1[[quoteright:256:]]˛˛''Myst V: End of Ages'' is the sixth game in the ''VideoGame/{{Myst}}'' series, and the final one. It was developed by Cyan Worlds, published by Creator/{{Ubisoft}}, released in 2005, and re-released on Website/GOGDotCom and UsefulNotes/{{Steam}} in 2012.˛˛Taking place sometime after ''Uru: Ages Beyond Myst'', the player controls another modern day character instead of the Stranger. The new character is tasked by Yeesha, daughter of Atrus and Catherine, with restoring the power of the D'ni. To do that you must unlock the power of the Tablet, which will allow the D'ni to control a SlaveRace known as the Bahro. To unlock the Tablet, the player has to travel to four Ages and collect four slates. Along the way the player is advised by Esher, another member of the D'ni, to not trust Yeesha.˛----˛!!Tropes in ''Myst V: End of Ages''˛* ArtifactTitle: Unlike the previous three numbered games, Myst Island does make an appearence, in [[spoiler:one of the bad endings]].˛* BaitAndSwitch: Atrus's final note at the beginning strongly suggests that he is at death's doorstep. Yeesha even says that "...his time has passed" to the player. [[spoiler:In a way, he is, but only in that he is very old, weak, and is now retired. He's actually just fine, and the "better place" that he goes to is actually Releeshahn, as seen in the good ending.]]˛* BeastlyBloodsports: Laki'ahn was originally a "sport" age, where the natives, known as the Kresh, would fight gladiatorially against shark-like sea creatures called Laki for the entertainment of a D'ni audience.˛* CoversAlwaysLie: A minor case since the cover seen in the page image implies that K'veer and Noloben are part of the same Age (though one could argue that it is more a case of ArtisticLicense and is not deliberately misleading).˛* DimensionalTraveler: Yeesha, the Bahro and Escher can all link at will. Escher gains the ability from a {{squick}}y source: he wears a Bahro skin over his shoulder.˛* ElementalPowers: The Bahro can alter Age states to bring about specified environmental changes. In particular, in this game they can waken underground geysers to heat up a frozen world, summon gale winds or rainclouds, and even greatly increase the passage of time. ˛* FarSideIsland: The endpoint of the age of Laki'Ahn is a tiny island some distance from the mainland. Treasures used to be kept there, and it's also where the Age's portion of the Keep is located.˛* FungusHumongous: Direbo˛* HubLevel: Direbo, once the bridge gates are unlocked, offers quick access to four parts of D'ni as well as the four quest ages.˛* GoBackToTheSource: [[spoiler:K'veer]].˛* InnBetweenTheWorlds: Direbo, a rest age that could be visited by travelers on the outskirts of D'ni.˛* MissionControlIsOffItsMeds: [[spoiler:Esher]].˛* PaletteSwap: The planet Todelmer orbits is a ringed, cloudless, colder recolor of Venus.˛* PerpetualStorm: [[spoiler: Myst Island has fallen under this after centuries of neglect.]]˛* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: The Bahro fear the snakes of Noloben.˛* SaveToken: Your camera, which saves the game every time you take a picture.˛* SlaveRace: The Bahro [[spoiler:until you free them.]]˛* SymbolDrawingInterface: The Bahro slates.˛* TimeSkip: The game takes place around 200 years after ''Revelation''.˛* TortureCellar: Escher's "lab" in Noloben, though the actual torture area is at ground level.˛* TreacherousAdvisor: [[spoiler:Esher is one. Yeesha as well, to a lesser extent; she doesn't deliberately mislead, but listening just to her side of the story may lead to mistakes]]
