The OP, InSanE1, found a mysterious ad on ATS. With this image:
Note: This is a GAME sponsored by ATS.
Here are a few hints given to us by Springer:
1. Only two people are running the game, Skeptic Overlord, and Springer. (/pg46#pid12381609)
2. There is no other staff of ATS posting clues in this game. (/pg45#pid12381530)
3. There are no phone numbers involved. No clues derive to actual phone numbers. (/pg47#pid12382140)
Skeptic Overlord has reduced the 50 post requirement for chat to 10 for the duration of the game
. Make ten posts to join the Enigma chatroom
on ATS. (/pg66#pid2390742)
8 pages into the thread, we get THIS
Motivation? Not really. Most of us
contributing love puzzles anyway. The first person to enter the last clue wins. Only one winner here.
Prequel to the Puzzle.
(The story is by Skeptic Overlord but from 2003, and
any correlations to that story are coincidence.)
The story line so far:
(feel free to correct errors!)
In the year 2111, corrections to past are easily achieved, by adjusting the TPE, yet they are experiencing some unperceived consequences. They have
assigned 8 differential specialists and 3 mathematicians to our current timeline, of which Kent is one, and he is trying to send Journal
back to us in this timeline, and needs our help desperately. They are trying to localize the problem in this decade, numbered 138, but
are experiencing cascading errors which they believe will lead to the collapse of the Planet Earth.....
Questions you have after reading that? Well, that is what this game is all about.
