Clue 1


Translating the text will give you a hint how to proceed.




Clue 2


The colors are quite important.




Solution


In French, the colors translate to: Jaune (yellow) Orange (orange) Noir (black) Bleu (blue) Jaune (yellow) Orange (orange) Rouge (red) Noir (black) Read across: JON BJORN




Clue 3


If nothing is making sense, then you may be in the wrong language.




Clue 4


What are all of those colors' names... in French?





Clue 1


This cipher might be a bit of a tall order...




Clue 2


Exact heights are provided.




Solution


Each line is a rotation cipher using the corresponding number from the front of the card (the tower heights) to decipher it. The deciphered message is in French and must be translated to English. The resulting plaintext reads: (In French): La femme qui m'a reicrute a l'origine etait un agent qui s'appelait "licorne" (In English): The woman who recruited me originally was an agent called "Unicorn."




Clue 3


The numbers are much larger than you would normally see for this classic cipher type.




Clue 4


Once deciphered, you'll still need to translate.





Clue 1


The header "Compte sur nous" will point you towards where to start.




Clue 2


French isn't the only language present here.




Solution


This puzzle is actually a self-referential index, with each number reflecting that letter in itself. For example, the word "fümpfe" means "five" in Pfaelzisch, and the fifth letter of "fümpfe" is "F", so "fümpfe" equels "F". The plaintext of the message reads: I am in my hometown of Poughkeepsie for perhaps the last time.




Clue 3


Each word translates to a number in some other language.




Clue 4


Each number will give you a letter...




Clue 5


...in the word itself.





Clue 1


Like most of the stamps, this may not be important yet, so you might want to save it for later.




Clue 2


First you'll need each word. Then you'll want to put them together.




Solution


The French words for cat and water are "Chat" and "Eau" which, when put together and sounded out, creates the word "Chateau."




Clue 3


If it's not making any sense whatsoever, you might need to remember what language most of this card is in and act accordingly.
