ROUND 9 - BENJEN STARK

 

Ah, the Starks and their heart for duty.  Benjen felt the call to the Watch and left his family home soon after Ned's return from the war.  He quickly rose up in the ranks to First Ranger, but ranging is dangerous work.  Benjen left to find missing rangers, and then went missing himself.  The last trace of him was in the stony highlands.  He has been seen or heard from since.

Where o where is Benjen?  The ravens keep coming back with the same reply.

Challenge accepted.

 

 

Or not.

 

 

Nope, challenge not accepted. :leaving:

Funny how no one wants the tough letters in the regular rounds, but there were q's and z's all over the place in the bonus.  Maybe every round should have scrabble rules?
