Nightwatch

Filled with purpose, the forces of “Mourning Wood” rise from slumber…

My gaming opportunities have been thin on the ground for the last few years, for multiple macro and micro reasons. “Nightwatch” was one of the games that I definitely did not want to fall through the cracks.

L to R: “Kint”, “Widd” and “Teeth” (Hirelings), Guild Mancer “Helga Moneypfennig”, suspected Bretonnian spy “Derek” and Guild Blade “Byron Maiden”
