It had been a little while since our Iron Hills saw the table and Andrew wanted to try his Rivendell and Galadriel list again so- to the table we go! We've stopped doing the veto system and instead just going with what the dice Gods decree. We rolled reconnoiter which, as we are natural sprinters and wasted on cross country, I was not excited about; but I am grateful we played this scenario to see it play out. I would have absolutely veto'd this and missed out on a doozy of a game.
I "won" the roll off, and had to deploy first. My Ballista went down, as did my Captain. Dain, however, rolled a 3 and was able to stay off table- I was thankful for that so I could try to react to Andrew's deployment with my main force.
