Edit: It occurs to me that I should probably attach addresses to these things.

Using Google maps, I think four is

the intersection between K street and 5th avenue. Not sure which building the focus is on, though.

I agree with four and think that five is

Edit: I don't think we can do anything with three, also forgot to mention that I got the exact same address for pic four using a different method.

I think the text on the page was changed to clear this up. It says the mark is at the POV of each location, so number one should just be the Martin Luther King Promenade, rather than the hotel in the background. The other locations should be fine.

So since power just came back on.

Any word about what was in the locations? Or do we not know yet?

I don't think we know yet I guess we can tell Carol and hope she 'looks' for us, because we don't have any communication with anyone else on the ground.

I'll ask around for somebody.

Also there was a tweet from the Apostate
Quote:
This is not just a game the Order is playing. There is significance. Connect the dots. Beware.


Doing that I tried mapping the general areas you guys gave on the thread. Here's a screencap of google maps with all the locations put on it.

My image is a bit different. I marked each location 1-5 and connected them with straight lines in consecutive order. I made an assumption that image III was taken within the SDCC.


*edited - this is a repost of the original file. I tweaked the location of 3rd dot, and completed the pentagram by connecting the 5th location to the 1st.

And we have a new change to the site! It now has links under some of the pictures and they're numbered so I assume we can find the rest fairly easily, but I haven't tried it out yet. I'll post the links in a second.

Edit:No luck with the numbers but here are the first three links:

Under pictureII http://bit.ly/oAD3Py
Under picture IV http://bit.ly/qU8Vf1

I don't know what we are supposed to do with these? I see the pentagram too, but it doesn't really tell us anything, lol.
I would guess that the "tale" images are being unlocked by people visiting the locations and we need all of the key words for... something? We don't have anywhere to submit answers yet.
Also, the questions don't seem very difficult unless there's a trick somehow.

I'll list my answers here. A tad bit sleepy so I may be off abit.

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
1=Dante
2=Souls
4=A sad and morbid lovers tale

(Question 4 is a little vague for my tastes. So I just put it all to be safe)

I would hazard a guess that we'll have to email him the answers?

I guess we'll have to see.
