The First Watch

Further to A New Worldview where we provided some commentary and analysis of the 6EQUJ5 (cygnus) signals decrypted from SETI thus far, we have uncovered a communication which offers some insight into the 'elders' mentioned in the original memory fragments (assuming they are the same).

A New Worldview

The signal was first discovered in 1977 in the 1420MHz band and lasted for only 72 seconds. No further signals have been detected since, though advancing encryption techniques have shown that this signal was, in fact, a data packet with a subspace encryption envelope around a 4D energy envelope.

Language Barriers

The English language is a problem. True it is quite a simple language, but to discuss complex issues it does not provide an adequate information transference conduit. Try describing clever, or black without reference to their opposites ...

About me

Many (many) years ago, I discovered role-playing and Dungeons and Dragons in one of the after school clubs. It revealed a universe that allowed me to flex my storytelling muscles and enjoy a mixture of fantasy and sci-fi and feed the escapist dreamer inside.

Over time, I played (and story-led*) many systems including Call of Cthulhu*, Shadowrun, Dungeons & Dragons*, Middle Earth, In Nomine*, Bushido, Chivalry & Sorcery, Chill, Warhammer, Warhammer 40k, Gammaworld, Hawkmoon, Stormbringer, Immortals*, Marvel Super Heroes, Paranoia, RuneQuest, Vampire: The Masquerade*, and a couple of my own devising (Medieval* and Parody*).

I explored live-action role-playing – eventually running my own club and developing my own LARP systems (Fools Gold and Dream Conquest) – and usually found myself in script-writing or game-master duty, writing over 500 individual live adventures over the period, many linked into the world events of the fantasy land we created. I also volunteered for Curious Pastimes and Lorien Trust at their main LARP events (special effects at the Ritual Circle), and did a little script work, cameos and improv for Curious Pastimes. I was also the South East's Editor (UK) for the LARP magazine The Adventurer.

The rest, as they say, is history.
