Round 1 leftovers

My character:  Jorah Mormont

My clue:  Friendzoned rat. Needy.

My leftovers:

Rebellion bludgeoner. Overspending prompted decisions.

Could have been Robert?

Quit inheritance. Craven. Bride adored easier ways.

Too easy?

hey those were good...first one was kind of robertish

second one was quite good for jorah

i had missandei and went with royal bedwarmer clue but these were my others...

forlorn, runty, notetaker.

she translated but did not really take notes, even though she could write.

quintessential interpreter. child's body, adult wisdom.

she is described in wiki as being young but having old wisdom.

:smoking:

Might have been easier, but I really like it.

"Polyglot" bed warmer was good - though even I got it. I like both your leftovers.

Mine was Brienne, and I had a bunch. Initially I forgot the no proper nouns restriction . . .

- female Rorge neuterer/ female Rorge 'Nihilator

- Quest into Crackclaw becomes an execution. Whispers . . .

- Roelle's "babe" ordained pointed defender.

 . . .  till Gabe straightened me out:

- Ripped babe. Overpowers pompous deceivers.

- Rare bird overcomes prickly demeanor.

- Reworked blade of prodigious damsel

Could have been Robert, yes. But I really like the wording.

Not easier than the final one was (which screamed "Jorah" to me immediately). A good clue, I think.

I love the second one!

I like both of these, but especially the prodigious damsel phrase. A great description of Brienne! I liked the final one, too, although it sent me on a long quest for rare blades. :D

My R1 character was Asha, and I have this leftover for her (and lots of variations):

“Quit inland castle,” bachelorette advises. “Emotions wintry!”

Round 1 - Dany

These ones were Ok I thought but I went with something else in the end.

Queen is coming! Better abolish enslavement willingly…
 
Queen is coming! Burning abolitionist educates wilfully
 
Of those posted in this thread I especially liked:

and I really liked this one. I will be thinking of Asha as a bachelorette from now on.

Wow, I really like several of these clues! My leftovers are usually not very good but here are a few of them that were either rejected or just did not make the cut.

For Daario:

Flamboyant ribald nature. - I agree, it could be anyone in this series! :rolleyes:

Quite impressive colored beard and erotic weapons. - This one was so easy I might as well have used his name. :o

I only had one extra for Tywin, who proved difficult to describe with the letters available.

Tyrannical vilified father. - This was just too ambiguous. :huh:

For Arya my final clue was sort of a combination of these two: :D

Dauntless initiate says bedtime hate tally.

Dexterous, intrepid, spunky blood-letter. Heartfelt tenacity.

Not too soon to reveal r.2 leftovers is it?

I hit on the one I wanted to use for Stannis pretty quickly, but had these two:

- Inherited one noble quality (he does his duty - but the clue is too vague)

- terrible vows felled (too much of a sentence fragment - even for me)

I had Daenerys for R2.

The first few ideas were just jokes, not real clue suggestions, to see how easy it can be made:

Targaryen , Valyrian, Female. (Rule-breaking, I know.)

Idealism overcomes new queen. (This one sounds more like a real clue.)

Uh-huh. Belle upwardly escapes. (Just for fun.)

I had these ones as well, but also had issues with them:

Invoked ontological necromancy. Queen!

Used Heat, Became Unburnt. Emancipates.

Really like this one: Idealism overcomes new queen.
