Acrophobia 26: Bridge the Gap - ROUND 8/9

Recommended Posts

 

 

 

1st.   3.       Begin immediately to organize realm. Leave oenomania!

2nd.  5.       Basking in triumph or rescuing Lyanna...objective?

3rd.   6.       Being irrational torments others..recommend looking out..

 

Did anyone else have problems trying to highlight answers?  Something appears to be weird about the formatting.  Or is it just me for some reason?  Or is it Westeros?  I know I have a hell of a time quoting.

9-10. delspark, Dolorous Gabe  3

In a first round with lots of strong entries, the incontestable victor is Howlin' Howland, who has won a sweeping victory after composing a wise eye-opener that would make it worthwhile for Orys to come back from the afterlife and get in touch with his descendant. The runners-up are rocksniffer and Destiel's Child, who are at the moment lagging behind (despite their wonderful entries), but who knows what the future holds? There are nine more rounds coming up, so anything is possible yet, and the new round is just about to begin.

There are only 8 entries at the moment. If you haven't sent one yet, you can still do so (late entries are accepted). One player sent an entry that changed two of the letters of the acronym, therefore I couldn't accept it. Another player changed one letter of the acronym. I notified the players in PM's. So, if you think you have sent an entry but can't see it here, please, check your PM's. 

P.S. Entry problems fixed.

Please, vote for three entries.

The deadline for voting is 6 p.m. Central European Time on Saturday, November 19th.

ROUND 3 

Tyrion Lannister has just killed Tywin Lannister. At the moment, he is hiding on a boat, en route to Essos, drinking huge amounts of wine and contemplating his future, which does not look bright. It is in this state that he glimpses a scroll so small that he probably would never have noticed it had it not been in a singularly strange place: at the bottom of the wine cask he has just emptied. He unrolls it almost automatically. The letters dance in front of his eyes as he is reading (with a pounding head) a mysterious message addressed to him. He barely understands the words, and eventually the scroll slips out of his hand and he falls into a drunken slumber. When he wakes up, he cannot find the scroll anywhere, but he very clearly remembers the words of the strange message, as well as the signature at the end of it: Your Lady Mother, Joanna Lannister.

What message did Joanna Lannister send from the afterlife to her youngest child, Tyrion Lannister, at this critical moment of his life?

Your acronym:

K I S O C S I

Your deadline:

6 p.m. Central European Time on Saturday, November 19th.

Second: 10

Third: 2

Had to give a vote to 2, it did make me laugh.

Great standard this round, took me a long while to decide.

I'm taking the Sniffer's tactics and gunning for last place :P
