    Besides the above flaggers, we have repeated fairies on p. 25 with "B" chapter text, p. 40 pointing to the button, and p. 63 with "THE" chapter text.


    This lil pickensrooter is also found on pgs. 45 & 55, but his tongue is not sticking out.

    Do you think only some of these letters are important -- say forget about the Kootenstoopits since they don't do anything... or forget about the Pickensrooters since they are the naughtiest...?

    All fairies like to mislead humans and halflings so why look to them at all? *sigh*
    I tried to do something with this too. I even tried to go through and place the letters (from the FF only) into the 5x5 according to where they were pointing. I did the FF only because the others seemed to "get in the way" (i.e. if there was more than one letter in a box it was usually because one was from a FF and another was from a koot or pick).
    Then I thought maybe the "don't be afraid of the dark" statement meant look only at the letters that coincide with the blackened squares on page 86. I got nuthin'. I TOY was about all I could come up with.

    Default The Pointing Faries in DropCaps

    Hi All,

    This is my first post on this site.

    I am currently investigating the faries in the drop caps . As you all may know, they are mentioned in the poem and are definitely pointing to something. To me they are therefore worthy of study.

    Here are my thoughts on them .

    There are indeed thirteen, 1 for every treasue.

    Their arms are very angular, Tracings indicate clock hands or possible semiphore positions. My problem with this is that I do believe each fairy
    is related to a single treasure. I dont see how either of these theories
    can contain enough information to do that. With semiphore you would only get a single letter, with clock hands possibly two letters, but youd have to apply some type of code to get from nubers to letters, strikes me as way too hard.

    The top of this thread mentioned that the faries may point to state outlines. I came to this conclusion as well . I am curious as to why the author of that post abandoned that theory. Has the state outline theory been completely exhausted?

    I can clearly see New York and Idaho with a cursory glance without even pulling out a US map!!! If anyone else is either actively persuing this theory or has exhausted its possibility, I'd love to hear about it.


    Thanks

    lee

    i think all of the dropcap faeiries are pointing to something relevant/important, but they're different - for instance, one of the dark lines may be a river. one faeiry points to a color. i, too, think each faeiry goes with a particular token, and i think there's a separate puzzle for each token also, that when solved, and combined with whatever the faeiry is pointing to, will reveal the location of the token. so which puzzle matches with which token and with which faeiry? it's like playing clue

    i really hope this makes sense....i have whooping cough, and at this point, it's mostly the robitussin talking
    maybe "not hole" refers to courtney love....

    lee - consider if they can be like the hand of a clock...that would yield two numbers. Perhaps plotting on lattitude/longitude? Or am I being way too obtuse?

    What about each fairy directing us to a puzzle to solve? I don't know what they all mean, but the general idea goes like this:
    pg. 16 Fairy - obviously the 5X5 block code (clues on that page?)
    pg. 20 Fairy - vines & leaves spell out things on certain pages?
    pg. 22 - no idea
    pg. 25 - no idea
    pg. 45 - another 5X5 block code with clues on dragon pages?
    pg. 52 - some kind of morse code or puzzle involving dashes
    and breaks in square outlines (5x5?)
    pg. 55 -seems to lead us to the Rusful page (80)
    pg. 59 -Yorah tree on page 46?
    pg. 63 -code of blocks?
    pg. 66 -something on that page
    pg. 69 - no idea
    pg. 78 - leaves on other pages?
    pg. 88 - spider code on page 20

    Each one of those pages - "solved" - would lead us to a location? Just a different way of looking at things that the fairies might be pointing to.

    Default Matching Fairies

    I tried to match up all the fairies that are the same, although some are reversed or a different size. The fairy on pp. 2, 51 & 59 is pointing to the #6, a puzzle piece with part of a 'T' on it and the dropcap 'Y' respectively which when put together I came up wit 6ty or sixty. I couldn't get anything with the other pairs but maybe this will help somebody.

    other matches are
    p.45 - S & 55 - T, the fairy image is reversed
    p.52 - O & 69 - T, image reversed
    p.25 - B & 63 - E or THE, larger image
    p.22 - D & 61 - part of 'A' on puzzle piece, larger image

    Stu
    Go then...there are other worlds than these

    There are thirteen pointing fairies and 5 leading fairies.
    The leading fairies are the kootens.
    the pointers are flower and pickens
    why is this? any ideas?

    Just adding some more observations... I'm very curious about why some fairies repeat/reverse...

    Kootenstoopit #1 appears on pages 2, 51, and 59. On page 2, she points to the 15 #s, on page 51 she points to a puzzle piece, and on page 59 her direction is reversed and she points to a Y (note:this is the page with all of the puzzle pieces).

    Flower Fairy #1 appears on page 16, pointing to the Z on the 5x5 grid

    Pickensrooter, Pose 1 appears on page 20, pointing to the F (or a leaf)

    Kootenstoopit #2 appears on pages 22 & 61. On page 22, she points to a "D" (which looks suspiciously like a "B", actually), and on page 61 she points to a puzzle piece. She also appears on page 41.

    Pickensrooter, Pose 2 appears on page 25 and 63. On page 25 he is pointing to a "B" with his big toe. On page 63 he is pointing to either the "E" or the entire word "THE"

    Pickensrooter, Pose 3 appears on page 45 and is reversed on page 55. On page 45, he points to the dragon/serpent on a 5x5 grid. On page 55, he points to a "T".

    Flower Fairy #2 appears on page 52, 69, and 88. On page 52, she points to an "F", on page 69, she is reversed and points to a "T", and on page 88 she points to an "I"

    Ana, looking flower fairy-ish, appears on page 66, not pointing, but actually becoming a "T"

    Flower Fairy #3 appears on page 78, pointing to an "R"

    The Pickensrooter is the same all the way through, but takes on 3 poses - he also appears with Kootenstoopit #2 on page 41.

    Incidentally, each Kootenstoopit points to a puzzle piece at one point. There are 6 additional puzzle pieces scattered on other pages (29, 35, 75, 82, 87, 95) without anyone pointing to them.

    I have NO idea what any of this means, but I thought it might start some thoughts for other people... Happy hunting!
