    [initiate transmission] Hello world, Are you receiving this? Good. I do not have a lot of time, so you will have to listen very carefully. My name is TaCO and I am a media student student living in Holland.

I can do Normal and Elite dungeons and normal scenario's, but other than that I am usually no good. I also have decided to not do any nightmare content, because I just don't enjoy it. I am a filthy casual. I need your help with... [transmission end]

    Hello guys, My name is TheChosenOne and this is your introduction for the Sanctuary Initiative as well as an overview for the story of roleplay events and Alternate Reality Games involving the Sanctuary and the Keepers so far.

What is the Sanctuary Initiative? The Sanctuary Initiative has been created in order to make it easier for both old and new players alike to participate in events related the Sanctuary and The Keepers. Posts about on-going events and storylines will be posted in this part of the forums and additional information and recaps will be added after events are finished. The story so far In 2013, the players are introduced to an organization called the Keepers by a woman called Evelyne Ryan. The Keepers are a mysterious group led by a shady man called James Zimbardo. After being put through a basic training by Jason Haskins and Eloise Cortez, the players began to work together to restore the organization to its former glory. It is revealed that Evelyne Ryan is the adopted daughter of Eloise and Zimbardo. It is also revealed that Zimbardo is only serving as an interim leader after the death of Eloise’s parents who were killed during an accident. During the new elections, Eloise and one of her colleagues are chosen as the new leaders of the Keepers. [read more] In 2014, the Keepers create a group called the Sanctuary Network.

  8. The story so far [OOC]

    Ghosts from the Past In January 2016, a new event called Ghosts from the Past continued the story of Season 3, and introduced new player to the story of the Sanctuary and the Keepers through the Sanctuary Initiative. During this mission more details were uncovered about the Extant Project, and the people behind it. Evelyne revealed that her real father, Owen Ryan, was the leader of the project. Iscariot was also revealed to be Vera Langdon, Extant's lead researcher. Evelyne started talking to the players about Exant, a research project from the 90s, ordered by Reza Cortez in order to cure diseases. She then told the agents that rumors had been going around about human trial, and that the Extant Project was shut down once the body of one of it's patients was discovered. She also told the agents that Iscariot told her that the goal of Extant was to bring the dead back to life, and create 'mindless soldiers'. Iscariot reached out again. Evelyne then revealed something that she had discovered a while ago, but not yet revealed to the public. Owen Ryan, her real father, was the man who led the Extant team. He was responsible for the experiments that happened. Once she admitted this to Iscariot, she got the following response. The second pastebin reads: Evelyne then realized that Vera was Iscariot. Next she told the agents about Vera's past. Soon after, Vera reached out on Twitter, and also retweeted Evelyne's tweet to confirm her identity. Vera kept her word and Evelyne's missing agents were released. The agents had done a failed escape attempt before being released by Vera and had managed to get a hold of some files. The files mention an island and provide a set of coordinates. Evelyne told the agents that she would go through the data and contact them again if needed.
  9. Let's do that some time next week.
  10. Discussion Thread [OOC]

    Thanks for the feedback guys! IC reports and comments for tonight's mission go here.
  11. I'm sorry I couldn't be there today, but from what I am hearing things turned out.... alright. At least we now have a target, and we know who we are up against. This must not have been easy for though, Evelyne. Being confronted with your past like this. He was your father after all. It must be hard to think of him as a bad guy. Ugh... I think I need to take you and Jason for a drink sometime.

Evelyne also send Jimmy Freeman on a mission with a boat called the Discordia, but no futher information was revealed about this. Furthermore, Evelyne has been busy investigating Iscariot and his agents.

    Operation Chess The next part of Season Two, Operation Chess started with posts in the Sanctuary Forum RPG that re-introduced Eloise Cortez and teased the escape of a villain that would soon turn against Sanctuary. A Storm Approaches The ARG officially started on july 4 2014, when Eloise Cortez joined Twitter and the Sanctuary Forums. A new generation of players was introduced to the Keepers via an orientation powerpoint and a video from the 2013 elections. Eloise also promised that there would a Keepers Q&A from July 7 until July 13 to give the players even more information about the organization that is behind the Sanctuary Network. A series of messages were intercepted that hinted at an attack on the Sanctuary Network. The Return of a Tyrant It is revealed that the person who is planning the attacks on Sanctuary is James Zimbardo. It was also revealed that all Sanctuary buildings have been build on top of inactive Gaia Engines and that Zimbardo was looking for the keys to activate those engines. After attacking the Seoul Sanctuary and kidnappng Evelyne, Eloise gives Zimbardo the first key in exchange for her daughter. The Kingdom Falls With two engines activated, a race against the clock begins to stop Zimbardo from activated the final three engines. Zimbardo activates the Venice key and Eloise disappears with the final two keys. Then the remaining two engines got activated. Eloise briefly resurfaces to show a few documents that she found in a safe in Zimbardo's apartment which hinted at a mysterious ritual. The players reluctantly provide Eloise with all the information they can find in the documents and Eloise disappears again. Revelations It was revealed that Eloise activated the remaining two engines together with Zimbardo, who she was pretending to work with. Then Eloise killed Zimbardo and sacrificed herself to seal the engines once and for all, not unlike her parents had done a few years ago. Evelyne was appointed as her successor. After this all the engines became inactive again. No bodies were found for Eloise or Zimbardo. The medicine managed to slowly restore Evelyne's health. Following her death a memorial service was held for Eloise and it was decided that Evelyne would take her place as the leader of the Keepers.

    Season Two The Second season started after the creation of the Sanctuary and was spread out over several events over the course of 2014. The events introduced a new generation of players to the Keepers and esthablished Sanctuary as an organization. Sanctuary 13: The Secrets of Solomon was an event hosted by the Sanctuary Network. During the event the players received four different missions: The investigation run, the dungeon runs, the item hunt and the faction cooperation pictures. A letter from Eloise Prior to the event a message from Eloise Cortez was posted on the Sanctuary Forums. The message gave more insight into the relationship between the Keepers, the Sanctuary Network and the Sanctuary Foundation as well as placing several restrictions on the event. Investigation Run Evelyne Ryan attempts to commit suicide after discovering that her biological father has died. She is eventually stopped by the players and manages to let her father go. Dungeon Run Solomon Island is known for its many secrets, every closet has a skeleton here. A ghost ship has stranded on the shores of Solomon Island, the motel has a door that goes straight to hell and an old man tells stories from a time gone by. It is up to you to go in there and discover the many Secrets that Solomon Island is hiding. Faction Cooperation Pictures It’s not all about fighting and conflicts on Solomon Island though. While you are on Solomon Island, take pictures that show off cooperation between the different factions. The Council of Venice might just reward you for your effort. Item Hunt The Phoenicians have found a treasure chest on the shores of Solomon Island. The factions are most interested in the content of this treasure chest and they have started negotiations with the Phoenicians. The Phoenicians may be pirates, but they aren’t unreasonable. They have decided that will they sell the treasure chest to the faction that provides them with the most metal, weapons and gear. The Illuminati managed to provide the most resources and acquired the chest.
