As part of this year, Challenge CORE series the GMD VIP Members requested a series of games from their favourite settings.
The latest of these is Lord of the Rings. So following on from a Middle Earth adventure I ran for them a few years back the party returned as members of the Company of Culthain a band of rangers who hunt the enemy across the North Western Middle Earth.
This is a Campaign Playtest series with the following cast:
Ranged (Actor: Silvereagle)
Who longs to be reunited with her lover Nina another member of the company who set off with Culthain ahead of the group.
Ranged (Actor: DDMUSICGEEK)

Related to Culthain the head of the company.
Agitator (Actor: Rich)

foul-tempered loner, the lost bastard son of Lord Mirendel.
Scrapper (Actor: Eusi)

Good friends of Lofar who also is a tracker for the company, but has travelled ahead of the party with Culthaines band.
Defender (Actor: Woadan)
A mighty great axe-wielding warrior.
Cousin of Eanfled Amrodan
Travelling through the dead woods of the Yfelwood, on the southern region of the Trollshaws. The Company finally found Balsamir, her Bloodwights and her possessed personal guard.
Armed with the star of Algalaine, Ranger held it up high and the star’s light flared, striping the enemy of their immunities!
Balsamir, ordered her champions to destroy the company and bring her the star.
A mighty battle was fought between Heroes and Villain level characters! Clever use of Perks kept the Power-users dice pools low preventing them from incinerating the group with their fire and necromantic magic! Only minor damage was taken.
Until only one last villain was left, a Possessed Beorning.
Every effort was made to try and bring the ferocious warrior back from possession!
Eventually knocking him out and binding him was their only effort. Hoping to one day find a cure.
Balsamir and her host were eventually destroyed, thanks to the star of Algalaine and the threat to Tirthon finally defeated.
Our Lord of the Rings conversion test finally came to an end…
