    Reggie-

    Mr Priess died in an auto accident last year.

    We are completing his passion of The Secret in his
    memory. There is no one else who has one hundred percent
    knowledge of the book's solutions.

    The Secret (if it ever was) is no longer a competition
    but a group effort now.

    Feel welcomed to participate in this journey, but retain
    the sentiment as mentioned above.

    Byron Preiss died in a car accident last summer. So, while not technically impossible, it will be very difficult.
    I caught you a delicious bass.

    Reg, the answers to these questions are posted throughout the Q4T site, however, in answer to this question, the illustrator, John Jude Palencar, has talked to Egbert several times.

    The gist of the conversation is that he only knew where one or two casques were located, specifically the Cleveland casque since he helped bury it. He got polaroids from Preiss and painted what he was told to paint. He also destroyed everything he received from Preiss.

    Finally, he has sworn not to reveal any locations that he might know as he considers it a breach of contract.

    does that mean the jewels are not rewarded?

    Reg, right now that is the assumption. Egbert contacted Preiss's widow and was basically told that she wasn't going to be able to talk any more about The Secret.

    Now, if someone finds a casque, I would certainly suggest contacting her about the jewel, but honestly, none of us are in it just for that reason.

    Jewels or NO jewels....we dont care. We, as a team, will find great satisfaction in simply solving this 25 year old hunt in BP's memory. He was quite shocked when he found out a few years ago that there were so many people still working on his masterpiece. I'm sure he is smiling from above seeing the pleasure we get from The Secret.

    Thanks again BP!

    .........time to add a DAR ring to my collection.........
