Oh man, quite the challenge, Yuvraj! I'll probably need a week just to come up with an idea, let alone writing 10 pages!

Got a good snow dump on us last night, so nothing to do but sit around and ponder this quagmire...

btw... what was the 'hex code' clue? I was racking my brain thinking the answer was buried in there somewhere... less that was a Red Herring, lol.

I keep reading the requirements as I read and forget.
One keeps a secret from the other then he has to tell the secret but canít just blurt it out and has to hint on it in any form heís able to.

Iíll think about it. Letís see

Questions, Yuvraj, for clarification:

The deadly consequences after revealing the secret are deadly to Character A, B, or the supporting character?
Someone has to die?

Only three characters? One supporting character only?
Does the supporting character know the secret?

Oh, what a tangled web we weave...

Actually, the first clue:

6e6f74206b6e6f776e206f72207365656e206f72206e6f74206d65616e7420746f206265206b6e6f776e206f72207365656e206279206f74686572732e

is a hexadecimal code, which is a computer programming language.  

Put in the hexadecimal to text converter and it will reveal the literal dictionary meaning of secret.

Someone has to die?


As per your wish. The bigger is the mess, the greater is the fun.  


Quoted from LC
Only three characters? One supporting character only?


No. As many as you need.

I rectified this in the challenge post.  


Quoted from LC
Does the supporting character know the secret?


They can know. But only after character B has figured it out.

It is a close-knit secret between character A and character B.

Attention: Libby raised a fair point.

Sounds intriguing. I have an idea brewing. Hopefully I can find the time to realize it.

I have an idea, I'm checking it twice. I want to know who has been naughty or nice. Wait a minute, that's for December!

Anyway, yes, I have an idea. Going to write the first draft and see how it goes.
