HV19.03 Hodor, Hodor, Hodor


At first this looks like it may possible be a hidden code with different variations of hodor mapping to English alphabet characters. However, before we look into frequency analysis we do a Google search for hodor programming language and discover that such an esoteric language exists!

As the hint suggests, we need to base64 decode that last string.

Doing so gives us our flag!
