Nicely solved, Dej Mar. The hardest part about setting these kinds of puzzles is tempering the difficulty. Thought this could be quite easy for those experienced in these types, especially in this format. Was hoping it might spur some interest in those less familiar. But hey, put it out there to be solved which you did post-haste. Hope you enjoyed.

I did enjoy it. You did a nice job for an amateur. I didn't expect one of a calibur of Emily Cox, Henry Ravthon or my favorite Richard Maltby, Jr.. Still, it was nicely done.
