Insane Lord of the Rings fan, mod tester, and writer of fiction (especially RPs at my staff position at 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.

Argeleb's army hastens from Cardolan, seeking first to cut off Burzolog's retreat. However, the wily troll attempts to slip from his trap, moving south into Dunland to break through Argeleb's battle lines. A bloody battle is fought: the King himself is gravely wounded, and all his guards perish, but the doughty longbowmen of the Dunedain hold off the first wave of trolls. A great host of archers threaten to wipe out Arnor's hopes of victory, but quick thinking by the tacticians lights the bone-dry grass aflame, burning the orcs alive. The timely arrival of Arnor's Royal Lancers seals the fate of the orc army, which is driven back, defeated, into Rivendell, which is besieged by Carthaen. Arnor has been avenged.

Translation: I recently decided to return to A Rising Shadow after a long time playing through campaigns. My first order of business was to avenge my crushing defeat at the hands of Burzolog. Argeleb's army managed it quite nicely, although he fell in combat along with seven battalions of swordsmen. Fortunately, my base survived, so I counterattacked and destroyed them. Now that Azog and Burzolog are bottled up in Rivendell, I merely need to finish them off...
