Clue #65 - Rachel Blake Iceland Post 02 & RoT/Verizon BLOOD

Latest from Rachel:
I'm back from New Orleans. Still catching up.
There's a new post on Rachel's blog. Seems pretty self explanatory and very insightful.

Rot/Verizon BLOOD Clue:
There are some new documents on richerbroaderdeeper.com (the Verizon site). You have to open these in PHOTOSHOP and increase the opacity to view the image. They layer the 3 on one another to view the complete message.



NO. 1 http://www.richerdeeperbroader.com/blood
BLOOD was in all caps in the new email you receive from the RoT site when you give them your email for the newsletter. This new document is missing a lot of letters...

NO 2 http://richerdeeperbroader.com/money/
Want some more of the letters? We got an advance preview courtesy of Dennis who guessed MONEY first try! Open this in PHOTOSHOP and overlap it with the "blood" layer.

HERE is what the first two images look like already combined.

NO 3 http://richerdeeperbroader.com/sorrow/
More? Okay. Good thinking BellyOfDesire...blue...sorrow

Mochi hooked us up with the image of ALL THREE COMBINED.

"Polar Bear" is the new password to get into their message board this was also found using info from the new newsletter email..."He stated his name was "Wand Prowess." (new password anagram) He then stated that I should remember his name, "not as it is but as it can be." Then he began what seemed like a poem, "In the Pacific I'm in the ocean bare, when I'm up north I'm the sea bear." (sea bear, ocean bear = polar bear)

Thanks to Matt the Pale, Dennis, Evil^^, and BellyOfDesire for posting this latest find in the comments.

Blogger ubudes said...

Just so I can help the people who are not up to date on the whole ROT issue...

The first word was the first word in Cabaret. That is 'Wilkommen' which is Welcome. The second was given by DSLerator on AIM in a code that spelt Your. The third and fourth came from Mandrake Wig's blog on Myspace in his 3rd and 4th Jeopardy clues which are Next and Video. So we're assuming that it spells out 'Welcome! Your next video...'

We just need those two more words!

I'm still trying to figure out what all this RoT stuff has to do with anything...BEFORE I go posting it. For all we know the AIM chatters, Mandrake Wig, etc could be just another type of sublymonal commercial...I want to be sure that they are actual ARG clues and not just lures to keep us hanging around Verizon and talking about Verizony things...(between the weeks Rachel posts videos there)

They gave us 48 hours. Not really a big clue. Just a timetable. I have a feeling...

Remember when sublymonal came out and we all watched all of those commercials and played all those stupid games and listened to those foxworth bentley tracks etc...a big piece of this Alternate Reality is marketing...Marketing isn't really our concern. What we really care about it Lost mythology and what we're being told about it.

For now, the admins of this site have agreed that the Rachel stuff is more probably more productive for everyone at this point. You have the freedom to chat about whatever you want here but we're waiting for something more solid/clear to post about (like I said though, I'm still catching up...send me an email and prove my suspicions unfounded)

Not "guided" discussions. You can talk about whatever you want ("wink-wink" for those of you who were around earlier this week - what a mess!). I just put up the clues and then play along.

Blogger aneylay said...

I've had some experience teaching the Hieroglyphic Alphabet so I've been working on translating the glyphs. From what I can glean, the first glyph, a folded cloth, represents the soft c or s sound, the second one, the coiled rope, stands for the th or h sound, the third, a single feather, represents the long e sound, and the fourth, the vulture, represents the short e or short a sound. I'm stuck on the last glyph. What does it represent?? Anyone have any thoughts? Once we figure it out, we can find possible anagrams.

6/29/2006 01:19:00 PM  
Blogger TiltaWhirlGirl said...

So, it seems to me that rachel knows what she has in mind but won't spit it out. She's telling us, "I’m not saying it’s NOT, but we shouldn’t shut our eyes so quickly to other possibilities." regarding the Valenzetti equation and the glyphs. What other possibilities is she wanting us to explore?

I just keep getting the same feeling when she said, "However... and I'm not doubting you guys... it's just... this doesn't seem to make sense! I KNOW what I saw - I keep replaying it over in my mind's eye - Mittelwerk grabbed my arm. I looked down and saw another map of an island near the zero degree latitude line. My lapel-cam didn't catch it, but, that IS the equator, isn't it?"

They seem do be trying to guide us where they want but they're doing an odd job of making it look believable.

i believe it was the MFI clue that said "starting wars so you don't have to", and implied that THF was using it's project to forecast the population growth to aid in tribal warfare... this is a way out there theory, but it may be possible that they intend to use the equation in ways other than for what it was intended... some people may think it's most beneficial to humanity to expedite the end of the human species to start over fresh and anew

RACHEL'S NEWEST UPDATE:

20.07: Something’s wrong.

I’ve been trying to email Armand Zander to see if any of this makes any sense to him, but for some reason, all my messages are getting bounced back. A computer-generated response keeps telling me his account, which worked fine yesterday, doesn’t exist.

And he’s not answering his phone.

Have they gotten to him?

Is this the Valenzetti Equation or something else? Would they really get rid of someone to protect it?

Am I next?

Saying a prayer for Zander…

On the assumption that RB is being followed by THF, it's very possible that her video yesterday was enough for them (THF) to eliminate the good doctor.

Richard - the ARG was written in a way that the people who haven't seen the end of season two need that information. I don't think what happened in the season finale will mean anything to the ARG until everyone has seen it, which will be much later on.

UPDATE from ROT

Fiberoptician
7:59am OK B's and G's. I got in early today and got a HUGE surprise. Something so special and cool and secret and... ok I'll stop. So I found this thing from YKW.... And it's good. I feel like Luke cleaning R2 and BAM!!!! - "Help me Fiber Op, you're my only hope." I'm expecting one of those crazy needle-wielding droids to come floating in here at any moment. Could this post scream - GEEK! - any louder? So we've already got something brewing in the pots for y'all today and I can't get this to you guys all at once and all on my lonesome so let me contact some folks and I'll get back to you.

Fiberoptician
8:12am I'm reaching out but I wanna make sure we're all on the same page. Here's where you all should be right now. You have four words. Today you can pick up two more hints for the hint hunt (I love saying that it sounds funny and dirty) for a total of... say it with me children, "six!" Wait, I gotta message... I'll be right back.

Fiberoptician
8:27pm And we're back! You know what? Espionagin' ain't easy. Ok so today some things will happen. I can't tell you what right now but you'll know when they do because you'll be stuck. What do you do when you're stuck? Go back to the beginning and start the process again. I spoke to this doctor friend of mine and he's agreed to help me the only way he can. A short PS with a WORD that will lead you to the first part of my special super secret thing-ama-whatsit. Parts two and three... humm.. I'll be back.


Fiberoptician
9:40pm Ok here you go. Tomorrow aka Friday, The Drake... everybody loves The Drake, will clue you into something he's been working on. There will be something in there for the hint hunt...hehehehe... sorry, and there will be a WORD in there somewhere for part two of my sweetness. Then... oh wait....


Fiberoptician
9:50am Then... sorry... on Saturday I will personally... not in person... give you the final WORD that will give you the final piece of my super excellent secret spy stuff goodness. Oh but I gotta tell you how to use these WORDS... yeah right... so I'm setting this up now. One sec...


Fiberoptician
11:05pm This is how it's gonna work. When you get a WORD, like the one today, Go immediately to http://richerdeeperbroader.com/, and in the address field type in the WORD right after the / and quicker than Vader can choke a flunky you gets the goodies.
Fiberoptician
11:05pm And may the fiber be with you.

idaho girl,
i know, i've heard all that before, but i think TLE is revealing stuff that we will all find out in the future, like the last episode ever, or stuff like that. in other words, we're learning a lot that might not make sense to anyone yet.
and that's why i marked my spoilers, cause everyone will be caught up by the end of the summer.

the whole TLE not speaking to the show thing i think has been disproven, especially now that they are so blatantly referencing something that we've seen in season 2.
does that make sense?

back to the last post: could the heiroglyphics be the Valenzetti equation? Zander said that they're "representaional." maybe they each stand for a part of the equation, as in [first heiroglyph] = xy + 4z and so on.

maybe THF knows the sequence of the glyphs... in other words, knows the equation, but not the details of what it means (or the whole details - apparently they know enough to be working on it). maybe that's what they're figuring out in basement 3.

but the question remains: what are they going to do with the equation if they figure it out (and what does it even do)?

SPOILER**************************








Just thinking out loud: With these glyphs being in the hatch on the countdown clock leading up to the EMP and also in the sub-basement with the savants and most likely the Valenzetti Equation, I would hazard an uneducated guess that the VE has something to do with EMP. Somehow harnessing it for their own purposes? Manipulating it?

Richard, I understand what you are saying. I have no doubt that the ARG and the show tie in.

I'm simply saying that the things that happened toward the end of the season aren't going to be in play until the Aussies, Kiwis, and others playing have had a chance to see those episodes too.

Once the episodes have aired in those countries, I completely expect the ARG to reference all of the things that tie in.

Gardel recorded these song, but the authors are Juan de Dios Filiberto and Gabino Coria Penaloza.

Carlos GARDEL recorded more than fifteen of his songs like "YO TE BENDIGO", "CAMINITO" and "MALEVAJE" ( in electric and achustic system). FILIBERTO's life was one of great efforts and sacrifice , he began working and studying as a small child.

Born 11 December 1890 (My birthday!), Died 24 June 1935. Was an enormously popular tango singer kiduring the inter-war years.

His death in an airplane crash at the height of his career created an image of a tragic hero in his native Argentina.

The Cantinito was written about the neighborhood where the Vapor de la Carrera is docked...as per ToDo Tango.

The mythical neighborhood of La Boca was the scenario where Juan de Dios Filiberto's life was staged. No one can say that he has known Buenos Aires if he has not walked visiting La Vuelta de Rocha, the Plazoleta de los Suspiros, the barges in the docks that include the traditional Vapor de la Carrera that made a daily voyage from Buenos Aires to Montevideo and the house of the painter Benito Quinquela Martín. To that we have to add today the "Caminito" thoroughfare, a must for tourists and tango fans.

Still don't know how it makes a difference with dogs, planes, etc.

PS is the country code for Palau, a country located from 4 to 8 degrees latitude in Oceania, just north of Australia. It consists of 343 islands, most of them uninhabited.

He said we should have four words at this point. Today we can get two more for a total of six.
Then he talks about the doctor. Then he says Friday, Drake will give us another word and then saturday he (Fiber) will give us the final word. So that would be a total of eight words I think?

Reading through Fiber's posts on RoT, here's what I understood:

Today - we will get stuck and need to start at the beginning. (My thinnking - they will change the password from "porter" to something else. We have to mail Wally and get the new word from the PS section.) Getting un-stuck will also provide a word. (Same as the password??)

Friday - Mandrake will post something on his site that has a word.

Saturday - Fiber will provide the last word.

Then we need to go to rdb.com and enter the different words at the end of the internet address to be shown the "goodies".

So does Mandrake have anything to do with stuff today???

Hi all:

I am hesitant to put this forward, since I stand in awe of the deductive abilities on this blog, but I want to at least mention the possibility that we are both over complicating and over simplifying one of the hints to the hints etc.

We agreed that the first word in the first song in Cabaret is "Wilkomen" but I think we may be mistaken to translate that to "Welcome." Every other hint so far was taken on its own terms. We are assuming this will lead to "welcome, your next video {blah blah blah}" but what if Wilkomen is to be taken literally, but phonetically as in "Wilkomen= "Will Come In" giving us "Your next video will come in {blah blah blah}" Since I will be traveling to Maine tomorrow (Anyone in the Augusta area?) and probably lacking wireless until Tuesday, I wanted to put this out there for consideration. I would lvoe to actually figure something out first on this game. Thank you all for being so smart.

The dark parts have lots of green in them, so I don't think it is a "wake".

We know that Rachel's cause is important... all we know about the RoT guys at this point is that they like to give clues... we don't know what the clues mean or are leading up to, you know?... the only real link between the two plots is the link to DJ Dan's podcast, which was quite different from the norm... meh... I'm just not sure what to think of these guys quite yet... it's fun and I'm still participating in that side of the game, but I'm sure after this series of words is complete and the "clue" in it's entirity is revealed, my position will change on the matter.. I'm just not understanding yet how they fit into the plot, you know?... meh.... I don't know...

Fiber specifically says we will have TWO new words today for a total of six words today.

"Fiberoptician
8:12am I'm reaching out but I wanna make sure we're all on the same page. Here's where you all should be right now. You have four words. Today you can pick up two more hints for the hint hunt (I love saying that it sounds funny and dirty) for a total of... say it with me children, "six!" "

tiltawhirl girl: matt was referring to admin's statement:

I'm still trying to figure out what all this RoT stuff has to do with anything...BEFORE I go posting it. For all we know the AIM chatters, Mandrake Wig, etc could be just another type of sublymonal commercial...I want to be sure that they are actual ARG clues and not just lures to keep us hanging around Verizon and talking about Verizony things...(between the weeks Rachel posts videos there)

dumb question- what does meh mean? I've figured out all of the other ones like tptb and imho and all, this one's stumping me. thanks for the clarification.

We have 4 words already. In the ROT post, it said that The Drake will give a hint tomorrow. Fiberoptician will give another on Saturday. So for today, there will be no new hints (possibly) and The Drake's post is just to confirm the clues that we have already (i.e. the 4 words). There will be a new clue tomorrow.

Uncle Diavolo...

I agree, I was especially interested in the new Iceland posts on www.rachelblake.com because now the pictures are clickable and you can look at them in a larger size...originally I wasn't able to do that with the Copenhagen picks. We're you? If not, perhaps we should be looking at those.

I was also interested because in the background of a couple of those pictures you clearly see snow covered mountains...Maybe its just my obsession (cause I thought that was where the whole canadia islands thing was going), but again I'm thinking listening post. After all, I doubt its ever something they will explain on the show, so why not in the game???

ok, thanks belly0 it was just an open ended post and I wasn't sure who or what he was talking about. He's kinda right though :)

Thanks for the meh translation too. I was racking my brain for some kind of meaning. Now I just feel stupid, it's an onomatopoeia hehe

Belly0fdesire,

The way i've started to see it, there are only 2 things we can trust right now. The ROTs and Persephone.

omg delete your comment Wopalockpino, that was never my intention. It's a tongue in cheeck "clue".

rumiko: It's not an abbreviation for anything. It's an onomonopeia. It's the sound of apathetic or confused shrugging.

Also, let it be known that I'm at a complete loss for what direction to aim right now, so I'm going to leave this up to your fine folks for a while and get some paying work done. Comics don't draw themselves...
