## On the Subject of the Morbit CM

A machine that knows no bounds when it comes to ciphers.

Take the 8 letter keyword from screen 1 and write numbers 1–8 under the word in such a way that the ascending numbers are going in alphabetical order. If there’s a tie between letters, then accend in reading order.

Then write this string underneath the 8 number key:

...---xx
.-x.-x.-

This will be referred to as the Morbit Key.

Turn each letter of the encrypted word into its alphabetic position (A1Z26). Subtract 8 from each number until it is within the range of 1–8.

Concatenate this digit string with the numbers from screens 2 and 3 in that order if there are numbers present on those screens.

Convert each digit of the digit string into dots, dashes, and xs using the Morbit Key. Read it as Morse Code treating the Xs as spaces between the letters. You should now have a decrypted word.

#### Example

Encrypted Word: KCVB
Keyword: RELIGION
Key: 81532476
Screens 2 and 3: 64 5

KCVB → 11 3 22 2 → 3362 + 64 + 5 → 3362645
3 → -.
3 → -.
6 → x-
2 → --
6 → x-
4 → -x
5 → .x
-.-.x---x--x.x → COME

Decrypted Word: COME
