[IM] John V - 5:20 PM Eastern (11/15/06)

Quote:

JW:
John! Are you ok?

chasingtriangles:
other than this fricken hangover I'm trying to drink away
good I suppose
are you ok?

JW:
John, have you looked at any of your emails today?

chasingtriangles:
nope
guess you think I ought to go check my emails eh?
you send me some porn or something?

JW:
No. You might want a beer handy.
There's no good way to say it, so here it is.

chasingtriangles:
hell I got a whole fricken case handy
what the hell you talkin about son?

JW:
Hanks chat was interuptted last night by an intruder. Kendra called Sylvia later that night and said there was blood everywhere.
And we dont know what happened to Hank.

chasingtriangles:
somebody kick his ass then?
I hope that son of a bitch gets a good ass kicking
oh shit
that chat was last night eh?

JW:
Yes.

chasingtriangles:
damn I forgot
woops

JW:
Don't worry about that right now.

chasingtriangles:
sorry was passed out drunk half the damned night

JW:
John, considering how upset Kendra was, it wasn't just a beating.
Hank was either kidnapped or murdered.

chasingtriangles:
haha yeah right
I'm sure kendra would have called me
wait

JW:
Call her.
Because she needs you.

chasingtriangles:
guess she tried calling a few times last night
hmm

JW:
I'm going to show you how the chat ended last night.

chasingtriangles:
ok I've got to go sober up

JW:
hauntedhank (8:38:44 PM): I swear I keep hearing thinggggggggggggggggggggg

chasingtriangles:
this is disturbing

JW:
hauntedhank (8:40:04 PM): Good night all. Hank will no longer require your services.

chasingtriangles: sobering up
JW:
Call Kendra first. And you need to watch out. If this is involved with the Lanti crap, they could be coming after anyoen with knowledge of it.

It seems like we (or at least you, jwiv) are going with the assumption that this message from "our friend" is a warning to John, but as I see it, it may as well be a warning about John. Kendra's not the only one with missing time lately, and John was fairly pissed at Hank quite recently.

[spec] I don't think John would attack Hank over that, but if whatever agent or "others" is out there taking over people's body's (like Somnambulist42), it could well be that John was susceptible to that influence. [/spec]

1. Set up an in-game website wher John can communicate with us but he can't be tied to it

2. Send him email tonight about the site

3. We have to warn Bryan

4. Get Kendra to get Bryan's phone number

Sylvia:

I understand if John's more comfortable using a proxy, but (and, of course, IANAL), law enforcement would need a subpoena to compel us to give over any IP activity, which would mean they would need to know what IP address they're looking for. And anyway I think that only applies if the crime in question happened online (i.e. stalking, soliciting a minor, etc.).

Again, I'm not a lawyer.

John called! He said he was driving out of town, mentioned the forum, and asked if we'd been able to contact Kendra. I told him we hadn't, and he said he'd just tried to call and couldn't get through. He said he'd try and get ahold of jwiv and that we should try and get in touch with Kendra.

While I was looking up our wonderful YouTube personality, TheSomnambulist42, I came to find out the meaning of their name. It basically means sleepwalking or sleepwalker. Some of us already know that, but I didn't. Anyway, doing more research brought me to the wikipedia page for it, and after clicking some links, I found this piece of information about crimes committed during sleepwalking:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automatism_%28case_law%29

Imagine this possibility. What if people who hear the Lanti language can become hypnotized by it, or it has the ability to be more suggestive that normal languages if the right words are used? If John was hearing a certain phrase, or he was trying to read something outloud, it could have triggered a sleepwalking state or dropped it into his subconsciousness for the next time he slept.

Hank mentioned that he had a bunch of recordings or texts all of a sudden? Maybe these could have triggered it.

Being in this state and possibly sleepwalking from his place to Hank's place, and then killing (or beating him and hiding him, who knows, since we don't know if the body is around, unless this has been answered) Hank while in this state, he could be a victim of hypnosis or sleepwalking in general.

Basically, if the detective is able to find clues that prove John to be the killer, and John does not remember doing it (and was, in fact, sleepwalking), this could be used in his defense so we can keep him around.

... just another two cents of mine. Rolling Eyes

good detective work Daikah. But I can say this much. John had better been at home passed out like he said because we are really putting our butts on the line for him.

Where is hyexistenz when we need her. I vote we hire her as our attorney. hope she doesn't charge much.

John Mail

John sent me some mail that included a chat he had with someone.

Here's the important parts:

John: means he might be there before we are and in which case I'll know that I need to have my pistol in hand rather than tucked away.

John: and if I see that son of a bitch I'm going to kill him myself
only word from Detective Fielding apparently he killed Rita too

John: I was hoping to find Sylvia on if you see her can you relay a message?
John: tell her we're in Africa at the moment
John: Asmara
John: staying at the intercontinental asmara, but we're checking out as soon as Kendra wakes up

John: yesterday we landed and when we went to the taxi the driver went absolutely bonkers started acting like we were gods

the guy was telling an old story about an angel in a box
and the blood of the king would one day come
apparently of course that's Kendra

so the driver wanted us to meet his Father he came last night to the hotel, sat down with us and explained in perfect English.
He mentioned the church we are heading to, said that inside was the ark of the covenant, which is believed to hold an angel. Kendra and I explained to him that we believed the Angel's name is Chaya He is a keeper of the ARK, some sort of secret society thing in which their first sons become monks at teh church then he told the story that the blood of the king would one day come and right the wrongs of her ancestors
so apparently he's going to get us into the church tonight which I guess if you're in America that's sometime tomorrow
I went last night and picked up that pistol I told you about
I'm a bit leary of strangers after what happened to Hank, but this is all too weird not to go along with have you all found out anything else about the Ark? why the hell is she in there?

John: and just who the hell is bryan?
John: we'll be leavign in a few hours
I'll check my email before we go

zoolinc: ok
me: I'd like to know what we're up against before we get there
zoolinc: me 2
me: thank you

My response to John

John,
Bryan does know you're in Africa. Hell, he might even know exactly where you're going.

As to the Ark and Bryan and Chaya . . . It's a bit murky still. Mole, Silvya, and a few of us have been brainstorming theories and while we don't agree entirely on all the details, but here's the rough gist of it all.

Chaya, aka Yshk Lanti aka the being responsible for the numbers website is in the Ark of the Covenant. Most likely, she is the being spoke of in the Angel in the Box story you're hearing. She created the website by possessing a boy's body and working through him.


As for Bryan and Chaya's relationship all we know for certain is this - In the days prior to Atlantis' destruction they were married. The Lantis had become greedy and decadent in some fashion and for whatever reason a group of them took Chaya away from Bryan. The exact reasons for this are unknown - it could be a simple kidnapping/ransom type deal, it could have been they wanted to force Bryan to do something, or it could be something else entirely. Regardless, Bryan destroyed Atlantis because of it.

Now, it could be speculated that Chaya's imprisionment and being bound to the Ark of the Covenant could have been the act of the government of Atlantis - this would make sense as the key to Chaya's release is tied to the noble lineage. What is however important for the time being is that Bryan will stop at nothing to make sure that Chaya is released. He will make Kendra release Chaya, willingingly or not.

Chaya's imprisionment may have been unjust and the right thing for Kendra to do may be to release her. BUT here is the problem.

Bryan is a vengeful and vindictive son of a bitch. He sent a mail to Silvya taunting her and I'll quote the relevant passage here.

" Once we free her, forcibly or not, Chaya and I can return home and
this world can suffer for the torment it has forced us to face.
They only saw the tip of what I can do after they took her from me.
They were upset we were leaving, they tried to stop me from going
by taking my love away from me. This world corrupted has been
corrupted by mankind for too long now, and I am sick of breathing
your filthy air. "

I wish I knew what the proper play is here. There's a chance that Chaya can talk Bryan down. I know you're armed John, but if he gets the drop on the two of you, I think this goes badly for all of us.


I've taken the liberty of copying some of the brainstorming and placing it on the forum we created for you earlier.

http://nednai.free-forums.org/nednai-about2.html

Be careful John.
Josh
