    You're almost there! Be sure you know what the question is asking for.
    "Find the supernatural origin of the incidents." Read the report. It wasn't just "general vampire stuff" that this person got. Just try out different words for the thing that was "given" to this person.
    ...Now, if you can get to the fourth puzzle, maybe you can help me.

    Thanks, you helped me. That was too obvious lol.
    Still stuck with phenomena
    DONE -.-
    question is so missleading
    it's not a phenomena dat's a ritual

    Mod: Do you see a ritual ? Anywhere at all in the report ?

    im out of ideas on what it could be, espescially since i already tried all viable possibilities

    They are not vampires, so ditch the crossbows. [/spoilers]

    I said "bloodsucking", because that was how they were described
    And with 'viable possibilities' im reffering to having 'brute forced' almost every weapon + other equipment... (i got pretty desparate/frustrated at one point)

    same problem now. Sent all of google maps spots, crossroads, houses near pedestrian roads and lots of parking cars and no-houses zones. Still nothing

    Don't forget to copy/paste your gear IDs from the pdf, something is broken within the encryption and somehow this is the way to make it work

    You just have to name a landmark near the clinic's circuit.

    All right, I DID finally solve it.

    The landmark in question didn't seem to be too near the path. Then again, never having been to South Africa (or...anywhere outside North America, but anyway), all I had to go on was Google Maps. I don't know how easy it is to see the marked-out path from the landmark in question...but on the other hand, once I had "name a landmark near the clinic's circuit", it didn't take me long at all.

    Of course...the other thing about that puzzle...

    It doesn't actually ASK you for anything in the final code entry. All you do is say "Oh, there's this thing that was mentioned, maybe I should type it in". Personally, I think you should change it to give some guidance...just something like "Send this information in the email, and see if the agent you're contacting has any new leads". Just so it doesn't feel out-of-the-blue. That's just my opinion, though, I suppose.

    By the way...This woman I knew once registered a domain name that was mentioned in an ARG, that the creators hadn't registered themselves. Then she "held it hostage" until they completed various tasks for her. I would never do that, of course, but I worry that someone might...

    Found that point... Oh really... It is not on the path and there is no sense to ambush. It is a VIEW POINT, not an ambush place...
    And still site on green page isn't working.

    UPD
    Oh common ambush and identify the target. And you have his face on facebook page. And when I tried everything to find him I got that you want just the name of the company...
    disappointed.

    LOL'D UPDATE

    The target doesn't forcibly mean a person, the guy you're tracking is just a courier, why would do want to find him, it's recon work, not assassination/interrogation.

    A view point can be an ambush place, since you got a high ground to spot who you seek.

    And the logo is there to prevent you to look into homonyms, please be careful when you sent emails to people outside the game.

    If i recall;
    its a christian thingie; and the thing is way less complicated than what the puzzle suggests

    Oh my! I've just spent the last two hours racking my brains and still can't get it. Whats wrong with me!!!!

    Let's see...here's a simple hint...

    So, you're looking for a "phenomenon". In other words, you're looking for a noun. However, it might be useful to find a verb and then turn it into a noun. Like, if the entity was being "destroyed", you could say "destruction". Except it's not just destroyed, we're looking for something very specific. Anyway, try different verbs and see what you come up with.

    And continuing from that, here's a more specific hint...

    It seems like the entity was driven out by holy power. You could try searching for some synonyms of "drive out". Really, just do a web search for "synonyms of drive out". And remember to make it a noun. ;)

    This is ridiculous

    I've gone through each drive out synonym and nothing makes sense. I want it to be the e word but you can't shorten it enough to work. Is Vampire the first one or is it being spelt dhampyr?

    I dont deserve to call myself an agent :-(

    Let's see it this way:
    what do you want to do with a demon or a spirit?
    it is an entity that is not from here.
    You do not want it around, so you want to....
     
  18. Adriana

    Do I have the first word right ...

    with the first letter V not D

    The second is so on the tip of my tongue, I know what I want it to be like expel or exorcise but nothing fits with 5 letters
     
  19. Chaoseed

    Chaoseed Special Agent

    Oh...OH! Well. I have to apologize...that was a hint for a different puzzle! (See, you replied to a post that was talking about a different puzzle...) Sorry about that. >.>

    But if you're thinking about that first puzzle, well...

    The first word DOES start with a V!

    And then I'll reiterate the hint I gave earlier in the thread...

    You're almost there! Be sure you know what the question is asking for.

    "Find the supernatural origin of the incidents." Read the report. It wasn't just "general vampire stuff" that this person got. Just try out different words for the thing that was "given" to this person. The word is actually used in the first report!

    LOL oh brilliant that means I am not going mad then. Sorry I've only posted a couple of times and didn't realise that I had replied in the wrong place.

    Ok I will erase your spoilers from my head and start again with the new ones given.

    Such a relief. I have a huge smile :)
