If we assume the ";" stands for a space, we can form two words out of that mess.

The only thing coherent along our lines of thought I got was... patient homeostasis



nyanyamaria - two of us got a capital "M" when translating - this may be important...or not...

Could it relate to pages in the book "The flowers of Evil"?

According to a Greek on FB the m is a M which is a beginning. And he's stumped too.

I actually googled those letters with reference to the bible (The most universal book - I'd thought I'd give it a go) I do get quotes referring to ressurrection to rule both the living and the dead world (for 14,9) and "he who believes in everlasting life" for 47, 57 (I know it's inverted but... closest thing I could find ) but drat that 1374, 310 - it's leaving me stumped!

I'm not trying to keep up. I'll just watch for summary posts. Speaking of, is that random/wishful thinking based on the way the games have been going? Or is there a reason to think this?


I'll try to find a response if it gets posted.

I think people want a richer game, something like RTR, dire grove or 13th skull

Sadly I don't think so...it wouldn't be a fair question if it did - no one has it...

Just trying to think of what "type" of puzzle this is.

Someone tried Long & Lat...it could be something like map coordinates - again...we don't all have the same map - so I don't think that's it - but something LIKE that...

The way the numbers are in pairs & separate lines...

Hrm...

NO, this IS something
Captin crown was a batty violent pirate, along with his crew.
So we're looking at either a town in Louisiana or England that is full of violent psychos (dalimar town? Dalivillie?)

Maybe not....What do ships do? They sink (in bad situations)
Going back to someone's guess that a town is underwater......grasping straws here.

I have no idea what the number clue means, but from Hondo's post I got the impression the clue would tell us who solved the clues. I stink at math problems, but the arrangement of the numbers is familiar to me too. Maybe we had a similar clue last year?

Zero knowledge of Greek. Will leave that one to smarter fishies than me!

5:30 a.m. comes early-off for the night. Happy sleuthing!

According to a response in FB the ; is a question mark. And person responding is Greek and said it doesn't mean anything in Greek. Also said the M is a capital and should be used at the beginning of a word.

I'm not sure that I should copy and paste his entire response.

Mimi, I don't think you need to copy and paste his response, you covered it admirably! (I'm following both places, here and there, and I saw it too.)

It could also be ship imitates sea town... which means something on Crown's ship would give us a clue!? Ahhhh my head!

I wouldn't c/p whole response - you got the key info...

Seems we're looking for a question with "M" as first letter of sentence...thanks!

I have no idea either with the number clue
There are 2 numbers in three rows, I'm thinking if it has anything to do with the 3 clues and answers??

9 I'm thinking MCF 9

I've been helping my daughter on her math homework, finding "least common denominator." Some math whiz want to try that? LOL
