    There have been questions using the strip titles from time to time. While they may be technically illegal, I think no one was bothered because they were usually answered quickly.

    BTW, searching for the words also often works if you use the transcription thread or the wiki. I personally don't because it seems like cheating to me.

    Yes, I agree that searching the transcriptions and wiki is cheating, or at the very least ruins the game and the point of the game.

    Funny, that's kind of how I feel about questions that are weak enough that they need to include exact phrases that can be found in the transcripts to be asked (Also, TheWombatOfDoom deserves more credit for keeping the Transcription of the Stick thread running)

    I believe I've asked questions using the title of the strip or the number of the strip as part of the answer before, but I now see the error of my old ways...

    Fair enough.

    The "job" was to kill someone.

    I don't think there's a big problem with using the strip number, because the strip number is usually readable right in the strip image. But of course you shouldn't use the strip number in a silly way where you just want to exclude a particular possible answer.

    That's why I usually ask questions about visuals, instead of simply writing the dialogue.

    I agree with this. Also, questions that ask for the exact phrasing are often so vague that technically they have tons of answers, which should disqualify them if you ask me.

    This is a tough one. The Giant depicts heaps of treasure as being made of gold coins and gems only, with the occasional sword, but no jewelry and helmets and gold candelabrum sticking out of it like I see in other depictions (like Réber's at least). Nale's demon summoning pentagram has candles on the floor, with no candlestick holder, and the same is true for Durkon praying for help. #25 has a candle holder, I think it was even featured in this thread recently, but the holder is not gold. Perhaps the candlestick holder we're looking for was not used as a fixture in a building, but as a mobile lighting source carried by a human adventurer in a dark dungeon corridor. But Rich rarely draws dark corridors either, dungeons are just assumed to be lit unless the darkness matters for a joke or plot.

    The strip in question contains Inkyrius.

    Ok, let's go through the notions then. Inkyrius only appears in three places: the ascension of Darth Vaarsuvius, the summons, and that one really good joke about Eugene's family life compared to Vaarsuvius's. The second one wins here: #679 fourth panel has a flashback to Vaarsuvius and Inkyrius, when the latter has prepared the table for dinner with the requested candlestick holder. That's the kind of trivia question I like: it's not easy to search for. OQ.

    #670 tenth panel, the scroll contains the intelligence that O-Chul managed to collect about Xykon, including a list of his spells and magic items. Another nice question, thank you. OQ for now.

    Taking the OQ. Find a page with an unusual panel layout where in addition to the normal four rows of panels, there's an additional narrow row squeezed in with a single strip showing a projectile flying across most of the strip's width.
