    Killerkel,

    Translate all the numbers. The password kinda sticks out in the middle.

    Hi,

    Can you tell me what the cipher type is for chapter 11 text(numbers)?

    thanks,
    Lauren

    Actually the name of the poet is pretty easy to guess - look at the number of letters needed to spell his last name. I had to work this one backwards - found the poet, then found his poem and uncoded the code to find the password.

    Default Ch11 Q8

    So question 8 puzzles me a bit. I know there are two different ciphers here, and I have recovered the plaintext for both. One plaintext provides the question for an answer to be entered in the log book. The other one is the one that puzzles me. Even though I was able to crack it and recover a key, there were so many mistakes in the text that it makes me wonder if it's not as simple as I think.

    Thoughts?

    we shouldn't be posting answers... and, there's "another" way to solve Q8. I figured all the mistakes were due to it being a variant of the cipher I used. It could be a red herring too. I was going to look into it further but haven't had the chance (just like the many other weird things I've found in the book!), maybe all the mistakes lead to a clue that's even more hidden!

    It seems there are many red-herrings, or at least I haven't figured out how to use them yet.

    P.S. I would reply to you PM, but I have not reached my 10 posts as of yet. I will reply when I do.

    Uncool, sorry my first treasure hunt...

    I need a little help with Ch10/Q1: I have the poet, I have the poem, I know the numbers showing the password, but I m not sure about the cipher (playfair or vignere ?) and the passphrase or keyword...Thanks and greetings from Austria!
