contests/

The Myst Embassy is a fan based group providing volunteer support and outreach for the Myst & Uru series of games by Cyan Worlds, Inc.

The Book of Lost Ages contest is an independent work of the Myst Embassy, and is presented in accordance with Cyan Worlds, Inc. Fan Created Art guidelines.

Unfortunately, I have absolutely 0 artistic talent.

Remember, you can write a story, write journal pages that describe the age, create maps, pictures, design specs, illustrations, etc. Think of it as something you might find in a journal lying around D'ni, or a Writer's library of notes. Be creative!

And as for Adobe CS3, it'll be either the Design suite or the web suite - winner's choice :)

Should this be a story about ages we already know or about "new" (fan created) ages!

You design the Age. From there, present the age in some format, as long as it is in 7 pages of the right size. It could be a story, or journal entries describing it, drawings, pictures, maps, combinations of the above.

Those questions are answered in the first three of the rules.

We'll accept a Power Point file if that is what you have got.

If I understand the intentions of the rules, are all our satisfactory designs going to eventually be compiled into a single book which we will ask Cyan to include in Uru at some point? Or will only the winning entry be submitted?

Is the emphasis on the Age, or on the story of how the Age was lost?

The top five designed will be submitted to Cyan in hopes they could include it at some point.

The emphasis should generally be on the age itself.

So are the five entries going to be put together into a single book of about 35 pages? If so, won't the styles of the different artists/authors conflict?

Would I still be able to design an Age which I submitted with Age Creation tools when they become available?

Can you send in more than one entry?

he he, just read the rules, sounds good!

Quick question - if our names are required on every page, how will the anonymous unbiased voting be done at the end? :wink:
