However I noticed a serious error in part 1. On turn 10, after moving into the the third stronghold space, an encounter happens. However, the text skips right into the battle with the opposing champion.
Somehow (through the magic of MS Word) it appears I accidently deleted the combat sequence on the third stronghold space. I had written everything down, so I can't fill in the missing part from memory. I've edited the entry and we'll just have to move on to part 2...
The battle was supposed to be with K'Hutek, not Harkin. I've decided to replay the game, and have deleted the whole sequence. I will repost the corrected version at the beginning of part 2.
