    You got the final score wrong. Kelly got the last question right and snagged a tie with Maligorn for 5th.
    I'm Lucidian. If I don't get pedantic every so often, I might explode.

    Oops. I probably hit quizstatus for final scores in between the Lotin Snapfuse and Lotin answers and missed Kelly's points.

    That happens to all of us. Both me and Ushaara managed to botcher questions due to being nervous.
    Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.

    So, question for the people that got them right, what are the sources for the Giving Tree and Anas'im'aeklas questions? I don't think I've ever heard of either of those before the quiz.
    Any sufficiently advanced pun is indistinguishable from comedy.

    The Giving Tree was the climax of the Era of the Wounded Sky story arc. It played a part in the Icewynd/Zenos seal weakening of what, 2012? So event posts from around then should have it.

    The Anas'im'aeklas is very recent, and are the opposing group to the lucidian climatologists in the Plaxios Lowlands. Event news posts just before the round-up of the Dumaliel/Grimbach story arc have the details.

    I see a few I would have really raked my brain over. Thanks for posting!

    First, thank you for posting.

    Second, I wish we had an accompanying list of all the answers. Some were pretty funny!
  • KiradaweaKiradawea Member Posts: 1,750 Transcendent
    Events 239 for the Giving Tree.

    Events 295 and 296 for the Anas'im'aeklas (AKA: Nature's Renewal).
