Hey there, Battleborn! HandsomeCam here, with an irresponsibly fashionably late addition to the Battleborn Day #4 festivities!

You see, in order to roleplay effectively, you need to have an extensive knowledge of your character’s lore as well as their personality, and I’ve had to do my fair share of research and digging into the official lore pages of the characters I’ve roleplayed as, to accomplish that. In this event, I will be giving a quiz to see who the biggest lore masters in Solus are! Here’s what you need to know to participate, and maybe win some sweet prizes:

How will the quiz work?

The quiz will consist of sixty questions, with two questions pertaining to each character. It will be split into two parts of thirty questions each, the first easy and the second hard.

IMPORTANT: All answers will be taken directly from the in-game character lore pages, but the answers to questions regarding one character might be found on the lore page of a different character.

What if I don't have every character's lore completed?

If you don’t have every character’s lore completed to look through for the answers, don’t worry, because if you are reading this, than you have access to the internet. The complete lore of every character can be found on @lowlines “Battleborn Lore Bible” website, under the “Heroes” tab. Here is the link: https://lowlidev.com.au/battleborn/lore-bible

When will the quiz be available to complete?

The first part of the quiz will be posted in an update in this thread, on the beginning of Saturday, May 5th, at 12:00am U.S. Central Time (my own time zone). The second part will be posted in another update exactly twenty-four hours later, on the beginning of Sunday, May 6th, at 12:00am U.S. Central Time. The reason I am splitting the quiz into two parts a day apart, is to allow participants from all time zones an equal chance to win, which requires me to post the exact time that the quizzes will be posted (barring any unfortunate incidents that may cause me a delay, of course). Because the answers can all be found in the character lore pages, this contest is likely to take the form of a lore scavenger hunt, so make sure to be ready at the time of the second quiz’s posting to have your best shot at winning!

IMPORTANT: No submissions will be accepted as of 12:00am U.S. Central Time, on Monday, the 7th of May.

What can I win?

There will be three winners, and they will be the first three people to submit all correct answers. In the unlikely event that not enough participants manage to submit all correct answers, the remaining winners will be determined by most correct answers submitted. Here are the prizes you can win:

1st place winner: Signed Battleborn lithograph.
2nd place winner: Complete set of 25 Battleborn collector’s cards.
3rd place winner: SHiFT code.

How do I submit my answers?

Answers must be submitted by sending me a personal message (PM), and this thread will be locked to prevent people from posting their answers in it, in order to make this necessary. The reason for this is to prevent people from copying the answers of others in an attempt to win.

Do you have what it takes to be a lore master? Be sure to check this thread during the Battleborn Day weekend (exact dates and times above) to find out!

TOBY’S EPIC LORE QUIZ: PART TWO:


So here we are! The second, actually difficult half of Toby’s Epic Lore Quiz! Why is it more difficult? Well, for starters, I scrambled the order of the questions, which I’m sure will prove a tad annoying, mwuhahaha! The other reason it is more difficult is because you won’t be finding the answers to some characters’ questions in their own lore pages, but in the lore pages of others. That being said, I threw in a lot of particularly funny questions to find the answers to, and I think you’ll enjoy my half more than Toby’s as a result. Also, those of you who have PMed me already, please make sure to hit “reply” in the PM to make it a new post when you post your answers for the second half, so that I will be alerted that you’ve posted them. Finally, remember that speed of submissions is a factor if you want to win one of the three prizes. So, without further ado… Nova?
