I've tried a few things for a couple of the quests on there, and now am thoroughly confused. Commence discussion! 
  
Hijacking Starfox's thread (snide)... 

A battle in active time. 

  1. A recent FF spinoff uses this object in the title of the games.
  2. This character is in every game.
  3. Friend of Snafulupagus.
  4. Not quite a blimp.
  5. David Bowie!
 
 Toasty! 
  1. Get over here!
  2. You don't want to fall down here.
  3. If you did, you'd fall on these.
  4. Woah... cameo!
 
 Heart of the Tiger 
  1. One of this race was a turncoat.
  2. Luke Skywalker, but not.
  3. Halo took this system from a spaceship and put it into a suit.
  4. Night Trap!
  5. Lives in Hill Valley.
  
 Get Equipped with. 
  1. Like an arm, but awesomer.
  2. Mustache!
  3. A hardhat with eyes!
  4. 8 of these per game.
  5. The cover doesn't match the contents.
 
The One Free Man 
  1. In every thief's bag (this was broken, it is now fixed, should be obvious.!)
  2. Where'd that guy come from?
  3. It's somewhere in the desert.
  4. Kinda weird that this guy doesn't talk.

i've got one of the ones for Toasty! and tried some other things which i thought were related, they were not and now i am confused

#3 Posted by snide (2413 posts) -

This one is all Brad's doing. I think it's my favorite scavenger set so far. 
 
Actually set this one up with 7500 people, because I figured that would be an actual CHALLENGE for the community. The last set was too easy!

#4 Posted by AdventChild (189 posts) -

I still think that there should be more clues.  Or at least more obvious clues.
 
But maybe I'm just an idiot.

#5 Posted by Fish_Face_McGee (475 posts) -

I've got 2,3, and 4 on A Battle in Active Time.   

#6 Posted by Rallier (1739 posts) -
@snide: Well i sort of ended up adding a list of the launch releases on the console pages so that might have had something to do with it ^^ 
 
I have yet to check this one out. You guys should send out automated PMs whenever something new is added to the site.

Nah your not, some of the things the team think of can be pretty obscure at times, and even if you've got it right you have to make sure to hit up the right page.
 
I think individual clues for each thing in a set would be much better.
#8 Posted by TurboMan (7397 posts) -

wow, going over some obvious stuff, and I'm completely stumped so far.

#9 Posted by Fish_Face_McGee (475 posts) -

Man, it is really not helping me that I don't like Final Fantasy. If anyone could dish out some clues on 1 and 5 for the Active Time Battle one, I'd appreciate it.

#10 Posted by Milkman (16526 posts) -

I'm completely stumped. Anyone got a hint on where to start? I'm not even sure what the theme of this would be.

#11 Posted by Meteora (5787 posts) -

Oh gawd its going to take me some hours to figure this quest set.

#12 Posted by snide (2413 posts) -
@Fish_Face_McGee: There is a subclass of the FF games that always begins with this word. It is an object.
#13 Posted by Dany (7887 posts) -

I don't think i am going to try...just...beyond my level of knowledge

#14 Posted by Rallier (1739 posts) -

Just checked it out and I have no idea what is being asked. 
 
Succes?

#15 Posted by General_D23 (1201 posts) -

Jesus, I don't even know where to begin. One step at a time...to the Final Fantasy page!
#16 Posted by Steve_C (1750 posts) -

I only need the first one for 'the one free man', and have the first 'toasty' one. This is tricky.

#17 Posted by snide (2413 posts) -

I will also give the clue that all of these quests focus on a specific franchise of games. The steps involve finding the cliches, locations, objects and concepts that make up those franchises.

#18 Posted by Zidane_24 (738 posts) -

Uhh I've got 1 3 and 4 for Toasty if people need a hand with those, I guess.

#19 Posted by TurboMan (7397 posts) -

ah, it's not the games, I just figured that out :)... little bit easier

That's the hint for number 1. I'll try to give hints to the other ones I have. 
 
2.  He didn't make the Civilization games 
3. No, Sazh, it's not a pick. 
4. The answer to number 2 controls one of these in at least FFX.
#21 Posted by TurboMan (7397 posts) -

I'm lost on number 5 so far for the FF series.

#22 Posted by Fish_Face_McGee (475 posts) -
@TurboMan: That's the one I have left, too.

Same here. Anybody got it yet?

#24 Posted by KaosAngel (13765 posts) -
@Fish_Face_McGee: I don't get the first hint, and I'm missing the #5 for FF.
 
I have almost all of the Half Life ones...those were easy.
 
Didn't start on the others yet.
#25 Posted by ricetopher (1046 posts) -

For #5 on the Final Fantasy one, think about the character design, maybe more on a bigger picture for JRPGs

#26 Posted by Jeffsekai (7026 posts) -

I think we need clues for each Step.

#27 Posted by Shane (150 posts) -

Hehe, this is good, only need number 5 for the active time battle quest.
 
I haven't got the slightest clue what to be looking for in the last 3 quests.

Number one (the one that Snide said) is a word that is in a recent spinoff series of FF games.
#29 Posted by Zidane_24 (738 posts) -

For Toasty: 
 
1. He humbly requests that you move closer to him (too obvious?)
3. How you FINISH HIM.
4. Not a bunch of James Marsters...es..., , just a gruesome way to die.

#30 Posted by Crono11 (1639 posts) -

For number 5 in Final Fantasy think is that a boy or a girl?    Any clues to the first one in FF would be appreciated.

#31 Edited by Slique (129 posts) -

I'm stuck on 4/5 so far. Great clues, by the way, Fish_Face_McGee.
 
Edit: @crono11: People will often tell others to look inside this spherical object.

#32 Posted by Fish_Face_McGee (475 posts) -
@crono11: It's a word contained in a recent Final fantasy spinoff series.

Did it for me, thanks. For number one, Dave's hint on the first page is good.

How is _________ and Gravity gun not part of The One Freeman?  
 
EDIT: Dave fixed it YAY!

Me too.  I just had to remember how to spell the damn word.
#36 Posted by KaosAngel (13765 posts) -

Yay, I got all the ones for Final Fantasy and missing one from Half Life.
 
One down, a few more to go!  Thanks for helping guys!

#37 Posted by Creamypies (4050 posts) -

Haha number 5 for the first set is brilliant!

any more word hints, I understand the idea, just can't find the page(how was it not spikey-haired protagonist)
#39 Posted by Crono11 (1639 posts) -

For one of the Heart of the Tiger quests it's what people used to call CG cut scenes. Or maybe that was just my friends.

I thought the same thing definitely about crowbar.

Anybody got number four or number five on Toasty yet? All I need to finish that quest.

#43 Posted by Slique (129 posts) -

I was amazed Moogle and Belts weren't apart of the Final Fantasy set to be honest.

I was so sure it was hermaphrodite and after seeing the page even exits here, even more! "
Hermaphrodite is more an actuality.  This is along the same lines, but it's the word that refers to the actual look...kinda.

It's about the fact that the people in the game look like both males or females. It begins with the letter A.

God I still can't get number 1 in FF. I don't think I've ever felt so stupid.

What does almost EVERY FF game has a central theme?  Hint, it's right in front of you in FF9.

For #4 - A lot of fighters on the losing end of the battle end up on these. 
 
Got a hint for #3?
EDIT: Nevermind.

Christ, I barely know any of the existing quests.  These are just brutal, I think Brad's taking revenge on us all.
