    Default Nary

    If nary means "not a" or "never a" as found in the dictionary, how would this phrase read? An even code with one piece not a? Or one piece never?

    Need help here figuring how nary fits.

    I have a gut feeling that the *poem* is actually a *riddle*. There *are*
    riddles in the companion book... Also, the puzzle 32/33 bugs me!

    I'm new here and have only been working on this treasure hunt for 5 days....I'm hooked!

    On the "nary" clue, does anyone see it as "mary"? combined with the word sanctuary I've been thinking along the lines of maybe a church, or cathedral?

    I have always thought that the poem was sort of an instructional clue.
    I posted an idea about it on the Q4T, but the states I came up with were not quite spread out enough. I also have a thought about the moonlike song, and I may post my ideas on the appropriate thread later.

    I was wondering is the "one piece nary" referred to a word, half of which was nary, like dictionary.

    Default The Poem

    I don't have the book yet but was wondering if there was a more complete version of the poem somewhere? Also, I was curious why often there is a page number but no words following it. Why those page numbers, is it difficult to read, etc. ? Thanks.

    NEED BOOK!

    pages with question marks are the pages that haven't been solved yet

    Default Poem

    Thanks for the clarification but I'm still confused (as usual). THis may be way out of place, since I don't have the book and don't even know where they poem lines came from (how they were solved) but what makes us think there are the missing ones. It looks like all the lines rhyme and the 'missing' lines would disrupt that. Except for that thirteen line. Any comments on this?

    Thanks for putting up with my newbiness
