Just drop the S/D from it, call it ET, and nobody will be confused!

Because half the year EST is used by nobody anywhere, and the other half EDT is used by nobody anywhere.

I'd very much like for this not to happen, since people who don't know when ET is D or S (D/s?) like me will have a bad time trying to convert it.

Solution for the time:

Use countdown tags in addition to announcing the EST time.

Nobody should be announcing EST at all.

{Episode 03 Fortress}

Image

Triple Threat

Image Image

Cheery vs. Radical


Cheery and Radical, you've been sent into the Fortress by your team for one reason or another, and as such, it's time for you to prove yourselves. One of you will have the opportunity to mutiny to the other losing team from the challenge, while the other will be the fourth person eliminated from the game.

For today's Fortress, you'll be playing a series of 3 different puzzles, aiming for the fastest time in each one. The fastest time on a puzzle wins that point, and the first player to 2 points wins, while the loser is eliminated from the game.

Game #1: Neighbours
  • The game will be played on a 7x7 grid where your goal is to put exactly one of every digit 1 through 7 in every row and column.
  • Some boxes on the grid have a "><" symbol between them. This symbol indicates the numbers in these boxes are adjacent (e.g. 1 >< 2, 3 >< 4, 2 >< 1).
  • If there is no "><" symbol between two boxes, that means the numbers are NOT adjacent.

Game #2: Logic Puzzle
  • You will be given a handful of categories, with a few options in each category, as well as a list of clues. You must logically figure out what the puzzle asks you to determine. For example, "match each person listed to their house color, their type of pet, and their pet's name".

Game #3: Nuribake
  • The game will be played on an 8x8 grid, with all squares grayed out except for several white squares that each contain a number. Your objective is to determine which squares should be filled in white (land), and which should be blue (water).
  • All white squares belong to an "island" of white squares, where all squares on an island are touching either vertically or horizontally. The number in a white square tells you how many white squares make up the island that square belongs to.
  • No island consists of more than one numbered white square.
  • Every island is isolated from every other island vertically and horizontally but they may touch diagonally.
  • All of the blue water squares must be connected.
  • 2x2 blue water blocks are NOT allowed. However, 2x2 white island blocks are.

You have 24 hours to coordinate a time with the moderators and to complete all three puzzles. The puzzles do not need to be played in the order listed above, and do not all have to be played in one sitting. Once you believe you have a puzzle correctly filled in, send it to a mod.
If you are correct, your time will stop, and while there is no penalty for incorrect submissions, you will not be told where you messed up.
Absolutely no outside resources are allowed, and this includes practicing any of the puzzles beforehand.

I just realized both players in the Fortress have usernames with an adjective followed by an animal

Game 1: Neighbors

Image

Cheery Dog took...

Spoiler:
9 minutes 55 seconds.


Image

Radical Rat took...

Spoiler:
47 minutes 20 seconds.

Cheery leads 1-0.






Game 2: Logic Puzzle

Image

Cheery Dog took...

Spoiler:
8 minutes 40 seconds.


Radical Rat took...

Spoiler:
9 minutes 40 seconds.

With that, Cheery is ahead 2-0, and Radical Rat is eliminated from the game. Let's see the final match anyways.






Game 3: Nuribake

Image

Cheery Dog finished in...

Spoiler:
8 minutes 20 seconds.


Image

Radical Rat finished in...

Spoiler:
12 minutes 45 seconds.

Unfortunately, it was a clean sweep. Radical Rat, you have been eliminated.

Cheery Dog has chosen.... NOT to mutiny. He returns to the Yellow Team holding the Safety Token, and passes the other Safety Token to Kdowns.

Challenge 4 will be posted tomorrow afternoon, so take some time off for partying in da club until then. You are not required to be online at the start of the challenge.

As this weekend is a huge holiday weekend for two North American countries, if you have any significantly restrictive V/LA, please notify the mods immediately so that we can assist you in preventing a potential activity strike during that time. This would not excuse you from any regular responsibilities in this game. It would also be helpful to notify your teams for the challenge planning.
Sup, later.

Happy Mexico Day everyone! Oops
Back to school, back to indefinite semi-V/LA. I should still be reachable through normal means though.
