Uru Glossary


This version of the Uru Glossary contains the items from Myst Online – Uru Live (2007-2008), the new revival (2010-),
as well as the new fan-created Ages added after August 2020.

Offline Uru ABM and TPOTS version

Fan created Ages

The currently available public Uru shards:

Gehn shard     Minkata Shard     The Open Cave shard     Guild of Messengers shard list

In the latter two shards you can play on-line MOUL as well as the fan created Ages.

Cyan's official MOUL site

uru live,moulThere 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 the game. Items in light green color are referred to as OOC. New fan age entries are in skyblue.

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

Apart from some basic information regarding the DRC and its members, Uru Glossary is not dealing with the IC RPG storyline in detail. You may read about those events in the Uru Live or other forums.

More additional info can be found in the archives of The Guild of Archivists, D'ni Explorer archive, The Lost Library of D'ni, D'ni Jazz Club, Wiki at openuru.org, Wikipedia (Myst franchise), Wikipedia (Uru), Rel.to help, 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.
