(excuse the poor paint skills but it serves a purpose)

Hello. It's my turn, Iz~, to host a Pointless. If you are new to this, or want a refresher, to enter this quiz and place on the lounge leaderboard and attempt to stop Noah, simply give an answer to each of the ten questions below and send a PM to me. Now this is POINTLESS rather than Family Fortunes this week, so you're looking for the most obscure answer... or are you? You'll get as many points as other people who answer the same as you (with a big penalty for incorrect answers) and your goal is, as the banner implies to get as close to zero as possible. The questions are just below.

Further geeky rambling
I got rather into the Fate universe a few months ago, particularly the two animes Fate/Zero and Fate/Stay Night (UBW). The former I'd now count among the best animes out there. Now don't worry, there's no questions about them and you won't need any knowledge of them as I doubt anyone else here knows it. But I've still worked references to them anyway, because I can do that. See, Fate's premise, in the shortest way I can put it, is a battle royale between varying historical and legendary figures in a modern-day setting. So I've derived a set of normal Pointless questions starting from the identity of these figures. Some are obvious to see, like #1, #3 and #9 if you think about it. Some are me reaching to get some more modern subjects in there. It doesn't have any effect on gameplay, it's just for some Iz flavour if you will.

Anyway, the QUESTIONS. I would like you all to name:

1. One of the Knights of King Arthur's Round Table
2. The full name of an event Ireland has won an Olympic medal for
3. One of the modern countries Alexander The Great's empire stretched over.
4. One of the main series of games from the Assassin's Creed series.
5. One of the heads of state or government implicated in the Panama Papers while in office*
6. The name of a Star Trek species that appears in more than 10 episodes of any of the Star Trek TV Shows and/or films.
7. The full name of a Jason who has had a UK chart hit in the 21st century.
8. A song that was performed during any of Disney's animated classic films released between 1991 and 1999.
9. A female artist Gorgon City collaborated with on Sirens OR a BJSC entry with 'Stone' in the title**
10. An imperial period/era of Japan named after a Japanese Emperor

*you may answer this question with only their title (e.g. X of Country) if you don't remember or wish to look up their name
**to confirm, this is one question, choose only one of the criteria to answer with, I'm intrigued to see which side will win.

So to reiterate, PM me, Iz~. I'll give you a week, so you have until Thursday 9th June 23:59 to send in answers. Results should hopefully be the next day, best of luck!

I've been doing copious amounts of stuff lately so I've been unable to enter any games however my return shall commence here! Some really challenging questions - a Google or two will more than likely be necessary magic.gif

Coming for 29th or 30th again, assuming that many participate. Definitely a challenging round but I felt comfortable taking a risk or two.

I was reluctant to entering this but I thought why not, it's good to google answers to stuff you aren't familiar with and learn about them even if you don't remember it 5 minutes after reading it laugh.gif I did particularly like the idea of having a choice between two subjects in one question too happy.gif

Yeah as above the fact most of the questions not being my expertise is a slight disadvantage to me too :')

I can confirm that there are some people who've answered with loopholes I didn't foresee, and I've accepted them ohmy.gif

Of course there are wrong answers as well, but I think I'm being fair.

Officially closed but unofficially, as I've ended up with 31 entrants (and a big thank you to all of you who have taken the time to enter this unintentionally challenging round) I'll accept any answers anyone else sends me until I start the results around 7pm.

No Noahspike so far! He hasn't been on since Sunday either.
