Decoded MessageEdit

This message was double encrypted. First, a Vigenère cipher was used. The keyword for this message was obtained from the passage CXXX of "The Art of Worldly Wisdom", by Balthasar Gracian. The text was found from cxxx.docx from the ON.rar drop, which actually contained the passage XCIX (XRAY CHARLIE INDIA XRAY). After the BRAVO decryption, the message contained groups of three letters, which had to be decoded using the code book compiled from the 5 different *.rar file drops. After decoding, the message reads:

CHARLIE ONE UMBRA
CHARLIE ONE UMBRA

XRAY CHARLIE INDIA XRAY BRAVO

SHIVA STIR[s] HIS MESSAGE PLANT FIRM IN THE HEAD OF MILITARY MAN
WILL YOU PANIC WHEN YOUR GOD SPEAK[s]
HUMAN MEAT EVER TASTE SO SWEET
YOU WILL DETERMINE THE PATH OF THIS WORLD
LOOK OUTSIDE TSUJI
FIND THEIR SPOT
FIND THE CONNECTION, THE SECRET IN THE NUMBER
SIFT STAND BY FOR ENEMY TRAFFIC
THEY GROW RESTLESS
OUR WIND SCREAM[s] AGAIN

CHARLIE ONE UMBRA
CHARLIE ONE UMBRA
CHARLIE ONE UMBRA

NotesEdit

  • The full key is: Things do not pass for what they are but for what they seem. To be of use and to know how to show yourself of use, is to be twice as useful. What is not seen is as if it was not. Even the Right does not receive proper consideration if it does not seem right. The observant are far fewer in number than those who are deceived by appearances. Deceit rules the roast, and things are judged by their jackets, and many things are other than they seem. A good exterior is the best recommendation of the inner perfection.
  • The letters between square brackets were added in order for the message to make sense. This was due to the limit of words available in the codebook.
