Alien Map Pawns

These will be used to track positions on the terrain map.

Intercepted Note

This was dropped by Theo and picked up by Jeremy.

The symbols in the octagon shapes represent numbers. Convert the "numbers" in Theo's list on the opposite sides to ascending numbers 1-11.

The numbers in the triangles must equal the sum of all touching octagon numbers.

The numbers must be written in sequence top to bottom ("start at midnight") and working clockwise ("work till the eleventh hour").

The new code is: 

  • 21, 24, 25, 30, 26, 18

We must now align this new code with the original one we had Jordan try and find the median (average between each two-digit sum).

  • 21 → 15
  • 24 → 06
  • 25 → 17
  • 30 → 04
  • 26 → 16
  • 18 → 12

Add each group together and divide by two to find the median. This gives us:

  • 18, 15, 21, 17, 21, 15

The word "octagon" precedes the coded message. 

Octagons have 8 sides. Shift the letters in the code backward by 8.

Once decoded, the message reads: 

  • "between two lone peaks south of a forest"

Using this clue to find Theo's location on the terrain map, we come up with:

  • S-16

Jeremy's Alien Codex

The symbols Jeremy found carved into things are similar to the ones on Theo's biotech sketch in Episode 3.

Jeremy's Letter

The emergency frequency is 319.315.

This number needs to be shifted by the number of the last sector Jeremy and Jordan were in before getting separated.

  • NACS is located in sector T-2.

Shifting the emergency frequency forward by 2 gives us:

  • 531.537

These are used to hold the map pawns.

You must punch out the small plastic pieces in the inserts in order to fit the pawns in comfortably.

Ration Box

There is a symbol from Theo on the back of the box.

Inside are more pawns and pawn holders for our terrain map.
