It's not just missing dots. Remember, the base of the "i" is missing as well. In case you're wondering, ...._ in morse code is 4. Does that mean anything to anyone?


Odd.... sMooTh WuN just pointed out that there were 4 missing dots in the letter and 4 missing numbers in the barcode...


4 might be pretty important...but that could just be a coincidence.

EDIT: 4x3 also equals 12, not sure how important that is though.

But i think this whole morse code thing is nothing...

That could also translate to

AICE

I agree, this isn't fitting....

EDIT: I wonder what would happen if you scan the barcodes.... But then again I know little to nothing about them.

To the eighteen regular months the Maya appended a special five-day month called Wayeb composed of 5 days which were considered unnamed and unlucky.

After Seven Ahaw, Nineteen Pohp, the next day was Eight Imix, Zero Wo.


i know someone already mention the "two men" thing but this definitely has to be a clue.

we need some sort of starting point other than a couple of pictures..


EDIT: so if im readng correctly, the days go:

Day 1.) one imix
Day 2.) zero pohp
Day 3.) two ik
Day 4.) one pohp... and so on..

till ...

Day 14.) thirteen ben
Day 15.) twelve pohp
Day 16.) one ix
Day 17.) thirteen pohp
Day 18.) TWO MEN

... and so on


this is rather confusing so am i wrong with this order?

Yeah, i pointed out two men, but i believe mine was a mere coincidence.

Also, yes, i absolutely agree with you, it is EXTREMELY hard to solve puzzles with a letter and some meaningless barcodes.

I don't think so.
Look at all the missing text.
misspelled letters, punctuation, capitals.
This could be our next clue.

Exactly. I mean who would leave such a cryptic message in the mail and then say he's closing down?
Noone. NOONE would waste that much money on a stamp for that.

I'm gonna try and decipher this....

Or a gamejack. Maybe if he would explain why he thinks there's some connection between the two.

Personally, I think that we're just looking at an ARG that hasn't been finished. It being a clue IS a possibility but i really doubt it...

But I'll keep playing just in case.

(EDIT: Gamejack is a very logical explanation also)

There is not one period in the "philosopher's" farewell. Connection?

Not sure. The whole thing looks like it's been written by an MMORPG noob.

Also notice that the link is only partially linked.
What could that possibly portray?
