CHALLENGE LISTING
Keyword Challenge #2
If any player posts a valid post with the secret Keyword in it, he or she will win a free item! The word is a potentially everyday word. (So, it's not 'hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia'.) Word lists do not count. The word must be found in a sentence inside a valid post. This has a good history of promoting activity, so let's see some interesting stories! (Update: remember that the post does not have to be about the game. Also, any tense of the word will work as well [*-s, *-ing, *-ed, *-like, etc. will all do.) This Challenge lasts until the end of the game.

POINTS AND INVENTORIES..........Updated Sunday, 23:34 EDT.
Allikat73126 = 13
braingle01 = 13 (FIRED)
faheem1 = 9
huckingfoes = 3
Kaipper = 13
max318 = 20
TallGuy = 22
TheLegend = 3 | Employment Insurance, Clawshot

THE BOSS = 31 FP (asteroidbelt = 2, checkndone = 3, divarenee = 3, Flutterdash = 3, Thekid4 = 2, Coolnine9 = 7, dcf525 = 2, kitty-cat = 0, themasterbrain = 1, hermygranger123 = 5, Jayo = 3, scrub88 = 0, braingle01 = 0)

In the previous round, the Boss earned 11 - n, where n is the number of valid posts a fired player made.
In this round, the Boss will earn 13 - n.

Ugh, I really thought alikat was it. She matched the clues! Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think we finally cleared someone then?

I'm at a loss, only thing I can think of for bokoblin is "The legend of zelda" which may point to TheLegend. But I have no idea how he matches the other 2 clues.

Edit: Actually, if braingle did indeed vote for allikat and was fired, then that would mean allikat would have to be cleared (assuming he voted as stated)

So we've either cleared allikat or braingle was the rat who forgot to hack the network (seems doubtful since he was on to state a vote). I'm really confused. I'm going to vote for Legend.

we have 2 clears tallguy I like may foes explanation so i am voting for huckingfoes. Braingle might have been the Rat and the boss fired her. So I think we only have kaiper as a clear.
If we only have 2 rounds I will suggest that you get huckingfoes and allikat again. but legend is a good canadiate.
I will vote legend
i ask for the Mod to fire me. I have an urgent trip this week and I am fairly sure I will not be active. Please Mod fire.
Good luck fellow employees.

Last round I bought a divination card to reveal a clue about the boss, even though we had 2 already, If I were you, I would try and solve all the 3 clues, instead of voting randomly.

TallGuy, could you prove yourself innocent, and buy another clue for us ?

True enough, but jarmihi did say the boss and the rat are also able to buy items from the bazaar. It would definitely be a good ploy to lead suspicion away. If anything, you will just get cleared this round Legend.

I'll vote legend as well

Hah! I figured it out! max318 is the boss!
His interests says : Zelda, Nintedo, Video games, school, A hat in time.
A hat in time (which is his avi) is a game, and as kickstarter.com describe it :
A Hat in Time is a 3D collect-a-thon platformer in the spirit of the beloved Nintendo and Rare games from the Nintendo 64 era. Think Banjo-Kazooie, The Legend of Zelda and Super Mario 64 all in one!

Clue#1 Koopa Troopa : Super Mario
Clue#2 Vicious : Banjo-Kazooie Chapter 16 The Vicious oil bath
Clue#3 Bokoblin : Legend of Zelda

Tada!

Could you explain the Vicious connection to Banjo Kazooie Legend? I'm trying to google it

Edit: I think you just added the info. That makes sense to me! I knew that koopa troopa and bokoblin were all nintendo references, I was trying hard to figure out how vicious was related to nintendo. Nice work Legend! I'm changing to max

TallGuy, there are only two Knowledge Essences remaining...would you like to spend both of them on one clue?

max318: I don't think I've ever received such a request.... I'm just going to maintain the rules, and if it turns out that you fail to post next round I will then ModFire you.

I thought I would never make that request either. Okay here is hoping I stay active.
Good you finally know what my profile pic is. Well who cares now that kickstarter is over and advertising failed. But it got alot of grant kirkhope tunes. like 7
What don't you get. I hate the walking dead franchise. Ari marmells books are the best and I would never leave this time peroid. Have we just thrown out the memo's as a whole
EDIT: Wow Sorry about that rant there. I have been through alot this saturday. Can't stop hearing I am sorry for your loss. Sometimes people like to move on and forget about things.
Logical argument: Let's pretend what he boss said was true 2 rounds left. 7 people that is 5 people in 2 rounds. I think braingle was the rat got fired to try and clear allikat therefore she could only fire 1 person. We are all good loyal subjects to the boss's thinking aren't we? Still nobody to connect the clues AND the memo's(AND not or) to but her still voting allikat.
Legend 1 tiny flaw in your clue solving. Just 1. BOKBOKINS DIDN'T EXIST UNTIL WIND WAKER shh. Look up your zelda stuff.
Metagame time> The mod is excellent and wouldn't do that because that clue would be false because like I said early bokbolins didnt exist then
And Legend what do you think I would do if i was the boos. I would be corned I ask for you the employees to fire me. I would openly state I am the boss because I really would like the game to end in a non-inactive way. The rating of the game would go down and i would be to blame
Edit ahead of time: Nice to know jarmihi.

Ratings? Meh. Don't get me wrong, I like knowing that people think my games are awesome, but the little stars only say so much, especially when they include my first games. :shudder:

For all you budding moderators out there: ratings are transient. It could be that you just get indecent people who rate you poorly. It could be that you get really nice people who don't want to hurt your feelings. Take them with a grain of salt. If you are courteous, and you take care of your game, and you strive to make it better every time though serious, objective analysis, then you will be called "good." Except by me. I'll call your style "old-fashioned," because all games used to be like this.

Hmm, well we definitely didn't get a majority this round
Firings should be interested...hopefully they can tell us something

Ah, I didn't even notice that jarmihi. I guess I'll just take 2 of those then instead of 3
