Standings So Far In Curse of the Spider King KNOWLEDGE quest

MillardtheMK=50 points

Chris= 50 points

Melissa Rose= 50 points

I received no e-mails with details of friends found in Wayne Thomas Batson or Christopher Hopper's books guys, so either I made it too hard, or you were too busy for the quest, one of the two. Which was it? Let me know in the comments. And if you thought that was hard, well shoot ;) the COURAGE part of this is going to have you quaking in your boots.

Nay, I don't think it was too hard, I think that I was too busy, I would have loved to do it but with WTB and CH's contest, school, my book, reading books for fun(which I haven't been able to do lately much :( ) I haven't got time. Sorry.

Melissa Rose said...

It didn't sound too hard and I thought it would be fun to do even though I only have a few of the books with me right now. I simply ran out of time.

Millardthemk said...

Scribe i TOTALLY apologize for not putting in the friends. I DID look them up and found about 15 halfway through TDW. I am SOOO SRRY! I shall send them to you tomorrow *if I can find the paper*. So that it is not invane. I feel deeply sorry at the way this contest has started, plz take heart we shall do better.

I'll tell you what, since no one was able to make the deadline tonight--I'll run all three contests till the bitter end. From now until October 15th. So, I'll reopen the Knowledge--and Courage will run with that and I'll shorten Heart. Well, you'll understand why when I post it.

Chris said...

It wasn't too hard I was just gone most of Saturday and didn't see the post until it was too late. If you want my list I will attempt to send it after I'm done with school and stuff

Millardthemk said...

Scribe: Though my thouts don't mean much, I recomend just running C and K at the same time and NOT shortening Heart. Or End K now! I don;t wanna miss a second!

I just didn't have the books, except for the one I had just lent to a friend.
