2 Part Cipher + Word Riddle

Question

Posted · Report post

The following is encoded twice using two different ciphers. The first is a common cipher, the second is a bit harder. Once decoded, you will have to solve the actual riddle!

Note: I removed punctuation and new lines for the purpose of encoding the cipher. It's still readable with out it, but I for newlines I put an extra space.

Is the first cipher that one where the value of each letter is shifted down one place? (For example a=b, b=c, c=d, etc.)

Wait. Sorry, I made a mistake. The more complicated cipher is the outer layer, the easy one is the inner layer. In other words, the plaintext was encrypted first with a simple cipher, then the more complicated one. So you have to get that one first... Good luck!

The outer cipher is a type of transposition cipher.

Nope... more complicated than that.

The outer cipher is called R _ _ L _ E _ _ E
