I tried redeeming it over at Adobe - they have 24 character redemption codes (mixed alphapetical and numeric) that give you a product serial number once for Elements, for instance. It accepted the code, but then said it was invalid. Bummer. :/

Hmm. Looks like a games authorization key.

 

24 characters is now in the "too long" range for normal steam/gog keys.

 

 

Not too long for an old-style CD keycode, which first came to mind when 'authorization key' was mentioned. 

 

Looking at original NWN and Mask of the Betrayer books, CD keys are seven strings of five characters, though all capital.

 

What this could mean for a game in 2018, I have no idea.

Hey! What is the discord for Deadfire ? I want in!

https://discordapp.com/invite/obsidian ^^

 

I thought that was exclusive to Obsidian Twitch subs? Or am I wrong?

 

When Frog Man asked what their Discord was, I set out to find the answer, and within a few minutes I was on it. I assure you I didn't stop along the way to subscribe to anything. Currently there's like seven people online who are subscribers, and 85 who aren't, not counting Obsidian employees. Now let's call this settled and get back to interpreting weird strings.

Hmm. I tried plugging them in to all the URL shortener sites I could find but most didn't work and others were just really random sites. I didn't find any code redemption area on the Obsidian portal or THQ Nordic. The Versus Evil site didn't load for me so I didn't try there. I don't think Paradox has a code redemption page either but I looked anyway. I know they aren't involved with Deadfire but I just wanted to be thorough.

I don't get it. They've already announced the date.

 

This is really odd. Don't we have any code breakers here? Get this thing going.

It certainly could be a countdown to.... something.

One more code and we'll be able to make a 6x6 grid.

 

Only 4 vowels in that many consonants makes it pretty unlikely that they're spelling anything in English.  Could be building toward a scrambled full url-- pulling "HttpS" and "www" out makes the vowel-consonant balance a bit more reasonable.

Maybe they are character/build seeds for the beta.

The bestiary entries have been posting every Wednesday since they started.  Assuming we don't find anything else in other images, there are potentially 8 more bestiary-related codes before release.

 

Those are also the only ones with an arguable "order" to them.  The THQ code and Deadfire Release date code don't fit as neatly into a sequence.  

 

I still suspect each code is a standalone clue.  While they all may lead to pieces that can be put together later, there probably isn't much to be learned by mashing together a pile of alphanumeric strings and seeing what sticks.

Each segment has a character that could be considered unique, i.e. the number 6 in the otherwise letter-only sequence “BtF6nW”.

I really have no idea

- no repeting diagrams, so probably not playfair cipher
- there are more than 5 different characters, so it's not polybius cipher
- is not divisible by 5, and doesn't seem to be 0/1 encoded, so it's unlikely to be Bacon cipher
- there are no '=' signs, so it's unlikely to be Base64
- it doesn't look like cipher text from ADFGVX cipher (but could be used for it's matrix?)
- it's not rot1..rot13..rot20 (checked)
- it doesn't look like Vigenère cipher

- it could be substitution cipher... but not enough data for frequency analysis (although have no idea how to do that analysis anyway)
- maybe the currently revealed groups could be the matrix for this cipher? But in this case, besides the grid we would also need the keyword, ciphertext itself and the 6th group:

BtF6nW
w6Pd2u
SHbEXB
cCedpo
8twCgw
(6th group)

Nice work!

I tried doing subsitutions. I assumed the numbers could be blanks. So I started with "Pd" (w6Pd2u) as it would be a short word, and I assumed the word must start with either A, I or O (I'm also assuming the text is in English). All I could get was the word "as", by moving the letters 15 "steps" along the alphabet. Using that method on the other characters created no meaningful words however.

But then again, I'm not sure of the point of the numbers and I didn't factor in the use of capital letters.

Maybe (hopefully?) we need a 6th group to make everything clear?

I'll get right back on this, as soon as I find a post in MaxQuest's history that doesn't make me feel like a neanderthal.

Checked the link and that one seems to have merit. But how to crack it without any clues to keyword, I do not know.

If the keyword was Deadfire or Obsidian, would it return anything?
