TESSERA Round 12 - Victoria Kureze & Oliver Lynton-Wolfe
Truthseekers: Two cryptic messages were intercepted by Dr. Kureze and Dr. Lynton-Wolfe from the Portal Network. The NIA believes, by decoding them, you will receive important insight. Message #1 will give us the original transcript between Kureze and OLW plus the lead for solving Message #2. First Faction to retrieve the transcript will get 1 pt. Different from previous drops, there will be a Prediction Window as well as a Discovery Window (see below for details). The first Faction to decode Message #2 within the Discovery Window will gain 2 pts for Tessera Victoria Kureze. The other Faction will gain 2 pts for Tessera Live Drop Oliver Lynton-Wolfe only if they have also decrypted Message #2 within the Discovery Window.
Here are the details for points & First Discoverer designation -
- The points will be determined by the order of valid* in-Scanner Media Object screenshots submitted to this thread, .i.e.
- The first Agent to submit the in-Scanner screenshot of the transcript wins 1 pt for their Faction. This Agent will qualify for the Paragon Medal as a Tracker.
- The first Agent to submit the in-Scanner screenshot of Tessera Kureze wins 2 pts for their Faction(A) and is designated the First Discoverer. You also secure your Faction's chance to make a Prediction for this Tessera.
- The first Agent from Faction(B) to submit the in-Scanner screenshot of Tessera Kureze will be given the code for Tessera OLW. After said Agent has posted the in-Scanner screenshot of Tessera OLW to this thread, they will gain 2 pts and be designated First Discoverer. Then, the code will be shared with Faction(A).
- The code for Tessera OLW will be given to Faction(B) through TG channels, if the Agent is MIA or Vessels have no direct means to contact them. The Agent will still be designated the First Discoverer.
- There will be a pop quiz for the Prediction of Tessera OLW. The Faction(B) First Discoverer will be competing against the first Agent from Faction(A) that posted the screenshot of Tessera OLW. This Faction(A) Agent will qualify for the Paragon Medal as a Tracker once they've made their Prediction.
- The physical Tesserae will be mailed at a later time to the First Discoverers. Vessels will reach out.
- Your Prediction Window is 65 min. If a Faction doesn't decode both messages in time, they will lose the chance to make Placement Predictions. Nemesis will hence gain 2 pts for that Tessera.
- Your Discovery Window is 2 Hrs from the drop of the puzzle. If a Faction doesn't decode Message #2 in time, the 2 pts for Tessera Discovery also go to Nemesis.
- This Virtual Live Drop will take place @ June 26th 18:00 UTC
Valid*: Passcode redemption verified in server by the NIA and actually participated in the decoding process.
