QQPRNGKSSO

Mr Sanborn has given us a further clue NORTHEST – just so happens to correspond with QQPRNGKSSO.

The other clue he offered up was BERLINCLOCK which corresponds to NYPVTTMZFPK. Though your roman numeral theory does not isolate this clue as distinctly as it did in the first row.

I think Mr Sanborn has applied more than one method of encryption. If you can isolate NYPVTTMZFPK as you did QQPRNGKSSO you maybe getting closer to the decipher. ]]>

Everyone jumped on Berlin Clock yet side stepped the World Clock (Alexanderplatz) in Mitte, Berlin.

As we know Jim loves his ciphers… and I believe this one is about graph theory. We were lead to it by berlin clocks northeast.

Why? Alexanderplatz is an Icositetragon it is situated in the north east of Berlin. Why is this significant well so happens in the mathematical field of graph theory, the Schläfli graph, named after Ludwig Schläfli, is a 16-regular undirected graph with 27 vertices and 216 edges. It is a strongly regular graph with parameters .

Now how it relates to K4 I am still trying to work out. I have no clue how graph theory is applied. Maybe someone with that knowledge can shed a light. In the meantime I am going to try to see how it all works.. ]]>

If the “?” is a “Y” then the degrees would add to 220 like the sculpture. The letters for “clock” are in there, but that’s not how it works out. I went by “ID by rows” of letters.

]]>See a deadly ICBM track me by it to Northeast Grad. (adefhhhilnnnmptyr- or 195 degrees)

Pinch me! Berlin range! Oh man, to see” Iowa” do it ICBM!

If you want to try your own, look up Poe’s poem “The Raven” In the first stanza after “T is a visitor, I muttered” recall “T is your position” simply write the next 97 letters under the K4 letters. “Tapping at my chamber door only this and nothing more. Ah, distinctly I remember, it was the bleak of December, and each…”

Hint look at all the “U”s Byrlin! ]]>

-Just a suggestion. ]]>

And at the beginning (S1?), there’s PALIMPCEST for PALIMPSEST (C for S) and IQLUSION for ILLUSION (Q for L). Hints to letter substitutions there?

]]>I SHOULD HINT A LITTLE

Fun cipher to try. A variation of this could be in K4, currently working on a different idea though.
