    Default Rusful clues on page 78 and 83??

    I would assume that we have to find a pair of Rusful's like we have done with the other jewels.

    Now I am thinking that on page 78, it has the dropcap R in the shape of a serpent, there is also a serpent around the border.

    On page 83 the same serpent is there.

    The text in both places is Rusful speaking.

    Is the serpent meant to be Rusful?

    Do we count the leaves around the R? Does that code reference any the 5x5 grid, or one of the web clues?

    Is the fairy pointing out the map like all other puzzles? and is the tree on page 83?

    comments?

    Heartis,

    If a dropcap letter is to be used, page 78 would be the likely choice I would think. For the longest time I couldn't understand the Ant's dropcap map, until the solution was posted. The park turned out to be a city block, I wonder if Rusful is in a similar shaped park?

    Hearts, all of the them so far have had at least two pictures of the creature, with the puzzle/solution page occurring on a page with an abstract image (with the apparent exception of Pook).

    Gymroo on ATT recently posted about the resemblance of the large knothole in Yorah (page 46) and Rusful's head (as depicted on page 59).

    Another possibility is the picture of Crystallized Pook on page 93. Turned upsidedown, it becomes a skull. This could be an abstract of Rusful.

    If Yorah's picture on pg 46 is Rusful's solution page, the puzzle might be something as simple as overlaying a rectangular 5x5 grid over the picture, and seeing what letter/squares are occupied or indicated by Yorah's 12 heads.

    The serpent shows up on every page where there's Darklings, but no Rusful, so it looks like it's the 'Spirit' of Rusful.
