Elves was lead by Sverre Reikvam.
One of the best Norway players.

I’m going first.

Deployment :

Left Idrians prey at left Halberdiers.
Right Idrians prey at right Halberdiers.

Rhupert gave Pathfinder to Harbinger.
She ran behind the wall.
Vilmon came b2b with her.
Rest of the army also ran.

Kaelyssa cast Blur on right Halberdiers.
Two Halberdiers units said Shield Wall and came forward.
BE and Stormfall Archers started shooting towards Idrians.

End of 1st round :

Monk said +4 DEF and came to contest the left zone.
Another Monk also said +4 DEF and came b2b with the left flag.
Idrians shot a lot of Halberdiers.
The Book said “no kd/stationary”.
Harbinger used her FEAT.
Two Idrians came to contest the right flag.

Sverre tried to kill the Monk in his zone and Idrians contesting his flag.
Unfortunately, he did not succeed.
Kaelyssa cast Phantom Hunter on herself and on Hydra.
They tried to kill Harbinger, but nothing terrible happened.
Kaelyssa also said FEAT.
Fane Knight came to contest the left flag.

0-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

So, Kaelyssa is staying on 0 focus.
She looks very inviting.

1. The Monk, after one Side Step can hit her.
2. The Champion, after Righteous Vengeance movement, can hit her with all his attacks.
3. Four Idrians can just walk and shot at her (one big CRA will be the best option).
4. At the end, Harbinger can cast 2x Cataclysm at Kaelyssa (blast pow 8).

All in all, I had 78% for success.
Unfortunately, my dices were not on my side this time.
The CK attempt was unsuccessful.
Kaelyssa survived on few hp.

In the next turn, the inevitable happened.
Sverre just shot Harbinger.

I lost the game by CK.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • I have no idea what to say..
    Just bad luck.
  • I’m glad, that Harbinger can play vs Kaelyssa.
    It was the second time my Harbinger met her.
    I still think it is a good match for Harbinger.
  • We both knew, that sooner or later I will win on the scenario.
    That’s why the Elves tried CK.
  • Sverre, thanks for the game 😉
    It was great to meet you again.
    I hope for a rematch in the future!
