I've been cooking up a little project for a while. A continuation of my

first Slenderblog, if you will. And now, it's begun.


We Shall Be Gods


But it can't go on without a little...help. It's pretty much an ARG-Lite or a little less then that. A conundrum of puzzles with a plot. So, you like puzzles, and want to find out some of the answers to loose ends from my first blog, then please, do read it. But there'll be no Nazis this time. And don't worry if you haven't read my first blog (Protip: It wasn't that great in my opinion), you should be able to understand it. Hopefully. Even if you don't, you can still have fun with the puzzles.


Shameless plug, over.

There's a hint for the first puzzle up now. I admit, it is a fairly difficult one to crack, and in the context of things, is possibly the least important part of the plot/puzzles/thing.


(or is it? Razz)

Well, considering how much I'm loving The Things You Shall See so far, I'm definitely going to check this one out. Looks like I'll have to read through your first blog, then.

Given I have followed your first blog, I jumped for the chance to do this.

Hope that helps. I kinda regret using that one so early on now, but it's too late to change it now.

I remember some sort of creepy topic on the 4chan ~paranormal~(/x/) board somebody posted one time where the guy basically did that and hid a bunch of other files in a certain way, so that when you'd open them in a specific fashion it'd make a weird ass .txt file, was some pretty cool stuff all in all. Is that the type of puzzle you're shootin' for here with this blog?

So, after unzipping the file, I got this:

The Book of Nothing

1. In the beginning, before everything, there was nothing. A blank space. An empty space. Nothing. There was no form or thought. There was no emotion or instinct. There was only the Nothing. No time, no sense, no sound. Only Nothing
2. Then came the arrival of everything. From the Nothing came the worlds. From the Nothing came life. At first it was small. Separate individual forms, among the nothing. These joined with one another, through chance alone. They joined and took on shape. They gained form.
3. These forms began to feel. Their senses sharpened, as did their minds. Then it occurred. The first thought. Echoing out among the white darkness. Echoing out alone. Then soon, another followed. Then more again.
4. Among the blank canvas, came emotion. Fear, happiness, pain. All in an instant. These forms these creatures, looked at one another, taking in each other with sight. Then they began to communicate.
5. The talked, with both mind and mouth, forming connections between one another. They began to share between each other. Share thoughts and feelings. They began to name things. They were the First Ones. The Creators. The Runners of a new dawn.
6. But that is a lie…
He was there, before they arrived. Watching.

Tried a Caesar Cipher, but it didn't work. Not sure how to go about this one.

As for the audio... I reversed it, then increased the speed of the playback. What is this I don't even-

Just going to post to clear up possible confusion.


Okay, I should mention that this is heading into its second phase, which will be a little puzzle light. Mainly because they weren't really working, which is my fault, and they needed re-thinking. Hopefully they'll return a little better later. The title and background change is due to the plot arc I'm embarking on (beginning with my latest post), and 'We Shall Be Gods' sounded a little pretentious. Files are also available through Mediafire, because I was having trouble with the other services. They don't contain viruses and stuff for anyone worried.


Also, some of the things recently introduced I'm planning on making open source at some point. But if you REALLY want to use either the 'Apostles of the Sun' or the 'Path of Golden Radiance', than feel free to contact me and I'll see what can be arranged.


That's it, I guess.
