    ... depends. If you used poem letters (which were obtained by using a Playfair cipher) and then shifted them, would you count that as 2 ciphers used?

    Yeah, I would consider that one cipher. Doing what you suggest doesn't take into account "differences" or "directions of spin" or TDYs or incrementing 5 or adding 1 or anything else. In order to work in some of that stuff you need at least 2 cipher steps. I can't make the clues work with anything fewer than 3.

    E=5
    10+5=5
    21-6=5
    10-6=5
    So 15=E
    And 15=E
    And 4=E

    Now that is some kind of new math.
