    HUH!? All right, if you are mocking me I don't think it is funny. If that was a hint, it went right over my head. My difficulty has always been that once I see how to apply something, I have no problem working it out. I just have a hard time in finding the application I need to use in the first place. But that's the point of these puzzles, isn't it? Lol! I guess I'm on my own on this one.

    Thanks anyways,

    Ace, I was not mocking you. I don't know how stvwz's solve works, as my method didn't use a 5x5 technique. Apparently my reference led me to something different from him, judging by his post. I was just trying to prod him into explaining himself. He hasn't done so publicly, but I have no problem doing so.

    Default Hints

    OK - Just saw the new posts. I had sent Ace a PM, but I can put it here. Molnar - your hint resulted in the same answer I have. IF you actually create the 5x5, you will see that "A" is a knights move away from the stacked pair QL, D is to TO, etc.

    Now I have had some luck with the bottom and have sent Aaron an email with an answer. Not all of the code was intelligible, so not sure if it is right.


    Yes, the stick figures are a graphic representation of the story characters.

    Good luck

    Steve

    Ah, so my idea for the method was correct. Unfortunately I never went past the first line last night, so never got anything intelligible. The 107 definitely should have been a 108, though. I can hardly contain a chortle.

    Got the top part. Thanks for your help. I actually had the keyword with the letter pairs correct. I just didn't make the leap to the next line down. Haven't looked at the bottom yet. Good luck Steve with your answer. I'll keep working it as well and see what I come up with.

    I thought 108 fit better. Were you able to make anything out of the first line besides ABNGRAR?

    No, I figured the setter just put garbage in the beginning to mask the solution and make it harder.

    Does the bottom part have anything to do with pulling letters out of the chapter. My eyes are getting sore trying to count each letter. Lol!
