Cut the pieces out (I photocopied and then cut to not destroy the original). You should end up with two banners in opposite corners that contain an hourglass and poke ball symbol. They will both have arrows pointing to/from the letters X and V, which are in reality not actually letters. These are two sequences, figuring out what the hourglass and poke ball represent will help you solve (vi). (hint, think simple mathematical operations)
I almost hate to say it that cutting and folding and wrecking will recur later on - oh you can copy the pages or draw various symbols out to recreate, but there's just something about CPP that encouraged me to treat it as Librarian's Almanacq and just get handy with the snippers
Not too tricky, I checked a couple of things on google once I’d finished to fill in a couple of clues that I didn’t manage to link e.g. tear drinker. What’s the view generally on looking up such things on google?
Also I wasn’t sure if the final answer was actually another step beyond that presented by vii or if there were any other hidden clues or messages within the pages.
Looking forward to doing the next one now, do they get a lot harder??
Wow, quite disappointingly I have the final answer to 0.2 literally within 2 minutes of opening the envelope and flicking through to see what was in it!
That shouldn't be possible, and in fact, Jack often lays traps on every page so that someone randomly following a path or making a random choice would almost certainly be wrong. It's worth it to go through each page in order. Jack is very open to feedback, so let him know about your experience. I remember only one of them (I think it was 0.5 or 0.6) that I was able to solve very quickly; for some reason I was just in the zone with that one, but for all the other ones, slow and steady won the race for sure.
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?
