Hey guys, I still exist. Really. But since I'm never around with any certainty of not being disconnected, and I still love FA too much... Hopefully this idea will work.

I want to run random short quizzes here, whenever I have the time and access to internet. Prizes will be given in game, if not by me, then by a friendly deity (thank you). Quiz questions will all be Avalon related, and will work this way: Whomever sends the most correct answers to me first, via messages on this forum, within three days of posting the quiz, wins. DO NOT POST YOUR ANSWERS. I'll slap. Hard. Very Happy

Anyone who is not active in FA is welcome to answer the questions too, but prizes won't be given. Dante, Serethipas, Maud, sorry! Anyone else who should be on that list, you probably know who you are. So, I'll try to post my first few questions tomorrow or later tonight. I run on USA Pacific time, so tonight might be tomorrow for some of you. Silly Brits. Razz

Quiz Winner

Post  Catyrial on Tue Oct 23, 2007 2:31 am

The winner of my first quiz is the team of Xyris and Kalimantra, with 22 points. Congrats! You guys can split the prize as you like. I'll be posting another quiz sometime soon, hopefully.

Don't be shy, people, participate! I realize these questions probably take more time than normal in-game quizzes, and might take some work to find the answers too. I'll probably be upping the prizes (and anyone who wants to contribute to the prizes can, like the 'pot'), but also changing the rules. To win the full prize, you must answer the quiz perfectly. Otherwise, the winner will get a secondary prize.

I took Dante at his word for that one, the Eleusis orb I actually tried. So that could be wrong. *shrug*

Re: Random Quizzes

Post  Catyrial on Sat Oct 27, 2007 1:40 am

Let's not be idiotic, people. Sure, if you have no idea and just want to be funny, feel free to answer in the silliest way possible. But don't insult me by playing with my wording. As in, Dante, I know that you know what I meant by these questions.

Dante's Answers:

11. Things you can do...
Pick them up, drop them,
(he gave two correct answers here), throw them at someone, attach a rune to them, offer them, collect them all, wield them and use it to bash people...... (I think this is a really bad question)


13. Kill the person who has done the eose quest
(he gave the quest here) and then pick it up. Or wait for said person to log off.




I will admit that some of my questions have, and will have, poor word choice. Unless you want me to write a novel per question (and even then), wording will always be somewhat questionable and twistable. I don't think it's hard to assume that with quest items comes a quest, Dante.

However, thank you Dante, for being the guinea pig for this. And no, Dante, you can't win this, or any of my quizzes in this section. And I will try to edit future questions for more clarity.

Another note, these quizzes are -not- meant for me to show off my knowledge of the land.

Quizzes

Post  Catyrial on Thu Nov 01, 2007 1:57 pm

A benevolent deity showed me that I could easily put these quizzes in game, on the bulletin board, instead of a formal in-game quiz. So, I'll be doing both - in game and here. My original thought was to try to liven up this forum some, but there tends to be more active people that will participate in-game. My in-game quizzes will be on the public bulletin board, of course.
