    I have a c4 question, anyone wonder why Mick's dog is named Petey and his friend is named Pete? Seems a bit sketchy to me....

    Funny you should mention that Scar. Raised the same point with a friend of mine just the other day. No idea of the implication though, but it has to be something.

    Riddles can also be holes.

    Riddles in the dark...Bilbo Baggins vs. Golum and the finding of the ring. Maybe we are looking for the one ring

    I was just reading about the Little Rascals dog Petey, it seems it had an obvious circle around his EYE.

    For anyone wondering if it is worth the irritation - as of March 2nd, 1:45 CDT, the invisible ink on the website still contains the C3 clue.

    Does anyone find these lines, referring to the map in the story, interesting?

    "Your father's notes, those numbers, I think every third one represents steps."
    "Steps? You mean like he counted them?"
    "Exactly."

    Is this a hint? Does this mean that once a sequence is determined the value should be multiplied by three? A letter like "M" equals 13 x 3 = 39. Of course 39 is too large a number so a 39 modulo 20 = 19 is necessary. The fact that the number 3 was chosen by the author is also interesting because it is a prime number resulting in an unambiguous value. This would make the substitution cipher referred to in the second clue a Multiplicative Cipher.

    The first is equal to the last. It has been the case in every chapter. Following this rule will give the substitution cipher needed.
