    I assumed this, but I can't see how these number translate to the text (forwards or backwards)? Grrr.

    just so you know it is possible to ascertain the password without decoding the numbers.

    i still dont know what the numbers mean so i cant decode them but have gotten the password and opened the map for chapter 9

    That's the one thing I'm not sure of. Does it continue with the table, or does it move to the next section of text?

    I think my brain has given up. I thought I would try going backwards, but I can't figure out the next bit of the password either. All the things I look at don't fit. I am slowly going crazy, 123456 switch....

    Just to make sure one thing is clear, I have not yet determined the password, so my earlier post regarding decoding the numbers (with 100% certainty) is referring to an initial decoding of the numbers. There may be further analysis involved on the numbers that I have not found yet.

    Well I did it too myself once again. I start a solve and give up before I see it through fully and it was actually the right one. This was one of the first things I had tried too. Am now decoding the numbers. Thanks to everyone who gave me the encouragement.

    There are multiple ways to solve the numbers. The comment I made earlier in the thread was regarding the method you would need if you were presented the numbers without context. There is a simpler method if you make some assumptions. But that's no fun, now, is it?
