Outlandish Swap V: The Fiery Cross

Scottish clans were originally a Highland way of life. The Highland clan was, above all things, a family; a family in which everybody believed they were all, from chief to blacksmith, descended from one founder or progenitor. They regarded themselves as very close kinsmen. This Swap is dedicated to such clan families and will be organized into four clans.

I used a spreadsheet too! One of my own devising, but I lay out the alphabet, count how many of each letter there are, then put the correct letters below as I figure them out. This helps me find high use letters. Of course, I'm still not very good at these. :)
