Your right I forgot about that. Thank you.
Well hopefully some great silvan and dunedain allies then =)


From the spoiler article:
 

Finally, The Three Trials introduces a new Spirit hero, as well as three copies of each player card. Fans of Middle-earth’s Elves will be pleased to find two new Elven allies, one Noldor and one Silvan, as well as events and attachments that promote the cycle’s new Silvan subthemes. You’ll also find a handful of cards that further support the game’s Secrecy keyword and decks that can keep their Threat at twenty or lower.


Only 1 Silvan ally :(
 

As part of The Ring-maker cycle, The Three Trials doesn’t focus too heavily on any one player theme. While it lends greater strength to the Silvan mechanics that lead developer Caleb Grace outlined in his introduction to the cycle, the Adventure Pack also supports a wide range of player themes and mechanics that include the Noldor, Dúnedain, and Scout traits; increased interaction for multiplayer games; and the popular Secrecy mechanic that rewards players who can keep their Threat at or below twenty.


Not sure about Dunedain allies, but there will certainly be something for Dunedain. Also I really wonder what the card(s) for the Scout trait will do. We have several Scout allies, some of which aren't played often; giving a good attachment/event for them could bring them out of binders.

As for Rumil, I honestly can't read that number. I can guarantee it's not #50 because that number is given to Spirit of the Wild in the spoiler for The Tree Trials.:
 

While your Noiseless Movement won’t help you sneak past the scenario’s Guardians, it might still help you sneak past other enemies, like the Spirit of the Wild (The Three Trials, 50)...


He could potentially come out this pack. We know he's not coming out in Trouble in Tharbad because we already have a Tactics ally spoiled there (though the trend could change to allow 2 allies in the same sphere in one pack). He could also come out in The Nin-in-Eilph or Celebrimbor's Secret, though it certainly looks like he has a 2-digit number, so it is likely either The Three Trials or The Nin-in-Eilph.

Ooooo one noldor ally as well!!! Forgot about that! Very exciting considering most of the older and more revered Elves (most of the powerful ones too!) are Noldor (Elrond, Gildor, Glorfindel, Elladan and Elrohir, Arwen, Erestor, Imladris Stargazer etc).

Ah nice the unique scout attachment is gonna be in this AP as well.

why not start a thread asking how long it will take? That will be useful!

Nah it's cool, I'd rather start a thread with a whole handful of custom rules that are essentially just what I think the ruling should have been for cards/interactions I was wrong about, I'll make sure they're not well tested or even well worded too. Then I'll add a whole bunch of other random rules which pretty much change the entire game and the way it works. Oh also one of them breaks engagement and combat entirely as well as some rules that are directly in conflict with each other. All of which is technically cheating considering about half the rules will be different from what they actually are, but that's fine, I'll keep calling two handed play and those who use official rulings I disagree with cheaters. That'll be way more beneficial and less nasty for the community than just excitedly waiting for/guessing when the new set will come out!
Thanks bro!

The better rules do not contradict. Nothing breaks the mechanisms of the game. Yes they do change much of the game, but that is sorta the point. Basically all the new rules do is make it harder.

I take it as a sign that the next article will have some very, very BIG news, and we'll all forget this lull ever happened.

It's wishful thinking at least.

Last news on June 26th.  I'm taking it as a sign that FFG has spread themselves pretty thinly.


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

Given the hunger for news around these parts, it seems like they might be better off just doing quick bite size articles more frequently instead of longer ones every now and then. Maybe just pick one card to spoil and write a paragraph about it. It wouldn't be much, but it should be fairly quick to write up and would satisfy the hungry masses!
