Phase 1

After the successfully completion of the Onboarding process, people got emails like this:

Congratulations on your accomplishments and progress into Phase 1 Onboarding. You are on your
path to become part of a legacy that spans back decades, made up of some of the brightest and
adventurous researchers and explorers of our generations. Here at Aeternus Center, we hope to
push the bounds of human ingenuity to achieve the impossible.
You can access a few of our internal systems at https://internal.aeternus.center/ with the login:
Username: phaseone
Password: PhaseOneRecruit

Records:
Division Record / Phase Record / */7

During this next phase, you'll need to find your fellow recruits and work together to progress. Let me
know once you've discovered the Division solution to gain special access. Once your group of
recruits has discovered the Phase solution, further information/access will be shared.

In the meantime, we are collecting questions to pose to our founder. Each recruit may submit *a*
question for Alexander to retnec.sunretea|qaf#retnec.sunretea|qaf (Founder Asked Questions) which will be answered
on our internal site.

Each division got another Division Record ID leading to 4 phase1 puzzles (see below). The Phase Record ID leads to the Meta Puzzle (see below) and each person got a specific three letter sequence which is part of one of the phase 1 puzzles.

PRECURSOR

The Record ID P1PARTS leads to

Phase 1: Precursor


Record ID: P1PARTS


Last Update: Oct. 4, 2020, midnight


Filed by: cjohnson


Precursor: S???????S

21/7

Solution

The 21/7 refers to the *7 parts of the messages above. People reveived different three letter codes.
Examples for the *7 codes received:
ABO
BOT
OTE
EUR
URS

which at the end led to the division passphrase SABATEURS

Answer from cole:

Phase 1 Precursor recruits have access to our internal messaging system. If there is a specific message you'd like to post, please let me know its title and contents
(can include HTML). This may be a good way to distribute information and get in contact with your fellow recruits

EXPLORER

The Record ID P1ETONE leads to

Phase 1: Explorer


Record ID: P1ETONE


Last Update: Oct. 4, 2020, midnight



Explorer: A???????N

­čô×#9´ŞĆ

Solution

calling the Aeternus phone number and adding #9 asks for a nine number code. Try and error lead to
255693346 which spells out ALLOWEDIN returns 133312132 and "have a good day"

Answer from Cole:

Phase 1 Explorer recruits have access to a contractor that is available to explore locations/recover items if you come across any interesting leads they should
investigate. There is only one contractor available, so you will need to reach consensus with your other Explorer recruits.

Solution

First part misses the word "dormouse": A dormouse is a rodent of the family Gliridae

Second part misses the words "baked" and "earth" which led to the solution Glirarium

Answer from Cole:

Phase 1 Archivist recruits have access to our research specialist. You may submit any lead or other information that you would like to research and our specialist will get back to you with the result.

ORACLE

The Record ID P1OMENS leads to

Phase 1: Oracle


Record ID: P1OMENS


Last Update: Oct. 4, 2020, midnight


Filed by: cjohnson


Oracle: A???????Y

Record ID: Acrostic

1. Notes lead to a door, beyond lies a view of a bridge, under the twilight of a moon. The wizard casts and balance falls, the stranger calls, as the sound of owls brightens branches. A crystal slipper shows the way to a flying house, a key, a kite. Bishops shattered and in return we go past kite, past key, past house, to coins awoken. Bring the axe to pass the time.

2.Brew a draught, a dog you walk. Hear the phone ring as a stranger knocks. A tub, dreaming of floating ships. A bed where a mage plays chess and glows like jellyfish in woods unseen, back again to kites we fly, a game of chess, a moon in the sky. Cross the bridge, and through the door. Notes end your path.

3. Chase the time and rabbits fast, broken light, a key so bright. Skip the candy and find yourself sitting on a roof alone.

4. A star above, bugs in dance, a tub below a game. See the fish and the cow point the way, candy snow, floating home. The strings pull forth aboard a blimp, find the key.

5. Fishing keys, chase the time, the watchful cats watch the stars. Clockwork bugs, and floating coins lead to games, a fishy sight. Chemistry for candy made, play piano float up above, red hair leads the way a table to read a book ajar.

6. The horse races, the key is caught, the time is soon as cats watch out. Climb the ladder, open door, pass the cave entrance to see the moon. Roses lie upon some planes. Watch the bathtub for a stranger comes. Call forth a walker of dogs, brew the spider.

7. On a rooftop, you skip over the swirls, down to a key that lights the way. Chase the hare, but don't run on time.

8. A bed leads to dreams of elephants, a shrine to the stranger, back again. A rooftop visage, a castle far above. Return to the rooftop and the shrine again, find the spotted cow and down again, through fields of jelly and towers of books, time is melting and the cats watch you.

9. Dancing bugs, a tower writ, the key then play a melody, the hedgehog watches and returns again, a melody, a key, find the liquid secrets that let creatures balance.

Solution

An acrostic is a poem in which the first letter (or syllable, or word) of each line spells out a word, message or the alphabet.

Taking first letters resolves to: NBCAFTOAD which is another Record Id leading to this image:
phase1-oracle.jpg

using the description 1-9 above on the cards leads to the nine letters AFINECITY

Answer from cole:

Phase 1 Oracle recruits have access to our prediction engine. You can submit the description of a situation to receive the calculated outcome. Due to the design of our prediction engine, only one situation can be analyzed at a time and the result will only be transmitted to the original requester, so you will need to reach consensus with your other Oracle recruits when submitting a situation.
