    Default Web Clues required? I believe helpful yes, required no.

He also made a point to note that Rusful is the next token, when asked if Rusful was the last. He also said that there are tokens out there still, tokens plural, not a token. He did however, make sure to leave Pook out of the discussion entirely when asked which tokens were found, and simply told everyone to look at the official website. So he could have just still been counting Pook.

    Also, take this for what you will, but when my husband and I were getting our books signed, he asked if we had gone anywhere for any tokens. We replied that we were close to the Michigan token, but didn't get it. His response was "Should have spent more time on the third clue."

    We're already working on the new clue. Of course, my luck it'll finally be a token found in California, a month after we move away from there. At least it'll mean my West Coast friends will finally get a shot!

    Oh, and we also asked him what his favorite of the illustrations was. He said that if he had to pick, he'd go with the pencil drawing of the Darklings.
    This quote from the Rusful - Black Diamond thread speaks to the prior existence of additional tokens. Another thread I read on ATT had Stadther responding to a child about addtional tokens and to paraphrase, he said there were more out there and that he couldn't even remember where he hid them all.

    I am reading text from the companion book and ATT that points to a set of 10 Amulets and 2 Rings. Page 37, YNOF, for example contains "Thirteen", "Jewels", "10 Amulets" and "2 Rings". The top of the text for "Thirteen Jewels" starts at 5/8ths of an inch below the "of Faeries" text. It can be read directly without crossing your eyes or using a magnifying glass. The outline that forms the letters is the color white. so focus on white. The letters run from there at an upward angle to the "s" in "of Faeries". The "Jewels", "10 Amulets and 2 Rings" text strings are just below it, also running at an upward angle.

    I think it is valid because I have seen this or similar text in 3 places - twice in ATT and once in the companion book.

    I still see a contradiction in the addendum to the Rules and the statements by Stadther. I am a computer programmer and very logically minded, and I see the loophole that allows the finding of the additional treasures without the web clues.
    And now that he believed in them - he could see them. They were everywhere. Hundreds of them, some small and silly, others bright and beautiful.

    Where exactly does the "T" in thirteen begin? How large are the letters?

    Wasn't Renart who was able to see a completely different text in the cover of YNOF? And I am not talking about the famous sub-poem, it was a different one.
    So once more, I would say that in that cover you can see almost anything if you want to. I am not saying that Balder is imagining things and if you really see all those words and they help you to find a token, then good for you!

    Default one of two

    I noticed that it says "the first of at least two web based clues".
    Does this mean there will be another web based token?

    Default Where does THIRTEEN start?

    5/8 of an inch below "of" in the "of Faeries" title and on the left hand edge but inside of the brown line running down the binder. The bottom of the "T" in THIRTEEN is terminated by a short fat stroke of dark brown dots. These dark brown dot strokes form the bottom of THIRTEEN and they continue upward at an angle (kind of like little waves). Those thick dark brown dot strokes end at the tip of the Pickensrooters right most wing. The "T" measures about 7/8 of an inch high and the other letters get progressively shorter as you go up and to the left, but not much shorter.

    I know this stuff is hard to see and read. But I do know for absolute sure that there is truth in some 3D Text and 3D Imagery. I have spent a lot of my time there (listened to a different drummer I guess).

    I see what you're talking about; however, I think you should concentrate on the solid red rather than the white on page 37. Where you get "thirteen," if you look at the solid red, I get "the faeries" also on an upslant.
    Probably should concentrate on the cave pages. ALso, has anyone seen any hidden Rusfuls (like the hidden bugs?

    Default have passed this idea through doc

    I repsect his opinin and since he thinks this possibly relevant I will share my thoughts here - getting difficult to decide where to share ideas for this - hope this spot makes sense - anyway.....

    I went Sunday to see Stadther at the J B Speed
    I was delighted to discover that he had many of the illustrations framed and there on display - I asked and was given permission to photograph them -
    today I was comparing some prints I had made from my digi-cam to the illustrations in the book - my daughter had pointed out that some of the drawings did not have some of the clues on - so -
    second - it appears that the drawings were made and then the clues were superimposed into them for publication - for instance the border on the drawing page 31 which I seem to recall was a morse or color code for one of the solves ( I have a terrible memory! ) it was shown as solid on his drawing at the session
    so - third I started in detail to compare the pics I had to the drawings in the book - I have found some differences - the one which seems potentially useful here is page 45 - the fairies - the clothing they have on specifically the second fairy down on the left and the center bottom fairy in green and the little one in the lower corner clinging to the inside borderframe part - the patterns on their clothing - they do NOT appear on the pic I have - they were added later - that makes me think they are actual clues
    I must start my new work week tomorrow and can't give a lot of thought to this detail but I have a sense this is important in this solve or one to come
    should this detail come to be valuable to anyone I would just ask credit for help in the think - good luck - of course f the clue leads to any place I could search - happy to go on another hunt - 1,111 miles and no token but treasuring the adventure

    imagination is the only weapon we have in the war against reality!

    success is simply getting up one more time than you fall

    Default Rusful's clues

    I have found a page that wasn't used that has 5 symbles in the key. I don't want to give it away but if you look and associate rusful with this page, you can find it too. It seems rather obvious now.
    Good luck trovers.
