AWS Quest
« on: March 10, 2018, 08:57:10 PM »
Creating a thread here because I've been poking away at the Amazon Web Services puzzle trail (brought in part by Lone Shark Games) off and on, and could use a second set of eyes in a place where conversations are moderately convenient.

The introductory blog: https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/join-the-aws-quest-help-me-to-rebuild-ozz/
Google Doc I've been tackling the more content-heavy puzzles: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1OFvY0kqA1Qkz8kQpcyoDlr_7jwyJGmGiTfGm7TOLUls/

Puzzle #1: Audio (unsolved):
Spoiler: show
If you check out the AWS podcast linked in the article, the tail end of the podcast mentions a "word of the day" that sounds vaguely like "kwivne erol"


Puzzle #2: Spheres (unsolved)
Spoiler: show
Bunch of AWS-adjacent Twitter accounts started tweeting what look to be cryptic crossword clues, decodable under ROT ciphers of either 14 or 20. They're still adding new ones, with "Amazon Spheres" (of influence, eh?) being the term that shows up the most.

Ones that I found so far:

I created a Google Sheet for this since it's obviously going to get cumbersome quickly, it's linked above.


Puzzle #3: Comments (unsolved)
