Ben Good and I actually played four games of Nemoroth. Two ended early due
to oversights, but below you will find the score of the first game we
played.  The notation is a combination of mine and Mousambani's, but
should be readily interpretable.

This game was moderated by Ralph Betza, who let us know right away when we
had done something wrong.  You will not see the illegal moves that had to
be redone.  The major problem with illegal moves involved the Basilisk and
Ghast, and forgetting that their powers affect the owning player as much
as the opposing player.

This is obviously not an example of fine play, and is presented as is.

Ben's comment:
After 16...Be1~d2, 17.Gd1 still wins the game.  I can play 17...Bf2 which
in fact is forced), but the B will still be compelled on move 18 and will
have no moves left.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Unordered list item
  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>

  1. An ordered list item.
  2. A second ordered list item with the same number.
  3. A third ordered list item.
