[2019] The Time To Guess Is At Hand!

Post by *The Butler » Sat Nov 02, 2019 12:29 pm

Please make guesses as your regular self as I am about to disable the MASQ accounts. :)

Please remember to use the SPOILER tags when making your guesses so you don't ruin it for anyone else!

I also recommend adding "....." at the end of the person's true name so the spoiler tags look longer than the names! That way it doesn't make it too easy for others to guess without actually checking spoilers!

So for example rather than say "I think The Butler is Tawmis"

You'd say "I think The Butler is Tawmis........"

Also reveal who you are in Spoilers, so when you post others - it's not easy to see, "Hey Tawmis didn't guess who the Butler was! He must be the Butler!"

Also if someone guesses who you are put the Correct or Incorrect in spoilers so it doesn't sway someone else's guess unless they want to see the spoiler.



The MASQs were:

* Khelgar Ironfist
* Baked Potato
* Cornfed
* Roland M. Tee
* Interrobang

The people wearing MASQs were:

Semi-Happy Partygoer
BBP
tassieboy
Rath Darkblade

Here are my guesses:

I think that Khelgar Ironfist is .............................drumroll......................me.

I think that Baked Potato is .............................drumroll......................Semi-Happy Partygoer, because I noticed that neither BP or SHP post too regularly.

I think that Interrobang is .............................drumroll......................BBP. Why? Because of various clues that I forgot, but I still remember that!

Not sure about Roland M. Tee or Cornfed, though.

Rath, you're incorrect. I wasn't Baked Potato.

I think Baked Potato was tassieboy, since he showed up only briefly.

Khelgar was Rath, beyond a shadow of a doubt, given the wild sense of humor he displayed. He also had the highest post count, which he's had for the past two years running.

Interrobang's got me a bit confounded, but I'm pretty sure it was notbobsmith, given the complexity of the clues which I recall him implementing last year. Option 2 would be BBP.

Roland was me, since I'm a big fan of MT-32 music, and actually came up with the name before last year's MASQ had ended. So I've been holding that one in reserve for over a year now.

Cornfed was probably BBP, because I think she's a fan of whacky cartoon characters. Option 2 would be notbobsmith, but I think my first guesses are correct.

I have Khelgar Ironfist as Rath but that was the only one I'm sure about.

I'd forgotten about thinking of a MASQ identity this year (oops!) until October 3rd. On a whim I yelled Cornfed! at Tawm.

I believe there's not a worse character imaginable (outside Donald Duck) I could have used - not only because I did mention I love Duckman, but also because:
-In the first season Duckman extensively uses music by Frank Zappa in its episodes;
-One of Zappa's sons Dweezil voiced the character Ajax in the series. I saw Dweezil live multiple times and there's a picture of myself and Dweezil hovering around on the forum here;
-The character Cornfed is based on The Adventures Of Greggery Peccary - not just my favourite Zappa song but the one I tried to graduate on;
-Cornfed is voiced by Gregg Berger, who also voices Abbé Arnaud in GK3, my favourite alltime game;
-The producers of Duckman, Klasky/Csupo, were also producers of the earlier Simpsons - the pilot I, Duckman has an extensive Simpsons parody, in the Noir Gang episode Cornfed hurls the sling "Simpsons wannabe!" at Duckman, and in the episode "Haunted Society Plumbers" none other than Homer Simpson himself has a cameo at the ending! I love early Simpsons!
-Another famous voice in the series is that of that other BB hero Tim Curry - as King Chicken he voiced many different characters, from Borschbelt comic to erotic French nanny - in fact it was watching him switch between his elegant English brogue and his Duckman voices in an interview that made me a fan. And of course he's Gabriel Knight.

So for all those reasons and more I decided not to post too many clues that would give me away - though I would like to point out the "I proposed" from the Two Lies One Truth topic - I had only just been proposed to. Not by my BF but by a random client on the phone. And for the curious, I replied that I already have a boyfriend.

I think that Cornfed is tassieboy......... mainly because he was late to the game and Cornfed showed up late.

I think that Interrobang is me because, well, it IS me.............................................................................

I think that Khelgar Ironfist is BBP. This is mostly a guess. I think it's BBP mainly because of the frequency of the posts.........................................................

I think that Roland M. Tee is Semi-Happy Partygoer. Another guess. Some of the humor in the Continue the Story Game seemed like SHP....................

I think that Baked Potato is Rath... this is mostly a guess by process of elimination..........................................................................

For me, Rath is incorrect and Semi-Happy Partygoer is correct.

Yay! I guessed everyone correctly first try.

notbobsmith, you're correct about who I was.

Yep. I joined in late and then got super busy with work. Sorry about that.

No need to apologise, that's perfectly understandable! Hopefully you'll be able to join in more next year if you wish.

And kudos on the live streaming, that's a wonderful idea.
