Journal of the Emerald Specter 69: Pump Up The Volume

Here’s a little bit of a different column, I’m going to be writing about two topics (with one obviously taking the majority of the column). There was a movie that I wanted to discuss, sort of in the vein of the nostalgia trip I took with the last three weeks, but without the solo RPG […]

Emerald Specter 25: Round Up

I embark on the 25th Emerald Specter column without a specific topic, but I’ll be doing a lot of writing… so strap yourself in, this ride is going to be all over the place. I’ve been giving a lot of thought, lately, to covering topics on a regular basis on the site. I have seriously […]

You want supplies?  You want bursters?  You want resonators?  Then come on down to *location redacted* for the best ones of them all!  Level 16s!  Come down to *location redacted* to farm the best Ingress supplies around!  Hurry, available while supplies last.

Ingress Intel 2: Hacking A Virus

Ingress Intel 1: Meeting Niantic

On Friday, August 8, 2014, a member of Niantic will appear in my local area, Bismarck, ND, to discuss “the scanner functionality” with members from both factions.  As he/she is completely unaware, I’m almost positive this meeting will devolve into chaos. I hold out small hope, though, that it won’t. I play Ingress.  In my […]
