    Default ttadmin says it's not over??

    Ok, so ttadmin over on the main site in a thread called
    "TTADMIN-- final announcement?" (I won't link it because their board makes huge links and I'm too lazy to go use tinyurl...

    "It ain't over till it's over." ... Yogi Berra

    Stay tuned.
    ----------------------



    I say this:

    ------------
    If this means "there are more than 13 tokens" then I say "wow, great news, that's really cool, how much money did MS really plan to give away!!!"

    It this means "the fat lady has posted pictures of all 13 tokens and they are all gone and there is -in reality- nothing else of value to go find, but we are just stalling on saying that the fat lady has sung" then I say "Give it up already, it's not cool to pretend there are more than 13 when there aren't."

    If you don't want to breach your redemption process and admit that it's over before your lawyers have done their job, just say so...or don't say anything.

    Kind-of-sort-of-hinting that there might be more than the 13 --ALREADY FOUND-- tokens out there... to sell more books or keep people's interest or whatever... is condescending to your faithful followers and cruel to the die hards who want to believe that it will never end.

    The several levels of obfuscation between the hunters and the author (through ttadmins and lawyers and ad companies) makes me think that no one is really accountable for what is said and what is implied or what is promised.

    So, in a few weeks when all is known, I'd say now that if there are only 13, then this recent post by ttadmin is a mean tease. If there are more, well, who can complain about that?

    I've always been suspicious of Clue 3!

    I've always had the same feeling about Clue #3. It is meaningless now that Pook was found unless there is something else to hunt for, and I don't think it is meaningless.

    I have always thought there was some type of "grand prize" that would incorporate features of the already solved puzzles into one large puzzle. I have thought the clue #3 either showed this or a clue to Pook. Pook has been found using what I think is the last remaining obvious clue in the book.

    Omg... If there are more than there are already... I will never have a life again... lol.

    Reasons that there might be more:

    1. Clue #3 is still relevant...
    2. Stadther hasn't handed out any jewels yet.
    3. He's laughing at us...
    (Us attacking Stadther for not awarding the jewels yet. ==> wned: <== MS)
    (I love these new smileys!!! :thumbsup: )

    My two cents...

    Remember that jewelry box Zac gave Ana?? ahem... 25 boxes!!!
    Visual time!!!

    Code:
    |1 |2 |3 |4 |5 |
    |6 |7 |8 |9 |10|
    |11|12|13|14|15|
    |16|17|18|19|20|
    |21|22|23|24|25|
    Imagine that that has horizontal lines... Stupid code wont allow html...
    Anyhoo, the thirteenth jewel would be displayed proudly wouldn't it? Pook is the most important character in the book, so he should be at the center.

    The next twelve will be the mates, if there are any... that's my take at least...

    I do not beleive there are any mates.

    Where are the clues to the mates?
    Why have no mates been found, when all tokens and Pook have been.

    Where would he hide them? In the same location or park?
    If so, do you think one of mates would have been found in Newaygo (probably the most searched over park of them all).

    Just my opinion... :thumbsup:

    My guess is that there are a number of Pook crystal figures around to be found. I don't believe there is actually an appraisal value for the Pook crystal. I just read on one of the forums that someone said M.S. mentioned the Pook crystal was worth apx. $l,500 .

    Extending the hunt with multiple Pook crystals seems logical to me as a great way to keep book sales and the treasure hunt alive for newbees, too. Pook IS the hero and the cost is not as much of an issue. As a matter of fact, for most of us, I think Pook is a definite "keeper".

    Lol, in advance, I apologize for any sarcasm...

    #1 Good for you, I believe it's possible, but I do hope....
    #2 No clue
    #3 Because they were not announced... They are a "hidden" treasure.
    #4 No clue
    #5 Prolly not
    #6 Prolly not

    Just my opinion :boogie:

    I just can't get over how cool these smilies are!!!

    Personally, I'm still not satisfied that the extra pointing fairy map is a proper match for Pook. I haven't heard anyone give a satisfactory answer as to how it matches up. So, we might have one map still which is leftover.

    As far as what any further jewels might be... Rusful does come to mind. If I recall correctly he was crystallized as well.

    Ohh! *Please* don't let it be Rusful! If it is, and I find him, not only would he have been turned into a crystal, he'd also be turned into *money*! Who wants a 'Rusful' around the house?

    I wouldn't complain a bit, though, if there's another Pook out there, for my little 'Pookie'!
    Yeah, more Pooks... That's the ticket!
