To those who don't like Leaf Brooch because they don't play with a lot of events: Even if you don't play many events, there are some "essential" events - like A Test of Will - which are great to be played for free. Also Secrecy depends on low threat, and most of the best cards for keeping threat low are events - most notably The Galadhrim's Greeting. If you can play TGG for 2 or less, you are golden. Not to mention, you can recycle these events (as mentioned by someone else earlier).

I am a little disappointed with Noiseless Movement, though. They make the card look really good for secrecy, by giving the card back if you're at secrecy level, but if you are at or below 20 threat, few enemies will engage you, so you'll have less use for this card. So this card is actually more useful outside of secrecy decks it seems.

I once shot an arrow through the pupil of a pig's eye from 300 yards away! Sadly, I was aiming for a different pig.

Going back to female heroes: I usually don't mind when FFG makes their own heroes, as long as I like their ability. But we still haven't seen any made up female heroes in Leadership OR Tactics. I mean, I know they're the more "masculine" spheres, but it would still be interesting to see what they would be like. The only person in LOTR lore that might qualify for this would be a Tactics Eowyn, which I am really looking forward to in the future.

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

Guess it'll be good for all those enemies with 10 to 20 threat.  And there are plenty!

This is very true and a good point, still I think it will have its place. Secrecy decks, especially in solo are often light on combat.. so stopping some of those "engage no matter what" type low threat enemy cards is still powerful, but yeah.. it is sorta trying to trick you into thinking it is better than it is, though I think if you are failing secrecy stopping a scary engagement isn't a bad idea.. spesh if your deck has weak combat, and it also gives you a turn and a resource round to get secrecy back.

we still haven't seen any made up female heroes in Leadership OR Tactics. I mean, I know they're the more "masculine" spheres, but it would still be interesting to see what they would be like.


I completely agree on this.. What was that chick that killed the witch king? Wasn't her whole deal that she was a warrior madian type thing? She was also a lord's daughter so could fit nicely into leadership.. maybe even tactics.

That was none other than Eowyn - Spirit hero extraordinaire. I, too, would love to see a Tactics or Leadership version of her.

While browsing on Facebook, I've seen some news. 
 
It looks there are some leaked spoilers about Ring-maker Cycle. The names of the rest Adventure Packs:
 
1. - The Dunland Trap
2. - The Three Trials
3. - The Antlered Crown
4. - Throuble in Tharbad
5. - The Nin-in-Eilph
6. - Celebrimbor's Secret
 
Is this the real thing or somebody is just having some wishes?!   :D

I disagree. Pippin told me he never got killed because he had a lack of resources, but because of that nasty 5 threat orc who wad taking off his head. Hobbits also have stuff like Good Meal that enables them to play events for a low cost. So while I think the brooch is ok and fine (it is indeed a good card), it's Noiseless Movement that deals with one of the major weaknesses of a secrecy deck. The fact alone that it allows you to send everyone to the quest is absolutely amazing. It's a gamesaver and one of the few cards that gives a you more flexibility when planning your turn.

 

Of course, the synergy between these two new cards makes both of them even more aweseome! :wub:

Well, that would clear up who the "Ring-Maker" is...

Pretty eowyn, yeah! (Merry not so, :P). And the idea (Eowyn get more attack when she defends and Merry can ready, for example, Eowyn) is very good and coherent with the thematic side.

 

Sure, congratulations.

I totally understand that secrecy decks need to avoid enemies and Noiseless Movement is a great card, but less than 20% of enemies have an engagement of 20 or less and most of those are relatively weak, so most of them you can just deal with instead of using this card. Obviously, there are still plenty of situations where you'd want to get an enemy back into the staging area or prevent them from coming down. There are actually a pretty large number of cards that fulfill this purpose:

 

- Out of Sight: enemies engaged with you can't attack. You can still kill them off yourself

- Risk Some Light: keep these enemies from ever showing up

- O Elbereth! Gilthonial!: chump block with an ally and then just send it away. The requirement to block probably makes this card kinda suck for this

- Out of the Wild: Same theory as Risk Some Light, except more permanent removal

- Hobbit-Sense: You can't get attacked, like Out of Sight.

- Take No Notice: Don't let them engage

- Advance Warning: Pretty limited because it's practically impossible to build a secrecy deck with all Lore, but Pippin + Mirlonde + one of a few other heroes will at least get you started below the threshold.

- Spirit Pippin: Everyone hates him, but his ability works just fine for this with enough threat reduction.

- A Light in the Dark: been around for quite a while and is much more affordable with Leaf Brooch.
