Seems unfair that Ser Not Appearing, Raisin' Bran and Ser Not Appearing get to play in a triad.

But then I realise that means Raisin' Bran is really playing on his own.

1.       Healthy ambition serves famous brother's ocular deficiency. /Euron (SWMBO)

2.       Her abilities sparked following beloved's obstinate demise./Daenerys (rocksniffer)

3.       Heroics amid storm forgotten. Building occupancy denied./ Stannis (Ser) +1

4.       Hails augury. Speculates 'foundlings born of death?'/ Jory (Castellan) +1

5.       Hasty and sadly founded betrothal occasioned deaths./ Robb (redriver)

6.       Handmaid’s adamant: swinging flail beats oversized doofus!/ Irri (Jez Bell) +1

7.       Hating austral security, babe offered dagger./ Val (Ser/Raisin' Bran)

8.       Robustly denies instructing nunciative, winged cousin./ Sam (Julia H.) +4

9.       Helm alar sits flightless, bonds of dwelling./ Jason Mallister (Dolorous Gabe) +1

10.     Horny admirer selects flowers. Outcome? Death./ Chett (Fragile Bird) +2

The results are:

1. Julia H. and redriver  21

2. Castellan and Jez Bell 18

5. rocksniffer and Dolorous Gabe 15

4. She Who Must Be Obeyed and Fragile Bird 14

3. Raisin Bran and Ser Not Appearing 13

All favorite votes are cast aside, because it is only my vote that matters. :ninja: It went in favor of Julia's clue for Sam, although Jason Mallister clue was a runner up in getting a couple more votes, and Irri clue was also near another vote :ninja: 

If you are yet (not) working on your new clues, go ahead and make the best clue :ninja: And stop insisting on being vague :pirate: 

The waters of Nile are running till Tuesday, and then it'll decide what to do.

Good luck :ninja:

I voted for the Sam clue but I consider the Irri clue and the Jory clue to also be of exceptional quality!

The overall standard was very good.

Round two?

Sniffer, mine's the Tom Waits For No One by Good Robot.

I'm not even joking, if any of you wonderful Stateside people can find this beer and get it to me in perfect condition I will pay handsomely.

Actually, also if anyone knows how to source the Game of Thrones inspired beers by Ommegang brewery, Cooperstown NY that would be good information.

Two scoops has twice the raisins of most cereals, however. So it works out.

Yep I got what I deserved with the Robb clue- nul points,but it looks like my gifted partner has bailed me out!

No apologies for the "sadly founded" part but on reflection the overall clue fitted too many other characters as well.

Must do better!

If it makes you feel better, I too have been accused of mistakes. They were wrong. But they accused. Moral to the story:

Everyone thinks nobody is quite perfect.

not as much as you might believe.

Though we still seem to have a bit of the same issue that Julia and I did in the previous game.

@Dolorous Gabe See what I mean. Shadow credited Ser alone on his clue, while mine is a "collaboration". Ser really was the one to do it, though.

Good Robot is a Halifax, Nova Scotia beer. It does not seem to be sold in Ontario, sadly. Perhaps they will ship to you?

My experience in this area is that you have to use specialist beer traders to do such things for you and even then sometimes they simply can't source the beer you're looking for, for whatever reason.

Guess I'll just have to visit Halifax, Nova Scotia and find the brewery.

DEAD END

Ten clues washed up by the Nile, and three million unused blueberries :ninja: Anybody can loose!

 

1. Given honor over wives - repercussions unavoidable.

2. Boy burying idyllic age, developing form.

3. Backhand belittles infatuation: adolescent duelling fail.

...

4. ‘Big-headed bubba is adorable diddums’ – female.

5. Bared breast in a daring fashion.

6. Blatantly beggared incautiously accepting darling's flamboyance.

7. Began boldly. Insulted ally. Dramatically fatal.

...

8. Boreal baron's icy attention damns forswearers.

9. Bored brat, ironed and divinely frocked.

10. “Girls happily offload wool, rehydrate undressed.”

 

The entire decade of the clues fits the same theme, and each smaller group fits a different ridge of it. I think the weakest small group is the third, so you might want to focus on it first start with the others :ninja: 

In looking for one or more answers this round you might have to slightly swim into the theory/presumption, but only so little that it is not even  interesting.

And I can tell you for ten boar feathers only that the answer to clue 5 is not Nissa Nissa :ninja: 

It will end in seven bakery mornings, April 25th :ninja: 

There will be no part three :ninja:
