    Default Order of the Stick Trivia XX: Naturally

    This is the 20th edition of the Order of the Stick Trivia thread. I think I am supposed to put some sort of joke here, but unfortunately I must have rolled a one on humour.

    Here are the rules:
    Quote Originally Posted by Rules
    1. The first player to answer a question correctly, asks the next one.
    2. If that player doesn't have a question immediately in mind, then state "Open Question" ("OQ") and let someone else ask.
    3. Questions have to have an answer that is demonstrated by at least one, and no more than three, canon online strip. (No bonus material either online or in the books)
    4. No counting questions with more than 3 parts. For example: how many times has Roy said "the".
    5. If the answer given is not the answer expected, but still technically answers the question, allow it. You can rephrase and ask your question again later.
    6. There's a difference between rephrasing—finding a different, more precise way to word the question so it has a smaller number of possible answers—and just simply rewriting to rule out the last answer. Don't do the latter. (If you are unsure, just ask it.)
    7. If an answer is given that in no way is correct, then players can call attention to the fact. At that point, there may be 2 questions occurring at the same time. The 1st question that was incorrectly answered is the valid question. The second question may be answered, but for no prize (aka asking the next question).
    8. If your response is ninja'd, that is if someone beats you with the correct answer, please edit your post stating, "ninja'd, please answer above question".
    9. After 24 hours without an answer, please provide a hint. After an additional 24 hours pass, please provide the answer and take pride that you have stumped us all. If you won't be around to provide a hint (hiking Mt. Everest, other activity without internet, rot-13 is a good way to hide your hint so you can post it in advance.)
    10. Recognize that this is a game. It is supposed to be quick and fun. If a question seems to go beyond the rules, assume that the author is not familiar with the rules, and point them out. If the author affirms that the question is allowable within the rules, then continue with the game. If the question turns out to be not allowable, it becomes an open question. Groan and move on.
    11. Questions along the lines of "when was the first time X happened/was mentioned" are not allowed because to prove that they never happened before, one would have to link to every strip before it, which is unreasonable and would break the no-more-than-three-strips rule. They are permitted if the answer is in the first three strips, however.




    Last Question of the previous thread was:

    Hint (a bit early, so wait an hour before you open this box).

    Belkar sets a tent on fire with a torch in the bandit camp, and sets Miko on fire with a matchstick. What does Belkar set on fire that causes more damage to the Order than those?

    Is that really a torch, though? It looks more to me like a lighting stick or a punk.

    If correct, let's go with:

    Find a line standing on a pillow.

    It's a subconscious thing.

    I thought it was a torch. Sorry if this was confusing. Maybe in retrospect, I shouldn't have asked about the torch. Instead I could have pointed out that in #46 seventh panel, Haley tells Roy to "grow a Sense Motive", and asked for a proof that Roy did. Oh well.

    Quote Originally Posted by Ruck View Post

    Hmm, I think that was one of those D&D jokes like “Roy's been staggered! Or possibly stunned! Maybe dazed? Dazzled?” or ghouls vs ghasts or demon vs devil.

    Belkar in #910 third panel, where Roy points out that Greg made the same joke in #908 tenth panel? No, I don't think that was what you were thinking of. I'll keep searching.

    Arguably, Ian Starshine. Kind of a dated reference, so its much too late for that.

    Also the goblin that Xykon was going to give a college recommendation to.

    I have my doubts, but between me and jonas we've found several instances which arguably work? I just want to get this question in, and there's a compelling case for the first of my answers and for jonas's.

    Find me someone dead while two people are visibly watching...
    The dead person hasn't fallen down...
    And their entire body is showing, but only one eye.

    Neither of the answers really fits...
    Belkar was late for a joke, not a reference. In Ian's case, it's the reference itself that is late, not a someone. The goblin wasn't late, he just screwed up...

    The individual in question is definitely too young to understand said reference

    Oh! So someone is too young to understand a reference. Now I know what you mean. The giant yellow sockpuppet thing in the gladiator arena. I don't understand that reference either. Now if only I could recall where it is in the Blood book, that would be great. … Oh, I see. Squire already linked to it.

    Oh, the centipede video game! Yes, that's a better answer. Although that one has modern adaptations, so it's not too dated for me, but I can understand that the young policeman isn't familiar with it.

    To be honest, I'm just shooting in the dark. I seem to remember that there's a very specific character that explicitly says "Am I too late for a reference?", but for the love of the Dark One I cannot remember who or when!

    It's even better. It's the best answer, as it is indeed the intended one.

    So, question goes to Cicciograna

    Um. Isn't the whole thing about a colosseum where gladiators fight, also: bread! circuses! and Tarquin (who is named of a Roman king) gives thumb up a big reference to ancient Rome? Either that, or it's something to do with how Yokyok is a reference to Princess Bride.

    Nope, it's an explicitly named Italian city.

    Huh, I probably have a vampire in my brain right now, it's probably the first time I realize the connection between Tarquin, the Coliseum and all the roman imagery. I feel so dumb now.

    I hope you're not angry if I take the OQ again

    Fin me two stick figures in the same panel which have a letter instead of their facial attributes. No eyes, no mouth, just a letter.

    That one's easy. #145 sixth panel, Vaarsuvius explains about random encounters on a blackboard, the stick figures are the illustrations on the blackboard. OQ.

    That's interesting. I remember the MitD complaining about tickling, but we don't know if the MitD is a human, and he probably isn't.
