Welcome to The Black Watchmen This thread is meant to introduce new agents to the story of the Black Watchmen and the world we exist in. New agents should try the beta missions on division-66.com described in the second post, and come to the IRC if they want help. These missions are not intended to be completed individually, though it is possible. This thread was also made several months before release of the game client. Some aspects of the story, lore and mechanics have changed or are otherwise no longer relevant to the current story. Black Watchmen agents work together. -------------- The call came first to the Unforums, a collection of people who know that there's more to our world than one simple reality. The message spread quickly: Unforums, The Secret World, Ingress, The Survivors of Dies Irae, and others were swept up into the fold of The Black Watchmen. We are agents of Division 66, the Press arm of The Black Watchmen. Only a few know exactly how large The Black Watchmen organization is. We know of Division 42, field agents whose misfortune caused us to be brought into the fold. Division 79 seems to be Research and Development, and the fate of Division 33, for certain members of The Secret World, is unknown. The Black Watchmen rose out of the remains of the QADHOS Organization. The goals of The Black Watchmen are not yet known, but overall, we protect the public from dangerous phenomena beyond their understanding. We have no allegiances to the secret societies of The Secret World, but of course they exist in our world, in one form or another. We've worked with The Black Watchmen twice before, when The Secret World opened up for a brief time and once again at the end of the world, though those memories become foggier by the minute. Why does the world need The Black Watchmen now?
