    So does this mean that the book will NOT be used in finding this token?

    scratch that last post... my bad.


    Anyways, a la Lord of the Rings, The Blade has been reforged: Kraka's ATT book was put back together today using the finest scotch tape of the land. No man can weld this sword, only a 15 year old pirate...

    Yarr,

    personally, i think that the rusful token was not intended. after all, MS did not intend for the tokens to be found so quickly. It is an UNCUT black diamond. And why else would he use web clues?

    But that doesn't stop me from wanting it!! :P

    I've been fooling around with it for a little bit.

    I'm using the dragon 'S' from the book being related to the Rusful 'S' (Rusful = sulfur = 'S')--may or may not be valid.

    Dragon 'S' in the 5 x 5 grid on p. 45--same appearance as the grasshopper.

    I placed this dragon 'S' into the WSW square of a 5 x 5 grid as shown by the location of the 'S' on p. 78. Gave me the following grid:

    C....D....E....F....G
    H....I.....J.....K....L
    M....N....O....P....R
    S....T.....U....V...W
    X....Y.....Z....A...B

    Next, I just applied the grasshopper grid atop this as suggested by the similarity of the dragon 'S' grid and the grasshopper grid.

    I just did the same thing as the J Baird solution--obtained the letters and anagrammed:

    F TUCKS DL

    Unfortunately, I don't see anything about a Friar Tucks park in Delaware.

    LOL.

    I'll keep looking...

    Default I thknk the clues in the book were put there by design

    I think Stadther always had the notion to release more clues and more tokens - there are just too many things which remain unused - planned ahead things
    including the unused dropcap! I believe it was always his intent to space and pace out the search to fill the void until the end of hunt time - I foresee at least two more tokens - something about the way he phrased himself when talking about tokens out there - he talked in such a way as to say - there are tokens - plural - still out there waiting to be found - and i don't think he was counting Pook and rusful - I sensed he was meaning Rusful and ?????
    personally I hope there is a Yorah! such a beautiful tree
    anyway that's my two cents on the subject - time will tell

    I agree that there will be more tokens released over the next couple years inorder to keep the hunt alive. Why Rusful? There will have to be Zac, Ana, and Yorah and possibly others like mates, faries, etc. Keep them coming MS!
