TESSERA Round 5 - Aurora
Truthseeker: New message coming in. A live drop will be appearing soon. The Tethered Hand was not clear about its specific location or when it will be delivered. I'll give you an update as soon as I have more information.
The time is confirmed. 12/26 10:30 AM local time. A vessel will appear.
The message on JanusLaboratorium gives us an idea of the location:
" Janus perceives the fanatic of games soon reappearing. taking the form of a honeycomb.
From the origin of the Sun, hose in the East Capital beware.
Those in front of the Shrine, in particular, stay aware."
Tethered Hand just sent this to me. I would expect to also receive a hint for the passphrase within the next 2 days.
Incoming passphrase hint - "Where the undefeated light regrets to return."
Tethered Hand also confirmed this live drop to be 3 points.
Truthseekers. The delivery is going to take place in about 12 more hours. From the hint of location, it appears to be the first time outside the US! Hope you've all figured out the passphrase or at least have a couple options. The last 2 Live Drop required the Discoverers to solve a riddle on the spot. The cryptic words on Januslaboratorium previewed it could be related to Aurora's game.
As I was studying all the Tesserae we've retrieved so far, something caught my attention. Perhaps you've already noticed this, too. Most of the Tesserae have names that explicitly describe either an entity, topic, or event. Yet there's one category that does not follow that rule and merely addresses an element of what it represents. Why is that?
New update on Januslaboratorium could be another reference to the passphrase?
Another incoming visual from the Tethered Hand. This could help us identify the delivery entity:
@Truthseeker Could you tell us how much discovery points this live drop has?
@Truthseeker Is there an update on that passphrase hint?
Thank you for point clarification and passphrase hint.
I just got this....
Resistance got this live drop. Due to some troubles the delivery person did not have a physical Tessera, so I will update again later when I receive it.
Thanks for all support.
VERIFIED: @chiakeshi (You have earned 3 points for the Resistance as First Discoverer)
Please submit your Placement Prediction in this forum thread by 1800 UTC on January 1st, and quote this comment.
After @chiakeshi makes a prediction, the first Enlightened Prediction in this thread that quotes this comment will become the Enlightened Prediction.
Do you mean that each faction can post one prediction?
@isorhiza That is correct. As this is a live drop, so we would let the faction that gained the Tessera to make their placement prediction first. In this case, the Resistance will go first.
Resistance choose C11
@iorhiza de quel faction est tu ?
Though @isorhiza already posted for ENL (thank you!), to confirm:
I asked some questions to the deliverer on this live drop and just got their answers follows.
──Do you remember about the LiveDrop on last Thursday?
I only know because I when I regained my free will, I was there with a bunch of Ingress agents.
──Do you know who operated or commanded you? (We think that was Aurora one of Nemesis.)
I’m not sure—I was told that it must have been the Tethered Hand, but that’s just what I was told by other XM researchers I contacted after the fact.
──If who operated you was Aurora: We understand that giving tesserae to Agents is disadvantage for Nemesis. How do you think why he did it?
I’m not sure who or what took me over.
──You've been in contact with the Tethered Hand some times that day. Can you still contact him?
If I was able to, I don’t know how I was able to. Maybe agents who were there know the way in which I was contacting the Tethered Hand.
──You said that you will go to game center after the LiveDrop is over. Do you remember you went and play?
I remember after regaining command of my body that I really wanted to play some rhythm games. I went and played Jubeat for an hour.
──Please some message "from yourself" to Japanese Resistance and Enlightened Agents those who participated the LiveDrop.
Thanks to everybody who made time to come to the live drop. It was great to meet all of you, and I hope to see you all again!
to the Deliverer : Thanks for your answers and for delivering Tessera to Japan! We had many fun!
So I upload and claim again.
The Resistance was there.
