This is the fourth of twelve journals written by Yeesha that were scattered around the upper part of Descent in 2005 while Dr. Watson took the Quest. This one could be found near the door leading to the Great Shaft itself. It continues the history of her family where her previous one left off, recounting the events portrayed in Riven: The Sequel to Myst.


The stranger, the friend, returned again to help Father save Mother. Imagine - a stranger - traveling to Riven - risking all, asking for nothing. I think of humility, thinking more of others.

Humility: prisoners are freed by nothing more, and nothing less.

Gehn, my Grandfather, my heritage, that monster who thought himself a god, was once again imprisoned. Perhaps he still rules that desolate, empty, and dead place, riven by the pride and bitterness of his own heart. But more likely he is in another desolate, empty, dead place, where there is weeping. I hope he is miserable. I cannot forgive him for what he did. It eats at my heart.

I hate him, because I have his same desires.

Mother and Father came again together to the refuge - to Myst island. But it was only a shell, a place to exist - a fallen place - torn apart by pride just as the great D'ni city was.

Just as I am. Torn.

What is a stranger? Someone who is not me? Yet sometimes I feel like a stranger to myself. I become two. One who I know, and one who I do not. Where does this other one come from? Which one is me?
