per the meta data in the image posted it's "where to look" and the image was created in photoshop.

Seems like we should examine the ghosts skulls maybe?

Its an optical illusion of the tree skull face using the negative space to make the illusion.

It brings me back to the symbols and wondering if I was correct that merging or overlaying the symbols together in some fashion will show us something, make words in the negative space. I'm really torn here though, after the clue from Jeff it makes me hesitant to put more time into and just wait for a message to decode instead of install photoshop and mess with the symbols. Of course the message to decode could be hidden inside itself, which is what i was originally hoping for.

Well we know the 2021 Scrolls likely have something on them. If someone can get me better images than these
truedungeon.com/files/Rare21.jpg
I have an idea to work on this. Like individual images, like those that are found in tokendb.....

I think I solved the 2021 scrolls, since I don't think they are related I left my work in the scroll decoded thread. And I think the Queen would approve.

Five revealed? Apparently not...
Stare, poking underneath the
words across not-long-ago lines.
---Bog and Gog are identical except for their rune & name. could this mean only 4 unique ghosts?

Cause gusts of wind to billow.
Watch each occurrence, mostly
quite small, for they adumbrate.

I do like this theory, its bothered me for a while that Bog and Gog are the same image, I figured they just didn't have another stock image and had to reuse one, but it could be. The images themselves do not seem to have enough detail (to me) to adumbrate into something though...

I've been following along with this mystery off and on since the start. With a few unexpected days off work I spent the afternoon catching up on everything, and I just wanted to point out two things I noticed:

- Ghost Shog visually looks to be the odd-ghost-out. The other four are all facing directly towards the camera, so to speak. Shog looks a bit turned to the side and looking down/away. I feel like that could fall into the category of a 'quite small' detail.

- Bog and Gog appear identical, as previously mentioned. This doesn't strike me as accidental which also made me think if there is some connection to Smakdown and Dathum having two identical rune cards. Duplicate ghosts, duplicate runes.

I see the symbol for the maple leaf and possible the one for the single question mark in the teeth. That's obviously Spuds MacKenzie above its left eye socket.

The text "where to look" appears in the image in the black area in the bottom left. Haven't spotted anything else in the image.
