About a month ago a user named "TheGreatHolocron" posted a thread title "The Great Holocron" over on the BioWare forums. Within the message was hidden the message "this is not a game".
Then about a week ago another message in the thread linking to four sites:
But things really got interesting yesterday. First the following wanted poster was posted:
The poster contains text in Aurebesh, Star Wars' alphabet, which users quickly translated to the following:
But even more interesting is that users started receiving the following transmission. Unfortunately I'm having some trouble getting it through my secure network (must be some browser settings), but luckily it has also been placed on a public network:
The Great Holocron
The experience begins
august 24th, 2009
It looks like someone, apparently a Jedi named Jole Somaac, in some kind of forest. From the transmission he's trying to send he seems to be in possession of this great holocron. Whatever that is.
More discussion on these events and what it all means, people trying to puzzle out the clues, is being done on the The Great Holocron forums. And it seems that factions are already being formed. The question that remains is: who will get their hands on this holocron first? The Republic or the Empire?
Looking quite interesting indeed.
[UPDATE] It seems that the project was canceled; no activity for month and the site down. So I've changed the labels for this post. Pity; could've beens something special.
