No cats or investigations of photographers please.
Same goes for Sparring,Loitering,Suppers and Games of chess! Sure I'll accept them occasionaly but I wont help you grind them most of the time.
But calling cards are highly welcome! (Got too much influence for cards at the moment. Sorry!)

Haha I just wrote the word "rats" over and over for my answers (and made bad rat puns) and that somehow got me five correct answers. I am thoroughly chuffed.

With regards to how many questions there were, I just counted the number of questions recorded here:

11 for me, not bad, but I did think a few more had been puzzled out than that. Really looking forward to seeing the answers! (Actually more excited for that than for the fate, though that is certainly very nice too.)

I got 7, but I didn't answer every question. Some because I didn't know the answer at all, and others because I wanted to go look up a reference (or write one out, in the case of how many Masters there are) and then got distracted and didn't manage to get back to it before the questions closed.

o_O I got 7 as Seeker of Names... which I THOUGHT I only gave joke answers to.

Flyte, did you accept funny ones as well? Or did I actually get some correct?

DragonRidingSorceress is an Author of good standing. Mostly good standing. She's happy to accept any social action except Photographer and Loitering, but requests warnings before duping/poisoning/etc.

Seeker of Names is a... being with an obsession. They're willing to accept all invitations.
One who seeks to know all that is and may be. One who dances in the silence of the void. One whose fantasies make the reality come alive.

I didn't accept answers simply for being funny, but I tried not to be pedantic. So had someone answered 'In which continent was the Third City?' with 'rat america' -- to take a purely hypothetical example -- I would have accepted it. Not that anyone would submit an answer like that, of course.

I got 12 and am thoroughly amused by the correct answers, though I agree the foxes one was entirely unfair. Allegedly hinted, but I'm sure I never saw any hints toward that. Did anyone else?

Turns out my fixating on the number eleven was correct, but in the wrong way! Gah. So it goes. I *knew* it was significant!

Alas, Asclepius Unbound is now forever beyond the reach of invitations. A successful Seeker.

Ah drat! I SAID the echoes were because they needed them to see, and then I was swayed by the more popular answer about it being the first currency. DRAT. Last time I listen to popular advice... unless someone thinks I should? :p

I managed 9 correct with my main and 10 with my alt--though how I missed one answer with my main, given what I knew, I cannot now figure.

    Big congratulations to Wieland Burandt, who is officially the only person to have correctly answered 16 questions!

    I was rather astonished by how few players answered 14 or higher: a measly 41, or about 1 for every 1000 players who answered at least one question correctly. If I'm not mistaken, that's roughly equivalent to the number of active posters on this forum, meaning that we probably know every single person in that elite group. Wow!

    Got 12 in an alt and 7 in my main character. 12 is when following someone else’s theories on the answers and 7 is going with the most common answers then, more or less.


    After reading the statistics, I have to ask: Who is the one who got the ‘between the stars’ and ‘where the foxes are’ ones correctly? I’m pretty curious as to know what their thought process for that one was because those answers were a surprise for me.

    As for your question, well, check three posts up.

    References to rats (including ‘rat’, ‘rodent’ and ‘rattus’ but not neologisms like ‘ratcolocation’): 194.


    Haha dang, all that ratfort to rat-ify my ratswers and they didn't even get counted towards the rat total.
    [spoiler]True facts, my answer to the echos question was "the masters, being giant space rats know the value of using ratcolocation to navigate". Ah, I almost said bats, but it was just one letter away from rat, and after all, what is a bat if not a flying rodent? ah well. The continents of Ratrope, Ratfrica, and Ratsia were probably dismissed. I might have got the snuffers one. Although I mentioned it more as protecting the snuffers rather than the prisoners. Its hard to notice a floppy face when its hidden behind a mask afterall. Lots of stuff gets made to be more snuffer friendly, like outlawing death as a valid hiding place in knife and candle. I might have got the one about the consort, Prince Ratbert, assuming "consort" was a valid keyword. I might have got the Ratty Bethlehem Hotel for spelling the last bit of the name right. I -might- have got the King with a hundred Rats for including the word 'hundred'. Uh, I said mr eaten was in the Rats to the North, but I knew better about the godeaters. It just sounded cooler that way and I didnt think about it too hard. Ratalfields, Ratgarden, Ratbone road, and Ratwhich probably no points. Hm, what got me that fifth point. It probably wasnt that the number of masters was "rats" although I used ratleven for the sacks answer, I guess I got the two mix up oops. For the foxes I said something to the effect of how mr rat-candles hunted them to extinction to make the fine coat his mr sacks (at your window) now wears, also all the rat-candles seen in fallen london. Um, I answered the Ratzaar for between the stars. Not sure I get the liberation of the night being between the stars, exactly. I took it as that that was more of an 'event' staged by the revs and the actual thing the revs were attacking in that event was called something like the great chain of existence? idk. I'm a bit confused, if its a thing and not an event. If anyone can tell from the answers here which was probably my fifth point, let me know.[/spoiler]

    Edit: Oh! It was rat america. haha, of course, how could I forget rat america (I choose to believe that having rat america accepted as a valid answer makes it canon that it exists :v ).
