    Pretty much. If you have a clever use of a proper noun that isn't just making it too easy, it might be accepted. In a way the major restrictions make more sense in rounds with author points for correct guesses.

    Acrophilia #20: Breakers of Chains

    ROUND ONE We're going to kick off with a classic, old school round of Acrophilia to get back into the swing of it. The theme is relatively straight-forward, so there will be no author points in this round for others guessing your clue. As such, I will be strict on the level of relevancy that your clues have to the given character and if we miss an obvious alternative I will have to state that the answer is not the obvious alternative on the thread. Do bear in mind that there will be a vote for favourite clues at the end of the round though, so do try to be creative and interesting! You will receive a prelim in this round but it will not include a theme guess. So once you are happy with your answers, send me your list and I will tell you how many are correct but not which ones before you submit your final answers. Acronyms (choose one from the following) F R N R B O P D Q I C B A E W I will send you your characters in private messages shortly. Keep them secret. The deadline will be a week from now - Wednesday 29th January at 8pm UK time (GMT)

    I think yours was arguably the unluckiest of the Harrenhal round, fwiw.

    I may have accidentally killed shadow...... Which conversely means I lost our lifelong battle!

    I found Harrenhal incredibly difficult as an assignment and to vote on. Everyone took such different and interesting approaches.

    It's all from ASoIaF, buddy. As a general rule a host will only use historical characters that have a direct influence on ASoIaF, so for example the Mad King and Rhaegar are generally fair game. It is generally agreed that anyone more associated with D&E or other pre-ASoIaF stories requires a disclaimer before the round.

    Yep, tag anyone you'd like to invite. I suppose SNA might be best contactable via facebook. I am waiting for Jez to see this since she and Sniffer were the ones who requested a new game. Here's hoping she's okay. Shall we just do this game individually? Then you can all just send me a PM (entitled "Acrophilia 20: [insert board name here]" and I don't have to coordinate group PM threads. If anyone particularly wants to play in pairs, speak type now!

    Sorry, I usually focus on creating something before voting but I'm finding the KL assignment very tricky indeed. With so many letters I struggle to find a place to start.
