The CKEEK translates into ENIIN from puzzle #2. Don't know if it will help this puzzle.

so

ENIIN=HMBIQ

eniin could be niine backwards, 9 with an extra I. I is the 9th letter of the alphabet.

which one wasn't real? my eyes hurt staring at these too long.

the 4th one from the left?

and we shouldn't assign two symbols to the same letter (i).

If you want more drama, the letters 'eniin' add up to 51.

Why couldn't the "missing" symbol be S?

....and this is simply to avoid the one liner issue

Im making some slight headway having identified the double- letters plus one other anomily: in the word LFGFIQMQRJ there are 2 F's and 2 Q's.

So Im using www.wordbyletter.com... and the statistics on scottbryce.com... to attempt to fill in those letters and then fill in the gaps.

So far I have:


LFMNODCPANN
S LESS


and



HPAKAF
LE E


Not much yet I know, and Im probably way off the mark again but Im starting to run out of ideas and those symbols are looking a little purple to me.....

Anyone see any significance to the second set of symbols being set in the negative?

If you consider the missing symbol as "s" and then flip the order of each letter in the alphabet from beginning to end you get: SRX HWX

You are right, in that evil must be opposed. But consider this: an attitude such as: "everything that doesn't directly fight the wrongs of the world is a useless distraction", when taken to the extreme you are expressing, discards and rejects almost all fun, joy, or happiness that can be found in life. So, I consider the effects of demanding that such viewpoint is always proper to be, themselves, evil. Lighten up.

Besides, how do you know that we're not a secret resistance group, covertly communicating messages by our random-letter 'attempts' to solve the puzzles in this 'game'?

Note to NSA: Just kidding.

Woo-Hoo! I have a possible something to contribute!


This site does a word search for partially known words. For example, your first word:



LFMNODCPANN
S LESS


can be one of the following:

constabless
whiskerless

and



HPAKAF
LE E


Could be one of these:

spleget
xylenes
ycleped

At the site, type in the letters you know, and use ? for unknown letters. If you select "Show all matches", there are more words to choose from.

ok hold on ill make a picture for you guys



ok yay picture time






this is what I feared about multible letters being in place of the puzzle, meaning we supposedly would have to choose either or letter to make the current word.




I am using this cryptogram solver
www.esg.montana.edu...

Don't know for sure that this will help as I don't have time to sleuth this one myself, but you're all on the wrong track here. This isn't origami, the figures are made from an old Chinese game called Tangram. Tangram consists of 7 pieces, 5 triangles, one square, and a parelellogram. The figures shown on the list are various traditional Chinese figures made from the tangrams. (The challenge in Tangram is to form the figures by rearrainging the various tangrams. It's actually quite fun and challenging.)

I'd suggest doing a search on tangrams and see if there's any precident out there to them being used to relay messages via some sort of code.

I wouldn't say that symbol is bad. I think I'm making some headway. The first and second groups of three symbols show you how they are ordered. You can infer how they are arranged from there. I'm building a ordered set of symbols from them like ABC.

I remember these from grade school





the thing is, i think most people believe to be triangles alone because of the hint given before the game about triangles making puzzle and such
