In 2012, a secretive group calling itself 3301 began recruiting for “highly intelligent individuals” online. Candidates had to prove their skills in codebreaking, cryptography and computer programming by solving a complex puzzle dubbed Cicada. It required knowledge of steganography, contacts on the ground everywhere from Seoul to Sydney, and the ability to obtain a copy of William Gibson’s famous disappearing poem “Agrippa.” What was the purpose of the puzzle? No one knows, but many set out to solve one of the internet’s greatest mysteries. At the age of 15, Marcus Wanner became one of the few to crack the code. But the Cicada challenge didn’t end there. Suddenly, more mysterious codes appeared—including a 58-page book of runes known as the “Liber Primus.”

What was encrypted within the runes? Follow the band of online cryptologists deciphering “Liber Primus” in episode 2 of Cicada 3301:

Yo I know Celtic rune's when I see them also mixed with elvish or dwarf so I think it is a real language and a fake one

this was a publicity stunt by a TV show called person of interest. The show pilot was a super computer that had artificial intelligence could see the future and would help those wrongly accused of crimes. It would give out information in code through the internet. The puzzles stoped once the show was canceled and started when the show started

New arg found on 4chan/ reddit/ twitter. Started by a user named Mhk-Op.

3 nights ago, an image was posted to 4chan and reddit calling out to people to solve their puzzle for a job opportunity. A group of us has started to solve it as the creator continues to post more cryptic pictures. We started a discord server here [https://discord.gg/Xa4xhts](https://discord.gg/Xa4xhts) to collaborate. Here, we've compiled everything they have posted and what we know so far. Having as much help as possible is super important right now, as any idea can be a possibility.

What exactly is the point of cracking the code? Did they win something in the end! Did they get rich or something?
