    Today's event stopped at the Vesper Youth Hostel and pauses there until Sunday Sept. 22nd at 8 est. There are deeds on top of chests scattered all over the Hostel. They are codes that need to be broken. EM Bennu has said if we break these codes before Sunday he will be amazed.....

    So...

    let's try to amaze him. :)

    All that being said, I figured I would share my thoughts on the codes.....

    He's lying.

    The only person that could have beat that code that fast is Eli Wallace.

    You mean the event? Or the code once you crack it?

    The event hit several areas. Started in Skara, then to Glow Graveyard, then NE of Glow, then Vesper Graveyard and finally the Youth Hostel in Vesper. I think that is all the areas we covered anyway.

    So I broke the codes down into smaller repeating groups of letters...
    HXDNIX MN YJSPA BN FI YJSM BP HJ VVAN MN XOJG BH XQBJH VA BQN YJSM BP HJ VVAN MN Q JBF YJS VA BFN RJGN PRJFFNRQJM QAN O JBF XHIO FNNIQ XP QNQJOFJJI XHIO JHNP INFBUNM YJS I NX QAJVH YJSM TJM ZJE QAN O MBH EX HI GN TJM RJGN YJSM NW BP QXHRN BP TJM TNBQ QAN MN BP HJ MN P BP QXHRN QJ YJSM IJJG H NX MI MX V PN HI YJSM RJGN PRJFFNRQJM QAN NKXR PN JHP BN MN AQP MN QPXGNQ BH BMJW MSJY YOQHNP MJQRNFFJRNAQGXB SHGXD BH E YJSM QJDNY ZJE JTO JHNP QAN MN QSMHWJ MBH BQN QAN X MN VN FFNAPFXQMJG MSJY PQ MX KIH XP NRNBK MSJY MJQRNFFJRNAQGXB
    Then at about 3am, something kind of clicked for me. Now I haven't managed to find a cipher or actually fully solve it, but I HAVE made a fair bit of progress. I think.

    EDIT: So here's what I got... I'm not 100% sure, but I think it's like 99% :p

    Yepp. But is it just me or does it read better with the second line being first....almost like it's the closing of the message *shrugs*

    Yeah, that sounds better. I'm just trying to put all the words in proper order first. Then I'll worry about putting the sentences in order :p

    Last line isnt correct, no proper order.

    I was worried Id have to drop a hint later tonight somehow.

    Also... Faeryl, please get a Job with NSA. Seriously :p

    That was a Reversed Caesar Cypher with no spaces... not easy to crack.

    You know, I have yet to actually solve one of these things by figuring out the cipher? HAH

    Close enough.

    Also, for the sake of futureness. The Cypher was "XORINITE" and the code was backwards as if reading through a mirror.

    Well done Faeryl.

    Well done.

    Well, this is what happens when I stare at jumbled letters too long. I just looked at it again and saw 'return'. I was reading it wrong all squished together like that. heh

    A serious talent. At one point I gave up and started trying to use online code breakers and they were stumped... and she did it with pen and paper?!? Great job!

    Good ol' pen and paper. *pats her notebook*

    First the E, then the L, next came 'the collector'... It all just started falling into place after that. :D
