Are the teams to be randomly assigned from whoever shows up, or do we pick teams (//bad memories of getting picked for teams for dodgeball start to surface)?

 Teams will be determined by the captains. So yeah, possibly more bad memories. But, I have heard that counseling works wonders.
 
 20 people shows up, there will be 20 rolls of the 1d100.
 
 20 people / 4 man teams = 5 captains (there will likely be some 3 man teams)
 The captains will pick one person at a time and will go in order.
 
 Captain 1 will pick a person, then captain 2 will pick a person and so forth.

To answer the questions, do we need to make lore checks? Intel checks? Or pretty much going on our own basic knowledge of what we know?

 You would only use checks if you want GM intervention. I'm not going to help with the answer :D

Oh! Everyone will be getting normal quest XP. Why? Because, knowing LORE is a huge part of our RP, the world, quests, etc. If you are learning as you play, you should get 'experience' for it.
 
 If a person dies or is out an hour into it, that PC will get teleported out and get an hours worth of Quest XP.
 
 Right answers...get a point and RP XP
 Wrong answers...gets to rock and roll, no RP XP.
