Friendly Thursday Challenger: Som



Forget tomorrow
Only now is important
Do not ask me more


Som is a diligent worker, and you would generally not find much to complain about. She has such a way with customers, acting in the moment with them and seeming to care deeply about their current needs. She has an eccentric way of speaking, she really does like a haiku! But you find yourself quite charmed by it, and make a visit simply to hear her poetry. When does a poem by Som not brighten your day?

You're not sure about her history, she doesn't seem to bring it up now that you think about it. You've maybe asked about her plans for the future, but she always brings the subject back to you! Did her eyes all flash red when you asked? You're not sure you remember correctly. Maybe you should try again? I'm sure she isn't going to get angry and be unlocked as a new challenger. Not unless you do something to REALLY set her off.

I really wish these opponents would drop weapons on the 5th win... since the donation presents don't contain any anymore would really like to see new weapons dropped by the challengers released this way and the cash shop ones. My weapon gallery is always hungry for more...:P

Thanks for the help everyone ^^ I had been discouraged for the past few challengers, still not sure how to unlock them.

Yes that worked. I already had tried with candle and time items in inventory. But I had items with those names in my wardrobe so just put them on long enough to visit. ;)

I don't know how to make a spoiler tag, but I will say that mine was about as ridiculous, too. *chuckles*

What Jess said. I know the comment Weasel is talking about, but that was more Amber hoping to make one that took a little longer to figure out one day.
0

Jess

@Weasel No, there's no wait period. You can share it as soon as you figure it out.
0

Weasel

@Jess - Yeah, would definitely be putting anything in a spoiler. To be honest, thinking about it now and realising the challenger isn't 24 hours old yet, I'm slightly wary of giving possible solutions that soon. Could have sworn staff asked people to wait a few days on a previous challenger, or am I just imagining things?

@Weasel
Yep, you can share the solution or what you think you did! Just make sure to put it in a spoiler tag :)

Yeah, I managed to unlock them after noticing the other user's HA items, nice easy challenger for those of us with weedier pets.

Stats

I've got a pretty good idea of what might have unlocked it, can I share spoilers or is there a unwritten rule on leaving it X amount of time before giving a solution?

Is Lukien still available as a challenger, or is he closed now that Som is available?

The present is important, she doesn't want to talk about the future and we know nothing of her past. Yet somehow I can't help but going back to the haiku part. Is there a way for us to mess around with haiku's?

maybe we have to ask her something over and over again like we aren't listening which would make her angry enough to challenge you .... she will lose her patience then and maybe challenge us

Duane

in time all things will come to those who wait ... so be patient and in time she will get mad and then when you buy something she will finally challenge you ... just a guess is all

I like that I learned a bit about Som but I want to know her story so you guys should put her in the npc shopkeepers list.

It's nice they're bringing attention to shops/keepers that don't get much attention, but just wondering when the fabric shop in the same market will get some love. There hasn't been any new clothing items or colors for ages.

StarShadow

It's the same with items with "remember" in the name, all CWs.

In her store she mentions having Patience, but the only items with the word "patience" are CWs... Hmmm....

@Monsoon Thanks! :) It shows how often I've visited that shop!! :D

@extremist @Sue - Five Seven Five is the shop she oversees. Chocolate linked it in the fourth post made (so fourth from the bottom here). :)

Sue

@extremist Yes, I was thinking a game too...score over 575..."try again" could be keep trying until you reach 575. "You're not sure you remember correctly"... could be a memory game.

Five seven five that does ring a bell....
Was that a shop name? Or a game?

@Rocket-Dive

That's the syllable count of a haiku.

Rocket-Dive

I don't know if this helps one way or another, but when you're on her shop page, and look at the tab name, it says 'five seven five'. Do those numbers ring a bell to anyone?

Tried with 5 different clock items in inventory with no luck.

MarissaUnderground

Let me guess, she is afraid of the future and traumatized by the past. To unlock her would have to involve something involving either, the question is, what and how.

Thanks. Figured she might be in that area but just didn't see her.
Hope someone figures out the unlock soon.
Waited so long to unlock Lukien but none of my pets can defeat him.

until i know her stats, i don't know if i will be able to take a rumble or not (tbh i am pretty sure i won't & anyways confession time, i'd rather hug than fight sue me lololl)
BUT!! i just wanted to take a second to scream: from the bottom of my ♥️ THANK YOU SO SO MUCH STAFF for the drops!!!!
ever since she came out, i asked a couple of times for items to "cosplay" her, since she is one of the most well done characs on site
it is so heartwarming to witness most of my suggestions come to life in the past 3 years since i joined -- i mean truly a game where users are taken into consideration is just YASSSSSS so good

@Xezvi - funnily enough, this did come up when we were talking about her as a challenger. We feel that she is actually nonbinary, but is fine with feminine pronouns. Sometimes she will have masculine days. It's not a big enough part of what this particular post is about, though, to go into it. Or rather, she's not open about things that aren't happening today. But your comment made us smile!

Glad to know Som's gender. I remember when her shop first opened, a lot of us were debating whether she was a girl or a boy or neither.

If she's scared of the future, then I imagine you'll need an item related to fortune telling?
