    CAC65EF received this code, I'm gonna drop it here in case one of you haven't already gotten the same sequence

    I feel like the image behind the cypher wheel might be a historical document of some sort. Also did anyone notice that something is supposed to happen tomorrow at 11:30pm UTC... Might want to look into this.....

    The strike team is preparing to crash the meeting at 11:30pm UTC tomorrow, so we've got that covered.

    As far as the document goes, I believe someone mentioned the Voynich Manuscript at one point, but the text doesn't match. Actually given that we can see part of a couple words, abyss(al) (e)nergy, and the title containing (d)well and (aby)ss, I'm inclined to believe this is an original document by the church, possibly inspired by the Voynich Manuscript, given the botanical picture forming on the right.

    EDIT:
    Also, if you want a better picture of the cryptogram at this point, here you go:

    We're up to 179 fragments, or 17.5% of the image.

    I've gone back over the thread since the deciphering method was cracked, hoping to pick up some extra grid pieces left behind by agents who either left their ciphertext here for others to solve or didn't enter their plaintext into Cryptography. Fortunately/unfortunately, all of the code segments (except the most recent by Agent Windir, which I took care of) have been properly decoded and entered into the Cryptography page. So much for low-hanging fruit! We really need more agents' help.

    Whoa, major progress being made just now. I'm gonna try and find some more info on it.

    I could be wrong but I think that the title reads "Of the banishment of the dwellers of the abyss" does this mean anything to anyone?

    Edit: Never mind it defiantly says that.

    New email from dispatch
    WARNING

    Our agency has allocated additional resources to speed up the decryption of the cult transmission. You have been selected to be part of the initial group of Codebreaker Team Alpha, a new task force for this mission. Based on your high amount of activity in previous code breaking efforts you should have no trouble with these actions. Our analysts have extracted the codes that are still encrypted:
    http://pastebin.com/RdCk2bHF

    Decrypted text needs to be submitted to our Data Composition Service here:
    http://cryptography.blackwatchmen.com/

    We ask you to enlist the help of your fellow agents via IRC or online forums and grow the task force. We need as many active agents joining the code breaking effort as we can get.

    Read the prepared guide for Cipher Wheel Encryption/Decryption here: http://archive.blackwatchmen.com/search/99BBF2

    The secret key used to decrypt codes with the cipher wheel as well as additional instructions can be found below:
    SECRET KEY: 2R, 5L, 3L, 1R, 4R, 2L, 4L
    Instructions: http://i.imgur.com/7a1PBOV.jpg

    Good luck agent, decryption of the Church of the Dark Sun document is of critical importance.

    So uh...
    Anyone else thinking we may be dealing with a rift here?

    "Banishment of the Dweller of the Abyss"? Doesn't that sound like they're opening up said abyss and pulling shit out?

    Maybe we should warn the strike team.
