Re: XX Questions, Game LXII

Hmm, I'm not sure and maybe totally wrong, but there is something on my radar the whole time and I'm not sure if that fit ... but Texas and the region is still considered Southern US and the stuff, right, so maybe, maybe it was some sort of Cowboy or Texas Ranger, or someone from the wild west, but...

Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

But I understand, of course. British people are very sensitive when it comes to remembering national humiliations. ;-) I should be pursuing a PhD in Iberian studies to even begin comprehending why, as a British person, I should feel national humiliation. On top of that, the event took place before ...

Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

I've founded days of death for Luis da Sousa as 12/15 and 12/25, but no cause of death listed Wikipedia says he was born in 1644 and died in 1721. That fits. I guess it's as good a guess as any, but what did he do that was considered really big and why would the far-right want to have a film made a...

Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

Was he some kind of military commander or officer? Because the question didn't leave much room for royalty, who by this period of European history weren't often commanders Uh, I mean, that's wrong. Lots of the people in the list I posted were both military leaders and members of their country's roy...

Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

You guys should be careful on how you interpret my answer to the 'natural causes' question. It's not a matter of sources being unclear about what type of natural causes befell the hero of our story. Some sources flat out say that this individual died of something other than natural causes. As I alw...

Did he have a Royal title?
As in, was he a king? Or are you asking whether he received a title from a king?
Was he of royal lineage?

Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

I would go for Loius XIV, but the cause of his death was exceptionally well documented.

Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

[...] the discussion is kinda distracting from the game, I think? I mean it's good to talk about it but we shouldn't forget the game. With this, I fully agree. We don't want to hijack this particular game to try to narrow our divide. I'd propose that from now on the first question asked be related ...

Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

5. often been portrayed with a sword
9. born after 1.1.1500

Depicting him with a word may then carry a purely symbolic meaning given that battlefield relevance of melee weapons rapidly declined from the Renaissance onwards.

Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

[...] Anyone who would declare Ishmael dead here would be plainly wrong. This is precisely the reason why I think that talking about Schoediger's state of a fictional character is irrelevant. What about cartoon characters: is Donald Duck dead or alive? What about characters who die multiple times: ...

Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

But doesn't the answer 'yes' to the questions 'dead?' imply that the character was real and has died? In a sense, all fictional characters are not alive, strictly speaking. But are they dead? Generations of real characters from the future aren't alive yet. Does that mean that they are already dead,...

Since he's dead... However, I don't remember what our convention is for the cases where the fictional character dies in their universe.
