Acrophilia #20: Breakers of Chains

Recommended Posts

I haven't spent time since day one this round. It's the time of year where we great from sun up to sun down for 19 days and I thought it would be a good distraction but instead I just don't have the mental energy.

:huh: If I do it will be news to me! Perhaps the Bird is just having us on, Julia!

That could also be so... And maybe she wrote #clue 5! :P

Theme hints?

Take into account all I have said. Find the bonus character and research.

I made the clue for the bonus character because it wouldn't have been right to give this character to a player.

This theme absolutely needs research. But remember that neither wiki nor maps will be helpful in researching this theme. There are other tools out there for researching the text. Start with the bonus character. The fewer scenes a character is in, the easier he/she will be to research.

:shocked:  If the bonus character would have leaped off the page and announced, "Here I am!" I might have been able to research him/her in a more timely way.

Diabolical, I say, devilishly diabolical! :P

So there's an hour left but I'll wait until just before I decide I need sleep to post results, so you have maybe 2-3 more hours but please inform me of any changes to your answers in a new message.

I haven't sorted out the final round yet, so please bear with me.

Usually I'd like a bit more notice than this but that's fine. You have an extra 24 hours.

As for the bonus character, they made themselves known to me as soon as I read the description, but maybe it's because I re-read the chapter they appeared in quite recently...

ROUND FOUR ANSWERS
