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.

Fraser Challenge

This is a tale that roams near and far in both space and time...therefore ye will search through hundreds of years to find the answers ye seek. They will all be places -- proper names some, but not all. The tenth question is one that will necessitate the other 9 being answered. Ye must fill in all the answers in the crossword.

EDITED TO ADD on 10.25.09:

Question 10 is the act of filling in all the answers into the crossword. Ye must send the answers to the 9 clues to the highlandergames ymail address with fraser or crossword in the subject line.

If you mis-spell anything, that would make #10 wrong, as it wouldn't work in the crossword.

The due date is October 28th. Send to highlandergames@ymail.com. Put Fraser Challenge in the subject line. Note, this should be the same address you ALWAYS send the challenge to.

Two-worded answers will have a space in the puzzle to separate the words (in fact, only 4 of the answers are ONE word!).

Sample Clue: The "road" to Jamie Answer: Craigh Na Dun Crossword: would show 13 empty spaces

Luck be with ye, sisters, we hope this quiz be much fun and little stress on ye, and ye enjoy your tromp back through the book for the answers...

~Ladies of Clan Frasers

Note: This game is for all Lassies in Beauchamp, Murray and Mackenzie clans.

So am I the only one who doesn't see a question 10? Am I missing something?

Stacey said...

Could someone please confirm when answers are due? Do we still send them to highlandergames? What do we put in the subject line: crossword or Fraser challenge? Thanks!!

sorry for the confusion -- this challenge is doe on Oct. 28th

and meaghan -- #10 is filling in the answers in the crossword -- so any spelling issues would cause you to lose your 10th point, even if I recognized the answer as correct.

hope this helps!
