Round 1 of the EVOKE Treasure Hunt has come to a close, and the results are in!

I’m very happy to introduce you to some agents you probably haven’t met, but you really should get to know. Per the rules of Round 1, they are agents from South America and Africa, with fewer than 100 power votes (at the time), who posted evidence that is original and of high quality. [Cue applause]
