    If only the book were so easy... sigh.

    Yippee, I've discovered the first cipher tool
    Over 1,000 miles travelled in search of 1 token.

    Tokens found: zero. (no, I don't expect I'll have to edit this)

    Currently working on: Firefly, beetle.

    The clue asks "you did not see me or the one that is missing"

    This is the letter "Q"


    Using the Ceaser Cipher

    http://secretcodebreaker.com/caesar.html

    the message decodes to:

    YOU HAVE DISCOVERED THE FIRST CIPHER TOOL. COPY THE LETTERS AND USE A VIGNERE CIPHER:

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We need to copy the letters deciphered by the "Ceaser Cipher"

    U KWYW VYX YSBGTWX RDDIS, NYK HUIFR EEH KRXBCIH HIMDFV DH SGTA OUMFR JSW KVQ DZNJQXK JRQEE. XYSFI DRSCOM NXM UASARE HBVN BZUP LRIUDVRCMN GQFHNTV ZLURWEE – TFGGMBT XUH XUXIUEM GR RVCJ QIZQO – IAJ IWZY YWD TAGH NYG LEFBYP URWCEQOGMBQ BB YCRPIJX RVYZG JGQLARY - AF GHAXVC MBM PWCOW RE LOI XYSL SPGEVQMQ ZPG IHXSPAUKXIM.

    and put the letters into the VIGNERE CIPHER

    http://sharkysoft.com/misc/vigenere/


    Now in order to use the VIGNERE CIPHER, we need a "Key."

    (hint: What do the trees sing)

    Moon like, moon like. Dreamer one on ending. I cause your puzzling.

    and we have the following message:

    I WILL NOT MENTION NAMES, BUT THERE ARE CERTAIN PEOPLE ON THIS BOARD WHO ARE PLAYING GAMES. THESE PEOPLE ARE SAYING THEY HAVE DECIPHERED CERTAIN PHRASES – POSTING THE PHRASES ON THIS BOARD – AND WILL NOT POST ANY BACKUP INFORMATION TO SUPPORT THEIR PHRASES - OR SUPPLY ANY CLUES ON HOW THEY OBTAINED THE INFORMATION. THESE PEOPLE ARE INTENTIONALLY TRYING TO CREATE PROBLEMS ON THE BOARD. TIME WILL TELL ALL AND LET’S WAIT UNTIL APRIL FIRST FOR OUR NEXT CLUE. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE, GOODHUNTING.


    I hope you had fun!
