Overlord: Great Wyrm with Siege Engines
Plot: Obsidian Shackles

Heroes:
Lord Hawthorne (Knight) Sword/shield, chainmail
Landrec the Wise (Spiritwalker) Immolation, Ghost Armor
Ronan of the Wild (Born to the Bow) Bow, Leather Armor, Ring of Prot
Talhia (Leadership) Chainmail, Axe

Note: the skills were drawn randomly...I know!!! surprise

The heroes headed toward Thelsvan Highway and drew the Gauntlet for the 1st level.

The OL took the Sorcerer option and almost immediately added a beastman war party to the fray. Our heroes proceeded slowly using guard as much as possible to prevent either a spawn or the leader opening the runed doors and taking out a "softy". The action picked up as the OL added a pair of Blood apes to the party and opened the runed door to retreat his leader into our starting area. In his zeal to score a hit on the Master Beastman, Ronan got a little too close for comfort and was focus fired on by several commanded sorcerers and a beastman (3 Conquest). Lord Hawthorne charged into the fray taking out a beastman and a sorcerer while Tahlia also dropped a Sorcerer. Landrec rolled poorly and only managed to damage the Beastman (which Hawthorne finished) and miss a Sorcerer (which Hawthorne also took care of)
The OL then focus fired on Lord Hawthorne with the Blood apes and the remaining Sorcerer scoring impressive hits and getting the 2nd kill of the night (4 conquest). After this the Heroes rallied with Tahlia and a returned Ronan (armed with a market great bow) dropping the master beastman and clearing out the remaining blood apes and the last sorcerer. At this point the OL began playing for level 2 and did not spawn anything (though he did play power cards). Eventually the heroes chased down the leader and dropped him.

OL finished with 9 conquest
Heroes finished with 7 conquest

We started week 2 with the OL moving Alric to Vynelvale and buying Merrick

Indeed, we'd spotted the OL 7 conquest for kills and 1 from the chest for a total of 8, While he had Horde of Things and Doom in play with allot of threat and cards to play.

The Heroes fled

Good idea. Giving up 9CTs for the first dungeon was probably a bad idea though. After Hawthone died, they should have fled immediately. Try a different dungeon (there are plenty of them) and don't give up so many CTs this early on!

I would also say that playing too slowly is still dangerous in RoTL...

The Gauntlet isn't so big a map and still the OL had time to 2 perma cards and 2 spawns ?

That is an hefty number of Threat Token, especially with the Spawn Token.
