Sorry about that lepto. I guess I shouldnt talk about my tactics and spirit so far then… I'm on a bit of a roll with this one. My spirit deck is a POWERHOUSE against this. Started at only 20 threat and just controlled deck the entire time.

Finally finished up today.  Before I post my scores I have to say that I had an absolute blast with this challenge and I really think we should have one of these Solo Challenges going on all the time.  That being said, here are my scores.

Leadership

Aragorn, Prince Imrahil, Theodred (31 threat)

3-0 in games

0 Assassin kills

9 pts total

Spirit

Glorfindel, Dunhere, Eleanor (20 threat)

3-0 in games

3 Assassin kills

12 pts total

A quick note on this.  I feel like I could have played this deck against any quest (except maybe Return to Mirkwood) and won.  Such a low starting threat made it able for me to have complete and total control at all times.  I had Light of Valinor, Imladris Stargazer, and Unexpected Courage at the beginning of all 3 games.  I did get super lucky by not flipping Local Trouble during staging at all though.

Tactics

Legolas, Thalin, Hama (27 threat)

3-0 in games

2 Assassin kills

11 pts total

Lore

Aragorn, Glorfindel, Bilbo (33 threat)

1-2 in games

0 Assassin kills

3 pts total

35 total points

My hero MVP was easily Dunhere.  My MVP ally was Imladris Stargazer.  MVP non-character was Hands upon the Bow.

I was on cruise control up until my Lore games.  I lost the first 2 games on the 1st leg of the quest because I just couldn't get through the battle part fast enough.  In game 3 I was able to hit a Haldir and he got me through the worst of it.  I was able to keep everyone healed up and safe from dying but I just couldn't get the strength going.

Overall this was one of the most fun and challenging experiences I've had in a while and I can't wait for the next one.

Boromir, Imrahil, Théodred for Leadership, winning 3 out of 3, killing the assassin once

Dúnhere, Eleanor, Glorfindel for Spirit, winning 3 out of 3, killing the assassin once

Glorfindel, Beravor, Aragorn for Lore, winning 3 out of 3, killing the assassin once

Beorn, Boromir, Legolas for Tactics, winning 3 out of 3, killing the assassin twice

Total 41 points.

ps: Decks made for this only, would not succeed much elsewhere but that was the idea, right?

Well done, Ana and Horus! To be honest, I'd never expected such a high win-loss ratio for this scenario. Winning 12 games in a row is superb! And yes, Ana, it was all about building decks against this scenario specifically. Would be great if both of you could post some of your decks as an inspiratioj for those who still struggle with PiP.

As the cursed board here doesn't allow me to edit the first post ATM (sometimes I can do it, but most of the time not - WTF?), I'm posting the rankings here. There are still 11 hours to go…

 

RESULTS

1) Ana - 41 points

2) son_of_horus - 35 points

3) Ileimoen - 16 points

4) Pharmboys2013 - 15 points

5) leptokurt - 10 points

6) players who don't do competions on principle

I too could not edit my post, there is a minor mistake, I didn't use Imrahil in the end, it was Aragorn instead together with Théodred and Boromir in the Leadership deck. I don't think I did anything special, maybe it was just luck. In the Leadership deck, there were all Gondorian allies available to boost attack, and later willpower with Faramir, Citadel Custodian proved much better than I had thought, he indeed works well for A Very Good Tale. I will post the decks later if anyone is interested. The Tactics had almost all the Eagles and Bofur for the willpower in the end. Spirit was good with Zigil Stargazer combo (shafted, of course) and Out of Sight to aid defence. Having 8 hero attack strength with Lore was the key for the early stages. I did use Master of Lore and many 2 and 3-cost allies there. Protector of Lórien and Asfaloth were also instrumental.

Shoot!  Haven't had the time to try this before the deadline, but I really liked the concept… PLEASE come up with some more of these as time goes on!

I also missed the deadline but I only scored 6 total anyway. This was a great idea and it did really help pass the time waiting for Steward's Fear, I hope we can do more of this in the future!

So close!!  Great job Ana I'll get you next time!  I think the next one should be against the quest in The Steward's Fear.  No prep, no knowing what's happening right away, just go and get it!!
