    I actually started on chapter 3 quite some time ago, and if you thought chapter 2 was confusing, I think you'll find that this one is more of the same in terms of confusion. I think most of us at least got the whole "go down in a straight line" thing pretty quickly, mainly from Chip's description of the letters going down the rock. The rotating bird (I think) hinted at "rotating the book" to read sideways too.

    I don't see any obvious starting points for chapter 3. I've got a couple of ideas about WHERE in the text to look, but no idea on cipher or even precisely where to start extraction. No idea on any solid keys to test any ideas either. No clue if one cipher or more than one cipher is used.

    Hopefully chapter 2's solution will help shed some light on how to decipher this stuff, otherwise we're looking at yet another 50 extra-clue experience ahead of us.

    Anyway, good luck all.
    I wonder if the ciphers we used is this chapter are the only ones we have to use in trying to figure out the final answer. Who knows?

    Based on the answer to chapter two you have a better chance at guessing the exact population of China at any given time than solving chapter three.

    Hi all,

    I've read everything being posted with respect to the Chapter 2 solution and I'm disenchanted but still willing to give this a shot. in fairness to Ron, it is not supposed to be easy, but in fairness to the hunters, it is supposed to be reasonable enough to have a body of participants willing to continue for another 6+ years until the book is solved. Enough said and let's find the 3rd eagle.

    But, allow me to be cynical for a second... "Secantroam" anagrams to:

    ORNATE SCAM

    Goodnight all

    If he's imparting the same sort of information for Chapter 3 as he did in the earliest stages of the previous 2 chapters, I would consider

    SCENT AROMA

    First = Last
