Caretaker Decathlon

It's night, and you find yourself standing in a darkened room. Before you is a metal dish bearing intricate designs, and bottles glistening with brightly colored liquid memories. You've never used a pensieve before, but you're ready to try it.

Visually, you inspect the bottles. Some memories look rather new, shining brightly in crystal clear containers. Others are kept in dust-covered glass bottles which make the glistening silver strands appear to be duller - these may have been around for centuries. While you're not sure which memories you will uncover, you know that you have been given much-coveted access to the recollections of some of the greatest figures in wizarding history.

Extending your arm, you select a bottle and carefully unstopper it before pouring its contents into the pensieve. Then, taking a deep breath, you lower your head to begin your journey.

I also have a request about the roleplay. In the following quote, what do you mean by not in sequence?

Quote:
• Each user must make a minimum of three posts each (not in sequence) to be counted towards this task and must be a minimum of 150 words.

Yes, it was. Thank you for painting that out! It has been fixed now. @Elsie-Lydell

It means that you can’t post your minimum of three posts one right after another. You can do the first post, your partner responding in the second, and you posting again and so on. @AccioNox

It's not an uncommon question for people to ask if they can post their next response even though their partner(s) haven't yet, so this kind of avoids that

I didn't mean that. I just meant that the 'not in sequence' part complicated matters for me.

I did the Caretaker Decathlon two years ago. We earned points by doing contests. This one looks different - we earn tickets and the main prizes are randomized at the end?

@Morgana-Malipiero Yes. We decided to style this Decathlon more like our normal CCs this time around rather than have users earn points like the last one.

haha, yes, it's a lot easier this time. Two years ago, it was a lot more of a challenge. The only way to win was to do all 10 contests and score decently in them.

I remember here was a difficult jigsaw where the winners were decided on speed - I think I did that puzzle about 10 times!

I don't feel pressure to do all the contests this time - it just depends on luck with randomiser
