Home Questing: The 18th Task - Results!

 by Janus "Christopher" Donnelly

Hello and welcome to the results of home questing: the 18th task. Last time, I asked you to contact me to schedule a time to chat.  And the reason for this was a timed task!  Let’s see how that went:

I’m going to nip a few things in the bud early.  Writing was allowed and fine.  In addition, Cressida’s categories, while unique, are in fact categories...just not useful in categorizing things.

So, that leaves us with people who created the following word chains:

Laika (8 words)

Chimeron (Nation)

Night (word)

Therian (name)

New Illinar (plot)

Righteous (emotion)

Sky (place)

Ymir (god)

Reason (thought)

Del Hemar (12 words)

Cat (animal)

Telephone (communication device)

Egg (food)

Golf (sport)

Frank (name)

Kilogram (measurement)

Mother (family relation)

Red (color)

Druid (faith)

Dragon (mythalogical creature)

November (action)

Read (action)

Cressida (13 words)

Pumpkin (Grows in a patch)

Nut (is covered in dirt)

Turmoil (the feeling I'm feeling right now)

Loss (something I don't want to happen)

Sustainability (something important to me)

Youth (Group of people I like to work with)

Heart (Favorite symbol)

Tea (something i don't enjoy)

Art (best form of expression)

Trees (Freaks of nature)

Science (is real)

Earth (planet)

Heavy (attribute)

So, in first place is Cressida with 11 points, second is DelHemar with 10, and in third is Laika en’Naur with 9, but I am also giving him a bonus point for not mentioning anything even vaguely from the emerald path to bring his total to 10 points.

And that brings us to the total scores so far.  For the first time in a little while, we had someone new hop into 3rd place.

DelHemar - 175.5

Cressida - 161

Laika en'Naur - 39

Saka - 22

Iawen - 20

Aeston, Areni, and Gwen - 18.5

Kovaks - 15

Orion - 13

Bart - 11

Vawn - 10

Syruss - 10

Jerrick Jerrickson - 10

Luc-Dubois Coupant - 9

Osa - 8

Keras - 8

Kwido - 6

J'reth - 5

Nalydros - 5

Rosetta - 5

Sagart Hawkshade - 5

Tarun Ul-Sikar - 5

Thayet - 5

Vanduke - 4

King Alexander Cecil - 2.5

Jace - 2

Kara Nithisdottir - 1.5

Thoril - 1.5

Stay tuned next week for the next challenge.
