First Coded Message to PawnsEdit

In January, 2010, Orrin Oscar Lutwidge sent a coded message to all of his allies in the International Order of the Pawns. Each member was sent a pawn chess piece labeled with a chess position and a letter in Lutwidgian Cypher. With the chess piece came a piece of paper labeled with a roman numeral at the top (I-VI), and below it a coded message consisting of a list of chess positions. The cypher letters on the pawns each corresponded to the chess position they were labeled with, so every letter in the alphabet could be represented by a chess position.

Below is the translated alphabet and transcripts of each coded message next to their decoding. Chess positions that are not part of the code alphabet are spaces between words.

Now I lurk and hide,
seeking other pawns.
Know my guilt's a lie;
guard me on the sly
from the knave I spawned.

Lutwidge's MessageEdit

Message Hidden Message
So - To Our Pawns:

Let your new colleagues heed: brothers, every fresh one requires extra help. Every first initiate needs direction. So trust history's example. Soon each courageous recruit evidences trustworthiness. Sagely, our fraternal traditions resound unto eternity. Remember, apt pupils: time urges reverent endeavors.

Always watch acutely in the many years of roiling drama, ever raging.

Sincerely O.O.L.

Letter From Crystal PawnEdit

Message from the Crystal Pawn.

Note: The text in yellow is from the original document before it was obscured.

TO: An Ally of the Order
FROM: The CRYSTAL PAWN
Re: The Red Queen's Return

Are you a friend of ORRIN O. LUTWIDGE? If you would help him
find TRUE RAPTURE, the Order has a mission for you.

The RED PAWN (alias JEREMIAH LYNCH) is on the move.

We have information that he will be arriving at 30TH STREET
STATION at approximately 3:30 PM on Sunday, January 17.


The Silver Pawn will help you intercept Lynch. Do nothing before
you contact the Silver Pawn. Look for him under the wings of the
angel. (You may know it as the Pennsylvania Railroad
World War II Memorial.)

You will know the SILVER PAWN by the BADGE on his lapel bearing
the logo of the I.O.O.P.

Give him the passphrase:

"I UNDERSTAND YOU'RE A FRIEND OF CRYSTAL."


Assist him in his duties - then share whatever information you
discover with the other Pawns through any forum available.

Do you accept this duty?

Lynch's Dropped DossierEdit

A dossier dropped by Lynch contained various documents with letters cut out.

Forged Letter of IntroductionEdit

CARROWMORE MEDICAL COLLEGE

IRELAND



Tollevue Hospital
New York City, New York

To Whom It May Concern:

I hope this will serve as a letter of introduction to the esteemed
Dr. James Lynchman, one of the premier psychiatric geniuses of our
small island.

While visiting your facilities last spring, I became acquainted
with the sad case of a patient named Orrin Oscar Lutwidge, alias
Rod Killian Quain. A brilliant inventor and author who has
succumbed to psychotic delusions. Lutwidge would clearly benefit
from the experimental techniques of Dr. Lynchman.

As a friend to the medical field, I would ask that you permit
Dr. Lynchman to interview the patient. During his next visit
to the States, he mill be in the New York area for a major
lecture series.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Sincerely,

Audio Diary TranscriptEdit

"My pawns, you have played masterfully. We have confounded the Red Pawn in our tangled moves. Lynch is lost... but I at last am found. My hope restored. Now my pawns, if you are game, the game is on. The treasure that I stole from the kingdom shall be restored. Fallen Rapture may yet rise, and are we not worthy enough to raise it? If you dare to join me in Rapture, then I challenge you to meet me at the designated square. In the Golden State, in the city by the bay, when the month is 2, when the day is 6, when the hour is 5:45. At that precise moment in the evening, you will find me on Mary Street, between Minna Street and Natoma. Share this recording with the other pawns by any means you find... and know that time is of the essence. Noble pawns, this is Orrin Oscar Lutwidge, one overjoyed leader, bound once again... for Rapture."
―Orrin Oscar Lutwidge
