    Default SATOR Square

    I am still interested in knowing what all the clues mean.

    If you construct a 5X5 grid the size of the SATOR square, and remove the squares which correspond to yellow runes in the rune puzzle, then overlay the mask, you get the word "STONES".

    STONES is not in the essay, so it must be another clue to the Job 5:23 phrase in the Jack Grid. Indeed, it is one of the words in that phrase, and it implies how to find the phrase in the grid.

    So it is a clue. Anyone agree? Or does anyone have a better explanation?

    That sounds good - i'd be interested in the phrase you got from the Queen of Scots cipher (bit busy to do it for myself right now

    When the author said he's keeping some of the solution back as he might use it again - what does he mean?

    Glad to see someone is still interested enough to ask about it.

    The phrase recovered from the Mary Queen of Scotts grid is "LIBRARY HE MEASURED"; yes, the expected word "library".

    If you look at my previous post: http://tweleve.org/tavernier-stones/25812-text.html

    You will realize that with that one little phrase, and two reasonable guesses, you can get to Job 2:23, which makes me wonder if the person who found the diamond page got any further than this. Going further, I wonder if the three missing phrases were actually hidden, or were "lost", like the torn part of the map border in the book. I asked the author for further clarifications, but none have been forthcoming.

    As for the "secret passages" and other things he is holding back, I have no idea what he means is going to happen with that. The implication is that there might be future hunts, but if they involve this book or another, I don't know.

    I was going to post the solutions for everything I got, with the questions that remain. Do you think it is worth the effort?

    I would love to see your solutions for this if you want to post them.
