Charlotte – Character Meet – NYC

Game: Charlotte Is Becoming Real
Type: Character Meet
Location: Terazza Toscana, NYC
Date: April 15, 2009, 5pm
Completed: Yes

Players received a distorted audio file from P. Martin with the following instructions:

I arranged an appointment for you. Meet me tomorrow at 5 p.m. The place is called Terazza Toscana. Ask for my name when you enter the place. I hope you will be there. At least one of you should show up, otherwise you won’t stop it.

Players attending should ask for P. Martin (or possibly Ivan Krotzler / Isabell Alzner / Clare Alzner / Julia Schwarz / Penny the Receptionist / Jimmy the IT Guy / a Dingo) and be prepared to find out what we should be stopping.

Update: Mission was a success. Rebel2k4 and his father went to the restaurant to meet with P. Martin. They were shown to a table for 2 and given a large manila envelope with a tape recorder, several pieces of paper and a brochure.

Charlotte – Dead Drop – Central Park, NYC

Game: Charlotte Is Becoming Real
Type: Dead drop cache
Location: Central Park, NYC – N 40° 47.704′, W 73°57.587′
Date: dropped April 12, 2009, picked up April 14
Completed: Yes

Dead drop coordinates retrieved from a puzzle in a letter. The puzzle solve is fairly shaky (there have been three different sets of coordinates so far), but the current coordinates point to the corner of trails by The Pool, which would seem like an ideal spot.

Cache content is unknown, but possibly a microcassette recorder (wrapped in newspaper inside a Ziploc bag).

Further information: Unfiction thread

Update: After two searches of the area by rebel2k4, Jimmy the IT guy was sent out. Despite “having some troubles with the first coordinates because they weren’t too exact” (I’m sure it wasn’t because the puzzle was flawed at all), a bag with a girls white dress was found in a hole covered by a stone.

Sadly, the first attempt at using @arg_deaddrop has failed miserably. Here’s to hoping that future endeavors will be more successful.
