[Trailhead] Behind The Yellow Curtain BTYC Ep5

It seems it's that time of year again with the start of the next Episode from the Yellowcurtain people.

I received a Tweet from @qadhos asking 'friend or foe'.

Since then some minor updates to the wiki from Anashel who we know to be the PM that has added Episode 5 to the list. This has now been added onto the yellowcurtain FB. All links below... Seems like they are warming up...

***ETA: UPDATE: as of March 4th, BTYC has gone LIVE..!! Checkout http://www.qadhos.com or pick up this thread from HERE***

New info discovered at GDC in San Francisco!!


***ETA: UPDATE: as of March 13th, QADHOS has thrown down the gauntlet..!! Check !New Qadhos Facebook! if you haven't already


Check the wiki link below for back story

Previous Episodes have been good fun, puzzling, challenging, good storylines (based around and within a Lovecraftian mythos), and usually a 'save the cheerleader' element - which I think we've always managed to one way or the other NOT save Rolling Eyes

Keep watching, I'm sure they are gearing up..!

That is the site linked to via the twitter account. Also, there seems to be only one item up for sale. It mentions a birth date of March 29th, 2008 for one "Solvej Doyon".

Also, I've signed up for every possible thing that I could on the site.

where is the "solvej" reference in the site? i saw it like a week ago when i searched for updeats from BTYC but think its not in game.. the book they are selling is some kind of empty Grimorium which is some kind of spell book or magic book, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grimoire

btw, just noticed that the site is connected to noize analytics, i remember reading it was IG in EP3 but i dont think there is anything there.

well, we are ON:
http://www.yellowcurtain.com/

just seen it.
press the pic to find some kind of voice morse, i think..

EDIT: i donr know how to decode morse so dont trust me, but one program i have translated it to 20110305, which doesnt do anything to the qadhos datastore. might be a date or something, still need to think it out.

where is drejl and all the other guys?

um, and three new tweets from qadhos, including one very strange, to @Red_Day_Dance "There is a place, a dark place...where ancient evil slumbers and waits to return."

Sorry, I was too drunk to check in earlier. Wink But, of course drejl is around. Smile
Going to check all the posts now.

Edit: morse translates to me as 30220305.. No match with datastore though and not binary..

Edit2: in the art store the side image of the Grimorium shows the date 29th of March 2008. Anyone remember if this date was significant in previous episodes?

Edit3: Uri, the quote seems to be from the movie Hellboy... Not sure what to do with that right now..

Edit4: Also, the image on yellowcurtain.com: initial-initial Higgm-- 1870.. Can't really get anywhere googling that.

Edit5: (Yes, I'm slowly waking up)
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
So we have Sasha Pickman Doyon on twitter. Pickman > Pickman's Model. "The story revolves around a Bostonian painter named Richard Upton Pickman who creates horrifying images. His works are brilliantly executed, but so graphic that they result in his membership in the Boston Art Club being revoked and himself shunned by his fellow artists."
Boston Art Club ties to the post on yellowcurtain.com... George F. Higgins.
http://whitemountainart.com/Biographies/bio_gfh.htm
There's our signature.


Next question: how to link the morse code to that...?

Seeing the shop link was Canadian, I had to check it out.

The item itself is called "Grimorium", I believe. Sort of like how you see various 'cute' little names tagged on items on websites like etsy. The actual description indicates that it's essentially a photo album with carved front and back covers. A direct translation of the product description would probably be more like:

Quote:
Personalized album for your most precious memories, hand sculpted in American black walnut [wood]. Contains 30 pages/has the capacity to store 240 4"x6" photographs.


I am bilingual in Canadian French and English, so, I felt I'd just chime in with that little note regarding the item. Just in case the fact that it's a photo album might be some sort of hint as well. I don't know, it's late and I should perhaps be off to bed soon. XD;

That's the edition of the Boston Evening Transcript mentioning Higgin's work.

hey Drejl, Uri - good to see you guys here Very Happy o/

I had problems running the morse on my mobile device ( it must use a flash widget or similar ) so sent the mp3 link to my media player which unfortunately scrolls the file's tags on the display, and displays 20110305 in the info along with the website it was created on...

March 5 2011 maybe ( happens to be Multiple Personality Disorder day ) dunno, but maybe main kickoff date..? I was puzzling over the tweet that mentioned 'on' Qadhos, made me think of a channel, radio station, ircc etc...


Tex...

ETA my response to the friend or foe tweet was "@qadhos is usually based on knowledge and trust, at the moment I have none... maybe given enough time, I may be able to answer... wb"

The "No one on Qadhos tonight... still looking for him." tweet is also intersting, made me think of all the strange things around qadhos agents hacking their own qadhos server ><

Nice newspaper archive Drejl. They certainly thought Mr Higgins had something about him (page2, column2 for those interested - "Art Matters")...

but I thought that the small piece below that on "A man at Manchester, England" quite interesting, especially being a man at Manchester, England quite frequently myself. Apparently he had been bitten by his dog some time before, and after reading about a case of hydrophobia (linked to Rabies), he convinced himself that he had contracted the illness went to the infirmary where he was treated, but later died, with the post mortem (autopsy) confirming he had passed away due to exhaustion, caused by acute mania.. very HPL I thought..

nevertheless, I also offer this piece of nonsense http://www.nhhistory.org/museumexhibits/mysterystone/mysterystone.htm, of a mystery stone found in 1872 at Lake Winnipesaukee - the lake being the subject of the painting by Mr Higgins...

None of which has any bearing on BTYC I'm guessing, but I had some time on my hands this afternoon... Flounder
Smile

acute manina > 5 march 2011 is the Multiple Personality Disorder day.
beaten by a his dog > the red eyed canine in the story

not very reasonable but might be something later...

EDIT: found this: http://www.livestream.com/YellowCurtain
is it any part from a pervious BTYC episode?

btw, wasnt the diary EC was into in EP4 solvej's diary?

So March 5th 2011 it is... Hope that won't be the kickoff date... We'd have way too many farfetched theories by then Wink

The "The "No one on Qadhos tonight... still looking for him." tweet made me think of Lucian (a.k.a. Bobby Rondeau).

Uri; Yep it was Solvej's (a.k.a. Beatrix) diary.

Also, sidenote: I noticed that the qadhos site has some mal in the coding and the link to the 'the end' page is now broken. Not sure if that's significant or just a sign that we should move away from it.

In the mean time, I really need to refresh my memory concerning Ep. 4 Wink
