Live Stream!

Live Stream Standby Graphic web

We will be broadcasting this weekend’s events and activities on Justin.tv. While we were planning on using Cyan Chat for our chat this year, it looks like Cho has decided to take a sabbatical. For the time being we’ll be re-activating the chat on the Justin.tv streaming page, so if you’d like to chat, head on over to http://www.justin.tv/mysteriumcon. You can also watch the live stream on the Mysterium website by going to our Live Stream page.

Barring unforeseen technical issues, we will also be recording portions of the live stream to post later on our YouTube channel.

We’ll be streaming the opening ceremonies at 11:00 (that’s 2 hours and 15 minutes from the time of this posting). See you soon!

 

 

Cyan Travel Directions

For those of you who will be driving to Cyan on Saturday, here are some directions on how to get to their office:

From the hotel:

  • Exit the hotel parking lot onto 3rd Ave.
  • Go under the interstate and then turn left onto S Perry St.
  • Turn left onto 2nd Ave, then take an immediate right onto the ramp to Hamilton St.
  • Continue north on Hamilton St. for 7.1 miles (it will turn into Nevada St along the way).
  • Turn right onto N Newport Hwy/U.S. 2
  • Continue north for 3.3 miles.
  • Cyan Headquarters is on your left, at the “Branches” sign. You will pass an Arby’s on your right just before the turn-in. If you pass Subway on your right, you have gone too far.

The address is 14617 N Newport Hwy, Mead WA 99021

As a reminder, doors open at Cyan at 9:30 AM on Saturday. To accommodate our bus transportation, please park in the inner lot (closest to the buildings) so that the busses can turn around in the outer lot.

Schedule Updates, Cyan Activities, and Paper People

Myst Poster

Mysterium is just two weeks away (14 days, 20 hours, 50 minutes, and 28 seconds, but who’s counting?) and we’ve got a few more announcements for you.

Our schedule has been updated with lots of new information. Check out all of the nifty things going on! We have a very full weekend planned, so expect ambitious and firm cat herding as we work to make it all go smoothly and on-time. Of special note: Bryan Stratton, author of the Prima Strategy Guides for Uru, Myst IV, and Myst V, will be at Mysterium this year, and will have a discussion panel on Sunday morning!

If exploring the desert is more your speed (and we know it is for some of you), there is an optional Sunday field trip to Livingstones Rock Ranch outside of Spokane. This trip will include a guided hike through local geology, a tour of their Mineral Museum, and a chance to dig up your own sparkly stones. Those wishing to attend should be ready to depart the hotel at 10:30 AM; trip and ride-share sign-up will be posted in the meeting room. There is an additional cost of $12.50 per person for this activity that is not included in your registration fee.

In addition, we have a lot of stuff happening at Cyan. We are thrilled to announce that for the first time in Mysterium’s history, both Rand and Robyn Miller will be on-hand for a Q&A panel on Saturday morning! Cyan will also have a variety of merchandise available for purchase at their office on Saturday, including a new, limited-run Myst poster that features a special varnished watermark commemorating the 20th anniversary of the game. This poster (which you can see above) will be available for $20, limit 2 per person, with only 300 available! Be sure to check the schedule for our full itinerary at Cyan Headquarters, and who knows, there may still be a few surprises…

Can’t make it to Mysterium, but want to be there in spirit? Send a picture of yourself to paperpeople@mysterium.net, and we’ll be sure your printed likeness makes an appearance.

Registration and Event Reminders

Hello again, everyone. It’s officially summer, and Mysterium is fast approaching! We’ve got a couple of timely reminders for you today.

First, the last day for online registration and t-shirt pre-orders is July 4th. That’s only two weeks away! If you plan to attend, please register online so that we can get an accurate estimate of attendance numbers. If you plan on buying a Mysterium t-shirt, we strongly encourage you to do so either by pre-ordering one to pick up at the convention, or by using our Square Market store to buy one that can be shipped to you. Order for shirts through our Square store will also close after July 4th, so get your orders in now!

Second, the deadline for event submissions is June 30th. If you’ll be at Mysterium and you have an idea for a panel discussion, presentation, display, or activity that you’re interested in running, please let us know! Head over to http://www.mysterium.net/events, be sure to read the event guidelines, and fill out the form at the bottom of the page.

We’re so excited about this year’s Mysterium, and we can’t wait to see you all in Spokane. Shorah b’shemtee!
