The clash of steel, the pulse of blood through arteries and onto the ground and snatching glory on the battlefield, the personal devastation realized when surveying the field of victory, roleplaying War.

Coming off the holiday break, last night’s game session was more shooting the breeze than miniature foes. Everyone was more intent on hanging out and chatting than getting serious about a game.
