Acrophobia #37: Tourists! Come See My Beautiful Kingdom!!

Recommended Posts

Round 9: Casterly Rock

The home of the famous Lannister clan. Powerful, greedy, cunning people. Will tourists flock to see their home city and try to learn the secret of their power? Let's see what slogans we have to entice the CR tourist board:

  1. Hear us rock! Large explorable caverns await.
  2. Dandy Lions In Carnate
  3. Historic Underground Ruins Liven Even Castamere Allies.
  4. Notable Diversions and Nationally Lionized Refrains!
  5. Domesticated lions in caverns . . .
  6. Delightful lioness invites customers.
  7. Notorious den, advanced numerous Lannister reigns!
  8. Here, underdogs! Roaring lions, extravagant caverns! Assemble!
  9. Mines! Lions! Self-exalting freaks!

All entries are in. The ninth one was hiding in my message box (in plain sight). Apologies for missing it!

Deadline for voting on these entries is next Sunday, Feb.9.

Those entries are awesome.

I’m seriously depressed.

You guys are all playing at a high level and whoever wins will certainly have earned it the hard way.

Everyone seems to have found comedy in the Lannisters. Tywin would not be pleased.

No, Tywin would be most displeased. :D

I’m glad Gabe has survived the floods, and I hope they can get his car going again,  (note - Gabe, how could you do that, after the flood siren went off??) but do you know the little devil actually sympathized with me and said he really sucked this game this time?

’Snarls, Lannister-style!’

Talk about sticking the shiv in your ribs!

Well it's a warning siren, that it's soon to flood in the town, so I had time. The small flooded section I went through was in a completely unexpected place, up the hill and well before the town. I'd been looking forward to this tournament for a few weeks and I'd have been going back to Manchester afterwards, thus avoiding flood areas, so had I got through it would have been fine.

And that's not what I said :lol:. I merely suggested I've too often not spent enough time on my entries. Also, if mine was that good why didn't it get a vote from you? :o :P

I’ve always thought everyone should be encouraged with votes. Sometimes the struggle is really hard. Sometimes you get very disheartened. And the top two entries were so good, it was impossible to give one a tie breaking vote when both deserved top points!

Right now I am so disheartened I may skip the last round....
