    Make sure you have cookies turned on. Common issue with this mission.

    Kind of ironic that a DLC that focuses on computer security perils would run afoul of computer security measures. ;-)

    Did you actually ever get to the solution? I'm just as stuck as you are/were so I could use some help as well. Have been trying all sorts of look-ups with the list and the dates but I must be missing something somehow... Any help would be appreciated as always :)

    We're going to have to assemble this image ourselves.

    Grab 4 pens, or your favorite image editor and try to create the image.
    We have 4 textures, so use colors like Red, Green, Blue and Black to represent each texture.

    Guess at which number goes where, keeping the rotation of the star in mind. Put the appropriate number of dots at each point.



    Do you remember how to excuse your dear aunt Sally?

    What do our agents tell us in the document?
    What are we looking for? In what context is this object or entity found?
    Are there any words that are foreign to you in the document?



    B̖͎igger Final Nudge:
    Some of the star's lines have beehive pattern, some have cubes, some look like marble and some have cracks.



    PEMDAS

    Our "guardian" is commanded somehow, and is paired with a different being.
    Look for that being and it may lead you to our demon.


    Look for patterns in the star, you will make sense of it through trial and error.

    Each number only appears once, so it is a matter of filling in blanks.

    Are there any key terms in the documents you have access to?
    Locations? Disasters? Mythology?

    Ask your friend in the archive, via email. They will give you what you need to continue.



    When you arrive at the website you are recommended to go to, poke around until you see that the virus has been here as well.

    Something is different about this page - decrypt your steganography to find out what

    Try viewing the source of the page. That will allow you to see something more like what the virus is seeing.

    An "image author" isn't a photographer, but rather the author of a piece of literature you have been hinted at.

    (This really spooked me when I first found it because it was the coincidentally my computer's hostname)


    46 31 6e 34 6c 20 4e 75 64 39 33
    The author originally published the piece in question using a name other than the one on their birth certificate, and one different than how they are popularly remembered.


    Beware false paths! This author liked steganography, but their use of it is not relevant to this mission.

    TECHNICAL NOTE and common problem:
    Depending on your browser configuration, a MAJOR piece of this puzzle may not appear.
    Until you see the redundant phrase "No. #7" you are missing this piece. If you don't see it in your current browser, I guess we'll just have to adjust.

    Who are all of these people?
    They might have something in common with one another.

    Our answer is not a date, in any format.

    A message has been sent to you in a way that you have never seen before... you have seen it, right? If not, don't hide it, hold your mistake up.

    :
    They all share something that is completely certain.
    It is one of the 2 things that are certain, besides taxes.


    How many of them are there? How many people would you imagine would be on this list?
    Are there the same number of people on the list as you would expect?

    Have you looked for help in the archive? Check there.

    I thought I knew how many people were going to be on the list, but I can see that it's a lie.

    You could say the reaper has reached and touched these people's hands.

    Something is missing. Not a someONE, but a some THING.


    Combine your results so far with the writing on the wall into an online search.
    Once you have done that, you will think, "I can see where I am going."



    Bonus nudge for the truly lost:
    This is a VERY VERY big spoiler.

    Do not click it unless you are sure you can't move forward - and have asked for help.
    Like REALLY sure.

    Start a conversation with me and I'll give you a smaller hint.
    Clicking the spoiler tag one more time might spoil the brilliancy of this mission.

    THIS IS THE FINAL WARNING

    There is steganography in this nudge post..
    Look at every section of text after the final comma in each nudge in part 3 of this mission.

    This section does not count. There are no commas. The word "comma" doesn't count.
    But it's pretty close to finding out the truth about this whole campaign.

    Only two locations are mentioned in the file in the archive, agent Wheeler has nothing in the archive about any of these two locations, what do I do then?

    Don't know if you're still on this one, but the wording of the archive file might be tripping you up.

    The file in the archive doesn't actually mention any places, as Dahut morgen isn't a place. Try finding a place related to those words and seeing where that gets you

    Eventually I got it, but thanks anyway
