Received this email today:

Dearest Friends,

After leaving Leila we hired a car and gave the driver a carefully drawn map that Leila had made for us. Michelle and I sat in the backseat as he drove us through the mountains to a place called the Abbey of Saint-Savin en Lavedan.

The woman who greeted us at the visitor's center called herself Sister Margaret, and she gave us some literature on Benedictine Abbeys and an application for attending a spiritual retreat. When we asked about Charlemagne she said she wasn't an expert but would go get Phil, who was a Benedictine monk and on-sight historian. While she was gone we noticed a young man with a scruffy beard and rumpled jacket taking pictures and eavesdropping on our conversation. He sidled up to Michelle and pressed a business card in her hand.

"I advise you to leave quickly, before she returns. You are in danger if you stay here. I don't think you realize what you're getting into. Meet me in Lourdes tomorrow afternoon. And bring the card.

After a quick consultation we decided to take his advice. After all, we could always come back and make our apologies if we decided to continue talking to Margaret and Phil. So we jumped in the car and implored our driver to take us back to Leila's house.

On the way we studied the card the man had given Michelle. On one side was printed his name and contact information. He was a German photographer named Paul. On the back of the card was printed a rather cryptic message:

(8)
Saturn
Caelus
Neptune
Apollo


More soon...

Best Wishes,
Winter

I received another e-mail from Winter:

Dearest Friends,

An update of sorts, if you will indulge me.
Patience in all things; the story will be told.
The puzzle is not like a blossom opening,
making itself apparent to all.
Rather it like a growing season,
seeds sown and watered and bathed in sunlight,
to grow within
to be harvested in the future
when the need is greater.

Melissa

Our story now merges with Melissa's story, and her story will become a story within a story. You can see why I implore you to be patient. We are all much closer now to being on the same page.

If you'll remember from my last letter, Melissa was the escort that H assignment to me for safety reasons.

I met Melissa at the airport and she was not what I expected, which will become important later. All you need to know now is that she was dressed like a school girl and carried a backpack which she would not be parted with. Nor would she divulge to contents of said backpack.

As she escorted me around the airport I was amazed at how fluent she was in multiple languages and local dialects, including English. She seemed much older and more confident than her young face and body revealed. Frankly, her demeanor was like someone from the armed forces, but she denied such a connection.

Once we were safely on the plane she told me of growing up in a very primitive and rural part of the country, where she longed to escape the drudgery of farm work and go to the city. Eventually, her wish came true when she was sold to a man who lived in the city.

"He was a terrible person," she said, opening a can of diet Coke that she begged from the flight attendant.

"How did you get away from him?" I asked.

She sipped her Coke and smiled. "I killed him."

More soon.

All my best,
Winter

received an email back from Winter:

Dearest Friends,

I have been reading all of your responses to the first assignment and I am deeply moved. You are a bright and creative group of people. I think we can save the world together.

While there are no right answers to your responses, a few of you have responded somewhat...differently, and I've given you a tiny snippet of information which may become important later on.

Later today I will notify those of you who have completed the first assignment and give you directions on what to do next.

Also, if you haven't let me know how you would like to be listed on the website, please do so ASAP so that I can indicate who has been assigned to each card.

Those of you who recently requested joining the list, I will complete your readings and assign you to a card very soon.

Now, to continue my story...

* * *

After telling H about my dream he mentioned someone whom I should talk to, who unfortunately lives on another continent. I told him I should leave immediately as I had quite a bit of traveling to do.

"You'll have to wait until morning. There is nobody here to take you back down the mountain and you cannot go alone in the dark."

I assented and asked him about living here in such a forbidding place.

"I have not choice. I am kind of a prisoner here."

When I protested H waived his hand dismissively.

"Do not worry about me. Wealth has its comforts. I can do a great deal of studying here and I am learning much about the present situation. I can also study the skies. And I have people who come and go to bring me things, thing that are difficult to get, and they also bring me company and tell me stories about the world."

"Like me?" I laughed.

"Like you, although you are company of a different sort."

"How so?" I asked.

"You're visit is going to require rallying the troops, so to speak."

"I am doing a little of that as well."

H sighed, then smiled a tight little smile. "Unfortunately, we're going to need all the help we can get. I have a small group of people whom I can bring together in situations like this, but I'm going to need your help, and the help of your friends. It's a very delicate process. We cannot communicate with them using traditional means."

"I understand. How many?"

"I have six friends in six different parts of the world. The first you will go to is in a place separated by mountains named for a character in Greek Mythology."

"When do I leave?"

"My personal assistant, Melissa, will meet you here in the morning and drive you to the airport. She will then accompany you on your journey."

"Whatever for?" I asked.

"You may need her assistance, and her protection."

I hesitated. "Protection...from a woman?"

H laughed, "That's a bit sexist."

"I certainly don't mean it like that. I was just wondering what sort of protection you're referring to."

"Let's hope you don't have to find out," H said.


That's all for now, friends. I will be in touch soon.

Best Wishes,
Winter

This is near the end of the web page which makes me think it is a game.


However, there are indications that the messages are part of an alternate reality, a complex puzzle similar to Cicada 3301, which ran for years before it was reportedly cracked in 2014.

A Twitter account called 914, run by someone with the handle @LunarrRabbits, has a pinned tweet dated March 17 which suggests that might be the case.

It reads: “This Event is no where related to catastrophic events, 18 april is definitely safe, all other accounts are impersonating, reason to hold this event is to help people solve an upcoming global cicada event, reason to hold this event is to aware people with knowledge (sic).”

×This Event is no where related to catastrophic events
× 18 april is definitely safe
×All other accounts are impersonating
×reason to hold this event is to help people solving a upcoming global cicada event
×reason to hold this event is to aware people with knowledge
