Which reminds me: @Dolorous Gabe Will you let us know at the end of the round which title you meant as the very high bar? 

I will.

Although it was more a collection of impressive options one player sent and I actually slightly preferred a mildly different variation of the one that was chosen. I'm sure that player will put them all on the Acrophobia Leftovers thread. I also very much liked the two I had already received from others, which contributed to my feeling that the bar was that high.

Plus, I should say that everyone responded very well to the challenge.

Got it. I'm still curious though :D

1. 4 Tasting Salt: Plotting Merry Deceptions

2. 6 Happily Ever Heh

3.  1 Tully’s Spit ‘Pon Me?! Die!!

 

This game emphasises to me the extreme folly of writing an autobiography in Westeros. Talk about rubbing salt in wounds...

ROUND 5 RESULTS

 

Sniffer’s votes (sent to me via messenger raven)

1st) 1

2nd) 4

3rd) 6

 

1 Tully’s Spit ‘Pon Me?! Die!!

honeyed chicken 1+1 +1+3+1+1+1+3+3 = 15

 

2 The Scarlet Payback: Marital Dissfunction

Jez Bell 1+1 +2+3+1 = 8

 

3 The Supercilious Pie: Making Dynasty 

RhaenysBee 1+1 = 2

 

4 Tasting Salt : Plotting Merry Deceptions

She Who Must Be Obeyed 1+1 +1+3+2+2 = 10

 

5 Fickle Wolves…Flowing Blood

rocksniffer 1+1 +2+3+2+3 = 12

 

6 Happily Ever Heh

Howlin’ Howland 1+1 +3+1+2+2+2+1 = 13

 

7 Faithless Weasel: Family’s Bastion

Raisin’ Bran 1+1 = 2

 

 

Jez Bell 52 + 8 = 60

rocksniffer 46 + 12 = 58

She Who Must Be Obeyed 36 + 10 = 46

RhaenysBee 43 + 2 = 45

Howlin’ Howland 26 + 13 = 39

Raisin’ Bran 31 + 2 = 33 / honeyed chicken 18 + 15 = 33

 

Fragile Bird  25

Castellan 1+1+1+1+1 = 5 (points for voting)

 

Well, the wonderful unpredictability of this game strikes again. The Gods are smiling upon honeyed chicken as he wins a very hard-fought round with a fittingly repulsive tirade against House Tully. Well done HC! Howlin’ Howland came in 2nd with his very snappy and smart title, followed closely by rocksniffer, SWMBO and Jez Bell, who scored just enough to keep a certain sniffin’ hound at bay. Two very fine titles went surprisingly pointless.

 

Please do check my tallies in case I made any whisky-induced mistakes.

I hope SWMBO doesn’t mind me posting this but she sent me these two titles:

TABLE SALT: Plotting Merry Deceptions

Tasting Salt: Plotting Merry Dismemberment

 

I thought these were absolutely phenomenal and H’H had already sent his outstanding title in. That was when I posted about the bar being set so high. I actually preferred TABLE SALT to Tasting Salt and I know SWMBO was conflicted about whether to choose Deceptions or Dismemberment.

But those were not the only two she sent; I hope SWMBO will post her others on the Leftovers thread because they are worth sharing.

PART A

ROUND SEVEN (FINAL ROUND of PART A): EDDARD STARK

For the finale of Part A, the Ned found time to collate his memoirs whilst contemplating life and death in his cell in King’s Landing. One would expect him to be straight, honest and to the point about everything with perhaps one glaring exception. Or would he? What is Ned’s title to his autobiography?

 

ACRONYMS:

W H H

F M K I

C C T O W

 

Deadline below

QUESTION:

Can you all be done by Friday midday UK time?

I ask because I will be unable to do the results and new round throughout the whole weekend.

Will try to get something in today or tomorrow.

For the Walder Frey round: both RB's entries were solid. I feel bad for not voting for either, but gave each one a lot of thought.

 

Catelyn Stark

First:  3. Who’s Left - “Bloodless Woman”

Second: 1. Don’t… - Preaching Clarity

Third:  6. Desperate Prayers Confessed
