The April Fools ARG was a prank by the Game Detectives moderators on 2016-04-01 that appeared to be the much-promised "inhouse" ARG. It wasn't.

A Tale of the Events Upon the First of April, Sixteen Years Upon Two Thousand


This is a silly timeline
that has been
made to rhyme.

This ARG began in a channel named
#arg-inhouse for how it once behaved.

A command written beno inhousearg led to a code
known as QR; it was quite the load.

This code led to a link on an established website
belonging to Benolot, a moderator quite.

The password, "Opl", accrued;
named of a user most valued.

This led to an image, sneaky.png,
with a poem of Opl, filled with glee.


This Opl was known for a command
when about to eat, to remind:
Shiina remind 10m f became a lead
to this link, felt rather need.

A rar was downloaded from this;
the password being Opl, nothing was amiss.

This held a new file, f.png,
which showed what a fake was this ARG.

Just an April Fools joke was this flick
with more than one limerick,
although not all of these
rhymed successfully.


The Reward


Thanks for playing everyone!

It was only an april fools joke! We may run an Inhouse-ARG Sometime in the future (it's currently 4-5 months behind schedule). While you were solving it, we wrote some limericks we thought you'd enjoy.

there once was a mod named svard
who was constantly always on guard
when asked why this was,
he said "it's becuase
the bans i hand out make me hard."

- crash

crash wrote a poem about Svard,
Proving himself quite the bard
The mods were all moved,
Svardskampe approved
And the fake ARG was prepard

- imnotgoats

there once was a coder named beno
whose programming skills were no bueno
she asked pica for help,
who then just said "welp,
i'm gonna jump in a volcano"

- crash

Dr. Dino liked laughing at words
Found humour in all that he heard
Tried to find a domain
That included his name
But they had all been taken by nerds

- imnotgoats

Picapi was feeling absurd
So stepped into a discourse he heard
He listened quite far
Changed his own avatar
And returned as an antarctic bird

- imnotgoats

there once was a writer named goats
who ardently wrote up his notes
describing sex tables
but he wasn't able
to give any good anecdotes

- crash

wyh always felt quite a rift
As his time zone was not quite a gift
He tried to keep up
But overfloweth the cup
Cuz he was stuck on perpetual night-shift

- imnotgoats

there once was a mod named sarcastic
the last part of his name was fantastic
he was not here for this
and we will always miss
the mr. sarcastic fantastic

- crash

Sarcastic logged off too early
Couldn't join in the fake ARG
The other mods felt quite bad
And wished that he had
But he didn't, so Sarc, we're sorry


goats isnt brave, hes a bit of a coward
he toldus  a story of how he sexually flowered
he regrets what he sent
said he asked for a friend
and thats how we learned that his real name is howard

- Dr. Dino

(Goats name isn't Howard btw, it's an internal mod meme)

And just remember... ITS JUST A PRANK BRO!
