MyNeighbourgTrololo, am I wrong, or it is you who believed Grima hero will come and noone else thought so? Or is that someone else?

I'd say it was an excessive hope, but yes, I prayed for Grima to be a hero.

Thanks for the head's up.  And for those that don't know, Matthew Newman is he who was Feonix who created a bunch of fan quests on BGG a couple years back.

Thanks! I knew he'd gotten a job with FFG but didn't know he was working on this.

The cardboard of the rings podcast did a really good interview with him after he was hired by FFG (See episode 46). He talks about the process of designing the sets including the playtesting. It's fascinating stuff and definitely worth listening to. IIRC, the first set he had a hand in was Black Riders which was then follow by VoI and the Ringmaker cycle so we are only just now seeing his handywork (along with Caleb of course).  My gut feeling tells me that the game is getting a lot of TLC from Caleb and Matt and the upcoming AP cycle and saga sets will be the best yet.

Well yeah, we're hitting the prime--Eregion, Ost Edhil, Celebrimbor--finally getting deep in Arda history.

In preview on 14th February they said we will get VoI in less than a week and also "keep your eyes open for the next preview". Hmm, I hope we will see preview telling us that we can order VoI today or tommorow.

My local game shop had it show up today, picking it up after work, so any day now I'd assume.

Nope, just finished sleeving my cards.

 

No Ents - but there are Huron enemies.

They have a new keyword: Hinder

 

They don't get shadow cards, they don't attack, and each round they are engaged with you they remove progress from the quest/active location.

 

also, the individual huorn enemies all have effects when they are engaged with you (deals damages, raises your threat more per round, removes resources, etc).

Played through first quest last night. If you don't want spoilers, time to look away!

 

 

 

SPOILERS

 

First quest is the one that deals with Dunlendings. It's a combat-heavy quest that piles on the enemies, and the hand size and card draw hate is pretty intense. At the same time, you need a lot of willpower to quest through quickly to avoid the time effects. Grima is an objective ally that you have to shepherd to safety, so you can't use him for this scenario. It's hard to put a difficulty on it after playing it once with old decks I had laying around, but I'd say it's challenging but beatable (this is two-handed, by the way).
