Songs with Twist Endings - It's always cool to listen to the lyrics of a song and discover that it's not at all what it seemed to be. For most of the song, you are led to believe t...
|The PanEuropeans (top/left) went for a static defense with three howitzers centered on the towns in the corner of the board.|
|Most of the early action was on the left flank, as a force of Combine GEVs sweeps towards a lightly defended town.|
|The PanEuropean Ogre charges over the bridge to try to pick off some Combine units, but gets mauled for its efforts. The attack on the left flank went really, really slowly as a few squads of infantry (which are tripled in defense in towns) held off five attacking GEVs.|
|The town was eventually turned to rubble and the GEVs swept right, and the PanEuropean MK-III retreated back over the river, to hide under the cover of the howitzers.|
|The Combine player begins his big push.|
|This is what we like to see. Ogre vs. Ogre, nose to nose.|
|This was the last picture I was able to take before my camera died. Short version; the Combine force off to the left circled around the woods and attacked at the same time as the red Ogre did. Since the PanEuropean Ogre had gotten pretty damaged, and there were almost no PE units left besides the howitzers, the battle was won by the Combine.|
|The Combine attackers (top) split their forces; GEVs on one flank, an Ogre and a pair of GEVs on the other. The PanEureopan defenders (bottom) are more spread out, with their Ogre in the middle.|
|The Combine GEVs (top) come around the flank and start sweeping everything before them.|
|The defending GEVs and light GEVs try to pepper the attacking Ogre (in red), but inflict relatively little damage.|
|The Combine player through more ones on his attack rolls than I have ever seen in any game. It was unreal. (In Ogre, you want to roll high. Ouch.)|
|The expected duel of Ogres never materialized. They danced around each other, but never had the toe-to-toe slug match I thought would happen.|
|Most of the defending buildings and units destroyed, the Combine player retreats and wins a comfortable victory on points.|
|Best... yarmulke... EVER|

Coming into possession of a treasure map that purports to lead to a cache of treasure hidden by the famous brigand and adventurer Morvan Blackmane, your party sets off on the journey, which lasts several days and is relatively uneventful.
When you arrive at the destination, a stream crossing unmistakably marked on the map, you realize something’s very, very wrong. There shouldn’t be a village here!NOTE: If you were one of the many people who backed the Kickstarter campaign for A Curious Volume of Forgotten Lore, you don't need to buy this adventure. You should have already gotten a coupon code for a free copy. This is the first bonus reward for the backers. This is also one of the bonus rewards for backers of the Dwimmermount Kickstarter campaign, so if you were a backer, you should hold off buying it, too.
