Along with the message

"The Alphabet runs straight. 16 plus 10 more. Followed by 6 symbols"

From all that we have so far, this is what I've been able to work out:

"The alphabet runs straight"
Yes it certainly seems to, save for the six letter gap between J and Q, which likely has to do with the "Followed by 6 symbols". It's possible the six letter gap is marked by a letter following the 0, in the same way as we have things like 5B, or 1C etc. I didn't write out a line for the punctuation marks and such because i couldnt seem to find a pattern with the sequencing of those.

And now i've gone ahead and just made an account so i can just edit my posts from now on.
The code so far turns out to:
D a 31 2A
D 31 e a 2C
C h 31 2E 2D i c 2B e
@ D D C h 31

of course thats only if i'm even doing this right.

I'm getting that too, still working on patterns

This makes me wish I had commented

We've got a decoder, but he hasn't put out much of a message yet.

What happened in his new video? I'm at school so Youtube is disabled.

36 20 33 22 57 5B 35 53 24 22 51 18 33 07 00 54 38 0B 22

I was able to decipher parts of it with the new key, but nothing major

edit: messed up some numbers

ALRIGHTY I do believe i've cracked the code so far!
Continuing on with the pattern,
00-09 runs A through J
0A-0F runs K through P
10-19 runs Q through Z

then the same with the lowercase letters

20-29 is a through j
2A-2F is k through p
30-39 is q through z

this, combined with 1F=@ cracks
03 20 31 2A

03 31 24 20 2C

02 27 31 2E 2D 28 22 2B 24

1F 03 03 02 27 31

into:

D a r k
D r e a m
C h r o n i c l e
@ D D C h r

and while i was typing this out we got a new part,
36 30 33 22 57 5B 35 53 23 22 51 18 33 07 00 54 28 0B 22

which comes out to
w q t c 57 ? v 53 d c = Y t H A _ L c

which looks to be gibberish so far but since the other part worked out fine i still have confidence, and theres still parts we dont know, like
all the symbols in the 50 series, which seems to be punctuation

First, awesome work!

the new code is actually

36 20 33 22 57 5B 35 53 24 22 51 18 33 07 00 54 38 0B 22
[I typed it out too fast, my bad guys]

And we have a winner with the first puzzle!

I think I was wrong with the second one, fixing it now.

Also a new message:

 Quote: The 10th Linked has yet to share. I am feeling merciful. The clue: q = 30, z = 39

Yup, looks like we have a twitter, and a website:
http://darkdreamchronicle.webs.com/index.htm
I can't watch their videos right now though, as I have no sound.
However, he posts about nightmares, headaches, and camping as a child, so it sounds promising.

Indeed. I can't get the link to work for the puzzle in DREAD, so I'm still working on that.

but none of the URLs match the one from the puzzle, unless I'm not translating correctly

And all of a sudden a new tweet:

"And suddenly I have a follower, eh? Welcome to my little self-therapy session. I babble, don't worry too much."

Self-therapy session, eh? Now where have we heard that before?

Ohh, this is going somewhere.

What did that @DDchm mean?

Also, since he's taking self-therapy, it's safe to say that he was speaking in the third-person on his youtube channel, so maybe he's schizophrenic or something.

@DDChr is a twitter account, probably short for "DarkDreamChronicle" which is also the name of his website listed under his twitter. He also has a youtube account under that name.

Ah cool. I wonder where this leaves us exactly? Can't really do much with
the word KarmA and a symbol, though maybe the weird capitalization is
important?
