    Use this thread to discuss theories and keep track of clues and hints.
    Also, please post here the link to any document (or similar) created to cooperate on the mission.
    Meanwhile I'll try to keep this post updated with useful info and hints.
    Note: It's recomended to download all images and files in order to work with less difficulty.

    Hints
    Part 1
    All you need is in the image
    Pay attention to unusual marks

    Part 2
    All you need is in the image
    Pay attention to small details

    Part 1 took me much longer than it should have, until I realized
    it's only asking for half of the available information and there's a part 2 that asks for the other half
    .

    Yes, Training Mission #1 has two answers to find and each one is required to be entered in their relevant, separate parts.

    Thanks a lot Halforc80, definately loving The Black Watchmen. Reminds me of The Stone, which I was not able to finish...

    Welcome to the Black Watchmen!

    We're gonna get you trained up and ready to begin.
    If you've needed to reach out for help already, don't worry.
    Agents help each other out, and getting started can be a bit of a whirlwind.

    For some missions, I've documented some hints at my problem solving method.
    They will help get you in the right frame of mind to move forward.

    Nudgery

    I've tried to write this in such a way that you can get progressively stronger hints.
    Working it out yourself is the fun part, and where you really learn.
    Try the little nudges before moving on to the big ones.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    1-1.1 Hidden Meaning

    Nudge:
    When you want to convey that a certain piece of text has extra meaning, you have some formatting options.
    Italicizing and making text Bold are common options - but they aren't the only way.

    For this section, we only need to look at the left half of the postcard.

    Slightly Bigger Nudge
    If you are an agent in the field, and you have found the position of your objective, what might you say to your superiors?


    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    1-1.2 Look Closer

    Nudge:
    We looked at the left half of the postcard in 1.1 - where should we look now?

    Bigger Nudge:
    Mail coming from Hawaii is usually flown by air. Investigate the postmark.
