The Umbroteca (enigma website)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The Umbroteca is a website where I post multiple enigmas for you, my beautiful people, to solve. The answers are usually salted and hashed, even if they are sent to the client. In other words, it is a website where no hacker can find the enigma answers dirtily; thus, use your brain!

 

To avoid cheaters, only one two answers are allowed per IP per enigma.

 

It will come in a format similar to the one below:

Quote

 

  • You are human... he is not human... he is not...
  • VOICE1.OGG
  • name ≡ radioactive decay
  • portuguese
  • final boss

 

 

In fact, that enigma was how this thread began and how, consequently, the website began.

Wrong answer.
 

 

Your goal is to answer the nine letters corresponding to the name of the entity dubbed in Portuguese. It's not the Icon of Sin.

Damn, and I thought trying to convert my friend's email form hex to ASCII was a pain.

 

How are we meant to select all of the text without either holding the left mouse button for ten minutes, or copying chunks of it and pasting them in a text document?

With a mouse triple click ;)

...Thank you.

 

After all of these years, I had no idea about triple clicks. In the great unlikeliness that we ever bump into each other in the real world, please do slap me.

 

I've got the file open in Audacity, and with no experience with the software, I'm struggling to obtain anything resembling human speech (not that I will even understand, I don't speak Portuguese). With that said, I feel that I could make an educated guess on what the boss is, based on the clues.

 

Spoiler

Nihilanth, in Portuguese of-course.

Sure. That's due to the base64 data. I'll change it for an Ogg Vorbis link.

Well. The correct answer will be here at around 02:00 AM UTC. At the time of this post it's 01:20 UTC (22:20 UTC-03:00). Just wait for it :)

 

Just, keep guessing! Who knows, one of the answers will be correct.

The inner machinations of this thread are an enigma.

 

Make another one some time, I didn't get a chance to try and work it out before it was solved!

Too late. I'm now editing the topic. This thread will become an umbroteca, a collection of shadows, mysteries, the unknown. Why a collection? Well, every day, I'll post an enigma, with a random numerical ID between 1 and 65536.  A collection of enigmas will then form. I should do a website for this kind of stuff.
