[SPOILERS] ((Delta)) Code-Breaking/Lore Theorizing

Post by Padlock on Sat Sep 09, 2017 9:37 pm

Code #1:
Messaged to Unum_Relicuum on page 99 by ((Delta)):

((Delta)) wrote:57 6b 64 77 20 6c 76 20 71 72 77 20 67 68 64 67 20 7a 6b 6c 66 6b 20 66 64 71 20 68 77 68 75 71 64 6f 20 6f 6c 68 2c
Code #1 Solution:
This code has been solved. ((Delta))'s message was encoded both in hexadecimal and a Cesar cipher, the message reads: "That is not dead which can eternal lie," a partial quote from H.P. Lovecraft's Necronomicon. The second half of the quote is: "and with strange aeons even death may die."

Code #2:

[3]3[1]1[1]1[1]1[1]3[1]3[3]1[3]7.
Code #2 Solution:
This code has been solved. This code is a numerical translation of Morse code that reads: "I have no home to return to and no destination awaiting me, but with all of time both ahead and behind me my thoughts my thinking of them" (thanks to FallenLeaves for cracking this code!). This isn't a quote from anything, so it can be assumed that this is ((Delta)) speaking, about some form of existential existence.

Code #3:
Posted in The Tea Room by ((Delta)):

((Delta)) wrote:[3]1[1]3[3]1[3]1[3]3[1]1[3]1[3]7[1]1[1]7[1]1[3]3[3]1[3]7
[3]1[1]1[1]1[1]3[1]3[3]1[1]1[3]1[1]3[3]1[3]1[3]3[3]1[3]3[1]7[3]1[1]1[1]3[1]3[1]1[3]3[3]3[1]1[1]1[1]1[1]7

[3]1[3]1[3]3[1]1[1]1[3]1[1]7[1]1[3]1[3]3[3]1[3]1[3]3[1]1[3]1[1]3[1]1[3]1[1]1[1]3[3]1[1]1[1]3[1]1[1]1[1]7
Code #3 Solution:
This code has been solved. This code is a numerical translation of Morse code that reads: "Now I am become death the destroyer of worlds" (thanks to FallenLeaves for cracking this code!). This is a quote from the Hindu text the "Bhagavad Gita" and also the words thought by J. Robert Oppenheimer (often accredited as the father of the atomic bomb) upon seeing the atomic 's success.

Additional/Incomplete Stuff:
Key Given to Arbiter by ((Delta)):
8.3.7. This key was included with the message "This key's lock is yet to come... besides "Half a key can't open much."" The meaning of this message is still unknown.
Key given to FallenLeaves by ((Delta)):
9. 12. 10. This key was included with the message "may only be half a key, but if you put your halves together you get 0." It is assumed that this is referring to the "half a key" message sent to Arbiter, but the "put your halves together you get 0" part might imply that combining these would result in nothing, or may be referring to something else.
Additional FallenLeaves code:
52 53 41 was included with the key above in the same message. When put through a hexadecimal translator it results in "RSA" and if that is placed in a Cesar cipher translator it results in "OPX". The meaning of this is unknown.

Lore & Theories:
A.D.D.R. Online:
For those of you who don't know: ((Delta)) has created a new interactive post in the fan-works section called "A.D.D.R. Online" (adjunct department of dimensional records). This faux Unichat page is an online database for dimensional information about anything we want to ask about the ((Delta)) lore. ((Delta)) has given us the name dimension "RSA-113" as the origin of ((Delta)) and has also authcode-locked multiple files as well, which implies further codes for us to solve in order to access these files.

PM'd by ((Delta)) about A.D.D.R.:
I tried-out A.D.D.R. and searched for "The Tea Room", besides two links to Wikipedia pages about tea, a file on the organization was listed in the results. I accessed it and have received a PM of the file. Here it is:
"FILE: "The Tea Room (Organization)"
AUTHOR: "[REDACTED]"
CONTENT: "The organization known as "The Tea Room" originated as a radical dismantalist group created by Unichat user, and dimensional terrorist, ((Delta)) of dimension "RSA-113". Though listed on government domestic terrorism watch-lists; The Tea Room was largely considered a non-threat at the time of its conception, but after the "Final Event" of dimension "RSA-113" the group's destructive ideals were revealed in the "((Delta)) Signal"." All further information has been [REDACTED] and is unavailable in your dimension."
PM'd by ((Delta)) about A.D.D.R. (Again):
This and the previous PM were titled "A.D.D.R. File Transfer".
FILE: "Timeline Alternates"
AUTHOR: "[REDACTED]"
CONTENT: "Timeline (or Dimensional) Alternates are duplicates of oneself that are created either via time altering events/technologies or dimensional interference. Though inter-dimensional communication is possible, actual travel is discouraged; as two alternates of the same person could not exist in the same dimensional plane in different places at the same time - they would cease existence. It has been found that the events within one alternate timeline can affect another as long as the event causes a severe enough difference between both timelines; causing a real-time Schrodinger's paradox. This rip in the dimension of time would cause a cascade effect ending all timelines as the destruction of one would cause further interference with all other adjacent timelines. All dimensional interference was banned by the Department of Dimensional Law to prevent such an event immediately after this realization was made by theoretical physicist [REDACTED]."

Re: [SPOILERS] ((Delta)) Code-Breaking/Lore Theorizing

Post by Arbiter on Sat Sep 09, 2017 10:50 pm

Alright, I've been sitting on this information for some time now, but I figure I might as well make it public, because 1. like I said, many heads are better than one, and 2. if Delta's codes are ever going to be solved like (I assume) he wants, it won't happen with the idiot comic relief member of the Council working on it all on his own.
Sorry if I'm letting you down, Delta. I really did try.:
I have received several private messages from Delta providing me with hints to the codes. This is how I acquired the key you mentioned. Subsequent messages read "This key's lock is yet to come... besides "[s]Half a key can't open much.[/s]"" [sic] and "Perhaps a useless key isn't much of a gift, perhaps an old-school approach to clues is better... Oh well, I can't think of anything right now... maybe some other time!  Smile" [emphasis his]. That point he made about an "old-school approach" was definitely a clue, although I didn't realize it until he outright confirmed it in a later message. He sent me a string of numbers, decipherable through the same process as the first code, which translated to "The cipher for the code is an old school approach." Obviously important, but I don't know enough about codes to figure out what exactly it meant. Also I'm dumb. Razz
Anyway, that last message was entitled "Do not tell anyone you have received this message", and until now I haven't. I'm still hesitant to do so, as I respect Delta as a puzzle master and want to honour his wishes, but I know I'll never crack it on my own. I'm Arbiter. I crack jokes, not codes. Besides, that message was sent during the time when Delta was roleplaying that The Order had taken over his account, and as such he was actively disobeying them by contacting me. Now that that plotline seems to either have been resolved or retconned, I doubt the prohibition on revealing information still stands.
So there you have it. That's all the secret information I've received that pertains to these codes. The only other thing I want to do is remind you of the cryptic little message that used to be found in Delta's first post in The Tea Room, back when it was still explicitly about The Order. "Remember, I before E except after T." I don't know what it means or if it's relevant to this (it might just be a reference to the members of The Order: Inquisitor, Executor, Templar), but I think we should remember it anyway.

An old-school approach, eh? So I'm thinking this is an old cipher/code, and the previous "Follow the train for it's message" thing maybe ties into this (a train is an old form of travel).
Anyone know an old train code?

Arbiter wrote:"Remember, I before E except after T." I don't know what it means or if it's relevant to this (it might just be a reference to the members of The Order: Inquisitor, Executor, Templar), but I think we should remember it anyway.
Perhaps the chain of command? Inquisitor trumps Executor, but Templar trumps both?

Alright, so an update.
Another PM from Delta:
"Revealing my secrets are we? Naughty boy!
Don't worry about telling everyone my messages, I love knowing that you take my codes seriously!

Arbiter wrote:"Now that that plotline seems to either have been resolved or retconned"
I prefer the term "dismantled," and it was only one of many. Now Ahab has got his eye on a bigger fish...

If I were you, I would share this one too...
something tells me you're not the only one getting a gift from me..."

You brilliant person, ((Delta))!:

So, reading that I looked up the most-watched videos in 2013. Top one is "What does the fox say". Go to 1:42 and "Will you communicate by Mo-o-o-o-orse?"
Now, I'm not saying that's necessarily right, but that just might be quite a hint.
I'll get right on it...

Unfortunately I've been quite busy for the last month, and will be for the foreseeable future,  so I can't spend as much time on this as I'd like. Still!

Edit:
Spoiler:

Well, that's a lunchtime (and a bit) spent on it. It is Morse code. The numbers in the square brackets are time on, and the numbers outside them time off. So you have:
[1] - dot
[3] - dash
1 - letter-part separator
3 - letter separator
7 - word separator

This is actually a very neat representation, once you get used to it. The plaintext seems to be:

I HAVE NO
HOME TO RETURN
TO AND NO
DESTINATION
AWAITING ME

BUT WITH ALL
OF TIME BOTH
AHEAD AND
BEHIND ME MY
THOUGHTS
THINKING OF
THEM

Could someone check that second part for me, please? It feels a little off...
I also have no idea what it means. Thoughts?

Edit edit:
Spoiler:

I think the 8.3.7 may have been a clue to its being Morse code, as I think it may have been developed in 1837. Or it might be something completely different.

Edit edit edit:
Spoiler:

I couldn't resist the next code as well. It seems to be
NOW I AM
BECOME DEATH
THE DESTROYER
OF WORLDS
So, erm, nukes all around?

Seriously, though, looking at the Hindu text, this could be some reference to following one's sense of duty. I leave it in your capable hands.

Edit edit edit edit!
PM from ((Delta))!
((Delta)) wrote:Edit: Subject of "TO: DAN BROWN", in case that's a hint.
Clever, clever!
I must admit that I didn't expect my puzzle to be solved so soon, you deserve a gift for your troubles!
Enjoy!:
9. 12. 10. may only be half a key, but if you put your halves together you get 0. But only half isn't much (stellar observation on my part), so how about another gift: 52 53 41
Unfortunately it's now very late where I am, so I'll come back tomorrow and have a proper look.

New information!
I was sent a new message, "Re: 3f 79 3d 7a 54 4e 4e 6d 5f 74 68 52 45 54".
Technically a spoiler:

(hex codes for ASCII "?y=zTNNm_thRET", since that was probably the first thing everyone else was going to do)
The text of this message was:
Change-Transmission-Writer-Cipher: Lnutv [Bglqcno]

Oh, and I don't know if this is a clue, but the subject of the previous message (the 9. 12. 10 one) was "TO: DAN BROWN". I'll amend my previous post to mention it, just in case it's important.

Leaves, I received a very similar message. It had the same title as yours, only without the "Re:" part. "3f 79 3d 7a 54 4e 4e 6d 5f 74 68 52 45 54". The fact that yours had the re: tag and mine didn't makes me think he sent mine first.

The text of my message was as follows:
CFRINPDLBKYOQUZEMTGWHXSJVA

I think that we need to use your message to decode my message. And I'm certain that the Dan Brown thing is a hint. Dan Brown was the author of the Da Vinci Code.

Ah, apologies, the "Re: " should have been outside the speech marks. The message was sent at 11:27pm 21/09, if that helps.
About the Dan Brown thing, the reason I'm not so certain it's a hint, and why I didn't originally think to mention it, is that in that message ((Delta)) was praising my code-breaking skills for cracking the Morse one, and Dan Brown is a sort-of proverbially-good-at-codes person. I'm not saying it isn't, but I'd stop far short of "certain". However, I feel that it being in the subject line on its own possibly suggests that it is. So there's that.

Hmm... Has anyone here read any of Dan Brown's books? I'm wondering if Δ's code is the same as a code Brown uses in one of his books.

I also received a message with the same title as you two of "3f 79 3d 7a 54 4e 4e 6d 5f 74 68 52 45 54". Mine did not include a "Re:" if that means anything.

The message was as follows:
"Change-Writer-Cipher: MDEwMTAxMTAgMDExMDAxMDEgMDExMDExMTAgMDExMDAxMTEgMDExMDAwMDEgMDExMDExMTAgMDExMDAwMTEgMDExMDAxMDE="

Not Exactly a Breakthrough, but Maybe a Start...:
So far Delta's given us two "half keys", ("8. 3. 7." and "9. 12. 10."), and said that "if you put your halves together you get zero." 8+3+7+9+12+10=49, and the 49th character in Unicode is the numeral 0.
I tried adding up the digits of the other key you got, "52 53 41". It equals 146. The 146th Unicode character is apparently a private use character, so I don't think adding the digits of the second key gives us anything meaningful. Nonetheless, it might be worth thinking about.

I'm Actually Kind of Freaked Out Right Now:
Delta, you evil genius, you somehow managed to set it up so that your username appears as the Unicode characters corresponding to 52, 53, and 41 when I quote your text, as "Arbiter 2" in my notifications, and as its regular self everywhere else. I really don't know what to make of that second one. Should I set up an official fan club thread for myself?

Some more PMs from Delta.
Maj.-Gen. Waffle in the Library with a Candle Stick:
Synonym.
I've also received some "A.D.D.R. Online File Transfers." I'll post all the ones that haven't already been mentioned on this thread below.
File Transfers:

FILE: "A.D.D.R."
AUTHOR: "D.D.R."
CONTENT: "The Adjunct Department of Dimensional Records is an online database intended to document all publicly available files from the Department of Dimensional Records. The A.D.D.R. System does not include classified information, ongoing court cases, or (court mandated) removed information."

FILE: "Vague Omnipresent Council"
AUTHOR: "Xenocartographer"
CONTENT: "Sorry! This file appears to have been corrupted! A report has been sent to the Department of Dimensional Records to rectify the situation!"

FILE: "Dimensional Designation"
AUTHOR: "[REDACTED]"
CONTENT: "The D.D.R./A.D.D.R. Dimensional Designation system designates each dimension with a numerical label corresponding to its relation to dimension "AAA-1" the origin of the Department." Dimension "AAA-1" is classified: all further data has been [REDACTED].

FILE: "D.D.R."
AUTHOR: "D.D.R."
CONTENT: "The Department of Dimensional Records, was created with the goal of organizing and cataloging the infinite pool of information that the multiverse provides. With the D.D.R. database at hand, numerous scientific breakthroughs have been made, including advancements to D.D.R.'s communication systems! After much public outcry for a public release of the D.D.R. database; the A.D.D.R. Online Database was created. The system functions on learning algorithms to translate queries into search-able results. With infinite data tot search through, there's no better time to find your answers than now!"

Spoiler:
Oh, and in case he changes it again soon, while I was writing this, Delta's username was "Hex->Caesar->Text".

Post by Padlock on Fri Sep 29, 2017 9:33 pm

"Maj.-Gen. Waffle in the library with a candle stick" is a clear reference to "Clue," which I assume is a hint at the meaning of the PM. The word synonym was confusing to me at first, but then after looking at the previous PMs from ((Delta)) it became clear that they were written in synonyms. When translated they give us:

"Change-Transmission-Writer-Cipher" is a synonym of "Delta-Signal-Author-Code".

"Change-Writer-Cipher" is "Delta-Author-Code".

This must mean that we have been given the authcodes for the "((Delta))" and "((Delta)) Signal" encrypted files on A.D.D.R.
The fact that Arbiter's PM did not include a synonym, makes me think that it is the cipher key.

Half Codes:
((Delta))'s comments on "putting two together giving zero" and "who said you had to add them?" makes me think they mean to subtract, which gives us: 1. 9. 3.
Hex -> Cesar -> Text:
Taking 53 52 41 and using this method gives: O P X. (also "3f 79 3d 7a 54 4e 4e 6d 5f 74 68 52 45 54" gives: "?v=wQKKj_qeOBQ")

Hello, boys! I'm back!:
"?v=wQKKj_qeOBQ" looks a lot like the last part of the URL for a YouTube video. More specifically, it's the code for this video. (Don't worry, it's short and safe for work.) Is this relevant, a coincidence, or does Delta just really like Independence Day?

Ok, so Googling "OPX" give a Wikipedia link page, the top link is "OPX (meteorite class), a class of Martian meteorites". This links to "Allan Hills 84001", a meteorite "best known for gaining intense media attention in 1996 when a group of scientists claimed to have found evidence for microscopic fossils of Martian bacteria in it". This was later disproven but still interesting.
No, the reason I think this is what ((Delta)) is referring to is the message this was included with:
((Delta)) wrote:But only half isn't much (stellar observation on my part), so how about another gift: 52 53 41
Notice the emphasis on "stellar observation"? I think this was a hint to this being a space rock.

With all of the A.D.D.R. stuff; I didn't notice until now that the "Tea Room" thread is issuing-

Re: [SPOILERS] ((Delta)) Code-Breaking/Lore Theorizing

Post by Arbiter on Sat Jan 06, 2018 12:03 am

Alright, so if you highlighted the white text in Delta's last message, you'll see that I am one of the two judges who hold Delta's keys. As near as I can figure, this key is probably the code that was included in a PM I got from Delta not too long ago, entitled "Found you..." I will attempt to recreate this PM as faithfully as possible below.
Found you...:
33 34 2e 30 35 32 32 c2 b0 20 51 2c 20 31 31 38 2e 32 34 33 37 c2 b0 20 5a
((Delta)): Now it is time for your appointment....
This is what happens when you are disobedient.

The same day, I received another PM, entitled "My Apologies..."
My Apologies...:
My dearest apologies for my previous message... that was not intended for you.
Forget you ever saw it.

And then two days later, I got this message.
Pre-Goodbye:
MY FINAL CODE:
Send the Dimension Signature, along with the Dimension Numerical, to Xenocartographer, he will know what it means.
[Arbiter's Note: Sorry for the spoiler-box-ception situation going on here. I always put recreated PM's inside spoiler boxes, and this particular PM actually contained the message inside a spoiler box.]

Commentary on the Previous PMs:
Alright, so as you can see, the code looks like it's another Hex->Caesar->Text, but it's not that simple. Simply converting from hex codes to characters gives us "32.0522° Q, 118.2437° Z", which looks pretty nonsensical if you try to read it as text. However, it looks like it could be coordinates. I don't know what to think of the accented A's, but if I simply ignore them, shift both unaccented letters right three places in the alphabet, and leave everything else untouched, I get 32.0522° N, 118.2437° W, which if I enter into Google Earth, puts me...


...In the Pacific Ocean, almost due west of Tijuana and due south of San Clemente Island. A popular tourist destination, I'm sure.

Well, that was a bust. Moving on.

Anyway, this message also contains another white-texted message from Delta, in between the code and the little tidbit about disobedience. I've included it in my transcript, so if you highlight it you'll see it reads as follows: "((Delta)): Now it is time for your appointment..." Combined with the sentence below, this makes for a rather threatening message indeed. I suppose I should be glad Delta clarified that it wasn't actually meant for me. Of course, by writing this, I suppose I've revealed that I've broken his command to forget I ever saw it, so maybe I'll be finding out what happens when you're disobedient too. (Gulp.)

I have a few thoughts on this. First of all, if this wasn't meant for me, who was it meant for? Well, the title of the message suggests it's someone who's fairly difficult to find, and the white message implies it's someone with whom people often have appointments. Could it be Delta's unseen-but-still-terrifying friend, the Inquisitor? Does this mean that there's some infighting within the Order (or the Tea Room or the Apocalypse Fanboys or whatever the hell they're calling themselves now)? Now that I think about it, if this is a threat, then the coordinates I got make a lot of sense. Is Delta threatening to deposit this person at those coordinates? What a terrible place to be, with only a few kilometres of ocean separating you from Tijuana on one side and an American naval base on the other! (Shudder.)

Well, if they really are coordinates, I don't know how they can also be the key to a code. Maybe it'll make more sense when we know what messages Dellis got? In any case, the final PM seems like it's related to this as well, since Delta titled it his final code and we've been told the previous message in this thread was Delta's final code... for now. But I don't really know what I'm supposed to send Xeno, or what it has to do with this. Dimension Signature? Dimension Numerical? I put in a query on the ADDR thread about those. Turns out that the ADDR's system is unfortunately no longer operational, which I suppose is no surprise since the archives have probably been around longer than the age of our universe, but the error message was helpful enough to inform me that the dimension signature is the letter part of the code for a dimension (ie. "RSA") and the dimension numerical is the number part of the code (ie. "113"). But which dimension was he referring to? RSA-113, the one that the thread seems to focus on? AAA-1, the dimension that the department originated in? RSA-99999999999999? Oh God, I hope not. Fuck that dimension. And what would Xeno do with that information anyway? He's implied to be in a different dimension than we are in-comic, so are we looking for the code for his dimension? I suppose one of the codes probably contains the dimension designation we're looking for.

Any thoughts guys?

Edit:
Dimension Designation?:
Hmm, now that I'm re-reading this thread, do you guys think the dimension signature could be OPX (HCT of 53 52 41, the hex of the usual dimension signature RSA)? What would the numerical be? 193, the difference of the two half-codes?

Edit 2: Edit Saves Christmas:
I am a moron:
So yeah, it’s been pointed out to me that I got the latitude coordinate wrong. It should be 34.0522° N, not 32.0522° N. Geez, that’s a dumb mistake, even for me.

Anyway, entering these corrected coordinates still puts us in pretty much the middle of nowhere, at 100 W 1st St, in some obscure American town called “Los Angeles”. Personally, I’ve never heard of it, but apparently that’s the address of the police department headquarters. Huh, they actually have their own police department. That’s pretty impressive. Maybe they have a Wikipedia article too.

Well, would you look at that. They do! Apparently, “Los Angeles” is the most populous city in California, and it’s located in between a large mountain range to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. It’s also home to the country’s film industry.

Oh, I see. So it’s an American rip-off of Vancouver. Once again the US resorts to simply copying Canadian culture instead of forging their own national identity.

Anyway, I guess this “Los Angeles” must be important somehow, although I can’t possibly imagine why. If these are the coordinates of the police department, does that mean that whoever Delta was sending this message to got arrested? What an awful plight, to get locked up in the county jail in some remote backwater community like that! I hope this poor person at least has running water.

Also, it’s worth noting that California does border Nevada, meaning it’s not too far from the coordinates Sonja asked for on page 129. I don’t know how relevant that is, though.

P.S. Sorry for dissing your hometown so much, Padlock. You should be proud of where you’re from. Lots of great people come from small towns nobody’s ever heard of! Maybe someday you can put Los Angeles on the map!

Two keys: one whole, one of two parts.
It's quite simple actually: the cipher is in the John Hancock.

Aha! “John Hancock”! Say, no more, Delta, I understand your clue! I know what I have to do to decipher this code!



But for real though...:
”John Hancock” is slang for “name”. “The cipher’s in the name.” Do you guys have any suggestions for what name he’s referring to?

...And I almost missed that little message in white text. Very clever. “Two keys: one whole, one of two parts.” Hmm. We probably need Dellis’ key in order to figure out the code, then.

Edit: Shortly after I wrote this message, I received what seems to be a response from Delta in the form of a PM entitled "Lost and Found."

Lost and Found:
Very good! I can't wait to see you at our next L&L D&D game!
Nothing to see here...

Analysis of "Lost and Found:
That title is interesting in and of itself. "Lost and Found"... I wonder why he called it that.

I'm going to guess the "very good" line was Delta congratulating me on my analysis of the codes so far, so I guess he thinks I'm onto something? That's good to know. The reference to D&D is a sort of running joke that Delta and I have had ever since the original Tea Room RP in the Unichat comments section. Just because we seem to have opposing objectives in-universe doesn't mean we can't still have Games Night! "L&L" is probably another clue, although I'm not exactly sure what it stands for. Latitude and Longitude, maybe? A confirmation that the code from earlier really was referring to geographical coordinates?

And this message comes complete with yet more white text! "Nothing to see here..." What do you think that means? My first impression was that it was just a little joke, poking fun at anyone highlighting all the text to look for more secret messages where none exist, but I suppose it could be the opposite: a sort of ironic indication that there is more to this message than meets the eye. In any case, if there is any additional hidden meaning here, I have no idea what it is.
