10000 Posts. 10k. Wow. What a long, strange trip it's been.

We've had some good times, OOT/Asylum, from the perennial meltdowns, ding threads, spamming, gaming, that one admin slot that always seems to attract creepers, Mindel's Huntingtons, internet tigers, Allegory's bad touch, and run on sentences. But we've had some bad times too; the tragedy of Brown Duck, the fact that I'm still not guru, Senji's child abuse and worst of all Almalieque. All in all, it certainly was a Jophiel Jophiel Jophiel, I think we can all agree on that. Or at least that this post is like, woah, TL;DR.


This Ding thread is a multi-parter. It's a ding thread, but it's also a contest of wits and wills.

Part One: The Naming of the Names.

But enough talk, lets get down to business. Specifically, the business of mentioning all of you so you'll reward me with sweet, sweet rate ups.

Trial One [1]
:Getting past security
----------------------------

Those of you who managed at least a passable grade on your entrance examination wake up in austere structure, It appears the facilitators of this grand adventure have what could be colloquially described as a 'minimalist design sense'. Every wall is pristinely white, broken up only by thin metalic mechanisms ever so often, which seem to serve as gateway mechanisms - or more plainly, elaborate keyholes. You don't see anyone else around, The staffing seems as sparse as the walls. You decide that you'd like a look around and proceed to walk the halls; and as you approach the walls with the metallic grids on them, After a brief flash of light, the wall swiftly moves upward, granting you access. Continuing on in this fashion, you eventually make you way to one of these grates, which is unlike the others. The wall behind it is pitch black, standing out like a sore thumb in the sea of white around it. Intrigued, you approach, and a shrill siren breaks the stifling silence, screaming in protest. An unseen intercom echo's it's sentiments, informing you that "SECURITY SHALL REMOVE ALL INTRUDERS FROM THE COMPLEX". Feeling unwilling to meet said security team, you should try you hand at proceeding forward. Taking a closer look at the doorway mechanisms, it seems to be a 5x5 grid panel, with 20 small holes located around it. Bold red letters have appeared above this panel, and atop the other doorways, stating "MANUAL ONLY". Reaching out to touch the mechanism, a narrow beam of colored light is emitted from each of the small holes in the outer rim. The colors swirl and clash, and the door does not move. Examining one of the other doors, you see that there are tiny mirrors are diagonally positioned on the grid-work, such that the light would be reflected in an orderly fashion. To test this, you touch this white door and the beams of light intersect in a much less random way, hitting other beams of similar color. and the door opens abruptly. you move on to a third normal door, and relieve it of it's mirrored plates, 10 in all, and return to the black door. Seeking to escape the splitting headache that the siren and intercom are producing you start in on cracking the optical key frame. As these mirrors are fragile, no more than two can be placed in any one row or column of the grid.

A closeup of the circuitry of the black door.

Submit your answers via PM in whatever format you please.

Unlimited submissions, but the first player to submit a correct answer who has also not submitted an incorrect answer will have an advantage in a later round.

Current Trial: The Armory.

Trials Will conclude when only 2 remain.
---------------------
Part 4: A Final Confrontation.

{Details will be forthcoming}

[ Surviving Heroes                         ] 
 
[                                          ]


There can be only one.
--------------------
Part 5: The Spoils

In addition to fame for all eternity, the one left standing at the end will receive something(s) from the vault. I'll need a mailing address to send it.

Trial Two [2]
:A gallery of mimics.
----------------------------

You step through the gateway and enter a slick metallic antechamber. A dull hum emanates from a machine to your right and from a strip of bright blue lighting that encircles the room. To your left is a large black box with no discerning features except a circular disk. Directly in front of you, about 20 feet away is a gate, unlike the others you’ve seen before in this place, with two brightly lit green triangles on it. A platform is situated near the gate, and behind it a thick semi-translucent wall. Beyond, you see other rooms of a similar size, but you can't quite make out the details of their contents.

Above the box is a window, through it you see another person, but they appear to be in the oriented in a different direction, where to your left is downward. You hear a cry, somewhere in the distance. What do you do?

Note, you may carry three things at ones.


[You may answer in either the thread or via PM. Final results should be via PM. Standard rules apply.]

[Ends 3/10, or 24 hours after a breach has been found. Whichever comes last.]

Happy. Very happy. But I didn't chew that last gingernut biscuit enough. A sharp bit is sitting in my oesophagus.

OMG, I spelled oesophagus right on the first try!

Which reminds me, a very sharp portrait of you came up on my screensaver, and you looked absolutely smashing. (Read yummy.) But there was no use trying to find it in My Pictures. It's not under Aethien, so I don't know where I've put it.
