Welcome, new readers! Compiled here is all the information you need to catch up on the action happening here at Espercorp!
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.
Hello to all of you visiting Espercorp.com for the first time! I am Dr. Rhine, Founder and Head Scientist here at Espercorp. I am so excited to finally be able to share my wondrous discovery with the world! Through this log we will keep you up to date on our company progress.
But first, a quick explanation of exactly what Espercorp is and what we’re trying to accomplish here. I first discovered the Thymosphere while working as a Physicist at Stanford University. Doctors James Alister and Mark Nielson (now Scientists here at Espercorp) were my research assistants at the time, and they’ve worked with me ever since, even when the University cut my funding. Over the last five years we’ve worked tirelessly to develop a stable method of detecting and scanning the Spirit World. Now that we’ve got a working model of the ANCHOR system up and running our CFO Robert says it’s time to go public with our discovery:
“Spirits” are real. They aren’t what we thought they were—they’re not ghosts and they’re not supernatural. They’re beings of energy, and it’s only because they aren’t made up of physical matter that we cannot see them. But we can feel them.
They’re all around us. I would go so far as to posit that every time you’ve felt the hair stick up on the back of your neck, every time you’ve been happy or sad or scared for no reason, every time something happened that you couldn’t explain, an Esper was involved. And now, finally, we can communicate with them!
At the risk of sounding self-important, I believe this will be the defining discovery of the next century. What we have discovered is a window into the mind of life itself. It is my belief that through understanding the Thymosphere and its relationship with the Terrestrial World, we will make a brighter, happier tomorrow.
Hey everybody! I’m Rusty, the new intern here at EsperCorp. It looks like I’m going to be maintaining the log and generally helping out with whatever it is that goes on around here. I’m super-excited about it all, but no one’s really had time to explain any of it to me. Mr. McDouglas basically gave me some login info and told me to start writing. So anyways, here I go.
I had to take two planes and a ferry to get here, and I’m not allowed to say where “here” is, except that it’s on an island and it’s not snowing. EsperCorp is a big building complex that looks like it takes up most of the island. I was really surprised to learn that only about ten people work here. I guess a lot of it is taken up by machinery and habitats for the Espers.
I haven’t gotten to see any Espers yet, but Dr. Nielson says I will soon. Then he kind of chuckled to himself so I’m not sure what to think.
I’m really excited to meet Dr. Rhine. I’ve heard so much about him in my physics classes. He was a huge deal in the field until sometime in the nineties, when there was a mysterious accident in his particle accelerator lab. They say after that he went a little crazy and wouldn’t work on his old projects anymore.
Anyways, here comes Dr. Nielson. Maybe he’s going to give me the grand tour!

Hey everyone, I’d like to present to you the latest breakthough in Esper Detection Technology! Finally, after a full year of tests, we have developed the very first Esper Screen! Introducing the REDI-L2! (Relativistic Esper Detection Interface, large model mark 2) Colloquially called the Spectroscope!
This baby is a two-inch thick pane of reinforced crystal alloy composed of a secret combination of pulverized crystals and fancy chemistry. We can’t tell you the actual composition, but needless to say, it will be some time before we can affordably mass-produce these. But for now I’m very happy to show you what we can do with it!

The animals and plants on our Earth have been subjected to extensive study, classification, and observation over the centuries, but Esper studies are a new field. As EsperCorp’s Esper behaviorist, I’ve made a few notes on Espers and their interactions that I think agents might find helpful.
Espers are generated by human thoughts, so it’s not surprising that they often resemble real world animals. Glaucus does look strikingly like an owl! What’s more interesting, Glaucus act like owls in certain ways – when placed in proximity, Glaucus attack Cottle and Racha but will stay away from other Espers like Thrakos or Aurochs. It seems like owl-like Espers still retain their love of hunting small bugs and rodents. Espers don’t eat their prey in the same way that Earth animals do, of course, since Espers don’t have physical forms. But they defeat them and consume some of their essence for strength.
Hey everybody. Rusty here. Sorry this post is up late, I just got back from my“Grand Tour” of the island that Espercorp is set up on. When Dr. Nielson handed me a backpack full of supplies I thought he was joking, but he apparently “doesn’t joke about tours.” Anyway, we hiked all over the island, for like two days!
First, Dr. Mark showed me the giant cavern complex in the central mountain where Rhine harvested his first flawed quartz. It’s on display in the EsperCorp museum which, admittedly, is a room with a bookshelf at this point, but man, just to think about how much that one tiny rock has changed the world. I couldn’t get enough of it! Sorry, where was I? The island!
I’ve never been much of a spelunker, which is to say I’ve never been spelunking, ever. But the cave was amazing! It just kept going and going down into near darkness. I say near because there were all sorts of phosphorescent crystals that gave the entire cavern this eerie glow. Dr. Mark showed me all the strange Espers he was detecting down there on his ANCHOR’s radar. Plus, EsperCorp has these remote control robots wandering around the cave mining for crystals. They kept beeping and running into my legs and generally scaring the living daylights out of me.
Agents, I confess I’ve spent less time researching new Espers lately. It’s not that I’ve grown tired of the research, it’s simply that something new that is capturing my attention tenfold. The research I am conducting now is exhancing my understanding of not only all Espers, but of Life, the Universe and Everything.
As you know, the irreplaceable Mr. McDouglas recently perfected the Esper Screen (now officially dubbed the Spectrescope), which allows us to essentially view the Thymosphere! But Agents, have you considered what our spectrescope might show if we turned its gaze not on outward on the Spirits but inwardly, towards ourselves?
Matter of the Spirit World is created by output from the Terrestrial World, and the most prolific Spirit-matter-makers are us, human beings. Humans have more enormous, advanced brains than any species that has ever existed in the history of our planet, and we are constantly thinking. And every time we think, those thoughts are added to the Thymosphere.
