A code...

Postby Impossible » Sat Apr 24, 2004 10:29 pm

In Episode 4, in one of the rooms on the Shadow Lord mission (well, two of them, but one only has some of them), there are books with a bunch of seemingly random numbers on them. But someone worked out in the IRC channel recently that they're in a code made with a phone, so that 2 can translate to a, b or c, 3 can be d, e, or f, and so on. So far, we've managed to translate most of them (the numbers are their event number on the screen, mysteriously the same numbers for the ones that appear in both rooms):

#22
Lexus, Lexus. I wish my vision of you was true. You were so beautiful.

#28
5 - 3 - 8 - 2
33722676
2656. 7774647

#29
Luke Wacholtz

#30
Rhue, it's been you all along. It's you.

#31
84373 47 66 663!
73176 743 539.
(it says it seems like something is missing)

#32
63267 86 6663.

#33
Mom, I love you. Dad, I love you. I hate myself. I am weak.

#35
Lyrra, you've known her a long time. She screamed.

I've been working on getting the last ones, but they're driving me insane. I've made columns for a couple of them that show below them each of the possible letters, so they can be lined up easier to form a word (copy them into notepad to read properly, they don't work in this font):

#28:
5 - 3 - 8 - 2
j - d - t - a
k - e - u - b
l - f - v - c

I've been constantly racking my brain trying to work these out. Does anyone here think they can help to get one? It seems like together, they might offer some clue to the story.

Boko
Bolo
Anlo
Anko
Coko
Colo
Amko
Amlo

Only words I could find to go in front of the one with "Springs".

mdamp to mood
nebnr
ofcos

Nebos
Necos
Ofams
Mebos
Mecos

Only ones I saw for that one.

5 - 3 - 8 - 2
j - d - t - a
k - e - u - b
l - f - v - c

This one of probably initials for something considering the dashes seperating the words. I doubt any of the ones I found were right. Great job on finding the others out people.

Fascinating! One day after history class when we learned about espionage in Ancient Greece, I went home and tried to figure out some of the codes, but I couldn't decode 'em... Well done, you guys!

Sorry guys... I'm really not too good at cracking codes... but maybe that can be a little bit helpful...

I also just realized I forgot the fourth digit... d'oh.

Wow, HumanBean, I never even thought of anything like that. See if you can finish working that one out.

And damn, yeah, I knew there must be something I could do there besides "mood", I don't know why I never found it. It still doesn't make much sense, though.

This was a tough one.

84373 47 66 663! : "There is no one!" :?:

73176 743 539 : "----- "rid/she" "key"??

This could be connected to event #32

Maybe #28 is his home address? 8) The first four numbers stay numbers and the rest are the street and city...? Colo. Springs......maybe....who knows.

I am trying to figure one of them out....but what is number 1?

Use that in your decoding attempts, if you haven't yet.
