Chris Palmer I was only able to get up to Fall-In for a short while this year, arriving Friday afternoon, and leaving Saturday afternoon. Here are some shots I took of games being run in the HAWKs room. I wasn’t able to get a lot of photos, as I was busy running my own games both Friday night (Battle of Five Armies) and Saturday morning (Warring Roses in the Mist [War of the Roses]).
Fall-In marked the official release of our “Bear Yourselves Valiantly” rules for fantasy, ancients and medieval mass combat. The release was a big success with our publisher, On Military Matters, selling out of all he copies they brought to the con.
