    For the sake of maintaining overview, I'll add each 'finished' section into spoiler tags:
    Also, my apologies for the occasional odd spoiler tag - forums doesn't like too many of them in the same post. Will do my best to keep it to a minimum.

    Phase 1:
    Blind Brotherhood Letter:
    Appears there are intentional spelling mistakes in each section.
    Google Doc: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1bNdm1BaOncBAEx9WbHDAGZ2MV56ajxLs_IXoi0lcAlQ/edit

    Original: ‘Scoală-te, sabie, asupra păstorului Meu şi asupra omului care îmi este tovarăş! zice Domnul oştirilor. Loveşte pe păstor, şi se vor risipi oile!’ Şi Îmi voi întoarce mâna spre cei mici.
    Briefing: Scoala-te, sabie, asupra partorului Meu, si asupru omului care imi este covaras! zice Domnul ostirilor. Loveste te pastor, si se vir risipi oile! Si imi voi intoarco mina spre cei nici

    Second is Swedish, quoting Book of Judges 2:14
    Original: upptändes HERRENS vrede mot i Israel, och han gav dem i plundrares hand, och dessa utplundrade dem; han sålde dem i deras fienders hand där runt omkring, så att de icke mer kunde stå emot sina fiender.

    --> "builder"

    Third is Welsh, quoting Zephania 1:3 [Smilia]
    Original: Distrywiaf ddyn ac anifail; distrywiaf adar yr awyr, a physgod y mor; a’r tramgwyddiadau ynghyd a’r annuwiolion; a thorraf ymaith ddyn oddi ar wyneb y ddaear, medd yr ARGLWYDD.

    Phase 3:
    1. Action required:
    Perform communication ritual to warn the dead not to rise under the command of Lauviah [Subject H2DL3K.]

    2. Background:
    Lauviah [Subject H2DL3K], a former member of the inner circle of the secret society known as the Blind Brotherhood, stole their prized possession, the Liber Juratus Honorii, a powerful book of magic written by Honorius of Thebes.

    3. Update:
    Our agents uncovered evidence that Subject H2DL3K plans to use a necromancy ritual after midnight on 31/10/15, in London, UK, to gather the forces of the dead to help him wage a crusade against the current leadership of the Blind Brothership and society at large.

    We have informed the Brotherhood of Subject H2DL3K’s plans, and they have provided us with a clear means of halting his ritual. We must warn the dead not heed his command.

    4. Recommendation:
    (a) Perform the the communication ritual [the instructions are under Archive call number AK3G57] at sunset on 31/10/15 in your local area of operations. Instructions on crafting a paper vessel can be found here [http://goo.gl/Yx0iGS]

    (b) Send photographic evidence of the ritual to Dispatch [[email protected]].

    (c) Await further instructions from Dispatch. We will send regular updates via twitter and the IRC as more rituals are performed.

    For ideas towards the Cryptobin, we have:
    • Numbers for bible verses lead to password, either just straight up as numbers, or translated to letters.
    • Spelling mistakes lead to password, either via the individual letters, or the words that are misspelled.

    I'll update this with more ideas as they come.

    Verse numbers do not work as password or in ASCII to Hex.

    So just a short update on what we managed to do on the IRC:

    - We noticed each passage had spelling mistakes in them.
    - Noting down these mistakes, we got "RUCTIEIN" "BUILDER" "ARDYEST" "THEWISE" "HADNEZZ" and "OFNEBUC"
    - We played around with these trying to get them in order. Nikel pointed out two made "Of Nebuchadnezzar" and mentioned "destruction".
    - I pieced together the final thing: "The wise builder of Nebuchadnezzar's destruction"
    - After researching, I found Nebuchadnezzar destroyed Solomon's Temple.
    - The key to the cryptobin was Solomon.

    Brothers, I now control His word. The remaining Inner Circle is powerless without it. Join me and we shall use His wisdom to guide and unite all the Lord’s children. My message will play for eleven seconds across the world for all our Brothers to see and hear. Prepare yourselves at the eleventh minute of the eleventh hour in the evening, on the eleventh channel, on the day of the feast of St Narcissus. Come together across the globe and heed my call.

    Got a reply from Dispatch:

    Man, you guys are quick. Curse you timezones, making me miss all the fun.

    As for the next one, I don't have TV. :/ Time to visit the girlfriend I think.

    I've clarified with dispatch, any means of watching your local channel 11 and recording will work, on a TV or livestream. If you don't have a TV check to see if livestream is an option.

    What is 'local channel 11' ? Europe doesn't use numbered channels.

    Is there a fixed band/frequency for Channel 11? Maybe I can find out what would have been Channel 11.... :)

    Eidt: Ah...

    Channel 11 corresponds to 198-204 MHz on the VHF Band III

    ... Which seems not be in use here, though I've seen lists with other frequencies..... I hope it's ok to pick whatever I have stored at preset 11 :D

    Who should I be following on Twitter to get the scheduled update on twitter at 14:00 utc after I upload my recording?
  13. MidDipper

    MidDipper Division-79

    Not on twitter, hop on the IRC at that time(14:00 UTC 10/30). Someone will likely post a transcript here if you can't make it.

    I had planned to do this during the Season 2 Live Events, but I guess I can make a start on this one!
    Regular update/recap videos throughout the Mission to help Agents catch up (or for future players to get an overview of what the Live Events are like).

    Here's the first one for Operation Blindangel

    you should try recording with a light source that isn't your computer screen.

    Sent my recording of Channel 11 to Dispatch and got this as a reply.

    Transmission from Denver area channel 11 sent in to Dispatch. I imagine 20 different stations is an easily obtainable number.

    Eleven confirmed and nine more missing. Just one hour for debriefing, are we too close to deadline for success?

    Hope we are not.
