1. Dead Pharaoh DFleming has a point... but that's all I'm saying for now.

The time has arrived for your final Cleansing Ritual Challenge: "Burning Sands of Time"

For the past almost 3 months, you've been traversing the sands of Egypt (in a roleplaying kinda way) striving to become the Eternal Pharaoh of Egypt. Through this three months, the concept of time has been as integral a part of our journey as any other. We've had timed challenges, timed voting periods, times to meet for challenges, times of excitement, times of predictability, times of curiousity, and times of frustration.

How well your timing has become, and your knowledge of the time here, from memory, notes, review, strategy, guesswork, and suspicions will determine how you do on this challenge. I seriously doubt anybody gets a perfect score. Here's what you must do:

You now each have 30 points. Your task to PM me 6 times. Your first PM should be titled "Start Challenge". From then, you will PM me 5 additional times. The number of minutes that pass between each PM will be used to determine your answer for each of the following questions. Each question has a number answer, and for every 1 you are off from the correct answer, you will lose 1 point.

Only your first 6 PMs to me will be accepted, and your first PM must be made before 10pm tonight. Only those who PM me all 6 times can be cleansed. In case of tie, the Pharaoh wins, as always.

X1 = The number of dead Pharaohs who were sent the Secrets of the Pharaohs by Animand

X2 = The number of times you have personally voted for the person who immediately became Pharaoh

X3 = The number of different pyramid pictures that have been posted in the Ruling Egypt thread

X4 = The square root of the total number of "tablets" I gave out in a certain cleansing ritual challenge

X5 = The total number of distinct votes (not including any vote changes) for the next Pharaoh that I received throughout the whole game

To recap, you PM me with the title "Start Challenge", then X1 minutes later PM me again with "Burning Sands of Time 1" title, then X2 minutes later PM me again with "Burning Sands of Time 2" title, then X3 minutes later PM me again with "Burning Sands of Time 3" title, then X4 minutes later PM me again with "Burning Sands of Time 4" title, then X5 minutes later PM me again with "Burning Sands of Time 5" title. Your score will then be 30 minus the number of minutes you were off of each X value.

Any questions? No? Good! Best of luck!

2. Bah, I knew I'd forget some piece of obvious information.

The person with the highest score (which could possibly even be a negative number) will win, barring a tie.

3. All I can say right now is good luck guys.

Good Luck to the final three!

5. Well, I think I started a little too late (I'm just finishing up now), but congrats to whichever one of you won! Final 3, love all around

6. Congrats to whoever wins, and hopfully you will take me with you to the final 2. If you don't I had a blast playing, and no hard feelings.

I feel like I might have interpreted the questions wrong and therefore probably lost.

7. Yeah... I definitely messed up, since I started off just answering the questions

8. I am 100% sure I messed up so... I think we all lost.

9. Woohoo! Let's see which one of us gets the most negative score! I'm betting I'll get a negative 20, assuming he even counts my 5 minutes late final PM

10. Okay, I'm about to start the "probably going to get interrupted by my family a million times and take hours to do because of that" scoring process. If you think you had difficulty interpreting one or more of the questions, please PM me telling me what you think I meant by one the question(s). If I determine that your interpretation is valid, then your scoring will be appropriately adjusted.
