Agents,
Holmes also said: “It is a capital mistake to theorize before you have all the evidence.” In light of that quote, please don’t be disappointed that we haven’t uncovered anything concrete from the files you’ve given us yet. It appears that the two files you’ve obtained are related, and that there are more bits of evidence to gather before the mainframe can extract anything meaningful.

We have received another message containing the code word given in the last e-mail from “The Source”. It contained only the code word and EisoptroTriskaidekaPhobia, but these files were attached:

File A
File B

Good luck!

Triskaidekaphobia is the fear of the number 13.

That's all I've got so far.

Eisoptro = Mirror

Tristaideka = Thirteen

Phobia = Kind of obvious.

Hmmm...not sure about Eisoptro, but TriskaidekaPhobia is the fear of the number 13...

Not sure what to make of the image form file A...possibly related to the password for the dmg in file B.

I got the same string from the dice, but apparently I'm missing something in translating that into the password for FileB.

13 and/or 31 arent working, its just that you only get three tries with the password, it says it failed to mount because of an authentication error.

I click on the dice in the right order, and then the extras fade away and the correct ones stay in front of the mirror, and then nothing else happens.  Is something else supposed to happen? Help!
