On twitter someone tweeted Peter if the first word was "Hold" and Peter confirmed it was. So does that help?

On twitter someone tweeted Peter if the first word was "Hold" and Peter confirmed it was. So does that help? 

This basically confirms the 10 11 12 is The theory.

Then I think singular 1's are O, 8 L and 25 is D

 

With 14 as A it looks a little like this.  

H o l d THE 7 E 4 9 15 E T T H A T 21 5 1 17 1 H THE 17 1 3

4 4 L 3 H T 7 15 A D 4 A 3 4 T 9 16 A 9 A 9 3 4 E E D 4 T T E 5
E 7 T 15 19 T H E 3 4 E 5 5 H 5 D E 15 7 5 5 H E 3 4 T H E 9 15 E T 6 15 3 4

The spaces only exist in the old e-ink Kindle version, so the lines will break. The spaces aren't official.

E 5 5 H looks like an interesting spot.  Only so many double letters out there 

 

The most common are: 

 

ss ee tt ff ll mm oo

 

It's not O, T, E, or L 

 

That leaves 5 as S, F, or M

Look at the first pattern and see how, say, the 11th letter and 25th letter of it fits the code...

The 11th letter is H.  And the first is O, which works with 1 = O, H = 11.

That being said, there's another O before letter 6, do I skip it? otherwise H = 11 doesn't work
 
O = 1
B = 2
V = 3
I = 4
O = 1
U = 6?
S = 7
L = 8
Y= 9
 
T = 10
H = 11
E = 12
Y = 9
 
A = 13
R = 14
E = 12
 
F = 15?
 
is this making any sense

Not only that but 10 11 and 12 are

The 11th letter is H.

The key is to take the first instance of each letter in the first pattern and assign that number to that letter.

Well, I am happy to have been a part of this in some way. 

 

Well done to all of you out there who are way better at this than I :)

Obviously, I am a fool unable to write even a simple brute solver :unsure:  :( Depressed. Nice work, Darmad.

The easy solution is sometimes way too complex for the over thinkers of the world ;)

Completed code.  Got lots of help reading everyone's ideas.

 

 

Hold the secret that broke the Knights Radiant.  You may need it to destroy the new orders when they return.

You guys almost figured it out on the first day, because we made it too easy. Sigh.

 

I've had a good chunk of the code solved on my computer since then.  ARGH!

So, what's the secret? :)

 

Go to the chapter 83 epigraph.  Record the first instance each letter of the alphabet occurs in that epigraph with the number of where it first occurs.  Then use this to substitute out the numbers in the code.

I had this sitting on my computer screen, and it started becoming a jumble of nonsense because I had done various substitutions and couldn't remember what went where anymore:
 

HOLD THE  SECR E T  THAT B R O 7 1 12 THE 1713

44G11 T 715142541434 T 916149149341212254 TT 125

127 T 1519 T 1112NEW1152512157W111234T11129151
2 T 61534

 

Thanks to Darmad for saving me from certain insanity.

Yes, that part I understand.  I was referring to the secret referred to in the message itself.

I had lots of help.  I spent 2 days just reading everything collected here! :)

 

I usually lurk, but this group inspired me to join in.  The idea came to me as I was falling asleep last night. I suggested it this morning and then ran with it. 

 

I tweeted Peter to confirm, but was trying to avoid giving away too much, so that other people could keep working it if they wanted.  Apparently, giving away the first word was too much!

Well, you gave away the 1st, second, fourth, and a bunch of other The's...  That's quite a bit more.
