  1. ROUND SIX ASSIGNMENT Tyrion's Escape The Spider helped him escape, right? That creepy, spindly foreigner who knows all the underground passages. Or was something else going on? How do the singers interpret this? And Tyrion is a monster, right? Regicide followed swiftly by patricide? What more is there to this story? Is there an alternative viewpoint? Is there a songwriter with other ideas? How did this happen? Use one of the following acronyms to create a song title for a minstrel of your choice B R H O M F A S R I T D M F E Tuesday 18th May at 10pm is the deadline

  7. ROUND FIVE ASSIGNMENT Wyman Manderly’s Revenge A bit of forecasting here, as we don’t know everything that happens yet, but a song could be written about numerous points during his revenge plot. It could tell the entire story from White Harbour’s machinations through to the gruesome revelations at Winterfell. From a future vantage point, how would a songster tell this story and from what perspective?

  11. ROUND FOUR ASSIGNMENT Mance Rayder and his forces attack the Wall, Stannis rides to overwhelm them. The people of Westeros don’t much care for the Night’s Watch these days. At war with each other, catering to this band of ruffians seems counter-productive. But of course Stannis bucked the trend. With Mance uniting his horde to take them south of the Wall away from the icy demons that haunt them, how would a song about this battle go? What perspective could be drawn from this event? Use one of the following acronyms to create a song title for a minstrel of your choice O W A M N T W O G K I C T L S Let’s make the initial deadline on Saturday 1st May at 10am UK time. So you have a week. New voting round coming at some point today. Just awaiting something.
