Quote from paul.mueller on Saturday 22nd February, 2020, 16:12I don't know what to do with the plaid area. I have no idea about the 300. Tried to place the 4 solved letters on top, did not produce anything useful. Hope the letters are correct SSEN. Any hint for the 300 and the area.

Quote from Joy on Tuesday 28th April, 2020, 18:08Blocks 10-14, 1st horizontal line, have a bold line over them; ignore or concentrate on this and pursue?

Also, 90°Z i have nothing but Z (ascii), 300 = CCC Gr numeral or T = Roman numeral.

E, V, E maybe for the other 3 letters??

Please point us towards a creative and definitive direction 😃 TIA

Quote from paul.mueller on Friday 1st May, 2020, 00:39I had already put the book aside, but after reading your message, I tried again to solve this riddle and almost solved it.

First ignore the last row of the grid.

Project the width from the puzzles below to the grid. Now the bold line on top does make sense, it is an indicator for the needed space for the third puzzle.5 areas

[spoiler]columns 1-3, area shows the letter directly.[/spoiler]

[spoiler]columns 6-8, braille[/spoiler]

[spoiler]columns 10-14, no idea, do you have any clue[/spoiler]

[spoiler]columns 16-20, morse code[/spoiler]

[spoiler]columns 22-24, braille[/spoiler]
