Welcome to Black Flag: A Coding Club Mission

In Marshall Trent’s Reunited Kingdom every citizen of New Edgehill has a neurochip implanted within them that links directly to the Neuralnet.

The Neuralnet sees and records every thought, movement and microscopic detail of every life in New Edgehill. Absolute control!

Cal Jones believes he is no different from everyone else. That is until he saves the life of Sasha and learns that everything that he thought was true is in fact a lie. He discovers an underground group, the Anarchists, living outside of the Neuralnet and harbouring a secret which will change his life forever.

Join Danni as you train as an Anarchist


This is a Coding Club mission. This means that you can get far more involved in this book than any other you have read before – should you wish to. To register for free, all you need to do is enter an activation code and fill in a short form. Unfortunately we cannot just leave activation codes in plain view. You will have to visit the Black Flag website and think like a true hacker – ignore the visuals and dig into the code!

I will guide you throughout your training as an Anarchist agent. You will solve many of the assignments that Cal, Sasha and I face in our struggle. Do not worry if you are still a novice programmer, there is lots of guidance and hints along the way.

All the preparation that is necessary is that you have worked through Coding Club: Python Basics. Alternatively you should be fine if you have learnt a little Python 3 some other way. You simply need to have a grasp of how to write variables and functions, perform simple maths operations and manipulate strings. You should also know how to save and load files in IDLE.

It is not going to be easy, but trying to save the World never is!
