I believe so (correct me if I was wrong, pls). Here is how I know it.
When I figure out the way they encrypt the code, I simply generate a test message by myself and use Cap-sensitive password, then use the other way to decrypt, and, failed.
Yes, cryptobin passwords are case sensitive.
Ding! Very cool puzzle :)
onto step 3. I still have no idea what word 2 is supposed to be, but I brute forced a bit with some logical guesses.
Still lost on the crossword am I minusing letters because nothing fits?
I'm stuck on the very last step. Found the pattern, but not quite sure what to do with it.
Man, I so thought I was on to something on step 3. But that wasn't it
I have tried a couple ways of divining (haha) a pattern here but have come up blank both
So, what did Marina say?
27 is too long for a passcode, but any logical grouping makes it too short. And I haven't been able to find 13ar yet.
something else for sure is going on here. im currently thinking of this in an Aleister Crowley way
that didnt immediately get me anywhere, although there's definitely a way to get a binary out of it, its a very short one
Nothing is making sense for the second step I got to a crossword with words that don't fit any way
Obviously I'm missing something as I've read the wikipedia and input everything I could see
The first step I got in just a few minutes but I have since been stuck
Having trouble figuring out the last step. Can’t figure out a working method to convert it to get the passcode. Can’t see anything for 13ar that makes sense either.
I was immediately tantalized by what looked like a very good starting point from hex ascii, but that doesn't seem to pan out either
I've been in the Cryptobin for an hour and I don't get anything in the password, some hint?
Think about the clues in the Original Post.
I wasted an hour before discovering i had to refresh the crypto page for another attempt, and i had it at the beginning. I don't use chrome.
Trying to find out how to have 13AR in 3rd step... Does anyone has found something?
I think by now everyone knows that suffix and its assumed and therefore not part of the solve...
Nothing new. I thought the genders of the gods might be a clue.
It has always been part of the solution anyways, it would be inconsistent to leave it out now. (And would make it harder to solve)
How is everyone getting past the crossword?
That one was tough.... Brought me out of decoding retirement !!
Yeah I agree but in this case they actually give it to you in plaintext along with the format. And although it would be a nice check to confirm you are on the right path, the solve is clean and you will know right away if you have it.
So any hints on the crossword...?
