Re: /5ALTFRMS

Makes sense, which would mean the last word = Speculation, which it seems we would have to summarize, or perhaps we would have to write our own future? (ie. They worked together and solved all the problems.)

Not sure how to find/what to do with the other 6 forums though

OH. GUYS. We have to reflect on the challenges as we do them!

1. Invocation: We have to write an invocation to the "gods" - we/THEY wrote/are writing an Ep1c Poem.

Communion: Not so much a game as collective storytelling exercise. Or like e-lit. But it still looks like they were trying to get somewhere. They didn’t have stock trading or currency exchange games. They never made it past the fourth puzzle "re:Flection04" when the rules changed. They couldn't adjust, lost resolve and eventually devolved into "mystical stuff" and cryptic chants. Prayers.

Re: /5ALTFRMS

It kind of seems like these might each reflect an aspect of ARGs, and the players failed because they fell into a certain pitfall of that aspect- like exchange was puzzle-focused and they became too competitive, communion was collective storytelling-focused and they got too into writing mystic chants and stuff...

So maybe reflection got too focused on meta-discussion, remembrance on archiving, weird got too paranoid, and so on?

6. Administered by Xen, known as Co-MMune, abbreviated to Co, this yellow, communism-themed game/collective storytelling experience involved close cooperation between users. They never made it past the fourth puzzle "re:Flection04" when the rules changed. They couldn't adjust, lost resolve and eventually devolved into "mystical stuff" and cryptic chants and prayers.

Re: /5ALTFRMS

Continuing in the shoes of the inimitable donsoze, here's a write-up for 5:

5. Reflection. Administered by TEXT, known as re:Flection, and abbreviated to Re, this green, introspection-themed alternate reality game focused on meta-analysis and careful archiving. Almost immediately lost in walls of text, they posited magic circle on top of magic circle until they realized everything was a game. They became lost somewhere around node 3 as the frame fell away.

*edit: Changed Echo to TEXT. Don't know how I missed that one, thanks gasmoney

1. Vocation was in greyscale. Abbrv. Vo.

2. Players were unable to complete the level 00. Remembrance was abbrv. Me.

3. Players were unable to complete node 01. Weird was purple. And Weird was abbrv. Wd.

4. Players failed 02. Manifest was red white and blue and was abbrv. MFST.

8. Administered by Nex, known as Speculat1on, abbreviated to US, this game, characterized by red graphics started with isolated and cryptographic puzzle cracking, but soon became an involved collaborative storytelling endeavor in the sixth "nexus" in which the rules changed. With help from players past and present, WE rallied to solve puzzles that demanded creativity and verbal prowess. WE banded together and passed through the sixth nexus, drawing lessons from game players past. Though WE resorted to cryptic transmissions and verbose incantations to Nex, WE prevailed.
