Ive only just now seen the “coded message “ in Grim Fawley’s journal and in Penelope‘s background. Does anyone have any idea what they are? Or are we needing to wait until there’s more information in the game given

    Someone posted on these forums that they think it's 3 number references to book passages. Like section, page, word.

    I wrote them out and tried comparing them to the other items in the Mystery registry but none of it seemed to correspond. At first I thought "dinner at 8" might be a code for the cipher but I'm leaning towards it was more of a PS now.


    Side note: It would be pretty awesome if they gave us a puzzle to solve that was randomly generated to prevent someone from posting the answer on reddit.

    I just got my coded Message today, I think I read it has something to do with the care for magical creatures textbook. I plan to do more research tomorrow.

    IS this requiring access to the real books, because there are so many different versions?

    @GrumpyDragon99 As cool as that would be, I believe you're right that the varying versions and translations would make that impossible.


    @Overflow4487 Curious to know if you were able to confirm you read this or not? Seems odd with both being from Slytherin that they would use that particular book as a reference.

    @CytopeAchen maybe that’s why they chose that book... Lol

    @CytopeAchen I did look and confirmed you will need a 2017 edition of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them to decode the messages. I didn’t look at the spoiler to see what the message says...so I may be about to head to my local bookstore for a peek :)

    @CytopeAchen Dinner at 8 is the hint to decod the Ceasar Cypher.

    Actually, I think it's a Vigenere cipher and not a Caesar Cipher

    It's a Caesar cypher, it is based on going back the same amount on each letter, so the only key you need is that number.

    From what I read, Vigenere would require a more complex method.
