I believe the "chinese characters" that were referred are the ones on the right bar of the declan blog (attached).

The ciphertext "wisSSBrbmV3IHRoaXMgbWFu" looks to be Base64, but it doesn't decrypt as such. Possibly the end of a URL? I've tried the obvious:
http://playces.edu.yorku.ca/wisSSBrbmV3IHRoaXMgbWFu/
and
http://declangrey.com/wisSSBrbmV3IHRoaXMgbWFu/
which didn't work...

Maybe it is a key to a stegged photo?

The "hidden" PDF is probably the "Vitruvian Man" which has another QR code on it (which links to the 7th clue)

no, it's linked straight to the protest article. so the vitruvian wouldn't work.

Then I'm not following. What's linked straight to the protest article? How do you know?

ETA: Technically the "sign" on the protest page says "THE ONE WILL RESTORE !BALANCE" Razz
Maybe it means that IronClad will deposit a cheque in my bank account to restore it's balance?

*sigh* I can dream...

Oh, OK the links from the decoder:
http://thegodslake.com/play-the-game/decoder
So #1 refers to "Odoodem" (Anishinaabe word for clan "doodem" was borrowed into English as totem) and QR code #1 (See AzureWolf's post with all the QR code "movies"). That QR code can be found using the "upright" link in his blog which leads to this PDF and QR code:
http://declangrey.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/totem.pdf

#7 refers to "The Golden Ratio" (http://tinyurl.com/2unfjxl) and QR code #7, which can be found in the Vitruvian Man:

Blog's been updated!

Yay! I love it when things happen when I'm looking at them!

http://Declangrey.com blog is updated

Dr. Grey posts a letter that was included with his dismissal package.

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
There is faint text at the bottom right that says:
"Remember our deal...
VPL
BUS 333.38 F86m
HB"
I believe "VPL" is Vancouver Public Library, "BUS" is the business section, and 333.38 F86m is a call out number for a book.
I tried pasting a link to the book, but it's breaking the page code...
Go to the http://www.VPL.ca site, do a search for "keywords anywhere" with search criteria of "333.38 F86m"

Ok I think it's complete coincidence, but I was followed today by doodemTM... doesn't seem connected, but 'doodem' just caught my attention... Confused

I have the book being held at the counter for me, and there is a note in it! If anyone is in the VPL area, send me a PM, and I'll give you instructions on how to get the book/note.

The guy at the counter was not willing to fax/scan/e-mail/photograph the note... I'm going to try calling tomorrow, maybe I'll get someone more friendly. :S

Time to call in some old Vancouver aquaintences..

I don't think DoodemTM (joined Twitter June 21, 2010) is connected to this ARG. VERY coincidental though!

Saw your 4DF tweet. *crosses fingers*

Random idea

If I'm correct, we did not really find anything in the notes of Declan Grey found on http://playces.edu.yorku.ca/thecycleofthespiritsmustbeallowedtocontinue/.

Maybe there is more to it than just the babbling about Khmer mythology. The link to the picture is "1" and the GLP article about the protests says "the one will restore balance". Could it be the same "1" ?

I'm on a shitty computer at work so I can't really look for anything in the picture, has somebody checked if there was some data or smtg in the picture ?

i thnk the one refers to the mediator, but the york university thing, i think its just to make it seem more, aauthentic, if you wanted to hide something that would probably how you would go about it...

oh and guys, maybe we should start posting on the articles and stuff, i got a reply on the vitruvian institute article. (commented under the guise of mr.blue) check it out:

Oxbridge is a noteworthy institution that maintains exceedingly high standards and Iron Clad Properties prides itself in reaching out to such institutions to form new partnerships. Our deal here ensures that Iron Clad can both benefit from and give benefit to Oxbridge’s architecture and engineering graduates through internships and permanent placements. Any proximity in time to Dr. Grey’s dismissal is purely coincidental and in fact, we here at Iron Clad express our sympathies to Dr. Grey. Losing one’s livelihood in times such as these is never easy.

Best,

Rebecca



iron clad, honestly you astound me.

Campsite Gamma image

Download the campsite Gamma image to your computer. Change the extension from .JPG to .RAR. If you have an uncompression utility that supports RAR, double click the file, and you will be prompted for a password.
There will be content beyond the image, once we get the password...

Any takers?

ETA: Too slow! Razz

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
the password for the RAR is "sittingbull" (the quote at the end of the blog was from him)

ETA: I've attached the extracted file.
