Velkom, comrades!

I am pleased to announce the launch of our very own RPGfan Community Quiz (Quiz Show)! Let me drop some deets on you.


What?: This is an RPG trivia competition held by moi with our very own forum members as participants. How well do you really know your favorite RPG, can you prove it? If you can, there is a prize in it for you!

When?: June 1st 2013 at 21:00 BST. To save you the timezone & daylights savings time headache I had to go through to understand when that is, here is a handy dandy Countdown Clock! I will also be sending out reminders on the day of the quiz for those of you who show interest!

The quiz will be held bi-monthly. That's twice a month.

Where?: In an IRC Chatroom! No, wait, come back! It's easier than it looks and I'll be giving out easy to understand instructions for first time users. For most it will be a case of going to The Mibbit Website, hitting the "Sign Up Free" button, creating an account and joining the channel #RPGfanCommunityQuiz!

                                                            

For more experienced IRC users who have clients: Server: irc.mibbit.net Port: 6667 Channel: #RPGfanCommunityQuiz

How?: The rules of the game are as follows:

Participation:
1.) You must have at least 30 posts on the forum. It's not a hard target to meet!
2.) You must use the same Nickname/Username you use on the forums. It's just easier on everyone if we know instantly who is who.

Game Information:
1.) Each quiz will center around one game or franchise. A single game in a franchise will be the most common, a quiz about an entire franchise will generally be reserved for simpler or episodic games.
2.) The topic of each quiz will be determined by you guys. Boast about RPGs you are confident about in this thread and if it is popular enough, that will be our subject. In the case of a split, I will decide.
3.) There will be 10 questions in total.
3a.) Questions 1-3 are Easy questions. They are worth 1 point each.
3b.) Questions 4-7 are Medium questions. They are worth 2 points max each.
3c.) Questions 8-10 will be Hard questions. They will be worth 3 points max each.
3d.) There will be ONE Picture and ONE Music round. The Picture round will involve looking at a picture and answering a question about said picture. For the Music round I will host a 30 second audio sample on a nondescript Youtube channel and ask a question relating to the music in question. These rounds yeild points equal to the level of difficulty they are in. eg. If the Picture round is "Question 4" it will be worth 2 points max.
4. The person with the most points is declared the winner! In the case of a tie, there will be a tie-breaker question. This will be first-to-answer. If no one answers within the time limit, I will ask another question. Tie-breakers begin on Hard and gradually lower to Easy.

Da Rules:
1.) All answers must be sent to me privately. If you say the answer in the main chat for everyone to see, you will get a 3 point penalty. If you repeatedly do it, I will kick you from the room. The only exception to this is a tie-breaker, where your answer must be said in the main chat.
2.)There is a 45 second time limit to all questions. This is to discourage Googling the answer. The questions themselves will be worded so that an answer isn't easily obtained by copy/paste, but you either know it or you don't. 45 seconds is still plenty of time to have a think and then type an answer.
3.) I am not going to be harsh on spelling/grammar. If you spell it wrongly but it is easy to see what you were trying to say, I will give you full points. The exceptions to this is if you type another POSSIBLE answer. For example if the question is "Who is the pilot of The Invincible before Kuja and the heroes acquire it in Final Fantasy 9?" and you answer Garnet, but meant Garland, I can't give you points because Garnet is the name of a character within the Final Fantasy 9 universe.

Here is the information for the next quiz:

Next Quiz:
Date: 3rd October 2014

Subject: Persona 3: FES (Playstation 2)


Prize: Steam game worth up to $20

I'll be happy to participate. Is there an official RSVP thing, or is it just whoever bothers to show up?

Your comment here is your RSVP. :)

I'll send everyone who comments here saying that they will be attending a private message the day of the quiz just with general reminders and tips.

Also, thanks for the support. It's scary putting yourself out there like this, and I've never had much of a constitution for public failure.

I like this idea.  But I'm a bit too rusty on that game to actually feel like I could participate. This time.  :)

That is fair enough. :)

It won't be University Challenge so people don't need to worry too much. I'm fully aware some people might not have played the game in quite a few years and besides the hard questions, you could probably recall them from distant memory.

Sure, I'll do this.  I've won a few game trivia contests in my day.

I assume the server is mibbit's server and not lunarnet.org? (Unless you guys moved from Lunarnet and I just didn't realize it).

The Community Quiz is on the mibbit server (irc.mibbit.net), the Unofficial RPGfan Chatroom is still on lunarnet.org however!

If you have a IRC client installed, the link I put on this page should bring you right there: http://jsbin.com/epiviv/1

So why aren't we just doing this on lunarnet?  It seems strange to move to a different server when RPGFan already has a presence there
