Recently the formerly known Agency was rebranded as Merces Letifer, which some people may not have particularly liked, but I am trying to change how the faction works and how it will work going forward, doing this to try to bring a lighter view from the community in regards to the faction and with this came a recruitment drive for the faction, so I decided to work similarly to the Cicada 3301 mystery (look it up if you don't know about it). Since the recruitment is finished and we have found the new faction members, I have decided to explain the three cyphers because heaps of people who partook in it still haven't got it. I made this on 4/20.
Using a basic casefile overlay, I landed a QR code on it leading to a string of text, the text read:
"Merces Letifer is looking for highly intelligent individuals. To find them, we have devised a test.
There is a unique box hidden in the top right corner of San Andreas. Find the box, and it will guide you in finding us.
We look forward to speaking with the select few that will make it all the way through.
Send what you find using PGP encryption to nzh3fv6jc6jskki3-at-protondotnet ((forum pm merces letifer))
This would lead players to the top of San Andreas where a lightly hidden set of objects were placed by myself and it was asked that each player would come back and explain what he/she saw, there was also a decoy in the QR code explaining that there would be a box, rather than a knife and a devil's mask. Here is what those who found it saw:
Part two of the recruitment drive would be sent in reply to any successful answer as to what was placed at the top right corner of San Andreas.
