Hey all! Got a code from ((Delta)):
Judges carry my keys, but locks keep my secrets:
Send the following numbers to Xenocrtographer, he will know what it means:
834 1804 955 418 992 56 1336 218 1333 2648 1920 207

Alright, so I received yet another PM from Delta, which should clear up the question of the significance of those coordinates. He presented the information in the form of an RSS news feed, which is a really clever form of storytelling in my opinion. It also makes for some pretty good humour.

RSS Feed:

/rss news
Accessing your subscriptions for tag "news"... Applying filters... Found top five (5) articles for today:
(1) BBC_Official: Iolanthe's live deep-space stream on the NASA homepage abruptly ended: freeze-framing on what many referred to as an "Eldritch Horror".
(2)LATimes_Official: Gunman in front of the L.A.P.D. headquarters: one dead, three in I.C.U.
(3)SportsIllustrated: The Swimsuit Issue is back! Checkout our hot new models for the year.
(4)BuzzfeedOfficial: Hot Fuzz remake in the works by producers: Big Talk Productions.
/rss news 3

Not that I trust local papers of small towns...

Analysis:
The Iolanthe article was a nice touch, the Sports Illustrated article made me chuckle, and the Hot Fuzz article is probably the most exciting thing I've ever seen, but of course it's the LA Times article that's important here. The shooting happened right in front of the police station, which is exactly where the coordinates were pointing to. "This is what happens when you are disobedient." So there's pretty much no doubt about it now, that message was a threat. It seems pretty likely that the person that message was addressed to was one of the victims of the shooting (unless they were just random civilians who were attacked in order to send a message, which is some scary shit,) probably the one who was killed. Was that the Inquisitor I wonder? There's also the question of who the gunman was. Delta himself? Probably not, it's more likely it would be an accomplice of his. Perhaps the Executor? The title would certainly be fitting.

The most chilling detail about this is that the shooting was clearly planned well in advance, or Delta wouldn't have been able to send the message in the first place (unless he can predict the future, which is even scarier.) Furthermore, if the victim was the intended recipient of the message, it means that the gunman would have had to have known that they would be there at this time. Perhaps the victim worked there? From the fact that there were three other victims as well, we can infer that Delta and his friends don't exactly go out of their way to prevent collateral damage. But the article never specifies who all of these injured parties were. Police officers? Bystanders? Hell, one of them could even be the gunman himself. We don't know if he was shot, captured, or remains at large.

In any case, this pseudonarrative has taken a very dark turn. Our code master was involved in a murder. There was very little doubt in my mind that Delta's persona is not a very heroic figure, but this confirms it.

As a final note, I don't think this was supposed to be my RSS feed within the confines of the narrative. As I jokingly said to Delta, I'm certainly not subscribed to the LA Times. My guess is that this is either Delta's RSS feed or someone else's, a copy of which was sent to me as a PM. Whoever this feed comes from clearly already decided to read the third article (which is understandable, honestly), so I don't think I can interact with this PM and request more details about the second article. Nonetheless, I figured it was worth a shot, so I did include the "/rss news 2" command in a response I sent to Delta. I'll let you guys know if anything comes of that.
