I've got the first few months now, the art is gorgeous. I've opened up the first three - got stuck in the middle of the first month, solved the second one fine, and I'm working on the third one still. Each month so far has been very different, but you do need to solve the puzzles in sequence within the month.
I also found this recently and signed up. Good to see other people are interested in this too. I solved 0.2 and 0.3, but got stuck partway through 0.1. Anyone else stuck on 0.1 and want to share some ideas? (I briefly have looked at 0.4 and 0.5, but trying to finish out 0.1 before doing those)

I got a secret message for iv which told me which 4 items I'd need. I think I've identified which 4 items it is referring to in (vi), so I don't see what to use the secret message in (v) for. Past this, I assumed I use the coordinates of the 4 items I identified on the grid in (vii), but what then? There doesn't seem to be anything I can cleanly extract with that.
each box gives you one complete word...there are four words in the answer...and the phrase which results does make sense, it's the start of a much longer well-known puzzlw
Thanks, I realized I had the first one wrong last night when I got a phrase that made some sense but not enough to make me feel confident in my items, so went back and was able to figure out my error and get a more satisfying answer. So with that, I have now completed the first 5 mailings.
So for this one I'll be honest and didn't fully solve. I got shot, quay, synth, ways, tan, dent, earth (picture looks like a moon and earth), adore. The hint from (ii) led me to believe this was a mad gab and you had to say the words out loud to get what they actually meant. This is where I fell apart, I couldn't get much of anything except with tan, dent, earth, adore I read as "and enter the door" which seemed like a semi plausible partial answer. Using this I figured that the full phrase was probably referencing the keys in (iv). From here you'll wan't to use the phrase cut and rearrange for (v).
EDIT: So I didn't understand your comment about quay implying key until just now. I never knew that word was pronounced 'key', I always thought it was 'kway'. With that information I decided to try and decipher the rest of the message and now believe the first answer is fined. This would make the message "Find keys in the waste and enter the door" which I think is the correct answer as (iv) mentions picking through the wreckage.

diggitydoodog: I've had dubious documents for 2 years now and finally went to work on it. Would anyone on here be willing to PM me the answer or post it in a spoiler so I can check the solution?
