A cryptogram is a type of puzzle which consists of a short piece of encrypted text. Generally the cipher used to encrypt the text is simple enough that cryptogram can be solved by hand. Frequently used are substitution ciphers where each letter is replaced by a different letter or number. To solve the puzzle, one must recover the original lettering. Though once used in more serious applications, they are now mainly printed for entertainment in newspapers and magazines.
Each week throughout April, there will be a cryptogram for you to solve. Anyone who can solve all four, will become eligible for the puzzle award if they can also solve the other two puzzles that will appear throughout the month..
Each cryptogram will be updated into this post each Sunday in April. You will have a total of five days(120 hours) to solve each one.
All solutions are to be PMed to Nazgul
All of the solutions are something which can be found on RPA. There will be no clues other than that. If you do have any questions feel free to post them here or shoot me a PM.
Good luck everyone!
Please note that each puzzle will have it's own separate crypto key, so what worked in one puzzle will not work in any of the other puzzles.

Puzzle 4: So this time there will be two. You only need to solve one. However, there is a bonus involved that will be explained by solving the first. I also want to mention that puzzle 2 is extremely difficult, but not impossible. I gave it to someone who isn't a member on the site and they did solve it. It took them a while but they did figure it out
