[DEAD DROP] New deaddrop. "A phone. A special one".

The_Magic_Jesus at reddit has got apparently a hint to another DeadDrop.



https://www.reddit.com/r/10cloverfieldlane/comments/47sax1/the_next_clue/

I wonder, what he will find there.
P.S. Which song? "Children behaaave"?

YES YES YES!!!! Has anyone claimed that they're going to get it yet? There are people in Chicago on this forum, and I'm assuming R too.

Edit: I see that someone supposedly picked it up. That was fast. Awesome! I really hope that it has leads that we can all work to solve together.

And dang, Reddit is a tough place to navigate. There's a LOT of junk on there.

I previously said I didn't think there would be a dead drop in Chicago, because Howard stated he couldn't get up there. Not only am I glad I was wrong, but I'm glad they did it this way - so possible that Howard got someone else (maybe one of the bunker contractors) to plant the phone!

I'm kinda not liking how this ARG depends mostly on the findings of one or two people in the US, and you're stuck waiting to see when they're going to post what they got. It's like second hand smoking or something.

Yeah, I don't like it either.. It's cool, but also sort of frustrating when one person is in charge of everything.

I caught most of the livestream from the girl who found it, and here's what information we got:

    * Inside of the locker was a bag with the Eiffel tower on it.
    * All that was in the bag was an old-black style flip phone, with a temporary call plan on it, and she is not going to answer the phone.
    * On the phone there were two numbers programmed into the address book: one for Megan (that phone) and one for her father. Megan's (that phone's) number is: (312)533-6609. Don't call it, though. I'm posting it here because this game is for everyone, and it's only fair that everyone has the same information. But there's nothing to be gained by calling the number because the player that picked it up has it.
    * Howard 'called' the phone at 2:37pm yesterday/Thursday. That's the only log in the missed call book.
    * Howard left a voice mail in her inbox (password 4813, of course!) that said:
    "MEGAN, AS PROMISED - A PHONE JUST FOR YOU AND ME TO TALK. KEEP IT HIDDEN SO YOUR MOTHER DOESN'T (RUIN?) THIS TOO. I PUT MY NUMBER INTO YOUR CONTACTS. CALL ME AS SOON AS YOU CAN. I NEED TO HEAR YOUR VOICE, AND I GOTTA GET YOU OUT OF CHICAGO BEFORE EVERYTHING HAPPENS. YOUR LIFE IS IN REAL DANGER, RADIOGIRL. BUT I PROMISE TO KEEP YOU SAFE. CALL ME PLEASE. LOVE, DAD."
    * Someone recorded the voicemail, and posted it here: http://vocaroo.com/i/s1f7XQl5Uqeo
    * She didn't give us the number yet for Dad. I'd personally like it, so that anyone can try calling. She called the number twice and left a voicemail along the lines of "Dad, it's me, Megan." She also texted. No answers or response yet.
    * She checked inside the battery case for a note and there was none. She checked for a sim card and there was none. She checked in all of the menus and there is nothing out of the ordinary anywhere.


Unless she gives out the number for Dad, there doesn't seem to be anything for us to do but wait.

Edit: Cleaned it up to make this post easier to read.

I would imagine that "Howard" would be looking for a call specifically from "Megan's" phone, though. If we are to suspend disbelief and go with the narrative so far.

So now that she has the phone, what's the next step in the game?

I think she needs to text Howard.

You have a good point. What I'm imagining, though, is that they will set up an automatic message eventually, that everyone who calls in will get, like the old Tagruato number. I could be wrong.

I just can't get the bad taste out of my mouth. The one that feels really left out when you ask someone for information, they have the information, and they say "no way" when you ask for it. Um, are we not all in the same ARG here? You pick up a clue intended for everyone, and then withhold information because you're afraid that people will misuse it? That's not your call to make.

You know?

Read my post a few lines up. I outlined all of the steps that she took, which included that, as well as calling and leaving voicemails.

Sorry, thanks.
Do we assume there will be a third dead drop?

This drop would have been unnecessary if they would have made the FAPT chat birthday present question something we could have gotten. At that point Megan would have been able to talk to Howard and none of us would be waiting for the person who picked up the DD to give us the information.

I don't think we can really assume anything. I hope there isn't another DD after the way this one was handled.

What I'd love is another puzzle that everyone can work on and marvel at.

I'm just waiting for this whole "one man in charge" dead-drop thing to not work out so well. What happens when someone nihilistically just decides that they're going to throw the drop in a lake and say "f-off Bad Robot"?
