Fog on the Barrow Downs   Leave a comment

We started the day in true Hobbit style with a picnic at our local Long Barrow on the edge of the Downs. Fantastic place. Good had never visited a Barrow before so very informative.

The hobbits cluster together in the Fog. The 4 wights leave their barrows in search of sacrifices.

Merry wanders off of course in the fog and is swiftly paralyzed and dragged back to the NW barrow.

Meanwhile the other 3 Wights descend onto the the 3 Hobbits who all successfully resist their dark spells. They then close to combat but are driven off by the brave halflings!

Good rolled a 6 for the First chance of Tom’s arrival and then the same for Goldberry later. Tom banishes the NW Wight and sets to Renew the hapless Merry. Just in time before the sacrificial knife could be plunged!

With Tom and Goldberry both on the map and the fog lifted things were looking better for the Hobbits. Despite the best efforts of the Wights to slay Frodo and Sam and drag the now paralysed Pippin away.

Goldberry and Tom soon were able to wake Pippin (Renew) and then distract the Wights whilst Frodo, Sam and Merry made their escape. Yes that is indeed a wound that Sam managed to place on a Wight with a mighty blow from his frying pan!

Well done Good player yet again. Safe and sound and ready for Bree.
