    Hi Beth,

    Page 12, Neptune says "Take this key, a token of my overflowing chest of feelings"

    So, one of the interpretations I took was

    X T C
    X ta C

    ECSTASY

    There may be some more to it.

    I thought of ecstasy a while back. who knows?

    How about X marks the spot?
    (x) (c) (+) (*)

    x is obvious
    c could be trademark
    + is like a t in the
    * is a spot

    s

    Steve,

    I do believe there is more to it than ECSTASY.

    all that matters on this page

    1653

    x = t * c (* = multiply)

    alpha substitution descending -
    t = 7
    c = 24

    168 = 7 x 24

    16 (5+3) = 168

    Hi BS+CRS!

    Originally, I was playing with synonyms to ecstasy and came up with such terms as dreamland, heaven... anyway. The numbers got me curious.

    16 (5+3) = 168
    trying a simple substitution

    1=A
    6=F
    5=E
    3=C

    FACE ... or CAFE

    Umm...unsure what the 168 is about, though... Not sure if any of this helps.

    Happy Troving!

    Beth

    Hi BS+CRS

    I understand how you arrived at your numbers. The 16 (5+3) seems a bit of a stretch though, but a very interesting coincidence. I was terrible in math so please correct me if I am wrong, but writing it as you did:
    16(5+3)=168, this is not meant to be taken directly as a mathematical equation like the above x=t(c), is that correct? I say this because I don't think 16(5+3) would equal 168. Once again correct me if I am wrong, but I believe you are simply trying to imply that the chest has the numbers 1653. Isolating the 16 gives you the remaining numbers of 5 and 3. The sum of 5 and 3 is 8. You then have 168 which was the solution to the x=t(c) equation.

    If you care to divulge more information, what exactly do these numbers signify to the overall puzzle?
