Hello, Agents. As promised, here’s my top-line look back at this week in the Ingress Investigation.

Last week, we followed the Roman exploratore Obsidius on his journey to North Africa in search of an Oracle.

We started out this week with intercepted intel from both Jahan and the Acolyte offering their perspectives on Obsidius’s mission and his companions – Cybella the Oracle and Syphax the guide – confirmation that both these high ranking Faction officials are very, very interested in what Obsidius was on to back then. It also seems they know more than we do. We’ll need to dig harder if we’re going to get ahead of this.

A Portal Clue led one of our #ObsidianExplorers to Pompeii, where he found the next page in the Explorations of Obsidius. Thanks to this discovery, we learned a couple of interesting things about Obsidius’s objective. His mission was to find someone or something known as Magnus. If that sounds familiar, I’m guessing it’s no coincidence. It also appears that Cybella the Oracle felt compelled to join Obsidius and Syphax on their journey, although her reasoning is not yet known.

One other interesting thing about that journal page was a vision from Cybella, a possible prophecy of present time… the imagery is pretty familiar, and I’ve heard scattered reports that some intel was recovered at Portals in Rio and Seattle. No confirmation at this point.

Towards the end of the week, via Behind the Scanner and Hank Johnson, we got news about a live mission in Washington DC leading to an intel exchange from an IQTech leak. That went down yesterday, about 50 Agents took part in the mission, and apparently a large stack of documents was handed off.

In the wake of this, however, only a single page has surfaced… a chat transcript about Calvin’s mental state. Apparently the Niantic Project founder is still struggling to put his head back together. As for the rest of the documents? No trace. Read into that what you will.

Here’s what I think we need to focus in on next week: What did Obsidius discover back then that has both Jahan and the Acolyte so primed? How might it impact the #Obsidian Anomalies? And what was really handed off in Washington DC?

If any of you know more, if I’ve missed something, or if you have questions, let me know in the comments. Otherwise, stay vigilant, stay curious, and stay connected.

Until next time.
