    Hello!
    I'm pretty new to ARG's, though I've always found the concept fascinating and always wanted to participate in one. I do like puzzles (though I might not always be too good at them). I did play TSW for awhile, and found the setting of that game to be really awesome. Right now I'm just a little lost. I saw the kickstarter arg thing, though not entirely certain where to go from there.

    Hello. I've never really done an ARG before, but I'm super excited to get into it. I've already been on here and the TBW site for a few hours, pouring through all the information. I can't wait for things to kick off.

    Hello everyone, Anathema here. My friend and I stumbled onto this ARG At PAX east this year. I used to play Ingress and thoroughly enjoyed the ARGish puzzle aspects of the Secret World. When I saw the puzzles at the booth and basically started pouring my attention into them, I knew I was going to have a great time. I am super excited, but a little overwhelmed at the sheer amount of catching up I have to do @[email protected] It's good to meet you all!

    I played Majestic and fell in love with the ARG. I used to get excited when I'd come home from work and the message light would be blinking on my answering machine. I'd hurry through my night and settle in to play for hours, looking up conspiracy theories and trying to figure out what was "real" and what was part of the game. The game wasn't popular enough to continue and they killed it, which bummed me out - and gave me back a lot of free time.

    I've played no other ARGs until this one, but I love TSW and the stories and myths woven in, so I'm excited to have backed this project and am ready to play.

    One thing I don't have anymore is a lot of free time, so I hope this allows me to pick it up and put it down, and not have to keep up with a certain player pace. It's also been a long time since I played an ARG and I hope the difficulty ramps up slowly so I can get used to the process again.

    Welcome! I think the new user interface will allow you to "put it down and pick it up" more than other arg's which are very time based.

    Hi, I'm Leila. This is my first ARG. I'm excited!
    I heard about ARGs from a friend who played Majestic, and have since always been interested in dipping my toe into the ARG world.
    When I randomly did a search for ARGs, yesterday, I stumbled across The Black Watchmen, read about it, and signed up.
    Here I am!
    Weeeeeeee!!!!!...... :)

    Am floored that there are others who did Majestic, which was my first, and sadly last. Until now. Learning curve has never been so much fun. I love that this game truly embraces all our gifts, not just gamer. And that all are so into being here, and welcoming to all, that the open arms beckon like long lost family. And the warnings to watch my back, be paranoid and to avoid abduction...well, it does sound like the advice of my Uncle Petraus. And yes, he was a Watchman, so it makes sense now.

    Hi guys, I'm Lucretat!

    This is my first ARG, but I'm so excited about it all. I've been playing TSW for some time now and got really attached to the code-breakingy researchy stuff thats going on in there. But now I wanted something more. That's when I found out about TBW.
    As you can guess, I'm more into the research part of the game, but as a (kind of) former Geocaching player I'd also like to play outside! I'm from Prague, Czech Republic - so if something comes up around the Wenceslas Square, who you gonna call? That's right!

    I've already participated in one live mission this weekend (Operation JADELION) and I made my friends to help me deciphering in a pub :) We didn't crack the whole code, but we got the right direction... Looking forward to the next time!
