Published author, with two short stories published traditionally, one self-published, and also a self-published ~90 pages novella. This last one is titled “Corredores Vazios” in Portuguese, the language in which it's originally written. Its title translates to “Empty Hallways” in English, and it’s the work in which the webcomic of the same title is based.

This puzzle is devilishly hard. Probably, I might be wrong.

I created my own cipher for this (I mean, not really for this, I have created it months ago, it's just the first time I'm ever using it). I enciphered the message by hand, but I was afraid there might be some mistakes, so I wrote a Python program just to make sure. Turns out there was exactly one misspelling in the enciphered message.

The compass rose at the top was made by myself. I was going to use a public domain image from the internet, but I couldn't find one I was satisfied with.

I'm just going to leave this here: https://cryptii.com/. It's not going to help with this puzzle in particular (I don't think so, at least), but it does contain tools that will help with most of my puzzles.

I was only going to upload this on Monday, as I was planning on posting one page a week until the first four or five puzzles (all of which I have already designed) were up. However, I have decided to post twice a week instead.

When asked about it, I said that I would not give any hints to any of my puzzles, and while that still holds true, I will say this: presentation matters. The letters could have not been arranged in a grid, but they are; you need to ask yourself why. The title of the page may sound obvious, but I could have picked any other word, and yet I didn't.

Not a single detail, in this or any future puzzles, is without reason.

thanks for the clue, but...

unfortunately I don't know anything about music theory.
