Secrecy by Tøm

November 25th, 2007 6:13 AM

INSTRUCTIONS: Create a secret code. Enemy agents are everywhere and secrecy could be necessary in any situation; the use of your code shouldn't require the presence of a computer.


Write your own encoded secret rules for your group. Anyone of the same group who mails you must be given the translation and/or a way of reading the ciphertext.

If another group deciphers your secret rules, you lose.

Work this one out!

Any BARTpa can have the key, anyone else can have it for a vote.

Clearly, my patience for code cracking is running even lower than usual.

I give up. Gimme the key!

Loki and Ben, I've sent you the key to crack this code.

Thanks. (Damn, did I really not figure that out on my own? Shame on me. Shame, I say.)

Not only did I not guess the encoding scheme. . . I wasn't even smart enough to realize you'd uploaded the thing as plain text. Just wasted several minutes typing the damn thing by hand and writing a comment asking why you'd only given it to us as an image. Ah well. It's been a mighty long week.
