Ingress and the Niantic project due to many factors like the extensive time it exists and the vast amount of players world wide , has made some of the most dedicated players to create their own off-shots of the official storyline in many forms. The idea of this page is to show those pieces of work. Please remember that all of these are non-official, but in some occasions they end up referred by official sources (wether re-shared by the likes of Brandon Badger or Joe Philley, or even in special cases posted in PAC's board.

Description - Today, when I was fighting for the Resistance, a strange thing happened! In one hack to a neutral portal I got a media file. I decided to see what was on it and I could only hear a screeching sound before my scaner become inoperative. I quickly returned to the headquarters of the Oporto Resistance and handed my scanner to our technicians so they could check what was happening to it. They were able to repair the equipment and extract the sound file that caused the damage. We took the file to our scientists and they were able to find and decode a worrying message on it. Embedded in the sound file were some glyphs. Its translation is the following: “human obstacle future purity abandon peace attack civilization attack resistance attack enlightened”.
Dividing the message we can see three distinct parts “human obstacle future purity” (we are a threat to the Shapers plans), “abandon peace” (a clear indication to start the war), “attack civilization attack resistance attack enlightened” (express orders on which targets to attack“
This can only mean one thing, the Shapers are preparing a global offensive against all humans. They will not distinguish between Resistance or Enlightened, they are preparing a global offensive to exterminate our species… We were considered an obstacle to their plans and have to be eliminated.
The Resistance decided to make this information public so that all humans can prepare for what is to come. Resistance or Enlightened we are all a target for the Shapers…
Don't believe us, see for yourself!

Description - His story began with a simple phone glitch
“I don't know what happened to my phone. I was trying to take a picture, and it somehow ended up taking video. I'm running 4.0.4 on the ICS Pureness and can't recreate the problem it had. The video recording isn't even working anymore. It crashes the app when I try it. Does anyone have any ideas?”

Description - Thanks for mentioning the #TCE local lore as an example of what I am sure so many fans will enjoy emulating the creative efforts. +Hugo Neves , We find it works on a few levels, but what I like most is how it lets the players themselves feel invested on a personal level.
If you are interested read on for What Ingress has unveiled to The Tulare County Enlightened Guild. Through a serendipitous series of event I ended up meeting two brothers of a local tribe of Real Americans. These guys are pretty cool and radiate a peace about them. If you are stressed it fades when you talk to either of them. Just A class characters too.
I invited them to play this game called +Ingress. I was building a team and some how knew they'd like this “game”. Immediately they leved past me and have been our strongest asset to the entire county. We have a belief that the brothers are sensitives as well. They seem to understand that the Shapers represent a similarity to the way many come to regard as God(s). Consider that we could have globally shared the ancient concept of an intangible and conscious influence. There is a connection the two brothers have had with the earth as they have grown up going to what could be portals and quite possibly XM concentrations. As brothers +Kowonash Franco , and +Lahoci Franco have leveled up faster than any one else in the area as they know the meaning of team work. To make a long story short there was a time when +Kowonash Franco was playing and sensed something by a light and when he approached it looked like smoke, as he got to the light it started on fire. He quickly stamped it out, and when if he wasn't drawn to that portal, he wouldn't have stopped that light and bark turning in to real trouble.
As a personal friend and being Enlightened I suggested that it was more than a coincidence, but the investigation continues for our guild. We are searching with our scanners and we hope to uncover some of the oldest portals that have been created long before Europeans colonized the land. We want to find if there is anything different about ancient portals.

With another round of #13Magnus on our doorstep, several agents requested that I release the results of my Hyperthread experiment from a little over two months ago. While this method is extremely dangerous, I would feel much better knowing that it wasn't the exclusive property of a corporation. So here it is, my gift to humanity...
