17:17 < wetsand> Theory. the first F on page 0 is not encrypted. 17:18 < wetsand> Previous research on my part shows YOURSELF as a good word 17:18 < wetsand> I can't remember what I did to get that, I think i just decided the shift should be a little to start with and grow each rune 17:19 < wetsand> Now... lets look at the clue again... (Seek and YOU will be found) 17:19 < wetsand> Now giving us the first 3 runes on the first page.. That is certainly a more helpful clue.
Shift = 19,6,18,29,21,2,8,1
I am giving the shift in line with the prime number sequence being a shift.. Not prime -1 And here is why.
Shift Table Lookup, as done in the old days with pen and paper. 1) ABCDE 2) BCDEA 3) CDEAB
So when you start with Prime number 2, you lookup table line 2, and you only shift once. So much simpler that using a function that happens to subtract 1, or for just subject 1 out of the blue. Simplest solution is probably the right one.
We have 13 red runes on that page. Form 3 blocks: 5 runes, 3 runes and 5 runes. I couldn't decipher the second block, but maybe the first and the third. I used the numbers 13 and 3 (13 dots and 3 joists on the crosses) Now you have to go Forward ( + ) and back (- ) like this:
S H E O G M IO F S Y E ING K/C -13 +13 -3 +13 -13 -13 +13 -3 +13 -13
TH ING S T OE TH I S K ING
THINGS TO E... THIS KING
Maybe I have wasted my time with this. Now I've tried to decipher the second block for abaout 3 hours and couldn't finde a matching word (and I have no idea what to do with the rest of that page). English is not my native language (it's german) which makes it not easier for me. But i don't give up :-)
Shifted the first word through the tables, i posted in tools pdf4tw, didnt lead to an result, heres a pdf so everybody can take a look at it... (I like negative results, so i dont need to try on my own...) Btw i really do appreciate your work doro and i hope you will keep on sharing your results
