# Marathon (mini) puzzles (trapped in a dungeon)

## Question

I am unsure what one would call this kind of meta puzzle in English but essentially this thread will contain a progression of mini puzzles centered around a protagonist (you) attempting to escape a dungeon. A new question will emerge, thus furthering the story, with a satisfying resolution to the current dilemna.  ...enjoy!

You awake to find that you are trapped in a dungeon.  Chained to a wall, you see a guard in the corner.  The guard approaches you.  He takes a piece of chalk from his pocket and draws the Roman numeral for 9 on the wall next to you.  He uncuffs your left wrist and hands you the chalk.  "If you want food and drink, make this 9 a 6 adding only one line."  At the mention of food, your belly churns and squeezes, "how long has it been since i've eaten?", you ask yourself.  The guard stares at you with a foolish grin...

Angrily the guard walks to a table and shoves a black flask into your hand, "Drink". Not sure what else to do, you drink the foul smelling fluid. Your insides burn and twist in agony. You lose consciousness...

Sometime later, you awake. Your stomach, no longer empty, gives you some respite but your muscles are terribly sore. For the first time you take stock of the room.  Along the far wall. You see a burning fire pit with a long dirty wooden table in front of it. On the other two walls are two sleeping prisoners just like yourself.  Upon the three of each of you is a bright yellow tunic, a silly thing you believe since the dark room makes the color virtually pointless. You scratch your face to satisfy an itch, which brings you a wonderful conclusion...your left arm is still free.  You attempt to pull your right arm free but it is too tight. You look at the device holding your hand and realize that this shackle is different than the one the guard unlocked. It has a computer interface (command prompt) on it with a keypad for its user.  On the opposite side of the shackle, you notice that someone etched a note...the password is utopia...

Hey, VI or 6 is SEX in Latin, not SIX! The guard obviously had another purpose in mind!

....... Ok, I would never have thought about drawing an S, and I confess I'm a sore loser...

The computer activates. Thousands of ones and Zero's run across the screen. After what seems like five minutes, something else comes on the screen:

The computer makes an affirmative noise.  The chain is released from the device but remained attached to your arm. You go to pull it off, the machine matched your force by clamping equally hard into your arm.  You stop tugging on the machine and look at the interface.  Looking at the screen you see the phrase, "not yet".

One of the two men on the oposite walls, coughs. You remember, your wits returning, that you are not alone. Looking at the two men, they stare upon you, pale and nervous.  You take a step towards them, when the machine vibrates.  You look at it and see...

These men are evil. One is more evil than the other.  You should punish them. The brorhers are involved in a murder.  Though it was known that one of them committed the crime, neither could be convicted.

You have two choices:

1. Figure out why they couldnt be covicted

2. Have one confess for the murder.

Knowing that the brothers would lie, what will you do?
