Well fret not ladies and gents. You too can have one. But first you have to head on over to the Nine Paths to Chloe King game site and start playing if you aren't into the game already! But read on for the details on how you can have your own Chloe King tee like mine...
I'd barely gotten up this morning and gotten the tot started on her breakfast before a knock at the door interrupted my turn-on-computer-to-check-email-and-simultaneously-make-coffee routine. My first thought was "awww crap which of my kids' friends doesn't get the school-is-out-sleep-in-till-noon-please thing". Nawwww it was FedEx dude! Suh-weet!
And he delivered a nice little goodie this morning... a t-shirt featuring the Mai symbol for Danger with a note!
The note reads:
The enclosed garment will lead you down the Sixth Path. You must examine it very closely to hear what you need to hear. Try to remember every detail you discover along this Path.
We need you to report what you hear back to the Mai via Email in order to receive the last challenge of this dangerous Path.
Upon quick examination I found a phone # on the inside near the butt...
...followed by some kind of code—an extension number—up in the neck area where a tagless tee might have a printed tag.
I called the # up, entered the extension # and after a very long pause thought maybe I was supposed to press # after it.... right as it started talking. Doh! Second time's a charm and I got a message from a man detailing that Chloe King is living n San Francisco, that she has nine lives and MUST be eliminated (that was the exact word lol so villainy!). The mystery voice also knows we Circles are helping the Mai protect Chloe.
Once I had my details I emailed our Mai contact for further instructions and was told I needed to share a transcript or voice recording of the message. I had no clue how to get started on that so I banged my head against my desk for a long time until I remembered that the MaiPad has a Voice Recording App. Bingo! I used it to record the call so I could write this transcript up for you.
We believe the Uniter is here, in San Francisco. If this girl is, in fact, The Uniter, remember she has nine lives. You must eliminate this threat. One word of caution, it has come to our attention that a group called The Circle is helping the Mai. Do not allow them to get in your way. I repeat: Do not allow The Circle to get in your way. Eliminate the threat.

I'm still not sure what the password is but please read the following official rulesy stuff for more details and go figure out the answer so you can claim your t-shirt. And hurry because there is a very limited number of these to go around! If I figure it out I will update y'all later and don't forget to follow me on Twitter: @RhiReading and watch for the #NinePaths hashtag for more clues and fun! -- Rhi
