It is said an Eastern monarch once charged his wise men to invent him a sentence, to be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate in all times and situations. They presented him the words: "And this, too, shall pass away." How much it expresses! How chastening in the hour of pride! How consoling in the depths of affliction!

To not attract the attention of the mods, I would ask you to not spam the thread with binary/hex, you can put it in a spoiler.

Thank you

ANNOUNCEMENT

Because this game caught attention and a good number of people have joined it, I'm planning to make this a a regular event - twice or once a month - where regional or inter-regional teams and individuals can compete to complete the puzzle. All those who complete it will be ranked, posted here and 'awarded'. The project is still in the works so any input can be helpful.

Thank you

Are you going to be targetting (or even creating) a new region every few weeks, or are these future challenges just for fun?

This thread was formerly entitled "Watching from the shadows [an intriguing recruitment test]" and then "Watching from the shadows [THE TEST HAS BEGUN]". I would assume that this thread is no longer as recruitment-oriented as it once was, and has since devolved into a puzzle of much less consequence and just as much fun?
