The first easy case is truly easy.... provided you know search engine operator syntax...
Congratulations and welcome, agent Mechcondroid. When you are finished with your training missions, the offsite agents need briefing.
(or, we're all super jealous of you and really want to know what's going on at PAX! haha)
Enjoy the multipass!
HEY! Welcome to the party.
I'm trying to direct some friends over to the booth, can you give me an idea of where they are? c:
I bet they were instructed to keep us in the dark. This is a test of our ability to extrapolate the missions they underwent.

Hah, that's actually me with my back towards the camera. I didn't know people where taking pictures of us. I think this was shortly before I solved the second puzzle.
Great feeling, finding out HQ have been watching you without you knowing it, isn't it?
Welcome to The Black Watchmen
Well, to be fair I was told I was going to be watched... I just assumed they meant on the forums...
Muahahahahaa! How wrong you were! They're always watching....
Hey ya had to dive back into my favorite mech sim with a tourney (steel battalion line of contact, 4th place in semi-final for tonight's tourney tyvm) but ya I had a bit if an unfair advantage on the first case, I had participated in the psn home beta arg from start to end and they did a metric crap load of riddles and clues like that one; using a vague place and time reference and the answer being either related to or actually the nickname of a historical event.
(I belive that arg had around 30 or so of those type of riddles) as for "keeping it under wraps" no I was just being dramatic as i didn't want to outright point out the answer.
And the first pic of the face of dread the guy in the Navy hoodie on the right is me, I had come up with the idea of a more obscure reference for the second case it had the word night cut in half with a red line in the middle with x11 in subscript on the bottom right corner, the ref I thought of is a term concerning the angle of ascension and declination of the moon; Pao-es V - X11.
slight clipping of the info i referred to, the full paper is much longer:
bit much on the science-y stuff but that's a white paper for you lol.
Ya I'm a bit of a general science buff, if it's anything to do with science (non - bioscience for the most part, though neuro - science is interesting; particularly bio - feedback and the brains ability to rewire itself)
Total into physics and "practical" uses of it.
(My definition of practical is a bit unusual mind you, I'm a redneck techie and no nothing to do with star trek I mean technology. But the redneck part certainly does have to do with it.)
I find that so impressive...I am much more into semiotics the like, so I am always very much in awe of those who can understand all the science stuff.
Though come to think of it, that is probably why I overthink the holy hell out of all these missions.
Haha I'm actually in the "busy pic 2" with my cousin. We solved both briefcases at PAX and can't wait to work on future missions with you guys!
