Welcome back Citizen Scientists! It seems like there is some science that needs doing, so let’s get to it!
The 10th Glyph has been activated on Waking Titan.
The titles of the photos, when strung together and skipping the 00 (empty) ones, were hexidecimal for “moirrr”, which is an anagram for mirror. Additionally, the hexidecimals in the correct order for the word mirror can be found on the bottom of the Myriad website: "6d 69 72 72 6f 72 ".
The image in the background shows a letter from an unknown “Gail Benedict”.
I’ll save you a few clicks: a whois look-up for “Gail” “Gail Benedict” or “Benedict” yields no results found.
The letter reads:
We have finished processing 10,000 passes as per your requirements. You should
have them in time for the next phase. I really hope you will like the final product.
Our task is to discover the password for the 10th Glyph.
In the past, the answer has always been hinted at with the background image. As this image mentions the arrival of the long awaited Level 4 Atlas Passes, it is reasonable to think that the answer might come with the passes themselves.
What have you fine citizens tried so far?
Let’s crack this thing!!

10: REM SLEEP

Wow, did I ever pick the wrong weekend to travel…
Looks like you guys got this all wrapped up- well done CSD!!
The 10th Glyph password is: REM SLEEP
In brief, here is how it went down:
The STATUS command on Waking Titan website changed over time to reveal a telephone number “1-800-413-0110” followed by “XXXXX XXX”
Calling 1-800-413-0110 played an audio recording which turned out to be a Slow Scan TeleVision (SSTV) signal. When the signal was decoded, it revealed two images: Precipitation tables for a seemingly random list of locations.
Sorting the locations in alphabetical order revealed the next hint: in this order, the last letter of each location spelled out: INDEX BY PRECIPITATION
The next step was to use the precipitation value as an index for which letter of the location name to grab: IE “2mm” = grab the second letter of the location. The letters for each location all together spells out the next clue:
CAFE BENE NINETEEN SAT?
There was a live drop in New York City at ‘Caffe Bene’ during phase 1. However, this coffee house no longer exists at that location and now is a cafe called Outro instead. This change in cafe name was hinted at on the Waking Titan website for the console command STATUS after the phone number (the string of X’s):
XXXXX XXX = OUTRO NYC
This meant another live drop was about to happen at 19:00 (ET/local), at the OUTRO NYC.
Agent Chris was en-route to the drop, but unfortunately got involved in a traffic accident (nobody was hurt). This delay caused an extension from Waking Titan to make the drop, so other agents were sent out to the live drop location. Agent Courage was the first to arrive and streamed the event on Twitch (Courage99).
Three agents (Courage, Sebatio and his son Axel) received a secret memo.
The next clue was written on the back of the secret memo by hand in black marker: “REMS”.
In the memo, there was one line of text that was written in red and underlined: "get plenty of sleep, while you still can"
Combining these clues from the memo led us to the password for the 10th glyph: REM SLEEP
(so much for brief…)
