Aquila was a member of the MYST community from the time of Riven's release,[1] creating Aquila's Riven Pages, participating in CyanChat, The Riven Lyst and Rivenguild. When the latter two ended, long time Lyster Lehsa started "The Lyst" and Aquila created and administered the website for it.[2] A question asked by Aquila on the Riven Lyst, "What is Rubber Gut?" is on a RAWA page of Cyan's website. Aquila also participated in the Uru Live Beta (Choru) & Prologue. In October, 2005, he was interviewed by Inside Mac Games for the article, "Myst Uber Fan Interviewed" (WM). Aquila was active in the Myst/Uru community right up until his unexpected death.
