I am doing a contest in which only a certain few can join.
Here's the rules thus far:
-To enter, you must post your request to enter by Thursday.
-Knowledge of Episodes I and II is required. Knowledge of Episode 3 will help lots.
-There will be a maximum of fifteen people allowed to enter. If there are less than nine by Thursday, I will allow requests to noon on Friday.
-I will ask questions, give riddles, and test your know-how. You will be given a set amount of time to solve these. If no one solves them (highly unlikely), you will be given extra time.
-There will be a preliminary round, cutting down to six finalists, before the actual Riddle Me This! competition commences.
-Prizes will be given out according to place in competition.
1st Prize: ???
2nd Prize: A rare Mag
3rd Prize: A rare item
4th+under: ???

More will be said once Friday comes around. Until then...

E-Mail them to me. I will announce if it is correct by post.
However, if posting them seems easier. Either way, I'll hold on saying if they are correct.

Do we get knocked out of the contest completely if we get this wrong or are there other rounds?

If I kicked you out, I wouldn't be much of a host, would I? lol
No, you stay even if you get these wrong, but there are other rounds.

And now, without further ado, the Riddle Me This! competition is now open!
Here are the rules.
-I will give a riddle. You will have Twenty Hours to solve the riddle and E-Mail or post the answer, starting four hours after I posted(If I post at 6:00, answers posted before 10:00 will not be counted). The ones who correctly answer the riddle will get 1 point. If you get it wrong, you get nothing.

-The competition lasts until all questions are answered. There are a total of twenty questions.

-You will be judged on points, but percentage will be up for curiosity's sake.

And now, the first question!

This monster wouldn't last in a war, It barely lasts in the game.

(Due to certain circumstances, you have until midnight on Sunday to answer the first question)

GOLDIE

Ah, but notice how I said nothing about counting everyone else's!
Lol, no, you have points equal to the number you solved.

Also you can post your answers anytime, but not before four hours after I post the question. Now that I think about it, that's kinda dumb when it's not first come first serve. Never mind that. Post or E-Mail anytime.

GOLDIE, however, gets a default point for not being available.
I'll also give Ton and Mini-Bert a point just because it sucks to be stuck in the gutter.

Current Standings
Faulkie: 2 Pts
Mini_Bert: 1 Pts
GOLDIE: 1 Pts
Ton: 1 Pts
Lee-yoshi: 1 Pts

And the riddle...
Revised Riddle: This feathery monster wouldn't last in a war, it barely lasts in the game!(You still have until Midnight tomorrow!)

WARNING!
This question becomes void at midnight! So far, only Mini_Bert has answered!
Faulkie is out until Wednesday, so she gets a free point for every two questions she misses.
Also, remember, that if you tie, you tie for the lowest possible place!
So get to answering!

This time thing is getting confusing, cant you just say they all have to be in on suday the 23rd of something? Rather than midnight Us time because it changes as you go over the US.

You know i think i could answer, but i dont know which person you're talking about :\

Fireball 8995
19-04-2004, 09:33 PM
Ya'll are gonna hate me after this...
If you note, I capitalized half the persons.
There is but one Person in PSO, and she appears in Ep 1 and 2
She saves a "person" who actually becomes a person in the online quest, Seat of the Heart. This person's name, not the Person's name, is the answer.
But, just so you know, the Person is Elly Person!
The person, which is the answer, is the computer she rescued from the Mines in Ep1... CAL!(or Calus)

Well, nobody got that one... :)
So on to the next riddle!
Suppose you create a new character. Then, over a period of time, you defeat all four areas on Episode 1 up until Dark Falz. If you beat Dark Falz with your new character, what once-per-character event would happen?

BTW, the competition is nearing it's end! Start posting answers if you have even a hunch that they're right! You never know when you may strike gold!

After defeating Dark Falz with a new character, the once per character event that happens is.....

Anyways, this is the last riddle! Think really hard on this one!
