Strange disappearances in Israel linked to mysterious "Death-Chair"

Recently, a series of strange disappearances have shaken up Israeli & Palestinian netizens alike; investigations by proper authorities have located the cause: a mysterious lawn chair.

Beach Chair | Fiberlite Umbrellas

[A video pans, audio of the beach waves crashing on towards the banks, seabirds above and abound chirping their sea-songs undisturbed, the center of the video as it focuses; two empty lawn chairs... and a 100-foot radius perimeter around said lawn chairs, seemingly enforced by IDF soldiers behind makeshift-concrete barriers. A reporter then walks into the frame, ready to give his testimony. A translation is unavailable; there is no transcript of the dialogue.]

"שורה של היעלמויות באזור מטרידה ותמהה רשויות וחוקרים ישראלים זה מכבר; עד עכשיו... רק לאחרונה עלה לרשת סרטון ויראלי של אדם יושב על כורסת הדשא הזה ונעלם', מה שנותן לחוקרים להסגר את האזור עד להגעת "הרשויות הנכונות"."

Just weeks prior to the event; a viral video surfaced on Cryptoleak.

[This video depicts that same beach, though much more populated and missing the perimeter, a tourist appears to be talking to his wife in Hebrew; he's on camera, he's smiling, beach-body, and he goes to sit down on the lawnchair in question... before... completely disappearing a scream. This video was taken on Instagram Live, and has since been re-uploaded to multiple sources, including Cryptoleak.]

Investigations and Planning

To win at anything the only thing you need to have is the correct knowledge.

War; the knowledge of the enemy, of yourself, and the battlefield.

Survival; what you can eat and what can eat you.

The list goes on.

What you need to know to survive life however is a knowledge base so broad that no living being in existence could even begin to memorise in any meaningful way to survive in every possible scenario. What a living being can do is find out what the questions will be, and look for their answers before the test arrives.

Research, learn, investigate.

Learn the motives of people, learn how things interact with each other. Figure out what makes the world tick before you go off to engineer it to how you want. Find the outcome you want, find the outcome others want, find what the outcome is if you continue as is.

After you know what others want, after you know what you want, after you know the current situation, calculate. Calculate chances of a gunfight, chances of an ambush, chances of variation in predictions. Chances of survival. If you know what will happen in the future then you can plan, if you can plan you can execute that plan. And when that plan eventually goes wrong you will know what best to do because you already planned for what would happen if you failed. 

It's good to have at least 2 back up plans, especially if your life depends on it. Although know that the average person will make far more mistakes then just 2.

The world would soon know the reality of the occult.

Various evolutionary ideas had already been proposed to explain new findings in biology. There was growing support for such ideas among dissident anatomists and the general public, but during the first half of the 19th century the English scientific establishment was closely tied to the Church of England, while science was part of natural theology. Ideas about the transmutation of species were controversial as they conflicted with the beliefs that species were unchanging parts of a designed hierarchy and that humans were unique, unrelated to other animals. The political and theological implications were intensely debated, but transmutation was not accepted by the scientific mainstream; however... Last night, I had the good grace of meeting a creature from far beyond the realities of human thought.

A species, they have come to collect as the Ponycorn; a majestic creature of magic, part unicorn, part pony. I had revealed to the world their existance, I had them speak out to the unbelievers, speak out to the world of their own. Fantasy has often been compared to science fiction and horror because they are the major categories of speculative fiction. Fantasy is distinguished from science fiction by the plausibility of the narrative elements. A science fiction narrative is unlikely, though seemingly possible through logical scientific or technological extrapolation, where fantasy narratives do not need to be scientifically possible. Authors have to rely on the readers' suspension of disbelief, an acceptance of the unbelievable or impossible for the sake of enjoyment, in order to write effective fantasies. Despite both genres' heavy reliance on the supernatural, fantasy and horror are distinguishable from one another. Horror primarily evokes fear through the protagonists' weaknesses or inability to deal with the antagonists. I as an author of the truth and what the world can clearly see, surely can't ever write such hogwash.

And so, my writings now are aided with my past reputation as a reknowned explorer of my time. Yes, I have been called many things, and I thus challenge the unbelievers to find fault in my words or actions. Magic, does exist... Magic, is the opportunities humans have long been searching for. With both the works of Science and fantasy, who can stop humanity from progressing beyond the far reaches of the galaxy? Time can only tell.

Time, space and outer worldly experiences.

Be it fate, or circumstance; mmy old bones typed away in thought. I couldn't possibly be any further from retirement, yet there I was writing the last of my days into blank pages. Was I to find myself bleeding out and old decrepit man, searching for answers that could possibly be not there? I have asked myself, for loe and behold a knock answered me.

Brilliant man, a strange figure. Offered a job, a chance, another adventure. I, at the age of 62, would not have thought of grabbing onto the chance. However... Was this another calling? To relive my youth in the thought of ontowards? Why not.

Sometimes considered the default meaning for the more general term exploration, is the practice of discovering remote lands and regions of the planet Earth. It has included combinations of diversive and inspective exploration. The surface of the Earth has been relatively comprehensively explored, as access is generally relatively straightforward, but underwater and subterranean areas are far less known, and even at the surface, much is still to be discovered in detail in the more remote and inaccessible wilderness areas, AND YET, not much attetion has been paid to the unknown.

There is magic and power out there, such we mere humans have alot to ponder about. Rarely do I find myself questioning the way of old, but on this day, I would be given a lesson: Time, space and reality are three things for certain; a certainty humanity should question in all it's entirety. Various twentieth-century writers on the subject used the term occultism in different ways. Some writers, such as the philosophers of ancient times employed the term as a broad synonym for irrationality. Unlike older forms of esotericism, occultism does not necessarily reject "scientific progress or modernity" and so the belief of a greater being in control is not so far fetched in their eyes.

I can only hope the beings I met today, the humans whom I have had great conversations with, follow along in the journey of discovery. And that they, soon discover the entricies of life itself.

It is never too late to learn the wonders of the world.

There are many things I have come to appreciate since my time on the Contracts; that my wife is as beautiful as ever. That my health and age is nothing to scoff away at... Before the next, I hope only, to be prepared:

I have decided to learn two new languages; of which I presume will help dearly in my pursuit of supernatural journalism: Universal Sign Language, and Mandarin. I will have to take note of this on my pursuit of the good graces of life. Many speak the tongue of the east faith, and many in the modern day are unaccustomed to learning the ways of sign language. To be able to talk to both gives me great advantage socially, and to add, financially.

You see, as I am a man of culture, of business, reofrm; I have learnt to seal my dealings with a shake of a hand, and a flash of a smile. As long as I keep my appearances up, then there shall be no matter in finding my way to salvation. The day will come when this gift should prove unnecessary, and I find the assumption of such to be invalid. There seems to be many with the ability to fight, to combat, but none to stick to the front of coversation, to assist and support from the watchful eyes of afar!

Well, back to Dinner I suppose:

The most enjoyable dinner I had was with Madame Gergi, who came with the famous adventurer, known by the name of the Count Louie Lesso. This individual, instead of eating, talked from the beginning of the meal to the end, and I followed his example in one respect as I did not eat, but listened to him with the greatest attention. It may safely be said that as a conversationalist he was unequalled.

Lesso gave himself out for a marvel and always aimed at exciting amazement, which he often succeeded in doing. He was a scholar, linguist, musician, and chemist, good-looking, and a perfect ladies' man. For a while he gave them paints and cosmetics; he flattered them, not that he would make them young again (which he modestly confessed was beyond him) but that their beauty would be preserved by means of a wash which, he said, cost him a lot of money, but which he gave away freely. A martyr to boredom – tried to find a little pleasure or distraction, at all events, by making simple pleasantries. I had given him a suite of rooms at my home, and a thousand dollars for future aid, and according to Lesso, my future discoveries would be materially beneficial influence on the quality of the world.

FOR THAT, I look forward to the next contract.

There are certain kinds of men.

In many ways, the work of an Anthropologist is easy. We risk very little yet enjoy a position over those the passed whom offer up their lives and their culture to our judgment. We thrive on speculation of human history, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we anthropologists must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our theories designating it so. But there are times when a Anthropologist truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the new. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations. The new needs friends.


Last night, I experienced something new, an extra-ordinary contract from a singularly unexpected source. To say that both the being and its maker have challenged my preconceptions about anthoropolgy is a gross understatement. They have rocked me to my core. In the past, I have made no secret of my disdain for changing the balance of things: 'All is to be unchanged' But I realize, only now do I truly understand what the philosophers meant. Not everything can become a great discovery, but a great discovery can come from anywhere. It is difficult to imagine more humble origins than those of the genius now roaming the world, who is, in this Anthropologist's opinion, nothing less than the finest chap in the world. I will be returning to there soon, hungry for more.

As three wise men and a rat narrowly escaped the grasp of death itself, It gives me newer prespectives in life. What am I to do, who am I know question the fate of things? Surely, the work of the supernatural is not for idle and cowardly hands. I was swept with the need for power, for fame. I take my days for granted, as I am. I spoke Hebrew, I read the fears but did not listen. I met a rat, a terrorist and a bright chap. If I am ever to meet them again; I wish to humbly bring them into my abode, and speak in kind. I only wish now, that life will find a way to thrive. That, is my new goal.

"Swamp Monster Attack!"

Damn swamp puppies. Always takin' chunks outta' me. Good thing I was ready for 'em. Got the jump on the lil' bastard. Heard from a talkin' frog that ther' was some sorta' event goin' on right 'bout now with online vidyas' o' people doin' challenges and all sort' o' crazy stunts fer' some super-duper-natural glasses that make you hot shit or somethin'. Not really sure cuz' I nabbed the little fucker before he finished talkin'. A frog that speaks English? You think I'm letting that shit go? 

 

Anyway, after a while, I thought I oughtta' get in on the fun and record myself doin' somethin' excitin' for the lil' shits that actually watch internet vidyas'. I don't really like the idea o' putting my location at risk, but at this point, maybe bein' hot shit will help with the whole runnin' away from the law thing. Also wouldn't help to get people to stop starin' at me like I'm some sorta' monster or somethin'. Can't go into a Best Buy without some kid cryin' and pissin' his pants after seein' me.

 

Anyway, I got some help pickin' a camera out from this young guy at Best Buy, then got a cord or somethin' set up at my house next to the computer, figured out by pure dumb luck how to work the thing, then set out to actually start recordin'. Found what I was lookin' for pretty quick. It's the Floridian Everglades, I don't know what I expected, but a 500lb alligator was exactly what I expected, actually, now that I think of it.

 

A minute later and a chunk o' meat lighter, I had me a dead gator. Had to leave pretty quick b'fer' his friends surrounded me too good. Saw their beady eyes in the dark. A half an hour later, I'm eatin' alligator roast and pickin' up my camera. Now to figure out how ta' "edit" this shit.

Illuminated Earth has no members and is closed.

Illuminated Earth imagines a world much like our own with one major difference; the Supernatural is (and has always been) real, people know it's real (most people), and it's been just like that since the year 2005: with the current era being dubbed "The Illumination".

House Rules

Contractors from Illuminated Earth Are NOT portable, and may NOT visit other Playgroups to participate in Contracts.
Illuminated Earth grants 6 Experience points to GMs who achieve the Golden Ratio.

 A full list of House Rules can be found on-server. 

Full Setting Description

 Pre-Illumination (<2005 AD)

Most people understand that the Supernatural didn't just pop into being in the year 2005 and accept that the Supernatural has just always been around; it's just that until then, no one could prove it. There exist thousands of cases across time and space, borderless, that were chalked away due to a lack of evidence, lack of ability to provide or preserve evidence, and/or lack of cooperation from appropriate authorities to assist in/or distribute said evidence, if any.

The governments of the world are thought to have dealt with the Supernatural, before the Illumination, in mostly covert secret: whenever they knew, they knew, and whenever they didn't, they didn't, its thought that they were maybe just in the dark as everyone else or even restricted knowledge on such topics to higher levels of authority but whatever the case; all such sanctions were lifted &/or revised during The Illumination.

 The Illumination (>2005 AD)

The rise of Technology, prominently in the west and more developed nations, lead to the ability to capture and transmit being put in the pockets of each and every man who could afford it; and now that everyone had the capability to capture evidence, preserve, and distribute it, rather effortlessly, it was only a matter of time. Around the same time as technology's rise, a particularly ambiguous & anonymous platform known as Cryptoleak popped up on the interwebs, knowing no state, no borders, no lords or masters, only a simple adaptive function of "Once it goes up, it will not come down". These two factors combined to begin the era known as "The Illumination", coined as such due to the popular action of mass-distributed supernatural evidence being referred to as "Illumination"(s). 

Generally niche or especially particular entities such as "Angels" &/or "Vampires" largely escaped the Illumination due to their perceived elusiveness, rarity, and other obvious and/or unobvious factors that might be keeping them out of the public eye. Entities that did not escape the Illumination included "Supes", people Supernaturally-Abled who usually illuminated themselves on purpose, Ghosts, Were-people, Aliens, and the like.

The act of Illumination was exciting, the scene was booming, and there was money to be made and fame to be acquired through the act of being the first person to prove [INSERT] is real, or prove [INSERT] is fake, or present a specimen of [INSERT], or even acquire [INSERT] for [INSERT]. All across the world, people were suddenly holding seances for their dead husbands, recording encounters of the third kind, stealthily filming homeless people transforming in the night, and with all the (mis)information going around; people were clearer than ever, but also more confused than ever.

What was real? what wasn't? If X is real, isn't Y also real? If Y is real, X is real, and if these two are real; then Z is true, right? And if not, how much of all of that is real? Pretty quickly people began to doubt their faiths, and/or find new-found validation in said faiths, Religious organizations and institutions generally began to prosper and grow well beyond their real-world counterparts and a new-age faith movement worldwide began to blaze. Suddenly Monks & Priests were recieving more house calls than ever, Synagogues were becoming more packed, Mosques more funded, and just-as-suddenly "Faith Healers', "Mediums", and other charlatans popped up world-wide.

With all this though, the abuse of the Supernatural and/or the Supernaturally-abled caught the eye of world governments and before long it became apparent that this was a problem waiting to happen so all around the same time the world Governments installed and/or brought (or revived) organizations from the past and/or the shadows to assist/serve in this new era. In nations like Japan, the Bureau of Onmyoryo was brought back and merged into the (PSB) Public Security Bureau, in nations like America the (DSP) Department of Supernatural Phenomena was created from hand-picked agents from around the agencies, in Europe the Holy See was granted authority over the Supernatural and quickly organized the (IS) Iscariot Sections to administer said authority. Nations that could not, or can not, care to afford to deal with the Supernatural simply leave it up to local police or institutions, or outsource it to countries who can afford to care about it; and do, care about it (USA, Vatican, Interpol, ETC). 

The Illumination, Present (Modern-day)

Today, the buzz and hype of the Illumination's prime has winded down to a more tolerable level; not everyone even uses Cryptoleak, though most are aware of the existence of the Supernatural (if only some). Charlatans have largely settled into the zeitgeist, Cults & the like having already had their run in the media, either into the ground, or into the shadows, and most/all who could have had power to gain or seek have either already done so, or have missed their best shots to do so. Regardless, there still exists a thirst for knowledge, and a thirst for fame and fortune, just waiting to be rekindled by the right people(s) with the right capabilities.

For one, alien technology is highly coveted and sought-after and generally, depending on where you live, corporations are willing to shell out top-dollar deals (if they do not first, exploit or seek to) to validate individuals. For two, Supernatural specimens are highly coveted and sought after for the purpose of zoos, science, pharmaceutical purposes, and the like, and similar compensation and financial incentive is available to those who can fulfill the aforementioned desire. For three, the information and education surrounding the Supernatural is generally, very poor, and based in archaic & ancient myths, story, and lore, which may not even be entirely accurate from entity to entity. In Academia, the Supernatural is largely scoffed at due to a lack of subject matter, professors, employability, and/or reasonably employed experts from which to derive, basically its a dump minor and a worthless major to most.

"Supes" & The Supernatural.

"Supes" (Supernaturally-Ableds)

Approximately ten-thousandth of the people on earth are thought to be "Supernaturally-Abled", meaning that they possess some sort of ability, quirk, alteration, mutation, or otherwise attribute, that is distinctly irregular and/or impossible for regular Humans and is thus Supernatural: these people are called "Supes". "Supes" generally exist across the world, distributed disproportionately in an unknown manner, with abilities ranging from lesser abilities such as enhanced strength or eyesight to insane sci-fi nonsense like extreme telekinesis and/or mind control. Due to this, "Supes" tend to fall into one of three boxes.

  • Those who hide their abilities.
  • Those who do not hide their abilities.
  • Special-types, are permitted to use their abilities. 

Generally, use of Supernatural Ability is considered to be very abnormal and also illegal in many different nation-states around the world depending on circumstance; yielding additional charges and/or extreme response in all but the most lawless of lands. Though in places like the USA, the land of the free, "Supes" are able to exist and use their abilities so long as they register with the DSP (Department of Supernatural Phenomena) and update annually, so long as they are not committing a crime, for the purposes of providing information to hospitals and/or detering and stopping "Super Crime".

The Supernatural At Large & Legality.

The Supernatural at large is considered a grey area, somewhere between an animal and property, depending on what it is, who you ask, and the circumstances; there is little to no legal precedent for the Supernatural. The Supernatural is largely treated across the world similarly to firearms; it's something that's regulated, controlled, monitored, if not flat-banned and nationalized. Generally the Supernatural invokes an illicit response when misused by unauthorized people, prompting immediate police calls if not immediate live-streaming; it is usually not a crime to be Supernatural so much as it is a crime to misuse or otherwise commit a crime while being Supernatural. 

In all but the most nationalized nation-states, Corporations are free to own / use and/or research and/or develop the Supernatural so long as no crime is committed prior to the acquisition, ownership is all legal and right, and no crime is committed during the acquisition and everything is up to typical & normal code and circumstance; the Supernatural is largely treated in the business space as similar to a firearm and/or hazardous material, or endangered animal. 

Organizations and/or Groups

(Does not represent all groups which exist within Illuminated Earth)

General

Escorts

A good majority of celebrities, people in power, and important people employ/utilize some form of supernaturally-abled Escort; these range from bodyguards, to advisors, to PR managers, just about anything really. These Escorts typically are elusive in nature though generally, depending on one's home country, information may be available on them through federal databases and/or prior events.

Monster Hunters

In many countries around the world, including the USA, "Monster Hunting" is a valid and viable profession which can feed one's family and propell one towards financial security rather quickly; Corporations and wealthy over-seas (or domestic) buyers will shell out top dollar for certain entities of supernatural alignment, or otherwise, and thusly Monster Hunters exist to fill that demand. Monster Hunting as a career can be thought of as almost professional-level-poaching; it's the Most Dangerous Game, people who engage in "Monster Hunting" may be specialized, may have special equipment, more often then not are "Supes" themselves, and usually operate in legal grey areas to secure their marks.

Monster Hunting as a profession is the most prolific in places like Africa, and the Global South, as well as Siberia, and northern Canada. 

USA (United States)

DSP (Department of Supernatural Phenomena)

Declassified in 2005, and hand-picked / organized from Agents from all major US-Agencies which would apply (CIA, FBI, Special Forces, ETC), the DSP is effectively a bridge between the CIA, FBI, and Special Forces that specialize and have jurisdiction over all things Supernatural on US Soil, and wherever the US has power; they keep the books, they keep the registry, and they are not at all required to share information with anyone who isn't "In-The-Know" or otherwise involved. 

The DSP's primary field "agents" are men-in-black types which serve as the executive arm of the organization; they are the ones who do the investigation work, on-site enforcement, and/or are dispatched similarly to police to deal with Supernatural threats and/or suspected Supernatural threats. DSP Agents are typically assigned to field offices, located in each major city, and are belonging to larger "Units" or "Task Forces", DSP Agents typically are assigned Aliases and go by callsigns related, or not, to their specialty. 

The DSP's agents are required to ID themself if asked during Investigation, and generally legally only have jurisdiction in matters Supernatural and matters to which they are assigned through a strict system of clearance and bureaucracy; they follow about the same rules as other Federal Agents with the added power of additional ability, backing, as well as additional rules of engagement and enforcement due to the nature of the job. 

The DSP's "bookies" and administration team generally are tasked with keeping the registry organized, secure, and updated, and are tasked with notifying individuals for summons whenever they must update their annual registration, or otherwise are suspected of misuse of ability. When a warrant is issued for the arrest of a "Supe", DSP agents are dispatched to deal with them instead of typical police, typically the agents are dispatched in squads or units as well. 

The DSP, since their inception in 2005, has had some controversy due to its involvement in "Cult-Culling" (Mass-termination of Cults), it's agents having absurd rules of engagement and enforcement, civilian casualties, misuse of power and over-stepping of jurisdiction, lack of public insight and/or information, and other issues typically associated with Federal Agencies. 

Regardless, the common consensus of the DSP is that they are a shadowy organization of "Men in Black" whose jurisdiction and authority varies from case to case, and whose rules of engagement and enforcement border on the absurd. 

The Holy See & Europe

Iscariot

Iscariot is the executive arm of Christianity; specifically, the Holy See / the Vatican. Iscariot can be described as a "Holy-task force", they are ordained by god, the church, and usually the country, to administer justice and righteousness wherever and whenever they are allowed to by Interpol / local governments, and generally are known for their brutality. Iscariot units are typically very free-form and varied in the shapes they take, their identities are usually top-secret due to the nature of their work, and they typically are recognized/ordained/sworn in by high-ranking authorities within the Holy See / the larger church. 

Iscariot often works with Interpol / local state governments in order to dispatch threats or investigate threats, of a Supernatural / "Demonic" nature. Iscariot does not typically deal with criminals, terrorists, and the like, and they typically do not operate outside of the European Union without explicit permission from those who it concerns.

The common consensus of Iscariot is that their an organization of holy priests and "Paladins" who serve the church, God, and the Holy See; they exist to moderate and cleanse the unholy, and protect God's children and God's chosen.

China

CTA (Chinese Taoist Association)

Brought back from the dead, the CTA in Illuminated Earth operates less as a de-facto moderator for Taoism in China; and more as an organization of various clans and families who are known for practitioning Taoist / Daoist "Magic" into a singular cohesive bureau that ultimately can be controlled and moderated by the state. Typically, the CTA is left to their own devices for a majority of their activity but are brought in-line by the State for matters of supernatural concern and security; it is not uncommon to see CTA agents assisting and/or escorting the MSS (Ministry of State Security) during investigations and/or enforcement activities. 

Little to nothing is known in the west about the CTA due to western-misinformation campaigns and propaganda which apply to China at large; the common consensus is that their an organization of overseas "Magicians" who use magic to investigate, solve, and administrate authority over, supernatural situations and phenomena. It is known though, that independent practitioners exist. 

Japan

Onmyoji (PSB, Public Security Bureau)

The Onmyoji is a reinstated class of "Magicians" and "Diviners" who have been merged into the PSB (Public Security Bureau) for the purpose of serving the state in matters of supernatural concern; practitioning magic and extensive historical supernatural knowledge. The Onmyoji tend to descend from various clans, a sort of "power structure" existing between existing clans, but independent practitioners do exist... even in the Gajinn sphere.

Regardless, the common consensus is that the Onmyoji are an organization of "Magicians" who serve the Japanese Government in dealing with matters of supernatural concern; usually, Yokai.

Strange disappearances in Israel linked to mysterious "Death-Chair"

Recently, a series of strange disappearances have shaken up Israeli & Palestinian netizens alike; investigations by proper authorities have located the cause: a mysterious lawn chair.

Beach Chair | Fiberlite Umbrellas

[A video pans, audio of the beach waves crashing on towards the banks, seabirds above and abound chirping their sea-songs undisturbed, the center of the video as it focuses; two empty lawn chairs... and a 100-foot radius perimeter around said lawn chairs, seemingly enforced by IDF soldiers behind makeshift-concrete barriers. A reporter then walks into the frame, ready to give his testimony. A translation is unavailable; there is no transcript of the dialogue.]

"שורה של היעלמויות באזור מטרידה ותמהה רשויות וחוקרים ישראלים זה מכבר; עד עכשיו... רק לאחרונה עלה לרשת סרטון ויראלי של אדם יושב על כורסת הדשא הזה ונעלם', מה שנותן לחוקרים להסגר את האזור עד להגעת "הרשויות הנכונות"."

Just weeks prior to the event; a viral video surfaced on Cryptoleak.

[This video depicts that same beach, though much more populated and missing the perimeter, a tourist appears to be talking to his wife in Hebrew; he's on camera, he's smiling, beach-body, and he goes to sit down on the lawnchair in question... before... completely disappearing a scream. This video was taken on Instagram Live, and has since been re-uploaded to multiple sources, including Cryptoleak.]

RAY WEST'S SON, KAN"YE" WEST, FLEW IN TO ASSIST HOSTAGE NEGOTIATORS AND POLICE WHO CIRCA 6-PM LOCALTIME WERE PREPARING TO ENTER THE BUILDING, AND BEGIN NEGOTIATIONS, EVACUATIONS CARRIED OUT FOR WHO COULD BE EVACUATED IN THE LOWER FLOORS: AND ADVISORY ISSUED OTHERWISE.

IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL THOUGH, REPORTS OF A BLUE GIANT ON-SCENE STARTLED CROWDS AND PASSERBYS, WHO CAUGHT THE MAN'S ENTRANCE WITH A FEW OTHER GOONS IN SUITS; HE WAS IDENTIFIED AS FRANKIE HORRIGAN (AFTER THE FACT), CHICAGO FAMILY MOBSTER AND "GOON", AND WARNED OFF-SET BY POLICE PRESENCE. THE MOBSTER IS REPORTED, BY EYE-WITNESSES AND NEWS CHOPPERS, TO HAVE WENT INTO A NEIGHBORING HIGH-RISE RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET (120 FEET AWAY, HORIZONTALLY).

SECURITY REPORTS THEY "SIMPLY MISSED THE GIANT ENTERING", CAMERA FOOTAGE SHOWS OTHERWISE AS HE QUITE LITERALLY WALKED IN, WALKED INTO THE STAIRS, SCALED 50 FLOORS IN JUST 10 MINUTES (IN A MAD DASH), AND ARRIVED AT THE TOP ROOF-ACESS; ALL WHILE BODY-CAMERA FOOTAGE FROM THE GOON GIANT HIMSELF CAPTURED THE ASCENT.

CRYPTOQUEST HEADLINES: A SPECIAL INTEREST INTERVIEW WITH 'SANGUINE BLOODSTORM,' BY SIR BENEDICT HOLLYSWORTH

BBC TWO

An Interview with a Pony: a Special Interest Programme

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

One week ago, a special interest piece was innocuously ran on the BBC Two channel - during a special segment on human interest programmes, including many interviews of people of diverse backgrounds, education, and circumstance. This week, recordings of this programme have received an incredible amount of interest - turning into a viral sensation regarding one of these interviews.

 

We go now to Fredrick "XTLucarioLover" Armani who is the head of the Official Sanguine Bloodstorm Discord Server.

 

 

 

"EQUESTRIA IS REAL. THERE'S NO DOUBT ABOUT IT, IT'S REAL, AND I'M GOING THERE."

"And you felt inspired by this interview, is that right Mr. Armani?"

"Just me? Are you kidding me? Anypony who's anypony seen this - seen it and it's-it's only the biggest news in the past CENTURY. And like Benedict, like, he's british and so badass. Like steampunk, like that. It's actually a lot like my steampunk pony-"

"Which we'd love to hear about in just a moment. For our viewers, just how big a following does the Sanguine Bloodstorm Discord have?"

"Oh, um... twenty-two thousand members. And um, we're hiring mods, and if you're over 18 we've got a really good channel-"

 

As you can see, this interview has attracted enormous amounts of online attention. On the main BBC channel, this clip of the famous anthropologist Sir Benedict Hollysmith and his pony companion has many fields of study in a tizzy. Cryptozoologists, Quantum physicists, and Supernatural scientists trying to confirm the veracity of this supernatural creature have been in concerted effort to contact Mr. Hollysmith. Most, it seems, doubt the integrity of the programme, and a handful of hit pieces claiming to find evidence of CGI have been realeased.


Next, the weather.

Cryptoleak: "Face Fire" erupts; consuming NYC 3-story Apartment!

"NYC Face Fire"

Cryptoleak

Multiple videos are available on Cryptoleak detailing a singular event, from multiple angles, at multiple times throughout the day; Police and eye-witness-reports, as well as contextual background people(s), also serve and prove to validate that this event did infact occur, and that there were in fact.

Faces in the fire.

(Cryptoleak Symbol)

======================================================

[The Camera Footage captures a large 150-x-150feet plot of land taken up by a 3-story apartment building somewhere in NYC, though it doesn't seem to be a good part of NYC (though where is right?). The building is wrapped and enveloped in a hellish flame, there is a crowd of bystanders, and police, looking on in horror.]

 

[The flame seems to have faces in it, vivid, formed, faces, every face and every "Person" in the fire screaming out in hellish agony in different languages, the faces depicting people from different time periods... The videos uploaded to Cryptoleak detail the progress of the fire all the way to hour(s) after it's end... when the Apartment Building has been reduced to rubble and debris.]

 

The apartment building, nor any of the people in it, could be saved or recovered... the investigation is underway as the NYC Fire Department struggles to move the rubble to recover any bodies or any evidence of what may have started the fire... Authorities have released a statement that they believe it was due to old furnishings, improper old wire-work, and faulty electronics, as well as the summer dry spell. 

The Vatican has yet to make a statement.

 

[Photo capturing the blaze.]

Breaking News: DSP Standoff with Cannibal Cult!

"DSP Standoff with Cannibal Cult!"

Cryptoleak

Two men in suits and ties, black tux and all, stand in front of a camera in a dark room; their suit-and-ties read "DSP: "Fang" ", and "DSP: "Sunhunter" ", their voices are distorted and their faces are blacked out. They begin to deliver an address, through official federal-news channels; occupying a timeslot usually reserved for the morning Monday news.

[DSP Symbol]

======================================================

[The following is distorted audio garble, blurred-blacked out faces, off an official Federal program/timeslot.] 

"Citizens of the United States of America, this is a message from the Department of Supernatural Phenomena; specifically, to those living in the state of California. Agents "Sunhunter" and "Fang", we here, recently have had to conclude our investigation into a Cannibal Cult operating in the Northern Woods of California, masquerading as a small town, with termination... the cult was stockpiling firearms, explosives, chemical weapons, and as we understand as we found a manifesto, were planning to march south of I-3 to Redding and beyond; to enact a horrible plan. It with the utmost sincerity, that we at the DSP confirm; that trace elements of Supernatural origin were discovered in their safehouse... we have eliminated the cult, their enclave stronghold, and any and all traces of resistance/terror cell elements present. We understand that this event may cause hysteria, distress, or otherwise hardship for affected parties; reach out to the proper helplines and/or appropriate Federal Agencies if you would like to seek compensation or otherwise appropriate inquiry."
[The Audio-Message is preluded with video footage of a Helicopter's front-camera missile bombarding what looks to be a small middle-of-the-woods town, no larger than 1/2 of a Suburb, as well as multiple pictures and videos of body-cam footage revealing Assault Weapons, Explosives, Rocket Launchers, a mass-grave, bodies, and a manifesto detailing the cult's intention to "Consume California" in it's entirety... Disturbingly, though incredibly blurred, blacked, and edited over, some of the body-camera footage shows emaciated-white-skeletal corpses lashing out and snarling...] 

"Understand that we Agents of the DSP are here to protect the American citizen and populace from abnormal threats such as this one; this is the end of our address."

"A-Man" Illuminated?! Where is he? Who is he?

"A-Man" Illuminated! Police Encounter?!

Cryptoleak

A Frantic Tourist stands about 100-150 feet off from an encounter; its day-time, rays of sunlight beaming down, a man in baggy clothes is wrestling with a cop on the ground... a golf-cart appears to be running over what remains of a different officer, before backing up and speeding off... An old man lies dead not far-off, blood pooling from his body... a different man lies about 70-feet down the dirt road; in similar condition.

(Cryptoleak Symbol)

======================================================

[The following is a screencap of a live stream captured in the day from 100-150 feet away by a man, excited and frantic, strafing backward while giving commentary. The live stream was at 4:30 PM.]

"Holy shit... holy shit... he's wrestling that cop! Why'd he do that? he just ran at him!"

[A gunshot is heard, sparks flying off the man's chest as they continue wrestling.]

"Wait, what the fuck? He just got shot! What the-"

[He quickly zooms in, and as they wrestle a hole is visible in the man's sweater; muscular nano-fibers and metal wiring revealed to display a glowing "A" in the center of his pectorals... some sort of armor suit?]

"WOAH WHAT THE FUCK!"

[The "A-Man" arrests him, cuffing him, and arguing with the recorder as he begins to strafe further away.]

"Im not a villain, im a hero! He was breaking the law- I didn't do anything wrong!"

[The video cuts out as the "A-Man" starts the police truck.]

[Artist's Rendition of the "A-Man" suit.]

"Copkiller" Illuminated! Who is he?

Fugitive Illuminated!

Cryptoleak

(The following is taken from Cryptoleak, off an anonymous user who has not stepped forward..)

(Cryptoleak Symbol)

======================================================

[The following is blurry footage, more than 6 different angles, it appears to be on a night-time Highway Bridge; stalled traffic, darkness illuminated only by the occasional streetlight and starlight... multiple cars are behind, multiple cars in front, about 12 in eyeshot; the main subject though is a man wearing a jumpsuit, four police officers unholstering their handguns and cuffs as they get out of their cars and scream arrest and rights at the man, and a man on the ground; reeling from some prior injury.]

"GET ON THE FUCKING GROUND! YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT; ANY AND ALL!-"

The man in the jumpsuit, an older man, twists his hands towards the officers; wiry tendrils detaching from his forearms and violently almost hissing at them...

"WHAT THE FU-"

Almost in an instant, the Officers explode, as air coagulates around them into fire and smoke; their cars blowing up with them... shrapnel and debris flying into the air, hitting nearby cars, and obscuring the footage... as the smoke clears, all that can be seen is the man in the jumpsuit window-side; carrying the limping man with him... the same tendrils that seemingly caused the explosion seeping into his body... injecting something into him? The footage clips out as the driver(S) step on the gas, the highway clearing out. 

(Artist's rendition of what "Copkiller" looked like).

The individual in question has entered the interwebs as "The Copkiller" or simply "Copkiller"... no-doubt investigations are already under way as Authorities are offering up to 100,000$ for information contributing or leading up to the arrest of the Copkiller... or his companion.

The Red Creed; Cult Illuminated!

The Red Creed Illuminated!

Cryptoleak

(The following is taken from Cryptoleak, off an anonymous user who has not stepped forward..)

Red Eye Coffee (@RedEyeGalway) / Twitter

(The Symbol, of the "Red Creed")

======================================================

[A Garbled distorted voice begins to read out information, addressing the viewer and beginning to pull up related images and pictures.]

"Hello, my name is not important but it is the information I have that matters. I have come apon information that may be of interest to some of you; to others, you will scroll by and go on with your day: I know how you all operate."

"The Red Creed is a small-time small-town cult operating in Middle America, I will not discern where they operate as I do not believe in inciting violence or giving any of you Illuminators an easy mark; may the best find them, regardless..."

[A Video begins to play, from a low-floor angle depicting a seminar circle of six figures hooded in red and gold glided robes. They appear to be surrounding a naked woman... one of them produces a dagger, their faces shrouded in darkness, plunging it into the woman's forehead... as it does this, red scars open up all over the woman's body... a hundred eyes blinking at once, tendrils lashing out from each of them as they open... the footage cuts.]

"You may interpret the footage as you wish, Goodbye." 

[A series of different horrifyingly realistic depictions of tendrils-eyes flash before the video, 100 in a second, before the sound of a camera's shutter snapping ends the video.]
