I'm just passing it along in case others did not get the message in game. I'm sure there will be more to come.

I suck at stuff like this but there are letters in between the numbers - by line:

AFFD

AE

EFFFFFF

DFDAD

DAFFAFF

 

NO idea if the letters or numbers are important.

The letters are numbers as well, it's in Hexadecimal.

I agree it's hexadecimal. The numbers for letters appear to be shifted 1 to the right. I'm on my phone, so can't get serious. Here's what you get from the numbers above.

That qt.dpn/ part looks like ps.com/ , but my phone only shows those other weird characters as ? marks.

Can you tell that the top line ends in a 9 and not a 5?

Also

When going to the second link (the spoiler), there are hidden boxes just above and to the left of the message graphic.   Screenshot enclosed.   Clicking each of the boxes gives you more messages to read

1033967746_Moarpages.thumb.JPG.0064326d6e1f716e58d1fb32bc49d9f9.JPG

Each message also has different hex values.    Since the URL for the spoiler is "the-end-is-the-beginning", I'm playing with the hex values, both backwards and forwards.

Huh. Weird. 

We gave out more than that in past ARGs. Kind of a bummer, really.

Unless...

Are you on a phone?  I see nothing of the sort in PC Firefox.

AHA!  Found them.

Yep... he's laughing, and I hopped over to scenarios to see if winning would reveal something else.

The BBs drove into the portal and stayed in the filth until exploding.  Nice, gents... can't you see I'm on a mission to help solve a puzzle?

EDIT:  Finished the mission with four stars.   Finished the personal assignment and got one of each flag.    Wondering what the "unless..." means.   Double-checked personal assignments - nothing new popped up.  Nothing in email.   Will check again later to see if anything else came in.

Not sure it's hex. It's gibberish converted to ASCII.

Maybe Unicode?

It's hex. The letters that result are shifted up one. See my post above.

I wonder if the aliens are differently endian?
