Myst Easter Egg - The D'ni Mosaic

If you've already played and completed the game, you'll have been to D'ni. (D'ni is the place that you arrive in after you've used the green book in the fireplace in the library.) You'll also have noticed that the floor is a mosaic, making a picture of a man's face. That man isn't Atrus, or Sirrus or Achenar, or any other other person in the game (almost). It's actually Chuck Carter, a real person who created a lot of the graphics for Myst!(The RivenGuild website has confirmed this one.)

Mystfan, Eric, you are both wrong. D'ni is the underground city located on earth. In fact, Atrus grew up on the Saharria Desert in Africa. Well it is a long story but if you are interested in why Myst is the way it is, were Riven originated from, and how the "ages" work, I would advise you to read the fictional origins of Myst called "Myst: The Book of Atrus" which is actually a very good book. I am a big fan, so I don’t like it when people don’t get all this right. >:-O

For all of the misspellings, it is **D'ni** but is pronounced **Dunny**

I am sorry but I must disagree, on pg. 119 of the 2nd Myst book (The Book of Ti'ana) there is a very obvious reference to Earth: "The lodge had been named by her father in a moment of good humor, not after the hunting lodge in which he had spent his own childhood, back in EUROPE, but because it was lodged into a shelf between the the rock wall and the shelf below." Even without this evidence it is still painfully obvious that there world is ours, even though there are no earth references in the first book. I also believe that I already clarified the earlier mistakes of comrades. And yes, I may have assumed too much by claiming that the desert was that of the Sahara. Thanx for keeping me on my toes, Bye.

Look, they might call him Ri'neref, but the actual PICTURE is of Chuck Carter. This has been confirmed by several websites and indeed by "Rawa", Chris Brandkamp and the Miller brothers. I rest my case.

There is a D'Ni, just look at the D'Ni restoration site. It is confirmed, they have made the journey down. I think I found the Volcano in google earth, it fits all the characteristics I've found, and there is a big gash in the ground next to it (possible cleft).

D'ni IS on Earth. Rand Miller specifically said in the Book of Atrus that the D'ni believed that the great Garternay writer Ri'Neref wrote the Book of Earth where the D'ni fled to after the mysterious downfall of the Garternay age. D'ni is a cavern within the planet Earth. How could Atrus know English? Anna was human. It even said that her father was from Britain. You really need to reread the book. And the picture of Chuck Carter on the floor is supposed to be Ri'Neref. It's in the book too. BOO YA

There certainly is a D'ni (pronounced "Dunny" by Atrus) in Myst. The D'ni you visit is actually one sealed off room in a very large cavern. Riven is not in the original Myst game (although you see Atrus writing in the book that links to it), you link to it from D'ni in the second game, Riven. And D'ni certainly is a cavern in the planet earth, it is mentioned briefly in the first book, 'Myst:the book of Atrus' and repeatedly in the second book, 'Myst: the book of Ti'anna' (which actually takes place before the first book).

Actually, Riven Guild is no more. Gordon Currie (the webmaster) didn't have enough money to keep it going. Go to www.rivenguild.com and see for yourself.

I had NO idea that there was so much MYST material out there (i.e. I am no expert). However, it seems to me that the name you are looking for is DUNNY. See under Myst/Qtw/Dunny.

YES there is an age in MYST called D'ni. That is the final age in the original MYST game. RIVEN is another age completely.

D'ni isn't on Earth. The book of Atrus never said that it was on Earth. It merely says that Atrus grew up in a crack in a desert, it didn't say anything about the Sahara (check your spelling)Desert in Africa. Rand and Robin Miller wanted to stay away from linking the story line to any part of actuality, it is pure fiction. The book never mentions Earth. I will give you the fact that D'ni is an underground city, but at the end of Myst that IS where Atrus is. You know that it can't be Riven because in the very begining Riven you transport from the room with Atrus to Riven. The room is a hall in the city of D'ni RivenGuild is a web site, not a place.
