    Hey! I'm a Computer Science / Math Double Major @ UC Berkeley, and am interested in ML, algebra, music, and more. With regards to roleplay, I'm into anything as long as its a kick-ass adventure with lots of action and lots of story. I come with the seasons, but I think Valucre is a place where I'm going to settle and make a name for myself with regards to writing. Interweaving a net to trap your characters in some convoluted plot is just one of my specialties; however, I'm still trying to improve my narrative ability! Definitely interested in your feedback, and again, hope to see you on the threads ~!

    I know you guys probably hate me, but I would like to ask for your help:

    This was the message hidden in @OBELUS's latest message on

    https://www.valucre.com/profile/13564-obelus/?status=51939&type=status

    I have a feeling that this is some kind of digraph encryption scheme, i.e. a playfair, two-square, four-square cipher, or some other digraph encryption scheme.

    The image / image titles may also bear relevance, and thus I post that here as well:

    I would spend all night trying to break this if it weren't for classes tomorrow (damn you school!).

    Thus, I am turning to you for some help with this.

     

    In my arrogance, I thought I could do this alone, but time will not permit me to spend too much time. Thus, as a result, I came to the conclusion that the only way we can solve this mystery is by working together.

    I know a few secrets (some I am not going to divulge because they are out of the scope of the IC-portion of this ARG), and if you have any questions w.r.t. to things that I have found so far, just ask.

    @OBELUS, @Grand Mainframe,

    We -- as a community -- are going to figure this out.

    - Artificer.

      We don't hate you, Arty. We're just petty, is all.

      That said, I apologize. Spiting you was unkind and not at all the proper response. 

      Looking forward to working with you and the rest of the community. I'll throw my hat in the ring as soon as I'm able.

      Thanks for introducing me to the playfair cipher. Cool stuff.

      ...My original question.

      Your answer contrasts with the original sequence.

      Can a superior AI not crack such a simple cipher?

    MARGOT AMRANTE LOUVIER It was impossible to discern where all the wolves were, not in this storm. Battle-hardened eyes peered through the peerless torrent of ice and hail, keen on glimpsing the first adversary. The sheer number of howls were disorienting, and Louvier was wondering just how many there were currently around them. Cregsgy held the lantern up higher — as if more light would be able to illuminate anything past the flurry of snow. — That was she thought, until there was a flash of teeth. Suddenly — out of nowhere —, a wolf launched itself from the veil, jaws keen on closing on her throat. There was a flash of silver, and before she knew it, a dog-corpse lay split in two at her feet. "Pay attention!" Cregsgy snarled, brandishing bloodied sword in hand. "They're here — everyone!" ARON CREGGAN STONEHEART Sheer luck. The girl had sheer luck. The wolf which attacked her was impatient, and as known, impatience on the battlefield would be rewarded only with swift, decisive action. His sense for the wolves were sharpened after years at the Cobranian Walls. Their tactics were still the same. "Keep an eye on the rear flanks!" he commanded. If they were the same as before, they would go for the rear next — attack the stragglers. Sword in one hand, he unclipped the battleaxe on his back. What warrior goes into battle without all weapons drawn? WHITE WOLVES (γ.II & γ.III) The humans had fell one brother, but that would not stop the pack. He and the first four were closing in on the group from the periphery, circling in. It was a monochromatic world, out there in the blizzard, painted in dark hues of gray and black, but the human's pitiful lights were like a beacon — a target. This was the wolves' territory, and they knew the storm better than most. They were built specifically for this environment. He and another skulked outside on the periphery of the lantern-light, prowling towards the back of the group. Those at the front were likely focused only on the front. They had no idea what was coming from behind. WHITE WOLF (γ.IV) The scent of blood brought this one's fury to a rise. How dare they the dwarf lay their blade upon his brother? The man would pay with his life. Zig-zagging back and forth, he was one of the swiftest of the litter. He charged from toward the front-line, eyes set on the man who had just slain his kin. He would have that man's neck. WHITE WOLF (β.I) Far back, the beta wolf waited, laying low and silent far from the first four who dove in without hesitation. He would watch. He would wait, amber eyes locked on the individuals from a distance. He would not attack, but he would be prepared. There were more waiting in the wastes near him... if one so foolish were to split off from the group in pursuit of him, well, they would be surprised indeed. The wolf would not let anything happen to the commander further back. He had a hunt to coordinate, and these adventurers would fall as the rest who preceded them had.
