So, throughout the course of this Investigation, I've encountered people who wanted to start but didn't know where to turn. As a result, I've created this list of sources that Investigators commonly turn to in order to make sense of what's going on.
It should be known that these are sources that have been credited and verified as canon or legitimate. There is usually some way to confirm these sources and the information that they release as legit. i.e, the Ingress Report(IR), the Niantic Project G+ page or other means.
"Everyday, more would be leaked to me... a slow drip that was turning into a flood. That flood of cryptic, intriguing, worrying information continues to this day. At first, I wasn’t sure where this was all going. Now, if my suspicions are right, in the words of Bob Seger, “I wish I didn’t know now what I didn’t know then.”
These are those sources:
1. -this G+ Account is the center of the Investigation. Every couple of days, new intel will leak regarding the status of individuals and corporations and secret societies that play a role in the world of XM. The person currently running the account is
2. -the former Operator of the Niantic Project G+ Account and the originator of the website www.nianticproject.com
Left the Investigation in Oct. 2013 to go off the grid and clear his mind on matters. Has since returned and presents to other Investigators questions regarding the current status of the situation at hand.
3. -The creator of Operation Essex (https://plus.google.com/communities/117368337781687210813), a community where Investigators and Truthseekers work together to uncover the mysteries of the Niantic Project and the world around us. Used to be a professor at some university. Has memory problems and his messages, while cryptic, hold much value in terms when deciphered and understood.
4. -XM Resarcher, Sensitive(this means that he is uuniquely sensitive to the flow of XM. Many individuals in the world of Niantic fall in this category). Former Special Operations soldier and now a historian, trying to catalog and record the effects of XM throughout time and their impact on humanity. At one point, was known to be a 'simulacrum' or a XM construct of the real Johnson, who was killed in Afghanistan two years ago and resurrected through an unusual process only known by a secret society who refers to themselves as 13MAGNUS. Currently has regained his humanity and is now on an opposing path with the Anti-MAGNUS.
4. -XM Scientist, Researcher, Sensitive. Former lead scientist on the Niantic Project. Currently trapped in the Portal Network following the re-assembly of her Shards during the Shonin Anomaly Series.
5. -musician, Sensitive.
6. -XM Researcher, Sensitive. Currently the leading expert on Shaper Glyphs. Currently in the Portal Network after re-assembly of his Shards during Persepolis.
7. -XM Researcher, Sensitive. Currently in unknown whereabouts.
8. -XM Researcher, Sensitive. Currently in unknown whereabouts.
9. -XM Researcher, Sensitive, Stage Magician.
10. -XM Sensitive, Host of the Ingress Report.
11. -co host of the Ingress Report. Doesn't pop around much. Hoping she does sometime soon.
12. -works alongside Hank Johnson as an author to publish his adventures. Has a novella called the Alignment: Ingress
13. -XM Sensitive. Author of the Niantic Project: Ingress Novella, the Level 8 Novella and author of the Exotic Matters blog.
14. -XM Researcher, Sensitive. Creator of the Ingress Scanner.
15. -XM Sensitive. former Leader of the Enlightened. Currently deceased.
16. -XM Sensitive. Former vessel for ADA. Current whereabouts unknown. Only Investigator to have been both Enlightened and Resistance.
17. -Based in the USA
18. -Based in Russia? Honestly, i've never known where this one's at.
19. -Based in China.
20. -the sentient artificial intelligence developed by the Niantic Project, she has since then grown and evolved far beyond that. Is currently aligned with the N'zeer.
Outside the G+ pages, there also exists the treasure trove of information compiled by (wonderful job in doing so, btw!):
Ingress Year One, part one
Ingress Year One, part two
INGRESS REPORT | YEAR TWO - The Investigation (I)
INGRESS REPORT | YEAR TWO - The Investigation (II)
Part of Ingress started with the investigator board. There are two volumes consolidating this information helping truthseekers down the rabbit hole.
And finally there is the series of comics: Epiphany Night / Escape from Niantic / The Niantic Pursuit illustrated by Tycho
And, for even more information, there exists the Niantic Project Wiki, which has remained a powerful resource for information: https://niantic.schlarp.com/start
So, the next time you encounter a budding Investigator who may need help figuring out where to start, perhaps giving them this list may assist them. I sure hope this helps!
In the name of the Investigation, I release this information. I can only hope it serves our journey well.
This summer, with agents and , I will be travelling across Asia on the Trans-Siberian Railways (but the correct term is "Trans-Mongolian" as we will travel [westbound] through China, Mongolia and Russia).
We will be hosting cross-faction meetups if possible in the cities that are on the map below and we will be starting soon to contact the local communities in order to set times and places.
We hope we will meet many of you and we will bring some swags (courtesy of Niantic Labs) :)

在衝這個章的過程中 也發生了些好玩的事，例如有人幫忙收mods收到出名了，不在是 神仕 變成交易大盤商了XD 100FA 出去 變成好多百MH回來......... 或是一見面就被人打槍說 我沒MODS了 喔! XDXD 辛苦你們了
當然我自已也幹了些好笑的事 例如把某友軍的沙發上滿滿LA ?! ORZ 或把 整個南港到汐止 基隆上滿滿的 LA !? 昏QQ 當然也有半夜去海大 或中什麼院上MODS 預上 看不見的玩家在打塔......不要問很可怕WWWW
反抗軍加油!!!!!!!!!!! 第五萬科盾是上在 十萬青年十萬軍，所以會有十萬大軍(大誤~~~~~
