Forum user Selana posted a [link] informing the community that a new [ARG] would soon be beginning. The post led to a signup to opt into the ARG. Audio in the background played in Spanish.

Forum User AstaFarien transcribed the audio[1]

"Here is the text to the prayer it's called "Oración en contra de los maleficios" or prayer against evil spells:

Dios, nuestro Señor, Rey de todos los tiempos, Grande y Todopoderoso, tú que lo creaste todo y que lo transformas todo simplemente por tu voluntad; tú que cambiaste en rocío las llamas del horno que había sido calentado siete veces más y protegiste y salvaste a tus tres santos hijos:

Tú eres el doctor y médico de nuestras almas. Tú eres la salvación de los que se vuelven a ti. Te suplico que anules, destruyas y apartes de mí todo poder, presencia y maquinaciones diabólicas; cada influencia del mal, maleficio o mal de ojo, y todas las malas acciones dirigidas hacia mí.

Donde haya envidia y malicia, dame abundancia de bondad, paciencia, victoria y caridad. Oh Señor, tu que amas al hombre, te ruego que extiendas tus poderosas manos y tu grandísimo y poderoso brazo y vengas en mi ayuda.

Envía tu ángel de paz sobre mí, para proteger mi cuerpo y mi alma. Que él pueda mantener alejado y vencido a todo el poder del maligno y cada palabra venenosa o maliciosa invocada en mi contra por personas corruptas y envidiosas.

Entonces, bajo la protección de tu autoridad, podré con gratitud cantar: “El Señor es mi salvación; ¿a quién temeré?”. No temeré mal alguno porque tú estás conmigo, mi Dios, mi fortaleza, mi poderoso Señor, Señor de la Paz, Padre de todos los tiempos. Amén."

She also translated it[2]:

"Prayer against Malefice 1

God, our Lord, King of ages, All-powerful and Almighty, you who made everything and who transform everything simply by your will; you who changed into dew the flames of the seven-times hotter furnace and protected and saved your three holy children: You are the doctor and physician of my soul. You are the salvation of those who turn to you. I beseech you to make powerless, banish, and drive out every diabolic power, presence and machination; every evil influence, malefice or evil eye and all evil actions aimed against me. Where there is envy and malice, give me an abundance of goodness, endurance, victory and charity. O Lord, you who love man, I beg you to reach out your powerful hands and your most high and mighty arms and come to my aid. Send your angel of peace over me, to protect my body and soul. May he keep at bay and vanquish every evil power, every poison or malice invoked against me by corrupt and envious people.

Then under the protection of your authority may I sing with gratitude, “The Lord is my salvation; whom should I fear?” I will not fear evil because you are with me, my God, my strength, my powerful Lord, Lord of peace, Father of all ages. Amen."

Ulfserker posted a transcription of communication from Agent Miska that occured in the chatroom of the situation room. [30]

Hello Agents, I acknowledge the progression you have all made to find the situation room and that you have managed to start it up.

Right now we are monitoring the Morning Light who are operating this room, to find further information about this division.

One thing i have found is that 12.12.12 is an important date, i am not sure why yet but its on my radar.

I urge you all to further recruit more agents into the situation room, this is a very grave situation and we need all hands on deck.

That is all i have for you right now, i will be monitoring the situation. Thank you agents

Throughout the time the broadcast started, various screen would change to a semi-permanent state, showing a GIF of various events. TehMuffinMan posted [31] links to the first set ofindividual GIFs.

December 10, 2012: Message Revealed

Great Men

An update around 05:00am UTC time (midnight East Coast US), seven new screens appeared and the Bomber Explosion GIF was returned. Ozeagle posted a link [32] to the second set. During this time, forum member Ariensky Crowley [33] while manipulating browser cookies left by The Situation Room site, managed also to find a previously unseen video. Shortly there after, all of the previous images that were showing were again replaced by static aside from the Test Card.

Members who logged in later in the day began reporting seeing the full video of the man in the GIF DIWD5.gif with audio playing. He recites the full audio that was referenced in many of the phone calls.

"Great men aren't born in greatness, they rather grow great and greater.

As you strive to survive a life that is here again to defend, to fight and even to die for, remember this:

those who leave shall survive through those who live on.

So enjoy each moment as it might be your last.

It is now up to you.

I don't know who you are yet, but the real question is, do you?"

At approximately 11:22pm UTC time, the lightbulb GIF returned.

Other GIFs began returning, and a new one as well with user Skjala posted frames of here.[34]. User Girlbrush posted a cleaned up version of the frame which had red text [35]. Other images included pieces of a face, which were assembled by Skjala posted [36]. Shadrach stated that The Situation Room chat discovered that the assembled picture was of Caesar [37].

After identifying the image as Caesar, user Alecient suggests the image is a hint to use a Caesar cipher [38]. Wahoozerman with the help of Zeitgeist find a new GIF in a pastebin[39] by using a ROT-13 'caesar' cipher on the red text included in the new GIF. The pastebin page had the title ironridgewater which led users Leck and zado to the Iron Ridge Water website[40]. A summary of the steps is posted here.
