ROUND THREE RESULTS

 

rocksniffer's votes:

1st) 3

2nd) 4

3rd) 8

 

1 for Margaery…

   Outlasting Flatulent Lions

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

 

2 Pusillanimous Noblewoman?! Nonsense!!

honeyed chicken 1+1 +1 = 3

 

3 Pricks, Nitwits, Nincompoops

Raisin’ Bran 1+1 +2+3+3+2+2+2+3 = 19

 

4 Persnickety Nanaw’s Novel

Howlin’ Howland 1+1 +3+2 = 7

 

5 Pricking Needs Nerves

Fragile Bird 1+1 +3+1 = 6

 

6 I Garden In Winter

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

 

7 Idle Gems, Inviolate Wisdom

She Who Must Be Obeyed 1+1 +1+2 = 5

 

8 PRICKLING - Narrative Naughty

RhaenysBee 1+1 +3+3+1+1 = 10

 

A clear winner of the round, Raisin' Bran makes up for not entering R2 with a terrific haul of 19 points from a straight and to-the-point, no-nonsense title very befitting of what might be written inside. rocksniffer came in second with his smart use of the letters, a guidebook it might seem for keeping steps ahead of the Lannisters. RhaenysBee was close behind him with a nice use of the alliterated Ns and a strong one-word title in front. This appears to have been one of those rounds where snappiness defeated cleverness, as there were some clever titles that didn't get much appreciation.

 

rocksniffer 28 + 12 = 40

Jez Bell 25 + 8 = 33

RhaenysBee 17 + 10 = 27

She Who Must Be Obeyed 21 + 5 = 26

Fragile Bird 18 + 6 = 24 / Raisin’ Bran 5 + 19 = 24

Howlin’ Howland 13 + 7 = 20

honeyed chicken 11 + 3 = 14

 

Castellan 1+1+1 = 3 (points for voting)

 

rocksniffer keeps out in front but there is lots of time to make up the ground behind him.

Please check my tallies in case a mistake was made.

New round coming soon

PART A

ROUND FIVE - WALDER FREY

 

From the wise decency of Aemon to the wise nefariousness of Lord Walder Frey. The prickly old villain will no doubt make his autobiography compulsory reading amongst his subjects, forcibly read to the illiterate ones. What might such a man want to say?

What is the title to his repulsive memoir?

 

Create the title from one of the following acronyms:

H E H

F W F B

T S P M D

The random generator genuinely gave me HAH. It just felt right to change it to HEH.

 

Entry deadline is Thursday 22nd of November and midday UK time

ROUND FOUR RESULTS

 

1 Duty First: Countering Paternal Demands

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

 

2 A Valiant Crow

RhaenysBee 1+1 +1+3+1+2+3+1+2+1 = 16

 

3 Dragon Family’s Crown Properly Declined

Howlin’ Howland 1+1 +3+1 = 6

 

4 Aemon: Voluntarily Chained

Jez Bell 1+1 +1+2+3+2+3+3+3 = 19

 

5 Decisions: Forsaken Crown, Pledged Dispassion

Raisin’ Bran 1+1 +2+1+2 = 7

 

6 Duty Forbids Counseling Promised Dragoness

honeyed chicken 1+1 +2 = 4

 

7 “Denying Family” - Choosing Perennial Defense

rocksniffer 1+1 +2+1+1 = 6

 

Jez Bell 33 + 19 = 52

rocksniffer 40 + 6 = 46

RhaenysBee 27 + 16 = 43

She Who Must Be Obeyed 26 + 10 = 36

Raisin’ Bran 24 + 7 = 31

Howlin’ Howland 20 + 6 = 26

Fragile Bird 24 + 1 (point for voting) = 25

honeyed chicken 14 + 4 = 18

 

Castellan 1+1+1+1 = 4 (points for voting)

 

Short and snappy wins this round too. Jez Bell makes her play for leadership and takes it with a smart and simple title that seems eminently plausible for Aemon. A close 2nd place this round goes to RheanysBee with another smart and simple title that keeps her within touching distance of the frontrunners. SWMBO rounds off the top 3 of the round and maintains 4th spot overall.

PART A

Round SIX - CATELYN STARK

 

Cat’s life story has pretty much everything: drama, love, hate, duty, war, tragedy. It would surely make for a very interesting read. Perhaps its tone would depend on when she wrote it. That can be up to you.

Put yourself in her shoes and tell us what she would name her autobiography?

 

Create the title from one of the following acronyms:

D P C

W L B W

G U C M O

 

Titles to be completed by Monday November 26th at 11pm UK time

 

I think this one is a fairly tricky assignment. Might be the letters though.
