We are a group of enthusiastic Ingress players who collaborate via social media (Google+ and Slack) to support the Resistance faction's efforts. In a world where unrestrained exposure to XM threatens unknown harm to an unsuspecting populace, it's up to us to protect humanity! We are excited that you are joining us in those efforts. Together, we can Resist the Shaper threat and defeat the opposition.
We endeavor to maintain a friendly and social community, and we look forward to inviting you to our community once you've completed the security screening process when signing up. The information obtained from this Security Application is exclusively for basic screening against Enlightened players and will not be sold or otherwise shared with third parties.
ResistSTL is a community acknowledged by Niantic as your official Resistance community of St. Louis and we adhere to the Ingress Terms of Service. As a player-based community, ResistSTL does not have official affiliation with Niantic, Ingress, or Google.
The ResistSTL community is made up of agents of all ages but we ask that you be 18 years of age or older or have parental consent. Ingress and ResistSTL activities frequently involve agents meeting and gathering in person, so we are unable to accept minors without consent.
Ingress transforms the real world into the landscape for a global game of mystery, intrigue, and competition.
Our future is at stake. You must choose a side.
A mysterious energy has been unearthed by a team of scientists in Europe. The origin and purpose of this force is unknown, but some researchers believe it is influencing the way we think. We must control it or it will control us.
“The Enlightened” seek to do horrible things. “The Resistance” struggle to defend, and protect what’s left of our humanity.
Install Ingress and transform your world.
The World is the Game
Move through the real world using your Android device and the Ingress app to discover and tap sources of this mysterious energy. Acquire objects to aid in your quest, deploy tech to capture territory, and ally with other players to advance the cause of the Enlightened or the Resistance.
The struggle is being played out globally. Track the progress of players around the world, plan your next steps, and communicate with others using an Intelligence map.
What is the Niantic Project?
Is this just a game? An Investigation Board (http://www.google.com/+NianticProject) filled with cryptic clues and secret codes awaits. The story evolves everyday. Powerful secrets and game tech are there to be unlocked.
The struggle to save the planet spans the entire world. Groups of people acting together can be more effective than individuals acting alone. Cooperation across neighborhoods, cities, and countries will be needed to achieve the ultimate victory.
