I do remember, that's why I'm curious what it's status was on the upcoming page at that time to judge whether it's realistic that we would receive the long dark at this years gencon whilst currently "at the printers"

 the long dark

 

Do you mean the Road Darkens? It might be on the display with some cards shown (probably the ones already spoiled), but not on sale yet. Just an option.

the saga expansion wasn't available for a month or so after gencon for everyone else (same with the AP) - i'm sure they will have stock there.

This is what i meant; a release like BR was last year, with the realease for the masses following months after.
Sorry i wasn't more clear, i had no time to post really.

I would not be surprised we'll get another surprise release on a AP too there.

I cant remember the exact status, but i believe that blood of gondor was at the printers last year during Gen Con. Thats why it was such a surprise to go there and see it available for purchase! I think we were all exoecting to see Black Riders there...they may have even announced that in advance.

Hmm... I wonder if there'll be any preview article or just a release one...

I would be surprised if we saw another article for the 3 trials (that wasn't just the release article). I would think we're long over due for a "the road darkens" preview however (not to derail the topic)

Wow 10 days away, after the wait for dunland trap this is awesome. Can't wait for full spoilers for three trials on the release date!! (Hopefully sooner =p) We know very few player cards for three trials so this is a bit more exciting. What silvan ally will we get!? Will we get another ent? Or perhaps another mount? We will soon see!!

The spoiler article for The Antlered Crown specifically said that no ents would be released before Celebrimbor's Secret.

I once shot an arrow through the pupil of a pig's eye from 300 yards away! Sadly, I was aiming for a different pig.

A FFG created Dunlending or Southron "renegade" type hero who has renounced the cause of Sauron would be really great IMO. At least more interesting than these rather generic warrior girls we've been getting as of late.

I haven't really analyzed the numbering in each cycle, which pack do we expect Rumil to show up in? The spoiler looked like he's number fifty something.

Well, my hopes are based not on empty feelings. On some spoiled flavor text of the cycle, Dunlandling shaman guides our heroes. So I hoped he could show up as an ally or even a hero. Or someone from his tribe to aid us, or something.

The hero in each set usually has the lowest player card number.  Gwaihir is listed as #59 in the spoiler for Trouble in Tharbad, so if Rumil is 5x than he should be in The Three Trials.  But since the encounter card numbers come after the player cards I don't think that Rumil can be numbered in the 50s.  And, of course, the card numbers have been wrong before. (Which is a long way of saying, "we don't know".)


Nearly all of my comments are from the perspective of the single handed solo player.
