The D’ni Restoration Council is the body responsible for opening up the Cavern to the public and most of the restoration of D’ni and its Ages. The DRC were active for two periods of restoration, 1997–2004 and 2006–2008. However, further funding could not be found and the DRC has since disbanded.
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.

Beetles are an insect that was important to the D’ni people, although images and representations of them do not appear frequently throughout the D’ni city or many of their cultural works. Indeed, the best representations of them – as well as much of the information about them – we have came from Riven, the 5th Age of Gehn.
