On the Subject of Roman Art

Otherwise known as giant marble buildings, people, or sometimes paintings.

This module has a display which shows a picture of a piece of ancient Roman art or other famous pieces throughout Rome. It has two arrow buttons on either side of the display which cycle through the different pieces the module has choosen (The module has thirty possiblities and choses six on start up). The image first seen is art piece 1, and then the 2nd when cycled to the right, and so on until it loops back to the 1st again. It also displays a random Roman numeral towards the bottom of the module. However, this numeral MAY look slightly different than an actual Roman numeral. This is because the display for the numeral is SOMETIMES broken.

To solve this module the defuser must press a few of these selected pieces in a certain order. In order to find out which to press and the order, follow the step-by-step process below.

If the defuser presses a wrong piece or presses them in the wrong order, a strike will be recorded and the module WILL reset.

This is the uncensored (original) version of the manual, use this one if you do not have censored mode enabled. You will know if you have censored mode enabled if a 'C' appears above the top left of the broken numeral display. If you do have it enabled, use this one instead.

Step 1:

Create a six digit number using the table on Pages 2-3. Decipher* the broken Roman numeral given by the module and find its corresponding column. Then, move from top to bottom on the rows stopping at each piece the module has and get the digit from that box. The digits you received from top to bottom are your six digit number.

* - Decipher just means to convert the broken Roman numeral to a number, if you don't know how to do this refer to Page 6 of the manual.

Step 2:

Modify your six digit number by following the bullet points below to make a new number.

  • Take the serial number and replace all letters with the corresponding digits from the table below
  • Add each digit from your six digit number to their corresponding digit on the modified serial number
  • If one of the sums ends up being greater than 9, take the sum's least significant digit (digit farthest to the right)
  • Remove any repeating zeros starting from the left until a digit between 1-9 is reached (Ex. 001796 = 1796)
  • If followed correctly a new number should be made.

    A B C D E F G H I J K L M

    N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

    Step 3:

    Time to find out which pieces to press and in what order. Encrypt*** the new number that was received in Step 2. Then, read the left column from top to bottom and the first set of rules that applies is the row that should be used to find the pieces and their order. NOTE: The table continues onto Page 5.

    */***/****How to Decipher/Encrypt a Broken Numeral

    A broken Roman numeral is basically a Roman numeral where the formatting is off a bit. For example, IV is understood at 4, when on this module being "broken" it is IIII. Another big one being IX = 9 when here its broken form is VIIII.

    NOTE: The module classifies the numeral as broken even if it isn't because it can't be sure. If the numeral is indeed broken and never needs to fully fixed for this module, be advised that parts of it may have to be fixed for Step 3 (Fixing is essentially correcting the formatting).

    Deciphering A Broken Numeral

    • Each letter of a Roman numeral is equal to a certain value, as seen in the table on the next page
    • Convert each letter to their value, and then sum them all together to fully decrypt and receive your number

    Encrypting A Broken Numeral

    • Each letter of a Roman numeral is equal to a certain value, as seen in the table on the next page
    • Take the number and place the letter equal to the highest amount that can be subtracted from the number in the front
    • Continue on with the next highest, and the next, and so on until all values have been subtracted from the number

    Roman Numeral Value Table

    Numeral Letter Value Numeral Letter Value
    D(bar) 500000 D 500
    C(bar) 100000 C 100
    L(bar) 50000 L 50
    X(bar) 10000 X 10
    V(bar) 5000 V 5
