Ok folks it looks like we're back round to the question of troops, ie how many each side has?

As for the settlement I was thinking:

50 Archers (Stationed along the main wall)
30 Roquen
100 infantry (Including local volunteers)

Does this sound about right Orual?

That sounds perfectly fine, especially considering that I have no idea what would make a good contingent at a newly-founded settlement.

I think that the numbers for Gondor will deplete quickly, not necessarily because of fatalities but because the still-sane soldiers will realize that it's a losing battle, and they will retreat without Anhelm's order, which they know will come only when Mount Doom freezes over. So eventually the whole settlement will be evacuated thoroughly, and not come back. Anhelm, though, as discussed, will have to be physically dragged out of the settlement.

Sounds okay?

Hey....I'm going to be gone for a while but I'll have limited computer access.....

I hope that I will be able to do some posts for Jinan before the game closes, but if I'm not able to, Novnarwen knows what to do.

Cheers,
Imladris

Thanks for the heads-up, Imladris!

Okay, everybody, the battle's started for real now...feel free to post with fighting or thoughts during the battle. We'll hold off on the climax until Imladris is back, though, so don't start with the climax fights yet.

Ok folks, the settlement is ablaze and the wall is a dusty pile of rubble! but we managed to destroy at least one catapult, yeah us! Astalder is now among the Haradrim ranks killing any and all in his path!

The catapults were well out of arrow range, so their destruction as written was impossible. But what's done is done, and it's time for some close quarter fighting, so let's get busy!

Tomorrow. I promise!

I believe it's Lan'kâsh's time to die. Kill him! He deserves it!

I'm going on holidays. Won't be able to post before 23rd of June, I think.

Have fun in the mean time!

That's the problem with games in the summer, huh?

Thanks for letting us know, Nova. Have fun on vacation, and we'll see you when you come back! Figuratively speaking, of course.

Technical Difficulties

Sorry I haven't been around lately. I lost my land line at the weekend and for some reason the public terminal that I tried to use to let you guys know of the problem would not let me login to this site *shrugs helplessly* But my service provider now assures me the problem is fixed, Yay!!!


oow! Mano thats thrown me, I will have to think how Astalder will escape that blow! I thought Anhelm was going to be wounded by Lan first? oh well I better get to it.

Shield slow motion action?

Hmm. Almost two weeks since the last post on the game. Any takers for the final fight scene? You are on the home stretch, folks; don't give up now. Things are in place nicely.

Sorry about that Bethberry I was hanging on to see if orual wanted to post before I finnished off Lan'kash, but as she hasn't I have gone ahead and put up my post.

Mano Astalder has left the Haradrim Leutentant close to death, so you can post his last dying thoughts. hope you like the battle, I really enjoyed writing it.

Orual once Immy and Nova are finished with their plans for their characters I think you can finish up with the retreat of the Gondorians. Astalder will be quite forceful in his insistance, assuring the captain that they will return, but with the might of Gondor behind them.

Thanks so much Bethberry!

Good show, guys. Nerindel, Anhelm's pretty much out of the running, as was decided earlier. Drag him on out whenever you're ready.

Imladris - I was a bit uncertain about how to handle the 'Frôzhal sees Jinan' scene. I am not sure how you think about it, but I'm happy to edit it if you want me to. And, are you going to write a post after mine to describe from Jinan's point of view?

Cheers,
Nova

Very awesome, Nova.

Of course I'll write a post...not now as I'm scrunching for time...probably Wednesday at the earliest.

Sounds neat, Imladris! I'll be anticipating your post, as I (and Frôzhal, especially) are very interested in how much pain Jinan felt....

(O.o That sounded very . . . brutal.. )

Cheers,

The Gondorians have retreated! The Poros now belongs to the Haradrim!

Edit: Ok I have some bad news, as from monday I will have little to no internet access as my computer will be in shop being repaired, we have just discovered the Floppy drive isn't working.
My advice to anyone planning to buy a new computer is Don't!
I miss my old system, it might have been an ancient relic and had a connection sped of a snail but at least it worked!

so this may be my last post, I hope you can finish without me!
I just what to say it has been great writing with you guys and I look forward to writing with Imladris and Orual in the soon to be newest addition to Rohan.
Mano, Nova it has been both an honour and a pleasure.

Namaarie

Thank you, Nerindel.

Is everybody happy with the way things turned out for their characters? Anything need to be added or expanded upon before we wrap up the game?

Get in your final posts and comments if need be.

Thanks to everybody--this has been fun.

About final post: I too, have little access to Internet these days. Would it be okay to put up a last post next week, within Friday?

I think that would be okay...we could end the game on Friday.

Hear that, everybody? Get your final posts up by next Friday. After that, I'll wrap up the game and we'll call it quits.

Awesome game everyone! It gave me the opportunity to possibly write my best bad guy ever! Nova and I had a lot of fun with our characters.

Cheers to all and hope to game with you again someday,

Boots Thanks for a wonderful game!

Hello!

My last post is up. I hope it is alright, but please let me know if there should be any edits!

This is my first Rohan Game, so I just want to thank you guys! I've been very lucky to game with you, as you are all wonderful writers, and I have enjoyed every bit of it!

Imladris - You've been great! Thank you for taking your time to PM me with your ideas. It has been a very enjoyable game due to your effort in making Frôzhal hate Jinan.
Nerindel, Mano - Thank you very much! I've enjoyed very much gaming with you! Hope we can do it again some time soon!
Orual - Thank you very much for a great and enjoyable game!

Thanks!

Cheers,
Nova

Good going, everyone! I've closed the game thread but will leave this thread open for a few days in case you wish to make any final comments. Please read over the game to see if you have any edits you wish to make or any unfilled saves. Pm me if you do and I will open the game for your changes. Speak now, for in Elvenhome nothing changes!
