This player had partial success with keeping the Mumakaril south of Mordor. All but one, played faction was killed. The Seeing-stones of Ankatarë was played, but rarely used to note the game without its play. Almost all non-agent characters were eliminated. CvCC or other minion encounters were tough to handle. Relin II with Southern Hammer was killed by A Malady Without Healing. Tabaya Kas was killed by Channels of Chey losing Visor of Siryan and Staff of Medra. Pallando was corrupted using Vanishment, but I kept him in play. Later stages of the game saw tough decisions to either CvCC or influence away factions.
Factions moved first on Turn 14. Five factions were eliminated by Turn 20. No factions were healed. Eight characters killed. This benefited the wizard by freeing direct influence. Pallando barely failed in the last two turns influencing two strong minion factions. Permanent-events were all played on sites protecting heroes from minions.
There were 9 body checks, killing 5 characters, from 85 strikes including detainment. The avatar was busy moving 22x while facing 1 strike from CvCC. Avatar did not tap for one turn. That is a lot of moving. The avatar was in play for 24 turns: 7 taps to accessed sideboard, x4 play item, x3 play factions, x2 support, 8x faced strikes, x1 cvcc, x1 for resource, x0.ally, x1 to remove hazard, and x4 to use Eyes of Mandos. Wizard Cart was not played.
Khandash killed by Indur the Ringwraith on a 6v10 combat; rolls bc.9. Boron killed by 9 prowess Pirates on a bc.9 on Turn 18. The next turn has Seafaring Bellakarin and His Fury Has Betrayed Him kill Peshtin. A bc roll of 6 adds 3 to kill Peshtin. Pallando moves with others to Bozisha-Dar to influence away a faction. (WV and PW in hand). Seek without Success sends the wizard’s company back, but Tabaya Kas arriving by another path is left alone. The man survives A Malady Without Healing. The man leaves, but again Seek without Success. Channels of Chey with 21 mind of magic-users kill Tabaya Kas. The heroes move to Bur Esmer again to influence away a faction. Indur’s minions CvCC with Oliphaunt stooping Dar with bc.9. Angulion visits again with A Malady Without Healing killing Relin by 10 body check roll.
This player was beaten with 20 creatures from 81 hazards, but 13 were agent actions. Akhorahil played 16 hazards. Three Sieges and two Seek Without Success cards caused delays. 21 MPs were earned including 9 Kill MPs. Three CvCC were defended and two initiated. Another two encounters by magicians eliminated characters. There were 39 moving companies and 65 total companies, but 19 squatting companies were at Mablad-Dum. Almost half the companies moved in a Desert. The hazard limit averaged 3.0 for companies not squatting at Mablad-Dum.
63 hazards were played by Pallando, 21 were agents – 16 on Akhorahil. Four creatures were played on Akhorahil. Only three players did not face one hazard from Pallando.
