Literally taken maybe the people with the rune cards need to blow on them, or perhaps sprinkle baby powder on them and see if there is any hidden pattern that emerges.

The main thing that leaps out at me is the unusual connection of "not-long-ago" - there is no reason to do that unless it's to manipulate the word count or somehow otherwise make it a clue.

Also - I got a token guide with my V1B treasure (or maybe v1a). I briefly scanned if and I think it had the old glow under blacklight "beware of" sticker but nothing new.


grasping, but there is also some possible punctuation play, so it might be worth tracking as well

I am pretty sure the "Beware of .." that is in the guides is
disney.fandom.com/wiki/Hitchhiking_Ghosts
Ah, there you are and just in time. There's a little matter I forgot to mention: beware of hitchhiking ghosts! ...Ha ha ha ha ha haaa. They have selected you to fill our quota and they'll haunt until you return. Now I will raise the safety bar, and a ghost will follow you home. Ha ha ha ha ha ha haaa.”
―The Ghost Host[src]


And I think this is moderately relevant because the interactive Queue for The Haunted Mansion includes or included
The Secret Library - Push in the books that mysteriously pop out at this haunted bookcase that includes a cryptogram for you to decipher.

When did we get the "2020 Patron Rune Insert Puzzle" category? Has that been there a while?

I think it showed up when the topic showed up, about 3 months ago.

I went searching for Druegar's words. Was amused when I found a message with both "five" and "reveal".

We may not need to wait for a cipher as previously thought, some clues may already be available to us and just need to be found.

Druegar wrote: Five revealed? Apparently not...


Maybe someone was close, but we overlooked something? or maybe indicating we are missing a fifth ?????.

View the source code under something that was recently added to a site (lines of code?).

Druegar wrote: Cause gusts of wind to billow.


Something related to wind or blowing like an instrument or horn? Either this is something to look up, or this is a clue to what the item is.

Some small differences will present us with a clue, perhaps in the source code or with the cipher text symbols.

Is it maybe relevant that this topic was posted under "2020 Gen Con" and not "2020 Patron Rune Insert Puzzle"

Could be. I did a quick once over of the upcoming events Gen Con page. I didn't see anything but doesn't mean nothing was there.

not-long-ago => new => News => go to the News link on the site...
poking underneath the words => click on the Facebook link

I got nothing after that... :)
