Elizabeth's letter
#1
EDIT: Might aswell throw in a spoiler warning here, so here it is *SPOILERS* ;)



I managed to decipher the letter old Elizabeth wrote to her younger self.

So I thought I'd might explain how I did it, since I don't have any other source than myself right now.

Anyway, here's the cipher board: http://imgur.com/bh6olnM,vj9Bfx3#0
And here's the letter: http://imgur.com/bh6olnM,vj9Bfx3#1

If you want to, you can try to decipher the cipher board, it's fully possible to do it by only looking at the picture. If you're lazy however, here's the solution (I obviously can't write the symbols, so I'll write the location instead):

A=A1
B=B3
C=C5
D=D7
E=E9
F=F11
G=G13
H=H15
I=I17
J=J19
K=K21
L=L23
M=M25
N=N1
O=O3
P=P5
Q=Q7
R=R9
S=S11
T=T13
U=U15
V=V17
W=W19
X=X21
Y=Y23
Z=Z25

You should see a pattern here by now :P

The thing is, there's very many symbols that resembles the letter 3 here, it is possible to tell them apart from each other, but it can be hard.

What isn't possible however, is to tell the 3 different ":" apart, it can mean F, H or X . So all you can do here is to try what suits best. The ":" can also mean "." and "-", which make it all more confusing.

Anyway, if you'd try to decipher it it will say:

"I am a code. I should probably be changed over for something much more official in the future. But I'll do as a stand-in for now I suppose."

EDIT: Changed the "or" to "for" as DidYouKnowGaming pointed out for me.

This shows that the developers actually forgot to change the letter.

That's all I have to say, I'll post this to the Bioshock Infinite trivia now :)

On our friend's settee, she told me that she really liked me
And I said, "Cool... the feeling's mutual"
We played old 45's, and said it's like the soundtrack to our lives
And she said, "True, it's not unusual" - then privately we danced
We couldn't seem to keep our balance... A drunken haze had come upon us

We sank down to the floor, and we sang a song that I can't sing anymore
And then we kissed, and fell unconscious...
I woke up the next day, all alone but for a headache
I stumbled out to find the bathroom...
But all I found was her, wrapped around another lover
No longer then is he our mutual friend

You say "or" was going to be "hor".

Given the way the sentence is structured, wouldn't it make more sense if that was "for"?

"I am a code. I should probably be changed over for something much more official in the future. But I'll do as a stand-in for now I suppose."

Thank you for correcting me :D At the time I deciphered that word I only thought ":" could mean H or X, so that's probably why :) anyway, I'll change it now!
