"A desolate age with a beauty that is quite different than I had expected or imagined."

Rime is an Age written by Atrus while living on Myst Island. A frigid wasteland, the conditions were vital in order to house the Crystal Viewer. The main island of Rime is a large icy mountain surrounded by frigid water. Atrus constructed a small building near the mountain, along with an observation tower at its peak. The room housing the crystal viewer is deep within the mountain.


The main reason Atrus wrote Rime was so he could make a Crystal Viewer to see Riven, as the descriptive book's linking panel was so distorted, to make sure Gehn was still trapped. Sirrus helped his father bring some needed machinery from Selenitic and they dug a tunnel deep into the heart of the mountain.

At one point, Catherine visited Rime to help Atrus find Riven's crystal combination.

After the Stranger freed Atrus from K'veer in 9462 DE (1806 CE), Atrus allowed them access to Rime.

Later, he used the viewer to look in on his sons' Prison Ages to see if they were still alive, though it hardly showed anything. He then rebuilt the machine in Tomahna, where he could use it more easily.

In 9480 DE (1824 CE), when the stranger visited Tomahna to help Atrus decide whether to free his sons, a blowout caused him to have to link to Rime to get some more crystals for the viewer. When he linked to Rime, he was caught in an electromagnetic storm and could not return to Tomahna. While he was gone, Sirrus broke out of his imprisonment on Spire and kidnapped Yeesha.

Later, Atrus was finally able to link back and the Age was presumably abandoned forever.


The main part of the Age is made up of several mountainous islands covered in snow. Despite the harsh conditions, life still thrives beneath the sea. A large peak dominates the main island and Atrus has constructed a series of tunnels that go through the island.
