We don’t have the exact address for this drop yet, but then again, if you were interested in going, you should have checked out the gas stations yesterday and the day before and you would know what comic book store this is taking place. I expect Charlie Frost to tweet the location at about 1pm CDT, so stay tuned.

Update: So, with 30 minutes to spare (or 15 minutes since Twitter seems to be slow today), Charlie Frost tweeted the next location.

Institute for Human Continuity – Info Drops


Game: Institute for Human Continuity
Type: Info Drop
Location: Greater Metro Areas of Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, Washington DC
Date: October 26 (8am-noon) / Oct. 27 (3-6pm) and October 28 (8am – noon) / Oct. 29 (3-6pm)
Status: Concluded

Okay, here’s the deal. We have two more dead drops based upon the new book tour dates posted at the Farewell Atlantis Facebook page. We know the cities and the dates, but not the actual location. In order to get that, we need at least one person to check out one of the 800+ gas stations during the info drop periods, get the address, and then share it with the group.

It should be noted that Soren Ulfert has totally slacked off on alerting us to when the info drops are occurring. By my calculations, there should be an info drop today, but there has been no mention of it. Soren has also changed the time of the drops the last few times so that there is only a morning session (8a – 12p) instead of an afternoon session as well. Of course, since he hasn’t told us anything lately, this could have changed again. But I have to imagine someone somewhere is in a position where they could just swing by one of the locations without it being too far out of their way.

Update: Soren actually gave a blog update with the dates and times. He’s gone back to the original schedule of 8a-noon two days before the drop and 3-6pm one day before the drop. So to recap:

Information on Dallas dead drop:
October 26: 8a – 12p
October 27: 3p – 6p

Information on Philadelphia dead drop:
October 28: 8a – 12p
October 29: 3p – 6p

Anyone with access to one of the 800+ gas stations can retrieve this information.

So, if you live in one of the 15 metro areas listed above, find a gas station near you from the list, swing by today or tomorrow AND Wednesday or Thursday, grab the info and let me know about it. Easiest thing in the world, right?

Institute for Human Continuity – Dead Drop – Miami, FL

Sorry for such a short notice, but it doesn’t appear that anyone checked out any of the gas station info drops for the address this weekend. We didn’t get the information until @CharlieFrost tweeted it right before 1pm.

If you would like to avoid this problem in the future, please get someone in one of the covered areas to check out the information. That means going out today and tomorrow for the next drop on Wednesday.

Update: As far as I can tell, no one went to the Miami drop. I don’t know if it was because no one got the address from the gas stations beforehand and then didn’t see Charlie Frost’s tweet about the location, or if there is no one in Miami playing ARGs. Regardless, we don’t have the information and now have to wait a few days for Corruption Theory to get it to us (if he can).

Despite the fact we haven’t heard anything from @SorenUlfert about more gas station info drops, jjocke checked them out on Monday and got the information for the last (known) dead drop.

Institute for Human Continuity – Dead Drop – Atlanta, GA


Game: Institute for Human Continuity
Type: Dead drop
Location: 5920 Roswell Rd. NE, Atlanta GA (Teahouse Comics)
Date: October 19, 2009, 1-3pm (possibly)
Status: Incomplete

Okay, the information on this drop is really sketchy. It’s based on the Farewell Atlantis book signing dates and the addresses that were originally shown. However, Soren Ulfert never alerted us to a new set of gas station info drops, so we have zero confirmation on this. I’m throwing this out there just in case we get last minute word from Charlie Frost or if anyone in Atlanta doesn’t mind a potential wild goose chase on their lunch break.

If you’re on the fence about going, I’d try nudging Charlie or maybe calling Teahouse Comics and seeing if there are any weird people with manila envelopes hanging out at the store.

Time for another IHC drop. There should be more people showing up here than poor Chicago, which is the currently low drop on the totem pole with 1 confirmed attendee.

Status: Concluded

Please note this information is technically unconfirmed as I have not seen any reports from the last set of gas station info drops. But the dead drops seem to be following the Farewell Atlantis book signings and have been during the same time period, so it seems like a reasonable conclusion that this is the information for the next drop.

I’m actually very curious as to whether anyone will show up for this or not. It’s been my experience that NYC drops are notoriously hard to complete. Add in the fact that this is during the work day and my confidence in it being completely successfully drops considerably. Maybe if the LA drop turns out to be pretty cool the NYC people will want to show up for this one. We’ll see on Wednesday.

Thanks to strifey the wonder boy for actually going out and taking part in a live event. I can’t think of the last time he’s done that. Maybe it was because he a: needed gas in his car and b: no one else would be around. You can show your undying gratitude to him by buying him a dishwasher. He would love you forever if you did that.
