As a total newbie to MOUL (although I have got a few bearings...), I would like a quick summary of the story behind this game. Any help?

Here is vidkid's recap of the online game.

Although there are major spoilers in it, there are a number of resources in the Goodie List.

You might also wish to visit the rel.to site.

Thanks that was a really interesting piece of reading!
But I more wanted a short story of the D'ni, not of the discovery of the Cavern. So I would appreciate that...
And one question about that recap: what was the "terrible event" where a bahro screamed and everyone went back to their Reltos at once? *OOC* Did that really happen, or was it just part of the story of the game? *OOC*

mmh, I keep thinking of it but I don't think there is a short story of D'ni.

Regarding the Great Scream. Yes it was true. It marked the moment that the game story officially passed from the D'mala Until Uru Shard to the MystOnline servers.

Ah, so it's kind of an explanation for the transition, right? The scream did exist, though?

Exploring the cavern is like an archeological dig. You find little bits of info here and there. What I've learned is spread out over a good piece of the last decade.

If someone knows of a good synopsis of D'ni history, please post a link. Otherwise, you have to do some exploring and reading on your own. A good place to look is in the City. In the Hall of King's are journals with information on the Kings of D'ni. A number of the King journals did not make the transition from the offline version to the Live version and can be found here. Other journals can be found in the Library and on the Tokotah rooftop.

There are also 3 novels... The Book of Ti'ana, The Book of Atrus, and The Book of D'ni. They were also available in a collected work call The Myst Reader. They are out of print but you may still be able to find them somewhere.

Really, really brief D'ni history:

The Ronay develop the Art.. the writing of Ages.
10,000 years ago, the Ronay home world Garternay is destroyed and some flee to the Age of Tehranee (sp?) which is Earth.
The Ronay take up residence in a Cavern under what is now New Mexico in the USA and become the D'ni.
A couple of hundred years ago, discord over contact with us natives causes a social crisis which results in the death of almost all of the D'ni people.
Our story of Uru begins with the discovery of the underground city in 1988.

Dearest Lyrositor, a few days ago, somebody else asked almost the same question
and got really a lot of great hints and links... Please have a look here...

What I suggested over in that thread and topic was a really very short but nonetheless
"compact, concise and nicely illustrated summary of the history of the whole D'niverse
with a proper chronology"...
Please visit this site and download the PDF file called Myst_history.pdf... Have fun... :D
