Phil played as the overlord and Mike, Alex and DARRYL played as the Heroes. The first scenario was the Ambush of Belit’s ship by Zaparovo and the Stygian wizard. The heroes soon cleared the deck of the first wave through a combination of Conan’s sword and the Thief’s Crossbow quickly acquired from the first chest. However Belit’s guards fell foul of the Archers. Soon just one guard remained!
The pirates brought on a few reinforcements and spurred on by Zaparovo they leapt aboard. Again Conan intervened and cut them down but was wounded in the process. Meanwhile the Thief used his Crossbow on the Wizard nearly killing him! So he summoned the Outer Dark Demon who pounced on Belit and her guard. Belit used an orb of power to wound the fiend, but he pounced again. This time Belit ran it through. Finally Zaparovo attacked the wounded Belit and would have finished her off had not her last loyal bodyguard intervened and blocked the blow. Zaparovo was then killed by a nasty Crossbow Bolt in the back and the Heroes were victorious.
Next the heroes entered the dark foreboding jungle ruin in pursuit of the wizard. The first time they lost quickly and felt the scenario was impossible. On the second attempt Belit distracted the Demon whilst the Thief flushed the Wizard out of his Tower and into Conan’s cunning trap. Before he realised Conan climbed the rubble onto the ramparts and despatched the Stygian outright!
Next a quick round of the Lord of the Rings dice game showed Alex winning in ultra-quick time whilst Phil and the rest floundered way behind.
