Kuja? He was "born" first and deemed a failure after all.

Not Kuja or Ardyn. I like the rationale behind both of them though.

Here is line three for Limerick Eight. The maximum score is now three points.

There was a firstborn son
Who did not shine like the sun.
While he possessed the same crest,

Ardbert (Warrior of Darkness)

Born in the First, one of the shards of Hydaelyn and is therefore a "firstborn son".

His title is explanatory because he shines like obsidian.

Same crest I presume that just means the Warrior job crest, even though Derplander has also branched out to [checks notes] Dragoon, Monk, Samurai and Dark Knight.

Sabin Fargo he was kinda the womanizer and i believe older then Edgar, Edgar was more serious in all manners. The right to be king also shone in a coin tosd in which Sabin used a dake coin so Edgar would win.

I really love the rationale behind it being Ardbert (one of my favourite characters now). The idea about it being Sabin is also interesting (although it was Edgar who rigged the coin toss and was the womaniser - neither of them really wanted to be king and he did it because he knew Sabin's heart was in freedom).

Both argued well, but both incorrect.

Clive from FFXVI? 👀
Correct! That's three points.

The complete Limerick Eight:
There was a firstborn son
Who did not shine like the sun.
While he possessed the same crest,
T’was his lil bro who was blessed
Until their town became bitterly overdone.

Bonus: Anyone can complete this bonus to win a single point. Simply post in this thread before the contest ends.

I have added all of the bonus threads in the first post for ease of access (listed under 'Previous Limericks'. These remain accessible until the end of this game, so if anybody would like to earn extra points in order to give themselves a boost then there are plenty of options to choose from.

Three bonus points have been given out to Miko and one bonus point has been given out to Linnaete for thread posts.


Here is line one for the next limerick.

Limerick Nine:
There was an adventurer of a sort

I give up.

Who do I barter for at least a point for making a decent argument?

Bartz?

.... Corecct! You score a maximum of five points! :O

Here is the completed Limerick Nine:
There was an adventurer of a sort
Who wandered aimlessly for naught.
His loyal partner,
Helped him travel farther.
The lad’s name is less rude in the port!

Molosev scored a bonus point that round.

I give up.

I do feel sorry for you. :sad2:
But a few post for bonus points could help you out!
