Tower of Ecthelion Vs Rivendell (Contest of Champions)
|A fell light falls upon the field, allowing the knights to |
run circles around the rocks and shrubbery
|One such knight gets over excited and is thrown off his steed from a |
mistimed jump. The elf captain orders his warriors in a defensive position.
|The Knights charge regardless, smashing into the elven phalanx|
|Leaving one knight and elf spliced in two, while the captain attacks hither|
and thither unable to push the mighty elven shields aside.
|So he urges his men into them again|
|The elven captain laughs in the faces of them while stabbing the |
nearest rider in the chest. A knight also manages to kill one of
the more resistant elves.
|The elves take advantage of the clearly inept men, springing on them |
unaware, but to little effect.
|The men of Gondor retain their composure and attack all of the elves|
|And the knight captain cuts down one elf, as his warriors |
bring down two more. The elf captain seeing only half his warriors
left, slices through a man.
|The Knights are ordered to halt the advances of the elf captain, |
as their captain cleans up the other elves
|But they can only oppress one of the elves from their courage|
|"Stand fast" calls the elven captain, although it is probably not needed, |
then they are swiftly surrounded by knights
|Which is the last order from the captain as three lances puncture his flesh.|
|The knight captain must kill this elf or his men will ask questions |
about his leadership, having only killed one elf so far
|But no questions shall be asked yet as his sword splits the elf in two|
And with that last kill, the Gondorian captain draws level with the Elf. Making it a draw between forces:
Tower of Ecthelion = 15
Rivendell = 7
Gondor captain = 2 (2)
Elven Captain = 2 (2)
The Elves were smart to defend the back of the field, otherwise the knights would have trapped and killed them easily with their lances.
However the knights couldn't perform well as the higher fight value and shielding from the elves prevented them winning fights and using lances at all therefore halting a destructive charge.
But this only worked for so long, as the back wall trapped the elves and could be more easily cut down.
So the knights will face the Isengard raiders next but before that, revenge battles:
The Easterlings against Cirth Ungol in Domination
and Théoden's host against the serpent horde in a contest of champions.
