OP140: RESsellation

OP140: RESsellation

Between October 2019 and July 2020 the Tessellation global event took place. During this event the Resistance battled against Enlightened and Nemesis for “an as-yet-unannounced prize for the Faction that gets the most points”. The Tessellation was a global scavenger hunt to find hexagonal media objects to fill a 203-hex Tessellation grid. Each piece is called a Tessera (Tesserae plural), and Factions earned points for being the first to discover a given Tessera. One type of Tessera we could retrieve…

With a landmark on one of the UK’s historic coastal lines that is shinglehandedly responsible for advances in radio navigation, it is not more then fitting it gets some blue love after a period of shaper control causing unforseen side effects. Today brave RES agents used the successor of the technology first pioneered here to find their way back to this beacon and take it back from the shapers. Please help us cover the costs of this flight to keep…

OP136: Celtic Connections

OP136: Celtic Connections

On Sunday 14th a pair of intrepid Cornish agents attempted to take some long held ENL pita portals off the West Wales coast. Befriending a local pilot meant cost were minimized buy Flygressing isn’t an easy gig and several hours in the air, a few tight turns and a modicum of motion sickness made for quite an experience and unfortunately the agents only managed to smash one of the portals. Lessons learned along the way and great connections made between…

OP135: A Fair Isle

OP135: A Fair Isle

Fair Isle is a very remote island just between Orkney and the Shetlands. With 50 residents, no hotel or bar but plenty of sheep, a truly remote place to be. As you may have noticed: for the first time the Resistance legitimately controlled Fair Isle. It isn’t easy to reach Fair Isle. The weather is highly unpredictable. Flights are often cancelled and there are limited options to access the island through a small airport on Shetland. Two agents took the…

OP134: A Boat for a Fjord

OP134: A Boat for a Fjord

Dear Resistance agents, if we get access to a boat, our aim will be to attempt to gain control over the lighthouse portals in our area (for example Geitungen and Jarsteinen). The type of boat we are aiming to buy can be packed away and transported by car: This means that it will be very versatile and can be used to take portals that would otherwise be too difficult to reach. For example the sea between Karmøy (Skudneshavn) and Kvitsøy…

OP133: Griend

OP133: Griend

For a while now, the North of the Netherlands as well as parts of the UK, Iceland, etc were blocked by Enlightened links from a remote Dutch island. Since Enlightened was heavily using this portal as an anchor for permafielding Dutch mainland, some brave local agents decided to make a stand and to try and break free from the green oppression. They traveled by boat to an island near Griend and rented a plane to do a fly-by flip. Due…

OP132: A Series of Unlucky Incidents

Last week the european resistance tried to BAF Europe. As you might have seen, sadly no link went up. Due to some unlucky incidents, we had to cancel the OP when almost everything was ready. In preparation of this OP, we sent several agents to very remote locations to get rid of long standing blockers. Our agents went out of their way by car, boat, hovercraft and plane. To encourage further OPs like this one it qould be greatly appreciated…

OP131: The Spirit of Dover

OP131: The Spirit of Dover

The lighthouse on the Prince of Wales pier in Dover had been blue for a long time. When it was made public that the pier was going to be closed several smurfs secretly farmed keys for distribution across OCD networks. We made good use of the pier to protect the east end of the Channel for many months. Eventually some local Enlightened managed to get a boat in range and jarvissed the lighthouse turning it a disgusting shade of green!…
