Sweet! Giant Bomb gets its first serial killer! I cant wait to see how this turns out!
Giant Bomb Mailbag: Numbers Station Edition
I'm thinking maybe you have to run
" First letters of all words in the Readme spell Cipher. Does that mean anything to anyone? "
gknova or gjnova through that cipher somehow. 6 letters 6 cipher words. maybe the 3 is the third game in the series? Something 3?
" well no other news outlet has had this, the twitters are not abuzz, so this is probably GB specific, I guess "
This site says it was postmarked Maryland so Bethesda/Fallout seems like a good guess.
I also got www.gjnova3.com (doesn't exist). Assuming the 3 is telling us to move each char over by 3, and can safely be removed, you get gjnova.com. That does not exist, either. The domains aren't even registered.
The first 3 letters also translate to jla - Command and Conquer?
" @Darktoad450: Only that we added it to the Caesar quote and ran the string of crap we came up with through a caesarian shift cipher. "The Caesar quote has me thinking Fallout3 New Vegas. The main bad guys built their base out of Caesar's Palace and run a slave trade. Could be a distress signal of some sort.
Looks like the next famous person is Francis Bacon http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis_Bacon#Works_and_philosophy
Best I can tell it's:
mod / movas / ixnov / asixn / ovasi / xnova / sixno / vasix / novas / ixnov / asixn / ovasi / xnova
Some of those n's may be m's, some of the v's may be d/b's
Using the same 3 letter crypto is garbage, I think the initial mod is part of the key.
Before it loops, a voice says "hell is purple"
