This one's at 627 Ursulines Ave, New Orleans.
Why are we even arguing about a dead fictional dude and hypothetical ninjas?

If you're on good speaking terms, do it. If you're not, then let's try some other people first. (We should never underestimate the social networking power of GuestBatman17 :) )

Please do, if it becomes necessary.

Remember, people, we must NOT take Batman for granted!

Oh, we still talk. We're even still friends. He just has... opinions about stuff. Plus I have a feeling I'll owe him something. It's a daunting prospect, knowing some of the things he asks me.

Yeah I can see what you mean :/ That said, maybe if you just tell him it's part of this online game you're playing?

Maybe. Like I said, it's a daunting prospect. You'd understand if you ever met him. But I'll bite the bullet and ask if no one can get to it by the weekend.

I have a friend in the NOLA area that I have poked about this. She actually already has an account on these forums, though I don't think she's posted.

My co-worker's office is 5 miles from that location and he is willing to go there but he is out of town for 2 weeks so let's see if someone else can get there before then.

Good. He should examine the place well - there may be something riddle-related (the cat said "the best riddle is the one you don't know is there"). I recall something being said about a tall fence over there...

The hashtags in the initial tweet were "#blastthatfence" and "#companyofmyself". I don't remember if he mentioned something later.

He didn't - Sicon did. He found a photo of that place, or something. I don't remember.

Google maps.
Normal people are the easiest to manipulate. Too smart and they have an annoying tendency to catch wind of your plans, too dumb and, in the words of a certain pirate, "You can never tell when they are about to do something incredibly...stupid."

Since there doesn't seem to have been any action on this one, I'm thinking of making a Craigslist posting because time's running out and what do we have to lose?

I'm considering posting it under Activities. Any thoughts, feedback?

Title: Assistance Requested with Alternate Reality Game

We need someone with a smartphone to visit a particular address in New Orleans and use an app called Layar to collect a piece of information. An international community is involved with this game, but none of us are located near New Orleans so we are seeking help.

If you'd like more information, contact me or visit watchthefootage.com


I'm not sure whether URLs are permitted in Craigslist postings or not, but for the moment I'm assuming they are.

I definitely won't post it until tomorrow morning, so you've got until then to give me input, or argue that this is a terrible idea, although if you do that I'm unlikely to listen unless you also provide a better plan.
Never put off until tomorrow what you can put off until the day after.

Update: I went ahead and posted the Craigslist ad. We might not get any bites, but I'm hoping we do.

So... Plan C, maybe?

Can the Cat use a smartphone? He seems kinda Tech Savvy, so if he has one he might be able to operate it, with Telekinesis or something.

I've got one response. Sent him the information about the address and how to use the Echo Layar. Hopefully he can get it for us.
