  1. Acrophobia 28: Lomas Longstrider's notes - Round One

    First: 2. Heritage in magic. Ice blocks luminously “weep”. Dazzling. (I like the use of weep) Second: 6. Has it's moments. It's big. Largely without delights. Third: 5. How immense! ..magic inside?...bellowing?...loud winds...dramatic! (Lomas Longstrider was Brick Tamland in another life. LOUD NOISES!!!)
  2. Be as unhelpful as possible 2.to

    Because Westeros' nobility are morally bankrupt. Awww, that was helpful. What would be the outcome if Dunk had not attended the Tourney at Ashford?

    I vote yes. The activity on the forum lately indicates to me that we likely wont get others to join.

    All boys are secretly named Aegon. Among the Stark's household servants, who is the luckiest?

    Maybe a little longer than the time it is taking GRRM to write TWoW. How is it that only life can pay for life?

    I wanted the theme of the acros to coincide with the first sentence spoken by the POV character in their first point of view chapter. But I was foiled when I realized Dany's first sentence in chapter 3 of AGoT was four words long, two of which began with the letter I. "Is it really mine?" So I went with the sentence that was in the closest proximity to Jaime's. And there are too many sentences that begin with I. @Dolorous Gabe your idea sounds interesting, though I am unsure how it would play out.

I L S T P T I O T D “It looks smaller, though perhaps that is only the distance.” (ACoK, Chapter 11, Theon I) 5. I H G W F M T R M F C “If His Grace wishes for me to remove myself from court…” (ADwD, Chapter 55, The Queensguard [Barristan I]) M U I W H B “My uncle is with his books?” (AFfC, Chapter 11, The Kraken’s Daughter [Asha I]) 6. I W E M W S T T K T D A R “I want every man who sees them to know the dragons are returned.” (ACok, Chapter 63, Daenerys V) Y T M W A A L W N G E “You’d think my word as a Lannister was not good enough.” (ASoS, Chapter 1, Jaime I)

But despite the round 6 win, the game's crown goes to Dolorous Gabe, who submitted an entry where Jaime even goes as far as to provide Daenerys with counsel, something Jaime's sister would never accept. This game could have gone any number of ways. Congratulations to you all!!! The following table shows the running score of the game by round.

It was a load of fun being your host. We lost a couple along the way, but despite only having 5 entries for the final round, we still got 7 players voting. I would consider my first attempt at hosting a success overall. But the success can only be attributed to the enthusiasm you continue to have for the game.
