Boston Drop

The Boston Asset

We received a mail from Oakley asking us for a player in the Boston Area for some live event:

Hello friends,

Speaking with Paula, it appears that there might be a Morphic event sometime in the next few weeks. Do you know any assets that can be deployed in the Boston Metropolitan Area?

-Oakley

Since none of us lives near Boston we searched on other channels and finally found a Boston Asset, Starling

The Tower

Starling got coordinates leading to a spot in the Torbert Macdonald Park, Mystic River Reservation, Boston. At the giving location, a tower was an outstanding landmark.
Starling found an envelope (having Oakley's symbol on it

The envelope contained:

  • a key
  • a coin (as always)
  • 8 cards (see Cards Puzzle)
  • a letter

Transmission interception

Starling got an update from Oakley Smith:

For the actual manifestation, we've intercepted the following transmissions:

"""
U1: Did you print out a copy of the map Cal deciphered?
U2: No, what was the record ID again?
U1: SPT111420-0.
U2: Give me a minute.
U1: Cal wants data from each of the locations.
U2: Did we also need the key?
U1: No, I already have a copy of that printed out

This led to a new record ID

Spatiotemporal 111420-0


Record ID: SPT111420-0

After a hint from Oakley we found the second record ID:

Spatiotemporal 111420-1


Record ID: SPT111420-1

The park locations

D Location (The Tower)

The Tower was at location 'D'.

A Location (Stone #1)

Starling found this rock at location 'A', which looks like the shape in the second Record ID message.

Torbert H Macdonald Park

B Location (Stone #2)

Starling found a second rock at location 'B', which might look like the 2nd shape in the second Record ID message.

Text (same as A)

Torbert H Macdonald Park

C location (map)

Starling found a map at location 'C', with the important part shown right
C-location1.jpgC-location2.jpgC-location3.jpg

Taking the hint from the 2nd Record ID this resolves to:

α = Arlington
β = Everett
γ = Medford
δ = Winchester

E location (The Pier)

Deciphering the code on the second record ID by replacing the numbers with letters from A, B, C:

B18 = P
Cα4 = I
Cβ1 = E
A3 = R

B4 = B
A5 = E
Cα9 = N
Cδ4 = C
Cδ5 = H

led to a PIER BENCH where Starling found The Park Box
