    I've ran it through some tools, they didn't work. Are we doing it right by substituting the symbols with letters?

    Already noticed it during leg4... thought it might be a hint to something in leg4... but leg4 was a different game altogether...

    @Anorion What exactly do you mean by " More Right Letters " ??? Can't seem to get anything...

    the spacing is accurate
    it is not syllables, just plain old text
    there is a twist though
    hint: the twist subverts one of the most basic approaches of solving substitution ciphers

    1. does this twist explain why you have so many two letter words together?
    2. do the letters map to a meaningful english sentence or some non grammatical sentence?

    1. yes
    2. yes, a meaningful sentence that explains the twist itself
