    Don't make this so difficult, but, you will have to work harder and longer to be victorious.

    It is hard to not make this difficult if you try to combine all the clues. Good luck to all, I am guessing this will be the last chapter.

    I have some ideas, but the clues have so many hinted ciphers. It can't be some combination of ciphers, as that would be too hard. Yet, the clues seem to keep hinting that way? Some of the clues contradict each other as well. It's probably not hard, but a few red herrings thrown in have made it hard.

    Yet another clue that conflicts with previous clues.

    "Boil it all down" conflicts directly with "Hot tempered... answer is not"

    All of the poem clues conflict directly with "Zantippe... answer is not"

    "Hot tempered... answer is not" conflicts with the "direction of spin", leading me to believe that the clue setters don't actually know which direction Florida hurricanes spin.

    Sigh.

    The clues for this chapter have caused mass confusion. They hint at doing more than one cipher or shift, yet we are told not to make this difficult. In all the previous chapters we did just one.
    Victorious people(winners) need to carry on(work harder).

    Pretty sure I worked out the starting points long ago... but can't get "16" to help me, and the number of permutations of ciphers is extensive.

    I also think I know where to look. Just no idea what to do with it! And that is after a year and a half of clues.
    He really needs to speed this up. It started in 2010 and here we are 7 years later and only five chapters won.

    So many details...

    I think I understand the first bunch of steps. But what exactly is the last step? What are you supposed to do with the "modified result" ?

    What is the special 25? I have two options, both seem to have multiple clues pointing at them. And then, which of the 26 letters is ignored? The chapter cipher / today clues imply one, order that they always have been implies another, eye of the storm implies another, etc etc.

    Finally some of these clues are making sense to me. I turned my solution into a modified acrostic, but in the end my solution may be more clever than the actual solution.

    Anyone think that more than one cipher is used? I'm thinking no, but I'm interested in what the rest of you think.
    That seems too hard, and we shouldn't make this so difficult? Yet the clues seem to suggest 3 ciphers more than the rest (repeat clues).
