Calling all Seattle Trovers!
I have the name of the park for the Yorah token, but there is no defining map for it at this point. It's a solid solve is all I can say but that doesn't mean much unless you have the token in hand! Rather than have one or two people look for it, I was thinking of having a 'hunting' party for it on Nov 3rd. Please PM me or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. I'm trying to get up there to a business conference as well, and if enough people show interest I'll push to get there.
Well, I was going to put this out there to begin with but thought I'd wait a day or two. The park name has a solid solve but I have no exact location. The best way to find this thing is to have a number of folks search at the same time rather than by one's or two's on any given day. The park is the kind of size you would need about 15 people for to search for a few hours, that's why I haven't gone up there to look yet.
Since time is running out, it's time to have some fun and give it a go on this! I will offer $3000 USD to anyone who can find it! It's more of a finder's fee and it's quite a fair offer, since I wouldn't want to deal with sharing a jeweled prize (if there is one) and then trying to sell it and manage all of that, hence the cash offer for finding it.
I still have not booked my trip yet, so I'm still looking to see if people are still interested, so please PM or email me if you are interested. I haven't seen many views on this thread so perhaps folks have really dropped off this board so close to the end of this hunt.
To show that I'm not totally crazy:
1) Clue 4 - Each fairy has an 'anchor point'. You can see in the background behind each fairy that a finger is pointing into their backs. The pink fairy in the middle even has the anchor point rounded off in the middle. Fill in each anchor point with a black circle. The orange, red, and blue fairies on the left have anchor points which line up exactly, which teaches you that this is the right track. You can erase that line, and then connect the top blue fairy to the bottom red fairy, then the top red fairy to the lower pink fairy. The small green fairy points exactly to the intersection of the lines - just reverse the image and it matches the the X found on p38 exactly in the upper left corner. This is just the beginning on this clue but at least you know what the fairies are for.
2) p 66 The first word 'There', there is a small 'A' and 'N' kind of mashed together just below the 'T' in 'There', which spells TAN. The fairy has four fingers on the right hand (or left as she faces one), and two fingers on the other hand = 42. On page 42 you see the only mention of a tan sock, and on p67 in the same 'There' chapter you see the mention of "A sock". These are linking clues used for the second tier of ciphers in the book which puts multiple clues together.
3) On p19 you see the dandelion seeds touching the axe, and are also near the word 'broadly'. On p85, you see the mention of a BROAD axe - this is another version of a linking clue to show that the word 'broadly' is used with another clue on p85.
There are tons of linking clues in this book - the tricky part is to know a) how they are used and b) which ones go together using those linking clues.
I found the park location actually quite quickly when I started finding the linking clues and I had never heard of the park name before, and after a google search it came right up. It is the name of a city park in the Seattle area.
And who is it that says there's a Yorah token?
Good question. I will re-state. There is a token in a city park in the Seattle area, and my best guess is that it is the Yorah token. Regardless, there is a token there.
