Thanks for posting!

 

Very, very nice overall. Gondor got "only" that one boost card but it is a good one. And the Leadership ally is okay, if a bit repetitive in its function (similar to Errand-rider and Envoy of Pelargir).

 

When the Black Riders came out, I was happy to have Dagger of Westernesse for Dúnhere, now he gets his proper weapon, it is very similar but more thematic (and even better in most of the cases with Dúnhere).

 

I think we have the "cavalry" mechanics you were mentioning, Rich, here with "Forth Éorlingas". I mean their take on it...

 

I do not understand the Dwarf ally. First I would half expected such an effect with Spirit (where Emery utterly shines) but with Lore? I am probably missing a combo here, but the effect seems quite bad (but the stats are solid, if not on par with Hammersmith).

 

Then comes the Cache, it is meant to combo with the above, I see. It seems rather situational but it is nice to have an event that can be used in one of two ways - first of the kind, I believe.

ps: Pelargir Ship Captain can basically replace Guard of the Citadel (I've used to run him up till now for the lack of Gondor Leadership allies), he is the same with the response (he lacks the Warrior trait, not that it matters for now, hopefully soon).

Okay, one more from me, sorry, the initial excitement is usually too great to resist.

 

I am thinking about the Ered Nimrais Prospector. He could of course go rather nicely with the Hidden Cache and Gildor Inglorion, but it is hard to set up. A good thing about the response (which you of course need not trigger) is that it shuffles the deck; this is becoming increasingly important in my mono-Lore decks, and it will be great for Scroll of Isildur - which puts the event onto the bottom of the deck. If you have a really strong card draw engine, this can be nice; though you still "lose" the two cards for the effect of the Prospector.

Ah ... I had predicted on another topic the Forth Eorlingas event but it does not have exactly the same action as I thought

 

I'm very happy with the cards

Well, from what we have from Voice of Isenguard also

 

Now Dunhere will be able to attack with the spear in the staging area with 4 ATT , and ready with the horse if he kills something to make a second attack with 3 ATT against an enemy engaged with you , and Eomer also who can attack with 4 using the spear, 6 if another character leaves play and ready again with the horse ... suddenly Rohan seem very deadly

No, Dúnhere with the Spear attacks for 5; and for 7 with two copies!

Does the Tactics event 'Forth Eorlingas!' allow Rohan characters to combine to attack? I would expect not, which is a shame, but entirely understandable.

 

Very nice cards overall. I am enjoying the development of different strategies at the moment, with lots of cards allowing for manipulation of encounter draws and how combat works.

As it is written, it only works for heroes. Which really makes it limited in use, but still potentially good.

That Spirit Tactics Rohan deck is looking pretty good. I'll be glad to dust off my old SoM Rohan cards to make an incredible new deck!

 

Also, as always, i'll be really glad to see images of the cards to see the art.

The tactics cards in this pack look ace!
Specially the power of forth eorlingas in a multiplayer game with several Rohan heroes around the board seems deadly.

Lay of nimrodel is the first song card that's an event I think. Feels more proper so.
And a nice card it is in a combo with parting gifts from another player with SoG and lots of tokens to spend for a massive quest push. (Yes I only play multiplayer, so my combo set-up thinking usually starts like this)

Then hidden cache....I am so exited what kind of combos people will come up with here, as it is neutral and can be played in any deck. I must say, because it is so multi purpose, I expect some great feats with it!

Argh, I mistyped! :)

I meant, can multiple heroes attack the same character at the same time? However it works, it's a mighty exciting card, coupled with the spear! Would a ranger/Rohan deck work well now?

Yes it would ;)

I am very grateful for Spear of the Mark since Dúnhere is my favourite hero and attacking staging area/direct damage is my favourite strategy.

I hope these tactics cards are just introduction of this technique and it will be developed in "The Ring-maker".

Hidden Cache + Zigil Miner + Imladris Stargazer = POWERHOUSE

 

Line up 2 of them with the Stargazer, call them and dig them out with the Miner, then rake in 6 resources (and in Spirit sphere, too).

 

P.S. Use the prospector as part of an outlands deck where you can can use Men of the West to grab up swaths of your discarded allies at a time.  It's a great form of card draw as long as you can pull from your discard pile.

Nothing blowing my mind here but it is cool to be able to use Dunhere now. I was hoping for more Gondor stuff but Visionary Leadership is good. Now I really want to make a Rohan/Gondor two-player deck strategy.

I suppose Hidden Chace works even with "King under the mountain". Am I wrong?

 

EDIT: and with "A very good tale"

wow, indeed ... I tend to believe that Rohan will become what they should be , a very strong trait that can kill enemies charging with no fear

 

after all

who gives a #&$@ about outlands  :P  :lol:    (kidding a bit)
