The Octothorpean Order
They are a mysterious secret society, known only by their symbol. You are investigating them, unraveling their secrets. They try to hide in plain sight, leaving messages to each other in codes and riddles. But you have found one message—and one leads to othe#s.
Sort of. This is an online puzzlehunt, a game in which teams of people solve puzzles. It can be a tough game to get into; puzzlemakers might assume that you recognize some strange codes, certain ciphers. Since they assume you recognize these things, they don't necessarily label those things in their puzzles. This puzzlehunt doesn't assume that you recognize these th#ngs.
If you don't want to just dive right in, there are some things that can get you started:
- Anatomy of a Puzzle Walks you through the steps of one "puzzlehunt-style" puzzle.
- Puzzazz: How to Solve Puzzles has instructions for solving many kinds of puzzles and even puzzlehun#s.
