Current Status Summary
- Mike's headed home. Faith is missing. EWO is done 'for now'. The cloculus is ticking away.
- EWO sent a 'final' update, directing people back to Faith's recovered tape page, to read his 'final' post... "for now", which also included another video for Faith, from Madam Steph.
- META: The puppetmasters issues a survey for all participants of the ARG, asking for input and feedback regarding their experience; many questions seem to say that the end has come, including references to the 'cliffhanger ending'.
- A new 'promo' video appeared on the New Visitors page, including footage up to and including this point. It has also appeared on Youtube, like the original video. Could this be phase 2?
- Mike reached his target, but Faith is nowhere to be found.
- The 7th rune has appeared, sending us to the next puzzle, and vision. The destination website is another oculus countdown timed for Sept 28, 11am EST, labelled with a string of symbols.
- EWO linked to the video showing the contents of Faith's camera that Mike found at the bazaar.
- Mike found Faith's cameras in a bazaar amongst toys, at the base of Ararat (also note a white cowboy hat also on the table).
- Mike sends his 5th update from Turkey, nearing Mt.Ararat.
- EWO posted Mike's 4th video, where Mike begins to question himself, but finds the symbol from the vision that was left on the red container, getting re-energized in his search for Faith.
- EWO posted a 3rd video from Mike as he's still 2 days behind Faith, and sounding quite 'loopy'
- A new unexplained pic was added, showing someone appearing to be walking on water
- After 3 days, Mike returned to the hotel in Turkey, found Faith's note and now has an email address for contact, setup by EWO, who was also sent 2 videos from Mike to post
- Mike has been informed of Faith's location and is now heading to Mt.Ararat to find her.
- EWO posted the 2nd video he received from Mike, who is about 2 days behind Faith in travelling by bus to Ararat.
- Mike has gone missing.
- A third unexplained pic was posted by EWO, sent from auroralightwing.
- later, Faith posted again telling us she's going to Ararat without Mike, and if we're in contact with him, to tell him where she's going. She was being watched in her bedroom at night and her freaky video captured him.
