A few new player cards spoiled. Not much, though. But a nice secrecy touch.

And several encounter ones aswell:

And right here we can see a sneak peek at new spirit ally, which costs a hefty 3 but is not unique:

The Leave brooch is interesting. Like that its a neutral attachment. Certain decks could get quite a boost. (and I see that mono sphere's haven't been left behind either... i'm guessing this is intentional).

 

I wonder if there will be any similar secrecy giving attachments that will work for allies or attachments well?

might be, but the article is correct... . being able to play 1 cost cards for free is pretty bonkers.

The Antlered crown? I would've expected that in Game of Thrones, not here. :P

Who is she? "A new spirit hero", but doesn't look elven to my eyes.

The front of AP boxes has typically been Encounter/Quest card art.

My gosh, Arwen has aged a bit from the art work on her ally card, but it looks like we will be getting her as the new spirit hero. ha ha.

But seriously, my guess is she is Dunedain, possibly the hero card. If it is it's probably another FFG created hero.

Yes, I'm thinking the Adventure Pack artwork is a Dunedain ranger, perhaps an ally or objective ally for the quest.  

 

I wish that Raven's Guard was a Tactics Ally.  That guy looks freakin' awesome!  I really couldn't be happier with the direction this cycle has taken early on: Elves, Dunedain, and Secrecy... Three very underdeveloped themes in the game so far.  This particular pack also looks like it will add some amazing player cards for Hobbit themed decks.  I can't wait!

She looks too noble to be an enemy. If she is the new hero, she will almost definitely be made up. I don't think Magali would change her drawing if it was Arwen.

Playing an intense scenario, on the last stage, right when you notice you've been playing with two Bofurs the whole time.

Classic.

 

But in other games the Dunlendings have been portrayed as very animistic and superstitious, so I bet the antler crown is to do with that. Hopefully it summons some kind of Valar orbital strike to be used in later encounters. :lol:

The broach on the box art... Boy I hope that's not Arwen.

Edit: Here's the thing that I can't get out of my head. I think it unlikely that we get two female spirit heros in the cycle. So if that's not Arwen then maybe we're not getting her. :(

i bet it's quest card art (following previous patterns) but, it certainly could be a player card.

 

if memory serves, the AP box art has only been a player card's art three times (Haldir, Elladan, Gondorian Discipline). not that that really means anything! :D

not much to go off player card wise, but the quest itself sounds really fun! Boss enemies are always fun to play against

Yeah, my bet it is a Objective-Ally... meaning it could become a player card latter (or a enemy like Lord Acelron)... Also I think it is defiantly a Duradain, reminds me of Beravor even.

I really hope FFG have started to realize it is fine to make up some characters of there own. We could do with a few more girls in this game.

I hope It is not Arwen on the pack. But I do not like that star she has.

The quest: sounds like some fairytale. Find 3 guardians and take their keys to get an artifact. But I like that each guardian uses Time X.

The release made a big deal about the Leaf Brooch and how useful it would be. Now, I'm a newbie and I'm still making my way through Shadows of Mirkwood, but is secrecy THAT useful? How likely/easy is it that you can keep your threat below 20?

I love Spirit so can't wait to see the info on the new ally! (Even though it will be ages until I get there!)
