Clue 1


Consider the Ouroboros... This cipher derives from that concept.




Clue 2


It's a simple, albeit never-ending cipher.




Solution


This is an alphanumeric cipher where 1=A, 2=B, etc, only it doesn't reset at 26. Each subsequent number is higher than the last. So if you started with ALA, then it would be 1-12-27. The plaintext reads: EXECUTE COMMAND TSUNAMI




Clue 3


No number will ever be repeated.




Clue 4


1, 27, 53, etc... All the same thing.

The lines on this card are your map... to the letters on the back of the final card.
