    heey guys, did anyone manage to extract some sort of information from the rhopagroup site?
    im very curious whats to be found here...
    all i can see is a magic square that gives 66 at each row and colom

    okay.. i just found this exact same info in another topic...
    sorry i shouldve read more into the other posts...

    but in my defense it was a post regarding the last artifact checkpoint while i wanted to dedicate this to the rhopagroup

    it looks like that document has been hijacked.

    All I was able to find so far was the matrix of numbers on the Rhopagroup page.

    All rows, columns and diagonals add up to 66.
    Let me poke around with some linear algebra... my favorrrrrriiiite :(

    Edit 1:
    Matrix determinant is 0, meaning it is non-invertible. Nothing else noteworthy.

    It seems this is called a magic square and this is known already
    Nothing came out of decimal/hex to ascii conversion but some funky symbols


    Don't seem to be too useful.

    Edit 2:

    In the source code - the image containing the square is called "Spell.png"
    So, assuming each letter in a cell represents a number in the alphabet (all numbers <26) let me see what it spells:


    This amounts to nada - and it also amounts to nada when run through ROT13, as well as ROT1-ROT25.

    Edit 3:

    Tried the port thing as in the other thread and got the the same 356-2016 as everyone else. This image is also called "Spell.png"

    Seems this territory has been tread before but I thought I'd put in a noobish perspective

    apparantly 356-2016 was the code we needed to dismantle some bomb we encountered during operation RollingViper...
    theres nothing usefull hidden inside, so the investigations have been halted...
    bladedraconis and Balamung like this.
