You guys are all wrong. Get ready for the hero version of Bill the Pony!  :P

Bill the Pony cannot be replaced. He is lord of hobbit folk and calls no one master. He is almighty and all powerful. He is the beginning and the end of the black riders and the hosts of Sauron. No, Raven, there is no improving perfection. Bill the Pony  in hero form is as absurd of an idea as making a Faramir hero trying to follow Faramir the Ally's act.

Shouldn't you have to search through your deck to find him first?  :D

Yeah, lol:

Action: Add Waldo into your deck and shuffle it to give 5 resources tokens to another hero you control.

Response: After Waldo is drawn from encounter deck, add 3 resources to the resource pool of a hero you control.

What about a Galadriel hero?  She is sufficiently epic to be the only hero in the box, she'll come with a ring and a cool ability, and she makes sense with where the story is right now.  Given their focus on Silvan in the Ringmaker cycle (and her husbands appearance in the first AP pack), it would make sense to get a little Noldor love in this box.  And she's long overdue in this game.

This does sound quite plausible actually.
And I'd much rather have Galadriel as a hero too.
Hope it'll be her.
Yet the arrows do point at Gandalf me thinks...

I squirm when I think of Galadriel as Sylvan. If she's not Noldor, who is?

No she's a Noldor. Don't you worry about that.
She came from Valinor with Feanor himself if I remember correctly.
That's mrs. Noldor right there!

I agree she'd be a Noldor and hopefully bring the trait some synergy.  If she's not in this Saga Box, I'll be very disappointed if she's not in the Ring Maker Cycle.

Galadriel would be so cool!! We have to eventually get her and she better not be disappointing!  And she should be Noldor but then her and her husband Celeborn won't work that great together is would seem...  I think it could be her but I think she may instead be in the Ringmaker cycle because Gandalf does seem more fitting for The Road Darkens and he has such an important role leading The Company he'll likely be the hero.

 

P.S. if they follow the release of Elladan and Elrohir back to back maybe Galadriel would be the Spirit hero in The Three Trials with an ability to help Noldor lower threat since the current Noldor heroes all have high threat...

I just realised one thing


MEC34-cardfan-01.png

Uruk-hai archer reads: X is the number of players (or something) AT THIS STAGE.

It means, we will probably see quest similar to FoS.

Frodo will surely get separated from the rest of the Fellowship at Amon Hen, yes?

The info on the Three Trials AP says, "A new scenario places immediate pressure upon Middle-earth's heroes and their efforts while players can summon reinforcements from the Adventure Pack's new Spirit hero and player cards."

 

Im really drawn in by this little teaser sentence. What do you guys think the mechanic could be that allows us to 'summon reinforcements'? Galadriel has her ring, but Im not sure exactly what it does. Im assuming it wouldnt be a spirit Vilya clone, but maybe something like it?

Well, after you foumd this, its seems strange to me that you missed that part of the text on Fallen Into Evil:

"Attach to a hero and move it to the first player's staging area".
