Insane Lord of the Rings fan, mod tester, and writer of fiction (especially RPs at my staff position at RPGFrontier.net). I'm one of those crazy people who has way too many ideas and can't keep his mouth shut. This is how I got the title of "Head Fanatic," and later Adminship, for the Narnia mod. I was formerly WoA's Secretary of Foreign Affairs, but I've resigned that post for ModDB. Recently, I've only been lurking in the corners of moddb, leaving the PR work for Wars of Arda to the more eager Neth, but you'll still see me around from time to time. I marvel, nonetheless, at the amount of respect I get around here... it's weird, but I guess all you need is a level 10 profile and a few friends.

The siege of Fornost is broken. Although badly bloodied by the enemy, and almost driven over the brink of destruction, the garrison of Fornost manages to sally forth and crush the enemy. As Azog attempts to retreat, an army led by Carthaen breaks upon his rear, spelling total defeat. In the south, Arveleg fights against the Mouth of Sauron, the former Lieutenant of Barad-dur who barely escaped from the Black Gate with his life. Arveleg is pushed back several times, but his force rallies when reinforcements from Harlindon arrive. The elves come to Arveleg's aid and drive out the enemy at last. However, the Olog chieftain Burzolog, bypassing the battle lines drawn up by Carthaen, attacks Dunland, attempting to drive his force all the way into Rivendell...

Translation: Although my walls were completely torn apart at Fornost, and I lost quite a few men, I still managed to completely rout Azog. During the same turn, I had Arveleg and Co. defend Minhiriath against the Mouth. Fortunately for me, I managed to defeat the enemy force inside my base by drumming up some Lone Towers, and eventually I mounted a counterattack of my own. Now, in Dunland, I face one of my most challenging defensive battles yet...
