I’m using the method shown in the spoilers (I’d worked that bit out myself) I’ve tried putting in the “answer” but it still says I’m wrong. Any other hints please??
I’ve Seen the spoiler clues and still have no ideas. Is this a translation???
This important puzzle is a fairly straightforward 'decode the cipher' one. The cipher is the 8 character line at the top of the page, and the cipher key is the 3 rows of characters in the bottom third of the page. The light-colored designs in the middle of the page and bottom right corner are decorative and can be ignored. The answer is ultimately a common 8-letter English word, and below are graded hints leading to the solution.
Spoiler!Continuing with the remaining characters yields the answer below. DO NOT CLICK IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO KNOW THE ANSWER !!!
Spoiler!Once you solve it, remember this cipher and the characters of it, as it is used a couple more times throughout the book and you will need to refer to it again in the future!
ha! i immediately searched for sanskrit and bengali alphabet to translate
