Hello, I'm working on a series of challenges for beginner and intermediate users, aimed at testing some basic skills of ARG players. It would be great to have this listed here, and after looking through the Join documentation I have worked on providing the basic APIs and documentation you require.
Note: The first 12 or so levels are intended to be easy/beginner level challenges. After that, more intermediate, abstract, or combination puzzles come into play. There are currently 29 levels to reach, but my existing solvers always keep me busy making more.
