  1. A couple that went in on a wing and a prayer so only time will tell!
    Many thanks, Prolixic, I’ve constructed some amazing words!

  2. That took a lot of work and even overnight cogitation, but I eventually got a completed grid so could start the decryption process. It would have been a very difficult challenge without the supplied table and it was still fun to do.
    All done and answer submitted. Just hope I haven’t missed anything.
    Thanks Prolixic

  3. As some solvers seem to be having difficulty with the Caesar 13 translation I have added a special spreadsheet which can be downloaded from the puzzle page.

  4. I found this harder than most MPPs, but am often amazed how “sleeping on it” seems to allow previously impossible looking clues to be cracked. In this case it took several “overnight cogitations” to complete it!

  5. Not at all sure of some of my answers…..I like to think of it as my being creative…..but I shall put in an entry and wait and see.

    Thanks to Prolixic and good luck to all.
