So I've been planning on making this thread for quite awhile now, since 2012 as I recall, but as always, I procrastinated. Anywho, no, this is not a copy of Name That Song, I was taught this game in "The Real World" and played it there.

So here's how it works, someone, me to start, thinks of a dead person who must be famous. To avoid as much spam as possible, gives off certain details about him/her from the start. After that, everyone will try to guess who said dead guy is whilst asking 'yes' or 'no' questions about him. It would be preffered, so as to avoid spam, that unless you have a rather unique question, or are guessing the identity of the dead guy, that you ask more than one question per post.

E.G.
Person 1: I'm thinking of a dead male, caucasion with black hair
Person 2: did he did within the last 5 years and was a singer?
Person 1: Yes to both.
Person 2: Micheal Jackson.
Person 1: Yes. Chose your dead guy.

I'm going to start off with a dead caucasion male, black hair, was known for being on television and without further questioning I will go into no more details on what area of television.

Ask and guess away.

*huddles over to pang and whispers in his ear* "Remember, it can be any famous person, it doesn't need to be in music, make this one that no-one will guess."

Depends on your viewpoints of it. Though, mostly viewed in quite the positive light.

Is it Pang Tong?


I'd hardly be so obvious

Did he work for the Shu kingdom?


Nope

Fictional


Nope

Was he well revered?


Highly

Was he religious?


I would imagine so.
But it doesn't really matter.

Did he live after the birth of Christ?


No

Did he live during the time of the roman empire (when it was unified)?


Doesn't seem so..from the dates I'm seeing

Somewhat. Can't find examples of him being an actual teacher, per se..but he did teach a good number of things

Aristotle?
Plato?
Socrates?


Ew..no

Keep in mind..he is much more known for other things than his philosophy. Not saying them, though, because that'd give it away

Augustine of Hippo?


These people lived after Christ was born.

I would guess...Cicero. Aurelius came to mind as he wasn't known for his philosophy in his day, but he was born after Christ, and he didn't teach.

I can only find like one thing connecting his most famous work to legalism..and the source barely does so, from what it seems.

It matters not in finding out who he is, though.

Was the guy around during the Qin or Han dynasty eras?


Like I said..he was around some time before 500BCE
