    Shouldn't it be:
    3-15-14-20-5-19-20: 4-15 25-15-21 20-8-9-14-11 25-15-21 3-1-14 2-5 1 23-18-9-20-1-1-18? 2-5-7-9-14-19 10-1-14-21-1-18-25 A-19-20 B0AA!

    ?

    Anyway, it was insultingly easy! You will have to do much better next time, mister Nigma

    Yes, going with "10-1-14-21-1-18-25 A-19-20 B0A0" would require some awkward retcon...

    Haha, obviously I forgot to check my sanity level spelling.

    3-15-14-20-5-19-20: 4-15 25-15-21 20-8-9-14-11 25-15-21 3-1-14 2-5 1 23-18-9-20-1-1-18? 2-5-7-9-14-19 10-1-14-21-1-18-25 A-19-20 B0AA! is right. But what does it translate to? There is a phrase/words its trying to spell.

    Yup, so blatantly easy I didn't realize what I was dealing with when I whipped open my encryption toy. Though your message in the Enigma code, using the key "AAR", would be

    Darn. I kinda liked Dancing with the StAARs. Other ideas:

    DespAARate Housewives (maybe I should use that one for a thread for someone in my Canada AAR...)
    SurvivAAR (each AAR should be titled SurvivAAR: <<province name in country>> for max effect)

    SurvivAAR: Texas. Relations with USA modded to be Neutral, so it's just you against Mexico.
    SurvivAAR: Krakow. Mod Prussian, Austrian, Russian cores, in no one's SOI.
    SurvivAAR: Tripoli. No mods.
    SurvivAAR: Israel. Release at start or mod to exist at start.
    Any other ideas?

    I could possibly rename it, nothing so far has been laid in stone with the name. Writing with the StAARs sounds pretty good, and plays off dancing/skating with the stars.

    And here I was, all sad at the end of a wonderful contest... Looks like I need to finish up Letters so I can prepare to enter this at full force! Also - am I the only one who is both pleasantly pleased and slightly surprised to notice how many amateur (or maybe... Pro?! :O ) cryptographers we've got here? Maybe there should be a Paradox Cryptography Club...

    I kind of like the contest name as is, actually - it reminds me of NaNoWriMo, for some reason.
