  1. Eheh, that rimes. Sort of. Anyway, it is Wednesday again and time for the fourth Order of the Forgotten Mysteries post! This time we will head to a more recent, but equally intriguing oddity: Belinski square: A very prominent plaza in the centre of Stalingrad, in Gorod Krovi. It is the square with the infamous Barmaley Fountain: A statue depicting a circle of six children dancing around a crocodile. Originally meant as an artistic decoration of the city, it became a symbol associated with the blind and meaningless horror and destruction that had been terrorized Stalingrad for half a year: War. I have consulted a Russian online forum, asking how the plaza in real life was called, and it appeared that it was originally simply known as the 'Trainstation Square'. So what caused this change of name in our Zombies Universe, or at least in the Agonia fracture? Belinski is obviously the last name of our well-beloved, chronic drunk, Soviet character: Niki! It seems, however, that Nikolai was merely an infantry soldier of the Red Army, rather than some famous person deserving a square being called after him. What is more, Nikolai's wife died on the 24th of June, 1941, two days after the start of the Nazi's Operation Barbarossa: the offense on the Soviet Union. From this it seems like Nikolai lived in the very west of his country, close to Poland or maybe in the Baltic area. Additional proof for this is that, according to my helpful online Slavic comrades, any name ending with ‘-ski’ originates from the Western/Baltic/Leningrad area (however, since Stalin’s population transfer in the 1930s this doesn’t mean anything anymore). So it seems unlikely that Nikolai was some local Stalingrad celebrity or something, as he most likely didn’t originate from there. But the place being called after one Belinski would be too coincidental if it wouldn't have any ties with him. Does Nikolai have relatives? Well, you might not know, but in fact is the answer yes: He had a brother. In one of the many knocht facts of Monty in Revelations, the following is stated: The CoD Wiki says that in a Black Ops 1 map, Nikolai states that he has a homeless brother which he hates, but I cannot find any proof for that. Also, the Timeline mentions his brother too: So there seem to be quite some nods to the existence of another Belinski. But who could this be? Der Eisendrache and Zetsubou no Shima provide us some interesting ciphers: So next to Pablo Marinus, there are four other test subjects: Takeo, Dempsey, Nikolai, and a fourth unknown one. It is said, however, that one of them is a brother of the one at large in the city (who we assume is Nikolai in Gorod Krovi). So Nikolai’s brother is a testsubject of Group 935 too? What is interesting as well, is that these are facts scattered throughout all fractures: Agonia, Proditione and Deceptio, which most likely means it is something that was in the Original Universe as well, and not merely a random fracture thing. Nikolai’s brother is also confirmed to be dead. Compared with his addiction to booze, this might be why Nikalai sort-of forgot about him. But who could this be? And could he be the one who the plaza was named after? Leave your thoughts! This is my own theory, a far one, I know, but I’m gonna leave it here as well. Next to Nikolai there is only one Russian we are familiar with: Viktor Reznov. There have been some nods to him in Zombie Mode as well: The Pack-a-Punched AK-47 in Mob of the Dead is named Reznov’s Revenge. Not uninteresting is that Nikolai’s name is heard in Weasels head and that the eye colour of the undead in Mob are, just like in Stalingrad, coloured blood-red. A gravestone on Belinski Square and a sign stating: “Vengeance is mine” - V.R. A trophy in Gorod Krovi, called ‘Viktorious Revenge’ A cipher: All these nods seem to hint to the fact Reznov is, in opposition to Mason’s mind games, already dead (or at least in Agonia), died in Stalingrad. Now you see where I am heading to: Could Reznov be Nikolai’s deceased brother? As he stole blueprints of German technological advancements (possibly during his time as captured testsubject), he might have earned fame among the Soviets and a square named after him. However, Reznov did so during the war, and it would be logical that the plaza was named ‘Belinski Square’ before the war. Anyway, more mysteries surrounding Reznov have been discussed in the comments of this post. Did he die or did he live? The very first time we came in touch with Reznov was at the Trainstation Square, or Belinksi Square... Also notice the crow (thanks to @PINNAZ)
  2. Lets all just take a moment to realize how much joy (at least for me) our kind-hearted friendo Lenne has caused. I'm glad you're with us, buddy, couldn't wish a better Lenne. Except maybe one that doesn't feed on human spleens
  3. That device seems to emit some sort of radiation. Reminds me of Kino's 'Aether Projectionist'. See the two 'broadcasting towers' in the back? Think of the American HAARP ("might be powering HAARP), the Soviet DUGA. There are theories these machines manipulated the Aether and so were able to mind-control the people on Earth. Since Broken Arrow has created their own MPD, maybe they need their own Global Polarization Devices as well? "A little learning is a dangerous thing" expresses the idea that a small amount of knowledge can mislead people into thinking that they are more expert than they really are, which can lead to mistakes being made. The quote originates by a Pope in the 17th and 18th Century:
  4. @Lenne I think there is a possibility that JimmyZ planned Moon to be on 21/12/2012: the Day that the Earth would end. See this for example: Also, BO2 and its DLC's were releasesed in 2011 and 2012, so the game taking place in it's own time would be a neat idea. Die Rise features SDC zombies, though no one knows when the SDC was formed. For all we know, this could be easily be before 2012. Anyway, it doesnt matter anymore. @Schrödinger that is interesting! For me, the one on the upside seems to be Calli (though that is odd since Calli is east and it is on the up/North side of the calendar) and Atl to the right (which fits since it means East). The rest is hard to see. Like you might know, there are daysigns on the Moon loading screen as well. Have you, by chance, any idea what their role in the calendar is? How they work? See under 'Sensational!' I tried image upscaling but all I can read is 'Aztec and Mayan calendar' and 'for magical purposes'. Also, why is it standing next to an image of the MPD frontcircle. Another Vril nod.
  5. Thank you for the clarification. I already wondered what the four location paintings are for, but so apparently it is concerning a Quest step as well. Unfortunately, the events of Moon happen years later, in 2027. I agree that 2012 would be more fitting. Also, weren't there Aztec symbols in Mob of the Dead as well? Or has the alcohol damaged my brain too bdly again? Anyway, @PINNAZ, you must know that something once posted by you reminded me of the subject which next Order of Forgotten Mysteries will discuss, coming wednesday. Stay tuned, comrade...
  6. You're right, the calendar appears very similar to an Aztec, espessially the Tonalpohualli you linked. The odd thing is that it includes Mayan symbols (see Rad's close-up/scoped screenshot) and also the number '56': a number important for the Maya but not the Aztec. So some kind of mix between Maya and Aztec perhaps? Maybe the Vril were the inspiration for the calendars of both societies, thus the calendar is called Vril map in the script. And what do you mean with the Aztec day signs you mentioned: are they observable in the CotD map as well or merely in the example link you mentioned (the Tonalpohualli). I find 'house', 'colour of sacrifice' and 'colour of heaven' sound remarkable. Austral instead of astral (good note!). Seems like we are talking about the southern hemisphere now. But why?
  7. Hmm, remember how the Main Quests in those older maps actually made sense? Like, what you did was logical and there was a sciencific explanation behind everything. So what the fuck goes on in that Siberian outpost? ''Sacrificing'' a human to green light being emited by a U-boat gives you the Vril rod? If the numbers on a Vril map stand for a frequency, I could see the connection between the lightbeam and the Vril rod. Some other applications of green light: The mystery box beam in Shi no Numa and Revelations (but probably due to gameplay only) The green lantern in Shadows of Evil The green portals around the skull cleaning ritual altars in Zetsubou no Shima, dispensing zombies (possibly gameplay as well) The green light in Tranzit that makes the Denizens dig a hole through space and time I also wonder how Richthofen knew about the pressence of the Vril rod in the facility, since it was not really present, like, it wasn't just laying there on a table. Instead, it seems to be rather beamed out of an electromagnetic pulse.
  8. What rounds did you reach doing this challenge? Wonder how difficult it is
  9. ...and Sally, a woman living in 2011, is also trapped in this timeloop and send back in time. Shit, why does every mystery end up with something Shangri La related? Why is it such a weird map? It must have something to do with the Eclipse...
  10. @RadZakpak certainly interesting! They refer to Nikolai as the Russian, which he is. They refer to the Siberian Outpost to the Coast, which it is. If they refer to this Mayan calendar as 'the Vril map', is that what this is? As discussed in the first Order of Forgotten Mysteries, ancient Mesoamerican civilasations seem to have a lot of connections with the Vril Ya, and it could even be possible that Shangri La is located in Latin America instead of the Himalayas (despite having the gongs and the Naga statues). It is also believed by the Mayas that their calendar system was given to them by their 'Gods', so a Vrillian system maybe? Also, @RichKiller has posted a thread on the Subreddit here. Though the Mayan part is possibly debunked (I'm not fully convinced yet, though, if it truly reads 'Mazers'. And Mazers indeed didn't crafted with diamant), it is nonetheless an interesting read. Anyone take a look if you feel like! And as a last add, has anyone done the Call of the Dead easter egg quest? What is that part with the Vril map ciphers. Where do the characters use it for? If it is a security code of some sort, this might be why Pablo a.k.a D. Jano had temporary been escaped and wrote this code and all the other sentences down, only to be captured again moments later. Siberia provides its own ecological prison.
  11. Listening to Coldplay a guilty pleasure? I should add that one to my list as well then. I love speeding as well but I am too afraid for flashers. I should really instal Flitzmeister... Another one I should add to my list: I love Hardstyle/Hardcore. Y'know, the 150+ bass per minute Electronic Dance Music. The genre skinheads and XTC is associated with (but never done it and never planning to do so). I am more of the more euphoric side, though. Love tracks like this and this. Also, how fitting name you got then @ZombiesAteMyPizza!. Guess you're a real fan and you made my hungry to one now. My personal favourites are those including seafood and fungi, but I am fund on them all (even those including Pineapple)
  12. Allright so back to the Matter Transference Device. In the past, I've many times mentioned this post by Faust explaining the principles of teleportation both mathematically and physically. This is the reason why MTD's should theoretically unable to enable backward timetravel: "Let's say that your graph is you atom as they pass through a teleporter. You want to make a copy of yourself, in other words, you squared... See where I'm going with this. Now, your atoms as they pass though will gradually loose mass before hitting that absolute zero. Now, there is no absolute zero mass in our reality. Instead, you will poke a tiny hole in space time as it warps around you to form a zero point where you no long exist. Think equationary explosive decompression. Black holes. You will be sent to an absolute negative space where the rules of physics don't apply. This is aether. Nothing exists but yourself and the other beings trapped there. Because when you were sent in energised, the universe will still want that energy you left with and will attempt to pull you back through into our world instantly. You would not even be in aether a second, as you are pulled though so fast and time would have no meaning at that zero point without space-time anyway! Additionally, as space and time are both woven into eachother, you could be thrown out of time aswell. The only way you could escape is if some time in the future someone would poke an exit hole in time." So basically, the timetravelling subject/object has entered the timeless aether and waits till a door (the Mainframe) somewhere is opened to escape. However, I could not see why this could not be opened in the past, prior to the teleportation. But once again, the Der Eisendrache teleportation is odd, the black fog and Groph not being able to see us. Its almost like Primis find theirselves in another realm, able to observe the 3th dimension but unseen by beings residing in it.
