The main sites, the KRA Week 2012 and the scavenger hunt.
♕ Servetus – Me+Richard Armitage ♕
To all fans of Mr. Armitage, I need not introduce Servetus and her blog Me+Richard Armitage.
Her witty, thoughtful and thought-provoking articles, comments and examinations of fandom in all varieties and forms, is such an entertaining and addictive read that (Psst…, I must reveal it, I just can’t keep it a secret) she had 1.000.000 hits on her blog lately. If that is not a reason to celebRAte, especially during the KRA Week?
CongRAtulations, Servetus !
She posts about King Richard III and Richard Armitage each day of the event week, varying from historic to funny.
We have linked to her posts in the daily news (and I must give you a further recommendation – watch out for her tips to solve the scavenger hunt questions!):
Day 5 Quiz Tips
As creator of these wonderful quiz questions, she is allowed to do that. So Servetus is not only our blogger of the day, but also our quizmaster of the KRA Week 2012.
Her questions are tough, but a real champion can’t be determined by too easy questions, can he/she?
As I check the incoming results, I can further reveal, we have some who are on a really good way to become our KRA Champion 2012 !
And should I also reveal a bit about our price for the Champion? – As the final form depends a bit on the choice of the winner, we had not posted images of the price so far. We wanted to make it a badge of honour, the name of the winner will be added to one of the images on the side and the image put on a magnet, button or T-shirt, so the winner can choose what he/she prefers as a price and where best to show his/her championship.

She recomments how best to Spend our Money! ?
Servetus’ analysis of a KRA-fangirl’s mind is one further example of her exceptional examinations! – Richard III won’t make me squee. Right?
And I must also reveal, Servetus gives tips and hints in her latest post to help with solving the quiz questions, so a look at all her latest posts is quite helpful, if you need tips for the scavenger hunt.
