On the Subject of The Inverted Indigo Cipher
Roses are red. Violets are blue. Indigo cipher is here, and you are doomed.
On the module, you will see 3 screens, a keyboard, 2 arrows, and a submit button that displays the current page you’re on.
Pressing the right arrow takes you to the next page. Pressing the left arrow takes you to the previous page. There is a total of 2 pages.
On page 1, the top screen shows a 6 letter encrypted word, the middle screen shows an encrypted logic key, the bottom screen shows a word.
On page 2, the top and middle screen shows a 6 digit binary number, the bottom screen shows an logic operation.
Follow the mechanics down below to decrypt your word:
Step 1: Fractionated Morse Cipher
Take the word from the bottom screen on page 1 and convert it to a letter key using the rules below:
- Remove any duplicate letters from the keyword (keep each letter’s first occurrence).
- Take the entire alphabet, and remove the letters shown in the word.
- If the number of ports is odd, place the alphabet at the end of the word.
- Otherwise, place the alphabet in front of the word.
Now that you have the letter key, place the following underneath the key:
Take the encrypted logic key from the middle screen on page 1, and for each letter, convert it to the symbols according to your key you made.
Now read it as Morse, top to bottom, left to right, treating the Xs as spaces between the letters.
