Clarification for Question 10:

"Troublesome times in the family and country - A nomadic power had recently invaded nearby regions"

...means that a foreign nomadic power had recently invaded nearby regions and caused trouble to the empire/kingdom of the ruling family.

The next update will probably be around 3 pm (in two hours).

Scores have been updated again. Sorry for the delay. I was all over the place today....

On Question 14, again "Emperor" has to be taken literally. That is, the line of rulers were known as Emperors historically and not merely as kings.

When I saw the first three questions, I said myself: " Wow, they made the total quiz much easier than before" but as I go through, well it has been ...Finally I have personally given error in my brain, especially after questions of Decebal, Dawn and especially Poirot, after that last question, I had gone offline, with a blue screen asking to abort,retry, ignore or fail

An alternate answer has been accepted for Question 16. This will boost many of your points.

Yes, kudos to Decebal for his clean sweep. Same to Dawn, if Q14 will advance to the second round. 

BoudiccasWrath, sorry that I didn't see your answer earlier for the "heavenly palance" question.

I think I have to stick with the 4 hour intervals, unless you can convince me to accept another alternate answer.

Also, I am not sure if I can guarentee many updates tomorrow. I'll be working on an extremely tight schedule tomorrow morning, so only a few more guesses left! this I do apologize for, but hopefullly, the fact that we had 48 hours can give me some leeway.

Dawn, your answer does not fit one of the criteria (named city after himself).

Dawn, you can force a tie if you answer question 14 correctly either in the remaining round 1 or in round two

...unless someone else gets it in round one and you don't - but it looks like the question will advance to round 2.

Buff, question 14 seems extremely difficult. Nobody has replied it so far. How many barbarians were descendants of emperors, named cities after themselves and those cities became capitals of states larger than their own. I really can't think of any answer. 

NO GOD, NO MASTER!

Well, there was one guy, a Hungarian adventurer, who became emperor of an african nation. So I guess anything's possible. (needless to say, he was on the TQ about 3 years ago)

Final guesses for round 1. There will be no more score updates between now and the end of round 1.

Round 1 ends at 1 pm EST. However, round two will not start until I have computer access, which will be some time around 3-4 pm.

Round two has begun!

Answers to round 1 questions will be posted shortly.

Current scores have been posted. Bonus points have been added, calculated by the following methods:



The Bonus system for round two is a bit complex. But essentially, as it is in our case, if the question is answered, Decebal will receive 2 points. If nobody is able to answer the question correctly, then there will be no bonus (in this case, the question would be deemed by the formula to be "too difficult" for the quiz.)

Great question Decebal!

His surname refers to a warrior fighting with no one by his side.

Does this mean his surname means a warrior fighting with no one by his side, or that his surname alludes to a specific warror in history who fough with no one by his side?
