i could do a FF2 one again, but thats because its easy :lol:

but 5 of us need to do rumours so... ill have to think for that one

Night Fury
02-23-2016, 12:38 PM
1 person can do all 5 rumours if they want! They just have to be to 5 separate people, and about 5 different villains! (the character, not the user!)

Galuf
02-23-2016, 12:46 PM
Woah guys. this riddle is different it seems.

i think theres multiple lines. guess we can update here.

Line 2. You fell for the bait

Line 4. by 20

Line 7. in the snow. Hypnotising
Line 8. i am a rare blue

Galuf
02-23-2016, 02:46 PM
As of now the only clues we have are pretty vague. but... who knows, maybe the villans have gotten close? idk.

if i were to take a guess id say Snow, the enemy on FFVII you can fight.
but we only have 3 right now
anyway. ill keep an eye oot for the rest of em.

Karifean
02-23-2016, 02:49 PM
I've thought about if it might be FF VII again, describing the Added Cut materia which is a 'rare blue materia' you find in the 'snow', but the clues are so vague it could be anything else just as well, not to mention we're missing half the riddle at least.

Formalhaut
02-23-2016, 02:54 PM
So, how much of the riddle do we have?

Galuf
02-23-2016, 02:58 PM
So, how much of the riddle do we have?

lines 4 7 and 8.

ive put it in a post above. but maybe i should make it stand out

Formalhaut
02-23-2016, 03:14 PM
I was thinking the enemy 'Snow' as well, from FFVII. She's pretty hypnotising, walks around in the snow, has a complex route to get to her, and has a deep blue colouration.

But honestly? Not enough right now to say for definite.

Jinx
02-23-2016, 03:26 PM
Yeah, was thinking about the flag thing in FFVII to the snow witch.

Karifean
02-23-2016, 04:13 PM
So it seems the FF II forum was already taken care of, who feels like starting some rumors?

Formalhaut
02-23-2016, 04:14 PM
What sort of rumours should we start spreading?

Karifean
02-23-2016, 04:24 PM
Anything you want to, I guess. :jess:

Hey guys. What's up in this thread? Talking about the rumours are we? Well I'll leave you to it.

But just before I go, here's a little rumour that I heard. You're really going to want to bring your A game and try and win that Bonus Prize awarded for the funniest rumour. The winner of it will be sure to get an ULTIMATE advantage ;)

Galuf
02-23-2016, 04:51 PM
With line 2 here, have our thoughts been edited? im still unsure but sticking with snow

Shaibana
02-23-2016, 04:52 PM
alright, alright.. ill spread a rumour.. give me some time to think about it, lol

Karifean
02-23-2016, 04:53 PM
I also thought this might be about Black Waltz #1 in FF IX, but I don't know how the rare blue were to fit into that.

Shauna
02-23-2016, 04:57 PM
I am updating your OP Galuf to keep everything together!

Any rumours post links to them in here too so we can keep track

Galuf
02-23-2016, 04:57 PM
this could be my colourblindness but wasnt there clothes blue?

oops shauna. uh well i tried...

Shauna
02-23-2016, 04:59 PM
Don't worry about it, I just like to do organising things. xD

Shauna
02-23-2016, 05:01 PM
Also remember on the rumours we need to spread them to 5 seperate members. So make sure you flag up who you VM so we don't do the same as those dumb dumb villains who spread two of their rumours to Freya.

Formalhaut

Line 2. You fell for the bait

Line 4. by 20

Line 7. in the snow. Hypnotising
Line 8. i am a rare blue

Line 2: The Snow of FFVII, appears to be a normal human in the field. Talking to her starts the battle.

Line 4: Not a clue.

Line 7: She takes the form of a beautiful woman, and her name is literally Snow.

Line 8: She's sort of blue/purple, so this fits.


Line 2 helps with the Snow (http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Snow_(Final_Fantasy_VII)) hypothesis, definitely. But again, I can't say for certain, just yet.

Shaibana
02-23-2016, 05:04 PM
alright, i claim Spehiroth.. since i 'know' him the best :3 ill post the result later on

Formalhaut
02-23-2016, 05:51 PM

Line 3. 10 of me will make their magic strong
Line 4. by 20

Line 7. in the snow. Hypnotising
Line 8. i am a rare blue

My god this is confusing. I don't think this is 'Snow' from FFVII. Actually, Sephiroth seems like a good stab. The bait being the black materia, the numbers being the clones, the snow being the Northern Crater, and the hypnosis being his mind altering powers. Also, wasn't he encased in a blue crystal thing?

Karifean
02-23-2016, 05:51 PM

Line 3 - 10 of me will make their magic strong



I think this may disprove the Snow theory because this doesn't fit in with the Snow enemy whatsoever, unless there's something I'm just missing.

Galuf
02-23-2016, 05:53 PM
nah firion. his crystal was green

Formalhaut
02-23-2016, 05:53 PM
You're right. It isn't 'Snow'. Sorry guys for leading us up the garden path with that one. :(

Another new line:

Line 2. You fell for the bait
Line 3. 10 of me will make their magic strong
Line 4. by 20


Line 6. If you are lucky. Even
Line 7. in the snow. Hypnotising
Line 8. i am a rare blue


Okay, new line with Line 6. Thoughts?

Karifean
02-23-2016, 05:57 PM
Line 5 - Find me among needles

Formalhaut
02-23-2016, 05:59 PM
Oh God this is just infuriating. Night Fury is really ​good at puzzles.

Karifean
02-23-2016, 06:00 PM
Line 1

1388

Line 9.

Rising Bile. Paper thin.

Formalhaut
02-23-2016, 06:02 PM
I've remembered why I hate puzzles. As soon as the answer is revealed, it'll all be so obvious, and I'll kick myself for not getting it sooner!

Karifean
02-23-2016, 06:07 PM
Well let's see what we *can* deduce. The needles are probably referring to cactuars? So it's a "something" that can be found both at/with cactuars and in the snow?

Edit: I have absolutely no idea what Line 9 is supposed to mean, by the way.

Do Cactuars even enter snowy areas?

Off the top of my head, only Elio(?) in FFX-2 does that. But I don't think that helps any.

''hey.. psst..

wanna know what rumours i heard about Sephiroth?

i heard that his hair isnt even real.. it are all extensions.. and that he is actually a ginger..
ill bet he even uses make-up to cover his freckles''

I don't even know where to begin with this one.

Galuf

talk what you, Ultimecia

Formalhaut
02-23-2016, 06:17 PM
Does it have anything to do with summons, or espers, in any of the games? I'm focusing on the '10 of' line. Whatever this is, there's more than one.

Shauna
02-23-2016, 06:19 PM
10 of me will make your magic strong by 20

uhh customisation on FFX? What item would you use to customise weapons to +20 strenght? Is this even a thing?

Galuf
02-23-2016, 06:19 PM
20. is also used. im clueless. i thought i was smart to begin this one:lol::lol:

Night Fury
02-23-2016, 06:19 PM
Well you can have 1 of them, but you can use 10 of them to make something else.


;)

So it could be a material then? Interesting theory.

4 Supreme Gems, unfortunately.

But maybe refining in FFVIII?

Karifean
02-23-2016, 06:23 PM
I'VE GOT IT!

It's gotta be the card of that zombie president thing in FF VIII!

Edit: Numbers on it are 1,3,8,8
It can be gotten by carding Cactuars or Geiras
10 refine into an item that teaches Magic +20%

Anyone know the actual English name of that thing? I can only see the German name -.-

Gerogero, that's what it was.

Night Fury

Nice riddle! I don't think I've ever cross-referenced my network of FF information resources this much, this quickly, and on an internet connection this laggy.

Man now I wish I'd have talked Ultima Shadow into joining this competition. He'd have nailed that riddle. :jess:

Out of curiosity, at least if I may know, who came up with the answer on the villain team?

Night Fury
02-23-2016, 06:34 PM
It was Ultros!

He pretty much had it snagged when he guessed the Fake President was the reference in the line 'you fell for the bait'

I'm rather curious as well. I'd love to know what their thought patterns were like.

Ours were basically Snow ------------------> Sephiroth ----> No smurfing clue ----> materials? --> refining!! -> the answer

Shauna

Thankfully, even though we lost, there's a lesson I can take away from this.













I learned that Formy hasn't played Final Fantasy VIII yet. You need to get on that.

I think I'm going to make a rumor about Kefka that he uses drugstore makeup and something like tried out for the part of the Joker in The Dark Night but lost out because he's much too sane.

Matt is posting to Midgar Mist about Caius.

If you've got another one go for it!

Jinx
02-23-2016, 09:38 PM
Did you hear about ULTROS? I heard he's not an octopus. Oh no, he's actually someone's pubic lice. That's why he's so salty.

Also explains the tentacles.


Hey, did you hear about Kefka? Apparently he's so poor and lazy he buys Wet 'n' Wild makeup. My grandma uses the makeup. Jeez.

Also, I heard apparently he tried out for the part of the Joker in The Dark Knight, but Chris Nolan said he was much too sane to play the role.
