*Spoiler* For those who feel like translating spanish.

Here is the translation of the whispers you hear on the registration page:

God, our Lord, King of ages, All-powerful and Almighty, you who made everything and who transform everything simply by your will; you who changed into dew the flames of the seven-times hotter furnace and protected and saved your three holy children: You are the doctor and physician of my soul. You are the salvation of those who turn to you. I beseech you to make powerless, banish, and drive out every diabolic power, presence and machination; every evil influence, malefice or evil eye and all evil actions aimed against me. Where there is envy and malice, give me an abundance of goodness, endurance, victory and charity. O Lord, you who love man, I beg you to reach out your powerful hands and your most high and mighty arms and come to my aid. Send your angel of peace over me, to protect my body and soul. May he keep at bay and vanquish every evil power, every poison or malice invoked against me by corrupt and envious people. Then under the protection of your authority may I sing with gratitude, “The Lord is my salvation; whom should I fear?” I will not fear evil because you are with me, my God, my strength, my powerful Lord, Lord of peace, Father of all ages. Amen.

It appears in a series of prayer of exorcism, appropriately, because it sounds like something is possessing her at the end:

It's pretty amazing to watch the TSW community tear into this ARG - the first thread on the forums was barrelling toward the 99 PAGE limit, so they've already started a new one.

Plus,  folks who registered on the ARC website with their phone number are receiving phone calls - very cryptic phone calls.  The discussion on the forums is so fast and furious that I'm thinking the Mod Squad is gonna have to start a 3rd thread pretty soon.

EDIT:  Ah, the discussion has now turned toward the phone number(s) that were used to deliver the messages.  The numerology experts are going berzerk over what the number combinations might mean... heh.

This is already old news, but:

some people got a text message, which led to an events listing on Craiglist for "End of the wolrld" in Brooklyn, NY, with what looked like a cipher for a contact.

Cipher turned out to be the ID of a posting on pastebin.com which was a misquote of a stanza from a poem, "The end of the world" with the words "morning" and "light" substituted in, and underneath: "Pattern: www.#.org"

(The Morninglight, in the TSW universe, is a worldwide New Age cult.)

www.morninglight.org turned out to be controlled by a domain squatter.

www.themorninglight.org on the other hand (registered 3 days ago) redirects to a "Situation Room" at thesecretworld.com with a chatroom, command line console and 4 rows of TV screens which occasionally show presumably significant images.

Thanks for the updates dancingstar, appreciate it. It was new news to me. I haven't been keeping up to date with it.

Keep them coming!

Oh dear. I really hope they don't call me. I'm afraid if that happens to me I'll be surrendering my man-card shortly after. I'm pretty sure I'll piss myself and run out of the house shrieking.

Bumping this since it's been kind of buried with all the reaction to yesterday's announcement.

The first "mission" in the "End of Days" ARG is now live at The Situation Room, it's a pretty straightforward one & completing it gets you a code for an outfit useable by all characters on a TSW account, as well as increasing your chances of surviving the forthcoming End of Days by 2%.
