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!


Wrapping 2012 and the Future

Shorah Everybah’ro

This will most likely be the last time I post here as Chair of the FMG or the Mysterium Committee. As of September 1st 2012, I am stepping down as Chair and leaving the Mysterium planning group. Don’t worry, this is entirely for personal reasons; Mysterium is still safe (for now… but I’m getting ahead of myself). Eleri and Odo were at this before I got here, and they’ll continue to make great Mysteria after I leave.Continue reading
