Household Artifacts and Other Musings 15



A new blog post from Elliott Graves, he apparently works on the Ajira ticket desk !

He has found some bits of paper with a coded message and convieniently enough some information that may be a key to the code. However the key seems to be faulty so he needs help in interpreting it.

I have left a message on the blog post to say we can help, so get those brains working.



Update dedioste has commented to say that the code looks like a reverse alphabet code, however there are still some more letters that appear to be wrong. The key below lists the coded glyphs with the reverse alphabet equivalent.


Update 2 - Using the reverse key above The translation of the passage seems to be -

Click here to see the translation.

NATHANIAL, fatheher meant a great deal to us and we are honored you wish to follow in his footsteps. When Adomis told me what you could do, I knew you were a perfect candidate.

However the road ahead is long. You maybe a good person in my eyes but Jacob is much harder to please. Initiation into our ----- order is an old and sacred process and not the easiest thing to endure.

Your first goal is to find the Phoenix. He will ask you to recite Apollo’s creed and if you answer correctly he will give you a test. Thas ----- test is painful and deeply personal, so be prepared. This is where most peopl fail.

Everything from then on will have to remain a secret. I wish you luck and hope to count you among our number soon.”

This looks double coded to me, once we translate the heiroglyphs to letters we will have to decode the letters as well.

Why? it's confirmed fake

Zort70 said...

Ciara, if it is fake it is something fun to do.

The first sentence in the code seems to be

UZGSVSVI NUZMG ZTIVZG WVZOGL FH, ZMW DV ZIV SLMLIVW BLF DRHS GL ULOOLD RM SRH ULLGHVKH.

Although I'm not sure about the W's or Q's which are similar in the code key.

the secondary code shoul de a simple inverted alphabet.
the first sentence reads like this:
YOJR_FATHEHR_MEANT;
A_XREAT_DEAL_TO_JS;
AND_WE_ARE_HONORED:
YOJ_CISH_TO_FOLLOW;
IN_HIS_FOOTSEPS_._ WHAT;
ZWLNRH_TOLD_ME_WHAT;
YOJ_COJLD_DO_I_KNEW;
YOJ_WERE A PERFECT;
CANDIDATE_._:

Somethign should be fixed, but it has a meaning.

dedioste, thanks for that it looks good.

dedioste said...

Second paragrapgh
HOWEVER_,_THE_ROAD:
AHEAD_IS_LON_X.YOJ;
MAYBE_A_XOOD_PERSON;
IN_MY_EYES_,_BJT_JACOB;
IS_MJCH_HARDER_TO_PLE_-_;
ASE_._INITIATION_INTO_OJR;
###_ORRER_IS_AN_OLD_ANJ;
SACRED_PDOCESS_,_AND_NOT;
THE_EASIEST_THINX;
TO_EN_DJRE_._;

i think the errors come from the hierogliphic to letter transofrmation.

Zort70 said...

I've created a reverse alphabet key, I'll update the main page with it.

Zort70 said...

I had some mistakes in my original transcribing of the letters, yusing the reverse key the translation is now on the main post. It is a hidden link so if you still want to solve it for yourselves you can do.

I don't know who is doing this but they are good.
They throw in enough key words and Lost references and names. Like good person, candidate, Apollo.

It's a mixture of past ARGs (that were real) and new things along with the key words to make you wonder if it's real or not.

And as I said before whether it's real or not doesn't really matter as long as you don't get to caught up believing it's real. So you don't get disappointed when/if it turns out not to be.

Right now it's just something fun to do and it passes time. But I'm thinking it probably is fake. But it's a pretty good fake. And I like it.

BTW Love you avi zort!

dedioste said...

I quote you sayid'sgirl.
At the moment it's just something funny to do, it is something quite well made, who cares if it is canon or not?

Zort70 said...

Thank's Sayid'sgirl, I thought I'd make it relevant to my id for once !

Zort70 said...

Yes it is definitely well thought out, although the breakneck speed may be too much for some to handle.

The only oddity in my eye is the 27project.org website which seems oddly removed from the twitter / youtube (web 2.0) type of updates.
