Werewolf History 101

There will be a pop quiz every... well, every time someone gets a question right, I suppose. The subject - past Tol-In-Gaurhoth games.

(You know, the whole first-person-to-get-it-right-comes-up-with-the-next-question-deal.)

Please turn to page 1.

Question 1.

Who was Ozymandias's daughter?

Anguirel?

And yes, THE Ka is correct. Should have known you'd get that one, Fea. :P

Wait a minute... does this have anything to do with Tolkien? I'm lost.

There was a talking dog or two in the Silmarillion, but somehow I don't think that's what you're discussing.

What, you've been around here long enough to be a "Haunting Spirit", and you haven't yet visited Tol-in-Gaurhoth?

We really must do something about that...

I agree. Also, Cobbler-Seer is correct. Your go, she for whom the stars doth shine.

Why thank you, he whose splendour outshines the sun.


Name three games in which no wolves* were killed.





*including wolves-by-another-name– "Wraiths", "Were-Penguins", "Mutineers" etc.

Good one. Does this include Volo's where the entire pack survived besides two who were taken (more or less) pre-game in trial Days? (I'm guessing not, but I'll ask anyway.)

WW IX: the Saga Owns You and You Know It (modded by Encaitare)
WW XLII: The Meaning of Life Forever (modded by Volo)
WW LII: Star Crossed II: Together for Eternity (modded by Di)


Do I win?


ETA: Going to bed. I'll think of a really good question and will post it sometime tomorrow.

WW: LVIV (wolves Shasta, Lari, Greenie, and technically Kent)
WW: XLIX (wolves Lommy and Phantom)
WW: XLII (wolves Aganzir, Brinniel, Valier, Lommy, Sally)

Edit: Dangit, Sally!

Editx2: HA. The village won Durelin's game. I win!

What? What's Durelin have to do with anything?


(Also, as a note. In Di's game the baddies were lovers, not werewolves. If you won't accept this response I'll happy submit WW X as an alternate, as I believe it works also.)



ETA: Seriously going to bed now. Shasta, hush over in IM land so I can sleep, precious.

I meant Diamond, not Durelin. My bad.

A difficult call, but I'll give it to Sally. (Really, I should have specified that Diamond's Lovers game didn't count, but that's my mistake.)

Fabulous!

Unfortunately I forgot my supercool awesome question so we'll just go with this.


Name three circumstances in which there was no lynch on a given Day. Name the Days and, where applicable, name who the lynchee should have been.

As I was just flicking through the Grimoire down there *points down*, thought I'd just make an academic point....
Nerwen's question was I hope not meant to refer to an exhaustive list. WWIV saw all three wolves survive til the end...

Well, one is obviously the game we just had, but I can't for the life of me find a second one. Drat it all.
