I am a proud papa! Last week at Bonsor, Arthur hosted a game: He set up the scenario, and then refereed the game. The scenario had a small force of Gondor spearmen and archers stranded in some ancient ruins, where they needed to defend themselves against a force of Mordor orcs led by the Nazgul. Meanwhile, a relief force hurried to their rescue!

The game went well. Michael and Evan shared command of the forces of Gondor, both playing their first game of Dragon Rampant. I lead the forces of Mordor to a predictable defeat. I didn't take advantage of the Nazgul's special ability to cause fear - I should have had them support the orcs attacking the castle - they could cause fear on the defenders, then send in the orcs to easily defeat the defenders. Instead, I used them to slow down the reinforcements - all too typical for me, I'm afraid, as I am far too prone to dividing my forces instead of concentrating them for victory.
