The sixth episode. Sorry for it being so late but the Colossal Castle Contest got in the way. Enjoy!
About this creation
The group had left the downs three days ago.
The Wanderer was scouting, and he had said that he would take them to a good place for the night.
Finally, they reached it, it was an old collection of ruins, remnants of a Cardolani watchtower.
They made camp around it, and ate a hearty meal.
Then they started to debate about which route to take.
"Which way should we go?" Beregond asked.
"I have a map of Middle-Earth," Eredain replied.
"We are halfway between Bree and the downs, and we should stop in Bree, then head to Rivindell, and go through Rohan, as my people will give us safety."
"Nay," replied Thr˛rur, "Let us go through the High Pass, that is short and safe."
"How could it be," Vertes argued, "It is full of giants!" "Nay, we should cross the pass of Caradhras, and go through the elven realm of Lorien!"
"I would sooner die then set foot in those accursed woods!" Beregond shouted. "We must go through the Gap of Rohan!" "It will be the best route!"
"No!" Suiouthoun yelled. "We should do as the dwarf says, and cross the High Pass, and travel through Mirkwood!"
"And what of your own monstrosity there!" Honeydew shouted. "What of Dol Guldur?" "We should take the Gap of Rohan, or the mines of Khazad-Dum!"
"Never!" Sigured yelled. "Let us go through the High Pass!"
The shouting and arguing went on for some time, then Kaylorn calmly said. "Brothers, it is late, and we should be resting rather then fighting amonsgt ourselves. Let us recover, and in the morning decide our course."
That setteled the debate. The travelers dozed off, with Sigurd on watch.
Later, Eredain was shaken awake and e looked up to see Sigurd. "Is it my watch?" He mumbled sleeply. "Nay," Sigured replied, "We are being watched. Ready yourself, but do it quietly."
As Sigurd woke the others. Eredain silently reached for his sword and shield.
Sigurd returned to his post, and the others waited.
Then an armored warrior wielding a sword lept over the ruined wall and charged Eredain.
Eredain blocked his sword stroke on his shield, then he paried another with his sword and slammed his shield into his opponent, and rose to his feet.
On his feet, Eredain slashed, but his opponent blocked, and he was forced backwards. Then he kicked the man's legs out from under him, and the man fell.
He dove over him, and slashed his chest open, killing him.
Then he rose to his feet and shook his head to clear it.
Sigurd was fighting another one, and he swung his axe at him, but it was blocked.
Then he kicked him in the knee, and shattered it, dropping the man onto the ground.
Then he finished him off.
Vertes was caught by surprise, and his adversary knocked him onto the ground, and prepared for the final blow.
Then Honeydew shot him, and the man tumbled over with a grunt of surprise.
Another man attacked Koen, and he parried several sword blows.
The man was good, Koen thought, but nowhere near Koen's level. He slashed his wrist open, the blocked another strike.
Then he kicked him to the ground, and stabbed him.
Then another man appeared out of nowhere, and bashed Koen with his shield. Koen fell, stunned.
But before the man stabbed him, Suiouthoun shot him in the back, and killed him.
Beregond was fighting another one on the other side of the ruins. He parried several blows with his pike, and they both danced around in a desperate battle.
Then Beregond knocked his foe off balance, and slashed his neck open with his pike.
Kaylorn could see more coming, and he wondered if they could hold them off much longer.
Then another charged, and was preparing to strike the stunned Koen.
Then Aeoth appeared from behind some rocks, and he shot the man.
The last one was attempting to flee.
The Wanderer shot him in the leg, and he fell to the ground with a scream.
"Get him quick!" Thr˛rur yelled.
To be continued...
I also included some pictures of the set, I will start doing this with all of the sets if I like them enough.
The only choice is whether or not you want to interrogate the man. I will also start doing it so that the next one is about Yapdap, then the next one is about the rest, etc.

Nice story. And the ruins are good. However I have some constructive criticism, here is a plot suggestion how about the group has to split up because something ends up happening. What I mean is that the group seems a bit large which means that there is no real struggle for the characters therefore it lacks suspense. Overall though its good.
Thanks for the comment! Your'e right, it does lack suspense. However, I have thought out a bit more of the plot and have an idea to fix it, that will most likley involve the group splitting up. BTW, what is your choice?

Plus the darkness of the photos makes it hard to see the characters, in my series I played with the light a little and I figured out a solution if you have the light source pointed up the light disperses so that you get a dark but visible photo. If you need an example check Eothain episode 6. Overall though its good.
