Streen created the topic: Digital Temple

Someone over at TOTJO brought up the topic of "if not a physical temple, why not a digital one?". The idea kind of got buried in the forum, but I stumbled upon it today and thought it was a great idea. I had an idea of my own on that matter, and these are the posts with which I replied:

This might not be everyone's cup of tea, but this Second Life thing reminded me of Myst Online. That game has been around for over a decade and is similar in function. You create an avatar, and continue on to the underground world of D'ni. There are some puzzles involved, which IMO just makes it more worth your time ;)

You can find it here, but undoubtedly there will be questions, so PM me if you're curious :D
DOWNLOAD



General Steps to the JEDI Hood:

1) Download Myst Online
2) Run game.
3) Ciick "Need an account?". Enter email address.
4) Once signed up, Log In.
5) After updates are installed, create avatar.
6) Once you Link in, go click on the Hand symbol of the post, then click on the Book inside.
7) Follow Cleft Walkthrough
8) Once back in Relto (the island in the sky), face the posts with the hut to your back. Click on the post Hand to the far left.
9) You'll find yourself in a stone chamber. Find the exit, turn right, turn right again, turn left.
10) Click on the blue, glowing circle. This will give you your "Ki".
11) Look to your left. There is a Book on a pedastal. Click on the image in the book.
12) You are now in the Nexus. Click the circle symbol on the left of the machine.
13) Click Public Links. Scroll through until you see JEDI's Hood.
14) Welcome to the neighborhood! :D

PS Let me know if/when you get there, and I'll try and meet you.

PPS I realize this is a lot of steps, and it may get confusing at times (actually, I guarantee it), but if you are a seeker like me, you'll have the patience to get there. I humbly await your arrival.

Huh, cool idea. I'll have to check this out when my gaming rig is back in working order. Planted a seed of possibility for making something in Minecraft too... fun times.

I suspect it will be a bit less curvy in minecraft. ;-)

No clue. I haven't used second life in at least 10 years. I don't know if anyone has used it recently.

Apologies this temple is in the online myst game. I misspoke. In any case I don't have time for gaming like that but as long as that games exists this location likely exists.

I never got into these games. Second Life, Myst.. I tried. Best I ever did was ToonTown online. hahahahah. I did try The Old Republic for a while, but I just couldn't find the appeal. Wasn't for me.

I have played final fantasy online back in 2004/5, but at some point I needed to spend that time on my grad school studies instead. I really enjoyed it, but it takes away from real life and relationships. Sometimes I miss playing that game honestly, but with a business to build and a kid there's no way I have time for anything. I have games on my phone which I play too much as it is.
