"No, Anná, you must set your pieces differently; here, let me show you."
Anárië fought very, very hard to keep her face smooth as Eärendil stood from his place across the low table, shifting to come to her side and adjust the pieces as he saw fit. She lifted her eyes to see Idril's sparkling with concealed laughter where she sat on a cushioned sofa near-by.
Ecthelion's daughter had agreed to come spend time with Idril and her son while Tuor conversed with the lords of the Golden Flower and the Fountain in Ecthelion's council chamber. It was not a great deal for her, considering how she enjoyed the boy's company, but she was quite amused by his eternal wish to prove he was already adept at tactics and spreading troops.
"See, you must place your open lands behind the castle line, so your garrisons may protect the people behind."
