Here's a mindscrew for you guys

Postby Tom on Sun Dec 30, 2012 6:56 am

Google "The Wall Will Fall".

When I first did this a few months ago, the top result NOT related to our game was an article on the Berlin Wall. Google summarized the article with this excerpt:

Google wrote:In his speech, President Reagan mentions this phrase, which was spraypainted on the Berlin Wall: "This wall will fall. Beliefs become reality.


Maybe Dryu should edit that timeline. Looks like the game started earlier than we thought.

So you're saying that President Reagan is Cthulhu?

I'm sure Walter Mondale thought so. Guy did barely any better than the Witch!

Edited.
Now go to sleep.
Why are we even arguing about a dead fictional dude and hypothetical ninjas?

I was mostly joking about the timeline, but I am amused that this is now apparently a part of the game's canon.

That'll teach me to joke about cataloguing stuff in front of Tropers!

Can't believe you actually did that, Qara. :D
Totally leaving it in. :gurt:

On a side note, Google's autocompletion kicks in after "The Wall Wil", and it even finds some pictures. So, the ARG is Touched By Google. (I still can't get proper results from "Lime man", though.)

I guess what we are really trying to say here is that you guys sent all of the characters back to East Berlin.

So if I take a trip there I can find all of my favourite fictional characters :shock:
...I guess we now know where we're all going to meet, huh :P

After some Googling: All the cool themed restaurants are in (former)West Berlin. There's one in Kreuzberg that apparently brings in the literati...

Okay, so I thought it was just me, but apparrantly Qara had been telling EVERYBODY to sleep. While being awake at three am herself. :roll:
They sometimes say, "the place where I am right now was circled on a map for me"... Unfortunately, I kind of suck at orienteering.
