Spoiler for Second Key
Using the reverse of Seaton, I find that the playfair cipher gives:
TO KC SF LI NO
So onward to Kansas City, San Fran, Long Island, New Orleans.
EDIT: I kind of figure that one answer will typically favour 55.

Well, that was complicated.Spoiler for Purple!If you take the artists for all the records, their first letters spell out "Hope brings an answer." Using "hope" as the key for the Playfair cipher gives "eulbdnader," which is "red and blue" backwards.

The Witch mulled over Molly Mae's answer. TO followed by four pairs of letters could be made into a journey for any number of letter pairs, and the Humans had already won an amber using a similar strategy, and two would be far too generous.

Quote: "Does anybody say, 'I'm gonna think inside the box on this one?' Maybe they should! What if you're an ant living inside the cardboard walls of the box, and everything inside and outside those walls is 'outside the box,' because it's not part of the tunnels in the cardboard you've made into a home for your ant family?.
So I think the answer is 'an ant.'
Why so surprised? What, you thought I was gonna get it wrong?"
Background: Born to a Manhattan lawyer and an architect, Batsheva was raised in a family that, on the spectrum of Judaism from Orthodox to Reform, fell somewhere around 'Not Christian.' From these beginnings, she proceeded to go to college, change her major more often than her hat, and graduate with a 4.0 GPA and a "Bachelor's of Something or Other." In spite of her family's fears that she was too unfocused to make a living, she managed to prosper, surmounting countless barriers by ignoring them.
Some members of the Club think that she uses a constant stream of surreal patter to help herself think, and that what she says has nothing to do with the brilliant answers that generally follow. Others argue that she communicates her thoughts very clearly, but in the language of her home planet.
Several Club members had gathered around to hear Batsheva Ellis's latest riddle - an easy one, by her admission.
"I've got one. Flying takes a lot of energy! Right? It's a big drain of flying animals, like hummingbirds, bumblebees, and vampires."
This was entirely par for the course for an Ellis riddle.
"So, let's suppose that, in order to fly, a vampire needs to drink one person's blood every hour. And one hour after a person gets drunk from, they turn into a vampire themselves, with the same hourly blood-drinking requirement.'
"I don't think," said Kenichi, "that there would be any humans left."
"It's a really big city! Anyway, suppose a single vampire goes out hunting at 12 PM. What's the total number you have six hours later?"
