Even though neither of us received a telegram, mask, or IOOP card, both my girlfriend and I received the code letters with the pawn pieces just now.
I received a brown pawn with E8 written on the bottom and a cipher symbol on the side. And the letter has "VI" on the top. Must be sections of a larger message since mine is different from hers.
She received a tan pawn with F6 written on the bottom, and her letter has "IV" on top.
It was delivered by the now familiar Speedy Brothers service:
He did not arrive on a bicycle. We assume he had a car parked nearby.
CRACKING THE CODE
I believe each pawn has a grid code on it that corresponds with a Lutwidge symbol. Let's add them as people report them.
*Red=Moves that were discovered via computer program,and are yet to be claimed.
*Blue=Moves that have been confirmed and claimed with visual proof.
B= D3 (humangladiator)
I=E5 (Mithrandir), E7(sandman420), G4(Noelle Vague),E1
O=G6 (jake233), B7 (cyclos12)
P=H1 (milestailsprowe, jaypeecee)
Y= D2 (I Would Kindly)
The letters have a roman numeral header at the top.

Of particular note were contributions made by Almarose, humangladiator, Grrkek, FalkorsRaiders, and magicman4443. (If I left anyone out, PM me.)
Trust The Red Pawn Not
Nor The Ink That Lies.
Patient Did I Dwell
In My Pillowed Cell
'Til The Pawn Arrived.
Robed In White
Proffered False Degrees
Droned In Theorems
Making This Decree
Red Pawn Vowed The Vault
Of Secrets Id Reveal
Or He Would Capture
Gold Of Rapture
By Cutting Me With Steel
Scalpel Wielded High
Pawn Would Drain Me Red
Pawn Did Cut Him Dead
In A Pool Of Blood
Stood A Pawn Most Vexed
At The Deed Hed Done
Quickly Did I Run
Before He Struck Me Next
Now I Lurk And Hide
Seeking Other Pawns
Know My Guilts A Lie
Guard Me On The Sly
From The Knave I SpawnedBiggerDaddier took the extrapolated letters from the above puzzle and placed them on an 8x8 chess grid. He came up with the following:
_ _ _ - - - R _
_ _ X _ _ - O _
_ _ O - E - U S
_ Y B - V N Q G
K M _ H I E I U
C _ _ T F Z L J
A _ _ I _ O _ _
P _ _ W _ D _ _
"Pack my box with five dozen liquor jugs" is a pangram. It's exact meaning, though, is unclear.
