No idea what to try at the Ravenwood login.

But I guess that confirms the Jericho connection.
Unless Tygr20 created all the content Wink

There's a lot to go through.

Welcome to unfiction, xwarp!

Many of us have been hoping for interaction with Tooman for months now. I'm happy to see he found you. Please share his address with us.

Do you know if other Jericho fans were contacted as well?

Thanks!

eta: What I meant to ask is, "When you say that "many others received this email yesterday", who are they? Are they all Jericho fans? "

Another Jericho link.

In Jericho, Ravenwood is the name of a private security firm that the government out contracted to to help security. They are corrupt, and basically go around looting towns and killing people.

Just thought I'd point it out.

while rereading the e-mail:

i am wondering, and this may be totally off base, i wonder if tooman is referring to you all here that have done a lot to figure this out, in the line, "now you must find them show them what you have found, tell them they must unlock the sound, and more importantly, if they cannot open the door, then this cannot begin."

i noted this as the majority of those that received this e-mail are just getting into this.

any ideas?

Hi all.

Fascinating reading here. I received the same email as xwarp (Hi X!) and a number of other Jericho fans and am just starting to make sense of what you all have been diligently plugging away on for some time now it seems.

Still digesting all that has come before and like X have been all over this board reading, thinking, sighing, and reading some more.

I'm pretty new to ARGs but I do like puzzles. The harder the better. What I might be able to do is shed light on the Jericho concepts.

RAVENWOOD

  • Fictitious govt contractor made up of former soldiers (a la the real world Blackwater)
  • Insignia looks like a shield - Red field with yellow border and banner saying Ravenwood and black raven on red field
  • Brought in by DOD during Operation Iraqi Freedom to help military with manpower issues - but through one of the characters on Jericho we learn that its activities might have been less than above board while in Iraq
  • Suspected by the FBI of supplying weapons to terrorists or opposition forces, most likely in Iraq and Afghanistan
  • Supposively hired by DHS after 23 nuclear bombs went off around the US to assist with security operations
  • Specific unit encountered by the citizens of Jericho, KS were in theory hired to protect the governor of Nebraska (but somehow they ended up marauding the towns of western KS); this unit is lead by Goetz
  • While the citizens of Jericho successfully deterred Goetz and his group in a stand off at one of the town's bridges, the rogue group moved on to Jericho's larger neighbor New Bern and it is believe to have caused a lot of destruction of that town's facilities.
  • There is conflicting information about exactly how much damage Ravenwood actually did to New Bern. There is clearly some structural damage to the town hall, but one of the New Bern citizens admits to the group from Jericho at a local trading post that their loses in the confrontation were only 3 killed; 8 injured; and Ravenwood drove off with a truckload of diesel fuel. New Bern is a town of 10,000 and fairly well armed. The Ravenwood unit only consisted of about 20-25 men. There is quite a bit of speculation that the New Bern sheriff Constantino used the arrival of Ravenwood as a convenient excuse to seize control of the town and escalate hostilities against the better situated and resourced Jericho (unlike New Bern - Jericho has fertile farmland for crops and livestock, a clean water supply, and a very large salt mine - all critical for survival after the recent nuclear attack). The eventual battle between Jericho and New Bern is where season 1 abruptly ended.

Yes, I agree that the email with a link to unfiction (not best practice, btw, imho), is 2man's way of bringing the two communities together. And, with everyone's help, we can "unlock the sound" (that weird reverb on the dearther nodes), find the "door".. open it... and finally, get this started. Smile

1st post, be gentle. it seem's that "red" ie red cloud, red earth. & "green."ie green door development, from jennings & rall & green streak observed in sky, from sakanas herald. to the green family of jericho.is a common theme. also, brian archer was not a character in season 1 of jericho.

I swiped this off a Jericho board at TV.com from someone called Soylent Yellow (haha)

In the offices section they make references to working with all 3 US factions - Cheyenne (West) Columbus (East) and Texas.

Pretty sure this site if official since it contains reference similar to the known coordinates of the bomb targets (shown on Hawkins laptap and on COUNTDOWN webisodes).

WYOMING

Cheyenne office is in a martial law area - no address.

http://www.jenningsandrall.com/html/index.php?cle=1864694

TEXAS

Austin Texas (at last word was sitting out the dispute between East and West) though they still reference USA. So they arent declaring independence.

http://www.jenningsandrall.com/html/index.php?cle=1630013

Jennings & Rall 4900 Old Manor Road Austin, TX 78723 USA

This is a real address for something called "Trouble Maker Studios" LOL!

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%224900+Old+Manor+Road%22+Austin%2C+TX+78723+USA++studios

Will TEXAS be causing some "trouble"?

____________________________________________________

CALIFORNIA

Jennings & Rall Financial Division 1436 Oak Street Sacramento, CA 95814 USA

This is the fictional address for the Bradford family on "Eight is Enough" that starred Dick Van Patten in the 80s. Will the number EIGHT be factor?

http://eie.davesfunstuff.com/0814.htm

____________________________________________________

HAWAII:

Temporary Shipbuilding Services
711 Kapiolani Blvd Honolulu, Hawaii 96813 USA

This the real life address a large office complex that resembles one of the designs being tossed around after 9-11 for the new World Trade Center as it resembles an hand with middle finger raised. Though the middle building is shorter (For obvious reasons, I gues? LOL!)

http://www.loopnet.com/xNet/MainSite/Listing/Profile/Profile.aspx?LID=15242621

http://z.about.com/d/politicalhumor/1/0/2/E/newwtc.jpg

711 is also the date of the London Terrorist bombings in 2005 - which is the most likely reason for the producers choosing the address.

_________________________________________

ALASKA

1577 C Street, Suite 1000 Anchorage AK 99501 USA

Appears to be some kind of government office building with union, consumer, native American groups. Cant find references to Suite 1000. Does year 1577 mean anything? Nothing obvious.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1577

_________________________________________

DUBAI - United Arab Emirates

Moosa Tower Sheikh Zayed Road P.O. Box 9111 Dubai

This one contains the number 911. Nothing else sticks out.

__________________________________________

CHINA (2 addresses)

Block 11, Li Jing City,76 District, Bao'an, Shenzhen, Guangdong, China

Theres some kind of technology company in room 509.

http://www.flxpcb.com.cn/Contact%20Us.htm

401-4-56, Meisheng Road,Waigaoqiao FREE TRADE, Shanghai, China

First 4 numbers add up to 9 and the last 2 add up to 11. Another 911 reference,first address also includes 11.

This is a Japanese company TOKUYAMA with an office in China that also has an office in HIROSHIMA.

The ALASKA office is probably a reference to J&R being awarded the contract to restore the Alaskan Oil Pipeline (canon - Jericho ep 1.13 Black Jack - written in the news section of the blackboard at the Black Jack Fairgrounds trading center).
