As far as the postcard goes, I’m afraid there doesn’t seem to be much to it beyond what you can see in the picture I already posted. I haven’t really been paying attention to any of the Descent of the Durtle stuff, though, so maybe you can find something I’m missing?

Here’s the back:

And here’s the card held up to a bright light (much to the confusion of our dog, who watched me standing on a chair to take these):


I even tried heating it with a hair dryer :sweat_smile:, but alas, no hidden message appeared. That unfortunately exhausts all of my training in detecting invisible ink.

I’m ridiculously busy this week, but if you can think of something else you’d like me to try that’s (1) quick and easy (i.e. doesn’t require any special equipment or travel) and (2) won’t result in me burning my house down, I’m happy to do so.

@koichi, did you orchestrate the creation of Cowboy Bebop as a jiddle? You would. I knew I should have payed better attention the, uh, one…yes, one time I watched every Cowboy Bebop episode in one sitting.

Hm, interesting. Timer? Does anybody know what the exact episode and time is that Koichi showed up? Maybe if we convert it to hex, we‘ll find a url or something.

Edit: Season 6, episode 10, about 10 seconds in.

Did anyone else notice that @koichi signed it as Koichi when Koichi is supposed to be dead and hasn’t posted since his barbecuing. He’s supposed to be @koichi-descended now.

So either he slipped up, the real Koichi is still out there and Koichi-descended is an imposter, or it’s not a clue.

Its a bit sad you got this scary as hell card as your prize. Burn it.

(i am kidding burning the card might result in burning your house down)

Might also be a step to the next clue!

(i am kidding of course, adding this in case lol)
