Have you ever ever heard of the GPS sport?

Earlier than you kind it into Google, let me prevent the difficulty – you are not going to seek out a lot. If it isn’t on the Web, I have to be stuffed with bullshit, proper? You’ll be able to imagine no matter you need. The very fact is that only a few individuals find out about this city legend, and even fewer have tried to play, and even fewer have adopted it to the tip. You could have guessed it, however I’m a kind of individuals.

I am going to spare you the small print of how I found the sport. It is a lengthy, principally uninteresting story that I am going to save for an additional time. What I am right here to inform you is all I realized whereas taking part in; all the things that you must know to remain secure, if you happen to select to play it your self. I am going to get to why I am revealing this later; for now, let’s discuss concerning the gameplay.

The sport entails typing a seemingly random sequence of characters into the search bar of any GPS system or utility and following the trail generated – that is known as the ‘grasp code’. Sadly, it’s continuously altering, by no means staying the identical for various days at a time. It has one thing to do with the Earth’s rotation, in addition to its place in orbit across the solar. Many complicated measurements are required to find out the worth chain of the code at any given time. That is why you solely have two choices out there to you.

-Contact a “spotter” (accessible through particular darkish internet markets). They will entry the mandatory measurements and generate a listing of attainable code variations, however it’ll price you an arm and a leg.

-Contact me. I am no observer, however I’ve performed the sport sufficient to know what I am doing. I’ve found out the code over and over with none assist, and I will not cost you a dime.

After you’ve got picked up the code and formally began your expedition, it is necessary to keep it up for the lengthy haul. Regardless of what number of turns you’re taking, nothing out of the bizarre will occur throughout the journey itself. That is why plenty of newbies get bored and stop midway by means of, fed up with aimlessly driving on random roads. As legend has it, it is concerning the vacation spot, not the journey. The GPS sport is meant to guide you to the key metropolis of Battered Grove. Therein lies the rationale for all of it – exploration in uncharted territory; the invention of a non-existent place.

Though the route is consistently altering, the journey time typically stays the identical. It ought to take you between 5 and 6 hours to finish the journey, relying on visitors. Preserve a watch out for these landmarks, to be completely certain you’ve got arrived:

–Hank’s Supernova Diner, a restaurant that boldly proclaims it is open 25 hours a day

–HexWorks, a store specializing in classic curiosities

–Grovewood & Co., a present store (for some cause I could not discover this constructing on my final go to)

–Garrett’s Locker, a dying metallic venue

–The Grovewood Inn, a resort with a haunted previous (or so I have been informed)

As thrilling as it will likely be to discover this new place, you should not get carried away. Forces past your comprehension are at work, supplying you with a glimpse right into a world you had been by no means meant to see. One flawed transfer might shatter this cosmic window, upsetting the fragile stability between the worlds, successfully catapulting you into an unfathomable void of non-existence from which you’ll by no means return. This will sound dramatic, however it actually is so severe.

I urge you to comply with the next tricks to keep away from irreparable harm to your self, or to actuality as we all know it:

-DO NOT get out of your automobile on the town. Your presence will disturb the inhabitants, whose closest ones will strategy you and forcefully break your brains out. When pursuing an outsider such as you, a Resident possesses supernatural reservoirs of power, agility, and stamina. After making certain that your coronary heart has stopped, the resident will resume their every day routine as if nothing had occurred.

-DO NOT movie or take pictures of town. Do not even take a selfie within the automobile. When you’ve got a dashcam, do away with it. There may be no document of your go to, no matter it was. In case you do not, one thing will occur to you. Not immediately – it might take a number of days or perhaps a week after you get residence, however relaxation assured it’ll occur. A GPS participant I knew as Tom made the error of taking a brief telephone video of his journey round city, for his private data. I can solely guess that somebody or one thing eliminated it and recovered the footage. We often contact one another at the least as soon as each few months to debate our findings. We have not spoken to one another for greater than two years now.

– Talking of telephones, let’s speak about electronics. Most of us depend on them in our every day commutes, however that is the one place you completely cannot. Do not belief any of your devices. For instance, if the GPS continues to be working when you attain town, it’ll spin you round, ultimately main you into the unsavory depths of town the place you’ll inevitably run out of gasoline. After that, it is sport over.

– In case you name somebody in Battered Grove, there is a 100% probability they’re going to reply, besides it will not be him. Their voice and diction might be equivalent to their real-life counterpart, however make no mistake about it. It is a metropolis factor, combating so that you can keep so he can eat you alive. In case you keep on the road, the individual on the opposite finish will turn out to be hysterical. What they are saying is completely different for everybody, however their phrases might be profound and they’re going to by some means persuade you to get out of your automobile. Everyone knows what occurs after that.

-The town learns. Each time you go to, he’ll throw a brand new curveball at you, hoping you will get out of your car for some cause. I assumed I had seen all of it, however on my final playthrough, I bought an Amber Alert on my telephone. The plate quantity matched the truck in entrance of me and I might clearly see a younger lady within the again seat, clawing on the window. She appeared instantly at me, tears streaming down her face, begging me to avoid wasting her. I adopted the truck for a very good ten kilometers earlier than coming to my senses and getting out of the dodge. It is best to unfold out your visits with lengthy durations of relaxation in between; the extra typically you go to, the more durable it’s to get out. The town hates common guests.

– Oh sure, the e book. It would not occur on a regular basis, however when it does, watch out. A e book titled Sleep Ways: Workouts for a Restful Thoughts will seem in your automobile throughout sure journeys. It may possibly present up in your glove field, on the ground close to the gasoline pedal, and even caught within the crevice between the hood and the windshield. More often than not, it simply spawns within the passenger seat. Regardless of the place he’s, you’ll be able to’t give in to distraction. You can be surprisingly tempted to cease the automobile and open the e book to see its contents. DO NOT READ THE BOOK. In case you do, you’ll be hopelessly absorbed and fall beneath its spell. As you devour the pages, you’ll turn out to be drained to the purpose of collapsing right into a darkish sleep. Relying on the place you left off within the e book, you will both keep asleep indefinitely or come out by yourself. Within the latter state of affairs, your astral type might be eternally adrift in Battered Grove, with no method to talk with the surface world or return to your bodily physique.

(Though this has solely occurred a handful of instances, if the e book occurs to be Transpersonal Journey: A Information to the Unknown Consciousness, TURN AROUND. You could depart instantly. Belief me.)

So why am I telling you all this? Properly, right here I’m. Immediately. Stranded in Battered Grove.

Tried to go away by regular means, however the city is getting artful. The roads that often lead residence have rearranged, all main me again to this cursed place. Do you keep in mind what I stated about spreading out your travels? Properly, I bought smug. I went from a number of visits a yr to 6 or seven, and ended up coming right here each month. It is an dependancy, an dependancy that I clearly haven’t got the self-discipline to deal with. I’ve formally hit all-time low, sitting right here in my automobile, fully out of gasoline, simply ready for the inevitable.

That is the place you are available in.

Under I’ll reveal the present grasp code. I do not know if it is nonetheless energetic, however it’s my solely hope. Please assist me please. Whilst I kind this on my telephone, I am at risk. The town is aware of I am caught and is doing all the things it may well to swallow me complete. Each jiffy I get calls from unknown numbers and I get pop-up adverts for native gasoline stations which might be “inside strolling distance of your present location!” I do know the masquerade properly, however I do know it is solely a matter of time earlier than town methods me into believing I can escape from the consolation of my car.

Given the unusual nature of town, I can not be certain this message will attain anybody, at the least not in the best way I intend. Wherever my story finally ends up hitting that ship button, I hope somebody tries the sport. Deliver pals, make it a highway journey, have enjoyable. If you find yourself discovering me, a lot the higher. Even if you happen to do not imagine a phrase of it, what have you ever bought to lose?

Take the code and depart. NOW. I do not need time anymore.
