    Default Q14

    Hola all! I'm new to the site and relatively new to the quest and am having a heck of a time with this one. Can anyone tell me if we're working with playfair or ceasar or neither, lol. Thanks in advance =)

    If you wrote it all out ... then sometimes just looking at it from a different perspective will help. This one for you should be very very easy as you might speak different languages.

    Default Hi Ednel

    Thanks so much for the reply =) I've figured out the poem and password for this chapter, it's question 14 that's giving me a headache, lol. I'm sure I'm making it much more difficult than it is, but nothing I've tried is working!

    You have what you need to solve question 14 - keep trying different ciphers.

    It's that old chestnut Q15 again. I have assumed that the numbers refer to the line of text and letter number in that line from Chapter 7 itself, as there is no third number to define a page number or chapter number. This of course brings up a load of nonsense, which not being put off by this I have tried to solve with various ciphers, without success.

    Am I barking up the wrong tree?

    You have the right method and are correct that the source is not Chapter 7 from the book. There is a clue at another website that offers a hint for what to use for the source.

    FYI, when I did decode this I had two errors in the middle part, but you can still tell what it should say.

    have fun,

    Thanks,

    I looked in the Optical Cross and then went through all the Archives (well most of them..., well about half actually) until I found an article that was long enough and wide enough. Et voila! another Eureka moment in the bag. Now for Ch.8... Hmmm!

    I feel stupid. I think the answer has been spelled out in the above, but I still cannot make sense of the numbers in question 15!! Any other suggestions??
