[0602] Career Opportunities

  • Ye Thuza: Kyaw Ne Min was one of the most corrupt and brutal generals of the Burmese army. He was a horrible human being, and his debauchery got worse with each passing week!
  • Ye Thuza: One day he even dared to accuse my innocent little sister of a crime which she had never committed!
  • Ye Thuza: But then, the next day, he suddenly vanished from the face of the earth! Puff. As if he had never existed!
  • Ye Thuza: He was last seen leaving his mansion to go fishing. Naturally, his footmen turned the whole area upside down but they never found a single trace of him!
  • Dorothy Cambridge: What’s this?

The Book of Woo – Revisited

The Book of Woo, page 1 Most of you will remember our strip #500, The Book of Woo. We created four illustrated pages, inspired by the Voynich manuscript, which show strange illustrations next to a cipher text. Despite the big effort of some of our readers, the cipher text has not yet been deciphered. The comment section of the strip contains almost 400 comments with more or less valuable information for anybody who is interested in the challenge.

However, thanks to our reader Foogod, there is now a much better place to find concise information about the Book of Woo, the Book of Woo Wiki! At the moment, you can find pages about the following topics there:

Foogod also created a computer font that can be used to write all the glyphs found in the Book of Woo. The font looks really good in my opinion and it could also be used for magic formulas or other things like that. Click here to download the Book of Woo font WooGlyph Sans!

WooGlyph Sans, the Book of Woo font

If you have a look at the Wiki page for theories about the encrypted text, you will see that there is strong evidence that the character which looks like “Z”, and the corresponding character which looks like “~”, is some kind of space/suffix marker/dash character instead of a regular letter. This would reduce the relevant alphabet to 14 letters, plus the special “oPo” character.

I have decided to give you a little hint. The following word appears in the plain text:

ENGLISH: Potbelly Hill | GERMAN: Bauchigen Hügel

That means if the plain text is in English, the word is “Potbelly Hill”, if the plain text is in German, the word is “Bauchigen Hügel”, if the plain text is a mixture of English and German, the word is “Potbelly Hill” or “Bauchigen Hügel”. It should be quite easy to determine on which page. I hope this will generate some debate about the supposed content of that page.

I have also decided to send Satsuoni a poster package for providing the first decryption step and further significant contributions to the discussion. I will also send Foogod a poster package for setting up the Book of Woo Wiki and creating the Book of Woo font. Don’t forget that I will pay the person who is able to provide a decipherment that’s sufficiently close to the plain text a reward of $300. Send your decipherment attempt(s) to novil@gmx.de.

Results of the fanart contest 2014 – Part 1

Our yearly Sandra and Woo and Gaia fanart contest was once again a huge success! We even received more submissions than last year, 68 pieces of artwork in total! Because of that I decided to present all drawings in three separate updates. On Sunday, 6 July 2014, I will post the submissions that reached the places 25 to 13. On Wednesday, 9 July 2014, I will present the top 12, including the six winners of prize money. I can already promise that the drawing of this year’s main winner is absolutely breath-taking! :) I hope that none of the artists listed below is sad that he didn’t make it into the top 6. There’ll be another chance next year and I may also introduce two special awards for the funniest resp. the most innovative submission.

The following submissions are ordered alphabetically. The artists’ names are colored red if a link to their personal website is available. Show your support by visiting the artists’ websites and/or writing a comment in the comment section of this blog post!
