Nerdwarts SURPRISE Mini #1: Troll in the Dungeon!


Recommended Posts

:redface: hate to ask... but Ive never seen this exercise mentioned before... I have no idea what it is, although I'm fairly certain it involves some kicking to  the side... maybe.

 

Could someone explain or link to a video or something? please?

Oh this is perfect. Time to bust out my combat side kicks and go to town.

And there's me :tongue:

 

(I'm doing wimpy box jumps on my stairs... One day I'll graduate to jumping to the second step, but that day is not today...)

 

Tour, you're not alone. I watched the videos on box jumps, looked at my stairs, aimed for the second one,and my stupid body said "NOPE!" First stair jumps all the way... and I still had to break after 25. Sigh.

 

Also, dang, go assassins! Less than nine hours to kick the crap out of a troll. Woot!

............ can I still do the box jumps? I mean, I'll add the side kicks, but I was really looking forward to do the box jumps. :lol: (And: I CALLED IT. I knew I wouldn't get to my jumps before we hit 2000! :P Assassins, you're crazy and you rock!!)

( I am at this part in the book as of this morning. ) I will warm up for my run with some side kicks if it's still on after work!

Me too - did some of each despite the number being reached already. It still appears to impact my teams score / % as far as I can tell, so my take is that the number listed is the minimum not the maximum. I mean, the form appears to be configured so that reps in excess of the minimum number listed have the same impact on team %, if that makes sense. Perhaps that can be confirmed by someone in the know?

I think I'll be locking down the former exercise if/when a new one is posted, but we're also keeping track of the state of the spreadsheet at the time that the initial goal is reached. :D

Question, then: I'm quite all right with my contributions not helping out my team in this case, because fair's fair and it's no one's fault that #mylifeischaos, but can I still do the exercises anyway for at least the stat point? At the rate the past few minis have gone and with my schedule, I can't actually contribute until it's too late. I've never been able to, starting from last challenge when the surprise minis would pop up, which is why I never did anything for them because I couldn't. I missed the chance to contribute for both of the exercises so far (for the side kicks, I was asleep for the entire duration, and for the box jumps, I was too busy between work and rehearsal and had absolutely no way to squeeze them in), and if it doesn't help my House it doesn't help my House, and I'm betting I won't be able to contribute for the third piece for the same exact reasons. It admittedly takes the fun out of the minis for me, but that's my problem and no one else's because again, #mylifeischaos. <3

 

tl;dr -- even if our contributions don't help our House because the exercises are done, can we still do them for the stat point?

You've already participated, and you've earned your stat point even if you bow out now. :D  The opportunities to participate will exist until the mini's scheduled end time, so you will have several days!

Awesome! I'll still try to do what I can when new exercises get posted, but it's good to know that even if I'm too late to actually help my team with the points, I can at least get myself that STA point! Thanks!! :love_heart:

I'm confused.  If the exercises are going to be locked down once the goal is met, how can we still participate after that point?  Or, does that only apply to the people who managed to get them in before it was locked but after the goal was met?

 

Can I do box jumps when I take the boys to the park tomorrow and have that count for participating, or will that be too late?  If I do side kicks this afternoon, do those count as participating, or will that be too late as well? 

 

Or, do the exercises continue to be open for additional contributions only between when the goal is met and the next exercise is posted?

 

I really want to participate, but these are going by so fast that I really don't have time to do any of them before the goals are met and/or the next exercise is posted. :(

At this time, box jumps are locked, but side kicks are not.  Once the next phase begins, the side kicks will be locked in favor of the new item, and so on.  Tomorrow, you will likely have a different item that you can do at the park that is not box jumps.  if you want to do kicks this afternoon (depending on when afternoon is for you), they are likely to still be open.  Make sense?

Nice job on the kicking, Assassins!  You've definitely dealt the troll a grave blow.  Unfortunately....

 

509352063.jpg

 

Now he's REALLY TICKED OFF.  He's swinging left and right and it's all you'll be able to do to avoid these blows... time to dodge and wait for an opening before you can finish him off!

 

 

HOW TO PLAY:

 

You know what this means, right?  We're going to do some basic parkour rolls.

 

 

Get out of the way before you're crushed!

 

One rep consists of a single roll.  You may roll forward or backward, but please ensure you use proper form and protect your neck.  You'll need to perform 2,500 reps to dodge the troll's blows before he tires himself out enough to leave an opening!

 

The clock is ticking..... this mini isn't over and it ends at SUNDAY 5PM EST... so get to it.

 

 

>>TROLL, YOU'RE GOING DOWN<<

 

 

 

Still need to sign up for a House? PM Hazard to be Sorted.

 

 

 

Normal Mini-Challenge Rules

 

- Mini-challenges are not mandatory, feel free to ignore this one if you don't want to participate. Don't let mini-challenges hinder your own goals.

 

- If you're not sure how to register something, post it here.

 

- Just use your same line from the earlier portion of the mini.... there's a new column for parkour rolls, so fill in your numbers there.

 

- Keep it simple!

 

- Don't hurt yourself!

 

 

Assassins, remember to be safe and have fun!

When I learned to do these, my instructor told me that 'use the motion of putting on a seat belt, and let that move curl your body :P

 

And because I am a nerd...
