    Which also include the Div42 version of the Jacket, I suspect. :)

    The $1300 and $2800 tiers also say they come with the jacket, and those each show a backer, too... so it's possible there are still a couple more out there. Five jackets would also make sense with the fact that there are five letters.

    Teach me to do things just after waking up. In that case, we know Kiesteel is one of those. I don't think the other came public?

    Oh no... The other could be...

    Only word I could find that fit that letter arrangement, so either it's Mel Brooks who's behind it all, or we have the wrong combination of letters.

    Having slept a bit - and read the insights of Nikel on IRC - I do agree that it might not be letters we're looking at, if nothing else, then because finding a specific word would still leave us stranded with nowhere else to proceed (if there indeed is somewhere to proceed to).

    So, it might, for example, be an URL extension, such as to an Imgur album - which I believe is 5 characters long?

    Good news: Imgur can be 5 characters long. Bad news: It is case sensitive.

    I've got anoher idea. Maybe we are looking for 5 words, every word related its hint, and whith all 5 words maybe taking the letters marked by the hyphen something is revealed. Maybe that way it would be easier than looking for letters alone.

    This seems to make sense but now I see flukes everywhere so I'm not sure :/

    "their normal civilian jobs and families. Our entire staff was there to see them"

    Edit: I guess not so new :C

    Now that i have seen bats letter, i have to revise my opinion...since hers starts with a hyphen, i think we may be looking at having to join them all together. I doubt its matzo, though, lol.

    Oh Santiak referenced something I said on IRC but didn't really copy it here.

    While I think it's weird for a hangman game to have numbers, it doesn't feel right to me to shorten Zero to Z and Tetris to T, especially when M is already 1 character. I think it could be M _ T Z _, but it might also be M _ 4 0 _.

    Or maybe the 'unused letters' theory is correct and we should see what's left over once all 5 papers are collected.

    My first instinct is to say that all of the letters in "the wind rises" are already guessed meaning (T, H, E, W, I, N, D, R, S) are not in the puzzle...

    In which case, the letters available for each known Hangman so far, are:

    Bljkr: A B F H J K L Q S V W X Z
    Bats: A B C I K L M P Q S T U V W X Z
    Santiak: A B C F G J K L M O P Q U V X Y Z

    And, if we go with the theory that they might all be contributing to the same answer:
    All together now!: A B K L Q V X Z

    Just one vowel left? And the remaining consonants quite uncommon? That makes the remaining letters theory (at least in the "same answer contribution" theory) unlikely imho. At least if it is a key word and not an imgur code or similar
    But I guess we have to wait for the remaining jackets...

    This is hangman. You can have double letters.
    So Abba would work.

    ABBA is certainly evil enough to be partnering with Whitechapel. Fun fact: Mamma Mia was created by a temporal loop surrounding a rupture site. "Here we go again!"

    Combine that with the fact that hanged men are often referred to as "dancing at the end of a rope"...

    Answer: Dancing Queen!

    (the crown must've fallen off. or it's a reference to hate crimes. no, probably just lost the crown.)
