Good guys Brad and Pat faced off against evil Richard. Taking advantage of newbie ignorance, Richard rode the North Wind to swoop on poor little Willow with the Army of Nockmaar. Despite wielding his magic sword to considerable effect, the little chap was overwhelmed, and the baby Elora Danaan stolen from him. The good guys, after some debate, took a relic from Cherlindrea's Forest before finally getting around to releasing Mad Martigan from his captivity. The bad guy and gal went West away from Nockmaar Castle, causing some confusion in the ranks of good. But pretty soon the Freen ferrymen showed up and took Princess Sorsha far away to the mountains near Tir Asleen. Mad Martigan saddled his horse and gave chase. Willow went nuts and charged General Kael with a Lightning Bolt spell that fizzled yet again. Airk went to rescue Willow, but instead took a pummeling and the Army of Galladoon were routed. Sorsha had to pull a few fancy moves to delay Martigan who was travelling on a horse that would have been a Melbourne Cup contender, and equipped with magic sword and armour was looking fairly formidable. A few foes to slow Martigan, an extra move, and a daring cross-country tobogganning ploy saw Sorsha at the gates of Nockmaar Castle bearing the baby. Richard was feeling a bit bad at this point - the game was going to be over after only 20 minutes, and the only experience Brad and Pat had had was of a good pummeling. That was all about to change.... Kael failed to find the heroes and they snuck away. The double move trick was pulled by the good guys, and they regrouped with Martigan. Extensive strategy consultations gave Martigan the Dust of the Broken Heart and a Haste spell, to give him four consecutive moves while Sorsha tried to prove her identity to the deaf and blind gatekeeper. Martigan attacked the fair princess as she stood alone, but a lucky arrow from her trusty bow knocked his sword out his hand. In desperation he threw the Dust of the Broken Heart and smiled his goofiest grin. Sorsha was smitten, the scene faded to a tumultuous sky over the sound of crashing waves, and suddenly Sorsha cried, aaagh I've had with living at home, I'm nearly 30 gooddammit and it's time to move on. Without as much as a goodbye note to Queen Bavmorda who, as a single mother had struggled with a demanding job (oppressing an entire kingdom) as well as with raising a baby with no decent help, Sorsha was off to join the good guys. Kael struggled on alone, but his horse was a pathetic unregistered bomb, cast off when the "good" guys upgraded to the latest Pegasus model, so he could only watch from afar as the good guys rode off into the distance, woke the sleepers of Tir Asleen and crowned the new King and Queen of the realm. He had a bad feeling Queen Bavmorda wasn't going to give him his performance bonus this month....


Good fun as always. I am not sure skill is always rewarded with victory, but it does reap the reward of pulling off some satisfying tricky plays.
