I was thinking that number 1 could be dishonor (you give honors to some folks) and number 6 could also be disfigure as we are trying to figure dis stuff out

Not really nvrsleep, because honor is something intrinsic in the nature of a person, not something you can give someone. You can "honor them," but not give them honor.

Anyways, it's too bad they didn't show the explanation in the ToTD preview, since it woulda made it solvable

But once you read it, it's an awesome teaser!

actually, an honor can be given, one of its definitions is "A mark, token, or gesture of respect or distinction"

Oops. I forgot something...honor can also mean "A military decoration"
