This game is forcing me to reflect upon my poor scores in certain dailies I really don't like. It's unfortunate, but necessary.

Hang in there! I just went to my history and counted it. Got it on my 27th try.

You're not the only one, gm. We may catch up later - or limp across the finish line months after the first group. smile

Current standings have three players in chapter 3, nine in chapter 2 and 28 in chapter 1. Everyone from 41st place onward is still in the prologue - so no one should worry about being behind. The road to Ascension is a long one!

Still stuck on Obscurity. I've never made that sort of score on this game in my life. Still, the library is more comfortable than the nasty dark place.

Thanks so much for the update!

Hang in there everybody: Wes is truly a benevolent Trivia God and as Greta Olesson (played by Ingrid Bergman) says in "Murder on the Orient Express," "All is for the best" !!!!

Terry --

Instead of having Wes give manual updates, how about a page where you could see the chapter progress of all the players on the Quest? We can already manually reconstruct this info by going to the list of players who have the Questian badgelet and then clicking on each profile.

I've decided to save a lot of bother and have strapped a mattress to my back for the obvious waits that are going to occur. Despite looking like an overfed turtle, I feel sure this accessory will pay dividends in the future.

Sounds like a good idea, I think I may well copy that. I shall equip myself with a flask of coffee, chocolate and a bottle or two of wine as well. Might as well make the waits comfy.

I have an idea. How about creating a link to a page with those stats? People can check on that and see how everyone is doing overall. I don't mean detailed stats, just what you said -- how many are in this or that chapter.

I am taking this from my game admin page by manually counting - nothing I could post. Terry would have to create a public summary of it.

Careful of that wine, Chris. (You may discover why later.)

Even with the gods being so kind as to lower the expectation, I'm not getting the questions I know the answers to!

Thanks Dagny1! Perhaps your encouragment helped. I got through on the 28th attempt :-) Finally a set with lots of 'what is the middle name of?' and 'when was x born?' rather than 'which of the following very obscure lyrics is NOT in this very obscure song?'.

Onwards to what seems to be another headache according to some of the posts a little earlier...

Thanks Barbarini - the upside is that I'm now 3rd in the Obscurity monthly standings :-)

So you heard my blubbering then? I thought it was confined to a 10km radius.

Thanks for your support; I shall always wear it, even if it does chafe a little.

At last I've avoided Wes's snares and made my way out of the Prologue. I'm becoming paranoid, though, reading every instruction a dozen times to see if I can detect any horrid hidden meaning.

Surdoux, may I suggest Vaseline?

I print every screen. By the time I have finished, I should have the makings of a decent-sized novel.
