I had a bit of a nightmare for this one. Despite getting the tricky start on Unordered Pairs I somehow missed the existence of one of the other clues and had to make a guess after being stuck for a long time. Coded Pairs felt arduous and I managed to break the Fortress twice before eventually solving it.

I solved the puzzles again on my commute home about a week later, after the dust had settled, and they all solved smoothly, all 10 variants done in 45 minutes. So probably just a bad day at the office.
