Report

SUBJECT: The Kingsmouth Code
 
The trouble with Illuminati labyrinths is they all lead to something. It reeks of desperation. However, Kingsmouth is their world, and we must accept to navigate it.

Inevitably, there will be more Illuminati codes to break in the future, ones that do not lead to mere material gains. Learn to see through their paranoid and burdened way of thinking, and their world will be yours to manipulate.

In the meantime, remember to bring these artifacts when you return. The Illuminati will blame the Templars for having taken them, for no one suspects the Dragon.

If you wanted the keys to the family basement, you just had to ask. Though it was super cute watching you solve our own puzzles.

As should be apparent by now, we have a thing for labyrinths. Stems from a healthy cultivation of paranoia, malice and wit.

That said, there may be Illuminati puzzles in the future that we don't have the answers to. Our historical archives are incomplete. Many Kingsmouth records were charred in the fire of 1712 and the digital transfer of compromised ancient material never goes seamlessly, regardless of what Cassini may have you believe.

Ciao-ciao

This is a splendid discovery! Gladstone will be eager to analyse these artifacts upon your return. I hope you don't think of it as pilfering. We do not pilfer; we valorise. We shall certainly do better than tossing these ancient items in some dank and forgotten cellar.

Knowing the Illuminati, there is a better than even chance they belong to us anyway.

I must admit to having given up on the fruitfulness of your expedition, but I'm glad you persevered. One suspects this won't be the last Illuminati code we shall have to break.

Dialogue

Intro      
Henry Hawthorne: Kingsmouth is a book of secrets, an Illuminated manuscript waiting for those who would read between the lines.
Henry Hawthorne: I've seen it spelled out. The hidden truth of this ... this blighted Garden of Eden.
Henry Hawthorne: For are we not seekers of knowledge, you and I?
Henry Hawthorne: Even a man of God can have his eyes opened to further enlightenment and Illumination.
Henry Hawthorne: To be illuminated. Under the eye.
Henry Hawthorne: The pyramid?
Henry Hawthorne: The Illuminati. I'm with the Illuminati.
Henry Hawthorne: I don't have a badge or anything like that. I'm what you might call a, uh, a hobbyist member.
Henry Hawthorne: But I earned it. I did extensive research on the net.
Henry Hawthorne: The code words I followed led me to forums - secret forums, forums that don't show up on Google.
Henry Hawthorne: And I'm an avid poster. A valued poster.
Henry Hawthorne: I know there are paths in Kingsmouth not on any map. The work of the Illuminati is everywhere.
Henry Hawthorne: A secret gospel, chapter and verse, throughout the town. Signs and formulae.
Henry Hawthorne: That's why you're here isn't it?
Henry Hawthorne: Now, my work is not... exhaustive. There are elements of their-- of OUR grand plan I may have overlooked.
Henry Hawthorne: Tiny, tiny details still left unexplored.
Henry Hawthorne: I trust we have each other's disclosure.
