  1. Round 5: Jojen Reed Acronyms: IKGFT MWVLSF EFBVUUN Last round's letters looked hard to me but this round they look fun.
  2. It looks like a free shadow didn’t want to play after all, Castellan dominates back to back rounds, and, in my opinion, Gabe was robbed this round but I don’t have a vote. Round 3 Results: 1. "Princess..." conjurer prompted, "Go East!" (rocksniffer) 1+1+3=5 2. Brazenly voices nonsensicalities - grievous brain harm (Dolorous Gabe) 1+1+1=3 3. Your prophecies bring questions. NEVER. ENDING. QUESTIONS!!! (Castellan) 1+1+3+2+3+3+3+4=20 4. Profile covered. Prophecies given. Enemy? (Ser Not Appearing) 1+1+1+2+1+2=8 5. Pardon? Cryptic prognostications. Go east? (Jez Bell) 1+1+1+2+2+2=9 6. Your phantasm bewildered queen - North? East? Quandary! (Fragile Bird) 1+1+3+1+1=7 7. Bespoke veil never guarantees bonafide herald. (RhaenysBee) 1+1+2+3+1=8 Standings: Castellan 28 + 20 = 48 Ser Not Appearing 25 + 8 =33 Jez Bell 20 + 9 = 29 Fragile Bird 21 + 7 = 28 RhaenysBee 13 + 8 = 21 Eternally_His 11 Dolorous Gabe 7 + 3 = 10 rocksniffer 1 + 5 = 6 a free shadow 1

  9. I screwed up, there's a player who hasn't submitted an entry or voted this round and I missed it. I just sent him a PM, I'm going to give him some time to reply.
  10. There's one player that hasn't voted yet, I've sent them a PM. Everyone has submitted entries but several of you haven't told me what your final entry is. Once I have all of your final entries and rockniffer's votes I'll post the results.

  12. Round 3: Quaithe Acronyms: PCPGE BVNGBH YPBQNEQ Deadline: Try to get me your responses and votes by next Friday, 10/14/2022, at 5:00 PM EST. If you want an extension, ask. I swear to you, I am using a random number generator to come up with these letters and I am not trying to be cruel. Good luck this round.
  13. Round 1 Results: 1. Murderous, jabbering after jinxed royal nobble. (Ser Not Appearing) 1+1+3+1+3+3+4 = 16 2. Warlock and sorcerer. Verily blue. (Eternally_His) 1+1+1+1 = 4 3. Weeps a shade vengeful blue (Dolorous Gabe) 1+1+1+1 = 4 4. Warlock? Arson survivor? Vaguely blue? (RhaenysBee) 1+1+2 = 4 5. Warlock attempted sorrowful vengeance. Boohoo. (Jez Bell) 1+1+2+2+2+2+2 = 12 6. Mostly just a jaundiced, repulsive necromancer. (Fragile Bird) 1+1+1+3+3+2 =11 7. Marine journey appalling. “Joined” repugnant navy. (Castellan) 1+1+3+3+1 = 9 Ser Not Appearing, despite his complaints, won the round. Almost everyone thought Jez’s entry was second. I was happy to see that everyone gave their first place votes to players who tried to tackle the brutal MJAJRN letters. Standings: Ser Not Appearing 16 Jez Bell 12 Fragile Bird 11 Castellan 9 Eternally_His 4 Dolorous Gabe 4 RhaenysBee 4 Please check my math, I may have made an error. I’ll post the Round 3 letters shortly, but you have until noon EST tomorrow to finalize your round 2 entries.
  14. I've had a request for a modest extension. You have until noon EST 10/7/2022 to make changes. If you need more time than that let me know.
  15. It is, but the letters this round are easy.
  16. Round 2: Brynden Rivers “Lord Bloodraven” Acronyms: MTPOL QBHGWC RCLRGIF Deadline: Please try to vote for the round 1 entries and send me your round 2 entries by 5:00PM EST next Thursday.
  17. The game is live. Round 1 Entries: 1. Murderous, jabbering after jinxed royal nobble. 2. Warlock and sorcerer. Verily blue. 3. Weeps a shade vengeful blue 4. Warlock? Arson survivor? Vaguely blue? 5. Warlock attempted sorrowful vengeance. Boohoo. 6. Mostly just a jaundiced, repulsive necromancer. 7. Marine journey appalling. “Joined” repugnant navy. Vote for your top 3.
  18. I've got entries from everybody who said they're interested in playing, but two of you have sent me multiple entries without telling me your preference (I've sent them PMs). I hope to start working on the posts with this round's entries and next round's letters around 5:00 PM EST tomorrow (Thursday 9/29/22), feel free to make changes to your entries until then and let me know if you need more time. Good luck to you all
  19. I hope to get the entries to you by Thursday evening EST. I've received PMs from 5 of you and potential entries from 2. @Eternally_His and @RhaenysBee, it would help if you sent me a PM. This has been a brutal round and all but one of you is struggling so don't let it get to you, sometimes the letters are just cruel. If anyone can teach me how to use usernames that send notifications to the user in normal post please let me know, I haven't been able to figure it out ( I mean like this @Dolorous Gabe).
  20. Round 1: Pyat Pree Acronyms: ISK WASVB MJAJRN Deadline: Please try to get your entries in by Monday September 26th. If you want an extension please let me know. For those of you who already haven’t done so, please send me your entry in a personal message with your username (thanks Gabe, Jez, and Ser). Also, I recognize brutal letters when I see them, if anyone can pull off a great entry for MJAJRN I will be in awe. Eternally_His, I think this is the first time you’ve played the game so if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
  21. You can join. We aren't starting the first round until next week.
  22. Gabe, you've got your marching orders. I'll try to get everyone the topic and letters next week. I hope to run one round a week. Also, if everyone includes "acrophobia" and their user names in the subject line of their messages with their first round entries I'd appreciate it.
  23. That's five, we need one more. Gabe, if you want to try talking Ser into playing now's the time. Once we have six players I'll wait about a week before starting the first round to see if we can get one or two more players.
  24. That's 3, 3 to go. If anyone has sent me a message I haven't received it.
  25. If I can get at least six players I would like to run a game of Acrophobia. I think this would be game 43, if that's wrong please correct me. The theme would be magic users. For these of you who haven't played these are the rules: each round I will give the name of a magic user and one or more sets of letters. You create a an answer as if the set of letters were an acronym. So, for example, if the letters were IPRAF and the theme was Jojen paste you could enter "Ingredients: pureed Reed, acorns, flower." After that, the other players vote on entries that are still anonymous and that's how you score points. At the end of seven rounds the player with the most points wins. Please send your creation to me in a private message - send me a private message thread entitled "Acrophobia #42: [insert your board name here]" Keep using this PM to send subsequent entries. Scoring You vote for your favorite three entries in order of preference. 1st place is worth 3 points 2nd place is worth 2 points 3rd place is worth 1 point You will receive a point for creating an entry and a point for voting. The player with the highest number of 1st place votes will gain an extra 3 points, 2 points each if there is tie @a free shadow @Jez Bell @Count Balerion @Dolorous Gabe @Ser Not Appearing @RhaenysBee
