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.

Round One Scores

I would like to thank everyone who submitted responses for the first challenge. Out of a possible 51 entries, we received 39 answers which is 76%. Ye've all done a bonny job and your chieftesses are so proud of ye!

Beauchamp - 6 perfect scores: Nemetona, Ealasaid, Morven, Muirne, Isobel and Brianna. 5 additional challenges received from Lady North Facing, Elsbeth, Siusan, Haze and Caroline.
Fraser - Perfect scores received from Nannag and Camille. Entries also received from: Morgana, Jocasta, Molly, Phaedra, Sassenach and Margaret Simpson.
MacKenzie- 6 perfect scores from: Kinley, Siobhan, Ide, Seonag, Catriona Duncan and Madeleine. Three additional entries from: Leigh, Aislinn and Ceili.
Murray also sent in 11 responses: perfect scores from Ceitidh, Catriona, Joan, Marsala and Mary. Additional responses from: Mona, Eileen, Angelique, Latharna, Morrigan and Muirne.

Kellan's minions, who usually draw the name out of the hand-knit felted cloche, are sick. Therefore, I did not have them pick the winners from among those with perfect scores. I drew the name out, and the winner is Catriona Murray. Catriona earns five additional points for her clan.

Clan Standings:
Beauchamp: 70 + 1 = 71
Murray: 61 + 2 + 5= 68
MacKenzie: 47 + 1 + 48
Fraser: 29
Extra points earned for their respective clans:
Siobhan was our Early Bird. Answers received at: 1:02 pm on Wednesday (11/7)
Ealasaid earned the Bold Scot award. She remarked on Frank's nakedness..
Muirne of Clan Murray earned the Wise Woman award. She was the first to use THE SIGHT to divine one of the answers. (She didn't know the quote, but correctly divined who said it.)
Our Sneaker Award goes to Mona of Clan Murray. She submitted her answers at 11:53 PM on the last day, just 7 minutes before the deadline.

Note on how scores were tallied:
When totalling up the scores, we did something a little different. We polled everyone in the beginning, asking if they were going to participate. Taking each of the yesses from each clan and taking away the chieftesses (we were not allowed to play in this round) Beachamp, MacKenzie and Murray each had 13 eligible players. Fraser had 12. I added up the total score for the games for each clan, multiplied it by # of entries and then divided by the # of eligible players and rounded to the nearest number. Then I added in Sneaker, Early Bird, etc.
