And before I forget: +2 points to you for two clearly linked, yet still sufficiently obscure, clues.

C is not the same as the one from 1981.
. . . as Steven was quick to point out. I think the quote at the beginning of MH2 completely justifies this one, though.

TM has nothing to do with Andrew's old crew.
It's a shame MH4 is "S" instead of "TS", or I could make a great pun here that nobody would understand. :)

Quote:
TE is the name of at least five songs and three bands.
And at least three books, and probably a handful of movies. Hey, I picked something descriptive -- I never said I picked something original.

Quote:
S is not the same as the one from 2004, either.
Amazingly, I had completely forgotten about that 2004 release. Man, memories . . .

Speaking as someone who knows the titles, I can assure you they weren't supposed to be easy. Honestly, the only reason I caved in with the straightforward clue that "MH1 isn't Characters" was because I realized -- after the fact -- that everyone would just assume that it was. No more freebies; now you just get obscure hints. :)

And BTW, I'll definitely say something the moment I see anyone get 'em all right. I also promise to check in on this thread every time I visit the forums for long enough to post anything. So if you see me post here, and I haven't announced a winner, I'm afraid your guesses were not yet 100% accurate.

In other words, to be crystal clear, none of the posts above this one have gotten the four titles right. But I'm quite certain someone will at some point . . . y'all are just too darn crafty for your own goods.

For the record, I'll say this much:

1. There is at least one title that multiple people have already guessed right.
2. There is at least one title that nobody has guessed right yet.

I'm going to be different, I don't think C is champions. Which gives me an awful lot of other suggestions to pilfer off of, so I'm going to keep the size down. My money would be on the first combination.

MH1: Conspiracy OR Conspirators OR Collaborators
MH2: The Mission
MH3: The Enemy
MH4: Secrets OR Salvation OR Support OR Scourge OR Scarifice OR Sabotage OR Sentinals OR Style OR Survivors

UNOFFICIAL MONSTER HUNTERS TITLE GUESSING COMPETITION
I really wish this were in a separate thread. I want to hear speculation and hints about the actual content, not the titles. I want to hear what people will use the series for in their campaigns. The title contest is all well and good, but I'd rather see the original focus of this thread maintained

Sorry. From my perspective, "speculation about the titles" is in the same ballpark as "speculation about the content," so I figured it fit. (That is, knowing that MH4 is "Survivors" is very different from knowing that MH4 is "Secrets," in that each title implies something very different about the content to be found therein -- and, to some extent, the focus of the series itself.)

If people think that it's obtrusive, though, I'd be happy to split it out into its own thread. Quite honestly, the only reason I didn't do so was to keep it low-key. I didn't want to give the impression that this was any sort of "Big GURPS Contest" or some-such, as it's nothing more than me having fun, off-the-record and (thus, in a sense) under-the-radar. :)
