The Human Preservation Project is having yet another round of dead drops for individuals lucky enough to have the day off on Thursday, November 17th. The countdown page is promising that this is the HPP’s biggest expedition yet, so maybe it will be more than first come, first served (but I wouldn’t hold my breath on that).

Although the countdown page doesn’t list the “rules” that were given out on previous missions, it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to follow them in order to maximize your chances at getting one of the last remaining ice flies.

• Sign up at SurvivalCode.com
• Bring a mobile phone with you that can receive text messages.
• Be prepared for only one package available per location (first come, first served)

There’s a coordination thread over at Unfiction where if you want to plan your strategy (or just check out the competition).

LAGP / Order of Umbra – Scavenger Hunt – San Diego, CA

Game: LAGP (Los Angeles Ghost Patrol) / Order of Umbra
Type: Scavenger Hunt
Location: San Diego Comic Con General Area
Date: Posted July 22, 2011
Status: Concluded

The Order of Umbra is looking for a few good men and women to join them as a First Degree Initiate.

Follow in our Founder’s footsteps and descend into Hell.
‘Tis a journey thru San Diego that will prepare the Profane
for the tasks of a First Degree Initiate to the Order of Umbra.
Search for the mark of Umbra at each location.

It appears that they have set up a scavenger hunt around San Deigo (I guess Comic Con goers are the sort of initiates they are looking for). Right now, only the first location is revealed on the webpage (although with a bit of trickery, the rest can be found as well). No idea what is at each site, or if you have to sign up beforehand. So if you’re the first person there, please let someone know about it.

Over on the Flynn Lives website, there is a countdown that will hit zero on February 24th at 11am EST. Below the countdown there is a slowly revealing list of city names. Current speculation is that things will be happening in those cities when the countdown hits zero, but it’s far too early to tell at this point in time. If you live in or near one of those cities, keep the countdown page or back here for updates within the next 5 days.


Update: So the image has completely resolved and all of the cities have been revealed. The original list posted was pretty close to what it finished up to be (the two switches were Detroit -> Denver and Indianapolis -> Minneapolis). We still don’t know what is going to be going on in those cities or exactly where things will be happening, but hopefully an update is on its way so those people who are contemplating taking off work will know if they should or not.

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?

The Institute for Human Continuity is going to be having a presence at the 2009 Comic-Con in San Diego. They are looking for Ambassadors – for what purpose I have no idea, but it could be for something cool.

July 22, 2009

I am happy to announce that, at Comic-Con in San Diego, the IHC will be looking for people to participate in our prestigious IHC Ambassador program. Our Ambassadors will receive access to exclusive resources and information from the IHC.

I would particularly urge you to do your utmost to become an Ambassador.

If you or someone you know is planning to go to Comic-Con, be on the lookout for the postcard we will distribute there. You’ll also want to follow @TheIHC on Twitter. This will be the main way in which we will communicate information about how one can become an Ambassador. We’ll also be seeking Ambassadors among those who can’t make it to San Diego, so it’s crucial to follow us on Twitter.

Thank you in advance for your efforts. Remember together we can ensure the end is just the beginning.

Update: @TheIHC posted this Twitpic that is supposed to help you find them as they give away stuff. They’ve also been awarding stuff to people who DM them first after they tweet, so keep your eye out for that if you aren’t at Comic-Con.

Intimation – GPS Mission – US, Canada, UK, Germany

Game: Intimation
Type: GPS Mission
Location: Philadelphia, PA / San Diego, CA / Hollywood, CA / Atlanta, GA / Berlin, Germany / Vancouver, BC / Portland, OR / Chicago, IL / Miami, FL / London, UK / Los Angeles, CA / Golden Gate Park, CA / Las Vegas, NV / Toronto, ON / St. Louis, MO
Date: Posted Apr 24, 2009
Status: Incomplete

New sets of GPS Missions have gone up for the Intimation game. So far, only the Central Park mission has been completely successful in gathering all the URLs needed to unlock new game content.

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.

Thanks to @drizjr for the tip.

Update: Hollywood and Los Angeles missions completed by @krystyn. St. Louis completed by Nyst. London completed by DaiMudda.

There is now an easily readable list of which missions are completed and which are not: http://thewaytheirworldended.com/A-WHOLE-BUNCH/
