Mr. Administrator,

I’m sorry if you’ve been trying to reach me by phone. I had to deactivate my number -- I began getting creepy calls from someone who, I have reason to believe, is a threat to your safety, should he find you. But I reactivated it now, and since the guy appears to have taken my number off his site, I should be good.

I did successfully move the piece per your email. I don’t think anyone but the crazy guy saw me. No one else is paying attention. So that’s a load off my mind.

This gets us back to fictionalthreat. The agent's phone number is presumably the one listed on the fictionalthreat website.

Transcript of my call (might be wrong in some parts):
"I don't recognize your number, so I know what you're calling about. Yes that guy is crazy. No, I don't" (he was mumbling on the next part, so it's an estimate) "have the piece. And you should feel bad for helping him. So leave me alone, and never call me again. Goodbye."

Edit: Derp, forgot the number: (714) 242-5658, although we shouldn't call it anymore, since we've already discovered where it is.

Ok, with my second number it went through. First he was complaining as usual but after noting that so many of us have called he gave up. From then I started logging mostly everything, so here's a rough transcript:
Mr. Administrator did not tell me that all these calls were part of the job. The crazy guy was telling the truth. The wall is [falling/collapsing]. As for the wall piece, I lost it in Seattle. I left it in a bag with comics somewhere downtown. It was near [a comic shop/ shop/ store] with lots of logos: Batman, Superman. The bag has a pony on it.

Anyway, I think thats pretty close. Good luck!

I called, he said something about the telling the same thing to the last three guys who had called, that he didn't work for Mr. Administrator.

When you call back now (from any number I think), you get the following message which I've transcribed:
Really? I told you guys all you need to know. You all beat me. Crazy guy's right. I work for the man in the Void. Was guarding the wall piece. Lost it in a comic shop in downtown Seattle with a glowing Batman logo on it. The bag had ponies on it. Please, just leave me alone.

Oh, and for the record, this was not the recording I described in the previous post.

Ok, I applied some Google-fu. The G-maps search "seattle comic book stores" came back with a lot of errors (like, it says the place is there, but there's nothing). We're looking for a store with a glowing Batman logo, so those are my guesses, in order of decreasing likelihood:

1 (Has a lot of logos, but I can't see Superman's; Batman's logo seems to be illuminated, but I'm not sure)
2 (Only seems to have a Batman logo)
3 (Has a lot of stuff, so the logos may be there, but I don't see any).

I guess it's the first one, but I hate to mislead you guys.

So.... anyone wants a trophy pony bag? :P
Well guess what, I totally do. I hate you GMs. >8/

The obvious thing to do would be to call them. And when I say 'call' *looks at Dryu* I don't mean stalk.

I'll refrain from international calls, thank you very much.
And I'm not sure what you mean by looking at me when talking about stalking. :?

My transcription of the first call might be incorrect, so I wouldn't worry about there not being a Superman logo.

I was remembering birds and bunnies and rainbows.

Obviously exactly what I said. We don't mind - you have special exemptions from stalking, anyway. -H.

First call to first hit on Google was a success. She knew what I was talking about!

Did you scan it, or just take the picture?

Considering that Mr. A is not going apeshit yet, I guess it's the latter. :)

I have two pictures of the qr code but will have to combine them to make them scannable due to reflections.

I suggest you don't scan them yet. We still need some time to refic more fictionals. But it's up to you, ultimately. At the very least, don't use your batman skills to obtain all 4 pieces just yet, as that would end the game.

I don't think that you can messesarly "end" the game with those type of characters behind it.

Did the store stop you from taking it, or did you just not take it because that would cause it to merge back into the wall?

Also to follow up on Finch, what pony was on the bag?

Can you post it on here, please? I think I can identify it in a flash.
