Personally I don’t think we should be allowed to post puzzles which require people to have two eyes.

Of course this was intended as a harmless joke and me myself fell into the ableist trap when I thought of replying that you can solve the puzzle with the help of an image editor when one happens to be one-eyed or otherwise stereo-vision impaired, we all failed to think of people with no vision at all.

If they have one of those braille pads would they need two hands to experience the image in stereo? Oh my gaaaaawd. the puzzle might be discriminating against blind, one-handed people!

Just threw one together, pretty simple, but maybe it will give a little challenge.

Well I came up with XVZNVM by taking your numbers and grabbing Word 14 Letter 1, as there are 20 words (or at least, groups of letters).  Half of these are Roman numerals but I can't come up with anything significant (15zvn1000 doesn't mean anything to me), nor can I do anything with assigning numerical values to the letters or inverting them (Z=A etc). 

Can't seem to get any further than this.  Am I along the right sort of lines here?

It’s a Caesar cipher. Move each letter 5 back then try again.
