Very good guess rwhen, but alas, it's not the most excellent NeverWinter Nights. And I didn't know that RP had moved around . . . :shock: :)

Further hint: The forum-hopping was done by the Mods as part of the RP storyline. ;)

Yeah, it was moved from The Pony to Scripts, back to the Pony and then to the Green Dragon.

I do NOT have a clue which RP was moved purposefully though.

I will do some thinking on it.

The onlyt thread I can remember being passed from forum to forum was
Um oh think....can't remember its title but it was something to do with how great someone was. I don't think it was a rp though. :(

Scratches head. Have to give this some more thought. :)

HEY!!! I resemble that remark . . . at least according to my hubby. But he's a man, so what does that tell ya? =:)

Okay, since no one seems to remember this the answer is . . .

The TORC Conspiracy and it ended its journey (a bit prematurely as a matter of fact) in The Green Dragon Inn forum.

Next!!!

See if you can work this one out :)

This person registered as an animal of a particular colour and 5 weeks later registered as the same animal but used a different colour with it.

Can you name the 2 Id's?

Hope that makes sense :)

Is this person a very old ID? Like before me in Aug 2001? Or were they still posting when I came on?

Lets me know if I just need to use my memory or if I need to do some dumpster diving..

and I think you were clear enough.

Example: Black Bear then changed to White Bear...sort of thing.

Color and animal.

Both were posting before you joined. Both were posting after you joined too. Yes, like the white bear, black bear example. The poster brought in the second Id for rp only at the time but after 2 years completely dropped the first and posted in general with the second before finally leaving torc in june 2009. :)

Hey Sandra, I remember The Red Weasel posting a bunch on Manwe rather than RP...but something also brings to mind a black weasel name as well.

So that is going to be my first guess off the top of my head.

That is him :o

The 'black weasel' came first. I don't think he posted in great quantity under either Id but I would imagine that he would have been at home in Manwe too :)

Sandra, I haven't a clue what to ask here. I have been beating my brain trying to come up with something...it will come.

I think I will let it go and then see what surfaces, but I promise not to let the thread die out.

:D


Okay I came up with something.

There was a thread in A & G for about a year or so that dealt with an interesting problem and a sport in the title. What was the name of the Guild and who started the thread?

Has this something to do with a cocktail shaker and a soulful singer??

The drinking guild (with a rugby problem)
Winged_Balrog

I've just been reading through that thread. :o
And Khamul'sshadow, whom you said in the fallen but not forgotten you hadn't heard of before, is there and posting.
Lol, the gentleman. Remember him? He was telling me how good London was :rofl:

Of course you got it right and indeed that was a long time ago. I didn't remember that name Khamul'sshadow and I still don't even with you reminding me. Lots of songs sung there that is for sure. Wingy hasn't been around in AGES.

TheGentleman!! I was trying to think of a trivia question that had to do with him, but couldn't come up with anything, I sure do remember him well though. Again, someone who hasn't been here in forever.

LOL. Yes Sandra, because you need a good education on London:P:P:P :D

Okay, hit me with your best shot then.

Ok, this poster brought in the second Id for a short period so that another poster could get his 1000 post mark first. That is all it was used for. As far as I can remember both of this guys Id's were mostly found in the bird and baby and all posts had humour. :)

I can't imagine Isaiah doing that for any one, though his posts were always pretty humorous and he did post in Talk.

Is the poster still active today?

This poster was last seen at torc in 2009. Strangely, I have looked at a few well known posters recently and many departed here in that year.

You are right, Isaiah was in a race to beat HFB to 10,000 and wouldn't have relented.

Think food!

When you say "food" do you refer to their TORC ID? Or just that they liked or talked about food a bit?

Crispy comes to mind, but he has posted in this year. Also Wingy comes to mind, but I don't think he has posted in quite a long while.

Still my first guess will be Winged_Bolrog.

It's not winged-balrog. :(

The food is part of this person's Id. This Id last posted in 2002.

'I can't bare the taste whether it be hard or soft'

Ok, this food is normally a yellowish colour, sometimes a sort of orange and can be green if its gone bad :D

Initially catching up on this last trivia, I thought Klonkku was the answer. Early on, his identify was tied to Smeagol in some fashion and he was always talking about fishhhhhh....

Anyone have the corn or squash in their name??? ;)

I went as far as 100 pages in the memberlist looking for someone with cheese, melon, butter in their name...and had to stop when my eyeballs started moving involuntarily. :P

So another hint I do think. Did this person join before I did in September 2001?

Also I am a bit confused...two posts ago you said their last post was in 2009 and then in the last one I think I read you said their last post was in 2002? Well precioussssss??? I probably misunderstood on reading them.

You might have meant that the poster posted up until 2009, but the alt ID only to 2002? *confused* Oh and I don't EVEN have a clue. It is probably someone I posted with and I just don't remember. :D

Sandra???

Hi Dunthy, there is no corn in his name but I do believe he had one on his right big toe :lol:

Rwhen, you can slap my hand for that confusion. The poster did post until 2009 but it was under his first Id. His second Id did join before you and continued until 2002.

I thought this was going to be so easy. :shock:

One of you has mentioned the food :thumbsup:

Well I guess that it has to be cheese, because that is hard or soft, yellowish/orange and will go green in time.

But I don't recall anyone with the name of "cheese" as a regular poster or alternate ID.

I also went through all the names from the beginning of TORC to my joining and only could find names with cheese that had 2-10 posts.

But just because I will say Cheese Whiz.
