    My speculation is that MS hid the Rusful token much later than the first group. I think that he did not expect the original twelve tokens, and Pook to be found this soon. Consider that Rusful and maybe more are Plan B. If I were you tomtom I would go back and search again.
    I thought that Rusful was in New Orleans, so

    I agree with my comrade-in-html Debriole - if he had meant 14 tokens to be found, then the page 77 border would have said "There are fourteen". Or perhaps "There are at least thirteen". Or even "I'll decide eventually how many there are going to be, but twelve is clearly not the right number, you fools".

    But more than that, I think the sudden revamping of the official rules is the strongest indicator that this token was not originally planned. Everything that was needed for Pook was in the book, and he's been able to say (even repeat quite often) that "everything you need is in the pages of the book. I don't say if it's in the words or the pictures, but it's all in the pages of the book." Now, all of a sudden the rules have been changed to say that you need to use the clues on the web page. The pages are no longer good enough. That simply doesn't seem like a plan someone would have had from the beginning.

    Perhaps I am wrong. Perhaps MS planned this out from the beginning. Or perhaps he left some extra "clue-ish" things in the book in case he needed them for later (a "plan B" as Grandmama put it).

    And as BackgammonBob so elegantly concluded:

    I will be buying more books tomorrow for the signing in Louisville! what a ploy - and it works!

    I'm not a jeweler, but I imagine an uncut black diamond isn't something you need to plan for several years to get.

    The Rusful tree may be on the pg. 20 (the spider page with him standing in it), that would make sense to me.

    Default at the Louisville reading/signing

    there were several of the illustrations framed as a backdrop for Stadther on the stage - audience was invited to view them up close after - my girls and I did so and my youngest was the first to point out the drawing he was presenting there were - pre-clue - things we knew had been used to find tokens were not found on these original pics - thing is there were more differences between these pics and what appears in the book than have been already used - I truly beleive he had more clues designed in from go - and that it was always there as a plan to use if need be and - of course with all the brilliant minds out here working on this - he found it necessary to implement plan b and it shows he is an excellent strategist - course to make the money and do what he has done designing the hunt - guess I already knew that! but yep - I think this was always a plan in the works - pre-publication -

    He definately had this planned in advance. He knew once the first two were found then everyone would know for sure how to find the other 10. So he had to add something to keep it going so he still could sell his book and continue to promote it and the upcoming book. The hype for it is crazy compared to the first book which not too many people heard about until months after it was released.

    Default I think he planned it all along.

    It's just my opinion, but I think he had this planned all along. After all he said there were 12 jewels, he didn't say there were only 12 jewels. I think he may have a twisted little sense of humor that likes to play with people like this. Besides, it does sell more books. Just my opinion though. SnowQueen.
