sequence = series of consecutive numbers.

If the beginning of the sequence is 7 THEN 5 and the rest of the sequence must contain 7, 3, 4, 6, 8, and 9 after that - where is the Sudoku do you find that series of numbers?

Thanks boatdaddy! I thought that 7 THEN 5 might be the way but I didn't think to tilt my head to the side.

Next up the dreaded number sequences which you all seemed to have so much fun with!

fibonacci?
As I have no more additional idea how to ascertain the password without decoding the numbers I started working on these numbers, but without any results (except these sleepless nights).
Is there anyone outside in this universe who can tell me if I have to use a Fibonacci sequence for solving this puzzle?

No, you do not need to use the Fibonacci sequence.

numbers
After filling endless spreadsheets with numbers, symbols and letters I am totally lost. I have also hoped to find some answers here and have searched this forum for readable hints, but all I know now is: I need help! :(

Given what you've found so far in this chapter, do you know what the numbers "should" translate to?

I think that I've already tried all variations of the following table (with or without text, backwards, forwards, with one " and with two "" ...). Furthermore I continued with the text. I've built sums and differences of the numbers....

I'm in the same spot. I've read all the posts here and tried every which way to decode the numbers but can't seem to crack

So we have ciphertext consisting of numbers, and the plaintext "answer" consisting of letters (ignore the table). We don't know many ciphers that translate letters <-> numbers, so my hint is: there's a preliminary step to do before figuring out which cipher was used

thanks for the hint Merelyviral, but I can't seem to get to next step. I've tried some things after your post but I'm still in the dark.
