Are these new prizes that I see? I believe they are. Keep striving, and you'll be there before you know it!

Today's Tips:

  • Again, there is no "Defend" command available by default if you want to take no other actions.
  • It looks like we're going to go through a period where monsters are not as numerous. You might have to find ways to compensate for this difficulty, but remember that everybody has to weather this storm!

All righty.

Yesterday's Answers

#57:
c) 8,000 Gold Coins (35 Points)
This was a question from Secret of Evermore, where multiple currencies can land business-minded people in RPG heaven. If you calculate everything in terms of, say, credits, it makes things a whole lot easier.

#58:
d) 12 (40 Points)
Ah, Sock 2's first obscured question! If you could decipher it, this is what it was supposed to read: "On the only island in the biggest lake of all of Planet Motavia in the original Phantasy Star, how many cacti are there?" Probably not the easiest question in the first place... damn that Saboteur!

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!"
