The Time Paradox Code

Thanks to MMK, we have the code from the new Time Paradox book decoded. It has no spoilers from the book, so it’s safe to read! It’s a series of communications between Opal and Vinyaya, with Opal begging for an early release from prison.

You can read the first part of it below, and you’ll find the rest of it on the codes page.

From the collected correspondence of Opal Koboi. A series of letters between Opal Koboi, inmate number 1 100 0 101, Atlantis maximum security penitentiary, and Wing Commander Vinyaya, Haven Council.


My dear Wing Commander,
While I realize that my first probation hearing is not due for four hundred years, I feel that it would be in the peopleโ€™s best interests to release me before then. After all, the humans are becoming more sophisticated daily and a genius such as my self will be needed to ensure that fairy technology remains superior to human technology.

Click here to read the rest. Thanks again MMK!

  6. Bwahahahahah!!! Thanks, MMK! Damn, Opal was funny! Seahorses, huh? Wait till Foaly hears this!

  7. The numbers were an interesting thing to look at, in my opinion. When I translated them, I actually had a different route- instead of the circles and blocks being zeroes and ones, I interpreted them like Roman numerals presented one digit at a time. The 1 here was a 5, and the 0 was a 1 to me… So it would’ve been like, V-VII-I-VIV, or like 5-7-1-9. Did anybody else go that route? I just wanted to chime in on that.

    I took the numbers to be binary code. Like 1 100 0 101 translated to 1405. That made sense to me because the People are such a technology oriented race, it seemed they’d use the standard computer system.

  9. I agree with marie_svenson,sith.  I translated it the same way.

  10. I just noticed something; in Koboi’s last letter it should read “cries every night over HER severed tail . . .”  No offence to MMK at all!  In the US version it’s on pg 84.

  11. About the numbers:  I think it’s most likely binary, but I left it as 1s and 0s just in case…Techgal:  You’re right- Oops.  I translated it into my notebook, and then quickly typed it onto FG, so I guess I’m lucky that’s the only mistake there was.  Thanks for checking!

  12. Ahaha! Thanks! I loved Wing Commander Vinyaya!

  13. Movie possibly?

  14. MMK, I really, really hate to seem so pedantic, but I got seahorse tails, not tears. Thought I should point it out.

    how do you decode the code is there like a decoder key or is it just guesses. Oh yeah opal is crazy well she always was but now shes giving personalities to seahorses made of chewed cardboard. Coo-koo

  16. There’s a decoding key. I found it upon reading “The Artemis Fowl Files” and have decoded every key except for this one, because the numbers threw me off. Glad I looked it up instead ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sad Minerva Paradizzo was not in the story, though.

  17. i wonder why they put the begginning in twice in the book. i was looking thru the book and it showed the same thing that it said on pages 1 to 6 (or even further on) on pages 209 to 214

  18. oh haha thats so funny!
