“The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents.” You still(!) haven’t gotten the answer the code despite all my efforts at giving multiple people hints. *Gets increasingly frustrated with my attempts yesterday as I give out the same hint repeatedly in the text adventure to different people in more and more obvious fashion so they can solve this code. Is both heartened and crushed to see them get this close (in theme if not execution) but not quite grasp it in the end*. I also learned that you are clearly not all the interested in math or even investigating to see if it means something even if you get tantalizingly close to the answer.
Oh well, can’t win them all. If you can’t solve that first code though, you’re unlikely to be able to solve any of these. Or maybe you’ll solve them and be inspired to go solve that one. A man can dream. At least now you should hopefully be able to focus on this thread and not largely on the QTs as the text adventure has come to a close. Maybe start analyzing some behavior or better yet start putting together these clues and separating the wheat from the chaff.
*A mysterious piece of paper is posted on the front door in the lobby* It reads:
“Even though you couldn’t decode the last, here are a big chunk of the clues and passwords you will need:

Doesn’t my generosity fill your heart with cheer? Now on to the scores. After the deaths of Smapti and Hols were confirmed yesterday by your intrepid exploration, you went and killed your third innocent in Owen. While you were all distracted with self pity, you didn’t even notice April Ludgate-Karate-Dwyer being dragged away kicking in screaming in agony to be torn to bits. So I guess that makes it seven dead townies to zero dead people who actually deserve it.
By God, that’s Smapti’s music.
*A shambling corpse with two arms awkwardly sewed back on wrong, one eye hanging out of its head, and a body still partially made of stone bursts in through the doorway. The survivors stare slack jawed as the horrific sight of their former friend shuffles in. Captain Video runs into the room.*
“Look everyone, I found Smapti, right as rain” *Three fingers fall off the one hand* “Now let’s get back to the festivities” *Some of the stone flakes off to the ground and the eye pops out completely*
Looks of terror leave the face of no one aside from Lovely Bones who approaches Smapti with confidence.
“See? He was fine after all” were Bones’ last words before she was horrifically and brutally mauled to death by the beast.
Good God almighty they killed her. As God as my witness, she is broken in half. Just as the panic truly sets in, the crowd sees a figure clad in black leather ramp his motorcycle into room.
“Ayo, eat lead dead man”
Nothing like a quick shotgun blast to the head at point blank range to turn Undead Smapti’s head into a million pieces.
“Guess he didn’t see that coming” quips Colonel Mustard who has now joined the game. Lovely Bones is no more.
