Two sessions done!

This Saturday evening the fella's came over for our second C&C in middle earth game. No one died, we role played for more than half the evening, fun was had. I could say more but that might bore me, and I should have taken pictures. Oh well.

We started off in the southern Gondor city of Dol Amroth.

And I wove the first adventure from this book in to a tale of personal redemption and political intrigue.

It was fun.
