Riven: The Sequel to Myst

"It is a harsh and desolate Age - but is nonetheless well suited for my purposes, and so I have designated it my 233rd."

Gehn's 233rd Age (D'nisev 98, sev [9|8], meaning 'Age 233') was the first successful Age he wrote to escape his imprisonment on Riven. It was also the last Age Gehn successfully wrote before his imprisonment in the D'ni Trap Book.

The main part of the Age is made up large rock spires. The conditions of Age 233 were harsh, as it was normally very hot and rained very little. The Age's oceans are highly acidic, and evidently at some point in the past suddenly receded, creating the unusual 'mushroom' shapes of the spires.

Gehn's Lab[edit]

The most notable featured on 233 was the office area that Gehn built. A large rain water collector was built on the roof to catch as much of the scarce rain water as possible. The Age's link-in spot was located at the very center of the lab with a cage built around it to trap any unwanted visitors. Five Linking books, each leading to one of the Riven islands, were placed on pedestals surrounding the cage to allow visitors to return to Riven, although they required power from a small furnace that Gehn could turn on or off. Other points of interest on the main floor included a large door leading to the outside, and Gehn's desk where he presumably wrote most of Age 234. A Cannen which he recorded himself playing his Maral-obe could be found near the ladder leading into his personal quarters.

Below the main floor was a small room which contained Gehn's bed, a wash basin, and an imager containing a recording from his late wife Keta. His Maral-obe and journal could also be found here.
