I added a new table. This new table shows a turn summary of the companies: character played or
killed, hazard limit, strikes rolled, corruption checks made, body checks, AA type, resource
played that site phase.
This player had partial success, but failed to keep dual factions. Important characters were killed
limiting useful site phases. However, lack of characters provided a greater general influence
buffer to protect against agents. Easterlings and Wain-Easterlings were both influenced by this
hero player, but both were later lost.
I was thinking of the following faction war rules: no influencing away a faction located in a
region or at a battle-ground site. This protects against agents, but exposes the faction to war
without the benefits of being at a site. The next game of Fate will have faction wars as soon as a
player’s deck exhausts. Uvatha played four factions in the first eight turns – Vidugavia only one.
May be I will wait until the Warlord Phase.
15 MPs were earned along with one Man faction. There were only 15 companies that had a
useful non-CVCC site phase. That is horribly low. Three CvCC were defended. Daelomin
Roused was killed. There were about 41 moving companies. The hazard limits were low with
only one company after Turn 11 with a HL greater than three. But one good creature can tap the
whole company. There were 19 body checks, killing 7 characters, from 53 strikes including
detainment. The avatar was busy moving 19x while facing 10 strikes with one from CvCC.
Avatar did not tap for six turns. That is a lot of moving and fighting. Avatar was left untapped to
face strikes while moving and to play a resource during site phase if card draw was good.
Smaug the Golden played Endless Whispers on Bain. Seven characters killed (3 in first 3 turns,
than 4 from turns 16-19. Tower Raided was not played. King of Dale not played just because
lacking the unique factions. This player was beaten with 12 creatures from 66 hazards,
but 18 were agent actions. Gap of Isen was reached to use Scatha Hoard Dispersed for playing a
hoard major item.
The avatar was in play for 24 turns: 6 taps to accessed sideboard, x1 play item, 4x play factions,
X1 support, 8 faced strikes, x1 cvcc, x2 for resource, x1.ally. The avatar moved 20x and
Caerlinc taps to face two strikes from the Nan Morsereg AA; he is killed. Khursh is killed by
agent Dasakun in Turn 2. Brand killed the next turn from the AA at Adan Tomb. Galva killed on
Turn 16 from Orc-Lieutanent under Tribal Banner. Eodoric killed the turned after from the
Elgaer AA. Yanos Kosvar killed on turn 19 from a Chill Douser. These are low prowess strikes.
A pile of 13 creatures attacked with 66 total hazards with 18 as agent actions against King
Vidugavia. 17 turns were easy, no creatures, for this player. Uvatha player dumped 13 hazards
alone on this player. 2 of the 13 were creatures. Seven of the first 16 turns had a hazard limit
passed to Uvatha, but only three hazards played. That is lucky.
65 hazards were played by Vidugavia – 14 on Uvatha. Every minion player faced at least one
hazard. Only Hoarmurath faced more than four (7). Uvatha faced Hermit Troll, Were-worm x2,
and Wild Troll.
First deck exhausted on Turn 10, but Turn 9 started with 23 in the playdeck. Second deck
exhaust on Turn 18. 15 non-Lordhaven sites were tapped. Lake-town was tapped x3 (mNR,
mNR, Ravens NR). First deck shuffled 10 cards and drew a high 9.3 cards/turn. Second deck
shuffled 11 cards and drew 12 cards/turn. Third deck ended with 33 in the deck, shuffled 5 cards
and drew 8.9 cards/turn.

An Unexpected Outpost
Facing Northern Waste division (played 8 hazards; Uvatha plays 1)
T01-avatar played. Some move to Nan Morsereg for Light Enchantment. No creatures played.
Caerlinc faces two AA strikes and dies on the second. Galva plays WYKM.
[many low prowess characters is a concern. That Light Enchantment not that useful. ]
T02-faction and hoard item in hand. Avatar moves to Lake-town. Others return to Riavod. There
is fear to travel through many wilderness against these minions. No creatures again. Agent
attacks at Lake-town killing Khursh. Brand influences Men of NR.
[This shows the issue with agents. Should an agent controlled by an outside divisional player or
the main hazard player attack during the site phase? No. I think it is too powerful for main hazard
player since both players are near to one another. The agent can be face-down without a site.
Divisional players are too busy. Now, Orders to Kill overrides this.]
T03-Vidugavia and Brand move to Adan Tomb. Others stay. Bain does not drink Enchanted
Stream. Brand taps to face both AA strikes and killed from the first. Vidugavia plays Habergeon
of Silver. Now three characters in play.
T04-War-forges played. Bain uses Ford. Move to Logath Camp to find Maran. Moving through
five Wildernesses runs into Fever of Unrest Itangast. He smelled the hoard items. Both are

Gap of Isen to play hoard item. Some move to Beorn’s House.
[Low 11 MP gathered. 18 cards in deck. Only one faction played. This is low and why I may not
allow faction wars until Turn 17 or after a deck exhausts. However, there is no restrictions on
Facing Harad division (played 8 hazards; Uvatha plays 1). This should be easy.
T09-Yanos Kosvar played at Riavod. Some move to Glittering Caves. Scatha Hoard Dispersed is

the site. Maran taps to play Horn of Anor.

T13-Daurukh played at Nuriag Camp. Maran returns to Riavod. Ent in Search of Entwives are
played from Long Dark Reach tapping Daurukh.
[A distraction is needed for Uvatha’s minions. Theoden King is at Barad-wath. Faramir is at
Nurniag Camp. Temple of Lokuthor is where Saruman is hiding.]
T14-Eodoric is played at Lake-town. Bain now moves to Riavod. Vidugavia moves to Easterling
Camp with Easterlings and Mighty Steed in hand. Galva is not Seized by Terror. Faction and ally
