Congratulations to our king Pishkirlin,
who once again managed to surpass himself in making
the most head-breaking, random trivia of "wtf" and "How am I supposed to know!?" questions.
After 4 hours of intensive research, I've had my dose of litterature and history for this year Wink
I wish everyone who hasn't done it yet good luck, and thank you pish for this great challenge pleased

ps: for some reason I feel that I took a wrong turn in my reasoning somewhere
and that all my answers have absolutely nothing to do ith the questions x)

Yay!
I have just taken a look at the answers... although no one answered correctly to all the questions, for each of them there is at least one who found the correct answer, so I believe it was possible to score 100%.

After 4 hours of intensive research, I've had my dose of litterature and history for this year Wink
I wish everyone who hasn't done it yet good luck, and thank you pish for this great challenge pleased
...and you had also your dose of art, with the paintings challenge! Wooot! The teacher in myself is rejoicing. So you are welcome. Wink

I finished the trivia! Will have more that 2-3 correct answers? No way in hell! xD
Oh, you did much better than that.

So, I would like to repost the link to the Trivia and remind everyone that you have time until today at Midnight...
...because today is the great day!

Happy Ascalon's Day, everyone!

Do you think we can schedule a flag pillage at 4:00pm?
Dress code: maroon and white! Yarrr!

Happy Ascalon's Day, everyone!

It was a very fun pillage! We took a War Brig out, setting the booty division back to Jobber's Delight with 0% restock!
Before starting:

After we ported:


Thanks to: Acerin, Annirawrz*, Auburn, Beccaw, Defrass, Korte, Minaa, Puzzleblind, Sparkywolf and Yamel!

*recruited because she was wearing the national outfit when jobbed!

If you missed the Passage to Ascalon you can still try to recognize all the paintings before I post the solutions.

Is it possible to view these somewhere else or in something other than a (very small) widget? Some of them are just too small for the level of detail in the painting...

Secrets of Ascalon
Secrets should be kept secret, so no solution will be revealed.
It is only given to know that the winner is Acerin, who gets 20 azuls.

Update from the College of Arms:
Acerin went up one rank and he's now Viscount
Yamel became Lord and he's now Baron

One year has passed since Safebet went dormant for the first time. I believe it's time to accept the idea that she's no longer playing the game. I'm downgrading her to Baroness, which is the proper rank she should hold according to the rules of the College of Arms.
