Rorschach Inkblot Test – Blackout
April 25, 2008 29 Comments
Our Rorschach Inkblot Test activities formally ended back in February. When the Legendary Map Pack was released (along with three corresponding heatmaps), I began getting requests to start them up again. Apparently people enjoyed analyzing their own and possibly even each other’s entertaining, often hilarious answers. I’m game if you’re game so for a limited time only the inkblot tests are back!
We never examined the answers from our last inkblot activity so that gives us a great place to start. Back on February 15th we used the global heatmap from Foundry which definitely sparked everybody’s imagination. Nick Manning was the first person to notice the resemblance to a face hugger from the Alien film series, and Twilight Ronin, nyota0uhura, wolfy, the other dark, and Nace all saw something disgustingly similar.
Gross. Seriously. Can you imagine? Thankfully Elnea came along shortly after the face hugger reference to distract us with this delightful gem. “Oh, that’s CLEARLY that scene in Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Los Ark where Indy and Marion are tied to a post and the angels of Death are whirling around them.”
Is there another answer that can beat that one? I think not (!) so let’s look at this week’s picture. Today’s Rorschach Inkblot Test image is everybody’s favorite old map but not everybody’s favorite new map. You guessed it, it’s Blackout (and yes, I’m bitter). So tell me, what do you see? Remember, extra nonexistent points for originality!
