@Jay yea, I got to a similar answer. Although I'm unclear if it should be your literal interpretation - rot13(vs h pnag orng z) - or the interpretation using actual English words - rot(vs lbh pnag orng gurz) - considering that the other answers were all proper English.

I'm mostly just amazed that an ancient mystical passage would reference launchd :P

Should that be answers[b].substr(index[b], 1) in the new answer.meta loop?

@Chowzen Got it, that makes more sense. I think I have all the individual answers now then, but not seeing the final quite yet...

comment Computational Linguists
@Chowzen is #9 rot13( yvsr'f n ovgpu naq gura lbh qvr )? If so, I think the common usage of that phrase is 7 words, not 6. Maybe you're going for an uncommon variation of the phrase, like leaving out the rot13( naq )?

comment The Evicted Tenant
@Sweet_Cherry The fact that there were in-depth descriptions of each neighbor, but they didn't directly reference each other, implies that this puzzle is not self-contained, but rather references outside knowledge (the tags also hint at that). There are only 7 rooms, which threw me off a bit, but once I considered the spouses, I started thinking about well-known groups of 9 things. The fact that one of the things was recently kicked out of the group, and also the emphasis on "Lifesavers", pointed me to planets; from there it was just matching up story clues to planetary attributes.
