I find it mildly amusing that they use the glyph for change, either intentionally or unintentionally, to mark roadwork in my area.

I also notice the "truth" glyph quite a bit in roadwork areas.

+Oliver Lynton-Wolfe The day before Obsidian Anomaly in Wien, something happened here. I placed Obsidian and Resistance Beacons over some portals during an enlightned L8 farm ambuscade, some of them obtained L5 items after a five glyph sequence, still duplicated portal frackers. Since then nobody was able to remove those beacons from this place, they are unbelievably still there since weeks ago. I think this ONE OF KIND event may take us to some tangible clue about Obsidian Shield and Portal Survey. I choose for the XM glyph by reflex. Said portal is Fontana Di Telesforo Fini, Via Castelmaraldo, 63, 41121 Modena MO, Italy #IngressPortalSurvey #InvestigateIngress

Have you seen this cube?

Calling on the hive mind (no pun intended) to identify this structure (and the portal associated with it).

Look first in Russia and Taiwan, it might be somewhere else entirely, though.

So many of us following the backstory behind the current xm drought are aware of the character Pliny the Elder.  History (real history not ingress history) has it that he died trying to rescue his friend and his friends family via ship as Mount Vesuvius erupted and the wind was blowing in an unfavorable direction, trapping him on the shore where he was engulfed in toxic gases.  

There is another Pliny the Elder, which has a cult following.  Being a hop head I have heard about this mythical brew from my other brew friends and stumbled upon this story.  Evidently the folks at Google know all about this as well.

Pliny the Elder inspires beer hunters around the world to search for just one bottle.

Yep, local place here in Denver gets then in regularly, but you have to ask. It's very good; although there are better brews coming out now, Pliny the Elder will always hold a historical place in history, and beer history.

What's a portal survey?

We are two opposite faction agents living in the same neighbourhood. We had a close portal nearby our homes which can easily destroyed and deployed without much effort to gain easy AP.

But both of us is ensured that according to Ingress TOS win-trading is not permitted. So we agreed not to fight for the nearby portal but upgraded it to L8. This way we hack items only on our own, then use them to fight at distance portals from our location at our best effort.

But some of our teammates think that it is still cheating. What is the proper resolution for these kinds of portals?

That's the point.

Win trading is an intentional agreement for mutual gain.  I'm not sure how I can reword it to keep saying that.

So, those of you whom are confused why there's no XM, listen up for the bulk explanation. For those missing news, the ENL obtained the Obsidion Shield, a device made by the Shapers to repel the N'zeer. As with all Shaper gear, the shield is made of XM...and like the majority of gear it takes XM to activate/deploy. The thing is...a device made to repel an alien race from the entire planet is not going to run on your everyday AAA battery. It makes complete sense that in order to use a device that repels another race from a planet that the powersource be the planet. So, the shield is draining the XM of the world thus making a drought. This drought not only would impact natural XM but also the XM produced by portals and presumably the items produced from portals (since the only difference is items being structured XM).

Turn it off you say? Easier said than done... Notice that the Acolyte said to DEPLOY the Obsidion Shield. Do you know what else is deployed? Shields, resonators, turrets, force amps, heat sinks, multi-hacks. With the exception of resonators, only destroying the device or the host of the device (portals) turns it off. Obviously we are not going to try blowing up earth to destroy the shield, so we need to destroy the shield...and to do that we need to know where it is. The only one who presumably knows where it resides is the Acolyte, whom seems to have disappeared since the "Obsidion Drought". However, once discovered we can either destroy it or if not that easy plan for its eventual destruction. Until then, we will be trapped in the drought where common place items are now more of a commodity and currency for recharging, items being traded for powercubes may become very common eventually.

So how do we look for the shield itself? Does it present as a mod?

It was not a trap! The warnings were ignored!

There is some talk of the Obsidian Shield being a trap....this ignores the great big warning signs on the Obsidian Shield itself!

The shield has 13 glyphs, in order in line.

Those who won and held it. Those leaders who decided not to share the information publicly.
Those theorists who gave the artefact to the acolyte.
Those theorist who suggested giving the artefact to Jahan
All choose to ignore the warnings.

While I don't want to go down the road of finding fault, there must be a sense of responsibilty if we want to correct, fix and avoid repeating past mistakes.
Apologists who ignore the past failings and past mistakes will force those same mistakes to be repeated.

Don't let this become a faction thing or an attempt to ignore the huge mistakes or past misdeeds, let it be a learning experience!
Don't let those past mistakes lead us down a path of further failure.


Demand answers. Demand a solid parh forward for humanity.
Denand prudence and certainty!

The Enlightened Team Analysis Of The Obsidian Artifacts

As most of you know, the Artifacts were won as part of an +Ingress  challenge that started with +Susanna Moyer. As such, in order for our global Enlightened team to make the best decision when presented with such a tough choice, we needed to analyze it.

Special thanks to +Andrea Marcolini +GreyWagtail ENL Agent +absolute 119966 and others for help with the analysis.

Now that we have been allowed to reveal the complete Artifact images, let us show you our interpretation of them.

This is the second of a two part series we are releasing today.
