    Subject: Backup Required

    A few months back, I submitted a report regarding the Ingress Conflict and the dangers it could present to mankind (https://forums.aliceandsmith.com/threads/report-on-the-ingress-conflict-should-we-be-concerned.1477/). I have been passively monitoring the Resistance from within their ranks, so far my cover remains intact.

    I embedded myself within their ranks because my initial observations have led me to see their goals as similar to our own, protecting humanity from a paranormal threat. Now, after a few facts have made themselves known, I see that this is not the case. If left unchecked, the actions of the Enlightened and Resistance will either leave humanity enslaved to an outside force, or the victims of an inter-dimensional war.

    One thing is clear: I am in way over my head. I am requesting the help of any available agents to investigate this conflict, the dangers it can present, as well as possible solutions. This conflict has been waged in the shadows for years, and has an extensive history as a result. We need Scientists to study this conflict and analyze any intel they find. Any available Spies should infiltrate either the Enlightened or Resistance, and gather as much intel as possible on the organizations as well as nearby XM Portals and Control Fields. It may also help to have Soldiers on standby, in case if heavy field work is required. In any case, all agents involved in this investigation should download the Ingress app in order to conduct field operations.

    I plan on submitting reports on anything of interest to this thread. I encourage everyone else involved to do the same.

    Stay Vigilant,

    Agent Lone Wolf

    As a Cybertech, I can research this phenomenon and other events linked to it to see what we can do to prevent this endgame scenario. I believe that the game has a database itself that I can look into and find info on anything pertaining to the conflict. I will keep you posted.
    I have recently rejoined the game myself (M1ch3langell0, Enlightened) and discovered a rather creepy message from an "Acolyte of Roland Jarvis." Needless to say, I am quite disturbed by it. I agree that we need to end this conflict soon before something terrible happens

    Glad to have you on onboard Agent Wo1fsBan3. Good to have a set of eyes on the Enlightened.

    It has been some time since I reported in. I found the following report sitting in my case files, unfinished. I managed to find an opportunity to break from my student work and finish this report. It is unknown how often I will be able to submit my findings (I still have some work to do regarding the aftermath of OPAL 5). I also would like to take this opportunity to call on any available agents to report in to this thread if they wish to aid in this investigation. And now, my report:

    Subject: ADA

    ADA (A Detection Algorithm) is a high level asset within the Resistance. Originally an AI created to aid in the development of the Niantic Project (which seems to be the catalyst of this conflict), she has evolved overtime. When the NIA (a top secret US Government agency commissioned to study Exotic Matter) threatened to shut down the Niantic Project, she managed to escape. Afterwards, she somehow managed to merge with the mind of Klue, another Resistance asset. Though it is unknown how exactly ADA managed to do this, I suspect it has something to do with a Glyph Sequence that ADA showed Klue.


    Since then, ADA has been advancing her agenda of merging human minds with AI. I have uncovered a few transmissions of conversations between ADA and Klue. From what I can tell, this occurred during a series of XM Anomalies known as Intertius.




    Eventually, the Acolyte and Roland Jarvis (both are high level Enlightened assets, though my intel on them is limited) found a way to terminate ADA by the end of a series of Anomalies known as Aegis Nova. I have a feeling that Resistance agents allowed her to be terminated after learning of her agenda. A member of the Resistance known as Jahan tried to rally agents to stop the termination, but ultimately failed.

    Shortly after the events of Aegis Nova, a group of Resistance Agents emerged calling themselves the “New Wave” Resistance. They had one single goal: Not just to revive ADA but make her stronger than before. To do this, they first salvaged fragments of ADA’s code from after Aegis and implanted it into their bodies using biohacks. During the Anomaly known Via Lux, the Resistance emerged victorious, and managed to revive ADA.


    Days after Via Lux ended, a written story from Howard Craft (the pseudonym HP Lovecraft used to publish a series of stories after Howard’s death that was seemingly influenced by XM) showcased a mysterious ritual taking place…and at the center of the ritual was ADA.

    It is possible that ADA’s revival might be tied to a mysterious weapon known as “Tecthullu”. It is my understanding that this was the focus of the Anomaly known as Via Noir. Unfortunately, I have little intel regarding this Anomaly.

    [END REPORT]

    That's all I have for now. I will continue to passively monitor this conflict, and report back when I can.

    Stay Vigilant,

    Agent Lone Wolf

    Agent Jimbo reporting in.

    I've been more or less following the Niantic Project since its beginnings, hidden among the ranks of Resistance agents. During the last year, I was present on the ground at various Anomaly Sites (places which temporarily exhibit anomalous Exotic Matter activity).
    During Via Noir Anomaly, I was present in Rome, and I think I can fill in some intel gaps:

    Leading up to the event, investigation revealed that man known as Oliver Lynton-Wolfe is trying to build the "Tecthulhu" machine, and that his effort is nearing completion.
    During the Anomaly, Resistance and Enlightened agents fought for the control of this machine.
    Little is known of its exact structure and function, but some sources claim it is highly advanced technology, both organic and synthetic. It may have connections to many older secret projects like Die Glocke, and some groups in the past have tried to build a machine like this, but the results of their efforts are not known.

    Oliver Lynton-Wolfe’s plan to activate his machine has failed - thanks to the actions of all agents, urged by Dr. Devra Bogdanovich, who expressed great concern at so much power in the hands of one, emotionally unstable man. Enlightened faction prevailed and found the Lynton-Wolfe's lab, then went to work analyzing what remained of his work.
    Here you can see his reaction after the destruction of the machine:



    "Where there was one, there will be many"- quite possibly the "Tecthulhu" was not truly destroyed and will emerge in some form again...

    Some time later, leaked conversations began to emerge about the history of the Niantic Project at CERN between Jay Phillips (former NIA agent and its current director) and the government. This means more and more people and organizations are becoming aware of Exotic Matter and its implications, which can be interesting...
    Most of these conversations revolved around Magnuses (groups of Exotic Matter sensitives, which have been created throughout the history) consisting of 13 Archetypes (Catalyst, Alchemist, Dreamer, Explorer, ...). The group working at Niantic Project at CERN is one of those Magnuses, each researcher (and even ADA) representing one Archetype. These groups are thought to have great influence on the era they form in.

    Most recently, an event is planned to take place in the forests of Northern California, called Magnus Reawakens. From its description:
    A plan emerged. A plan for a new kind of device, one that could tap into the XM network and reveal the state of a Portal for all to see.

    Selected teams of agents will be given access to one of 13 Tecthulhu modules based on Lynton-Wolfe’s Tecthulhu -- a specialized modification of the Ingress Scanner that can be used to bring an interactive, living Portal to life.

    Seems like we have not heard the last of the mysterious Tecthulhu machine. I will continue to monitor the situation as it develops.

    End of report.
