[Boh] The Royal Quiz - Results are in!

Day 1,975, 15:25 by Bohemond4

Dear readers and friends

I have terrible news, the Royal Quiz, a sanctuary of the insane, a garden of the good, the place of peace has been usurped this month.

The winner has completed his evil plans with regards to our quiz. But first, I shall announce the third and second places. The quiz was great fun with around 18 people attending, including first timers. Of course, we had the usual argument about the Quiz being rigged, but, they are, of course wrong!



In third place, we have the Mighty Worms made up of UKRPers inlcuding: Sir Rex Fleddington, Cottonpicken, LongShotzZ, Robalbino and Apronchef. With a respectable 35 points they sidled into the third slot relying on their Dr Who knowledge to support them.

The second place award goes to Guts and Glory! A team made up of New Eralites and UKPPers. Led by Sambo112 this included: BigAnt, Commander Dapper and NT Games. They came in with 37 points which is a solid score.

Finally, the winner of this months quiz is non other than the diabolical Talon Karrde whose thirst for power has reached into the heart of The Royal Quiz itself! With 46 points and excellent knowledge across the board, he comes in with victory!

Well done to all contestants and we shall run this again next month.
