Actually there are TWO separate puzzle contests running here.
First is to solve the icons puzzle itself.
Second is to say how many permutations are possible.
* Story Excerpt & "Pallindreeve" Puzzle
* Pallindreeve Puzzle Discussion & Second ("Permutations") Puzzle
Anybody is welcome to try. No fee, no registration (public forum).
I thought both answers were easy, but nobody has actually solved either puzzle yet.
I hope you will visit, and I hope you enjoy the story excerpt and the puzzles!
