Hope you've had/have a great time, Judy :) - It sure must feel great to be at home again after quite a while and meet some old friends! - Oh, and thanks for the flowers!

The results of my weekend work can be now be viewed when you enter Santhworld and type in GOTO TRIVIA. You'll end up in the new Trivia module that at the moment features just one quiz with 5 questions. It is planned to add more later, also to add e.g. different ones with varying difficulty levels per section. Well, just have a look. Some more additional questions at the first quiz would be cool :)

Try to make that quiz, and see what graphics you get for a "Yes" and a "No" for example. At the end you get an evaluation with a "Trivia Rank". If we have more questions and more suggestions we could add further ranks here with humorous explanations.

BTW: The new system allows also to make other things that aren't directly quizzes but use a point system. For example there could be a test "What Santharian race am I?" (I guess you know these things), then you get, say 3 answers, and if you choose A you get 3 points, B means 2 points and C 1. Once the questions are over we can evaluate the score, just like in a regular quiz. So you see, there are a bunch of options now available with this new addition.

Let me know what you think!  cool

Woohoo!

I scored 4 out of 5 on the test.  Fun, and good questions too, nothing too easy.
So if we want to submit future test ideas, should we PM you, Art, so that people can't get the answers from this forum?  What do you suggest for that?

4/5? Not that bad, Alysse... If you aren't a pro you might have difficulties with some questions, but that makes it fun... :D

To keep up the fun questions and answers ideally shouldn't be discussed here first, indeed. So yes, send them to me directly I'd suggest :)

Woot! 5/5!

Although i had to think a long time on the two-tails question *wipes sweat*


edit-> I'm compiling a herbarium quiz.. ge, its a lot of work to come up with good answers for every option!

Oh, and Art, i assume i can write my own "x/x" messages for the eventual outcome as well?

Congrats on a perfect score, Mira :) And: Woo-hooo, a Herbarium quiz is coming! And yes, Mira, you can be fully creative on what you write in your answer texts or in your Santharian ranks. :D

BTW: Alysse already made a Northern Sarvonia quiz. I have 5 questions plus answers already, so I'll see to put them up as soon as I can... We can still add more over time, around 10 questions should be perfect. - BTW, Alysse: You can also write your own Santharian ranks if you want. thumbup - Thanks for the great quiz!

Only problem I have at the moment is - as has been mentioned - that I don't have a picture for general OK answers where the solution isn't illustrated. If someone knows what to put there, let me know!

No idea.. right now i'm just picking target entries based on whether they are illustrated or not, to avoid the problem..

Okeydokey, a little update here Alysse's quiz is halfway prepared by now - 4 out of 8 questions are done completely, it will contain 3 questions pictures and once you start a Places quiz you get a Places pic as well. Once you enter such a category you now get a short list of all the possible quizzes for that category (one so far in Bestiary and one in Places), and from that you can then choose. Listed there is also the author of the quiz, the amount of questions and the difficulty level. And the way it is not set up we're ready for more... :D

Plus I've now chosen a general picture for a correct answer - Eratin's "Magical Bag" pic shows an elven lady enjoying spring, so I thought that's perfectly fine for a "Yippier, correct answer!" image... Plus I have dug up as well a second "Thinking..." pic, Quellion's "Tree Whispers" elf, which will be displayed at Alysse's quiz instead of the elf. So we now have a nice variety of pics, and of course a bunch of interesting questions... Stay tuned, the Northern Sarvonian quiz is definitely ready at the next update, also with own Northern Sarvonian ranking texts which Alysse provided as well!  thumbup

Well, we need test persons that get e.g. 1 out of 5 points so that we can see if the Peasant joke I've put in there at the evaluation comes across. So I'm sure if you fail it's for a good cause, Altario...  evil

But with 2 points you still go to be a Peasant, so thanks for checking that possibility of the outcome as well! :)

I can safely confirm that your Peasant joke works.  Not only that, but posing as a complete ignoramus of Santharian beasts, I am probably in danger of being trompled by a... well, never mind, won't spoil that for anyone else...  :)   Bravo!

Yes, I was a peasant... actually, it took three times before I got a perfect score... I'm glad the answers arent given.. keeping those questions viable once the pool gets bigger, and people want to take the test over again

Art, can the quizzes be placed inside the Lorehold madules once they are completed? They could function as "locks", giving certain hidden keywords upon completing a quiz to a certain degree which enables certain conversations, triggers, or rewards in the game.

Yes, sure, Mira... It's the same thing as with the lever thingy I explained above:

Someone might ask the player e.g. to read about something in the Lorehold, and if the player feels proficient he should return. Then the character asks e.g. 3 questions and if ok, the player can proceed. These 3 questions could eventually be choosen from a question pool, e.g. the character has 10 questions available, but only asks 3. If the player talks wants to take that "quiz" he might always get different answers. - So yup, you can be pretty creative on how to use this system :)

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
