Everything so far / Beginners look here Since I'm obvioulsly not qualified to write this I'm hoping some of you who are already deeply involved in this will..... Please.... Pretty please?
What are the "basics" here?
What are we trying to do?
What are the in-game sites?
A summary or "everything so far" would be nice, too.
(15+ pages - and counting - in just one topic-thread is a lot to hold in your mind as a newcomer to this ARG.)

There's the summary thread which I wrote. There's also the resources thread. It's all here.

I am writing this as a crash course, in hopes that someone from Philly can get enough information from it to successfully interact, even if they are new to the game... 17 pages of posting can be daunting, especially with fort brag, etc.
I am EXCLUDING all of these topics, for the sake of simplicity:
*The Church in Ohio
*anything to do with Synagoga
These may later prove useful, but for those familiarizing themselves with the game, they only add more confusion. Some of you may object that I don't include Synagoga; quite frankly, I need more proof that its related before we start quoting bible verses at whatever rings the payphone.
HERE"S THE STORY
Lenny has been recieving emails from an unknown being. It is asking for his help in finding its twin... we are unsure whether both twins are contacting him or not. Emails came from adresses that were linked to a payphone in Philly and his own phone number (unknown to us).
When Siren's cousin (she and her cousin are players) checked out the phone, he got a message saying to meet again Tuesday, at 7PM.
We have been contacting Lenny through email (LennJames SPLATgmail.com) and IM (paxwell777) we have not confirmed contact with the Unknown Entity (again, excluding Synagog, which may be unrelated).
Lenny has a past of such phone calls, and his family put him in a "ward" then moved him away to a different state... nine years later (now) they are contacting him again
For phone contact, we believe the following should be covered:
who the person is
where she is
Why she is contacting lenny
WHAT HAPPENED LAST TIME SHE TRIED
where she came from
anything she knows about her twin
Everything she knows about Lenny
TELL HER WE CAN HELP
If the phone call goes anything like Lenny's did, she may be unresposive to these topics, in which place let her speak... if she hits on a topic, try asking her.
IT IS VITAL THAT WE ATTEMPT TO RECORD THIS PHONECALL... even a low quality tape player may assist you in remembering the conversation and posting a written transcript.
***A note on contacting Lenny: he has been oddly protective of his AIM adress, and asked me not to give it away. I would recommend emailing him your AIM addy, contacting me and letting me try to tell him about you, or, if desparate, contact him and tell him you are talking to him with Sarah's blessings, then mention something like the Guardian Angels, that only a friend would know about (thus vital that you check the AIM transcripts)***
I am trying to pass the torch here, I don't want to be the only link between Lenn and the GA's (thats us, the Guardian Angels). But paranoid as he is, I don't want to lose the only link of trust we have if he decides I'm part of some sick prank...
Hope this helps!
Add anything you see fit, players.
ITS A LION! GET IN THE CAR!

It's no sick prank, it's something out of ILoveBees...
Lenny is just like Dana, he acts like he doesn't know anything, something is emailing him through Hex Codes. Someone calls him, a voice that mysteriously sounds like The Sleeping Princess, of course, asking for help...
And we need to record on the upcoming phonecall...
