    Default Numbers the fairy points to

    Maybe I am way off, but I haven't even seen anyone throw around this idea. On the first two white pages of this book, there is a fairy on the left page pointing to a set of numbers.
    6 5 14 4 13 7 8 2 3 15 9 10 1 12 11

    maybe this is something very simple but I have not been able to come up with anything. Please tell me what ya think

    Default FENIX'S CIPHER

    Fenix,

    Re: Your Cipher Signature

    There is no path through the spider border - the elements are coupled, every other one.

    Should I explore grouping the elements this way? Have you discovered something?

    In case anyone is curious, Fenix's signature is a Polybius cipher (take the numbers in pairs. Load the Key table starting with F-E-N-I-X in the first row, then the rest as normal. Look-up letters as row-col. Answer is:

    FIND THE PATH THROUGH THE SPIDER BORDER

    Any comments Fenix????

    I think the spider border is a type of Beale Cipher.

    A few things, and some hunches. For example: there are no repeats in the border symbols, and no obvious ways to interpret the symbols that result in 16 to 24ish permutations (that I see anyway). So simple substitution ciphers are less likely. Since the symbol set is so large, one tends to think of ciphers with a large key set - like book ciphers, or grid ciphers perhaps.

    We would need a logical way to interpret the symbols as references into a body of text, and a logical indicator of where to start. The octagon symbol on the backs of the spiders matches one under the "Z" at the beginning of one of the chapters - this might fit into the concept.

    Or might not.

    I think it is simple.... 15 letters in the title of the book. put hem in this order and they spell SAVE OUR TREES ART. Figuring that out is the question. I entered this into google and got a SAVE YOUR TREES by Art Hardin. Interesting huh?
