I know that the wiki mentions "look west" can be found in the fence and "Boston" can found in the fay's hair, but it seems like there's an a lot more in the fence than just "look west".

I think I've figured out what's there, but I don't want to bother posting more if it's already known. If what I see is true, I think it narrows the Boston search area down a little bit.


Depending who you ask, the fence does not spell anything out. The theory is that it is the actual dig sites in order. It is an interesting theory, especially since it has matched up pretty well to the sites where casques have been found and some sites that are suspected.

I agree, that is an interesting theory. I had never heard that before. I'll have to take a look at it again and see what I can see.

I didn't really see cities in there, but I'd be open to it if someone could give examples. Mostly, I just see what I saw before:

"look southwest of highway 2A"

If that's what it really says then it rules out the North End and narrows it down to Charlesgate, Back Bay Fens, BU areas. So still lots of potential spots to search.

I'll admit that I'm not familiar with this theory NYC. Can you point me to the thread where it was discussed?

Has anyone taken an image of the fence and overlaid what words they see using MS Paint or something ? (I'm thinking other than "Look" which is easy to see and "Boston" in the creature's hair.)

You can read the thread that i just posted I link to. Nobody really posted their research regarding the fence page. It would be a great idea though.

I did. There is very little substance to it, and none once the thread devolves into a pissing contest. Certainly nothing that would support the following statement:
NYC said: The theory is that it is the actual dig sites in order. It is an interesting theory, especially since it has matched up pretty well to the sites where casques have been found and some sites that are suspected.

An easy test would be to see which panels match up with the two solved puzzles, and in what way. Presumably, they would correspond to the first few panels since most people agree that both Cleveland and Chicago are amongst the most basic of the twelve. The OP was asked several times to include this information, but she declined. Which is her right.
Thanks for the reply NYC.

No problem.
I don't see it either. I see the Boston, I guess. The "t" doesn't really look like a " t" but other then that, ok.

Someone sent me an mspaint diagram for the front of the book showing digspots like... a year ago. I think it was the same poster.
If I remeber correctly she had just started researching it and it didnt make a whole lot of sense at the time.


Then she moved on to the 12 tribes stuff. I'm not sure if she picked the gate back up or not.

(Nm I was confusing karleen with someone else)

I started the convo : https://imgur.com/a/k0OqrKc
However, from what I've discovered, it makes an argument for locations that people are not fond of so I dropped it.
Everyday is a great day for a puzzle!

I can't speak for other people, by I'm partial to the Greek Garden in the CCG, and the N/W corner of Grant Park, hard by the Art Museum. Can you make an argument for those two?

The gnome is most likely preiss' caricature and his hair reads Byron.
Also there are 14 fence posts and 14 fence panels; one post is between the pages (post finial half shown).

Still 14. And still no idea how this is supposed to help. I'll add it to the list.
