On the Subject of Inverted Fur Cipher

OwO you're so warm :3

This module contains 3 screens, a keyboard, 2 arrows, and a submit button that displays the current page you’re on.

Pressing the left or right arrow takes you to the previous or next page. There are 2 pages.

To disarm the module, decrypt a word using the following three steps. Once you have the decrypted word, type it in using the keyboard. When you start typing, the screens go blank and the bottom screen will show what you are typing.

To clear your input, click one of the arrows.

Once you are satisfied with your input, press the button labeled “UwU” to submit your answer.

Step 1: OwO Cipher

For this step you will need the middle display on page 1 called Key 1 and the bottom display on page 1 called Key 2.

For each letter in Key 1, consider the Base36 character in the same position in the serial number. Take the serial number character modulo 3 and place this many instances of the letter in Key 1. Follow this up with a W and add more instances of the letter in Key 1 until you have a total of 3 characters. Write each created string of 3 characters below the previous.

Next read the Letters column by column from left to right and split them up into 6 groups of 3.

For each group, take the corresponding letter in Key 2 and subtract the alphabetic position of each letter in the group. Add 26 till in range 1-26 and convert back to a letter, this is your first Keyword KW1.

Example

Key 1: EQOUNC
Key 2: VAURLO
Serial Number: VD3QK1

22 (V) - 05(E) - 17(Q) - 23(W) = -23 -> 03 -> C
01 (A) - 21(U) - 14(N) - 03(C) = -37 -> 15 -> O
21 (U) - 23(W) - 23(W) - 15(O) = -40 -> 12 -> L
18 (R) - 21(U) - 14(N) - 23(W) = -40 -> 12 -> L
12 (L) - 05(E) - 17(Q) - 15(O) = -25 -> 01 -> A
15 (O) - 23(W) - 23(W) - 03(C) = -34 -> 18 -> R
KW1: COLLAR

Step 2: Monosodium Glutamate Cipher

For this step you will need the encrypted word from the top display on page 1, KW1 from step 1, as well as the middle and bottom screen on page 2, referred to as KW2 and KW3 respectively.

First we will create 2 Alphabets A2 and A3 using KW2 and KW3.

Remove all duplicate letters from the keyword keeping the first occurrence, then take an entire alphabet and remove all letters from the keyword. If X is even place the Alphabet after Keyword, otherwise place it before.

For A2, X is equal to the first digit in the serial number. For A3, X is equal to the amount of batteries on the bomb.

Place A3 as it is. Now put 13 dashes above and below A3, alternating between a space and a dash. If the first letter of KW1 has an even position in the alphabet, the 13 dashes above A3 start with a dash, and the 13 dashes below A3 start with a space, otherwise do it the other way around.

Now replace each of these dashes in reading order with the letters of A2.

Before we can start decrypting we will need a number key: If the last letter of KW1 comes before N in the alphabet this is 926612, otherwise it is 621926.

For each letter in the encrypted string, do the following:

  • Find the encrypted letter in the middle row.
  • From there go left a number of spaces equal to the alphabetic position of the corresponding letter in KW1. (wrapping around)
  • Then move to the outer row in the same column containing a letter and take note of this letter.
  • Again find this letter in the center row and staying in the same column go to the correct outer row.
  • There move right a number of letters equal to the corresponding digit in the number key, skipping over empty spaces and wrapping around.
  • This is your decrypted letter.

After having done this for every letter you will have your new encrypted word.

Example

Encrypted Word: IMWMRT
KW1: COLLAR
KW2: MAW
KW3: SUITING
Serial Number: VD3QK1
2 batteries

A2: BCDEFGHIJKLNOPQRSTUVXYZMAW
A3: SUITNGABCDEFHJKLMOPQRVWXYZ

M -L> N/R -> R/M -9> V
R -A> Q/K -> K/X -2> Z
T -R> F/G -> G/D -6> J
new encrypted String: CGCVZJ

Step 3: Pizza Slice Cipher

For this step you will need the new encrypted word from Step 2, the number on the top display on page 2 and KW1 created in step 1.

First create an Alphabet. Take KW1 and remove any duplicate letters, keeping the first occurrence. Then take an entire Alphabet and remove all letters in KW1. If the number of port plates plus indicators is greater than 4 place the alphabet after KW1, otherwise place it before. This is your Alphabet A1.

You will be creating a lattice consisting of 4 rows of letters. If the last digit of the serial number is odd, the rows will have 6, 7, 6 and 7 letters from top to bottom. If the last digit is even the will be 7, 6, 7 and 6.

For each row alternate between placing a dash and a space, starting with a dash on rows with 7 letters and a space for rows with 6 letters. Then replace the dashes in reading order with the letters from A1 to create your lattice of letters.

To decrypt the encrypted word start with the number given by the top display, this is your starting offset. Repeat the following steps for each of the letters in the encrypted string:

  • Take your offset and subtract the given encrypted letter
  • Find the encrypted letter in the lattice.
  • Move diagonally up and left an amount determined by your offset divided by 7, dropping any remainders and wrapping around. (When you move off the left or right edge go 2 spaces up instead of 1)
  • From there move right an amount of spaces determined by the offset modulo 7, wrapping around.
  • The current position is the decrypted letter.

After having decrypted all letters you will have your decrypted word and may submit it.

Example

Encrypted Word: CGCVZJ
KW1: COLLAR
starting offset: 79
Serial Number: VD3QK1
2 port plates, 2 indicators
