Wow...

Anyways, notice the little black pawn at the bottom of each picture- is that how you figure out the order, perhaps?

You just have to move the king so that he is no longer checked. I just did it. You move to the letter that saves you.
In order from left to right ( ? means that i didn't know the letter):
? M ? F E T I R
the first ? should be G, but you would still be checked by the knight.
the second ? should be ! but you would still be checked by the bishop.
Then you take the square that the bottom pawn is on and count from the left. So you would get:
5 2 8 1 6 3 4 7
That's the order you put them in. so then you get "FMTIGER!" so protect him

Okay, well thanks for the protect... :oops: Don't make it a habit though. Why were you trying to kill me anyway, assassinator?

EDIT: Also, thank you assassinator for not disregarding that protect *cough cough*

I'm really liking these clues. They're not impossible to solve, but they do require some thinking. They're also very creative, and that makes them fun to solve. good job so far assassinator

When you completed the Knight's Tour, you got the message "That Z guy will die soon so you had better protect im quickly!" "Im", as mentioned above, was suposed to be "him".

Zyzzyva98 just barely avoided checkmate- can you avoid checkmate as well?

Woops... It looks like the pictures got all out of order! I trust that you can put them back in the correct order, right? I gave you enough information in each picture to figure it out.

Good luck!
Dude!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love doing these! Its where you try and checkmate the king in one move :P

EDIT: solutions: y, y
