Flynn Lives (TRON) – Finale Event – NYC / Toronto


Game: Flynn Lives (TRON)
Type: Finale Event
Location: New York City, NY / Toronto, Ontario
Date: December 8, 2010
Status: Completed

The finale event is here, with the first two cities unlocked. It appears as if there will be the same set of instructions for everything.

  • Get to the above location immediately, and bring a phone that can send and receive calls (does not have to be a Flynn Lives phone).
  • Find the TRON sticker and call the phone number printed on its face.
  • Stay at the location and wait for further instructions – Flynn Lives will let you know when the mission is complete.
  • Only the first person to find and call the phone number will unlock the drop and get the final meet-up instructions.
  • Be diligent. Stay safe. And good luck.

NYC location: 40.73595, -73.99801 — Claimed

Toronto location: 43.65273, -79.39095 — Claimed

I do think it’s a bit of a shame that only the first person at each location gets a prize. Is it really too much to provide smaller consolation prizes for people who take the time to show up for an event in the middle of a work day?

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
Date: Dropped September 12, 2010
Status: Concluded

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).

Thanks to @4DFiction for tweeting about the dead drop.

Maya, from 100 years in the future, seems to have found some friends in our time to leave a series of symbols scattered around the globe. Based on the one report so far, this will lead to a phone number for you to call that will play another message to us from Maya. The message should in turn provide a clue that will unlock one of six parts of the final video on Love Letters to the Future (keyword: Maya2109).

Part 1: Stockholm & Buenos Aires – UNLOCKED
Part 2: Hong Kong & Cork – UNLOCKED
Part 3: Mumbai & Toronto

In order to complete GPS missions, you need a phone with an internal GPS device or an external GPS device (Bluetooth “GPS mouse”). Nokia Symbian or Windows Mobile PPC works best. Register at GPS Mobile, download the software onto your phone, and then head out to the mission sites.

Each checkpoint you arrive at reveals a message that has a web address (Checkpoint x/n . http://thewaytheirworldended.com/…’) The address is only shown once, so be ready to copy it down so you won’t forget. Visiting the website unlocks a piece for the game.
