    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.

    Hints
    Part 1
    Phase 1
    The dechipering key is a complete sentence, commas and periods included.
    Locate the origin of the quote
    Locate the origin of the logo
    The quote refers to something misplaced.
    Do you see anything that doest match in what you have found?
    Keep in mind the origin of the quote
    Note the format xx:xx
    Keep in mind we are the BLACK Watchmen NOT the WHITE Watchmen
    Phase 2
    Keep in mind what the mission is asking for

    Part 2
    Phase 1
    Googling "the second innocent" gives you the person you are looking for
    There was a famous order contemporary to this person
    It was an order of knights
    This person gave that order a "gift" (aka privilege)
    Phase 2

    The further down these hints you go, the easier it becomes. So if you just want a nudge, don't go past 2.1.

    That's an interesting quote. I wonder where it comes from?
    That eagle also looks familiar. Like it's been used elsewhere. But...it's a bit different somehow. Hmm...
    If you want to fly like an eagle, you'd probably need some wings. Wings are pretty important like that.
    Wait a second, that's an eagle, not some kinda blackbird. What's with those feathers!?
    Counting feathers is one of my favourite pastimes.
    Well, that and looking up pairs of numbers as bible passages.

    WARNING! THIS CONTAINS THE ANSWER!

    Per usual, I live streamed solving the answers with members of the community in my chat. I talk through my thought process. If you want to watch it then do so. The answer is near the end, so if you want to watch early parts to see my process for hints...or wrong direction then do so.

    Mission 13 Part 1 - 1 Hour 3 Minutes
    Mission 13 Part 2 - 13 Minutes

    NOTE: The stream is split into 2 parts because of a BSOD crash.

    And for the answer input, don't do like me and forget the .html suffix or you'll headbang on the answer for nothing while you actually found it.

    Hey @Zerosh ... that link you have in spoiler 5 for part 2 is broken... all it pulls up is an error 404: Page not found. Any suggestions?

    There are plenty of hints in these threads, have you checked them? I made it to hint 5 (part 1) by myself, more or less, but I did need hint 6, even though it's pretty obvious once you notice.

    Man, I'm burning my eyes counting feathers!

    Man, it had to be the King James version!!!

    I'm stuck on this one, part 1 in particular.
    I have no clue on how to find the encryption key, so that I can decipher the message.

    theres a lot of clues hidden in the file:
    for starters; you could look at the eagle you'll notice theres some things 'off'/not quiet right about it. if you dont see it at first, try to look for it on google, and then reverse image search the thing
    have you seen the readable text at the bottom? i wonder where that could have been from....
    and one thing thats been said before: you might want to count somethings

    have you noticed the url of the website you're on?

    why not put your answer in there (dont forget to add .html to it)

    I cant get past part 1
    I found that the quote in the file is from king James's bible. And when I counted the feathers the eagle had 27 feathers on each wing, so I took passage 27:27 from king James's bible which is "And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens." I tried that as the decryption password but it didn't work.
    Am I even on the right track or am I missing something?

    I also found http//slimedaughter.com/games/twine/temple/ but that website seems irrelevant

    youre on the right track, but not there yet
    you only need to count specific feathers
