    For every chapter, the first clue seems to be the most informative. So for this chapter, the number 5 is very important.

    If it's under A throw it away. Don't use anything zero or less.
    If it's over Z use it.
    OK?
    So then after letter Z, we start over with A again.

    if it is less than zero then it implies a shift left.
    If you have a shift left why are you getting values over Z?
    And if it is a cipher which is shifting shifts, why is it so inconsistent that negative values are ignored but high values arent? It is not even symmetric.

    Have given up my quests for later chapters. Rapidly losing confidence that rational solutions exist.

    one thing that caught my attention is that he used "under" instead of less than, while also using "greater than".

    Two ciphers is my guess.

    And if you kill less than 1 and keep greater than 26, what do you do with 21 to 26?

    Not much discussion on the recent clues. I wonder why there have been no key placement clues for this chapter.

    Sounds like some questers are closing in on a solution.

    Posted on FB: "Just a note of encouragement from our judges. In case you're wondering if the clues in this chapter are working, I'd like to confirm that a number of questors have submitted a substantial portion of the Chapter 5 solution correctly. Keep on submitting your solutions!!"

    That might prove that the chapters can be solved without any extra clues, it just takes a lot of trial and error.
