Lure XX - The Quiz

Post by Khamul the Easterling »

Anyone interested could participate in a quiz during LureXX. As it was the 20th anniversary, there were 20 questions of varying difficulty to be answered.

For those of you interested, here's the quiz again - and the solutions! Total number of points was 25, the winner scored about 20. Most of your scored roughly around 10. Hope you've enjoyed it :)

Hobbit could conceivably defeat the attack associated with permanent event Spider of the Morlat worth 4 MP. At least, until actual documentation overruling MEBA such as a vote in the next ARV! But here I saddle an already taxidermied horse...

Thanks for sharing!
It is not our part here to take thought only for a season, or for a few lives of Men, or for a passing age of the world.
One [online community] with hammer and chisel might mar more than they make... Cautious skill!

Very nice quiz. Got 15,5 points (maybe 16,5, see below).

Some remarks:

4) what about the Fallen Wizard versions of "Gandalf"? shouldn't be the correct answer 17?
10) taking characters taken prisoner into account it would be much more (character) cards :wink:
12) I think the solution is incorrect. Tidings of Death was forgotten, so 4 should be correct.

Thank you, Shapeshifter, for pointing out the mistakes. I'm sorry about these (however, wouldn't have changed the results as the winner was 3-4 points ahead of the one who came second)
You're right about #4 and #12. #10 should have been more specific in that "as by their card text" should've been added. Sorry to everyone for any confusion.

Smaug is actually red-golden: "There he lay, a vast red-golden dragon, fast asleep" (The Hobbit. Inside Information).

The Witch-king does have a helm: "...upon their grey hairs were helms of silver", "The third was taller than the others: his hair was long and gleaming and on his helm was a crown." (FOTR. A Knife in the Dark).

Still, thank you for a very enjoyable quiz.

Smaug: Agree. However, I don't find the Deitrick illustration looks like a "red-golden" dragon.

Witch-king: Yes, the Witch-king bears a crown. Yet his hair can still be seen, and they had "white faces ... with keen and merciless eyes" (LotR I), but these features are not depicted on neither the Witch-king nor his ringwraith equivalent card.

Thanks for your comments, happy you've enjoyed it anyway! :D

In my book the hobbit and Sam who argue in the Green Dragon is Ted Sandyman, not Tim Digiman
