I failed where I was stuck yesterday again. Not trying very hard though since I'm on vacation

I failed, too, Salami and I don't even have the 'holiday' excuse. I didn't have much hope when I started, though.

Yes, someone must have offended the Olympians that they made passing this particular fight so tough today.

You should all make some sacrifices to the Olympians. Large numbers of trivia questions authored will be looked upon extremely favorably smile

You mean that you're open to bribery, Wes? Surely not!

I'm not doing anything. However the powers that control the availability of trivia topics as weapons for heroic battles (commonly known as "random number generator") are obviously displeased and need to be appeased. According to the Oracle of Delphi, sacrifices of bulls and virgins are no longer their preferred method, they would rather receive well-written trivia questions.

I couldn't help a wry smile when I saw the topic - knowing I wouldn't be the only one held up today. wink

I think I'm going to be stuck here for a while so my inner bunny occupied herself and made a new avatar to show stairs at the start of your quest, Wesley. Well, I think the word was 'stairs' - it begins with 's', ends with 'rs', what else could it be? wink

We have one player in chapter 2 already (at the very start of it). A second one is at the final fight of chapter 1 and the currently third placed has just made it past the prologue.

30 folks have made it past what has proven to be a very high hurdle today; the next 71 are at that very hurdle and should hopefully mostly make it onwards soon - unless the bad luck continues smile

As if Wes isn't haunting me enough with his new game, my Daily Challenge for today is: "Play a quiz authored by player WesleyCrusher and score 4 questions correct".

Could we possibly start a new thread for Ascension Quest feedback?

And I'll be stuck for a few months whilst I find a new team that will let me lob with them for a while smile

Anyone who needs to join a team is welcome at Yo' Mammas. Technically, everyone should be a mom, but my husband was both mother and father to his daughter for a while there, and we would have allowed him to join! Also, some of our members are the parents of pets.

I also agree that we need a separate thread for the Ascension Quest.

It is sure to be a very addictive and rewarding exploration, albeit demanding and frustrating at times!

I assume one can begin this game at any date and didn't have to start yesterday. was planning on starting last night but knew I couldn't stay up long enough to get the required points. Can't tonight, either, for the same reasons (morning medical appointments).

If that's not true, please let me know.

Thank you!

Lee

You can start any time. According to Terry, this game may take years to complete so one day won't make the slightest difference. smile

This will be in place for people who are not even members yet - but they will be starting only when they manage to get to Level 100.

I'm not even sure there has been a game that had a date in which you must start and can't join in later...and it's a good thing to, because I really want to play this.

By the way, does anyone know why I keep clicking the link even though I can't play and I've read both the introduction and FAQ more times than I'd like?

The FT Amazing Race (the authoring one) had sign-ups and was retired upon completion. I think that's the only one.

Buddy, it's called OCD. Treatment is simple, but comes at a cost - you will need to give up several cups of coffee to pay for a year's Gold Membership. Dose may need repeating annually.

I won't give anything away, but, Wesley, you are even more evil than I could have imagined. I've learned my lesson the hard way.

Are you referring to the 7th score needed in a certain pattern? That one might need adjusting (the balance for this pattern was based off the achievement badges, I just checked it against some stats)

Three chapter 2 games adjusted to now require one fewer correct - that should unevil it smile
