    On a final note as to the J and Q in the solution to Ch2, Ron had already said that Q was the last letter in the sequence. After all the other letters were filled in only one spot was empty for the J. The goal is to provide the SEQUENCE to Ron by using the text of the story, following the clues.

    Let's just put Ch2 to bed and progress to Ch 3. Although the solution may have not been the best, it is over and we should exert our energy on CH3.

    Absolutely not will I put chapter two to rest. These chapters are supposed to be able to be solved WITHOUT spoonfed Facebook clues by the author. The so-called solution clearly was missing two keys. When you are trying to solve a puzzle with 20 answers or keys and you are only able to find 18, one tends to think their mode of solving to be incorrect and tries other options which is clearly what happened in this case. I may never get resolution as to the missing keys from the author which will always leave a bad taste in my mouth as to the validity of each chapter having ONE solution that can be found/solved without additional clues.

    There was a specific clue in the Maxie version that told you to use Q in spot 20. The facebook clue was just there to help those who missed it. There was also a facebook clue that told you how to find this clue within the chapter text.

    I thought like you for a while, but if in every sequence we were looking for J and Q, that would narrow the search down dramatically. There just aren't that many in the chapter, and I think that's why they're absent.

    Whether the later chapters will follow the same method, who knows? I think it's a reasonable bet for chapter 3 that we are looking for 18 again.

    Jedloah,

    Could you please elaborate?
    I have reason to believe that this method could apply to more than one eagle so I don't want to give too much away. It is encrypted text within the chapter. When you find and decode it, it tells you in plain english (no riddles) where the Q goes. It allowed the author a way to include the Q without it being too obvious.

    When you find it, you'll know. (It does not give the full sequence, just the Q in this case)

    There was also a confirming facebook clue that pointed people to this spot in the text.

    Good luck with chapter 3.

    What a joke !!!

    you are saying that there some extra cryptic texts in the plain text that are helping to resolve the chapter ... i do not beleive you AT ALL
    There is nothing to help us AT ALL, and the solution accepted by RON is not the best one, is not the most logical one, is not the smartest one either ... it is just a solution nothing else and he could change his mind and take another that would be exactly the same ...

    I'd like to think Ron has created an excellent treasure hunt, and all will be explained - in the end...

    It stands to reason it's not going to be easy - look at the prize money.

    Jedloah, are you able to elaborate on your findings?

    Jedloah is not going to explain anything ... read again what he just told you

    And i completely desagree with you : Ron hasn't created an excellent treasure hunt because so far i didn't see where is what you can qualify as "excellent" and i do believe that he will not explain anything nor at the end of chapter 1, nor at the end of chapter 2 nor at the end of any chapter and nor in the end.

    He had the possibility to explain first and second chapter, he didn't explain anything as he didn't explain how to solve the hunt without additionnal clues
    so that means that effectively his game will be solve whenever he wants, so whenever he will provide the additionnal clues to solve it

    Once sommebody asked me how long is it going to take to solve all chapters after the first one had been solve, he was guessing 1 or 2 monthes for each, i was guessing at least 5 monthes for each (enough time for ron to release 20 or 30 clues, just for internain people)

    Clues can be explained without revealing any internal code that would help solve the rest of the chapters. It bothers me that after being confronted, Ron tells people he will reveal where the hidden JQ in chapter two were found then stays silent. Not going to help sell any books that way.
