Hi Half - I just saw this message. Thanks for the note! I'll need to look for that western entrance the next time I make it to the throne room - sneaking past all those monsters en route to the throne is not good for my blood pressure. I'm currently trying to win with a pure-pacifist approach (zero kills) - it's very difficult, of course, but fun in a completely different way.
The game was a blast to play, and I had a lot of fun writing it up as well. Thanks for linking to my posts. Keep up the great work!
A huge "thank" for you Sir. Sil is becoming my main game, reviving sounds of dice rolling during countless nights spent in dark dungeons slaying orcs and goblins with my friends.
The balance, coherence to Tolkien's background and rule's transparency are pure jewels.
Again a big big thank you
