This is my first UEP vote. I concur w/ Jaime's logic/rationale and Wacho's latest restatement of that.   As a matter of fact, I play them that way anyway, like last night when Wacho's wounded Imrahil moved solo from Angmar to Rivendell to heal.  Yeah, I had some Bears in my hand and should...

The Grey Havens

Gents, I'm a member of the Grey Havens playgroup (San Francisco Bay Area). Many of our players have sailed Into the West for more than a year now, though there are still a handful of players dispersed in the area.  We don't play face-to-face except on a rare time when Moon is in play.  We ...
