Nice, MiKi! That's what comes of being one minute late — someone answers the riddle first. Second one is confusing, though. Any thoughts?

2. ### Brian Dennis: Legacy

Analyze for poison.

3. ### The Witch's Epigraph Chapter 1: The Room of Six Locks

I think we're on the right track.

4. ### Am I wrong…2

I see... My mistake. Good one!

5. ### The Witch's Epigraph Chapter 1: The Room of Six Locks

Do vampires even fly?

Edit: Typo.

6. ### Am I wrong…2

You are wrong on the 5th step where you casually mention canceling the powers on both sides!

(-1/2)^2 = (+1/2)^2 does not yield -1/2 = +1/2

But, definitely a good one!

Can't you do it by taking the square root of both sides, which is a "legal" mathematical operation?"

7. ### The Witch's Epigraph Chapter 1: The Room of Six Locks

@ WoD No, we will never stop thinking!

8. ### The Witch's Epigraph Chapter 1: The Room of Six Locks

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.

I'm a bit confused, and I think you guys are too smart for me.

Why 55?

Found something!

If you use the word "trivial" as they key, the message decodes to "VA then NJ MI." Maybe the guests should visit these states?

Using the reverse of Seaton, I find that the playfair cipher gives:

EDIT: I kind of figure that one answer will typically favour 55.

These are both place names. Connection...?

10. ### Brian Dennis: Legacy

^^^ Definitely. My brevity is because I'm on an iPod.

^^^ Ok.

12. ### Brian Dennis: Legacy

@ Cav I meant, how long after the second murder?

13. ### The Witch's Epigraph Chapter 1: The Room of Six Locks

Maybe WoD is using "breaking up is hard to do" as a reference to chemical reactions, which involve the breaking up of molecules.

14. ### Brian Dennis: Legacy

Good point. @ Cav How long after the crime is this?

15. ### Brian Dennis: Legacy

^ I don't really think it's that surprising she knew her name. The murder would have been on the news, and it would have mentioned her name.

*continues to read five hundred pages of Mafia*

16. ### Brian Dennis: Legacy

Ask her if there's anybody else we can question.

*goes back to reading five hundred pages of Mafia*

17. ### The Witch's Epigraph Chapter 1: The Room of Six Locks

Turnabout is fairplay?

AT IF BS PG OT

(5 x 5, no Q)

Hardly an original cipher! This would be trivial for a group so skilled in cryptography.

Might this have something to do with the Playfair cipher? Probably not, but you never know...

18. ### Brian Dennis: Legacy

Maybe we should try and move a little quicker, if that's possible (post faster). That said, I have a cold so I might not be on as much.

Wheeeee!

19. ### The Witch's Epigraph Chapter 1: The Room of Six Locks

@ WoD why is it called "Meet the Pieces"?

20. ### Brian Dennis: Legacy

Umm. Given our profession, should there really be a choice?

Probably not.

21. ### The Witch's Epigraph Chapter 1: The Room of Six Locks

Wow, sea, and welcome to the Den! Hope you like it!

22. ### Brian Dennis: Legacy

I don't think there's anything else. Guys?

23. ### Brian Dennis: Legacy

@ Cav Will you give us a full description once we've solved this case?

24. ### Brian Dennis: Legacy

^ The "friendly janitor". We should question them before we accuse him.

25. ### The Witch's Epigraph Chapter 1: The Room of Six Locks

Yay, I'm now officially an "advanced member"!
