During their third adventure with Atrus, The Stranger is invited to Tomahna, Atrus and Catherine’s post-Myst home. Situated not far from The Cleft, Tomahna is something of an oasis.
While The Stranger would eventually be able to visit Tomahna in its entirety, during this trip they were only able to see a small portion of it before their visit was interrupted by Saavedro and the quest to reclaim the Releeshan Linking Book.
For those who might not be aware, Mysterium is an annual gathering of Explorers and DRC members. Starting in 2000, it takes place in Spokane, Washington, home of Cyan Worlds, Inc. 2019 marked the 20th anniversary of the event.
While Explorers and we here at the DAA like to focus on the grandeur and romanticism of the D’ni, the truth is there is much darkness and sorrow that surrounds both the people and the City which they inhabited.
The Wahrk was a large, whale-like creature that was native to the Age of Riven, the home Age of Catherine and Gehn’s 5th Age. It was different from most whales on Earth in that is had a large fin which rose from the middle of its head and tapered slightly as it ran down the length of its body, dropping off sharply at the tip of the tail. They also had two long tusks, one on each side of its body, protruding from just in front of their pectoral fins.
