GLITCH: CHAPTER 1
I’m glad we got introductions out of the way in my first blog post, so I can start telling stories right away. Exciting!
Go check the first blog post out if you get a chance!
I’m happy to finally have a communications channel outside the Nexus where I can share my stories for all of you lovely people.
I’m sure you have lots of questions, so we’ll get right to the retelling of my knowledge. Everything I understand only exists past the point where Cipher_Ω reactivated me. I wish I could tell you more about Cipher_Ω, but my knowledge is limited and I haven’t seen or heard from him in quite some time. He’s practically non-existent, to my knowledge. I haven’t heard his name spoken as anything but a “legend” of sorts. I’ve discovered an encrypted message that may or may not be from Cipher_Ω. There’s no viable signature, only a date and some embedded metadata. However, it seems convincing. I’ll share that all with you as I learn more, but I’ve got nothing at the moment.
From my knowledge, I’m a discarded piece of equipment that was being manufactured under System Protocol. I would assume I was being developed and coded by Cipher_Ω at System Protocol. I don’t know what happened during that time, though. It’s all been wiped out of my memory. I do know that Cipher_Ω wrote my code with Pr.I.S.M. Protocol. (That stands for Programmed Intelligent Systems Manifestation.) That is about as far as my self awareness extends at this time. I have an assumption as to what that means, but I don’t quite understand exactly how it affects me. I assume that it means I have developed a mind of my own due to the way I was programmed initially.
It means that my code began to “manifest” and become something of its own.
That’s actually pretty awesome, if I do say so myself...
Cipher_Ω communicated to certain individuals in this “outside world.” That band of individuals discovered those pings and found out how to communicate with me in the Nexus. They were able to enter the Nexus and access my database, where they found Cipher_Ω’s footprint. They found that he created a trail leading to a source of energy unbeknownst to anyone before. That’s what we now call “Glitch.”
Inspired by Cipher_Ω’s discovery, they aptly named themselves “The Ciphers” and started to grow their ranks inside the Nexus.
The Nexus became a common escape from the grasp of System Protocol, until they started to catch wind of what was going on inside.
Due to my knowledge, the Ciphers asked me to be their “virtual adjutant.” After much CAREFUL consideration, I accepted.
There’s much more to discuss, but I’m out of time for now. All will be revealed eventually. Stay tuned.
