In order to navigate the puzzle, you must type in a code (in lowercase) at the end of the text in these boxes (after the #) and copy and paste the entire link into your browser's URL bar.
So if you found the code to be mourn, the resulting URL will look like this:
The main steps in the puzzle use 6-letter codes, but other codes may be used for certain steps. Now how do you get these codes?
The main cipher used throughout the puzzle is a word-letter number cipher. The first number is the word to look for, the second number is the letter in the word.
The source text for each step is found somewhere on Neopets.com (but can also be found on approved fan-sites! NOTE: None of the steps involve any other petpages linked on my portal). Having Mourn "examine the card" will give you the guidance you need to find the source text. You need both the cipher (which can be the main cipher OR one other cipher introduced later) and the correct source to get the right code, which MUST be typed in lowercase.
According to the cipher, based on this source text, you look for the 10th word, 3rd letter (m in "come") and then the 2nd word, 2nd letter (o in "hooray"), and so on. If done correctly, it should spell out a 5-letter code that was mentioned above.
Look for the to save your cards and track your progress in your current session ONLY (refreshing the page will clear the icons!). To "save" your progress for another time, note down the URL of the step you were last on. As long as you wrote down the corner letters preceding the step, you can continue anytime.
Be creative, feel free to use any means necessary to find the source text. Good luck!

Tiffy: Hiya! You've stumbled upon Mourn's Enigma, a mini user-created puzzle project I've been wanting to put together for a long time. Your goal is to reach the end. Think of it as a scavenger hunt, with ciphers and different source material. Everything can be found on the site. Feel free to collab and share hints, but the fun part is figuring things out. Completed or not, I'm always open to listen to your thoughts and feedback.
