General Banal and the Plot to Assassinate d'Elrond


 “It will be as you wish General sahib”.

The swarthy otterman clutched the bag of coin tightly in his gnarled paw.

“None shall survive”.

The Elf, clad in mufti, to avoid attention, considered this and spoke.

“While I do not doubt your sincerity, mon ami Wesil, I must witness these events myself. This troublesome counter revolutionary slipped from my grasp once before. It will not happen again”.

“As you say, so shall it be done, sahib. My companions are ready and we will strike tonight”.

Not for the first time, General Banal reflected on the doleful state of affairs that had brought him from the Rivière de Couenne all the way to the Gobla Kush in Inji. Curse all dwarves and their baked goods! The raid on Ettinheim in Beerdan had ended poorly*. Only the intervention of the Inn’s dwarven bakers and their…their…creations…had allowed that cursed Royalist Louie Paon Confit, Duc d'Elrond to escape capture and the date with the firing squad he so richly deserved.

This scenario featured in this year's Orcs in the Webbe Advent Calendar, and you may read the rest of it here .

Also of particular note, Craig Andrews wrote a cracking scenario featuring our Hero, Giglamps getting up to shenanigans in Afri ...

As well as an absolutely splendid Valonian Word Search .

Being an Advent Calendar, there are naturally some 22 other entries for various game systems and I should think you will all find something of interest if you head on over there, uh, here .

And with a tip of the hat,

Happy New Year All,
And thanks for stopping by!
