Shade three cells in every row and column of the 12x12 grid, and enter into every other cell a digit from 1 to 9 such that every row and column contains each digit from 1 to 9 exactly once.

Clues above and to the left of the grid are tripleblock clues: the first value gives the sum of the digits between the first and second shaded cell in the row or column, likewise with the second value and the second and third shaded cell. These values may be zero if the shaded cells are adjacent.

Clues to the right and bottom of the grid are X-sum clues: the value indicates the sum of the digits in the first X cells from that direction, where X is the first seen digit in that direction.

The clues have been written by an alien who uses an unknown number base. Same letters stand for same "digits", different letters for different "digits". No multi-digit clue may have a leading zero.

The puzzle follows:

Ooh! The start was quite tricky. Combined with a persistent wrong assumption it kept me struggling for a long time. Great puzzle, again!

Fun puzzle! The opening sequence was very satisfying to work out.

a really fun solve. definitely a lot of interesting deductions packed into the grid, but imo none of them are unreasonably hard

@MaizeGator: That is correct.

Rule clarification: A shaded cell still counts as a cell from an x-sum perspective, correct? For example, if the row sequence went S31S2 (S is shaded), the x-sum would be summing the first 3 cells (3 is the first seen digit) and the x-sum would have a value of 4?

Exceptional puzzle! Extremely tricky ruleset in all the best ways, flawless execution and with aesthetics that could easily be mistaken for someone else ;) Very impressive indeed.
