D'ni Holiday: The Great Crash

On September 18th, 2014 the primary matrix of the KI-device, known as "the Lattice", suffered a major cascade failure, leading to a subsequent event known as the "Great Crash" of its virtual processing nodes. Unable to utilize the Nexus or rely upon the KI-coordinate system from the Great Zero, travel to and from the cavern became hazardous at best. Thankfully, through dedicated efforts of several Restoration Engineers, the Lattice was restored to functionality after weeks of dedicated work. There were severe data corruption issues, however.

Both the KI-devices and Lattice were able to be restarted only at their "baseline" state, very similar to that which the DRC encountered when investigating the cavern during the first Restoration. It is unknown at this time if Victor Laxman was consulted during these repairs.

Access to Nexus and various cavern locations may now be visited with relative safety, assuming normal precautions are taken during such explorations.

D'ni Location: 
Ae'gura & beyond
Date of the event: 
Repeats every year until Thu Oct 04 2018 .
September 18, 2014 (All day)

Cyan working on a new game property

At Cyan's new forums, discussion in a topic titled Looking Forward to that Kickstarter ;) turned into a puzzle hunt when Ryan Warzecha ("greydragon") dropped the following teaser:

Where is everyone? Where is the wild speculation? The pages of discussion? Has everything moved to tumblr? I mean when someone leaks an image, you kind of hope for people to look at it. 
 
What happened?
 
Discussion turned to an image posted to Cyan's Facebook page by Cyan employee Eric A. Anderson ("edoublea").  After Eric and Ryan dropped a few clues, Ryan challenged fans:
No more hints... Let the game begin!
 
Since then, Cyantists have posted additional pictures and clues, in which forum puzzle participants have identified hidden messages including the slogan, "Prepare To Be Scattered..."

Video Games Live Level 3 Kickstarter

Video Games Live, the music concert created by Tommy Tallarico and Jack Wall (composer for Myst III: Exile and Myst IV: Revelation) is running a fundraiser on Kickstarter for a third album.  The kickstarter runs until approximately 9AM Eastern (07:00 KI time) on Friday, September 13th.

Fans may recall that Video Games Live's original album featured a medley of music from Myst, Uru, Exile, and Revelation.  At this time, no new Myst compositions have been announced for the 3rd album (though anyone pledging $10,000 or more could make that happen!); thus far, music from The Secret of Monkey Island, Street Fighter II, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim have been announced as planned compositions should the fundraiser succeed.

Of special note, unlike Video Games Live's second album, all of the music for the third album is to be recorded without a live audience.

Last but not least, Tommy Tallarico will be holding an AMA ("Ask Me Anything") on popular social news site Reddit.com this coming Sunday September 8th at 5pm Pacific/8pm Eastern (18:00 KI time).

Update 11-Sep-2013:  The Kickstarter is funded, AND music from DOTA 2 by Tim Larkin (composer for Uru and MYST 5: End of Ages) will be included on the new album!
