S**T. i think i get it.
we have to decrypt the words that we got before starting on each translation

so like Ilik might translate to something else.

#64

Osh. That’s gonna be tough. Maybe the second part of the message is a key for each decryption?


#65

maybe? thats what im thinking anyways. It’d make sense with the whole slow down dealio.
whatever the case, we’re gonna have a step here that we just arent noticing.

Great work @cheyyyme!!!

My message was “For Ilif : “not””


#72

What time? (Herman Standard)


#73

@cheyyyme what was the other message you received from someone?


#74

I’m adding the dwarfs to the spreadsheet. And guys, a party with invitations? Bilbio birthday?


#75

Wait so all of these work for dwarves?


#76

Yep, every one


#77

Could we try putting our messages in the order the dwarves arrived at Bilbo’s?


#78

only Gloin is missing.

Does anyone know the order?


#79

Now that it seems to be backward dwarf names, I shall contribute order of arrival as an option:

Dwalin; Bali, Fili and Kili; Dori, Nori, Ori, Oin and Gloin; Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Thorin and Gandalf."


#80

I think the cliffsnotes order may be the correct one? Dwalin, Balin, Kili, Fili, Dori, Nori, Ori, Oin, Gloin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, and Thorin.


#81

Faves, Chaos, Not Those, Be, Cold, _, Be, _, And, Ice, Be, Cold

Oin and Gloin are missing, so we’re missing 2 messages?
