Mysterium 2013 Location Announcement!

Shorah to the community! I’m Capella, chair of the Falling Man Group for 2013, and I look forward to working with the new committee to bring Myst fans everywhere a wonderful Mysterium.


The Falling Man Group knows that you’ve all been patiently waiting to hear about Mysterium 2013, and we’re here to bring you the good news: Mysterium 2013 will take place in Rochester, New York.


Rochester has a great location in upstate New York. It’s right alongside Lake Ontario and less than a day from from many major cities, including Toronto, New York City, Philadelphia, Buffalo, Washington DC, and Boston. The city is beautiful in the summer, and packed with things to do that will appeal to Myst fans. Here’s a short list:

-Strong Museum of Play (complete with an International Center for the History of Electronic Games, plus a Butterfly Garden!)

-The George Eastman House, a museum of photography and film

-A science center with a planetarium

-Seabreeze amusement park (accessible via bus routes)

-The Dryden Theatre (one of the few places in the US able to show nitrate film)

-A variety of attractive parks and walking trails

-And much much more.


The 2013 Mysterium planning committee will consist of Capella, Lutra, estelendur, and Kaelri. You’ll be hearing more about us and our roles in the next few weeks. The Falling Man Group will provide their experience, resources, and support to the new committee.

We can’t wait to see you in August!


The Future of Mysterium

Hey Folks

Sorry we’ve been so quiet lately, but I swear we’re still working on Mysterium 2012 behind the scenes! We planned to have the logo chosen for you this weekend, but it has been surprisingly difficult to get us all together to choose one. Hopefully by next week! But that’s not what I’m here to talk about right now. Instead, I want to discuss the future of Mysterium and get your input. Note that this is largely just me talking unofficially, Eleri and Odo may not agree with some of my points, and no decisions have been made yet.
