    acrophilia theme registry...redux

    more of @yomi's great work A first idea for sorting the themes... it certainly needs more work: Family relations: Youngest sibling / youngest child Characters who are theorized to have Targaryen blood Characters who fathered at least one daughter Characters with (known) Targaryen ancestry Relatives of Kingsguards Characters' actions: Wedded during the course of the ASOIF books Served or helped a major POV character Have knowingly hidden or concealed their real identity at some point Sailed the Narrow Sea Characters who had consensual, extramarital sex Characters who said "Words are wind" Miscellaneous: Baldness / characters described at some points as either bald or balding Dead characters Essosi origin Characters who have nicknames that start with the word "The" Characters who are hated by fans The first letters of the characters' first names formed the words 'North remembers' Characters who have a namesake in the Frey family Characters appearing in the prologues Children born 290 AC and later Characters with broken betrothals and some of my own words... here are the stats you need to make it easy for you... Themes: Characters called "sweetling" on page. Women who appear naked on page for reasons other than sex. Characters that share a drink with Tyrion on page. Character above spoke to character below, on page, about their own or another's penis. Men that were known to visit Chataya's Brothel. Lucky 13 Host: Sniffer, King of the Debauched Length: 5 rounds Scoring: 3 points for correct answer. 5 points for correct round-theme guess with graduated points for closeness. 1 author point for each correct guess of your clue. Each favorite vote for your clue is also worth 1 point. Bonuses: 5 points for speed and accuracy, 5 points for figuring out "uber" game-theme. Winner: Fragile Bird hope this what you need...this registry is valuable to my ability to brilliantly solve these clues and themes... well the registry is brilliant anyway
