Quaestor's Questions

Muz Ashen

08-03-2005 11:59:17

Answer the question, correctly and first to gain a point.

Guess wrong and lose a point.

The person who has the highest score out of each set of ten will earn a Quartz crescent.

Win ten points in a row (the 10 consecutive points may span sets of questions)to win an Topaz Crescent.

Have the highest point total at the end of the comp to win a Legion of the Scholar.
(Medals are pending approval at the moment).

Questions will span topics from HMR/CNS character stuff to Star Wars Canon to other Sci-fi questions.

Have fun, and guess smart!

First Question!

What weapon did Kat Pridemore use oddly on Manji in an ACC training battle?

Link

08-03-2005 12:08:59

B22 Imperial Hold-out Blaster

Muz Ashen

08-03-2005 12:12:00

Point Link.

Question 2)

What was Lenzar's post aboard the 'Fallen Spear' during the K'hamar'an War (the KRoS run-on)?

clarification: what was Lenzar duty aboard the Fallen Spear before Muz sent him out in a fighter ship?

Link

08-03-2005 12:38:10

Lenzar was the tactical on the ship

Muz Ashen

08-03-2005 12:41:06

Point Link.

Question 3)

What race was Jakual Gaiton Ordo (formerly Jack Ordo) before the Jakual Project made him more machine than man?

Xizor

08-03-2005 12:44:55

Mandalorian?

Muz Ashen

08-03-2005 12:52:58

Point Xizor.

Question 4)

What do the symbols on Korras Aquillarum's custom sabre hilt mean?

Xizor

08-03-2005 12:57:53

That's HARD!

Muz Ashen

08-03-2005 13:00:07

no one said that they'd all be easy...

:)

Besides, Korras is online right now...you may start the begging and pleading. Beowulf is also the dude who made it for him, so there's another person to bug...if you can find him.

Link

08-03-2005 13:01:56

*wanders off to bug her master*

he is AFK!

Xizor

08-03-2005 13:05:39

A hint, perhaps?

Xizor

08-03-2005 13:09:24

Bah, I'll try my luck.
Are they two Aurabeth symbols, meaning Seth (s) and Peth (p)?

Muz Ashen

08-03-2005 13:10:07

It's japanese...and something you don't want to call Manji, as he's likely to start swinging blades.

Korras

08-03-2005 13:19:38

It's japanese...and something you don't want to call Manji, as he's likely to start swinging blades.

RoriBeedm

08-03-2005 20:45:33

When Johnner, Christie and Call are watching the home shopping channel, one of the items on sale is a pearl handle, semi-automatic pistol, the very same one wielded by Vasquez in the previous installment 'Aliens'.

Nekura Manji

23-05-2005 05:22:48

Hrmph. Since I'm now the Quaestor, I should probably reinstigate this thing... but I don't have Muz's encyclopaedic knowledge of Star Wars minutaie. Ah well.

We'll void the last question, and start the whole thing anew with this one.... (Note: They're all going to be ridiculously easy since I can't do tough ones :D)

1.) How many 'sticky-up bits' did the Rebel shield generator on Hoth have?

Next question... it's an evil one... (I hope _)

8.) Where did the inspiration for the shape of Darth Vader's helmet come from?

Lech

25-05-2005 08:25:37

I'll ban myself. Now that I got 6 out of 10...I win!!!

Unless Xhedias (apparently the only other member I'm competing with) gets stumped, I'll let "everyone" else get the answer to the rest of the questions. O-)

Xhedias

25-05-2005 08:41:58

A samurai helmet?

Konar

25-05-2005 08:46:11

Ralph McQuarrie's early drafts had Vader board Leia's captured starship by crossing the vacuum of space, a circumstance that necessitated a breathing apparatus - hence came the mask.

- That's all I can think of at any rate :/

Nekura Manji

25-05-2005 09:46:20

Point Xhedias, but...

Since Konar's obviously attained a new level of Star Wars nerd-dom through knowing that, I hereby give him a point as well. :D

Next question! Uh... oh, I know.

9.) What is the name of the capital city of Ralltiir?

Xhedias

Right, that ends this round of questions... results:

Malik: 1
Lech: 7
Xhedias: 2
Konar: 1

So, to nobody's great surprise, Lech wins this round. ^_^ Now go and post in Operation: Frozen Fortress! The next round of questions will start as soon as I've sat down and thought up ten more fiendishly difficult questions, instead of just thinking them up on the spot X-)

Xhedias

26-05-2005 12:14:51

Should we have some kind of system so no one person is dominating every set of questions? That way other people, such as malik myself and maybe even slow konar can particpate more. Sorry lech :P

Nekura Manji

26-05-2005 16:21:50

Nah, it's first come first served. And, of course, you could just google/theforce.net the questions. ^_^ I'll try and think up some evil questions that even Lech can't answer. :D

Now go and post in the Frozen Fortress Operation! Or else! ^_^

Xhedias

26-05-2005 18:17:11

and that means...if lech cant get them, i cant :P

Lech

26-05-2005 19:19:56

Ask questions from the books or something and I might have a hard time answering.

Xhedias

26-05-2005 20:22:04

Wedge Antilles.

Nekura Manji

28-05-2005 05:34:15

Right... thanks to the irrepressible Xhedias coming up 20 more questions, the next round of 10 questions shall now begin!

Note 1: They're from the NJO, so Lech should have a hard time :P
Note 2: Xhedias won't be participating, since he came up with the questions.

That means the rest of you have a chance at snatching Legions of the Scholar! Let's go!

1.) What is the name of the living weapon that the Yuuzhan Vong use?

Lech

28-05-2005 08:50:26

Well, according to the star wars databank, it says Amphistaff. So that's my answer. :D

silverRaven

28-05-2005 13:06:26

Darn you lech your faster.

Nekura Manji

28-05-2005 13:37:02

Nekura Manji

28-05-2005 14:42:32

Nope. But close... ^_^

silverRaven

28-05-2005 15:40:00

Also used in combat are thudbugs, small thrown insects that detonate on impact.

That was copied from the STAR WARS: databank. its thudbugs im sure.

silverRaven

28-05-2005 15:48:41

or is it thud bug with a space or coomb spores? count both of those as answers.

Nekura Manji

29-05-2005 04:41:02

This is why Manji shouldn't run trivia. Blame Xhed- his answer says razorbugs, but apparently they're the same thing. <_<

Point Raven!

Next question...

3.) Who makes Vong creatures?

Lech

29-05-2005 10:12:21

I'll say their god: Yun-Yuuzhan

silverRaven

29-05-2005 15:18:38

The creator yun-yuuzhan

Nekura Manji

29-05-2005 16:37:40

Not what my answer says... *points at Xhedias if that's wrong* :D

silverRaven

29-05-2005 16:44:41

again my answer was from the starwars:database, dont see how its wrong.

Xhedias

29-05-2005 18:02:56

hey now, thats not wrong, think of it this way, what would you guys say if i asked who made your dog? you wouldnt say god...(i hope) but some of you would. so think about it a little more..(ITS NOT A GOD)

silverRaven

29-05-2005 19:21:12

their mother and father. That better?(i feel so stupid)

Nekura Manji

30-05-2005 05:39:58

Xhed, where on earth did you get these answers from? <_<

Lech

30-05-2005 09:22:00

well the shapers create the technology. Maybe that's what you are asking for?

Xhedias

30-05-2005 10:54:25

they arent wrong manji, you just have to THINK outside the box...stupid ass google..blaming me for wrong answers and sheiBe

silverRaven

30-05-2005 11:09:38

So did one of us get the pooint or not??

Kat Pridemore

30-05-2005 12:10:55

Are we referring to the writers? Like George Lucas and RA Salvatore?

Kat

Nekura Manji

30-05-2005 14:57:04

Point Lech.

So... yeah. Next question...

4.) What does Jaina Solo call herself?

Keep guessing... well, according to Xhed's answer. X-)

Anonymous

31-05-2005 11:27:26

Hrm..Jaya?
(Or as what you want is what she calls herself, how about I, me or myself? :P)

Nekura Manji

31-05-2005 12:29:10

Nope... keep trying.

silverRaven

31-05-2005 12:38:44

Godess? Great one?

Xhedias

31-05-2005 14:18:25

lol, theres multiple answers, but one specific one that I was looking for. Just have to guess the right one, remeber, Jaina Solo was a VERY main character in the book, theres bunches of stuff on her.

Nekura Manji

01-06-2005 02:43:39

It would probably be better if the question was changed to 'What name has Jaina Solo been given?' since it wasn't what she called herself.

Xhedias

01-06-2005 07:00:14

MAN KILLER!

i mean..

Lech

01-06-2005 08:29:19

Organa either that or Goddess or Great One

Nekura Manji

01-06-2005 09:38:51

Nope. X-)

silverRaven

01-06-2005 13:26:59

sticks?

silverRaven

01-06-2005 13:31:18

Are you sure its not godess or Great One?

Xhedias

01-06-2005 13:39:56

its defantly not the goddess or great one...dont think a yuuzhan vong title..there was one other one...

silverRaven

01-06-2005 14:08:22

sticks is the only other one she was called

Xhedias

01-06-2005 14:12:38

Many Jedi of the new Academy were frightful/upset for/with her because of this.

silverRaven

01-06-2005 14:57:55

sith, yun-harla??

Lech

01-06-2005 14:59:11

Yun-Harla the trickster goddess

Xhedias

01-06-2005 15:23:27

NOT a yuuzhan vong title/name :P

Nekura Manji

01-06-2005 15:27:10

Another clue: Luke Skywalker gave her this title.

silverRaven

01-06-2005 19:47:45

Blade/sword of the Jedi

silverRaven

01-06-2005 20:11:45

sword of the jedi

Lech

02-06-2005 09:42:42

I'm gonna have to give up on this one...i'm stumped.

Why did I tell them to ask questions from the NJO? Lech thinks to himself.

Nekura Manji

02-06-2005 09:46:25

Point Raven! Finally...

Anyway. Next question!

5.) What are the vulnerable spots of the Vong armour?

Konar

02-06-2005 10:04:38

It's in the armpit.

(Don't quote me though :/)

Nekura Manji

02-06-2005 13:35:25

Point Konar!

Next question...

6.) What is the Capital planet of the Imperial Remnant?

Xhedias

02-06-2005 13:42:31

Dude! I got a question correct without somone being stumped! go meeee! and konar :P

Anonymous

02-06-2005 14:01:37

Bastion (or Byss. Depends on source/time)

Nekura Manji

03-06-2005 04:19:46

Point Lenzar

Next question...

7.) Who diseases Mara Jade?

Xizor

03-06-2005 05:58:56

Can't we please have SOME questions NOT from the EU?

Lech

03-06-2005 08:11:23

Nom Anor

Nekura Manji

03-06-2005 09:26:04

Point Lech

And Xi, this is a round of EU questions- the first round I did were mostly from the films. This is because Lech was completely PWNING the standard trivia, so to give other people an improved chance Xhed did some questions from the EU- which, apparently, Lech is weaker on. After this round I'll try and think of some more trivia from the films.

Next question...
8.) What injuries does Leia Organa-Solo get on Duros?

Lech

03-06-2005 10:33:39

She badly bruised her legs

Nekura Manji

03-06-2005 15:29:06

Nope, not just bruises.

Lech

03-06-2005 15:44:09

severs them?

EDIT: We should do this like Jeopardy. Answer in the form of a question and you give us the answer to work with. :w00t: (I included this face just because I think it's funny everytime I look at it.

EDIT, EDIT: No wait...she paralyizes them?

Nekura Manji

03-06-2005 17:47:28

Keep trying....

(And no, that would make it even more difficult/frustrating than it is already X-))

Macron Sadow

04-06-2005 11:32:00

they get broken?

Nekura Manji

04-06-2005 13:10:35

Nope. Continue trying.... :D

silverRaven

04-06-2005 16:38:57

she was tortured by the yuuzhan voong, im still searching here...darn this one is hard

Xhedias

04-06-2005 21:22:28

MRAH!

silverRaven

05-06-2005 15:56:07

it was poisoned and/or burned.(please be right, please be right...)

silverRaven

05-06-2005 15:58:11

her leg got infected, and was amputated because of poisoning. but it was healed by Jacen solo.

And sorry bout the double post

Nekura Manji

05-06-2005 16:01:32

Nobody's mentioned the simplest injury that it's possible to get yet.

Xhedias

05-06-2005 16:02:13

Your correct that Jacen kept her alive, but thats not what i asked :D

silverRaven

05-06-2005 16:04:12

sprained/ broken because of poisoning?

Anonymous

05-06-2005 16:04:55

The blood flow to her legs were cut off by some sort of squeezing creature. It caused her legs to be badly paralyzed.

Nekura Manji

05-06-2005 16:05:16

Nope. Simpler than that.

silverRaven

05-06-2005 16:07:23

ah ha!

she was unconsious because of poisoning!

Nekura Manji

05-06-2005 16:18:57

You're so far off track that you're going the opposite way on a train heading for Alaska. Forget about the poisoning. ^_^

silverRaven

05-06-2005 16:26:13

then she was knocked out

Nekura Manji

05-06-2005 16:28:38

Worse than that.

silverRaven

05-06-2005 18:17:47

A coma?

Xhedias

05-06-2005 18:49:54

Nope, not quite that bad.

silverRaven

05-06-2005 18:51:58

well its worse than unconcious but not as bad as a coma. nothing is inbetween!

wait maybe its paralyzed?

or is it fainted?

Kat Pridemore

05-06-2005 20:46:28

Um... I don't really know, but the only in the middle I see is just cuts.
She got cuts on her legs....


Kat Pridemore

silverRaven

05-06-2005 21:03:53

badly scarred and partly bled to death.

Nekura Manji

06-06-2005 07:30:00

I'm going to give you both a point since Kat got the gist of it then Raven elaborated. So-

Point Kat and Raven!

Next question...

9.) How does Ithor get destroyed?

Lech

06-06-2005 08:10:54

The Yuuzhan Vong poisoned their planet with biological weapons

Nekura Manji

06-06-2005 09:55:02

Point Lech.

Next question...

10.) What is the planet of the prophecy?

Lech

06-06-2005 10:01:55

Zonama Sekot

silverRaven

06-06-2005 12:11:08

its Zonama Sekot.

I'm going to kill you lech.

Nekura Manji

06-06-2005 15:25:15

Heheh... I'm going to be picky and ask you to spell it properly so Raven has a chance :P

Nekura Manji

06-06-2005 15:58:54

Urgh. Apparently it is actually spelled Zonama Sekot. Xhed, why do we keep you around? :D

So... Point Lech!

That means that the final scores for this round are as follows:

Lech: 4
Raven: 3
Konar: 1
Lenzar: 1
Kat: 1


Which means that Lech once again wins by a miniscule margin. The next round of questions will be 'normal' ones around the films, while the round after that will be Xhed's NJO questions again. Give me a couple of days to get some questions down and the competition will continue. ^_^

Xhedias

06-06-2005 16:24:27

I dont know, ask Xanos why he didnt prep the plane yet...

Nekura Manji

18-06-2005 11:43:23

Okay, ladies and gents... the next round shall now begin. All of you remain poised so that you can defeat Lech, the reigning trivia champion ^_^

Note: they'll all be pretty easy since I suck at hard trivia.

1.) How did the crew of the Millenium Falcon evade an Imperial sensor crew?

Macron Sadow

18-06-2005 12:26:30

by hiding in the garbage when they dumped it

Nekura Manji

18-06-2005 12:37:00

Nope... guess again. ^_^

Macron Sadow

18-06-2005 12:43:20

by flying inot a cave with a giant space slug

Nekura Manji

18-06-2005 13:20:43

Nope, try again. ^_^

Shinichi Endymiron K

18-06-2005 19:01:04

By shutting down all non-essential power and attaching themselves to the back end of the bridge section of the Star Destroyer.

Macron Sadow

18-06-2005 19:16:54

By smacking Luke upside the head with a greasy trout

Xhedias

19-06-2005 14:22:37

By remaining quiet so none of the pings woould go back to the imperials, making them invisible to radar

silverRaven

19-06-2005 18:56:32

What Tharivol said. the attached theselves to the command tower and shut down all unnesccisary systems so the Falcon appeared to be part of the star destroyer.

Konar

20-06-2005 03:11:55

Solo has extra comparments for storage in the inner floor of the Milenium Falcon. When the Imperials boarded, they couldn't find them as they had hidden in the compartments.

Nekura Manji

20-06-2005 03:17:32

Point Konar!

Dudes, the Imperial sensor crew was the one that carried a big box thing on board the Falcon when it landed in the Death Star. ^_^

Next question...

Which planet did Anakin and Obi-Wan duel on?

Konar

20-06-2005 07:11:12

Mustafar

Nekura Manji

20-06-2005 11:08:30

Point Konar!

Next question...

3.) Name one of the institutions that was convinced to support the Seperatists.

silverRaven

20-06-2005 15:17:59

Which one ? I'll say techno union, IG banking clan if you want two.

Or is it the people? S ill add Nute Gunray as a possible answer.

Nekura Manji

20-06-2005 16:45:44

Point Raven!

Next question...

4.) Name the Ewok whom Leia befriended.

Link

20-06-2005 16:56:04

Wicket Warrick

silverRaven

20-06-2005 17:39:04

Wicket W. Warrick.

Xhedias

20-06-2005 17:42:01

-.-

Nekura Manji

21-06-2005 10:59:25

Point Link and Raven

Since Link got in first but Raven got the middle name as well, I'll give you both a point. Next question!

5.) Who was the Imperial officer Force-choked by Darth Vader for "failing" him?

silverRaven

21-06-2005 11:30:43

Admiral Azule.(not sure how its spelled.)

Or is it Captain Nadir? he killed him too.

Nekura Manji

21-06-2005 12:35:43

Check the spelling and try again.

silverRaven

21-06-2005 12:48:54

Admiral Azul?

Adzul?

You better gimme this point :P

Anonymous

21-06-2005 15:34:45

Damn my brother...

Xhedias

21-06-2005 15:36:23

Admiral Motti was force choked in the board room cuz he talked [Expletive Deleted] about vader. In a sense that is failing him?

Nekura Manji

21-06-2005 15:52:23

Nope... think about why it's in quote marks. ^_^

And Raven... keep trying. You're painfully close, but I'm going to insist on something that looks remotely like the name I've got down :P

Shinichi Endymiron K

21-06-2005 16:20:25

Admiral Ozzel

Xhedias

21-06-2005 16:26:08

We get points for answering the question right even though someone said it before me? I didnt know that...

silverRaven

21-06-2005 17:04:44

Admiral Ozzel.

Or is it Ozzul?

Lech

21-06-2005 17:38:09

No point for me..but if you want the full name of that guy...Kendal Ozzel

silverRaven

21-06-2005 18:32:46

BTW lech here's your signature->http://xs34.xs.to/pics/05252/lech.jpg

Anonymous

21-06-2005 19:47:47

I believe it was Captain Lorth Needa.

Xhedias

21-06-2005 21:50:45

Kendal Ozzel?

Nekura Manji

22-06-2005 12:52:07

It was in fact Ozzel, in the famous scene:

"You have failed me for the last time, Admiral." /Force choke

Sooo... Point Tharivol and Raven!

Because Raven was painfully close, it would be kinda harsh not to give him a point. And Xhed- explain to me how Azule looks anything like Ozzel? :blink:

Next question!

6.) Why did Yoda initially refuse to train Luke?

Xhedias

22-06-2005 12:53:31

He was to old

silverRaven

22-06-2005 12:57:32

Many reasons-Too old(like anikin(i cant spell)), Reckless, Not paying attention to WHERE HE WAS, WHAT HE WAS DOING!

Nekura Manji

22-06-2005 13:31:50

I'm thinking of a specific quote, really.

Xhedias

22-06-2005 13:42:02

Yoda : "He is too old. Yes, too old to begin the training."

silverRaven

22-06-2005 15:39:51

He is too old. Yes, too old to begin the training

Anonymous

22-06-2005 15:45:21

He was too old and didnt have any patience.

Nekura Manji

23-06-2005 05:21:07

Hrn? In the film I've got it has Yoda saying: "I cannot teach him. The boy is impatient." Ah yes. There's more than one reason, which you picked up on. Stupid Manji.

Uhm...

Point Xhedias!

By a margin of four minutes. Next question (nice and easy):

7.) How did Luke escape Darth Vader on Bespin?

Konar

23-06-2005 05:30:24

He released his hold of an outside platform in one of bespin's many air vents. He naturally fell through a hole and ended up being thrown onto a metal stucture below cloud city due to the force of his fall (presumably a garbage shoot).

- He was engaged in combat, Vader's chopped his hand off, he let go - circumstance of escape.

Xhedias

23-06-2005 10:59:45

What konar said.

Nekura Manji

23-06-2005 11:13:53

Point Konar!

Next question:

8.) What did Luke want to go into town to pick up?

silverRaven

23-06-2005 14:19:10

Power converters

Xhedias

23-06-2005 15:17:43

Power Converters

Nekura Manji

23-06-2005 16:06:59

Point Raven!

Next question:

9.) Name Luke's aunt.

Shinichi Endymiron K

23-06-2005 16:13:35

Beru

Nekura Manji

23-06-2005 16:16:45

Got a second name?

Shinichi Endymiron K

23-06-2005 16:20:15

Beru Lars

Nekura Manji

23-06-2005 16:22:39

Point Tharivol!

Next question...

10.) Where did Han Solo obtain the Millenium Falcon?

Shinichi Endymiron K

23-06-2005 16:27:21

Solo won it in a sabacc game against Lando Calrissian.

Nekura Manji

23-06-2005 16:33:13

Point Tharivol!

Okay... that ends that round. And the scores are:

Konar: 3
Raven: 4-- Winner
Link: 1
Tharivol: 3
Xhedias: 1

Which makes Raven the winner. Congrats! The next round will begin in a few days. ^_^

Lech

23-06-2005 17:00:33

Congrats Raven! Way to represent the Night Hawks!

silverRaven

23-06-2005 17:41:23

w00t!!! YES! *bows*

Lech, next time give me a challenge. :P

Xhedias

24-06-2005 14:04:01

Great job raven....lets see how the next set of quesions come out >:)

silverRaven

24-06-2005 14:54:49

Well I've been reading the NJO books, I'm on blance point (thats book 6 out of 20), I really gonna try and get two wins in a row.

Shinichi Endymiron K

24-06-2005 15:51:02

Good Luck. I may actually try and compete now. Before I was just like "heh questions...ok" But now I'll actually check in.

Konar

26-06-2005 07:35:40

I'm gonna quit if I'm up against geeks :P.
- then naturally I'll come over to both of your houses and burn all your Star Wars books so I can still earn points in this game :P.

- and no, this doesn't mean I'm desperate, it means I'm modestly motivated ;).

Shinichi Endymiron K

26-06-2005 11:22:15

Riiiiiiiiiiiiight

silverRaven

26-06-2005 13:15:26

YOU SHALL NEVER TOUCH MY LIBRARY!

Macron Sadow

29-06-2005 09:05:24

All the blasted questions get answered when I'm at work anyhow... bah.

Shinichi Endymiron K

29-06-2005 09:29:51

Speaking of...when are we going to have more questions?

silverRaven

29-06-2005 12:39:38

Soon. We are waiting on YOU Xhed.

Xhedias

29-06-2005 12:46:21

No we aren't, so watch your mouth. Go poke manji and tell him to put his man beating stick down.

Nekura Manji

29-06-2005 15:20:21

Shaddap all of you.

THE NEXT ROUND SHALL BEGIN!!

1.) What is the difference between Zenoma and Sekot?

Shinichi Endymiron K

29-06-2005 15:25:08

Besides the fact that it's spelled Zonama Sekot? Zonama is the planet, Sekot is the humanoid interface that controls the planet.

Nekura Manji

30-06-2005 13:38:28

Works for me. And blame Xhed for the spelling. In fact, blame Xhed for everything, it's more fun. ^_^

Point Tharivol!

Next question...

2.) Who is the Supreme Overlord?

Xhedias

30-06-2005 13:54:35

Yea, blame me...sounds familiar...

Lech

30-06-2005 16:12:39

Shimrra

Shinichi Endymiron K

30-06-2005 21:15:51

Onimi

Konar

30-06-2005 23:21:42

Supreme Overlord Shimrra but he becomes Yuuzhan'tar.

Macron Sadow

30-06-2005 23:51:17

A big fat stubby ale

Shinichi Endymiron K

01-07-2005 02:27:21

No it's Onimi. When Shimrra is killed the Vong feel nothing. It isn't until Onimi, who can use the force and controls Shimrra's mind, is killed that the Vong feel his death and the Worldship begins to die.

Nekura Manji

02-07-2005 13:15:21

My answer says Shimmra... Xhed, care to step in and get beaten? :P

Shinichi Endymiron K

02-07-2005 13:52:15

It's in the end of the Unifying Force. Shimrra was just a puppet of Onimi.

silverRaven

02-07-2005 14:04:18

ITS SHIMRRA I JUST READ IT!

And how dare you start without me! ( I had to go to grannies to use her computer X-) )

Xhedias

02-07-2005 15:19:33

Since the question was already answered with the two possible answers. Think of it this way, if the mob control President Bush who would be the president? Bush, cuz he has the overall capablity to make descions or the mob to put pressure on him to make the descions they want. It would be Bush cuz the is the "official" figure.

silverRaven

02-07-2005 15:31:51

Exactly. Although Onimi controls Shimrra, Shimrra is the official figure. Now give me the point already. :P

Shinichi Endymiron K

02-07-2005 21:29:16

It wasn't a mob. It was one person. And he didn't control Shimrra by convincing him to do things he directly controled his mind. Therefor he was in fact the actual Supreme Overlord. Shimrra just held the title. Anyway I think we should both get a point.

Xhedias

02-07-2005 22:39:47

And Im making a point, that the person that sits on the throne has the power, wether being controlled or not, the answer stands :P

Shinichi Endymiron K

03-07-2005 02:14:36

It's wrong.

silverRaven

03-07-2005 09:24:43

From a certain point of veiw. (remember what obi-wan said its true in real life too)

Shinichi Endymiron K

03-07-2005 11:33:00

Like I said I think we both should get the point since we're both right.

Nekura Manji

03-07-2005 12:40:51

*rains down fire to stop the bickering*

Now that you're all charred wrecks of your former selves, I shall bring judgement.

Point Lech (for getting the answer first) and point Tharivol (for an extremely convincing explanation of his answer). There. Settled. NEXT QUESTION!

3.) What identity does Nom Anor take?

silverRaven

03-07-2005 13:35:43

He takes one as Pedric Cuf, and also takes on the identity Dr. Dassid Cree'Ar. Bth of them are Nom Anor, though Pedric Cuf is used more.

Shinichi Endymiron K

03-07-2005 14:45:51

He takes the Identity of the Yuuzhan Vong prophet Yu'Shaa.

Nekura Manji

04-07-2005 11:20:25

Point Tharivol.

Next question...

4.) What weapon did Jacen and Anakin debate on using?

silverRaven

04-07-2005 11:34:12

HE GOT IT???

its Centerpoint Station.

Shinichi Endymiron K

04-07-2005 11:41:13

Yeah it's Centerpoint.
Also they debated about the Force. Anakin thought it was a tool and a weapon to be used whenever, Jacen was more passive and believed that using the force as a weapon would lead to the dark side.

silverRaven

04-07-2005 12:28:57

Yea they did debate about the force too.

Nekura Manji

05-07-2005 03:27:07

Point Raven!

Next question...

5.) At the battle of Fondor, 3/4 of a fleet was destroyed. Whose was it?

Lech

05-07-2005 08:06:44

The Hapan war fleet

Nekura Manji

05-07-2005 10:49:35

Point Lech!

Next question...

6.) What is the name of the creature used to assault space ships?

Lech

05-07-2005 12:11:31

dovin basals?

Shinichi Endymiron K

05-07-2005 13:04:36

Dovin Bassals don't assault anything. They are used as shields, and as a propulsion device.
The weapon is the Grutchin which tears through the hull of a ship and kills its crew.

Lech

05-07-2005 13:59:08

Bad guess :P

Shinichi Endymiron K

05-07-2005 14:59:58

:)

silverRaven

05-07-2005 17:03:48

Thar's rigtht its gruntchins.

Or is it those plasma guns?

Shinichi Endymiron K

05-07-2005 18:28:13

I'm guessing because he said assault and not attack that it's the Grutchins. That and they never did name the volcano gun thingies.

Nekura Manji

07-07-2005 03:27:31

Point Tharivol.

Next question...

7.) What did Yuuzhan Vong ships resemble?

Lech

07-07-2005 08:52:15

Well I know that the Koros-Strohna World Ship resembles the Galaxy, so I'm gonna say they resemble the Galaxy.

Shinichi Endymiron K

07-07-2005 10:17:33

World ships look like miniature galaxies, but the Kor Chokk Grand Cruiser resembles some sort of massive war tower.

I'm guessing he wants just normal Yuuzhan Vong ships, not big grand-ass cruisers ^_^ So what do the normal ships look like?

Shinichi Endymiron K

07-07-2005 16:59:41

Well Tsik-Seru and Tsik-Vai Fighters look like Manta Rays.

Umm, coralskippers look like rocks. The worldships and grand warships are bigger rocks with long porus arms.

I'm thinking 3 points need awarded here because of the ambiguity of the question.

Nekura Manji

08-07-2005 12:03:39

Blame Xhed for the ambiguity of the question- remember, I didn't write them.

Asteroids was the answer I was looking for... Raven got the closest, so I'm hereby awarding him the point. Because he'll moan if I don't. :P

So... Point Raven!

Next question...

8.) What is the substance that is put into slaves to keep them under control?

Spears

Around the Shadow Academy we like to call it Powdered Jelly Donuts.


Nothing beats fresh donuts to keep the slaves in line.

Coral Seeds

silverRaven

08-07-2005 21:11:24

Coomb Spores?

Or Yorik Coral?

Think of the word that describes those things Mandalorians stick in themselves and you've got it.

Shinichi Endymiron K

09-07-2005 10:46:29

Microbes?

silverRaven

09-07-2005 16:45:02

oh, its implants. duh.

Shinichi Endymiron K

09-07-2005 23:17:44

Implants aren't a substance; they're a thing. In this case the Coral Seeds are the substance of the implant, and obviously if they're "put into" someone they're an implant.

Substance: the stuff of which an object consists.
Implant: an organ, tissue, or device surgically inserted and left in the body.

silverRaven

09-07-2005 23:24:43

I think we should both just get a point.

Nekura Manji

10-07-2005 04:52:45

Sure, why not.

Point Tharivol and Raven!

Next question...

9.) What piece of "technology" is used to fly a Yuuzhan Vong ship?

Macron Sadow

Happy Juice

silverRaven

Dovin Basal's propel the ship, as well as provide sheilds and manuvering.

Shinichi Endymiron K

10-07-2005 14:12:30

Didn't I say that earlier in this thread?

Nekura Manji

11-07-2005 12:27:39

As I recall, you mentioned Dovin Basals as creatures- I'm looking for a specific piece of technology. Something the pilot uses to control/fly the ship.

silverRaven

11-07-2005 17:12:41

umm, a masquerer?

Shinichi Endymiron K

11-07-2005 20:10:05

It's a cognition hood

silverRaven

11-07-2005 20:28:57

Yeah what Thar said.

Xhedias

12-07-2005 00:00:21

Dont blame me, they do look like asteroids, go read Dark Tide over again :P

Nekura Manji

12-07-2005 16:30:31

Point Thar!

Next question...

10.) What bounty hunter comes back from the "dead"?

Kat Pridemore

12-07-2005 18:51:25

Boba Fett

silverRaven

14-07-2005 00:39:45

Hmm. This sucks. I havent read that far yet. *Doubles Reading speed*

Nekura Manji

14-07-2005 03:13:30

Point Kat!

So, without more ado, the final scores for this round are as follows:

Tharivol: 6--> Winner!
Lech: 2
Raven: 3
Kat 1:


Which makes Tharivol the winner! Congrats, dude. The LSS will be in your inbox as soon as Khan gets round to it (as well yours, Xhed) and the next round of questions will begin some time in the future when I can think of some. Which might be a while. X-)

Lech

How bout you make a competition within a competition?

You could make a competition for us to make up questions for the Quaestor's Questions. When you choose which questions you like best, you use them in this forum while the person who won has to sit out of the Quaestor's Questions comp.

Does that make sense? If not, I'll try to explain it better.

Nekura Manji

14-07-2005 08:45:34

That does make sense... sweet idea, Lech. Right, you heard the man- everyone wrack your brains and come up with questions for lazy Manji :P

Shinichi Endymiron K

14-07-2005 17:54:24

Sweet Deal

Lech

25-10-2005 14:23:12

Why don't we crank this old topic back up, Manji?

Nekura Manji

25-10-2005 15:45:34

Sure- have you got questions for me? =D

Lucius

25-10-2005 19:51:43

i'll send by e-mail I guess :P

Heres a question,

How much wood would a wood chuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

I have pondered on this enigma far too long!

Malisane

30-10-2005 05:50:40

There's a really classic reply to that question from one of the Monkey Island games and for the life of me I can't remember what it is.

Nekura Manji

31-10-2005 05:17:28

Lucy- go for it. ^_^
