The instant you link to Riven, you trigger a trap and become stuck in a booth behind bars, and lose your trap book after a nearby guard demands it. The guard in turn ends up being hit by a tranquilizer dart and falls asleep. A rebel scout takes the trap book, frees you, and runs off. Now, stuck in Riven without your trap book, you must regain the trap book and find a way to lead Gehn into it. With Gehn safely in the prison (and Cathrine free), you must then signal Atrus who will come with a linking book to bring everyone back home.

* CardboardPrison: [[spoiler: Both played straight and averted. After Catherine is fooled by Sirrus and Achenar into linking to Riven, both her and Gehn are imprisoned there because, barring the intervention of Atrus, there's no linking book to leave the age. However, by the time the events of the game are set in motion, both Catherine and Gehn have successfully written another functional age to seek refuge into from the impending collapse of Riven, even tho they are still trapped as much as before because the destruction of Riven would mean the loss of any descriptive book created there, and at point they would forever fall out of the reach of Atrus.]]

Added DiffLines:

* CrazyPrepared: Gehn prepares against people who might link into his Ages with special holding cages. There's the one you find yourself in at the beginning of the game, and there's also the one in Age 233.

* DevelopersForesight: Some of the details in the game can really go unnoticed. For example, on Village Island, knocking on the one accessible village door [[ArcNumber five times]] will rouse a response (albeit a frightened one) from the house's occupant.
** The combination to the telescope hatch is found [[spoiler: in Catherine's journal, which you pick up on Tay]], and if you use it and trigger the ending as soon as you get it, [[spoiler: Gehn shoots both you and Atrus]]. However, if you take that code back in time via an earlier saved game, another version of the ending is played where [[spoiler: nobody turns up.]]
*** The above method is however averted for the code to free Catherine, as the game only generates the code when you're backstage on Age 233 (and Gehn is already trapped).
