    No dropcap is not unique to Pook. Firefly didn't have a dropcap either.

    Speaking of No Drop Cap... what are we to make of the drop cap for Chapter 17? There is an R for Rusful, the lizard, hooded men with fleshy wings, AND a pointing Fairy!

    Now one of you fine people pointed all of this out to me over AIM (feel free to chime in and take credit...!) but as much as I'd like to believe that this is some stunt by MS, if I recall correctly, the Chapter 17 drop cap has not been used and is the ONLY POINTING FAIRY not to be used so far. No?

    Des-
    You are absolutely correct. The existence of this unused dropcap is the best (and perhaps only) indication that MS may have had the Rusful token planned (at some level) from the start.

    Melsip--I agree with what you said (except for Pook being in the ground).

    Another thing different about Pook was his puzzle page (p. 100) had no "hidden Pooks" on it. Also there is a second thing different about the Pook puzzle from the first twelve--there is a text clue for Pook on p. 100. This was pointed out in a post by gromney earlier on this forum: at the top of the page, the single-word paragraph "Pook!" is indented twice. And further down the page it is done again. Someone pointed out that this was apparently the first time a text clue was used for a token.

    This is why Pook could be just the first in a string of tokens with "different" solves. That's my thinking. If it turns out I'm wrong, that's OK too, because I will have enjoyed speculating!

    You know how the poem in the book told us what we needed to do to find the tokens. Well, maybe the "relevance" of clue 3 is to tell us what we need to do to solve the two web based clues for Rusful.
    And yes, the press release did say that the first of two clues needed to find the Rusful token was released at the book signing in Kentucky. So, even if someone is halfway there to finding the Rusful token, they will not be able to find said token until MS wants them to, since he can release the 2nd of the two clues anytime he wants, which could end up being a week before the end date??

    I just hope there is a token for Yorah, since the book said she was partly crystallizing, and I luvvv trees.

    Default The never ending search for tokens

    After reading all the posts, I am not sure what to believe anymore. All the tokens may have been found and MS is making more to sell books. How hard would it be to pick out random characteristic on any page(s) and develop a key for an added token. As far as anyone knows, whose to say that they weren't always a part of the hunt?

    I say who cares, if that is what he is doing. I doesn't mean: MS selling books, we already have by the way, any less enjoyable on the hunt for us! I say let him add or "reveal" tokens for Rusful, Yorah, Anna, Zac, and tweleve compainon bugs. That to me says MS is giving us what he and we love most. The hunt and adventure that we may be a part of.

    So please, don't get so frustrated it is a game after all, and no one said it has to be easy.
