After trying every URL connected with every Greek Mythological Sea Deity under the sun, Anne_Wintermute proved her puzzle prowess once again by finally finding Niel’s missing page. The word we had been searching for was PISCES!
Here Niel reveals his joke with the red herring and reports a worrying experience of being followed. His involvement in I.Theta is confirmed as he specualtes on it’s connection to the shocking infomation he overheard.
Lastly a link to an email received on the 8th May may explain Niel’s disappearance – a new character on the scene that goes by the name of ‘r33pich33p’ hints both at knowing significant information about Niel and his involvement in I.Theta, and warns Niel that he is in danger.
The tone of the email is both vaguely threatening yet obviously intends to warn Niel, making the intentions of ‘r33pich33p’ ambiguous at best. An email address provides a point of contact and many players have emailed in the hope of further contact with this new entity.
‘r33pich33p’ or Reepicheep is, of course, the famous swash-buckling mouse from C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia, explaining the name of the email link page ‘mouse’.
So all roads seem to be pointing back to I.Theta. Which is funny because this was the ONE topic that Aidoneus warned us away from him. Yet it his intel that lead Elliott to Nathan’s papers and us to here.
I don’t know about you but I’m beginning to wonder about his intentions…
