ROUND 8 - HOWLAND REED

Oh so mysterious.  There are many stories about Howland; how he had a thing for magic, how is is possibly the Knight of the Laughing Tree, how he killed Ser Aurthur Dayne...  He may also be the only living soul who can confirm Jon's ancestry.  Yet, after the rebellion, he vanished from sight, retreating back to his mobile castle in the swamps of the neck.

So my question is, where the fuck is Howland Reed?

Only a few entries so far, but I guess you guys are a bit swamped.

Hands up if you want an extra day.

Eight rounds in, and I have just realized that, as the host, I get to make up the rules.

So, I have decided to add a bonus round.  Let's call it the wildfire round: 8.omg  

So, come all you alchemists, this is gonna be fast and furious.  

The rules:

Spoiler

 

You get one acronym, with two wildcard slots (?).  You can use any letter or a blank to fill in the wildcards.

Use them wisely, because scrabble rules apply.  You get points based on the letters you use.

  • 0 points BLANK
  • 1 pointE A I O N R T L S U
  • 2 pointsD G
  • 3 pointsB C M P
  • 4 pointsF H V W Y
  • 5 pointsK
  • 8 pointsJ X
  • 10 pointsQ Z

You can replace the question marks with a letter of your choice or leave it blank.

BUT, before ypu think you can just put in quiggly/ziggly., there will also be voting per the normal rules.  If you get no votes, you get no letter points.  

So, for example, if I gave you the following:

(?) A B C D (?)

you could give me:

I'm away boinking cows.  Ding later.

You would get 1 point for using I and 1 point for using L, for 2 point plus whatever votes

but if you gave me:

Fuck away.  Boinking cows.  Don't call

You would get 4 points for using F and 3 for using C, for 7 points plus whatever votes.

 

If you get no votes, you get no points.

 

Ready?

Spoiler

 

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

(?) F I R E (?)

 

 

 Participation is totally optional, no extensions allowed.  Deadline: Saturday, Oct 19, 5am (BST)

 

OK, go!

Still missing a few, so I'm going to wait a few more hours until this evening.  I'll start posting around 6pm BST.  Applies to the bonus round as well, so I can post everything together.

I just want to double check that no one is having trouble sending me PMs.
