    Hey guys,I need help. In this picture should be in some way ciphered a sentence. I just need help,to find it. Please,just give me a clue, how could I possibly put bunch of letters together from this picture. Most likely it will be in language you will not understand and will look like complete nonsense, but please help me...

    Thanks to anyone who solves this!!!

    A death sentence? What's the blood about?

    You said cipher. A cipher is not coded information. A cipher is the means to decode something. So is this a cipher or a code or a coded cipher?

    More context please.

    Filename is 24ic0.jpg . Maybe no coincidence the English alphabet contains 24 letters...?

    Only given information to this was: "Thic picture contains a sentence." I know it's really not much. The blood may not have any meaning at all. I expect, that the lines contain some system, that will in connection with alphabet put together words. But once again, it will most probably not be in English. But it definitely uses English alphabet. I need to figure out the system... Just any idea... I tried to count the lines, stopping the count depending on various circumstances, and connect the numbers with letters but it didn't work...at least not in the way I tried....

    I think you're supposed to go to the Old Town in Prague. If so I'll bet the next puzzle involves this funky medieval clock:



    What's this for BTW?

    Oh men, I would definitely not think of this!!! It's easy now, I was looking for some damn code or something.... Thank You,thank you very much!!!!!!!

    It's a part of a game connected with Lost. The whole thing is about connection of the Lost and history of Prague.

    BTW, how do you know it's about Old town in Prague? You understand that? Because I always thaught that this awful czech language would be among the most difficult to learn or understand.

    The exact translation of the text you found in the picture is: The word you are so desperately looking for is The Old town of Prague!!!

    Once again, Thank You, you realy helped me!!!

    I was just too lazy to brute-force the pattern. That attitude will get a person ...so far... in life.

    Pong, you beat me to it. I didn't know how to tip it to be able to read it though.
