1st place  lefeubleu FQtrahI  1.000 Dr.  1.759
2nd place  ---  750 Dr.  ---
3rd place  ---  500 Dr.  ---

Well done! But ...

Is there no one else?! :-)

That is right, but, Triton can also be a class of mermaid-like creatures. Just a funny thing that came to my mind when I started playing this game LOL.

Indeed, and if we really get picky, then Triton may also be:

  • the nucleus of a tritium atom or ...
  • a Neptune moon

(see "Triton" in Oxford Dictionary, which interestingly, doesn't include the "Mermaid" definition, although by definition Triton was a merman :-)

I'm now off to work with my newly gained knowledge, which I will surely never again be able to use in any situation :-).

Certainly not, but what way would I have of telling? ;-) ... unless of course, you confess :-)

Four days to go!

To the top three players on Aug. 1st:

Don't forget to PM me player name (if not identical to your forum name), server and your city coordinates so I can organise the payout.

Good luck all!
