Sock 2

Welcome to another week of Sock 2, the greatest competition ON THE PLANET! Well, think what you will of it, but this contest has become my summer RPG. It's time consuming but a ton of fun, and I'm highly enjoying hearing reactions, opinions, comments, and so forth from all of you. There's much more to come, though, so hang on tight.

Today's Tips:

  • Just because you know there's a summoner class does NOT mean that you can level up in that class, so don't bother asking. You have to make it available somehow. If you don't know how, then you'll just have to figure it out!
  • Again, you have to obtain benchmark items in turn. That is, you have to get a 50-point item before you get a 75-point one, and so on. Benchmark items are a one-time-deal, so make your choices very wisely!

Dun dun dun! Let's start.

--------

Silver Falls was a remarkable place, because it looked so incredibly larger close-up than it did from afar. The water crashed down from some source within a huge mountain. Storm clouds appeared to be gathering in the sky above, making the landmark seem eerily intimidating.

"It looks like it's going to rain," commented Shayla.

"There's a big surprise. This is NOT going to be an easy climb for us!" Lily made her way towards the narrow pathway leading upwards and into the mountain. "This place is riddled with a network of caves. They must have taken Arzak to the top to isolate him as much as possible, but getting to him might be awfully inconvenient for us."

"We can do it!" Scott said. "It's worth the challenge!"

And up we went, as the sky continued to darken...

--------

The arms of most awesome might
And equipment fine and dandy
Can be uncovered only through the light Of the bittersweet Rare Candy.

Yesterday's Answers

#43:
b) Dragon Quest II (35 Points)
Ohhh... this one was terribly done. Yes, DQIII was the first to introduce a spell that caused confusion, but you could at times confuse your foes in Dragon Warrior II by using the Chance spell, if you were lucky. This may go down in history as the worst-answered question ever.

#44:
c) HP + 200, Def + 4, Eva + 2 (35 Experience)
This should have been fairly straightforward, especially if you own Final Fantasy X.


Today's Questions
Today's Consolation Points: 8

#45:
What drink can a Scalding Coffee Cup spill on your party, causing massive damage?
(25 points)

a) Black Coffee
b) Cappuccino
c) Latte
d) Mocha
e) Espresso


#46:
Demi Moore's beloved hubby shares his name with a Tri-Ace character afflicted by what? (30 Points)

a) Awful, horrible luck
b) A terrible case of bad breath
c) A demonic possession
d) A destructive addiction to gambling
e) A propensity to sweat profusely



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!"
