  1. I really like the fact the language involves prime factors. Thank you once again for your work on these languages, well done.
  2. Don't follow others if you don't know where they lead you.
  3. Okay so seems like there is a video that even brings up the poster I gave above. It shows another connection to the props Harry used and the items in Nero's room. The video deserves much more videos tbh
  4. I was trying to look for any posters of Harry Blackstone, since Nero had many all over the map. I found this: This is very similar to the poster in-game, and also reminds a bit the poster in Kino Der Toten:
  5. Wow! Fantastic find! Notice that he is also from Chicago. Gonna read more carefully this wiki. One character that I couldn't find anything on is Billy Handsome. Even though all of them are bloody killers, there is no one particular killer that significantly stands out or any parallel. edit: It seems like the Nero connection has already been found, but it's still very cool.
  6. So I finally got around to making this post. First I want to point out that not everything discussed here is new (some stuff is actually quite old), but as far as I'm concerned the most of it is new. There are several interesting ties between events that happened IRL and the zombies lore, However, when searching "Mob of the dead" in real life, you find the famous escape story from Alcatraz. The point of this thread is to expose deeper connections to a different part in history. Since there are many connections, I'm surely going to miss a few, but you'll get the idea and the main connections. I want to start with where I started to discover these connections, Blood of the Dead ciphers. The ciphers have several references to a character named Torrio. Clearly Torrio seems is a rival mobster of Sal. I tried to search up if there is someone named Torrio, and there was. Johnny Torrio. He is a member of the Chicago outfit, which has been referred to in a Mob of the Dead cipher: This cipher lines up with some IRL events, but let's paddle back to Torrio. Torrio was the main partner of Al Capone, which is arguably the most famous Prisoner of Alcatraz. Now where is where stuff starts to get interesting: The nickname of Torrio is in fact "The Fox" and we all know that Al Arlington is named "The weasel". Also, "Al" being a reference to Al Capone is an old idea which has been brought up. Could there be more connections? The answer is yes, and we didn't even start. Let's have a look at another BoTD cipher from Salvatore "Sal" DeLuca: This matches up with Al Capone: "Capone was born in New York City in 1899 to Italian immigrant parents." "Capone showed promise as a student, but had trouble with the rules at his strict parochial Catholic school. His schooling ended at the age of 14, after he was expelled for hitting a female teacher in the face." Now recall the cipher that discussed the war between Sal's organization and the north side gangs. This was a real gangster war. The north side gang was an Irish American gang. It was founded by Dean O'Banion. And yes, this is easily similar to Finn O'Leary. The gangs used to illegally sell alcohol when the law didn't allow it. This act is knowng as bootlegging, a term which is frequently repeating in the related page in Wikipedia. The war between the gangs revolved around the areas where the gangs sell alcohol. Each side tried to sell drinks in the "other's area". This bootlegging wars have lead the south-siders to kill O'Banion. This has sparked an armed war between the gangs. A potential connection here is that one of his killers is named Albert Anselmi. The most known event in the Chicago gangs war is the Valentine's day massacre. Before we dive in the history of this event, let us notice that it is referred to in the zombies lore: Also potentially, the date in here refers to the event as well. It is not the same date, but it is very close to it: In this event 7 members of the north side gang were brutally murdered, in a public park during the day. The main suspects are members of the Egan's Rats gang which were sent by Al Capone. This event has lead citizens to demand that the government would take action, and newspapers referred to Al Capone as "Public Enemy No. 1". More potential connections: One of the gang memebers that were killed were "Albert Kachellek". Moreover, Al is referred by the others as a rat: Egan's rats made more headlines when a member named Leo Vincent Brothers (Brothers is a part of his name) killed a journalist named Jake Lingle. So basically... Vincent killed Jack. Furthermore, Jake Lingle was in fact a reporter. Just like this guy: Treyarch could have set anyone to take the role of Mr. Rapt's agent, and they chose a reporter. Funny. In regards to Valentine's day, I also want to point out that one of the only holiday related in-game events zombies had (and perhaps the only one) was in fact BO3 Valentine's day: We will end with probably my favorite connection. Barber shops have been brought up quite a few times: We also know that Al had a barber shop in SoE: Do any of the real life mobsters have something to do with barber shops? The answer is yes. April 16, 1957. Torrio enters a Barber shop, sits on the barber's chair, and dies from a heart attack. This is also a direct connection to the electric chairs in MoTD, as in each iteration of the loop the characters die on the chair, just like Torrio. I want to end the thread by saying that the vast majority of Wikipedia references in here were taken from the top of the relevant pages. Even though some linked pages here are short, they directly show in the top front of the main pages. It's not the first time we see Treyarch takes inspirations from wikipedia either. If you ask me, the story of the Chicago mobsters is the real life Mob of the dead. Thanks for reading! As I said I probably missed a few connections in this post so I encourage people to look further in the material and see if there connections themselves. I also did not discuss potential BoTD connections, so if you are aware of any, feel free to share them below.
  7. The quotes were definitely written by the zombies team. I have seen the specialist stories. I honestly do not see any implications of them to zombies. I have previously discussed how blackout is not canon to the Aether storyline (recall the diagram). Basically in my eyes only WaW and BO1 campaigns (and DoA) are canon to Aether. Otherwise there would be some serious mess... Overall I think it's better to separate between Aether zombies and other modes, at least from BO2 and beyond (except for DoA 2 in BO3).
  8. Great and funny quotes, thanks for making the document! I wouldn't go as far as considering this canon to the story though.
  9. The time bomb doesn't duplicate but there could possibly be more than one time bomb. I'd argue this is a time bomb activation: The time bomb is not exactly time travel. Some stuff does not change like opening doors etc. I'd say it's more of reversing events back to the point where the time bomb was planted. Some events affected by the aether don't change when activated.
  10. You'll have to excuse me for not reading the vast majority of this post to avoid spoilers. I'll say this: In my eyes, the only way to make sense of the "buried-moon" theory is to assume the so called "bubble". More specifically, Victis telaports back in time with the buried town itself to prehistoric times. If Maxis wins, the rift opens in the original dimension and the Apothicons take over (hence the orange atmosphere and the "booms" i.e meteors) to consume it sooner or later. If Richtofen wins, he mends the rift and the Apothicons do not take over the dimension (hence the massive earth shaking). Richtofen placed the bubble, which protects the dimension from the Apothicons. As for the NAVcard paradox: Richtofen controls Victis' mini-cycle- Richtofen can push Victis from Buried back to Tranzit. Victis always "wakes up" in Tranzit. The Buried cutscene is merely a far memory of the past, style MoTD intro, and cycle, the giant entering quotes, etc (it happened but not recently as the crew thinks). Richtofen always pushes back Victis from the bubble to Buried until a result happens- either Maxis or Richtofen wins. Also recall that the timeline is not reliable as it is an Apothicon book. The Apothicons intended that both Primis Richtofen and Dr. Monty read its pages and act accordingly. If it is too close to Ultimis' Richtofen's plan, it's not there. This is a war between entities, each thinks they know everything. Everyone try to outsmart the rest and make sure they see exactly what they need to see. This alone justifies the way the zombies storyline is displayed. In WaW-BO1 we see Ultimis' prespective. In BO2 we see Victis' prespective, In BO3-BO4 we see Primis' prespective. I think Richtofen's perspective started in BO4 but did not finish. If we knew Richtofen's full perspective on the story, I think it will complete the missing pieces. That's all we need.
  11. Revelations ciphers: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/2lox3ldu7ynz0cf/AADl0y3C0UBWxv_kLp3r4TJKa?dl=0 I will DM the 3 others.
  12. Alright so here are a few things I have noticed: - All SoE ciphers are need to be added - "After the success at the Rising Sun facility" cipher is from DE and needs a "DE cipher" title. - "I know at some point in the future" cipher from GK needs to be added - "From all of us at Treyarch" cipher is missing. This may be done deliberately, but perhaps this should be in unsorted. - "August 31st, 1945 - Vbush File" has text that can be translated through the terminal IIRC. As said you did great work, thanks for making and sharing the document.
  13. Great work! A few notes regards ciphers: 1. Is this document supposed to have all ciphers? Since there are few missing ciphers, from SoE for example. 2. All of the comic ciphers are solved: See here
