[Interest Check] Cypher

Post by Maxx[2.0]ine » Thu Apr 09, 2020 11:16 pm

Ugh, yet another awful title from me...

But, anyway, I had half an idea for a roleplay, but before I put any proper effort into crafting, I wanted to see if anyone would be interested.

I was thinking, a plot revolving around a bunch of codes would be cool. Base64, Caesar Shifts, Vigenere Ciphers... A bunch of stuff like that. I would, of course, leave links to decoders for the different types of code and ciphers that I'd use, people would just have to work out which it is I use. And if they can't decode something, that just means it's info that their characters can't access.

As for plot, I was thinking maybe there's some kind of secret? Or maybe the characters are trapped somewhere? That's not something I'm entirely sure about at the moment (I literally thought of this about ten minutes ago, so give me some slack, lol).

But, I think this would be cool. That could be because I'm a bit of a nerd, but... Oh well. If this sees any interest, I'll make sure to come up with a proper plot and everything ^-^

Here's some taster code, lol:

Edit: I got part of a plot now. A series of murders had taken place in [TownNameHere]. The only clues are codes left at the scene. Our characters are somehow related to the murders. They somehow get trapped in the murderer's hideout place. Needs a bit of expanding, but it's a start, lol.

Easter egg on an Easter Sunday lol. I can't believe I didn't see this before, I like it! The decoding gives it an extra level of immersion.

@Gecko
It's cool that you bothered with my little Base64 easter egg, lol. I'm glad you like this!

Just need a couple more people and this will actually be able to start, lol.

Sorry if you all find me tagging you like this annoying, but would any of you be interested in this?

It looks really neat but I'm afraid I've got enough commitments at the moment :( I'll definitely read along though!

Alright! I hope I didn't annoy you with tagging you in this, I was just tagging a few people I thought would be interested, lol.

Well, there is a cracker in my character vault that I could dust off.

She specializes in Enigma, but has also made very good progress with the Voynich Manuscript.
