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.

Answers: Fraser Challenge

Thank you ladies, for enjoying this quiz with us! Although we may hope that we'd stumped more of you, we're satisfied that we were, at least, quite tricky! ;)

1. a. What Hebrew letter is this: aelph
b. What character expounds on this? Comte St. Germaine
c. What did the character say about the occult meaning of this letter? the font of Christ's blood

2. A) “it’s kept near the fleur-de-lys stamped jar in the healer’s box; what is this herb?” Pellitory-of-the-Wall
B) this herb/plant is related to: ________ Stinging Nettle
C) answer B is used to do what in this section? make a fake pox pustule
D) what other herbs/plants are mention in conjunction with answer B? rosemary & madder
E) one of these herbs/plants produces a certain color, what is that color? madder = crimson pee pee!

*note: there were some other herb/plant answers that were correct for parts c, d & e...if you did not answer the crossword & I "graded" you on this question individually, I allowed for those other answers.

3. He learned from a famous Calvin; although he bears more resemblance to the wild man of borneo...

"He" shares an acquaintance with Claire...one who may have replaced the dispicable du Carrefours."

Who is the shared acquaintance, and What city did each of these people meet their common acquaintance in?

4. Her home in France seems to include much from a nearby country. Along with the intentional acquisitions, there is a fugitive from the same country. Name the "acquisitions" (both animate & inanimate), and the fugitive from this country.

Shared acquaintance is Master Raymond, Claire met him in Paris, the mystery "him" (who was Walter Laurent) met Raymond in Geneva.

acquisitions: cuckoo clock, Berta & Maurice (who were possibly brother & sister), and the fugitive was Reverend Walter Laurent. I also saw the monkey & a sconce mentioned as other objects from Switzerland, which I would have double checked if it had mattered with regard to the scoring...

5. Translate this:

Pater noster, qui es in caelis:
sanctificetur Nomen Tuum;
adveniat Regnum Tuum;
fiat voluntas Tua,
sicut in caelo, et in terra.
Panem nostrum cotidianum da nobis hodie;
et dimitte nobis debita nostra,
Sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris;
et ne nos inducas in tentationem;
sed libera nos a Malo

This is the Lord's Prayer.

6. a life has been lost
a life is placed at her feet
a color remains

Whose life? Faith
Whose life? Bouton
What color? Blue

*note: this question was in direct reference to the scene in the hospital just before Master Raymond visits her & heals her.

7. name the man who wrote:
"freedom and Whisky gang tegither"
and name his poem too!

name the man, name the poem: Robert Burns, "The Author's Earnest Cry and Prayer"

8. a limb that's injured
a creamy colored treatment
the beast who caused it

whose limb? Jamie
what is the treatment? Hanged Man's grease (or "salve")
what beast? horse (or the specific animal -- also accepted Fergus as the one who caused it, lol)

9. news so long delayed
hand does not match appearance
"she" is met mid way

news regarding what place? Lisbon
whose hand? Murtaugh's (it was commented that his handwriting was quite nice/neat -- "not the formless scrawl she expected")
"she" is met by whom? Jamie ("she" is the ship, which stops in Lisbon midway through the trip & Jamie goes aboard then)
