    $\begingroup$ The clues from the numbers aren't an anagram, they're a cipher (of sorts). Can't really see where the anagram comes in (unless Dyrandz just made a mistake, it does look like English might not be their first language). $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @DyrandzFamador - not a problem. I suspected that that's what might have happened. Just for future reference, anagrams are where you change the order of the letters, like going from "hello" to "loleh" or from "flier" to "rifle". $\endgroup$
