Challenge #001, very easy, 1 layer (ROT13)

Every once in a while I'll update the site with small challenges. Their difficulty can range from very easy to very hard and they can contain media or other information that has to be decoded. If you have successfully decoded a challenge, you'll discover a passphrase that you have to sent to me. Along with your agent name and faction, sent the passphrase to @PiPrime on Telegram. Who knows, maybe they'll be some passcodes waiting...? PASSPHRASE: "Cogito, ergo sum."

We meet again! I thought you'd have lost interest in me. Let me introduce you to "The Game". To quote Wikipedia: "The Game is a mental game where the objective is to avoid thinking about The Game itself. Thinking about The Game constitutes a loss, which must be announced each time it occurs. It is impossible to win most versions of The Game. Depending on the variation of The Game, the whole world, or all those aware of the game, are playing it all the time. Tactics have been developed to increase the number of people aware of The Game and thereby increase the number of losses."

...

Well.

Look who just lost.

Challenge #007, very easy, 1 layer (Atbash)

The blogger and whistleblower known as P. A. Chapeau has been spotted on the MAG show floor. A thorn in the NIA?s side, he has apparently gained access to large number of their most classified secrets, and is threatening to reveal them. It is possible that he will come to the Niantic booth looking for more details for his Investigation as a Truthseeker. What is his agenda? What secrets has he uncovered? Will he share what he knows about the NIANTIC Project? If you're lucky, he just might... PASSPHRASE: PAC Prime

Anne,

Please come back. Look, I know it wasn't the same for you as for me. but it's not like you said. It's not a "cult". I'm not brainwashed. I'm me. But I feel something very real at the Portals and people here get that. They understand. I think in time you can feel it too. Some people are just more tuned in at the beginning. The Acolyte calls them "sensitives", like me, but she says that everyone has the capacity to feel XM. It just takes time. PASSPHRASE: The Enlightened Compound
