It does say in the OP that "the gods respond only to yes-no questions"...(paragraph 2, 4th sentence)

Women are definitely stronger. We are [Fe]males, after all...

Some of what makes me me is real, some of what makes me me is imaginary...I guess I'm just complex. ;P

ThunderCloud, you don't specifically limit our questions to be of the Yes/No variety, but it seems implied?

 

If I understand your question correctly: the gods of Truth and Lies will not respond to questions for which an appropriate answer is neither "Yes" nor "No." The "god of Randomness" will answer any question with a "Yes" or "No" response. :)

Yeah deciphering is not necessary, but it makes it mentally easier for me, at least, lol, to keep track of, and somehow I feel more accomplished for getting an extra piece of information ;P.

 

Check out the puzzle I linked...the setup there (where True and Lie can also answer any yes-no question...they are omniscient apparently about Random's answers) disallows you to know which word stands for which, since there were only two possible answers.  In these puzzles 8 possible arrangements of True/Lie/Random, so 2^3=8 will resolve which arrangement with no information to spare.  This puzzle there are three potential answers: a word, a word that is different than the previous word, and lack of an answer, so there is more possible information gained.

 

Nice puzzle tho, it was fun, thanks  ^_^.

I will take a look at it, thanks. Glad you enjoyed the problem. :) Btw, I only count 6 possible arrangements for True/Lie/Random (3!) ...?
