Faramir peered through the viewing-glass across the green expanse. Among the clumped bushes were... Haradrim, and... yes, another large group, tucked almost into a fold of the hill. Orcs.

‘They’d wait... pick over the remains...’

He shuddered... ‘The Haradrim’s... or his?’

Crouching, he continued holding the glass to avoid conversation as he planned his attack. He must move against them with stealth...

“Hurry up!”

Boromir - always impatient! Faramir ignored him.

Suddenly - with a great cry - Boromir fell forward, clutching an arrow against his chest...

Faramir gasped, horrified.

He shot upright from the war-gaming table. “Boromir! You’ve upset the pieces - again!”
