    Clicking on a potato in Selchar will give you a riddle asking you to take potatos to Dusty, Aquarius, Mort , Rich etc.
    These are all linked to potatos in cities
    Do this and the end result = the code above

    JP showed up to get us going again.

    "How have the potatoes been changing the past few days?"
    everyone: growing
    "What does that mean?"
    "What could they grow into"
    "I'll let you guys ponder that"
    "Keep in mind, 2 ^8 is not the limit" (3rd time saying this)
    "And look at the jigsaw puzzle solution" https://wynncraft.com/puzzle/img/jp.jpg
    "You guys seem to be balantly ignoring what it shows"
    "That's Ragni, right? Does it look like that now? What does it look like at the moment?"
    everyone: potato
    "Exactly, there's a potato. Now put two and two together"
    everyone: potato grows into altar
    "Is that an altar? Not really. The potatoes do not turn into altars, no. That is also not an altar. But now you guys are back on track"

    What is the structure, and why are the potatoes growing into it?

    I found out that 2^8 is the limit of extended ASCII character formats.

    Rather than thinking about JP's hint as the build height of minecraft (2^8 = 256), we need to think about it as the limit of ASCII characters. Perhaps this means that the cipher does not use extended ASCII.

    Someone who knows a bit more about ASCII please continue this knowledge and find something amazing

    It won't be a Caesar cipher since there are symbols in it.

    first guess was that guilds would have custom banners, and their claimed territories will have those marked into those city looking thingies

    Hey, Has anyone tried ENcoding the text? Decoding and encoding are essentially the same process done in opposite directions, so perhaps we could do it in the opposite direction?
