Hey everyone, I thought it'd be neat to go back in time to see what the Myst fandom looked like between 1996 and 2003 in the earliest days of the internet. Here are a few links:
https://web.archive.org/web/19961101205 ... .myst.com/ Cyan's first website from Nov. 1996.
https://web.archive.org/web/20000301215 ... .myst.com/ Cyan's brief maroon website from 2000.
https://web.archive.org/web/20010201145 ... .myst.com/ Cyan's old site from around 2001. Personally I love the look of this site. Very dark and mysterious.
https://web.archive.org/web/19981206104 ... guild.com/ RivenGuild from 1998.
https://web.archive.org/web/19991013003 ... timate.cgi RiveGuild forums from 1999 before Myst III was announced.
https://web.archive.org/web/20000815235 ... timate.cgi RivenGuild from October 2000. RealMyst, Exile and Mudpie now have sections.
https://web.archive.org/web/20010604110 ... exile.html Myst III Exile official site from 2000.
https://web.archive.org/web/20030811182 ... home.shtml UruObsession from August 2003. Unfortunately MudpieObsession which ran from 2001 to 2002 was not archived.
Here are some fansites from 1998. Oh man this takes me back:
