    Oh, shit. Oh actual fuck. I lost the goddamn baby.
    Okay, keep it cool Dipper. This is fine. This is totally fine. It's not really YOUR fault the baby is missing, anyway, right? Right.
    Murphy is totally not going to buy that. I am so fucked.
    I hate children so much. Fuck.

    Hello Agent,

    You have been specially selected to take on a mission of the utmost importance. A client of the Division 79 Childcare Facility has gone missing. This client is the two year old son of one of our active agents, Agent Murphy, who is currently in deep cover and cannot be contacted. The child, codenamed AGENT BABY, is currently being tracked by a GPS locator embedded in his pacifier, which was placed by Agent Murphy. Unfortunately, because the tracker is privately owned by Agent Murphy, we do not have the access code to unencrypt the coordinates.

    Your first task will be to determine Agent Baby's whereabouts and direction of travel. From there, you may be called upon for further investigation into this case as needed.

    Due to the vulnerability of Agent Baby while he is outside of the care of the Division 79 Childcare Facility, discretion is advised. Please do your best to keep knowledge of this mission contained, especially from people who may know Agent Baby personally(such as friends and close coworkers of Agent Murphy). Any and all correspondence should be directed to [email protected] rather than directly to any higher-ups in our organization, in order to maximize opsec.

    Your expedient work is much appreciated.

    --Agent MidDipper


    Action required: Utilize a note left by Agent Murphy to decrypt the GPS coordinates and determine Agent Baby's location and direction of travel. Further action may be required past this point.

    (Many thanks to Agents Smillia and Kakuzen, without which this would have never gotten off the ground. As it stands I am more than prepared to release this as a 'fan mission', playable in the very near future, completely outside of the client.)

    Keep your voice down! I definitely did NOT lose him. He's just... Not where I left him.

    Whelp. Guess I'd better finish those visuals. Thanks all!

    Mission is live in the client!

    Edit to add: the second puzzle had some errors in it that were only fixed today (11/14). If you've been having issues, give it another look and try again. :)

    So, the third part of this mission has an error in it, and I don't think it's been fixed yet but I know that you can't solve it until you get to it due to the particular nature of the clues surrounding this ciphertext... Here's the correct text, sorry for any confusion.

    As a matter of fact, I cannot figure out the first puzzle of the baby's mission, that is the password for criptobin
    I memorized the four-digit numbers from the hand-written message, but do not know how to get a password from them. These numbers do not seem to be shifted into ASCII codes as they range from 3981 to 4209. Any hint?

    The four digit numbers aren't the only information given on that note. Make sure you are utilizing all resources to find an answer.

    I'm glad you liked the first puzzle, and would like to apologize in advance for any upcoming frustration. <3

    Agent Enix reporting in.

    Requesting further help from Agent Middipper. Agent Enix currently stumped by "additional hidden information" A. Middipper is talking about.

    Besides apparent document data corruption in the upper part of the image and Agent Murphy writing her name wrong, there seems to be nothing out of the ordinary for me.

    Requesting immediate help.

    Agent Enix, over and out.

    Agent Enix,

    I regret to inform you that Agent MidDipper was KIA in Operation DARKAVALON. I would be more than happy to assist in their stead. The first step to solving any particularly difficult puzzle is to list out all information that you're given (whether you think it pertinent or not) in a different format. I'm fond of bullet point lists. What information is contained in the note that Agent Murphy provided?

    The obvious answer is - e-mail. I send a few e-mails on it but had no respond.
    Out of ideas atm. Letter is looking quiet simple and I don't understand what additional info should I looking for.
    Asking for help.

    codex-13 Senior Agent

    Email should be responding... let me see if I can fix it real quick, but in the meantime I'll PM you what the response would have been.

    Edit: Fixed it, and made sure the email got sent. Good luck!

    Alright I got it :) pretty fun how I was misslead.

    But now I am stuck again. What mean "determine the public transport AND the direction?"
    I determined public transport and direction. But what should I enter?

    I'm getting server not found when using the cryptobin url
  19. codex-13

    codex-13 Senior Agent

    Right, that's because cryptobin is dead. That needs to be fixed...
