Battle of the Black Gate First Impressions

Battle of the Black Gate First Impressions

Mar 24, 2017

Update 20 starts by covering the fears of the Host of the West as they make their way toward Mordor. The story quickly moves into what I think is the best session play yet.  Not only do we get to play as Gollum, but we get a really cool foreshadowing of the dangers to come. While the Epic Story starts strong, the side quests are not really anything to write...

Pelennor Fields Fully Voiced

Pelennor Fields Fully Voiced

Nov 19, 2016

Earlier this year I began a fully-voiced video series through Pelennor Fields.  43 episodes later, I finished the series.

March of the King – First Impressions

Oct 29, 2016

Update 19 starts right where Pelennor Fields left off.  Players have to deal with the immense loss that is fully realized after the battle’s end.  One item players have to clean up in particular creates a pretty eerie quest. While the cleanup is still going on, players take part in assembling The Council of the Captains.  I found that throughout the new...

Last year I began a fully-voiced video series through Minas Tirith.  57 episodes later, I finished the series.
