Thanks for the hints, I finally deciphered the clue - now to figure out what it means.

2. Hi, Walt. I'm stuck deciphering this clue. Could you tell me if rotate cipher is involved? Thanks, Oromis.

3. Your last keys must be found with logic. One key for chapter one the Q, then two in chapter two J and Q so I'm guessing if you find a sequence of 17 keys for chapter 3, go for it.
This reasoning should make chapter 12 last for decades!

4. Your next clue for Chapter 3:
The end is also the beginning.

Regarding the email yesterday talking about the solution for chapter 2, so the J and Q keys werent actually found in the womens chapter? but instead logically deduced from the clues provided?

so essentially the solution was 10-8 and then 2?

We saw this same clue last chapter and it was supposed to mean that there were two sets of 10 keys in the solution. That was not the case with there being 10 keys, then 8 and 2 missing but by reason of deduction my dear Watson, the last 2 of JQ were put on the end of sequence.

It is nice to see that the facebook page is well maintained.

Don't even try to say that there is something wrong in that treasure hunt because your post will not stay

8. Based off of the solutions to the first two chapters, we are looking for 18 keys. One will be missing and the last two will be JQ. This may continue in this pattern for the rest of the chapters. Whatever the missing key(scratched out key for Doc's sake) is, it will be added on at the end to the known keys. So if the missing key for chapter 3 is "A", then chapter 4 will start with keys 18,19 and 20 as "AJQ".
If this is true, then we already know what the last 2 keys are.

The sequences for the first two chapters both end with BJQ.

So Ron provided and explanation for the Ch2 solution regarding the missing J and Q? If so, can someone point me to where I can find it? The only things I gotten from Ron lately are my rejection emails and a Happy Holidays newsletter.
