Age

From MYSTAges
Jump to: navigation, search

An Age (D'nisev, sev) is a parallel universe that the Ronay, along with their descendants the D'ni, could visit by writing Descriptive Books and Linking Books leading to the Age.

Many D'ni believed that Yahvo created the Terokh Jeruth, or "Great Tree of Possibilities." The Tree has an infinite number of leaves, each leaf representing an Age.

The main task of the Guild of Writers was to write links to Ages, though many upper-class D'ni also knew how to write. Those who did not have the opportunity to learn to write Ages could visit the Ages whose books were kept in the Common Libraries.

Types of Ages[edit]

Ages written by the D'ni were often specialised for a particular purpose, such as producing food, or storing Linking Books for easy access.

Functionality[edit]

Ownership[edit]

  • Guild Age: an Age that was owned and used by one of the Guilds.
  • Private Age: an Age written for private use by a person or family. Also known as Personal Ages. Ages owned by families are also known as Family Ages.
  • Public Age: an Age which was publicly available in a Common Library or the Nexus, for the general D'ni public to enjoy.

Other terms[edit]

  • Illicit Age: Ages that went against the laws of the Guild of Writers, and hence were illegal in D'ni. From 4305 DE (3352–3351 BCE) onwards, the writing or trading of illicit Ages was punishable by permanent imprisonment on a solitary Prison Age.
  • Inhabited Age: any Age that has a civilization living in it. In the context of the D'ni Civilization, the term was generally used to describe an Age which already had a civilization living there before a link was written there.
  • Instance: an apparent duplicate or near-duplicate of another Age, created by the Bahro or Yeesha and usually linked to via a Bahro Stone.
