Mission #3 - Agent Silverfox's Training Mission Assistance

Discussion in 'Archived Missions' started by Silverfox, Jun 27, 2015.

    Silverfox Senior Agent

    Alright potential Agents. HQ has received your request for assistance. This is Silverfox from the OWL division. I've been asked to take time away from my research to do what I can to guide our new agents in their training. Now, I know several of you want me to just tell you the answer so you can become full agents.

    If you think that, then start walking down the mile of shame because that is not what I am here for. My job is to give you a small nudge to help you on your training mission. We are one. We work together so when discussing this mission, I will supply three hints. It is up to you if you want to use one or all three. Do not use these unless you are so blocked that you are on the verge of washing out of the program.

    We will assume you passed the first two missions as they are the toolbox you need for the training mission.

    Here we go Agents in discussing your first mission.

    Nudge 1:
    Remember, this mission is the usage of the skills you learned in the first two missions. Do any of the photos have something that would be like the first two missions?

    Nudge 2:
    Sometimes you will have to combine two pieces of info together to get the completed answer.

    Nudge 3:
    Ciphering is part of your training. Research is the other. Who would want the item you discovered?

    If you still need guidance, Agents, then use the Call for Help to let other Agents contact you. I will continue to check in with nudges to aid along the way but remember that these are for a last resort.

    Edit by @Zerosh
    Added personal hints and some guidelines. Thanks to agent @Silverfox who made the thread in the first place.

    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.

    Part 1
    Phase 1
    PHOTO ID #1040
    Phase 2
    Cipher Manuscripts
    Who originaly owned the item that is being auctioned?
    Remember that you are being asked for a culprit

    I never had any difficulty with any of the six current missions, but I want to compliment your good work. I think those tips are going to be useful to people who are stuck.

    Thanks. I noticed some of the same questions being asked but I wanted to be sure the nudges didn't simply give the answer.

    Morning chaps.

    Hit a snag with the final training mission.
    I've been tasked to investigate a missing antiques dealer in Chicago.
    I'm not sure how to gain access to the archive or the evidence provided within.
    Any help will be much appreciated.

    The archive link has been provided already in mission 2 and should be in the notes for mission 3.


    Look over the documents and report your findings here if necessary.

    EDIT: Agent @Silverfox has provided some helpful tips in case you have trouble progressing. The thread can be found HERE

    Dear Agents and supervisors, @Silverfox,

    Thank you for the help given by this classified information, yes I confess I opened all the spoil links, and further more I don't know yet if I will succeed the mission ...

    WHY ? because i'm french speaker and if i succeed by myself all the spoils except the last one, it's simply because i don't yet fully understand the meaning of the "Target" word.

    Now I Know that this word could have a specific meaning, i'm sure i will succeed.

    Truly yours

    more than one of us "native" speakers have driven ourselves (and some senior agents) to the brink of sanity. Often on the simplest of tasks, so do not worry about it. YOU will succeed.

    Well I've tried for hours to figure this out.
    I have a website which by looking at it seems alot of others have been there too.
    I have a code which i searched on the site and it looks like alot of others have done that too.

    What I dont have are any answers!!!
    Ive looked at your hints above and tbh i already have all of that except for the name!!
    I tried using the chat in game but its not working. It has a padlock on it.
    Can anyone please help as this is driving me nuts.

    EDIT: I got help from IRC. Don't look at the search function. The search function is misleading because so many of us have uploaded confusing things, and it won't get you where you need to go.

    Perhaps you're not meant to use the string to search with? :)
    If I want to send someone a package, just writing the "country" on the package won't do - I need to be more specific - and couple the country with a more specific designator.

    Oh dear...I went very far before trying what was in front of me...Sometimes it is the simple things.

    I swear I've got the right organization but it's not right? I did some web searching came up with a group, typed it in, but it's wrong...

    I feel as though I am missing something.
    I have checked the hints to make sure that I have everything right but is there something else I'm just not getting?
    I found the hex code and the encoded website within photo #1040. Unless I didn't decode them properly, what's my next step?

    I got the answer, but only by following the hints from Silverfox. Very frustrating.

    Here's what I did:
    1. Looked at picture 1040
    2. Went to http://www.asciitohex.com/
    3. Typed in jjj.cnfgrova.pbz into ROT13 as it looked like a website. I got www.pastebin.com
    4. Typed in 4a 67 57 32 72 39 41 65 into Hexadecimal. I got JgW2r9Ae
    5. Went to www.pastebin.com/JgW2r9Ae - nothing
    6. Frustrated, I followed Silverfox's hints and googled 'Cypher Manuscripts' - got the answer (but I don't know how I could have got there on my own). As I said, very frustrating...
    7. I went to Youtube for the walkthrough and he did the same steps as me:

    Conclusion: The file has been deleted from pastebin. NOT COOL

    I would really like to know how could I have come to conclusion about
    Cipher Manuscripts
    As I just couldn't find connection!
  19. codex-13

    codex-13 Senior Agent

    If you go to the wikipedia page about these manuscripts, you'll notice there is a particular organization that is associated with them... One that would probably do some shady stuff to get them back.

    No I mean why would I even look for the
    Cipher Manuscripts

    from the pictures given.

    Thank you!
