"Discovered" by KLind on August 2, 2007, this Glyph appeared in an email titled "Halo 3: The fight comes home on 9/25." How this Glyph went by unnoticed until August is beyond me (Avateur), but the really interesting bit is how this Glyph showed up almost a month before Iris began.
File comment: Thanks KLind!

(Thank you 50401 for this image)

The third glyph found was AdjutantReflex's icon on, named "Chrysopteron."


The fourth glyph found is located on the last panel of the comic at


The fifth glyph found is located on a website connected to the (presumably fictional) organization entitled Society of the Ancients, or SOTA. The website was found by changing the "5" at the end of the IP address in the comic strip to "3" and heading to the "Evidence" page:


The sixth glyph was found in a newspaper ad meant to debut in the US on Sunday, June 17th. Needless to say, it was discovered (in the UK, if I remember correctly) days in advance.

Members of the SOTA organization were spotted in Times Square in New York City wearing yellow shirts and holding picket signs with the glyph (above) emblazoned on them. They were also handing out flyers.

AdjutantReflex, after being over-run and replaced by an unknown "superior" entity, had its "Chrysopteron" glyph changed.

This screenshot was taken from the Server 1 Open page and enhanced, showing another glyph.


After logging in to the Server 1 Open page, a rotating artifact reveals itself. Located on the object are five glyphs, one lit up.

At approximately 5:49 PM PST, AshofPompei embarked on a quest to find an Xbox 360 kiosk pointed out to him here. He found a new glyph, a hidden message, and what would eventually lead to the unlocking of Server 2.
