    Dear Agents!

    Today marks the long awaited release of The Black Watchmen Almanac! We have spent months poring through old mission notes, photos, emails and forum posts and we are honoured to present you with an overview of our work over the past two years. The Almanac features 84 pages of insight into every aspect of the creation of The Black Watchmen - from its beginnings as a The Secret World promotional ARG to that time we kidnapped a player in downtown Vancouver.

    Whether you are curious about our mission design process, the BLUECRUSH virus or the true identity of Adam Rosenberg, you will be sure to find your answers within the Almanac. Gain valuable intel on the lives of the creators of the game. Who knew that Jarobi has seen a UFO?

    As we take the time to look back on what we have done over the past few years, we are also thrilled to look forward on what is to come.

    The almanac looks great. Can't wait to see what some of that redacted stuff in the timeline will be...

    I wanted to include as much people I could, but to be honest the process was really exhausting. As soon as I get more energy, I will focus on adding an appendix to highlight all the great community moments we had, the agent sketch, the red herring, etc...

    It's just the beginning. :)

    It doesn't look that way to me, you should try re-downloading it.

    Hi agent Lolzor! You have and old version of PDF reader (acrobat or something else) that doesn't support transparency and multiplication effect. Your file is likely correct, it's the rendering that cause your issues.

    Here is what it look like in Preview (Mac) or Acrobat (Mac / PC)

    When I try to view it with the latest Firefox it is utterly unreadable:

    Hi Snow0815!
    Can you try it with Acrobat directly and tell me if you still have the problem?

    Nice, although I'd still like to have the pdf version. Mainly for reasons of simplified opening and it taking less hard drive space.
