    Of course once I'm back in the mood to make another GRAND return, there's an announcement that the site is finally resting its head for a well-deserved slumber. It was inevitable, especially since the traffic around here understandably has drifted into the slow lane because of personal reasons and priorities.
    I've been around Valucre for about 7 years. While it doesn't match the length of seasoned members, I have seen a lot during my stay. I've seen people come and go, achieve their dreams and blossom into dazzling human beings. I've made memorable connections and had the chance to write/code/work with wonderful people that I'll always keep close to my heart. Furthermore, I dare say that I consider(ed) this site another home for me and that it has helped me improve my writing.
    To that, I say thank you.
    I'm not the one for long-winded goodbyes and sappy reminisces. Honestly, I don't even think that this is goodbye - it's just another chapter closing with another one beginning.
    I don't know if I'll migrate to the other forum. I might take this time to really focus on myself and what I need to do. But, if I do... y'all better be ready for my extravagant entrance. With more characters, more HTML, more ARGs and more Kay-flair.
    See you on the flippity flip, space cowboys.

    Aiming to put up an art commission page this week, for reals. For now have this piece of Best Peacekeeper Michael Commanger.

    I'll also be dumping whatever else new art I produce in this thread in the Art Club if anyone wants to 👀

    I am an Ingsol, descendant of the second branch of the Obeli. I am born of every general and court adviser that has molded the face of civilization. The knowledge to puppet human nature comes as easy as breathing. Our people are a great machine, toiling away at the underpinnings of geopolitics. But not all Ingsol are emperors or kings, the faces of nations. Some of us are mere cogs. Essential, yet insignificant in the greater scheme. We Ingsol like our games. Puzzles. Riddles. Strategy. The ones high up play with cities and people like chess pieces. For low-level scum like me, our choices are more limited. But I am an Ingsol. And I've found a back door into Eustace Monroe's newest pet. And we're going to play a game. The events for the next 72 hours are not included in the OBELUS canon.
    Enjoy the show.

    To everyone doing the K(ay)RG™ shindig, I want to say thank you for participating and I hope your patience has mercy on me. I'm just going to throw it out there that, at the moment, every element of the game is being created by me and me only.
    So, it'll take some time to generate each section of the game because all the blood and sweat gets in my eyes, you feel. [cue wiping my face with a towel] Luckily, this isn't my first rodeo. As long as you guys are hooked and having fun, that's all that matters.
    Friendly Warning (because I'm not a Mister E): Each 'chapters' will get more difficult and keep your ? and ? open, fam.

    Yet The King did point to homeward shore,
    And The Holy avenged your plight afore.
    Now you toil on this, the thriving moor,
    As The Bear, The King, and The Holy war.

    Brown or white, yellow or green, I can be every color or none. 
    At first I am many, perhaps even a billion,
    but in the end , I am only one. 
    When can a billion be just one?
    I tell you when you're found
    and can warn you when you're lost,
    in this land I am bound,
    Tell me friend, where should you post?

    I have a feeling that this is some kind of digraph encryption scheme, i.e. a playfair, two-square, four-square cipher, or some other digraph encryption scheme.
    The image / image titles may also bear relevance, and thus I post that here as well:

    I would spend all night trying to break this if it weren't for classes tomorrow (damn you school!).
    Thus, I am turning to you for some help with this.
     
    In my arrogance, I thought I could do this alone, but time will not permit me to spend too much time. Thus, as a result, I came to the conclusion that the only way we can solve this mystery is by working together.
    I know a few secrets (some I am not going to divulge because they are out of the scope of the IC-portion of this ARG), and if you have any questions w.r.t. to things that I have found so far, just ask.
    @OBELUS, @Grand Mainframe,
    We -- as a community -- are going to figure this out.
