Just saw that the "evil lust" treachury card from seat of Morgoth has the art from Blind Guardian's "Nightfall in Middle Earth" concept album about Silmarillion .My signature come out of this , it's from the "time stand still at the iron hill" song, which is a song for Fingolfin. The album is one of my favorites in general !

FYI, the coupon code SHIP30 was a bigger discount for me than the one you listed, it made shipping free.

Good point. I think it depends on location, as the one I listed was cheaper than SHIP30 for me, but given how expensive shipping is on printerstudio, that one will definitely work better for some people. I'll add it to the page.

I got my whole set from Artscow. Total was 79 bucks shipped. For 3 of everything and how good the card quality was, it was a steal. I hear printerstuido is even cheaper but I haven't checked it out yet. The cards feel and look super close to FFGs. I haven't gotten to play against any of the missions yet, but I plan to soon.

 

The only minor flaw was that they cut off around the boarders a bit, nothing that makes anything unplayable, but it can be seen on some.

 

I did sent printerstuido a set of 24 custom heroes I have worked on. Really doing it to see how well they turn out. Only came to 13 shipped. I could have filled out the other slots as I paid for 54 cards but used just 24. Said they wont come in around 9 days though. Will update as I get them

 

Being inspired by the first age, I have started some second age stuff. I know 1 of the missions is the siege of baradur and the last alliance , trying to pick the other two to really capture key points in the second age.

I just got my cards from Printer Studio, and they are excellent quality. They are slightly larger than FFG's (.5 mm height and length). $40 shipped, super good price. The quality was also roughly on par with FFG's.

Today made my first attempt through OCTGN

 

Glaurung these quests where made for you ... Nightmare packs are like kindergarden compared to First Age quests. I got crashed on two of them (did not tried the first one since the deck I made on OCTGN had Finrod in it), but loved all  of them. Very nice encounter cards, very nice scenarios, very very difficult (more than 10 difficulty IMO). I tried a deck based on Finrod, Finglofin and Beren, while I was questing good, and Fingolfin with his shield was a great defender, I did not manage to have good attack power, mainly cause the quests where giving me a very hard time and did not have the resources to deploy the cards the way I wanted. Managed to place 15 damage points on Carcaroth though hehehehehe

 

I will defenitily buy the cards to play it, cause in OCTGN making decks is something that I do not like. 

 

 

Very nice work indeed, well done and plz make more quests and more cards too (especially Noldor warrior allies)

 

 

PS: Can you plz explain me how the pit thing works, I read the quest stages but did not quite get it

Thanks for trying out First Age and I'm glad you like it! The quests are definitely quite difficult, but are eventually beatable once you get the hang of everything (to give you an idea, I designed the things, and I still lose pretty often!). 

 

There will definitely be some more quests and player cards on the way. I'm designing the first "expansion" right now, and I hope to have it out around Octoberish. 

 

As for the pit area, the gist is that the players can choose one hero to be placed there at the start of a game. Whoever gives up that hero may immediately replace that hero and adjust their starting threat accordingly. That area is off limit for player cards, similar to the riddle area in the Dungeons Deep quest. When the counters run out on Eyes in the Dark, the Devouring Werewolf is placed into the pit area and engages in combat with the hero in the pit and Finrod objective. If the hero placed there is destroyed, then you lose. 

 

If you haven't checked out, give a look at the First Age rules, which explains some of the stuff in more detail. Hope this helps!

Thanks Raven. I have read the rules already. You explanation make things more clear, i think my problem might be that since i am not that familiar with octgn, making pit areas etc seems a bit strange. When i get the cards i am sure i will understand how it works.

Have tried the seat of morgoth quest yesterday again. I got much further (tweaked my deck a lot) but still lost. I like them very much. Yet again the fact i do not have them on hand and try to make deck only with octgn does not help me.

Really great work. First age is my favourite and recently read sillmarillion for the third time :), now rereading unfinished tales. Well done :)
