Myn first quizz!

O gentil rederes, now that ich haue completid a meme, ich wolde fayne lerne much of the oothir VII liberal arts of blogging, the which aren:

the bloviatrivium
I. angrye commentes that run for pages
II. lengthie monologue advocatinge my political posicioun
III. bringing nazis yn to an argument
the procrastidrivium
IV. memes
V. quizzes and surveys
VI. makynge avatars
VII. poosting pictures

Ywis, having nowe tryed my hande at memes, ich haue to the next art of the procrastidrivium y-moved, and haue made a quiz of medieval trivia. Ich warne yow, this ys hard-core stuff, nat for the casual redere. Yt ys meant to test the depth of yower lore and knowlech:

The Gret Quizz of Medievale Trivia

Update: Thogh earlier it semed that ther was sum problem at the syte, the quiz semeth to werke nowe. Also, ich warne yow that it is full of questiones the which aren trewely obscure, so be nat discouragid. If ye haue questiones about the questiones, ye may ask heere (yet may ye plese write 'spoilerz' bifor yower comment so as nat to ruin it for oothirs).

Anothir Update: For thos consultinge the internet, Ich haue discoverid that wikipedia is soorely incorrecte concernynge oon of the answeres. Be war er ye be wo!

Forgive mine poore use of English.

Ich think nat it is a deadlie problem, for ich haue attemptede youre quiz with much trouble but nat with difficulties of a technicale nature.

Alas! Ich am nat well y-versed in thys hard-core lore, and ich haue failed to gaine ane gret victorie.

But it pleases me mightily that ich did at the lest getten the question right about the Saintes of Englande, and which of them are nat English ate alle.

Ich hope that your othere rederes are able to attempt the quiz before many houres have y-passed.

Me dredeth that perhaps y do nat haue a lyfe, either, else why shoulde y knowen these straunge thynges?

Ich haue taken up thy gauntlet and tryed thy quizz. And verily, mine steadfastness was sorely tryed, and ich was y-tempted to consult yon heathen Oracle, yclept Google. But Ouer Lord hath showed me muche mercy, and strengthened mine Pride and Self-Respect, whereupon ich set mich withe Honesty to the taske. Ich acceptere mine seven-and-fifty pro ct. withe goode cheere and humilitie.

Ma Chere Pippa,

Do ye com from York or sum thing? Yower Englisshe hath nothing of the fancie frensshe maner, al of the newe jette, that is in London y-spoken. Ywis, taak this nat as an affront, but ich kan scarecely vndirstond yower speche.

Am I to presume that yower English frende is at an uncouth bar? Certes, ther are many inns and tavernes that are less than couth, and yf he hath wandered in to oon, then he shal see much of uncoutherie. Ich hope that ye fynde hym and taak hym from that uncouth bar eftsoon.
