The Jarvis Shards

First mentioned in this post

As part of Operation #13MAGNUS , a new chapter in global gameplay is about to emerge: Jarvis Shards. At the beginning of #13MAGNUS the XM entity known as Roland Jarvis was shattered into 13 pieces. These Jarvis Shards scattered throughout the world. Now, Enlightened Agents must reunite them in order resurrect their leader. Resistance Agents will be seeking to destroy the shards, and by doing so, rid the world of Roland Jarvis forever. This effort will literally span the globe as Agents from the over 200 countries where Ingress is currently being played cooperate to achieve their goal, leading to the final confrontation at the end of #13MAGNUS on December 14, 2013.

More info was given by Brandon Badger in this post.

Who will control the Jarvis Shards? Enlightened or Resistance?

The Shards move between Portals via Links. Enlightened agents will be trying to direct the Shards from around the globe to a Target Portal. Resistance agents will attempt to block those efforts and redirect the Shards to their own Target Portal.

Each Shard sits on a Portal and every hour attempts to move along a Link. If there are multiple Links, the Shard picks one, with some preference toward a Link that it didn't just take.

Once a Shard reaches a Target Portal, it will stick there. But if the opposing faction conquers the Target Portal and creates Links, then the Shards can be transferred back off the target and out into the field of play.

Scientists aren't exactly sure what the consequences will be if all 13 Shards are reunited, but rest assured that it's safer if your faction does the unification.
