I also tried to unscramble it, but I can't get to what I have saved right now. Looks like you got some stuff that I didn't, though. I am pretty sure that it's "Premetheus stole fire from the humans to give (it?) to the gods," since that's turned up elsewhere.

This deserves its own post. More unscrambling:

Hm, you certainly got further in the Odin code than I expected, but the formatting's off as are some of the words and phrases. I could always just give you guys the real text myself, but I'll wait for now.

Also, uh, for the record we're close to the part of the ARG where alliterator and I stopped making puzzles because of the nine-month hiatus. I've got future content in the works and it shouldn't take long (maybe a day if I'm lucky, a couple days would be fairer, but really who can tell), but I just wanted to let you guys know.

In the meantime, I will do what you seem to go to Lilith for and give you hints as to what puzzles are still unsolved!

- "begin test" has a message in it.
- The Sycamore Project has so many codes it makes my head hurt, even just in the ARG-relevant post.
- Tea Time with the Traitor has that deceptively baffling code.
- There's two messages on The Archive of Premetheus waiting for you, and you have all the hints you need to crack them.
- The Odin code is pretty much done, but some details are still jumbled. I could do it in about half an hour (and that's nine months afterward, where I'd forgotten what the parable was), so I have faith in you guys.
- Yeah, okay, there's also the Premetheus code, if you will. But that one's not really important. It was meant to get you ready for the Odin one.
- You still have not found the Cure for your Marks, and the clock is ticking... tell you what, as soon as I have more content ready for distributing throughout the internet, that's when the current Marks will kill people, okay? There's your time limit.
- Then there's still the biggest puzzle of them all: The story here. What is going on, how does everything fit together?

I'll wrap this up by ever so typically giving a cryptic sneak preview of things to come: Keep your EYES on all god-research organizations!

Okay I just solved the short line from the Archive blog; it was Vigenere with key "premetheustookfromthehumans"

Clue on how to get unMarked?

Could very well be. Or it could be a message to Zeus? Maybe it's a clue as to where the Scribe went, or... I don't know. Brain not operating at peak performance levels.

Well, you guys solved The Archive of Premetheus, way to go (I should have new content tomorrow!)!

Yes, that message is, in fact, a key to the Curing system. However, we can't really test that game mechanic until we have a player who has a Curable Mark (so Dr0Shadow's out). Though there are still Marked players-- they're just.. not really around? Hm.

But hey listen, I'm gonna go to sleep for tonight. You guys still have a few puzzles left, and I think you might really enjoy the rewards to.... some of them, so I do suggest trying around!

I suggest you ask Frigg your question quickly.

I would do that, if I knew what to ask!

Edit: Look at the archive thread. I finished my conversation with the archive and the implications are huge, Game Changing (no pun intended, but it's true).

Edit: You do realize that Frigg is The Vision.

Yes, I do realize that. I forgot that actually you're asking Lilith and she "gave you to Frigg." So you can't ask about Eshu, because Lilith doesn't know who/what he is either. :(

I kind of assumed being marked by Frigg means he gets to ask one question just in general not necessarily to Lilith, possibly to Frigg or perhaps Eshu... someone with knowledge, that he'd get an answer to... and then I guess he dies...

Also working on the video I think I've figureed out some of what's being said...

The very first line is a whispered: "Begin Test"

Followed by

"Are you going to join us?" repeated a few times I think...

Then the sounds I thought were clicking noises are actually the letters someone else mentioned and I never noticed were not just sounds before... Trying to figure them out now...

Sounds like THMPTYSSTWWWPLY

I've looked at this for a few seconds and assuming I got all the right letters... I can see the beginnings of something I think.

HTTPS://WWW. leaves TMPYSLY

So I'm fairly sure we're being given a website...

Gonna listen again and see if I can get more...

God repeated letters in this video are really annoying... with the echo it's hard to tell if a letter is actually repeated or just the echo... Gonna have to listen again cause I think I missed some repeated letters last time

TTHHMPPTTYSSTTTWWWWPLY

Okay it just occurred to me those aren't echoes not every letter echoes meaning every repetition of the letter is it's own letter... Which... Great... Now I'm really lost... One last try and then I'm just gonna assume for now I got all the letters and you guys can check yourselves to decide if I'm right

Oh god dammit another problem...

I am listening with earphones and had to take one out and now there are almost no repetition which makes it easier, but I don't know if the repetitions are meant or not?

Well gonna put the one earphone version as well now

THHHMPTTYSSTTWWWWPLY

So... without the second earphone that seems to be pretty much the same, but without a few letters... Assuming this is the correct form and the extra letters were the mistake trying to get a website again gives us

HTTPS//:WWW. and these letters HHMTYSTTWPLY

Also just a sidenote I forgot to mention the voice saying are you gonna join us also says Roll the camera and a line too faded for me to hear shortly before the letters.

Now that is interesting. Nice work.

EDIT: I'm working on the Sycamore Project code and I think it's likely that XOR was used, since the title of the post has the symbol for XOR. Of course, that could simply be the hacker's attempt to camouflage the post.

Unsure if you're referring to the code here, or Sycamore Project code. This thread is intended for Nine Is God gameplay, for the sake of clarity of information please keep other ARG things to other threads.
