About 10 months ago, we learned about a new group of Portals connected to a convenience store network known as Circle K. According to a redacted document found at the time, these stores are part of the cover for a global hunt for powerful XM artifacts. This week, thousands of new Circle K Portals entered the Portal Network. A source was able to provide me an unredacted copy of the original intel report.
Here’s Hank Johnson’s preliminary analysis of the section of the Howcraft document that surfaced yesterday.
I have been able to recover these pages via a source in Japan. It seems pretty clear to me that there are some sections missing from this, both at the beginning and the end, but I strongly suspect this is connected to the lead that Hank Johnson mentioned recently. I’ll keep an ear to the ground and see if the remaining sections can be recovered.
I’ve been seeing some scattered reports that ADA Refactors have been observed emerging from the Portal Network. Many may take that to assume that ‘normalcy’ has been restored. Personally, I’m not that easily convinced.
The Japanese researcher, Akira Tsukasa, was present at the anomaly in Japan this weekend. I have heard some reports that she may have gotten her hands on some intel. If we can confirm that or obtain the intel, that would be good for this Investigation. Failing that, I’m looking for theories on what she may have been up to out there
Now begins the task of undoing the work of the hackers who defaced this site. We must also determine who they are, and how and why they did what they did, not just to Investigate but to the #ViaLux Finale Anomalies. Those are tomorrow’s questions. Today, it seems we have an answer. It came from ADA herself, in the wake of the Resistance victory in #ViaLux.
Looks like I was able to regain access to this page just in time…There’s a lot going on right now, Jahan, Hank and ADA have all spoken to Agents earlier this evening, and while it will take me a couple of days to fix this site up again, I’ve been able to get the Via Lux Scoreboard up and running. So be sure to tune in as the Via Lux Finale begins to roar around the world.
