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.

Beauchamp Challenge: Who or What Am I?

Come 'round all ye lovely sisters. Fàilt! We Beauchamps extend a hand of welcome. During the past month, you've deciphered curses, remembered a few quotes, uncrossed a few words, and unscrambled encrypted phrases. Can we tempt ye with a riddle or two? Use the following clues to identify the “who” or the “what” is meant by each riddle. All answers are found in Part 8: On the Water, of Voyager, where we daresay Claire might have enjoyed a laugh or two at the drawing above.

The deadline is Saturday, Nov. 21, at midnight, Eastern Time. As always:

  • Submit your answers to highlandergames@ymail.com
  • Include your Ravelry Name and Swap Name
  • List Beauchamp Challenge in the subject line
  • One point for each clue, with a maximum of 10 points.

  • Wishing ye much luck!

    The Clues:
    1. Uttered thrice, yet each time a charm
    2. Although given to Claire, Jamie uses this moniker more than she does.
    3. This "bruise" of a “witch” caused such an “uproar” that proved much “ado” about something.
    4. Once lost, never to be found, yet reminds its been around
    5. "Initially" a timeless “hand-fast,” these "misty" two can be traced to the heart of the story
    6. Good intentions pave the way to this Hell for our dynamic duo
    7. This joy, much admired in its expression, was almost lost in its possession
    8. Remembered with much “Porpoise,” and none too lightly to be foresworn
    9. In for a penny, in for a “pound,” his future cut short when his time came 'round.
    10. Ask not for whom the bells toll, for they toll for these.
    For those who want an extra credit or two, try these visual clues on for size. Answer the WHO and the WHAT:
