"We will reverently celebrate its opening as we honor the events of this week. How appropriate that the word "minkata" means "heavily scarred". May the scars of Minkata be a constant memorial of all we have lost."

Minkata (D'ni, meaning 'heavily scarred') is an Age written as a place for Surveyors to practice their skills in surveying, which would prove a challenge given the barren landscape of the Age.

Minkata was one of the Ages later found by the DRC during the second restoration. It was approved and released to explorers on May 24, 2007 CE.

Geography[edit]

The Age is a barren desert landscape filled with large flat rocks covering the ground. Some of these rocks are hollow and serve as the entrances to small rooms under the desert known as "kivas."

Located near the link-in point is a large structure which has a compass on top of it, which proves vital in locating the kivas using the clues found in the notebook in the Ae'gura Library. Several flags can also be found throughout the Age indicating how far away they are from the main structure.

Trivia[edit]

  • The sixth sparklie can be found in the second kiva, and a soccer ball can be found near the fourth kiva.
