On the Subject of Achieving Affine Cycles
Achieving? Is that really the best word you could come up with?
This module consists of a screen, eight dials with yellow labels, and a QWERTY keyboard.
The labels on the dials, when decrypted and read from left to right, spell out an eight letter word.
To solve the module, decrypt the displayed message, reference it in the keyword table to receive a solution word, then encrypt the solution word using the same encryption.
Use the letter on the dial and the dial’s direction in the below table to encrypt or decrypt a message. If a dial’s direction is north, do not modify the letter. If decrypting, use the left letter of the pair. If encrypting, use the right letter of the pair.
NOTE: Due to the way the affine cipher functions, a dial can never point west on this module. This is why West is not present in the table.
