    Lol Silvery - actually I don't have an avatar :p. But that would be very tricky making a question about myself. No it isn't.

    @ Mon - Nope, not Shell either, although I did recently talk to her on FB! I guess she and I share some things in common.

    Ok here is a hint that will make it pretty easy so we can get on with this game.
    It is a person who is on my friends list.

    Going down your list, it appears that the most likely suspect is revmaf, but I have no recollection of the cinnamon bread comments.

    Yah it was Rev. I guess I remember strange details about people. I remember her talking about baking and sending cinnamon bread loaves to her friends and family on more than one Christmas. :) She was an awesome BOM member BTW.

    OK dmc - looks like it's your turn again.

    At the risk of causing a topic derailment, has anyone heard from revmaf? She seems to have vanished completely.

    OK - If Tal is Sauron for the sake of this question, then the nine ringwraiths would be those, including me, with the distinguished member title.

    Name them all.

    [Caveat - I think there are only nine. I know that there are at least nine. If there are more than nine, pretend that there are nine and name nine. :p Also, one of the nine has, get this, less than 100 posts even now - so he can be the Witch King of Angmar, bonus points for naming him.]

    No, it wasn't Ex. I know it was before my time even, but I am going to hazard a guess at Sylvus Moonbow, based on what I remember from when I first found the site (which was before I signed up). There was some kind of full blown spat with Tal that was really obnoxious.

    That's a pretty tough question though, BTA.

    If I'm right, someone else can have it as I am fresh out of lore at the moment.

    Ooh, ooh, I'll go then

    Um, but I can't think of a good question.

    So, why not go back to the one that was half posed before: name at least four BoM members from New Zealand.

    [​IMG] Deathmage, Aikanaro, Rotku and Harbourboy.

    Deathmage and Aik used to debate if everyone else in the chatroom were figments of their imagination as they were the only ones around at certain times of day. This meant when DM was in England he still kept exclaiming "I can't believe you're actually real!" :lol:

    If I'm right I'm actually supposed to be packing for a trip, so it would be open to the floor again :p

    Might be wrong but I thought Aik was from Oz rather than NZ?

    Aikanaro wasn't from NZ as far as I was aware. I'm sure there are others but there's one who is probably the fourth highest poster from NZ.

    I just stumbled upon a post by Abomination, who appeared to be from Auckland, NZ and has >2k posts.

    If you mean him, my answer would be:

    Harbourboy (around for about a decade and top 3 poster of the BoM. Not a real Newb if you ask me! :lol: ;))
    Rotku
    Deathmage
    Abomination

    As far as I am aware, the top five posters from New Zealand are:

    Harbourboy 13,049
    Rotku 3,071
    Abomination 2,375
    Deathmage 1,828
    Tassadar 1,478

    So all yours, Master of Nuhn.

    Mmmmh... Not sure what to ask. I got several titles in my head. Some are quite tough, I guess. Let me choose the easiest of them all. And I'll give you some additional info as well. As a hint of some sort.

    A personal, real life friend told me about SP/BoM. His title was: Next elven archer gets me axe in his belly!
    He would have loved to add "pansy" to elven archer, but there wasn't enough space.

    Who is/was he?

    Edit: Btw, I want his name correctly spelled. So be careful with your R's.
