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.

Game 1 In Media Res

For this first challenge we will be having a wee discussion. It will involve the first section of Fiery Cross. Please visit the special Games Thread that we have set up for that challenge. The results will be posted here sometime after the challenge.
Good Sisters,

Welcome to the Games and Challenges section of our Fiery Cross Swap. We will be doing things a wee bit different this time. Some of the games will be posted here, some on Ravelry. Some of the responses should be sent to our email account (highlandergames (at) ymail (dot) com and some of them should be posted to the games thread on Ravelry. We will try to be as clear as possible, but if you should have any questions at all, please send a message to either Mordag (abitknottie on Rav) or Fiona (cinnamonamon) on Rav). Or ask it in the general games chat thread. I am sure you won't be the only one with that question.

Who will participate in the games? All of the clan sisters, with the exception of the clan chieftesses, unless otherwise noted.

Our games schedule will follow this schedule:
Game 1: March 1 until March 15 Location: On Ravelry - Games Thread. Open to all swap participants but points will only be awarded to the clan sisters, not the chieftesses
Quiz 2: March 16 - March 22 Location: Here ~ responses sent to ymail account
Homework 3: March 23 - 29 Location: On Ravelry - Games Thread. Open to all swap participants.

Mordag and Fiona
