Did you think it was over?

What if I told you that everything that had come before was only the prelude? Grin at the sun all you want, it’s only a false dawn. Shadow dwells within the cracks and crevices of the worlds, and it can only be temporarily banished.

A letter has arrived for you, and you might find its contents familiar.



There are portents hidden in plain sight, revealing much to those brave fools willing to study the signs. The repository is the simplest way to track those elements which have come before, but there are other sources as well. Take heart, my friend, in time much will be revealed.

See you soon, roader.

Look West, dear roader.

Echoes & Updates

Part of the fun with events like this is discovering the trail yourself. That said, things have been somewhat quiet (at least on here.) So a small post to energize the stalwart few still dedicated to discovery wouldn’t be remiss. If you’re one of the marked who’s taken it upon themselves to follow the clues, a big one dropped today over on Instagram.

As always the repository has been updated. Diligence.

Echoes of the Wastelands

Echoes of the Wasteland

A repository of historical ephemera presented chronologically. There are circumstances still waiting to be discovered for those brave enough to peer around the edges of the world. This reality is faceted; each plane a reflection of corrupted shadow and light. Diligence.

CODA:

Many of these images have been posted on other social media accounts over the last few years and have never fully been assembled into one “master” location. This post has now rectified that oversight and I will continue to update it as necessary. If you’re confused, take heart, my friend, we all begin as colorless novices. I recommend starting here. (Well, start with my books first, then that post.) Ignore the whispers, those are just echoes from the wasteland.

See you soon, roader.

For Those Playing the Home Game...

For Those Playing the Home Game…

I’ve been running a little alternative reality game of sorts. It all started with this post from October 2016, and since then I’ve shared more clues, both here and on Instagram and in other undiscovered corners. I’ll continue to do so for the foreseeable future. If you’re a fan of my Bell Forging Cycle and you’ve been wanting more, I’d say it’s worth your time. It’ll lead you to some unusual places. If you’re looking for answers, this post won’t have them. But, I did want to share a few tips:

  • Get others involved, ARGs are meant to be group activities. Often, solutions don’t come to one particular person. When you have more people involved, you can talk through a problem and discover patterns.

  • Details matter, and you’ll eventually benefit from searching Google. Especially after initial have been discovered. Likewise, pay attention to things beyond imagery and coded ciphers. You’ll never know what you’ll find.

  • Along with Google, don’t forget that this blog has a search bar.

  • In the end, ARG organization is up to the players. I’ll continue to provide the content, but you’ll need to keep track of it. Consider engaging with each other in the comment section, launch a subreddit or wiki, or even consider email threads.

Going forward, I don’t intend to address the game openly. The thrill of the reveal is too easy to dampen and I want those taking the time to play to have fun. Good luck, roaders! I can feel that you’re on the verge of discovery. Pathways will open, trails shall be revealed, and dark corners will illuminate.
