    After the reading the solution book the idea that kept coming up again and again was that he was running out of time to get the book to the publishers. Didn't he spend years and years coming up with the idea and the design of the hunt?? What did a couple of months more mean then? I don't think that would have made a big difference, if you think about it, most people had to wait until the snow was gone to try and look in trees anyway.
    So answers in the FAQs like the one about the spots on Pook on page 72: "I just forgot to drawn them in" makes me think that we are giving MS too much credit... I hope there is an uber puzzle for those who are still trying to find tokens (I gave up months ago) but I don't believe there is.
    My take on Rusful's puzzle is that the web clues will give coordinates like page x line y letter z in the book and that way you can spell whatever you want and add as many tokens as you want.

    Now, that is an interesting thought. I agree with your other point as well, the rush to get it out that it was poorly edited, etc.

    Hopefully, now that he has a team in place, he will do a better job with TSAD. At least he'll have someone to blame if he doesn't proof it well!

    Default Solution Book

    I'm sure MS pre-thought many things, but I'm not so sure he didn't get a few lightbulbs going on AFTER seeing some of the creative things going on as a result of the internet community, i.e., the map page he borrowed from Tweleve (I've forgotten the names) and/or Bass's Solution Webpage. Unfortunately, Bass's creation goes without the merit it deserves except in our circles. The map was a great idea, but Bass's work on the webpage reflects weeks and weeks of work. I don't think MS could predict everything that happened and there are apparent latent benefits he's going to enjoy and benefit from. I doubt he would have had the time to even get a solution book ready if it were not for the information he already had at is disposal. I think he would have planned one for 2007 maybe? JMO....
    Dreams really do come true!

    Willhouse, it wasn't too much. Renart wanted to partner with me in the hunt instead (and eventually we did, despite my warning about my insanity), but I felt in either case I should recompense her (my share) for the 20+ hours she'd spent. And, personally, I still think it's legitimate, even though it doesn't help in any way whatsoever that I can tell, even in a post ad hoc sort of way.

    Chapter 17 (The Hostage, page 7 features a Flower Faery pointing at something. She's not there for nothing. This page is my bet for any Rusful-related book requirement to find the black diamond.

    And I still think the tree border around page 16 should be a clue that spells out something, as well as the berries in the Forward on page 10.
