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.

Murray Challenge

OK, the technical challenges have been solved, I hope. Since the posting of this challenge has been delayed by almost 24 hours (well close enough for a full day for government work) we're giving you until midnight on Nov. 13 to complete this challenge. The Beauchamp challenge will be delayed one day, too. Since this challenge includes lots of charts and blogger doesn't like charts, I've posted the main instructions for the puzzle, and a link to open files (in a pdf format). If you have difficulties, contact Kellan (knitmo) at Ravelry and she'll help you out.

Here's the PDF document. You can also click on it here or print it from what should be embeded below.



Tis game night and the Murray Clan is inviting all of our Good-Sisters to join us at our campfire. But dinna fash yerselves. There are several games here, but you needna play them all. Some of the games are worth 2 points, some only one. The most you can get is 10 points.

We love our Jamieisms, but Herself gives many others memorable quotes. The theme of our games tonight is quotes. Let’s see if you can solve a few of these. We ask only that you earn 10 points. The Quotagrams and the Cryptograms are worth 2 points each. The Quotefalls are worth 1 point each. You get to pick the puzzles that you like best. To submit your answer, you only need to send me the quote. Please have MURRAY in the subject line of your email, and kindly let me know which lass is submitting her challenge. Your answers should be sent to highlandergames@ymail.com

To solve the quotagrams, solve each of the clues below the chart. Put the letter for each of those answers into corresponding box in the chart directly above it. Each word in the quote is separated by a solid box, so the third word on line one is 4 letters - the first two letters of the word are on line one, the last two begin line two.
