Welcome, agents. Before you get started with Burn After Solving, please join us for orientation:
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, involves the word nerds at the National Puzzlers League. The Terrible Organization of Really Treacherous, Overtly Ingenious Super Evil-doers has set their sights on sabotaging them, but we need your help to figure out how. It seems involvement with the NPL has reshaped our data into puzzle format, but you can still check out the additional info provided by Agent Rasa here. (This link is not a puzzle.)
Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to thwart the plans of an enigmatic mastermind. The fate of puzzledom hangs in the balance.
You are authorized to recruit team members to assist you in carrying out your mission.
Your mission will begin on October 9, 2021.
Your handlers are Tortoise, Rasa, Neko, Cute Mage, Firetruck, Capital R, G2znii, Fraz, and Apocope.
