    Twitter response from Ted.
    Faun Landry: THEY KNOW AND SOON YOU WILL SEE! The Elders punish traitors who divulge secrets. Your family, your real identity, everything that has been important to you. Brother Arvakhac has uses for you, and not all of them will be pleasant. The Abyss isn't kind to liars and deceivers. You're just a sitting duck. A sacrificial lamb.

    Ted Benwall: I am certain that my identity has not been compromised, I can't be sure how long this will last though. I do have those close to me that I don't want hurt. I was planning to get out as soon as I got the proof I needed but this may prove to be even riskier than I thought. I've been receiving warnings from many people, I just don't know what to do anymore...

    Excellent. Maybe it'd be best to move into a more sympathetic approach, tone down troll stuff and send more sympathetic stuff and warnings. He seems to be responding quite well to that. We might be able to just scare him away from this whole thing.

    EDIT2: Submitted my code: 36B411D --> 1919244
    EDIT: My bad, the example was for ENcoding, while we are DEcoding.

    Ignore this post

    I see everyone shifting the characters the exact opposite of what I thought we were supposed to do.
    The example (http://archive.blackwatchmen.com/search/99BBF2) uses a cipher that starts with '1 right' and shifts a B to a C ( adding 1 ). The cipher we should use on the fragment we have received starts with '2 right', yet everyone is subtracting 2.

    Am I missing something or is everyone just copying from the guy before him?

    Made the same mistake. To encode a message, you have to shift the inner wheel, to decode it, the directions apply to the outer wheel.

    Just bringing this back. If you don't want to worry about encoding vs. decoding, or the wheel, just use this.

    Good to see. I guess now we wait for dispatch, and do the cryptograms. Will help more once I get back from work.

    Div66_Dispatch in the IRC - 20.30UTC 9/18/2015:

    We are requesting an update on the NIGHTFALL mission, please submit your status report.
    SET 6 has reported that Benwall is showing signs he is very close to becoming totally discouraged and going into hiding.
    Until we receive clear confirmation of his resolve to abandon the ritual, continue to pressure him.

    Dispatch, have we received anything through the Honeypot number yet?

    The sole communication received was regarding a key that unlocked the location of the ritual.
    We are unable to relay codes to other agents at this time, if this changes we will notify you immediately

    if he does go into hiding, do we have alternate information sources?

    We do not have alternate information sources, if agents see an opportunity to extract information from target they should take it.

    So what can we do now? Only continue to pressure Ted?

    The current objectives are to continue decryption of the cult transmission and complete the deception operation against Benwall to ensure we have effectively discouraged him from attending the ritual.
    We believe the decoded cult transmission will provide valuable insight into the Church and so it is of utmost importance that we obtain the data as soon as possible.

    Any way to reach other agents who have not decrypted?

    They cannot be reached at this time, we expect agents to enter this communication channel as they receive their codes and are seeing additional plaintext codes arrive in the forums.

    Should we be prepared to search around City Hall station in New York City tomorrow evening, or should we stay back and wait for other teams?

    If deployment from agents is required, we will notify active agents. Until then, do not deploy resources to the ritual location.

    I just got a message from benwall saying he's considering my offer earlier to work with me.
    Is there any sort of specific adress I should give him to mail to if he agrees to?

    We do not currently have an intel reception address to provide, we suggest playing into targets increasing paranoia and urge him to consider his family or friends.
    If we prepare an address, we will deliver it to you.

    To elaborate on Samurai's question, it seems Benwall is not only getting discouraged, he may want to go into hiding. Is there some resource or sanctuary we can/want to offer as further inducement?

    Involving our agency directly with Benwall by allocating resources may introduce a large amount of risk, we will investigate this possibility if target wishes to fully cooperate.

    We will deliver further mission updates as needed.
