High priority intelligence related to the #IngressObsidian Flash Shards Anomaly on 27 FEB 2016.
It seems that either Jahan or the Acolyte may have sent some ripples through the Portal Network as they continue their research into the so-called ‘Obsidian Shield’ technology. These ripples seem to have had an impact on Ultra Strike XMPs, which are now showing ‘heightened attack capabilities.’
A source sent this surveillance transcript my way earlier today. One of the speakers is clearly Hank Johnson, and I have a pretty confident guess on the other speaker as well. Let me know who you think it is in the comments, let’s see if we’re on the same page.
This week’s been a whirlwind: lots of new information and leads. It feels like it’s building up to something bigger…something I suspect will go down at next weekend’s Anomaly events. Let’s take a look at what’s happened so far.
Earlier today, Agents of both Factions met in Bologna to compete in a breakneck race through puzzles and challenges in order to recover a mysterious key. The Enlightened prevailed and currently control the key.
This just came in via Hank Johnson, some commentary on recent discoveries in The Explorations of Obsidius, as well as his thoughts on the mission in Bologna to recover a certain key… I believe this key will unlock a lockbox currently in Susanna Moyer’s possession.
Yesterday, Susanna got a note and a package tracking slip. The package has arrived: A metal box secured with a padlock. No key included, but this image was attached to it. These clues may help us unlock the box.
Apparently, someone anonymously left Susanna Moyer an envelope containing this note and a tracking slip for a package of some kind. No further details at this point, but if I had to guess, I’d say Agents somewhere in Italy this weekend might be our best shot at finding out.
Here is a declassified version of the document that Agents in Tokyo were able to recover via a mission in Ueno Park this weekend. It contains high value intelligence related to the #Obsidian: Hamamatsu XM Anomaly… This Anomaly appears to have some interesting properties: It’s a hybrid of a traditional Cluster Battle with a Flash Shard Anomaly. I’ll be interested to see how it unfolds.
Thanks to multiple #ObsidianExplorers around the world, we’ve been able to recover a large number of pages from the Explorations of Obsidius. Excellent work, Agents.
Here is the transcript of these chapters.
