    I got thru
    Door 1 and Door 3,
    but need a hint to unlock the remaining one, after a lot ot head-scratching!
    I think
    involved cipher method might be PlayFair,
    but cannot make anything from the
    password numbers.
    Anyone to collaborate?

    Hey Deidhena,
    It's not Playfair.
    Google "code name Ramsay".
    It's a Nihilist cipher.

    You are close:
    the poliybius square must have letters I and J in the same spot, so that k is in the third row instead of fourth

    I have some problems with door 1. I don't understand what's wrong...
    i use an rail fence decoder but the answer doesn't fit. I try the code with space, without space, with different offset, with 3 or 4 rails...

    Door 1
    Same issue. multiple sites and same answer. Answer doesn't work. Pretty sure i have to do something with it. Can't figure out what though. (I've also googled the answer directly, and that hasn't led to anything useful, unless i'm just looking in the wrong places.)

    Try entering the answer without spaces and in lower case. My decoder came with auto-caps and Stinger didn't seem to like that.

    Tried it, didn't work. May just have the wrong answer, But i'm fairly sure i did it correctly. Assuming correct, as answer is coherent language and not alphabet soup. Could be wrong though. Actual answer might also be related to perceived answer, as well. Hasn't led to anything though.

    Durped and forgot to add a "login" to the password line.

    Just use paper and pen, no spaces, lower case.
