    Oh wow. The solving path for this one was absolutely incredible. I suppose one design goal was to make do with as few clues as possible? Anyway, thanks for an amazing puzzle.

    Thanks a lot Nikolai! I’m pretty happy with how the initial logic works. Having somewhat few clues was an intention but I also wanted to have a small (rot13) cnpxvat ceboyrz for the ending which was doable with the lonely clue. I found it interesting how the seemingly many other options won’t work due to the (rot13) angher bs gur erznvavat funcrf & pbaarpgvivgl so I decided against adding more clues. I hope the change of pace there wasn’t jarring. Cheers 🙂
