    Greetings fellow agents.
    After finishing the Mother Russia DLC, Balamung and I (confirmed so far at least, more might /might have) have recieved an email with "Mother Russia: Epilogue" as its subject.
    Spoilers to follow. You were warned.
    The contents of the email were:

    Now, the numbers in the text link to a vimeo video that is protected by a password
    vimeo . com / 179579107
    Error Relay ID when translated from binary to text gives us this :
    When googled, it appears that tt0113568 is the IMDB indentifier for the first Ghost in the Shell movie
    When binary is googled directly, it displays the book Magnus Kryptogoria among the results

    The wall of text is a quote from H.P. Lovecraft's The Ultimate Horror Collection, in ROT13.
    When converted to text it gives us:
    It was dark when the galley passed betwixt the Basalt Pillars of the West and the sound of the ultimate cataract swelled portentous from ahead. And the spray of that cataract rose to obscure the stars, and the deck grew damp, and the vessel reeled in the surging current of the brink. 179579107 Then with a queer whistle and plunge the leap was taken, and Carter felt the terrors of nightmare as earth fell away and the great boat shot silent and comet-like into planetary space. Never before had he known what shapeless black things lurk and caper and flounder all through the aether, leering and grinning at such voyagers as may pass, and sometimes feeling about with slimy alive paws when some moving object excites their curiosity. These are the nameless larvae of the Other Gods, and like them are blind and without mind, and possessed of singular hungers and thirsts.
    In the text, the 2nd word written in bold is nyvir, or else alive.
    Alive is the password for accessing the video
    In the video we see what appears to be
    a little girl drawing something on a piece of paper, while saying the following:

    And then I was running in this house and it was part of the Sprawl. There were all these men with glass faces and they were playing. Mixing things together. So many different kinds but they didnt look like they were having fun, they werent smilling. I always smile when I play. Not like Grisha, he never looks like he's having fun. Then there was lots of snow, it was cold and I didnt like it. I just wanted to leave and go home. Go home and see Gwen, but I couldnt go. They wouldnt let me leave. Who's Gwen mommy? Why isnt she here? When is she coming back?
    The girl in the video is scribbling on a paper with a crayon something like this
    After pseudonecrosis pointed it out, the girl's drawing matches a word on the AMWOG Codebook
    The matching word is "HELP"
    Let the paranoia commence!

    I don't think this is intended, but :
    If you google the binary, you find the ARG video with the plague doctor mask guy

    So it appears the drawing in the video is straight out of our AMWOG codebook. "Help" is the plaintext.

    The girl talks in past tense as if speaking of a memory or telling a story to her mother. She apparently knows Gwen and Grisha. Was Msika pregnant? Also, do we know where Gwen is?

    Dead, I think. Go read the Santiak Chronicle comic.

    The rot-13 text is from Dreams of Terror and Death, just speculation-I'm thinking the child is recounting a dream she had. She doesn't know Msika, Gwen or Grisha except for a familiarity from some sort of ability. Now, if Msika is still at the sprawl...????

    Maybe she's an Overmind subject... Omicron maybe? She works with remote viewing and uses drawing/coloring as an outlet.

    I keep forgetting Omicron is so young.

    Now, I am just taking a guess, here but maybe, just maybe:
    I am guessing that the girl talking may be having some sort of vision. She says at one point she wanted to go home and see Gwen, and the next sentence is "Who's Gwen, mommy?" It's like she has two sides to her.

    I feel that the girl is a medium for communication for Agent Msika. It's like she's switching back and forth between what she herself would say, and what Agent Msika would say. Possible chance of psychic abilities, maybe an empath?

    Also...(just a theory of course)

    If you look at the trailer video of Ghost in the shell, there might be a link with that little girl. Narrative says : " It found a voice, now it needs a body" ......... " science fiction that takes you on a ride beyond the boundaries of cyber reality. You'll never trust computers again".

    Also :
    IMDB mentions a revised version of the same movie with this description : A hacker known as the Puppet Master is hunted by a female cyborg cop and her partner. This film is a revised version of Ghost in the Shell (1995).

    Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex is an awesome anime btw. That could also tie in to the girl due to
    the possibility that Msika's consciousness may have been uploaded to a computer. The fact that Msika was in a vegetative state may be due to her now being a husk of what she used to be. Maybe the girl is a cyborg? ;P

    If i put together everyone's thoughts and theories, plus some research, i come up with this theory :

    What if they were conducting more experiments than we knew of at "the sprawl" ? transfer one's consciousness, or at least memories, into another human being and have only partially succeeded ? the little girl talks about Grishka (memories), running in the snow (trying to escape), wanting to go home (when imprisoned/captured). So part of the little girl's consciousness is her own, and a subconsciousness part - a part with memories that could not be her own - could be Msika's ?

    If she was captured, they most certainly tried to interrogate her, and if she kept silence, they could definitely have tried something else to access her memories.

    If we look at Mind uploading (Whole brain emulation (WBE)) ( : "According to supporters, many of the tools and ideas needed to achieve mind uploading already exist or are currently under active development; however, they will admit that others are, as yet, very speculative, but still in the realm of engineering possibility." That would bring us pretty darn close to the my quote in my earlier reply "science fiction that takes you on a ride beyond the boundaries of cyber reality. You'll never trust computers again"
    That would be right in our alley of investigation.

    I just can't imagine all the intel they could get out of msika' memories if they succeeded even partially. I would advise changing some security codes and protocols, at least the ones Msika knew about. Relocation of relatives could be kept in mind too.

    So , with all these speculations, and if we happen to be right, and If we manage to find that little girl, the research site, the equipment and their research data, we could technically reverse the process... Obviously if Mishka is still alive somewhere, or conserved with cryogenics ...

    The reference found in the latest message received (Error-relay ID) to HP lovecraft could also be worrying.
    Once again, AMWOG could be crossing magic/supernatural with science.

    I also contacted Dispatch at 18:05 EST, not expecting any replies before tomorrow

    Came to a pretty close conclusion to yours :)

    Please let me know if Dispatch replies with anything worthwhile. I am kinda excited as to what we can possibly get out of this all. Maybe a new "Group 3003", from Operation BLINDANGEL?

    Unfortunately i don't know anything about anything related to a possible gorupe 3003 or anything similar, nor operation BLINDANGEL, i joined the Division only 2 weeks, but i will sure let you know if i receive anything.

    I just sent dispatch an e-mail as well. Hopefully they reply, and it's a whole new mission set in the future unlocked ;P

    Greetings Dispatch, Agent Kakuzen, here:

    I have gotten a disturbing transmission from other agents after completing their latest assignments against A.M.W.O.G with TF-MANTRA. We have been noticing strange anomalies in one of the videos hidden in the transmission.

    Password: alive

    For instance, the girl in the video says odd things. I will provide a transcript:

    "... and then I was running in this house, and it was part of The Sprawl, and there were all these men with glass faces, and they were all playing; mixing things together. So many different colors! But they didn't look like they were having fun; they weren't smiling! I always smile when I play, not like Grisha, he never looks like he's having fun. Then there was lots of snow. It was cold and I didn't like it, I just wanted to leave and go home. Go home and see Gwen. But I couldn't go. They wouldn't let me leave. Who's Gwen, mommy? Why isn't she here? When is she coming back?"

    Now, a few things strike me as odd, here. Apparently this girl is from The Sprawl, and was in contact with biochemists inside it? Apparently she knows Grisha, as well as Agent Msika's significant other, Gwendolyn. What I want to know though, is why she says "I just wanted to leave and go home; Go home and see Gwen." And then the next sentence she says is "Who's Gwen, mommy?"

    Why would she want to go home and see a person she has never met so badly? I think this may be a stretch, but I have a theory that Agent Msika may still be alive in a sense. Her body is still in tact, right? I feel that this girl may be a Black Project of A.M.W.O.G... She may be some sort of creation, where they transferred Agent Msika's consciousness into a different body. Is there any way we can find the location of this girl? If my theory is correct, she may have some sort of GPS tracking device on her person, as well as an RFID chip to identify her.

    Operation Blindangel was a live event for Halloween last year. Very fun event. There was a hidden picture of the Headless Horseman and a phone number hidden in that. If you called it, they had you e-mail dispatch with the code given to you in order to be added to a special live event list :)

    Probably nothing, but the Lovecraft story referenced here (The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath) was also referenced in
    the Ahnayro sandbox campaign.

    isnt this the same girl thats used in the trailer/opening scene for TBW?
    the one thats drawing the TBW logo.
    she doesnt say anything, but i think her laugh is the same
    ps while looking for this video, i discovered a 'hidden' archive file ^^
