Help Wanted with Mysterious Message: Seeking Henna
This is not SWTOR related at all but I got this mysterious message from someone in Bioware and I need help figuring it out.
There are two websites on this picture. The first one is seekinghenna.com. There is a police report and a post up there. I think there is a hidden message in that post. Notice how certain letters are underlined?
The second website is Woods-Watston Institute at http://www.woods-watsoninstitute.info/. Seems like a normal school website. However, if you go into the subreddit linked at the bottom of that blog.. you will find this post..which raised up some good points.
There wasn’t much new information. Seriously, what’s the point of writing a report if half of it is just going to be redacted? Thankfully, there was at least one thing that stood out to me: The Woods-Watson Institute.
Henna was home schooled. Why was she spending so much time on this school’s site? And why had she never mentioned it to me? I went to their website, but things just got weirder. There’s no listed address, no information about their admissions process, and it looks like they’re using stock imagery for the campus.
Are you going to the SDCC in San Diego this weekend? If so maybe you can find this Blake person?
Finding From Readers
1. Infernal/Fractal_Eye did some digging on the courses section of the school and found some weird things on the electives section. Explorations of Percival Fawcett: 1927-1956 and Literature of Barbara Newhall Follett: 1965-1985 are not possible because these are two real people who have disappeared in 1927 and 1939 respectively so it suggests another dimension where these people did not disappear. The other weird stuff are the courses on incorporeal entities (ghosts), ancient civilizations, hieroglyphics, technologically-hostile environments, and aetheric solids,
2. Theho did some digging on the domain registration and found that the school website and seekinghenna.com all have being registered by EA. In addition, a third website http://www.youve-been-chosen.com/ was also registered around the same time by EA. Going to that website reveal this creepy trailer. It looks like a bunch of people were also sent with an email to this trailer. If the website is down for you, all it has is this trailer and a notice that more info will be coming out around Gamescom.

3. thewatcheruatu figured out that the very tiny message on that reddit post with the word HOEUNTNHAEARREEIYH is actually a cipher. It spells out Henna Are You There if you take the every second letter.
4. Here is the email that Bioware sent out to a lot of people..
