Kemetic Solutions is the name of the company that runs The Cagliostro's email server. They played a major role in Phase Three.

Description Edit

Kemetic Solutions is a self-described technology company who invests in defense and medical technology. The company appears to be invested in advancing the human race, according to their internal promo.

According to Aether, there is a much darker side to Kemetic Solutions than the image they externally present. Kemetic Solutions has kidnapped magically adept individuals and performed tests on them, aiming for them to open a door into the magical world[1]. Their goal is world domination, including complete mind control over all humans.

History Edit

Recruits first encountered Kemetic Solutions indirectly in Fragment Five, immediately noting the company logo in The Cagliostro's inbox [2]. The name Kemet was tied to Ancient Egyptian lore, but no information could be found on the company.

The name Kemetic Solutions appeared once again in Fragment Ten, after Martin Rank investigated the headquarters of the company in his search for more information on Lauren Ellsworth and The Cagliostro [3]. Although Martin was unable to enter the building, he was able to take photos of its exterior. After posting the photos to the forum, they appeared glitched. Hidden images were found in the glitched parts of the photos, including the words k.s. From this, a Mountaineer found the website Kemetic.Solutions [4]. The website was limited to a landing page - the Kemetic Solutions logo with butterflies flying out of it.

Initially confused, the recruits found that more information was hidden in Martin's photos - the first being a .gif file. Hidden within the .gif was a password protected Word document called patience.rtf. Once the document was unlocked with the password 'aether', a the note was found that said "63 minutes" [5]. After waiting on the Kemetic Solutions page for 63 minutes, the page redirected to another, one with a video labeled Internal KSPromo.

After viewing the video, recruits noticed a new user editing posts - xxxxaetherxxxx. The user edited times and dates into various posts. Through this, recruits were able to pinpoint a date and time based on trends within the edits, coming to the conclusion that something would occur on April 3, at 5:30[6]. At that time, the promo video changed - including clips of an unknown man speaking to someone named Aether.

The following is a transcription of the changes:

"Meet us. Please. Just forty minutes. We'd like to talk to you face to face. We have some questions and, uh, I think we can do some incredible things."

'I'm going to show this card to the camera on my phone. And I want you to tell me what the camera sees. I want you to see through my phone. Does that make sense to you, Aether. I want you to try very hard and I want you to show me what you are truly capable of."

"I want you to reach out with your mind and into my phone. I want the camera to become your eyes. I want the processor to become your mind."

"I believe you could find a family with us. A family, Aether. Perhaps for the first time in your life. No, we have no interest in changing your mind, but with your mind, we will change everything."

Aether's Livestream

Aether's Livestream

Through hidden images in the new video clips, recruits were able to track down the Tumblr page of Aether's friend, Constance. Through her, Recruits were able to perform the Joradian Safeguard Spell to protect their site and have a frank conversation with her. They learned that Aether had disappeared after being approached by a man who said he knew what he could do and wanted to help him[7]. Constance helped Recruits track down Aether's tumblr account, finding a livestream set for five days in the future[8].

In his livestream, Aether described his harrowing time with Kemetic Solutions. They were keeping him in an underground bunker along with a Mountaineer and a girl, drugging them and using them in sleep studies. Using the path Brandon Lachmann took to escape the world, Kemetic Solution planned to open the door into the magiqal world. However, Brandon being a special case, the three were unable to replicate his journey[9].
