Those of you who are watching the Juvenis Campaign at this time will not doubt have noticed that there is a total-party-kill in the offing. There has been a lot of discussion there with the party kicking themselves for having made a few improvident decisions and having bad luck.
I hate at this time to heap abuse upon the participants, but another part of me says it is like deconstructing Boris Spassky's games against Bobby Fischer. And so, coldly, I challenge the reader to explain what went wrong.
I have my own personal opinions, but I'll withold them until the combat ends (if the players don't bow out as a group in frustration ~ they seem pretty game, however).
