PHYSICAL ITEMS

Contact Letter

  • Sofia figures if we can track down the time the video was taken and check out the light presets, that we will be able to deduce who else was involved in the conversation with Marcus.

Contract

  • Someone was looking to work with the company that made the mint tin.

Instruction Sheet

  • This is a legend for the light booth buttons and controls.

Journal Page

  • This is a page out of Lillian's journal.
  • She wrote a few lines in code.
  • Using Nathan's sticker instructions from the team morale assessment, we can decipher the messages.
  • The capital letters followed by numbers are "coordinates" to find on the sticker sheets.
  • Replace the capital letters with the first letter of the sticker meanings.
    • For example, B7 = orange heart = maneuvering outstanding. D4 = yellow rectangle = loop improvement needed.
    • Therefore, B7 = MO and D4 = LI
    • MO + ra + LI + ty = MORALITY
  • Once decoded, the messages read:
    • MORALITY
    • LIABILITY
    • INDEMNITY
    • NON COMPETE
    • CONFIDENTIALITY

Light Booth Presets

  • This is a list of presets for certain events.

Mint Tin, containing Stickers

  • Caffeinated mints?! Never heard of such a thing.

Pin

  • This is a ferret.

Pitch Folder, containing Pitch Deck

  • On the back of the last page, there appears to be a conversation between Carol and Marcus.
  • In the back of the folder is further conversation with a code.
  • Marcus gives a hint for what the code is.
  • The pin depicts a ferret.
  • Each message is decoded by adding the number to the letters that follow it.
    • 2dc = d + 2 = F / c + 2 = e
    • 1qq = q + 1 = r / q + 1 = r
    • 3b = b + 3 = e
    • 4p = p + 4 = t
  • Once decoded, the messages read:
    • HARRISON'S CONTRACTOR
    • KILL HIS DEAL
    • CHANGED YOUR MIND
    • FERRET

Rink Room Reservation Schedule

  • There is more code at the bottom of the page. Use the same method used for the pitch folder.
  • The message at the bottom is a simple Caesar cipher. Shift the letters forward in the alphabet using the number that appears beforehand.
  • Once decoded, the message reads:
    • "I PULLED a few STRINGS for that CONTRACT, so don't tell ANNA until the DEAL IS COMPLETE. You'll be FREE soon enough."

Team Morale Assessment

  • Nathan gives instructions on how to use the stickers that are in the mint tin.
