Sock 2

There is still time, and there is a lot of Sock 2 left. If you feel like you're completely out of luck, don't feel too badly- you never know when things could change. A DS Lite is the grand prize- could it end up in your pocket one day?

Today's Tips:

  • It's obvious by this point, but some enemies are very difficult to take down with physical attacks, and others are very difficult to take down with magic. The people with a balance between the two might be finding life a little easier in this respect.

And we march onward!

Hmmm...

A strange door has materialized...

Submission Form


Honesty is important! Don't spoil the game. Keep in mind that masqueraders will be obvious, since two submissions under the same name will cause me to fire an e-mail to the true competitor based on my records, where I can verify their actions. Anybody caught cheating in this manner will be immediately removed from the competition!

Please fill out your nickname and your actions for the day! Place your answer choices in the respective boxes (don't worry about being precise with wording or anything), and write your action in the action box. You can equip or unequip stuff once per day without taking your action up, too. Examples of actions could be "I want to attack Li'l Ant!" or "I want to buy two Eye Dropses!" or "I want to buy a Wood Sword and Smelling Salts, and I want to equip the Wood Sword!"
