# Thread: This could go on forever (fourteen?)

1. ## This could go on forever (fourteen?)

I know everyone is ready to move on and just wants to find Pook so we can all get some sleep, but I have been looking for some oddities as Sue asked us to and kept coming back to the word fortnight. I think that Ana is fourteen.

This puzzle is not over yet.

Fortnight is equal to 14 nights or half a synodical month (half - halfling)

Also on pg 83 under fortnight is the word stone, an Old English term meaning 14 pounds.

Much of this has been mentioned before, but I don't think anyone has realted it to the 14th puzzle piece yet.

I hope that there is not a fifteen and sixteen! This could last until Dec 31st 2007!

2. I've seen clues both in ATT and the Companion Book that indicate either 16 or 18 total tokens. And I do believe Ana is one of them.

3. Twelve + e = Tweleve = 14
Remember MS is a computer expert

Fortnight = 14 nights
Stone = 14 lbs.
There are fourteen stems on page 83 that have been cut. Look closely.
There are 14 places that the stems cross the boarder
This last one Iâ€™m unsure of but the wrapping on the creatures club looks to have an XIV = ( 14 )
I have also noticed that the branches in the outside boarder only cross the boarder at the top left of the page. Then all of the sudden it stops a little weird not sure if it means anything.
One last thing if 14 = E in hexadecimal maybe we should look at the rest of the Hexadecimal numbering system for clue # 3?

4. I missed one the 14th letter of the alphabet is N Anna not Ana the missing N.

There is a great website that goes into more detail on fourteen

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fourteen

Well now we just need to solve this jewel and its all over right?

Forgive me for sounding like a dummy, but could you explain this further? I don't get how "Tweleve = 14."

Thanks.

there is an extra e in twelEve. hexadecimal for 14 is e. he's referring to the fact that since tweleve has the extra e it stands for 14.
great ideas he has. they make sense.

7. Thanks melslp79 that is what I was trying to say. The hexadecimal E might be nothing. Its just there are so many other things on the page that also point to fourteen I didn't want to leave any out.

The most important thing here is that we find the 5 x 5 on the page not all of the fourteen referances.

I have looked at the twisting braches, the stone wall, the dots on the tree the direction of all of the faces, the globs of green stuff in the boarder and still nothing. Each branch goes over and under another branch so many times maybe the overs or one set of 5 and the under is the other 5. Then I come across a branch that has 6 overs?

The blobs of green mack no sence to me as does the stone wall. The faces seem to be telling us somthing with all of the different directions that they face. The one at the top of the page gave me an idea to look at this page in a differnt way from the top down. Still nothing.

I need some help here does anyone have any other ideas as to how this could work.
