Okay Rookie, get to work! That could be anyone calling Wendy and her well-being is in our hands. Seeing as you've just got here you can use one of our special tools, the Mobile Scanner, to trace Wendy's calls. So, your first job here is to find Wendy's mobile phone number. Get to it.
This task was accompanied by Wendy's First Transmission and clicking on the task icon leads you to another webpage with a "mobile scanning device" i.e. your first task.
Once on the "mobile scanning device" page, view the source code to reveal a hidden message:
I am just a lonely web page, holding a menial task and a flash animation to test you.
I am not actually a mobile scanner at all.
The hidden number means nothing.
I don’t actually do anything.
It’s generally a good life, being a red herring… probably far better then the life of a tuna fish.
The problem in being a part of TSR Agent testing and analysis protocol is that I have the self awareness and knowledge to know I look impressive, but I don’t scan mobiles. This often installs in me a whimsical sense of existential gloom.
It is not however the fate of this webpage to acknowledge this.
The point was merely hypothetical.
Please don’t talk to the webpages. -TSR
Then, either by reading farther down in the source code or highlighting the webpage itself, you can see the telephone number…
As it turns out, it was only Wendy's mother checking up on her and here is the follow up video. There is also a short message from TSR after completion of the task.
Thank you for jumping through another hoop of The Sky Remains 6th Dimension Detective Agency, agent testing and analysis protocol.
So it was only Wendy's mother on the phone, doing what she does every day, trying to convince Wendy to let her come over and help. It looks as if she's only succeeded in annoying Wendy. However, Wendy has asked for our help. So we must do everything we can.
By the way, did you really think Wendy's phone line was actually being scanned by that web page? We must remind you that you're not Jack Bower or some other fictional hero you know!
OK Rookie here's your first real task. Find a more personal source of information about Wendy and perhaps we can then find out who that man in the photographs is.
This task was accompanied by Wendy's Second Transmission and clicking on the task icon leads you to a page with Wendy's family photos, and also asks you to enter the name of a website where more info on Wendy can be found.
Agent, Something odd is definitely going on here. Lets have a look around Wendys web site and see if we can find something useful! Remember, you will need to hone your instincts in order to make a good Sky Remains detective; sometimes its the things that you're not looking for that can help you the most.
Perusing Wendy's website, you notice two strange pictures with people in the background not visible at first glance directly from her homepage. Further investigation will lead you to try to find a subdirectory, if you find yourself to a 404 error page, you will notice a children's drawing which is signed Grmilet. but the name of the pic is different and also your answer:
Could it be some type of paranormal entity? Or possibly a troublesome housemate?! Try following up leads on 'Harry Skinery.' Wendy has scanned in the notes she found and uploaded them here.
On this new page of Wendy's website, there is another picture that has a clickable area on the tree which takes you to a new page and another picture, which is "scannable" by clicking the "SCAN PAGE" button at the bottom of the page.
Transposing the images onto a 9x9 grid and changing it to numerical values turns it into a soduko puzzle with a distinct solve and the highlighted values are (3,1,7,5) which, after being switched to it's alphabetical component, spells
After solving this task, you are promoted and receive a bronze badge.
Wendy is experiencing her first contractions; her baby is trying to tell her that he or she really needs to be born! We are now her only point of contact and the situation is becoming increasingly dangerous for Wendy. You must work urgently. Our field Agents have found new information, Clickhere to read uncovered correspondences between Wendy and 'Harry Skinery.'
By examining Harry's letter to Wendy, you notice shadowed letters which spell out "artifactsun" which lead you to another page on Wendy's website. Here you find another picture depicting a list of plot points. Replacing the dot with a comma, you can now use these as (X,Y) coordinates drawing a line from the coords on the left to the ones on the right. When you overlay these on Harry's letter, it now crosses out more letters which spell "YOU MUST FIND THE THREE KEYS TO OPEN GATES OF CAGES" thus giving you the answer…
Wendy is locked in her room! It is really starting to look like possible poltergeist activity. Whats on that drawing? We have uncovered more of Harry's files.
This task was accompanied by Wendy's Sixth Transmission and clicking on the task icon prompts you to investigate more on something to do with "sixteen". There is also a link to another page on Wendy's website showing this poem:
In the beginning there was one light, one source, we were the one and all.
Over time cracks formed, the Omni fell sick, great shards shattered, splintered away.
And so the fractured multiverse came to be.
The tiny sections walled off from one anther came to believe they where all that was and all that would ever be, our universe is but one of an infinite number of these shards.
An endless concertina of realities folded over and over, so very close and yet infinitely separated.
one shade of the many rainbow colours of the white light of the Omni.
++Method for Solving:
The idea of the scales is that you had to make the total weight of the left side of each balance bar equal that of the total weight on the right side of each bar. Balloons "lifted" the bar by the amount indicated above the balloon, so a bar would be that much lighter, and this had to be taken into account when calculating the weight of each.
Once you figured out which weights and balloons went on each side to balance the bar, you then put in the letter corresponding with the number over the balloon or under the weight. The slightly complicating factor was that "N" and "X" had the same value, which didn't add much to the difficulty of the puzzle.
Once you had replaced the weights with the letters, you simply had to rearrange the weights/balloons that you had placed so that those and the already placed weights/balloons formed recognizable words. The solution is shown in the Puzzle Solve Pics section under Puzzle 7 Solve.
Getting to the page to enter the answer, you were given 16 _.
The child's drawing mentions Sam Skinery by name. What does it mean 'he will be gone forever', if he cant speak to Wendy? She is very upset, we must help her. This error page has appeared on Wendy's web site. please check it out.
This task was accompanied by Wendy's Seventh Transmission and clicking on the task icon prompts you to decipher Sam Skinery's message to Wendy. There is also a link to another page on Wendy's website. Choosing "select all" shows a hidden message to Wendy. "WENDY WE MUST TALK I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO CONTACT YOU FOR A VERY LONG TIME"
There is also some code at the bottom of the page with another blurred url.
There were 2 way to solve this puzzle. The first and easiest was to just squint at the blurred URL. The 2nd, (proper) way to solve was to change the zeros to dots and the 11's to dashes, thus making a morse code. Using, the bolded letters as row and section markers for the grid, you can find the morse strings to substitute in the site. Some of the letters (non-bold) are given to you already. Doing this (or just squinting) you should come up with "samtrapped", leading you to another error page.
This page contains a diagonal transposition grid, and using the hint of "distortion" and arranging the letters alphabetically to form "diinoorstt". After that, you transpose the grid to reveal a message: "WEANDY THIS IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOU WILL NEVER KNOW" Thus, the keyword "important" led us to yet another page.
This page contained another picture with a caption saying "IN THIS DARKNESS I CAN'T SEE". From this, it is deducted that whoever made it was blind and it was a braille cipher. After decrypting, we get the final answer to puzzle 7.
Wendy is now having very strong and regular contractions. It is such a pity she turned down her mother's offer of help, she must be regretting it now. Wendy is now in great danger, she may be going into labour but she is locked in her room. Who or what is holding her back? Perhaps this mystery found in Harrys files might hold an answer.
