    Default Key?

    Probably nothing but...

    Taking the alternate names for the darklings from p.57
    SKRILEERS
    YARTHKINS
    WRAITHS

    I came up with:
    The Snails key is with rrr's ark

    I took the 3 r's and found that the only chapter title with 3 r's is ch.14, Rusful's return, p.66, also the page with both snails. The ark part I'm not sure about but the letter box could be considered an Ark and it conatains the small 's' in the lower left corner and the word 'the' (There is the first word of the chapter but only THE is contained in the box. Let me know what you think.

    Just thought I'd mention this, but Chapter 4, "The Forest Creatures," also has 3 occurences of the letter R. This was interesting to me, as the ribbon from Chapter Four's title page makes an arch shape, but I can't make the connection.

    It is the first mention of snail after the prologue, maybe?

    The definition of "ark" is "refuge, shelter". If the rrr's are refering to Rusful, could be something to do with the grotto.

    I don't think it's referring to Rusful. Where would reading, writing and 'rithmetic's refuge or shelter be?? A school? A book?

    Stu.... Thanks for sharing a new idea! Way to think "out of the box"!!

    I think this is worth more checking into. Has anyone found a place in the text that might use a simile of "r's"?

    I believe the word Snail is only listed 18 times in the text. Using a standard alphabet, the letter R is 18.

    There are 25 letters here. While I know that Wraith is an actual word, Skrileers and Yarthkins are fabricated so this could definitely be an anagram. Yet, there are so many letters, it becomes near impossible an allows for too many possibilities.
    What is the sound of one hand clapping?
