This is the 4th book characters guessing game, after Syseanne's great idea for the first one and KhaleesiDany's and Franz95's sequels, of which the latter is known for the infamous Wymangate episode.
After defining our most loved and hated characters, as well as the sexiest, I am now asking you for the biggest badasses in the World of Ice and Fire. Although Asha Greyjoy won that title already (and deserved it, in my opinion ) in the Elimination Game, quite a lot of you were disappointed by this result. Now you've got the chance to see your preferred characters higher in the ranking.
Here is how it will work: right now my clock says it's Monday, December 10th and it is 5:00 PM. After you read this post, you have a week to send me a private message including a list of your Top 20 Most Badass Characters in our beloved universe of Ice and Fire. People who were dead at the beginning of ASoIaF are allowed. And I guess you can include animals as well, if you want.
When my clock says it's Monday, December 17th and it is 5:00 PM, submissions will be closed.
Later on, you can play even if you did not submit a list, and you can submit a list even if you don't want to play. If I don't have 10 lists by Monday, we will let this slowly die away...
Then I will start ranking your choices: if a character is #1 in your list, then I'll give him/her 20 points, 19 for the second, 18 for the third and so on until the 20th who will get 1 point. You will have to guess the Top 20 of the list. As soon as I can I will post the honorable mentions (positions 21-25 of the list) and the first hint (this will probably be on Tuesday afternoon/evening, because I have my history exam on that day and I won't be able to count the points earlier).
If you didn't take part in the other games, you may want to know how the guessing and the point system work, so let me explain: after I post the hint, you have about two days to guess 1 or 3 characters. If you have guessed only one and it is correct, you get 5 points. If you have guessed 3 characters you get 3 points if your first guess is right, 2 if the second is right, only 1 if the third of your guesses is right.
Here is an example:
Jaime: Freddie Mercury
1. Freddie Mercury
3. Josif Stalin
Cersei: Salvador Dalì
Now, if the answer is Freddie Mercury Jaime gets 5 points, Tyrion gets 3 and Cersei gets none. If it is Mario, Tyrion will have 2 points. If it is Stalin, Tyrion will have one point, and if it is Dalì, Cersei will get 5 points.
Ok, I believe I have told you everything I was supposed to tell you. Now it's up to you to decide on your Most Badass Characters.
If you have any questions, ask!
Oh, one last thing: Please no further episodes like the Wymangate. No Samwell Tarly on these lists! Ortherwise I'll make up some extra mean punishment.
