Some challenges were rather unique, but I will be going through 1 challenge from this category.

Based Crow (Common)

Crow talk, anyone speak it?


We are provided with this ciphertext. After some Googling, I came across this language called Crow Language which originated from a video game titled Catastrophe Crow.

We can find this cipher:

Crow Language

We just need to enclose it with flag{} to obtain the flag.

Flag: flag{catastrophiccrowtastrophe}

Discord 1 (Rare)

Try to find the flag if you can :). Use the "&&discordr" to get started!

We are given a Discord bot named Phalerovia. By typing in &&help, we are given this list of commands:


By typing in &&discordr "role please", the bot returns us with a hex string: 6f6e6c792062696e617279


Converting this hex to plain text, we get "only binary". Following which, I typed in &&discordr "only binary" and received this: 0110001001100101011001010111000001011111011000100110100101101110011000010111001001111001010111110110001001101111011011110111000001011111011011110110111001101100011110010101111101100010011011110110111101110000

which ended up being a dead end.

I retraced my steps and converted "only binary" to binary form and got: 01101111 01101110 01101100 01111001 00100000 01100010 01101001 01101110 01100001 01110010 01111001

I typed in &&discordr "01101111 01101110 01101100 01111001 00100000 01100010 01101001 01101110 01100001 01110010 01111001" and received a new role in the Discord channel, and following which, I saw the flag in a new channel.
