Default Tau Fluff Quiz

Hope this is alright with the mods- but this is a more fluff oriented quiz since Vash's was more or less a rules one.
Lets say 10 out of 10 is 2 Karma, 9/10 is 1 karma and the rest is a pat on the back. If we don't get the karma go ahead- just try your hand at some questions.

1. Name four Tau military tactics

2. Name five official Shas'O spearheading the Third Sphere advance.

3. Who was the Aun in charge of the Medusa V expedition

4. Name one Human world that is a member in the Tau Empire

5. Name one Human world that was given colonization rights to humans after the Lithesh War (As in, the Imperial Refugees from the Crusade were offered a chance to settle somewhere)

6. What is the Tau color for mourning?

7. How is the Tau'cyr divided, what is the significance of this division

8. What are some special issue gear given to Firewarrior teams (not XV)

9. How do Tau colonize planets- be specific in the phases of a Tau colony, are they the only colonizers, what happens if their is another species on a planet such as humans?

10. How many systems are in the Tau Empire?

Bonus Question:
Explain the significance of Airfield 6


Current Rankings: Due to some questions about clarity I've revised a few of the questions and reworded them- you can take another shot at them if you like. For example, question 9 was kind of a curve ball, there are two examples given in canonical fluff which should help answer it.

Doombringer: You got 1, (but your third example is questionable) 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and you got the Bonus Question! Very impressed: 10/10

Koril: You got 1, 3, 6, 7, 8 (well, i suppose)- 5/10, good attempt, hit the books!

Genmotty You got 1, 2, 3, 4 (don't use your own fluff), 5 (i would love it if you could send me the link to that Divag stuff) since i didn't know about this I'm going to let you have it but there is a definitive answer, 6, 7, 8, 9 (yes, your absolutely right!). 9/10

-the bonus question has to do with canonical sources.


Answers posting soon

Interresting, some stuff from Medusa and FW, I only know a handful of those without some hard research.

As for Karma the mods are discussing this, I wish you'd contacted me first but I think perhaps the top 10-20% of scores may get karma depending on results. The last round of quizes saw a massive ammount of karma get handed out and we want to set the standards a bit higher, but we'll see what the results are when the quize ends.

That's fine, though btw it would help if you kept the scores updated in the first post so I can figure out who gets karma at the end and award it.

Fine with me, but I think the complexity of your quiz kinda turned more than a couple of people off to it.

Too much work researching it all!
