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.

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!”
