Decoded MessageEdit

This message was double encrypted. First, a Vigenère cipher was used. The keyword for this message was a running key with thext from The Cave found in the ON.rar drop. After the BRAVO decryption, the message contained groups of three letters and numbers above 25, which had to be decoded using the code book compiled from the 5 different *.rar file drops as well as the annex. After decoding, the message reads:

CHARLIE ONE UMBRA

NotesEdit

  • The keyword was: NEXT THEN TAKE THE FOLLOWING PARABLE OF EDUCATION AND IGNORANCE AS A PICTURE OF THE CONDITION OF OUR NATURE IMAGINE MANKIND AS DWELLING IN AN UNDERGROUND CAVE WITH A LONG ENTRANCE OPEN
  • The last line is a reference to pandora's box. After all the evil in the world escaped, hope was left at the bottom of the box (or jar, in the original greek).[citation needed]
