Uru Glossary


This version of the Uru Glossary contains only the items of Uru - Ages Beyond Myst and The Path of the Shell.

Myst Online – Uru Live version      Fan created Ages

uru liveThere are several names, terms and expressions used in Uru (many of them originating from the slang of the early explorers), which are unknown to new adventurers. To help them we have created this brief glossary. We are aware that some spoiling is inevitable, however, we have tried to keep this to a minimum. Items in pink are basic terms in Ages Beyond Myst (ABM), the CD game. Items in yellow are available only in the expansion pack The Path of the Shell (TPOTS). Items in light green color are referred to as OOC.

On touching or clicking any of these small   icons an additional image pops up.

More additional info can be found in the archives of Wiki at openuru.org, The Guild of Archivists, D'ni Explorer archive, Wikipedia (Myst franchise), Wikipedia (Uru), Guild of Greeters, D'ni Pedia Writers, MYSTlore wiki, Myst wiki, Myst Ages, Uru Obsession, and at other sites as well. Unfortunately, several excellent places have ceased to exist. Bear in mind, however, that usually the more detailed the info the more you are spoiled.

We hope that it will help you in your Uru quest!
