Deciphering Documents is an activity players gain access to when initially building the Cabinet Noir. Deciphering documents uses Deciphering... as a progress quality, using Intercepted Document to determine the reward. Any surplus points of this quality is lost upon cashing in.
If you are looking to develop Cover Identities, check Cover Identities (Guide).
Deciphering Documents is a repeatable activity that allows one to obtain a variety of rewards. In order to do it, first you must obtain a document in need of deciphering, and then you need to break the code in your Cabinet Noir by raising your Deciphering... to the required level and then cashing out via Interpret your Intercepted Document

|Option||Challenge||Min for 100%||Success||Rare Success||Failure|
|Crack a code||175, 3||292, 7||+ 5 CP||+ 3 CP|
|Crack a code - Requires Midnighter||175, 3||292, 7||+ 6 CP||+ 3 CP|
|Make a leap of code-breaking insight||175, 6||292, 10||+ 7 CP||+ 10 CP||+ 3 CP , -3 CP|
|Make a leap of code-breaking insight - Requires Midnighter||175, 6||292, 10||+ 9 CP||+ 15 CP||+ 3 CP , -3 CP|
It is also possible to gain Deciphering... +1-2 CP in The Dome of Scales with Pit one Varchaasi against another but this is highly inefficient.
Documents requiring Deciphering... 5 take a minimum of 3 actions (or 2 as a Midnighter) plus 1 action to cash out when using Make a leap of code-breaking insight, whereas documents requiring Deciphering... 15 take a minimum of 18 actions (or 14 as a Midnighter) plus 1 action to cash out.
With a maximum echoes per action of 3.9 for Midnighters, there are better grinds for money, but it is the only reliable way to obtain a Rumourmonger's Network or Reported Location of a One-Time Prince of Hell. Additionally it is a good source of Night-Whispers, Primaeval Hints and in a pinch a way of obtaining Vital Intelligence for Moonlit Woods.
