Video Search: How YOU can help right now!Posted by Robert on September 13, 2016 at 12:44 pm
Hi all. We’ve a lot of new people the last few days and I know very well there’s a ton of information to catch up on and more every day if we’re lucky. Here’s the short version of how you can help today, right now, while or even before you do any of the reading. I’ll post a long version after this with the why.
There’s a video, it’s 6 hours long and can be downloaded at http://bit.ly/2cje8zn
Somewhere in this video we expect there’s a 3-4 second segment with a single word visible.
We need that word to continue.
Download the video and post here you want to help. I’ll give you a half hour chunk of the video to focus on. Watching that would be a HUGE help to the Mountaineers. After your half hour, watch more at your leisure, ask for another segment, or just be content you helped out and get back to reading.
If we split this up, it will make this work much easier on all of us and get us the next fragment we need all the faster.
1: 0:00 – 0:30 –
2: 0:30 – 1:00 –
3: 1:00 – 1:30 –
4: 1:30 – 2:00 –
5: 2:00 – 2:30 –
6: 2:30 – 3:00 –
7: 3:00 – 3:30 –
8: 3:30 – 4:00 –
9: 4:00 – 4:30 –
10: 4:30 – 5:00
11: 5:00 – 5:30 –

The long version:
The Book of Briars has hinted strongly that KingRabbit717 is in possession of the 2nd of 16 fragments we need to unlock the book.
KingRabbit717 has set up a series of riddles that led us to locate 4 works of art within New York City.
One we found the names related to each section of the puzzle, the first 3 have unlocked a video, slightly over 6 hours long which is essentially a repeating 47 second clip over and over and over again. These clips can be found at http://burrowinthefray.com/
In the first 2 videos, people (I believe @Dave specifically) has found a 3-4 second clip with a single word.
Examples: (I’m bad at posting images right now)
The first image:
The second image:
We believe putting these words together will help us unlock the 2nd Fragment and most us one step closer to unlocking the Book of Briars.
All help is appreciated, even if it’s just morale support!

I’m going to be getting the vid downloaded in the next few hours or so when im free of stuff, but ill put my name down to help
CrytterMemberSeptember 13, 2016 at 2:31 pm
Watching the last 30 minutes tomorrow.
EDIT: Found nothing
RobertMemberSeptember 13, 2016 at 2:34 pm
Thanks for the help!
DustinMemberSeptember 13, 2016 at 5:37 pm
Hi, @Robert! I’m happy to help out with a couple of the time slots!
RobertMemberSeptember 13, 2016 at 5:45 pm
revenaisreveMemberSeptember 13, 2016 at 8:23 pm
I’m currently downloading the file, but I’ll grab the 4:30 slot once it’s done.
Edit: I didn’t find anything from 4:30 – 5:00. I’ll give another time frame a go once my brain has healed a little. @_@
RobertMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 1:05 am
Didn’t see anything in 4:00-4:30. I’ll keep poking around. Maybe Balorian instincts and/or blind luck will let me find it.
EndriMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 1:55 am
I’m a little worried this one might be tougher to spot. If we don’t find it this round, maybe we should break the video down into even smaller chunks and move through it again?
revenaisreveMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 2:23 am
Hmm… That’s a troubling thought. This guy’s really not playing around with this beast of a video.
While we figure out our next plan of attack, I’ll give section 6 a shot. Hopefully luck’s on my side and I’ll find it.
EDIT: I’m not seeing anything.
darkmimicMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 2:26 am
Hey all, sorry I’ve been out of the loop a bit. The more people we have watching the video the better since it allows us to focus on smaller chunks of the video. The reason that’s important is because the word only appears for three seconds. It fades in and fades out so quickly that you can easily look away and miss it. Which means we have to watch it CONSTANTLY. I got very lucky with the first two videos. I’ve watched this video three times and haven’t found the clue yet so it’s possible it may flash for less than three seconds (I wouldn’t put it past KR to play a little dirty like that).
I’ll watch the 6 Slot: 2:30-3:00 this evening and let you know what I find. Good luck everyone!
revenaisreveMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 3:22 am
@mike – You’ve watched this three times and haven’t found anything? Man, that’s rough. I wonder if maybe we should try slowing the video down? There’s got to be some way we can tackle this.
darkmimicMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 5:44 am
It’s been rough. I’ll have to watch it at normal speed but finding the time is going to be difficult. I did watch the 2:30-3:00 section but came up with nothing. Hopefully someone else has some luck. It’s got to be in there somewhere.
AlisonBMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 8:22 am
This sounds good – well done guys. Loving the organisation I’ll look at chunk 2 again and report back.
DustinMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 3:01 pm
I’ve watched my section a few times now, and have come up with nothing.
DustinMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 3:28 pm
Just got this response from KR!
Not sure who he’s referring to, but I guess he might be telling us we’ve missed it? I guess I’ll go back to my section (my Instagram username doesn’t align with my name on here, so he could very well be referring to me!)…
RobertMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 3:30 pm
Well at least we can be pretty sure there’s something there now. I’ll rewatch mine tonight.
Edit: Uh…KR’s new instagram story is just him saying Bobby…over and over, 6 times to be exact. I guess I missed something?
EndriMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 3:41 pm
Ugh, that is so creepy @Robert. Let’s all take a look at the 4:00-4:30 segment…
KR’s helping us, I’m assuming, but he’s a horrible creep about it.
RobertMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 3:43 pm
I’m downloading it on my phone now, I don’t have access to my pc it’s on during the day. But I’ll get back to it shortly.
Oh…it’s on, KingRabbit. It is on.
EndriMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 4:02 pm
I can’t check the video right now but this is the image KR posted for anyone not using Instagram.
Edit: I just noticed the monocle he drew around the eye. He’s the worst.
RobertMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 5:16 pm
I rewatched 4:00 – 4:30. I did not see anything. I know for a fact my mind wandered at various points here and there though.
Sorry if I’m being dense and holding us up. I just saw nothing. I’ll work on a better way to look at this.
revenaisreveMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 5:29 pm
I’m gonna watch it at normal speed, get a second pair of eyes on this thing. After that, I’ll try slowing it down, see if that helps any.
EDIT: I’m not seeing anything at 4:00 – 4:30 at a normal speed. Time to slow this bad boy down…
AlisonBMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 5:52 pm
I’ve been through 0:30 – 1:00 three times and there is nothing there King rabbit sucks!!!
KelseyMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 8:05 pm
Maybe we should try and slow the 4:00 – 4:30 segment down to half speed, then divide and conquer again. Have 12 very slow moving 5 minute segments?
chameleoninkMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 8:43 pm
Who knew staring at a GD pastoral scene would be so fucking anxiety inducing?!?
I stared at 4:25-4:30 pretty fricking hard. Saw nothing. At least I can participate now that I know you can watch it on your phone. I could never get it to download to my computer.
But you know what you can’t do while watching a GD pastoral video on your phone? ANYTHING ELSE! Including listening to a podcast or audiobook which are on said phone.
I officially hate this part. __
EDIT: Just watched 4:20-4:25 Nothing.
If the word isn’t in this section I’m going on a rabbit hunt.
EDIT: Just watched 4:15-4:20 Nothing.
Are we sure it’s in this section?
RobertMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 9:12 pm
We are not sure. All we know is kr told Dustin to tell his friend tof look harder. Then he posted his post saying Bobby 6 times.
It’s a logical assumotion it could be in that section but we are not 100 percent sure of anything.
chameleoninkMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 9:24 pm
That makes sense, @Robert.
I just watched 4:10-4:15 Nothing.
I feel like I’m the lady who has seizures in the Andromeda Strain.
DustinMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 9:30 pm
Just to clarify, I sent KR another message saying that I (we) had assumed that his reference to “Bobby” meant Robert, and I told him that I just wanted to make sure I was relaying his instructions correctly and to the right person.
Hopefully that will get us either a bit more info, or some clarification that we’re looking in the right spot!
EDIT: I’ll watch 4:05-4:10 slowed down!
EDIT #2: I FOUND IT!!!
At 4:04:57, the word “OF” appears.
revenaisreveMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 10:40 pm
Dude, congrats, @dustin! You rock!
Now it’s on to the next field. T_T
chameleoninkMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 9:37 pm
On to the next video, aye??
I sent KR a message letting him know it was found. Let’s do this!!!
RobertMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 10:19 pm
Brandon Lachmann did not die in 1986
New video up. Link in original post has been updated, and the schedule is cleared out. If you’d like to watch a segment, download and sign on up. I’ll be back in 2-3 hours when my slow AF internet finishes downloading it.
darkmimicMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 11:08 pm
Great job @Dustin! And to keep the ball rolling, I found the next clue!
The word is “MOONS” It shows up at 4:58:21.
So, now what happens?
RobertMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 11:29 pm
I would like to take this moment to professional my utter admiration for your skill at this
darkmimicMemberSeptember 15, 2016 at 3:13 am
Thank you, but it was really luck. I had a short window of time after I downloaded the video so I scanned it going backwards. I got lucky, but I’ll take it after the slog we all suffered trying to find the last clue.
darkmimicMemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 11:12 pm
So these are the words found in the videos so far:
So, there are really only two sentences we can make from these, right? “Eye of the moons” and “Moons of the eye.” I tried entering them into the last box on the burrow in the fray site but to no avail. It’s quite possible that this is still only part of the equation, that we will get one last video with the final clue and that will give us the fragment. Has KR posted anything new in the past few hours other than taunts?
jwwoodall3MemberSeptember 14, 2016 at 11:29 pm
There’s a new clue at the bottom of KR’s page now.
The oldest, but only a child, _______ ________ did not die in ____
