In which one travels to Noon.

Solved: 2018-06-02


The athenianmurders page of Phase I.

Each hint in this phase works in isolation, though the second reinforces the first:

  • At noon: Should be read as “@noon”, which is a reference to the email address for the newsletter, “noon” presumably also refers to Port Noon in this context. The fact that the last clue is not capitalized can also help make the “At” stand out.
  • We Await S.T.E.: A reference to The Crying of Lot 49, in which the phrase “We Await Silent Trystero’s Empire” is featured prominently. Not a necessary clue, but a useful one as the book focuses on a secret postal service called Trystero, indicating mail is relevant to this phase.
  • ‘somoza’: The password that must be sent to to get the appropriate response. The quotes indicate that it must be sent verbatim.
  • indicate your choice: Not really a hint, since the choice is rather clear when it is presented.

To solve this phase one need only send an email with the word “somoza” in either the subject or the body to The reply should be instant and is detailed on the next page.

The hints from the in-game elements of the previous phase can also be used to solve this phase. notaworm points to We Await S.T.E., and thus to email. boarwords and worldbull can be combined to read “The title At the beginning”, and Cultist Simulator was originally titled “noon”. The sentence then becomes “noon At”, which is functionally equivalent to the “At noon” of the /athenianmurders/ page.
