Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #3

Danny used to be a football player, so it can be assumed he wrote the message.

Once decoded, the message reads:

The person convicted, Sam Langstar, is in jail and Art believes she is innocent.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #3

Our first objective of the case is to find out who left a pair of spurs on top of Hank's car.

  • This indicates someone was challenging his position as king.

Chester's comment has an obvious code.

  • His clue is "one step behind the name of the ring" alludes to the heraldry ring which depicts a lion.
  • LION is the keyword.

In order to decode his message, read only the letters that are to the right of the letters in "LION".

Partial, severe calcination on head, right shoulder, and right arm.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #4

Ethanol was found in his system.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #5

He was extremely intoxicated at the time of his murder.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #6

Coarse sand was found on and in Hank's pockets.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #7

Body and facial abrasions caused by sand were created postmortem.

  • The killer dragged Hank through some sort of sand after murdering him.
  • His body was relocated either in an attempt to destroy it/evidence in the forge or to purposefully frame Sam.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #8

Other items found in the forge were a shirt, cape, pants, and boots, along with more sand.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #9

It can be deduced that Hank was thrown into the forge headfirst.

  • Head was severely charred
  • Body was slightly charred

The bottom of the page has a key for a book cipher which we will use in conjunction with the cut out book page.

The pattern in blue marker appears to be similar to that of the ten-sided die.

We can solve a book cipher in this document using the key at the bottom of Cameron's design.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #2

The first number refers to the line and the second number refers to the word in that line.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #3

Once deciphered, the message reads:

  • "FOLLOW THE TRAIL OF SIR EREC TO ENTER THE KINGDOM"

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #4

Eric starts out at the castle, then goes to the woods, Pirate Cove, and then the cave.

Use this die to map out the numbers in Chester's pattern on the expanded kingdom map.

The inscription was written down the length of the blade but then crossed out.

  • Wonder if there's a reason for that.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #2

The three symbols drawn with arrows underneath must be key to some sort of code in another area…

Shit's getting serious now. "The Green Knight" tried to break into Art's personal home.

  • I wonder why they wanted to get in her car first though…

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #2

Apparently, there's a VIP area in the faire, and Art wants our assistance in breaking in.

The word "Regicide" is underlined with a right arrow.

  • This is the key to the code at the bottom of the paper.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #2

Use the same method as before by locating the letters of "REGICIDE" and noting the letter to the right.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #3

Once deciphered, the message reads:

  • "TAKE IT. REMEMBER I HELPED YOU WITH YOUR BEAU."

Lynn reveals to Chester that she is dismantling the faire and he will no longer have his "artistic" ways there.

So, Lynn made arrangements to sell off the faire.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #2

It's obvious she is not the Green Knight then, as the Green Knight killed Hank to better the faire.
