Acrophobia 33 New experiences! Round 5

Recommended Posts

Anyone can join in at any time.

The theme is: "We drop you in it" and there will be five rounds.

Its a reality TV like idea - each round contestants are dropped into a new situation. For example, a night in fleabottom, a weekend at Highgarden, a month on the Quiet Isle. You may have a great time, find yourself out of your depth ... there is no end of possibilities. You report back using one of the acronyms provided. 

If you are a newbie here is a brief explanation - Each round you send an entry to me as a PM, do not post it in this thread. I will post everyone's entries in thread so they can be anonymous and then players vote in the thread for their three favourites and I tally the scores.

If you would like to play send me a PM.

So far we have

Raisin' Bran

Howlin' Howland

?Dolorous Gabe

SWMBO

Rocksniffer

Casablanca Birdie

?SNA

but we need more ... anyone up for it?

Five plus one part-timer (SNA) is probably enough to play (assuming DG is inspired!) although it would be more fun if we got more sign ups. I may give it another day for people to notice the game.

Do you know if Rocksniffer is still on other duties, @She who must be Obeyed @Casablanca Birdie ?

We drop you in it!

Round 1:

This shouldn't surprise anybody.

Your mission: a night in Flea bottom.

https://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Flea_Bottom

A discrete and tough companion escorts you to the middle of Flea bottom after dark then walks off and leaves you there, with no money. He will discretely come to find and retrieve you from the area in the early morning. What happened?

Your report can focus on observations of Flea bottom, your own experiences there, philosophical speculations it inspired ... wherever the experience takes your mind, in other words.

Please choose one of these 8 letter sequences to make your acronym.

I have five wonderful entries and am just waiting on SWMBO, who said she'd get it in this evening.

Round 1 entries. Vote for your favourite three.

1. Do rats infest less these grave lots overflowing?

2. Doodie rank in lazily tidied galleries. Loose orifices.

3. Drugs...really???  I loved the gambling.  Lacked opulence.

4. Drank...rutted...implored "ladies" to grant lusty overtures!

5. Demented, regrettable idea. To gallivant, look overseas...

6. Dangerous rogues, ignoble layabouts threatened gratuitous lawlessness, obviously.

PS Not everyone may have heard of 'doodie' but I think we can figure it out. Seems to be more often listed as 'doody' if you want to google it. 

Round 2: A job recruiter signed you up after seeing you stroll unharmed out of Flea bottom. Describe your week as an apprentice pyromancer!

https://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Alchemists%27_Guild

https://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/A_Clash_of_Kings-Chapter_20

Please remember there are serious risks involved and behave responsibly. And sign those waivers!

Your acronym choices:

First:      5. Demented, regrettable idea. To gallivant, look overseas...

Second: 4. Drank...rutted...implored "ladies" to grant lusty overtures!

Third:     3. Drugs...really???  I loved the gambling.  Lacked opulence.

 

I find it funny that everyone opted for the same acro for this round.
