    Is there a particular reason why the clue says "hit the mist?" Do I need a bat? Or a watch to make sure I hit it "by the time?" Seriously, I need some clarity, it's been a long week.

    I think with this puzzle a bat will always come in handy lol.

    Don't take the clue so literally.if u get stuck apply bat to head with sufficient force
    For an additional clue.

    I need to add today's clue to the Facebook clues. Did you get, 'By the time you hit the mist, your alpha key is finished'?

    Using the three keys or some other process to generate a sequence would make sense, especially if, as implied by the rules, the maps have been solvable from day one, without the need for additional clues. It would also make sense that the same or similar process might be used for each chapter, thus the need for having a disqualification clause if a winner discloses a winning sequence.

    Yes, that is the same clue I got.

    Yeah, stop the whining Vincent. There is zero evidence that what you think the first 10 keys are is correct.

    In fact, everything that I'm seeing indicates that things are quite a bit more involved than the solution you have been proposing.

    Yeah, If people did not get so worked up about the outcome and just had fun with it.... I can think of worse things to do with my time!

    Does today's clue mean the scratched out key is the alpha key?

    Default An idea

    My latest theory ........

    "At ten o'clock in the morning"......"just before standing up he quickly."

    Alpha has 6 words...........................omega has six words.

    Alpha = Omega

    Any thoughts? Care to agree or disagree ? Anyway, this lead to my first guess at the sequence in a long time.

    It's an 'alpha' key: it's the first of the keys.

    What do we know about 'alpha'?

    From the Facebook clue: A = omega. Alpha = omega.

    This first key is the Omega key.

    What else do you know about 'first keys'? From the Golden Eagle Eye: A TEN.

    This is the reason the author chose to encode the second part as a Caesar shift of SIX. IS X. The key that is being specifically referenced is the 'X' key--the omega key.

    The clue is a compilation of TWO COMPLETE ALPHA-BETS, and that's a hint for what I think has to happen in the actual solution mechanism--and that will comprise two of the three keys.

    Guys, MIST is M IS T, or 13 = T.

    13 is fairly significant in this puzzle as is TEA. What is before 'U'?

    I don't know if you understood what I did with the three keys, but it generates a rearranged alphabet series that includes 'I LOST X.'

    Happily (and frustratingly because I can't complete the solution), the 13th letter of that series is 'T'

    Will continue to ponder,

    Doc

    So Doc, does that mean you agree or disagree with me?
