Hehehe Stu did all the heavy lifting, I just closed the back gate on the truck when he was done, so over to you, Stu, if you have one. If not I can come up with something.

I think Stu is probably a bit busy these days with the new baby so I will duck in with a new puzzle.

I just would like to know if it is an actual 5 letter word or just a random set of 5 letters.

Creamy, I am certain your post will lead someone (or yourself) in the right direction, so you didn't waste your time.  :)

It's been so long since I have played it, but is there some connection to the four notes of a LOOM spell?

No, there are no references to anything outside the initial post.

No idea but is it some kind of Dingbats style clue?

Like it's the word FROZEN in a big string of letters and numbers so...

BICEP

As it is the word ICE (frozen) in a bunch of string (muscle is basically made up of fibres, which is kind of like string -- I'm not a biologist)

I'm pretty sure it's not that, but is it that kind of puzzle?

Yes, Stu, you are right!!!

You are not a biologist... and the rest of your theory is also completely off track.

words that are hidden to the left of each number, that number of letters away? So FROZEN is 5 letters to the left of 5. The others would be SEWS REX MAO (or RESEWS/DREX?) in that case...
