Animism – Dead Drop – Lake Simcoe, Ontario


Game: Animism
Type: Dead Drop
Location: Sutton/Mossington Park area of Lake Simcoe, Ontario, Canada
Date: Dropped September 29, 2010
Status: Concluded

There’s been another drop for the Animism game that players need help recovering. This one appears to be at the Sutton/Mossington Park area of Lake Simcoe, Ontario, Canada.

It’s been noted that there is a strange “No Trespassing” sign located behind the “Iron Clad” signs, so that might be where the drop is actually located. (You have to view the full size image on Twitpic to see the “No Trespassing” sign in the back.)

I don’t know how hard or easy it will be to find this particular location, so if you’re going out, you should definitely consider securing the aid of one of the players in the Animism thread for ground support, or friend @ironcladchad on Twitter. There’s also a toll free number on the Iron Clad signs (1-888-579-4430) that might be useful to call as well.

Thanks to @enaxor for giving me the heads up again.



Animism – Dead Drop – Toronto, ON


Game: Animism
Type: Dead Drop
Location: University of Toronto Hart House Library, Toronto, ON

There appears to be a second library dead drop for the Animism game.

Declan believes we need to check out the book/s in the photo, especially “The Polar Sea Journey”.

This comment from Stephen on Declan’s blog gives us a location to check for the book/s:

I’ve conferred with a few colleagues sir–they’re saying they’re certain the library is the U of T Hart House library!

No one has picked up the Vancouver drop yet, so if you have any Canadian friends in either area, let them know that you need their help.

Animism – Dead Drop – Vancouver, BC


Game: Animism
Type: Dead Drop
Location: Vancouver Public Library, Vancouver, BC
Date: Dropped September 7, 2010
Status: Concluded

The players of Animism: The Sacred Sites have discovered a dead drop that was hinted at a character’s blog:

There is faint text at the bottom right that says:
“Remember our deal…
VPL
BUS 333.38 F86m
HB”
I believe “VPL” is Vancouver Public Library, “BUS” is the business section, and 333.38 F86m is a call out number for a book.

Note: The VPL catalog is undergoing maintenance until 11am EDT so I am unable to get specific information about the book at this time. I’ll update with more information after the catalog is back online.

Update: It figures that the one time I will ever need to use the VPL card catalog, it ends up being down most of the day. The book is Model subdivision regulations : text and commentary by Robert H. Freilich and Peter S. Levi.

UF member Shizzire has contacted the library, was told that there is a note inside the book, and currently has it on hold at the counter. You can send them a PM on Unfiction to get instructions on how to get the book/note (or maybe just be really nice to the librarian and ask them just to let you see the note).
