Originally, the Aranta-Shadur is a Nosferatu game in which elders ask neonates to go on a scavenger hunt. The goal was to steal one object belonging to a Kindred in town, bring it back to the warrens, and then return it to its owner. Unnoticed!
Here though, there won't be any object to steal. Once a week, I will hide a link to a picture, a name, an object or a place, in the hub. The purpose of the game is to find it, and post the hidden name in the SchreckNet chatbox.
If you're up for a challenge, you can navigate through the hub, roam the logs folders, look for hints, clues, leading to the secret answer.
You might be either not a skilled Nossy, or just new to what's called ARGs (Alternate Reality Game).
If you want to learn the basics about ARG's solving, there are good online sources teaching how to crack my poor coded Aranta.
One of the best, and easy to learn from, is Game Detective Academy, where you can learn about basic cyphers, computing, steganography, and much more.

Alright, if you're up for a challenge, you're in the right place.
We usually make some "treasure hunts"-ish kind of game for our new recruits to be,
but tonight I might use your help for something different.
See, it's been almost two years since I got embraced, and I never got the
opportunity to go back where I used to live, when I was mortal.
Don't get me wrong, I ain't feeling nostalgic, I love what I've become,
but I feel I could have some fun working over there.
I heard of some safe-conduct option I could obtain from my hometown's clanmates,
to go back there, but I don't think it will be that easy.
If you're willing to help me out, I'll owe you, and will allow you to join the Brood.
First things first, I guess you'll need to find where my journey began ...
Access code :
Okay, nice done kiddo.
Let's get to work.
I got a message from the local brood, and they asked me for a favor.
I need to send them something (no, you are not allowed to know what this something is)
to a secret location in town.
But those nossies seem as playful as I am (or maybe just as fucking damn cautious),
so they encrypted the location, and only sent me scraps.
We need to dig for informations, look for clues, names, places, or even pictures ... Anything.
Only then we could cross datas, find a patern or whatever.
