Despite being a more-primitive game than other entries in the series, Myst still has a few physical props.

Myst Book[edit | edit source]

This is a Harper's New Monthly Magazine, volume LIV, Dec 1876 to May, 1877, published in 1877.[1]

Unfortunately, after decades of use, the book has deteriorated to the point where it can no longer be used in any physical capacity, although the design was used as the basis for the Myst 25th Anniversary collection box.

Riven Descriptive Book[edit | edit source]

This is a 1950s-era Webster's Unified Dictionary and Encyclopedia, modified by taking off the gold cover text with solvent, but leaving the shield-and-sprig decor and adding corner accents, and the circular D'ni numeral "5" symbol that is associated with the game, as well as a black rectangle on the first page representing the linking panel. Images from Cyan's Cho Archives also show that prompts for Rand Miller's script were written on pages in the book.
