In the email I recieved, the phrase to reply with was "Project Cloverfield". I did a quick google, and check it out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloverfield

It's what seems to be a completly different viral marketing page for a movie. It seems too much of a coincidence, even though they are what seems to be separate games.

Robert Hawkins

or

Desmond Hume

BTW, our responses serialize who we are, so JC can link forum accounts to email addresses.

That can't be, because the first name I had is the same as yours, "Robert Hawkins."

Coded language

We might possibly consider encoding our discussions to keep our sensitive information from prying eyes.

If anyone agrees, PM me and we'll figure out how to do this.

Remember, UnFiction is strictly an out of game resource. This is as much for the players' convenience as it is for the PMs. There is no need to encode discussions on this page because, as per our forum rules, stuff written here takes place outside the game's reality.

As for a potential JJ Abrams link, remember it also involved names from other (non-JJ) shows like Heroes (somebody might want to match all the names with their shows instead of just a selection). Different networks, different production crew, this is probably grassroots and almost definitely not even more Slusho. They seem to be going out of their way to reference other stuff with strong viral followings as a way of priming people interested regarding what to expect.

You're actually incorrect here. I've had conversations with Spacebass about this. There is nothing stopping a PM from reading these threads and reacting to them IG. The only TOS violation is when they start posting to the forum in an IG manner.

The puppetmasters have already used information in this thread "in game." There's a guy (or girl) sitting in our OOG chat room, as well, who is most likely a puppetmaster using proxy as well.

Oops, yeah...sorry, Ayanami Rei. Reread what I wrote and what other people are saying, and you're right. Seems like a bit of a burden curtain-wise to have the PM using this stuff, but that is their choice.

(Love the handle, by the way)

I'd still warn against going through too much effort to encode / hide information with forum posts even acknowledging that, however, since it'd make the barrier for entry for new players that much higher.

Mine was "Robert Hawkins" if you comply, or "Jake Green"

Both of whom are characters out of "Jerico", tv series...

It looks like the server sending out the emails may be a VPS.

Jake Green, Robert Hawkins, and Gray Anderson are all characters from Jericho.

I also got the choice between "Bravo" and "Argyle" in my e-mail. Odd.

Oh... and six years ago the World Trade Center and Pentagon were attacked, the event that sparked the creation of the National Clandestine Service (NCS).

EDIT: Whoa... we're idiots.

For the record, I'm just as dumb as everyone else. In my search to find out what Ekolock was, I found this.

And someone else had found it there. I take no credit.
