I'm too distracted by how his codpiece is clipping through the edge of the drum. 

 

Neat way to show off the lighting effects, though.

Tried to apply this cipher: http://practicalcryptography.com/ciphers/baconian-cipher/



#Attempt1
- discarded digits
- 0 for lowercase; 1 for uppercase;
- used baconian substitution table:

A = 00000 I/J = 01000 R = 10000
B = 00001   K = 01001 S = 10001
C = 00010   L = 01010 T = 10010
D = 00011   M = 01011 U/V = 10011
E = 00100   N = 01100 W = 10100
F = 00101   O = 01101 X = 10101
G = 00110   P = 01110 Y = 10110
H = 00111   Q = 01111 Z = 10111

10101 01001 10111 01000 00010 01100 0
  X     K     Z    I/J    C     N

#Attempt1b
- discarded digits
- 1 for lowercase; 0 for uppercase;
- used baconian substitution:

010 10 1 01 1 001000 101111 11011 00111
01010 10110 01000 10111 11101 10011 1
  L     Y    I/J    Z     ?    U/V


#Attempt2
- discarded digits
- 0 for lowercase; 1 for uppercase;
- used separate mapping for J and V:

A = 00000 I = 01000 Q = 10000
B = 00001 J = 01001 R = 10001
C = 00010 K = 01010 S = 10010

  V     J     X     I     C     M


#Attempt3
- 0 for lowercase; 1 for uppercase; 2 for digits
- J combined with I, V combine with U (like in baconian table):

A = 000 I/J = 022 R = 121
B = 001   K = 100 S = 122
C = 002   L = 101 T = 200

I am just trying to guess what they are teasing. Outer Worlds announcment? It seems weird, if they could announce anything new Pillars related.

Seems really weird and niche to be a marketing thing. The only ones who'd spot this are the die hard nerds fans.

 

I'd rather say it's something tied to Deadfire for the fans. Some downloadable glowing pet parrot or whatever.

 

If it's anything that is.

It's clearly something. You don't stick weird codes in your marketting materials for no reason.

 

I would. Costs little to no money and is always fun.

Well, the didn't make it simple, that's for sure. And since the devs seemingly only lurk here and doesn't interact, it might be we won't get much further with it.

 

Or maybe they only drop hints at Something awful? Who knows.

Could be codes that get redeemed in game like the Cosmic Dog pet is supposedly said to work

 

I've also been wondering if that's the case.  The whole thing reminds me a little of how Bungie randomly hid emblem/shader codes all over the internet in preparation for the Destiny 1 release.

 

It might not be some clever cipher, but there's still some fun to be had playing scavenger hunt the next two months before launch.

Hehe, great minds.

 

I woke up this morning wondering if these code snippets were for the space puppy

Ok, I've got an informant that tells me that the cosmic dog console code doesn't look anything at all like the alphanumeric strings we've been finding.

 

Doesn't necessarily rule out the codes working in the console, but we're not going to know for sure until release when all the assets and scripts are in place.  The doggo code currently doesn't work with the beta either.

Fellow codeninja BeautifulBearInATutu pointed it out to me over on discord.

 

It looks to have been part of a Deadfire press kit that was posted here:

http://www.rpgfan.com/pics/Pillars_of_Eternity_II_Deadfire/

 

The press kit includes that image, as well as the physical mockup image with the cCedpo code that was first seen on the THQ Nordic site.

 

Since they were both part of a press kit, and their publishing and discovery are essentially whenever, it's really going to screw up any theories that require the codes to be in a specific sequence to make sense.

That screenshot was also in the Game Informer article but didn’t have the code embedded in it.

 

I’m wondering if it’s possible that we’ve missed some.

This post has like 20 leads on it.  It's our best bet since it looks like different press kits might have different codes in them.  Fun times!
