    Code to break:
    SFAS NJHX FYOP WHWR EWPW TSIX TPZE MPRD TF

    And your only hint:
    YHVgFHyWYHxgDxAOYHSRDj==

    (PS the hint is double encrypted)

    First solution wins something. Not sure what quite yet, but most likely $5 steam giftcard....
    If you think you have solved it Please put your Solution Submission in Spoiler tags.

    Solved it, but the prize is still out there due to not claiming it! Lots of fun with this one, thx Cicada :)

    EDIT: Yeah, Cicada1337 is a klutz lol

    This Still Remains Unsolved (Kakuzen turned down the prize due to my accidental slip of the tongue that allowed him to solve it)

    Working on this. I think I know step one of the hint and what the thing to solve is coded in. Not sure about step 2 for the hint though.... Not sure if looking for gibberish or real word.
    Got the hint.

    -B-III-I-BCA-ADC
    but it makes no sense to me and now I'm stuck :(

    I have an idea, but that code requires a keyword, and I'm not too sure how to go about finding one

    Got it. It is
    THE CODE WORD SOLUTION IS PHEONIX RISING

    Thanks for the fun in solving this!

    Here is a walk through for anyone who might want it.
    Hint:
    YHVgFHyWYHxgDxAOYHSRDj==
    Translate Given hint to ROT 13. (ROT 13 > Text)
    This gives you: LUItSUlJLUktQkNBLUFEQw==
    Translate new code from Base64 to Text to get: -B-III-I-BCA-ADC

    Solution:
    SFAS NJHX FYOP WHWR EWPW TSIX TPZE MPRD TF
    Take hint section and set up enigma machine to the following:
    Umkehrwalze: B
    Walzenlage: III-I-II (you have to guess and test for the II)
    Ringstellung: B-C-A
    Grundstellung: A-D-C
    Set group letters in blocks of____ to: 4
    Enter block of text mode and insert the part to solve. (Note one block at a time or it won't work)
    You get: THEC ODEW ORDS OLUT IONI SPHE ONIX RISI NG

    Then just change where the spaces are and you get: The code word solution is pheonix rising
