    kristen, hope your solution is for the n-e-x-t token. might as well wait and see if MS throws us some new bait. he does say happy hunting. i know that's been at the end of token redemptions right along, but i would have removed it if rusful was the last one. becky

    Hi quakerspecl...back when clue#5 came out, raven48 from ATT and I exchanged a few emails and I mentioned the cross staff to him. It was an instrument used by sailors and was first described in 1342 by Medieval Jewish scholar Levi Gershon. This is believed to be the first prototype with many better adapted following at later dates. Are your cross and this cross staff one and the same?

    Hey, dreamer-
    Well, I can't say, but it sounds about the same thing. Lemme check the archive over at ATT and read what you two were exchanging. Get back with you.

    Sorry about that, dreamer. You wrote that you and raven exchanged email (not forum posts).

    Well, from what I could gather from the sources I've been reading, the Cross Staff you mentioned (Rabbi Gershon's design) is similar to the following. This thing was derived from the Celtic Cross/Wheel tool and may have been used in construction of the Great Giza pyramid.



    Does it look familiar?

    One of the really interesting things about the Rusful find is that it was still located in a tree's knothole.

    The Starz centers fulfilled the bit about 'Within the text you have the key', and the token in the knothole applies to a different line from the poem.

    Do the rest somehow come into play?

    I'll think some more....

    By the way, I don't think the final solution was meant to be an anagram any more than 'Moon-like' was meant to be an anagram.

    That's interesting, doc.

    (I'm still playing around with different applications of "a code of numbers five to a side...")

    I need to get more focused here and in the New Topics thread--I've been rambling too much of late.

    The 'solid' solve for Rusful should have been GOLDEN GATE PRAYER BOOK CROSS.

    But, we have a PKNG rather than AEOOO.

    I've noticed the following:

    G = A + 6
    K = E + 6
    The N and P are both one off the 'O'.

    I wonder if the letter selection method involves somehow changing the G, K, N, and P to the appropriate letters to produce the 'solid' solve.
