Just out of curiosity... what Grima objective ally does? Does he has the same art as hero?

By the way, thanks you for shedding some light on huorns... but there is a spoiled trechery which makes every huorn make an immediate attack... and you just said they don't attack. Or they don't attack on their own, just as a cause of trechery?

I'll try to spoil a couple of encounter cards tonight, if people are interested. The Grima objective has different art, but the same stats (if i remember correctly). He has "Action: Draw a card." and you lose the game if he leaves play.

I do like the art better. It's more of a close-up, but he looks pretty damn evil. Between his appearance and the name Wormtongue, he's practically shouting "villain" from the rooftops. Get it together, heroes!

Just picked up my copy.  Not too much to add at this time except that there is a story line in the rule set with the obligatory "DO NOT READ PAST THIS POINT UNLESS YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE QUEST."

 

So I didn't.  The first quest is a fight at the Fords of the Isen and I'll try to record a round report over the weekend.  I'm probably going to use my elves deck first and may not include any new cards.

 

One last comment is that the overall card art is very good.

I have a question for all of you that have the expansion.

 

Has the card Legacy of Númenor, the leadership one with Doomed, a value of Doomed 3 or 4? 

 

I have a copy of VoI and those cards have Doomed 4, but on the preview here at FFG it reads Doomed 3.

 

Also, I understand that there are copies of encounter cards that have the golden circle for "normal to easy mode", but not all the copies of that same card must have the golden circle, am I correct?

yes, the card is now Doomed 4 - probably a good change, IMHO.

 

and yes, you don't always remove every single copy of a card - sometimes just a couple - for easy mode (or even for nightmare mode) - only cards with the gold ring.

Looking forward to receiving my copy of this, it looks great. I hope the subsequent cycle is better than Against the Shadow, as I found that dull compared to Dwarrodelf.

Contacted my local web-store: because of revolution prices went sky-high and delivery time will be measured in moths... yeah.

One question (I dont have got the expansion till monday): the players that have you played VoI, are these new adventures harder than Heirs of N? Maybe less or same dificulty?

I've now played the first quest four times. The first two times were with my elves deck and it got destroyed. The enemies are powerful and can come at you in bunches. My elves ramp into a great late game, but need to lay low for the first few turns and weren't able to do it here. So I switched back to my Glory, Strider, Tactomir deck and am two for two, but the second one was really close.

I would put the first quest, rated a 5, about equal to Into Ithilien. I'm going to make a session report now, but it will take a little while.
