ADDITIONAL: CAKE, CIDER, FROSTBITE
Well done everyone! A glorious victory that shall echo through eternity and haunt the Edinburgh Resistance from this day forth.

The Scottish Enlightenment (Scots: Scots Enlichtenment, Scottish Gaelic: Soilleireachadh na h-Alba) was the period in 18th century Scotland characterised by an outpouring of intellectual and scientific accomplishments.
In Scotland, the Enlightenment was characterised by a thorough going empiricism and practicality where the chief qualities were; improvement, virtue, and practical benefit for the individual and society as a whole. It was asserted that it was of fundamental importance that humans must defend their choice through a combination of active scientific reason and the rejection of any authority that could not be justified by reason. They held to an belief in the ability of humanity to effect changes for the better in society and nature, guided only by reason. Today the Enlightened aim to uphold these noblest of principles.
At 4 pm on Saturday the 31st of January 2015, nearly 70 UK Enlightened from far and wide joined together to once again benefit society by repeating history and bringing Enlightenment, virtue and improvement to the blue menace of Edinburgh. In the space of only a couple of minutes over 150 portals were neutralized, captured, modded, linked and fielded.
Several aftershocks were felt over the next 48 hours as the voracious Enlightened agents, fueled by the vast quantities of the finest ice cream in the land, sought out blue portals in every corner of the city and crushed any resistance found.
