This round’s theme is Favorite historical male character. By historical I mean people that were dead before the tourney at Harrenhal. Therefore the choices can be even form the age of Heroes but they should been dead by 281 AL.



The rules:

  • The game will begin when you PM me your top 20 lists under the name; ASOIAF Guessing Game version II AfU- Your board game. You should sent your lists until 25.11. 00:00 EET.
  • The Favorite historical male character you rank 1 - your absolute favorite historical male character will be given 25 points. After that the favorite historical male character in the list get 19, 18, 17 points, so on that the character theory you put down as your no 20 gets 1 point.
  • In every round (excluding top 5) you'll be given a hint to identify the historical male character. You can either gamble on a historical male character to obtain 5 points for a correct guess, or you can give three choices in order - and for the correct one you'll be getting three, two or one points respectively. We expect each round to last about 48 hours. If there's a tie, you will need to guess all the tied historical male character at once, getting 5 points for each one guessed right.
  • We can discuss scores for final 5 once we get there. :)
  • You can join in the guessing anytime, doesn't matter if you sent the list on or not. And if you sent it, you don't have to guess if you don't want to, it's totally fine. If I forgot something, let me know, and if you have some objections, write it down here.

That will make it four - perhaps the host can make a list, too (if she hasn't already done so), and that would make five lists.

Could you wait for a day or two more? I need to go through WOIAF again. I've forgotten some characters names and details.

Number 20; 

Oh my sweet summer child what do you know about heroes? Heroes are people who sacrifice themselves and their companions at a trip through the enemy’s lines as a desperate try to find the gods in order to help the humanity.

Someone could say that he is the Westerosi Tuor.
