Echo Anomaly Series - Rules [Discussion]
TS-1218 is the version of events Agents investigated from 2012—2018. TS-OSIRIS is the version of events accessed via the Ingress Prime Scanner. What we’re experiencing now, following the aftermath of the Epiphany Dawn Anomaly Series and Machina’s ingression, is something altogether different.
This isn’t mass hallucination or a false memory, like the Mandela Effect/Kureze Effect. We’re firmly planted in a new and alternate reality, codenamed TS-RUBICON. (The Rubicon is a shallow river in northeast Italy, and was the decisive point that no army was meant to cross without permission of the Roman Senate. Its name is a reference to the ruddy color of the soil on its banks.)
The Niantic Project at CERN was not the first time a sculptor, a quantum biologist, a reality TV show host, a club DJ, a linguist, and 8 others had met. This random gathering of people wasn’t random at all. In TS-RUBICON, Agents are investigating how these 13 people would eventually come together to set a plan in motion that would ultimately lead to an exploded Hypercube and XM Scanner technology leaking to the general public.
The Resistance victory of the MZFPK HexQuest successfully influenced Jarvis to travel to the largest railway station in Switzerland. In Echo, Agents continue to interpret Tycho’s visions of the past, present, and future to influence his path. An Enlightened victory has Jarvis seeking Carrie Campbell. A Resistance victory has him seeking Devra Bogdanovich. Der Würfel ist nicht gefallen.
