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.

The Final Voyager Challenge: Results

Good Sisters,

The Games have come to a close with this last challenge and the results are in. We had 17 of you participate, with three perfect scores. Braw job, lasses!  You have shown, by using your wit, skill and charm that you have what it takes to be a Highlander Lass in the 1700's.

The three perfect scores were from Brianna Beauchamp, Ceitidh Murray and Nemetona Beauchamp. You do your clans proud, lasses.

And the Winner is:  Ceitidh (Shaydy)

The lasses participating were:
  • Lady NorthFacing, Nemetona, Ealasaid, Morven, Muirne, Siusan, Imogene and Brianna from the Beauchamps
  • Nannag and Molly from from the Frasers
  • Ide, Seonag and Ceili from the MacKenzies
  • Ceitidh, Joan, Marsali and Zella from the Murrays.

If you sent something in and dinna see your name, please let us know so we can figure out what happened.

Special Awards and Accolades: 
  • Early Bird goes to Ceitidh of Clan Murray
  • Sneaker goes to Zella of Clan Murray (11:54 pm on 12/2)
  • Nannag and Nemetona get special accolades for their cache of weaponry:  Nannag uses an Ink bottle and a List of words, while Nemetona used Cold, Lips, Anvil and Irons. I believe Nannag would be our school teacher. Nemetona could be our Special Task Force Interrogator?

Reading over the "Category" responses was the most entertaining of all of the challenges we have seen.

Clan Results:
Beauchamp: 42
Fraser: 7
MacKenzie: 8
Murray: 24 + 1 + 1 = 26 (Early Bird and Sneaker)

Clan Standings:
Beauchamp: 490
Fraser: 205
MacKenzie: 205
Murray: 338


We would like to thank all of the lasses who participated in the challenges. The challenges keep us coming back to the swap and We think they keep us more involved and help us know each other a bit better.

Respectfully submitted,

Mordag Murray, Kellan MacKenzie, Fiona Fraser, and Eilis Beauchamp
