Sock 2

I'm sick of writing two intros per day. You have no IDEA how difficult it is to write intros that make sense while trying to suppress the urge to just ramble on about your life. You wouldn't think it would be a big issue, but it really is.

Today's Tips:

  • Haste status does NOT let you take two actions per day! Let's just clear that up right here and now: Haste status allows you to guess twice on every question. Lisez les RULES, merci.

Mmk.

--------

He was hard at work. He had recovered from his terrible injuries, and he was determined to make up for his terrible oversights. It had been days since he had had a great sleep, but he knew that he was running out of time. He had to do something - anything - to help in the horrible fight against the Guardians, especially after they had destroyed everything near and dear to him in Insburgh. Shaky and overcaffeinated, he was getting close to an incredible and devastating discovery...

#129:
b) Truce Canyon (160 Gold)
What in the world was going on with this question? The teleporter at the End of Time is what this question was implicitly referring to, as many of you managed to figure out. Nice job, actually- I thought that would stump more of you. And of course, even though someone "smart" could place an X in three different places to make victory a possibility, it is ALSO theoretically possible for someone with no brain to choose squares such that they'd lose in any of those other circumstances (and thus, there's no "guarantee").

#130:
e) Blue (180 Points)
All four characters have their own colour of Mime-cape, but Blue is not one of them.

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!"
