A Choice

Important! @Hotth has informed @bryanminear that he won’t be taking direct messages until the 21st of May.

@FleurDeNoire updated her profile with two cryptic tweets regarding “enlightened ones” in a game of survival and her official denouncement of @elliottgraves. These “enlightened ones” (which, presumably, were the ones FleurDeNoire was following) were originally @custron, @TandyQ, and @Dkelly1916 but was later updated with @bryanminear, @halosilver, @The_Sharper_Ian, and @NamastexD. Shortly thereafter, this tweet was added claiming the brother mentioned in Elliott Graves’ blog post did not exist. Direct messages were sent to these enlightened individuals, but their content (as of yet) has not been disclosed. @TheMabster also received a direct message from @Hotth, and @thecruxansata posted these updates speaking of a choice ARG players will have to make.

Is this the moment where ARG players will divide and make a difinitive choice? Who will you trust?

EDIT: The content of two DMs has been released.

For the record, my DM from @Hotth was:

“Whatever side you pick, the outcome does not change.”

I replied: “Who are you”

To which he said “I am the Historian”.

I asked “of what?” So far no response.

❤ @themabster

@bryanminear also received a DM from @Hotth. His conversation has been provided in the form of this image (best read from bottom to top).

More DMs after the break (including a follow up from @TheMabster, quite possibly the most revealing DM so far)!

EDIT 2: More DMs from @Hotth are showing up!

This one, from @The_Sharper_Ian is quite humorous:

ohhh burrrrn!

so i figured i’d give @hotth a try. he/she apparently doesn’t like my smartass attitude.

me: Is there truly nothing you hide?

hotth: Along my path, all is revealed, for I am the Historian.

me: What is the importance of 27?

(no answer for 5 minutes)

me: For one who hides nothing, you don’t seem very eager to answer my question.

hotth: Along my path all is answered. Your feet do not follow mine.

me: How do I follow your path?

hotth: My path is not a Choice. If you followed my path you would be Chosen.

and after that @hotth stopped following me, ending our conversation.

One from @HaloSilver which may, or may not, be still in progress:

So far… Only one response, but it was certainly interesting

I Said: “I know the outcome has been set. Help me see my path, historian.”

To which he replied: “Your choice MUST be your choice. My influence can cause… issues.”

So i asked: “Can you tell me what path has been set for you?”

Hotth: “I am the Scriptor Supremus.”

I will continue to ask more questions. Update soon.

His influence can cause issues?!

Update:

I asked: “Is anyone with you in Visum Cella?”

He said: “No.”

Sorry, he keeps surprising me by responding.

I asked: “Are you a neutral party, Historian?”

He Replied: “Yes.”

EDIT 3: Here’s part two of @TheMabster‘s conversation with @Hotth. It’s VERY intriguing!

Ok, here’s what I’ve gotten. In response to my last question “[Historian] of What?”

H: Simply, the Historian.

M: What side are you on?

H: I am not on a side. The difference between light and dark will ultimately rest on you.

M: How do I know which side to choose?

H: It is impossible for you to Know. Unless…

M: Unless? Unless what?

H: No. It will not be done. I cannot allow it.

M: What can you not allow?

H: The strands to tear.

M: The strands of the Loom? What will make them tear?

H: Interference.

M: Interference from whom? Elliott?

H: The others with Roles, and myself.

M: What others? Who are they?

H: I cannot say anything more at this point. When it is safe, you will learn more.

M: When it’s safe? When will that be?

H: The 21st.

M: What happens on that day?

~~~~That’s what I’ve gotten so far. Make of it what you will.

Important! After this DM @bryanminear informed us that @Hotth will not take any DMs until the 21st of this month.

EDIT 4:

Seems @The_Sharper_Ian has had a brief conversation with @FleurDeNoire. What could this mean?

whoa guys!

i just had a small conversation with @FleurDeNoire/Menhit/Ilana.

i sent the translation of “her” last post: “Viginti Necessarius, Iacobus.”

me: Twenty Needed, Jacob.

menhit: >blueprint 70%

me: I don’t understand. Greater than what blueprint?

me: Do you mean the Cabin blueprints?

menhit: >blueprint 72%

me: Does this mean I will be notified until >blueprint 100%?

and that’s all for now. more as it comes. if this is some kind of code, i don’t have the foggiest of how to decipher it.

#

menhit: >blueprint 72%

(this was the 2nd time)

me: If this is a code, perhaps you could provide a better hint.

menhit: >blueprint 73%

(then menhit posts with “Undeviginti Necessarius, Iacobus.”)

me: Nineteen Needed, Jacob. Are these countdowns related?

menhit: >blueprint 73%

now i’ve been silent with “her” long enough to post this reply, and gotten no more. so i’ll see where this takes me and keep you updated.

This will be updated as new information is released. Keep up the good work Lost ARGonauts!

  5. Hotth has started responding to me again. Will let you know how it turns out!

  6. So far… Only one response, but it was certainly interesting

  8. @Halosilver

    interesting, because hotth is an anagram of Thoth. here’s an excerpt from the wiki page on Thoth:

    “Thoth served as a mediating power, especially between good and evil, making sure neither had a decisive victory over the other.”

    • Sounds accurate, good find.

  9. not sure if this is the correct place to post, but @TheCruxAnsata posted “ducem sequor”.

    my latin is rusty, but i believe that’s “follow the leader”.

    since a crux is pretty much a cross, perhaps crossroads, i’m taking this account as the most impartial, and probably has the most valid clues. so the question now stands: who is the leader? Simeon Hobbes was first…

  10. Ok, here’s what I’ve gotten. In response to my last question “[Historian] of What?”

    H: Simply, the Historian.
    M: What side are you on?
    H: I am not on a side. The difference between light and dark will ultimately rest on you.

    ~~~~That’s what I’ve gotten so far. Make of it what you will.

  11. crux ansata means the cross with the handle. basically…. which would be an ankh

    any connection to tawereet?

  12. as of now, he is done accepting dm’s he told me hat we could not speak further until it is safe….so the 21st it is!

  13. Man. We are super sleuths! Go Team TwARG.

  14. I think this account is fake. Would a real ARG have bad wording and spell “Ilana” wrong?

  15. whoa guys!

    i just had a small conversation with @FleurDeNoire/Menhit/Ilana.

    i sent the translation of “her” last post: “Viginti Necessarius, Iacobus.”

    me: Twenty Needed, Jacob.

    menhit: >blueprint 70%

    me: I don’t understand. Greater than what blueprint?

    me: Do you mean the Cabin blueprints?

    and that’s all for now. more as it comes. if this is some kind of code, i don’t have the foggiest of how to decipher it.

  16. menhit: >blueprint 72%

    menhit: >blueprint 73%

    (then menhit posts with “Undeviginti Necessarius, Iacobus.”)

    me: Nineteen Needed, Jacob. Are these countdowns related?

    menhit: >blueprint 73%

    now i’ve been silent with “her” long enough to post this reply, and gotten no more. so i’ll see where this takes me and keep you updated.

    • here’s my just playing around, seeing what kind of responses i can get…

      me: So my silence leads to yours as well. Do you require my response?

      menhit: >blueprint 73%

      me: How can I help it reach 100%?

      me: >blueprint 74%

      me: Am I one of the 20 needed? When you find 19 more, will >blueprint be at 100%?

      menhit: correct

      me: Do we want to find 19 more? Is 100% >blueprint good? How can I help?

      menhit: >blueprint 74%

      me: What made me one of the 20? Deciphering your Latin messages to Jacob?

      (and so far no response. i’ll play with it some more and update when there’s more to tell)

      • menhit: >blueprint 74%

        me: Thank you for keeping me updated Ilana. I would like to help whatever it is you are trying to accomplish.

        me: duodeviginti necessarius?

        (now there are 2 updates to the public:

        “>blueprint 75%”

        followed by

        “PAUSE UNTILL FURTHER NOTICE”)

  17. the same “PAUSE UNTILL FURTHER NOTICE” was just sent to me in a message, same typo and all.

    best to do as “she” says for now.

    what i don’t get is how in the show, Ilana seems to be a follower of Jacob, but in that one conversation Menhit says she is Ilana and also that she is against Jacob.

  18. Half an hour ago, @Hotth tweeted “Semita rectus”, meaning the right or straight path. I replied: “Are we on the right path?” Hotth then started following me, and when I tried to send him/her a DM, I got a numbered file instead which I can’t open…but I think that’s just a Twitter malfunction, probably just means Hotth isn’t taking messages atm. Either way, it seems we’re barking up the right trees now…

  19. GETTING DMs FROM HOTTH, “The course is corrected”, will keep you guys updated if I get more…

  20. Having a veeeery interesting convo with Hotth now, more later…

  21. Me: We are on the right path?

    Hotth: The Course is Corrected.

    Me: In what way was the course wrong before?

    Hotth: Another had been given access to the
    Loom. His actions caused errors I was tasked with fixing.

    Me: Were you successful? And can you tell me anything about this other?

    Hotth: I have no information about the other, it has been Withheld. Yes. The outcome has been restored.

    Me: Withheld by whom? And what was the nature of these harmfull actions?

    Me: Hotth, who is withholding information?

    Hotth: Surely you can call me by my name?

    Me: I’m sorry, I don’t know your name. Will you tell me?

    Then he/she stopped following me.

  22. I think you’re wasting your time with this. Elliot graves already confirmed that the only official players (at least in his game, and i’m betting his game is the most likely to be official) were himself, @epithetalpha, @simeonhobbes, and the youtube channel, Who is Simeon Hobbes (WISH)

    • but i think taking everything Elliott Graves says at face value could be a mistake. the point of the game is misdirection and making choices. of course someone who wanted you to follow “his” side is going to tell you that the opposition isn’t valid.

      • Well he told us not to listen to @simeonhobbes, but that is because he sees him as the enemy. I agree that we shouldn’t believe every word he says, but i think he was trying to clear up all the fake ones. With something stirring so much immediate attention there are bound to be fake people trying to get some of it, and it doesn’t make sense to have so many. Plus Graves is giving us clues and hints that seem to actually be going somewhere, while the others just keep playing the “mysterious” card. I don’t know, i guess there is a chance that the other ones are important, but until @elliottgraves, @simeonhobbes, or @epithetalpha seems to care about them, i won’t worry about them either.

  23. but there are also those telling us not to trust what he says. at this point, i’m not sure who to trust, but i’m not counting anything out.

  24. I just DM’ed Menhit: “Who did you lie to?” and she responded: “prtcl02”

    Help me decode! Im coming up with nothing.

  25. I guess it’s good to know there are people who will keep an eye on it, and i’ll eat my hat along with my words if these others are important, but I’ll be grateful people are paying attention

  26. the amount that the blueprint is completed is how many people are following… everyone is obsessed with following; they are trying to gather followers – the idea is influence picking sides, religious ideals…
