Alright, Kdowns has been eliminated. TWIE's mutiny decision will be posted soon.

TWIE has chosen not to mutiny, meaning McMenno is the only person on Purple are receives the Safety Token.

As per the rules, both Blue and Yellow have 4+ members, and will each vote someone onto the Purple Team through majority vote. Safety Token holders are immune. If there is a tie, McMenno will be able to choose whoever he wants to join him, excluding Safety Token holders. You have 24 hours to cast a public vote in your team's Private Topic. You can not change your vote after posting it.

Failure to cast a vote will result in a self-vote and an activity strike.

Please welcome the new Purple Team! JDGA and Cheery Dog have been voted out of the Blue and Yellow Teams respectively. McMenno still retains the Safety Token for Purple.

Audiogram


You didn't think we'd let you out of here without one last audio-based challenge, did you? This is an even tougher version of the "Melody-Cypher" Fortress. Today's challenge functions similarly to a standard cryptogram, where each letter in a sentence is replaced by a different letter, number, or symbol. However, this time, each letter has been replaced by a wacky sound effect.

When your team is ready to begin, you will receive a link to a 52-second audio file. The sound clip has 51 sound effects, with any repeated sounds representing the same letter of the alphabet. Each sound effect varies in length, with some being a second long and some being a small fraction of a second. Sound effects group together represent letters in the same word, while a silent space of roughly one-second is placed in between different words. The sentence you are solving for has no punctuation.

It may sometimes be difficult to tell whether two adjacent sound effects are two different letters or part of the same sound clip. However, all sound effects appear adjacent to enough different sounds that you have adequate information to properly distinguish all of the sounds. As usual, no outside resources of any form are allowed. Since the Blue Team has one more member than everyone else, they must sit at least one person out.

You have 72 hours to complete this challenge. Once you believe your team has solved the cryptogram, post it in your team thread, bolded. There is no penalty for a wrong answer, but you won't be told which letters are wrong, and your time will not stop until you post the correct phrase. The team that solves the cryptogram correctly in the fastest time will be safe from the Fortress, and will advance to the Final Challenge. This means that anyone currently holding a Safety Token is automatically in the Final as well. Both losing teams will send a player into the Fortress through the standard selection process, where the loser is eliminated and the winner will have one final opportunity to mutiny to the other losing team.

Please coordinate with your teams in your Private Threads and notify a mod when you would like to begin.

So there are at most 26 different sound effects that appear a total of 51 times, right?

The cryptogram will be 51 characters, yea.

But Johnny Bananas as shown above, is, of course the biggest character.

Yeah but there are at most 26 different sound effects, one for each letter, right? It's not like we're going to have to deal with two different things being, say, S?

That is correct, all instances of the same sound effect will represent the same letter, and no letter is represented by more than one sound effect.

Alright results.

Purple Team...

Spoiler:
Yeah, there's no way they were going to win anyway. So yeah - Purple you're sending someone in.


Yellow Team...

Spoiler:
Finished in a super-impressive 26 minutes!


Blue Team...

Spoiler:
Finished in a super-impressive 27 minutes! Unfortunately, it was just slightly less super-impressive, and Blue Team will be sending one member to the Fortress to face off against a Purple Team member. Yellow Team has won and is all safe! And Safety Token holders are safe (unless they volunteer)!
