Life has kicked me in the butt these last few weeks and I have not been able to stay on top of things.  Sincere apologies.

I will be back online soon.  I will catch up on PMs now and hope to post early AM.

Oh I’m so sorry to hear that. And no apology necessary, life comes first. 

i was just asking to find out if there were any game updates, and I’ll patiently wait until there’s some. 

hope everything’s okay at your end.

Rhaenys Bee and rocksniffer dominated the bonus round, but redriver and Fragile Bird did very well.  I'm sad that Howlin' Howland's excellent entry didn't get any votes

 

Bonus points:

Rhaenys Bee:    31

rocksniffer:    30

redriver:    25

Fragile Bird:    24

Honeyed Chicken:    21 +5 ('cuz I made a mistake and wasn't clear about the placement of the wildcards and didn't check the entry before I placed it)

Emmit:    20

Count Balerion:    15

Howlin' Howland:    3

Dolorous Gabe:    1

Castellan:    1

Hallyne is a pyromancer.  He’s got skills.  He’s got issues.  But can you find him when you need him?

Participation is totally optional

 

I thought the bonus round was just optional and didn't affect the score of the game!!!

I didn't but I was too tired to tackle it, or Howland in fact.

Yes, you're right.  I will separate out the regular and bonus points.

Edit:  It seems in my haste to catch up, I have made many mistakes... forgive me while I try understand the consequences of my actions (cut and paste).
