#16 - a shadow of a game

92 posts in this topic

I got all correct but one very quickly before disappearing to the Land of Fire and Ice. I considered and dismissed the possibility of Robert being the answer to 7. Had I got the theme I may have guessed it despite my issues.

 

As per my obligation:

 

For Raisin Bran

For Ser Not Appearing

For Fragile Bird

For myself

For rocksniffer

For Castellan

For Julia H.

And of course, for a free shadow

Here is the last test :ninja:


1. Conversationally wanting orphan pursues detective.
2. Larger and neatly revealed form crowns.
3. Loved alternate northerner, really! Fiercely committed.
4. Churlish wench overcomes prisoner's disdain.
5. Loathsome a necklace, renal fluid consumed.
6. Clandestine webbing of portly deceptions.
7. Liability, as naturally resembles father. Chased.

Some of the clues I like very much! Except those that I have written parts of :ninja: I did it, because I do not think it would have been fair to others, to give them as they were. But I tried very much to keep to the idea of the clue, like it was given :ninja:


Bad luck to your competitors!


The wars will end on the 28th :ninja:

I thought Robert for the cuckoldee too. Then I thought only I would think of him for that and changed to Lancel. I thought he 'flunked obligation; much more completely. I rationalised dallying can just mean loitering as well as fooling around.

Plenty to chew on in this round.

The clue for Rhaego was pretty well done. Shame I had no idea who that was for, else it would have gotten my fav vote.

Thanks to those who voted for my clue! Also thanks to @Dolorous Gabe for the ice cream! (White Walker? Hm... It must be super cold.)

I also thought that the clue could fit Lancel as well, but I regarded Robert as more likely.

I appreciate the hindsight-benefitted tribute :)

I did not know it could mean fooling around. I took it to mean inactivity.

Update: Nobody has guessed the theme of the third round yet! :ninja:

I know, it is my fault. It did not feel like a fully right clue, but I ended up taking it. But that is why I made a clarification that it refers to the -ee, not the-er. Was it not helpful?

You were the hardest to find a somewhat fitting ice cream for. I concluded that as the Shepherd of Wolf Pups you might like eating white walkers :dunno:

Jaime cuckolded Robert and whoever Amerei is having sex with (I think someone specific is implied at the dinner at Darry) has cuckolded Lancel. So they are both -ees. .

Anyway enough of that I am struggling with round 3 now and I myself can't seem to write any clues that present a challenge at all.

I have a feeling my clue this round could present a challenge, but shadow ninja'd it to make it both easier and more artfully done. It's a very good clue now, imo.
