I know this has likely been answered previously, but is research allowed?

Short answer: Yes

Long Answer: Well, the reason I didn't specifically specify (is that redundant?) that research is allowed is that, unlike the Memory Contest, I didn't write the questions assuming everyone would research and there are a couple questions (2 or 3) that could be found quite easily with a little internet research. That being said, they are quite challenging so, if you know the episode something's found in and want to listen to it, that's completely allowed, as is other (internet, official guides, etc.) research.

I checked this just in time! :shock:

But I'm confused on one KBT:
24. Which category includes a cave, a palace and two cities?
category?
(Don't comment if it gives away the answer, maybe I just missed something.)

Let's see... how can I put this without giving it away...? They're all examples of a type of... thing... in the world of Odyssey. That's all I'll say. This one is very tricky. It's really more like a riddle than a trivia question so, you have to give it some thought. It's not impossible, though, because at least one person has answered it correctly. Hope that helps. :)

That much I gathered :P
I'll think it over.
Regardless of if I get it or not, I will have some others to submit tomorrow. :)

Edit:
It just hit me out of the blue!
(I don't know the answer yet, but I mean I think I understand the question now.)
