Theories

  2. Q9P = WHO/WHY
  3. Q9SA2 = WHICH/WHERE/WHOSE
  4. DK1 = AND
  5. S9 = IS
  6. TD9 = WAS
  7. JLV9SARKW = PRESIDENT
  8. PO = ON

  1. Playfair cipher? (this goes with the "square" in the flavortext) Also 26+10 = 36
  2. QIL, QIV, QUB, QIY, QII all appear.

Placement of IC

  1. E? goes to LA VI BA YA YI VT I4 (LAVIBYT4) - all must be colinear with E then
  2. 8 different letters too much to fit E in column with SI9 - must be same row
  3. This means A not in same column as SI9 - IC to SA not just a vertical shift
