Acrophobia 34A&B: PART B R1

Recommended Posts

First:      2 What Lies Beyond Winter?

Second: 7 Widowhood Leaves Broken Woman

Third:     5 Deliverance: Postmortal Combat

 

@honeyed chicken I will take an HM. Thank you. I knew it was not going to get a lot of votes as it painted Walder in a less favorable light. I just liked it too much.

TABLE SALT: Plotting Merry Deceptions

Tasting Salt: Plotting Merry Dismemberment

 

I thought tasting salt did a better job of invoking the moment when the ultimate victim would feel safe because of guest right.  It was the far superior entry in my opinion.

See, from my perspective in this particular game this becomes too specific. I prefer titles less on-the-nose. But hey, we all have our own interpretations. That's part of the beauty of this game. Had I been voting, either version would have gotten a vote from me. As previously stated, my preference between them is marginal.

Boy, am I ever glad I've been having a stressful personal life and have had to ignore Westeros recently. These rounds have been fantastic! I don't think I would have written anything as good as the entries in the last two rounds!

1st.   5

2nd.  2

3rd.   3

ROUND SIX RESULTS

 

Sniffer’s votes:

1) 2

2) 7

3) 1

 

1 Don’t… - Preaching Clarity

RhaenysBee 1+1 +2+3+1 = 8

 

2 What Lies Beyond Winter?

Howlin’ Howland 1+1 +3+2+3+2+2+3 = 17

 

3 Who’s Left - “Bloodless Woman”

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

 

4 Womanly: love, bravery, work

Raisin’ Bran 1+1 +3+1+1 = 7

 

5 Deliverance: Postmortal Combat

Jez Bell 1+1 +2+1+1+3+2+3 = 14

 

6 Desperate Prayers Confessed

rocksniffer 1+1 +1 = 3

 

7 Widowhood Leaves Broken Woman

honeyed chicken 1+1 +2+2+1+2 = 9

 

Jez Bell 60 + 14 = 74

rocksniffer 58 + 3 = 61

She Who Must Be Obeyed 46 + 10 = 56 / Howlin’ Howland 39 + 17 = 56

RhaenysBee 45 + 8 = 53

honeyed chicken 33 + 9 = 42

Raisin’ Bran 33 + 7 = 40

 

Fragile Bird  25 + 1 = 26 (point for voting)

Castellan 1+1+1+1+1+1 = 6 (points for voting)

 

Howlin’ Howland wins the round with a terrific philosophical title, climbing powerfully up the standings in the second half of this game. Jez Bell scores strongly again with a snappy and strong title about undead revenge. It was a fine round of titles fought hard by all. Each can argue a strong case that it deserved more points and in any other round it probably would have got them.

 

Please check my tallies in case a mistake was made.

Will give a short extra time to see if one more entry comes in for R7. If you want to change your entry for the last round, let me know ASAP.

4 Winter’s Heavy Heart

5 Catastrophic Conspiracy…”TOWER OF WOE”

Round ends once everyone has voted. Will likely be late Monday before I can do the count, so please vote by then.

Hey all, thanks for voting and of course thanks for playing. I've enjoyed hosting this edition, I think autobiography titles really suits the game.

I am super tired so will probably wait till tomorrow to do the final count. This also gives opportunity for another vote or two to come in.

Does everyone want to launch straight into Part B or wait a little while?
