    I'm surprised that no one else apparently had problems with this card, but I'm stuck on it for a while now. To recap, it's called "outside help", has a picture of an African (presumably Yoruba) shaman, and the text says "trusted methods of which he speaks, go beyond the technique".
    "he" is Jonathan Reeves, who helps Jocelyn by teaching her lucid dreaming, which "goes beyond" the Glasswick techinique (that didn't work massively well with her). Neither of those fits though, and I can't seem to find any reference to a particular African lucid dreaming technique that would either.
    Am I on the right track here at all?

    you should take a look at his tumbler, it could provide you some clues

    Have you
    thoroughly researched the Glasswick Technique online
    ?

    you mean it looks largely inconsequential tbh (and pretty unfair if it is indeed the intended game mechanic)

    Well I did look it up, but apparently not thoroughly enough. Thanks for the tip!

    no theres another one
    he'll give it to you if you email him

    did you know reeves also had an account in the old ahnayro forum? you might be able to find a clue in the lucid dreaming RP thread
    this was part of the ARG puzzle

    Ok that should give me enough to go on, thanks (still haven't found the exact answer though).
    This one seems like a big ARG bump compared to the rest of the game. So far it was mostly wikipedia-based.

    Looks like I'm still unable to progress:(
    I got the links to est and Mind Dynamics (both the now defunct original and mind-dynamic.com, which I'm guessing is fake), but there's still nothing there that would fit the text.
    I fear the answer is just too ARG-ey and far-fetched for me.

    yeah I got that address from his email already, looked through all pictures, read not-tobetruffled's links, but I still don't see anything that would fit. At this stage I can use a really blunt hint, possibly even a straight answer, since the puzzle is already spoiled beyond repair for me anyway, and I already opened almost everything else.

    Ok nevermind - I got it. Turns out it didn't even need any links, just the picture was enough. Not sure how it happened, I think I was trying to spell it wrong for some reason, and stopped when I didn't find a certain letter.

    ..aand looks like the game's finished now, although there's still an unopened isolated star-shaped hole, but nothing is interactive anymore.

    rumpelstiltskin I'm following you along but I've yet to get there - I'm not even convinced this whole forum isn't part of the game!

    What got you on the right path?

    game/reality does there need to be a difference, by the way one-iron-not-tobetruffled's tumblr account is not official game material it is my silly tumblr account i have not done much with in a long time-errr like ever... have fun living/err playing which ever sounds more appropriate

    Good to know! It's very hard to draw the line sometimes.

    For the record I figured it out - the idea that got me there was...
    Looking at the image on the card, and thinking of synonyms for what I saw
