783-play Dain

Post by dirhaval » Wed Oct 04, 2017 8:05 pm

OVERVIEW
This player gained 36 MP, killed three wyrms, but did not play many hazards. Several characters
were killed. Three CvCC were initiated yielded killing one and wounded two of Thromkaw’s
minions. No attempt was made on the Dragon-lord with his threat of canceling using a resource.
Corruption was a problem with many transfers. Without a Glance of Longing added to the
revised deck. A descent amount of sites were tapped. Stage points were not a burden. Card draw
was average. There were 35 moving companies or 1.5 per turn. Every two turns, one company
stayed. The game ended with 46 cards in the playdeck. I think I can exhaust a third given faster
hazards and more risky moves just to draw cards. It was nice facing the Harad division first.
+
MAJOR NEWS
It was nice killing the dragons. Ando-anca was killed during Turn 24. Leucaruth killed during
Turn 20. Scorba was killed unexpectedly during Turn 7.
+
STATS
Six characters were killed. Low body and high prowess attacks will do that. Mountaineer killed
by Orc-Lieutanent with Fury of the Iron Crown. Miner killed by two strikes. King’s Judge eaten
by Steel Fall AA. Pathfinder eaten by Daelomin Roused. Advisor is killed by agent. Eight
dwarves were wounded and not killed. No body enhancements starved off death.

other dragon attacks were faced. The only METD dragon-enhancer event used was Fever of
Unrest. 27 hazards were agent related. 42 hazards were events out of 86.
