Agent Santos is a Field Agent for Espercorp. He helps Rusty to manage the Blog and the Forum and answers all the Support Email. Occasionally Dr. Liu lets him go on a Field Mission, which he enjoys immensely.
As many are aware, many Agents who explored the Thymosphere were witness to a phenomena we at Espercorp had not ever witnessed before. “Santa Claus” appeared within the Thymosphere and gave any Agent willing to engage them a ‘gift’, presumably in celebration of the Holiday. Was this phenomena an ‘Esper’? Or something new?
Needless to say, it’s an alarming occurrence that requires explanation. Since Christmas I’ve had to fend off countless emails from inquiring Agents demanding just that. Well, I’m working on it. My whole winter break got taken up researching the subject. Not that I’m complaining, mind you, but I was hoping to have some time off and instead I had a business trip to the North Pole. Anyways, it’s taken me some time to compile my notes on the subject, and compare my research with the Chief Spectrologists at Espercorp. But here it is, finally.
The best way to start this is to begin with a story. It was 12:03 am, the very beginning of Christmas Eve. The stockings were hung above the Espercorp Furnace with care, and we had decorated a Treant and let him loose in the main lounge. I was answering support email when I suddenly got a company-wide instant message from Scotty:
‘everyone to the hub NOW.’
Scotty doesn’t usually take the time to add periods to his sentences so I knew that this was important. By the time I got there everyone was already crowded around the Esper screen, looking at something big and red. “What is it?” I asked.
“It’s Santa!” Rusty exclaimed with joy. I laughed initially, but after a closer look, the resemblance was unmistakable, even through the blurry resolution of the Esper Screen:
Well Agents, it’s finally out. Version 0.6 took twice as long to create than I expected, and hooking it up to live data almost as long. But it’s here now, and I’ve taken over the Blog today to tell all you Agents what it’s got and how to use it. So here goes:
Global Chat System
First of all, we now have a Global Chat system within Geomon. The Forums are great, and we are loving our new Moderators, but not very convenient when you’re out exploring away from your computer, or if just want to keep your eyes peeled on the Radar. So now adjacent to the Friends List on the Radar Screen is a button that will lead you to the Espercorp Global Chat.
There are four Chat Channels. There’s a Global channel for everyone, a Support channel for anyone who needs help, a Field Agent channel (which one depends on your own Rank), and a Trade channel (self-explanatory). You can “subscribe” or “unsubscribe” to each of these rooms by tapping on their icon. While subscribed to a channel you will receive all messages sent to it, so long as you are in Chat.
So far studies are inconclusive as to whether Espers experience “gravity” the way we do, but one thing is clear: Malila is one of the sturdiest Espers we have ever encountered in the field. If one doesn’t want to move, there’s not much in the thymosphere that can dislodge it. Malila caught in a storm reportedly dig in their legs, sit there and wait for the water and wind passing above them to subside.
Energy: 75 eV
Malila is a tortoise Esper that carries a plant habitat on its back. The composition of its skin and shell ranges in texture from solid stone to petrified wood. The greenery on its shell can be grown or retracted at will, and the types of plants that grow change according to the Malila’s mood. A happy Malila might grow a meadow of flowers, while one that feels threatened would present a briar patch of thorns.
Agent Jessabella submitted a story that sparked a heated debate among senior staff. The situation was thus:
One evening, Agent Jessabella discovered a Racha on her radar, leading her to cry out in disgust. “Ewwww, a roach!”
Her trusty boyfriend, always alert and ready to defend his paramour from all kinds of insectoid assault, jumped on the case, only to be informed that the cockroach was actually within the spirit world and thus imperceptible to human senses.
Jessabella: “He laughed and told me he didn’t think I had anything to worry about. He doubted it was that sensitive.”
Agent Henry Jones and I have been attempting to track the generation-points of the dragon Esper Thrakos for the past month, triangulating possible locations based on their sightings and very rare capture. They apparently travel extreme distances, and as of yet we cannot be sure where on Earth they originate from. Our objective is to locate and scan one or more low-power Thrakos. Currently, the only known Thrakos are levels 40 and above. Our hypothesis is that “younger” dragons exist but do not venture far from their homes. Yesterday, we searched the second of possible locations, an active volcano in the Philippine Seas known as Pagan. Continue reading →
Geomon is a free-to-download app for the ipod and iphone that allows anyone to detect and communicate with a parallel world!
There is an invisible layer of thought and imagination that exists all around us. All the legends and stories and ideas ever conceived over the history of mankind are manifested as energy in the Spirit World, know as the Thymosphere. Within the Thymos, ideas truly have power. Ideas that are strong enough combine to become Spirits called Espers.
Now, for the first time in History, mankind has established a secure, machinated connection between the physical plane and the world of dreams and imagination! Using the wonder of modern technology, Field Agents all around the world can scan and explore the Spirit World, right from their phone!
Since its discovery, the Thymosphere has become more increasingly imbalanced and chaotic. Espercorp has encountered many challenges while investigating the uncharted realm of the mind. There are high concentrations of negative Energy building deep underground, and the behavior of the Spirits is changing daily. Now more than ever, Espercorp needs the help of people like you to help restore balance to the Earth.
What follows is a bit of what Espercorp has experienced so far.
