That is a good idea.

I think a good question would be:
Who were the Five Tiger Generals (五虎上將)in the ROTK TV Series (三國演義)of Shu?
I included chinese just in case some of you fellow chinese don't understand the terms.
(I am half chinese half American) 8-)

How about: "Who was the first emperor of Shu?"
That would be obvious. There can be multiple answers like, Liu Bei, Liu Xuande, Emperor Zhao Lie.
Or: "What another name for Kongming?"
The answers could be Zhuge Liang, Wolong, Master Wolong, Zhuge Kongming.
Or: "Who was Zhou Yu serving under when he died?"
Answer: Sun Quan
The only problem with this is that if there are people who don't really know much about this topic, they won't be able to make an account which, I guess they don't deserve if they can't answer these simple questions, but, it is still kind mean… Anyways, those were my ideas. Hope you like it!!! :D :lol:

I think it's fair. This forum is quite specific. I don't imagine people who don't know the answers would want or need to post here.

You'll have people who have played the games who really know nothing about the period other than details they gleaned from DW who won't know the answer to questions like: 'who is Kongming'.

If they really care about this, then they can Google it easily enough. :P

SoSZ was the first forum I joined and if I had to answer a question I didn't know to join the board it's entirely possible I'd have ran away and never joined and I'm very pleased that didn't happen!

Keep in mind that there will be people who'd fit here well, but originally know nothing about the three kingdoms period and came here only because their friend asked them to.

So while it feels clever to use rotk trivia, it may be best to stick to extremely obvious trivia ("Which is a major three kingdoms city: London, Luoyang, or New York?") or to use non-3k questions ("What is three plus five?").
Unless I specifically say otherwise, assume I am talking about historical Three Kingdoms, and not the novel.
