Yeah sort of. My earlier post explained them better...more like gates to different areas. I did go and find my copy of the first novel in the series. The way the gates opened was through a very thick fog or mist that some people called the Shadow.

Curiouser and curiouser

dzzzy, could you pm me please, where you found the cryptogramm solver? l was desperately looking for one, but got nothing useful.

The limits make more sense for me as the digits.

it would appear that a cipher - if thats what it is is pretty hard to break without a KEY.

Anyone have a spare SKELETON KEY?

My doc told me to relax and the best way for me is to dive into a new game. Maybe you all should take a breather and find a game to relax(or energize) the brain for a while?

If you have an iOS device, I’d highly recommend checking out our newest release, Plunder. I knew Plunder was in the pipeline, but it wasn’t until after Hondo had mentioned something that I remembered it was coming out this week. We know many of you have been waiting for this one, and from what I am hearing, it was definitely worth the wait.

I think I’m going to call it a day; enjoy some plunder and then get some rest. I want to make sure I get over whatever it is I’ve come down with before the holidays arrive.

Picman


Did anyone else happen to notice that Picman didn't capitalize "plunder" in his last paragraph? So could he really be saying to enjoy some of what has been taken by force or stolen?

Or was he just tired and forgot to hit the shift key?

Methinks it is deliberate....and that there is a reason that the last "plunder" wasn't capitalized....

I've got PROTECT YOUR DIGITS

K is the 11th letter of the alphabet (A=1) P is the 11th letter working from Z (Z=1)

What could this mean?

Digits: Fingers & toes or Numbers?

Now, l just know one thing for sure!

lt´s again past 2 am and l will go and catch dreams of letters and numbers and any cryptograms or Azerbaijan for some hours.
The portal to dreamland is open. So, don´t expect me back before tomorrow, or better later this day.

lf l´m not back in time, please send me a MD, or rescue me yourself.
Thanks and good night!

Another thought: Plunder was mentioned 3x and there are 7 letters in plunder. 7 x 3 = 21. "For some it is a fortnight", which is the 21st. So...could the two clues be related? And could they be emphasizing "two weeks/fortnight" and the number 21 for a different reason?

Aso got:

Charmer oath luxury

For Hondo's puzzle

All our answers make some sense - but I'm not getting an "Aha!!" from any darn it! It's like one or two words from each option are great - but they all seem to fall juuuust short of making sense.

And to show I'm REALLY getting punchy we have:

Klingon vial repent

Well - we DID inquire about the next clue being in Klingon

However, I'm pret-ty sure this is just one...crazy...coincidence!!!

dzzzy - I fear our fellow fishies are fiercely frustrated!

We may need another Hondo hint on this one...
