Rip, I'm very late to this game. I'm pretty sure angry moo moo is the correct protect, but the baconian cipher could allude to someone in code... I think jimmy-bond asked a question in the question marathon about the baconian cipher and pepperonipi was the last poster in the thread and I'm pretty sure that's a baconian cipher too.
As to the signature, maybe it refers to an ID clue with the 5th clue? Or possibly 2 targets? Because castling moves two pieces...?
Ah, big chungus. I remember that
Also, the only person who posted a baconian cipher on the code busters question marathon using the same style of encryption as this clue is hippo9.
As for the castling stuff, I think it's meant for the different pieces tied to the officers rather than the number of targets.
If life gives you melons, you're dyslexic.
Why can't dinosaurs ski? Because they're dead.
Season's over, I can sleep now.
