 I enjoy reading about the minor characters in The Lord of the Rings, and I'd love to use them in the card game.

There are 2 minor elves that I'd like to see as allies:

Galion - Thranduil's butler in Mirkwood - possibly Leadership sphere, probably low stats with an interesting ability.  Something like:

Galion - cost 2 Leadership Ally, 0/0/1/3, Action: Exhaust Galion and discard a Leadership resource (or a Leadership card from hand) to ready a Silvan or Dwarf character.

Lindir - a Rivendell elf who listened to Bilbo's song in The Fellowship of the Ring.  Probably Lore sphere with low stats and an interesting ability probably relating to songs?  Something like:

Lindir - cost 2 Lore Ally, 1/0/0/3, Each time a player plays a song on a hero, chose 1 (or if that hero is a Hobbit, do all 3): Heal that hero, add a resource to that hero, or that player draws a card.  Limit once per round.

 

Anyway, since we don't seem to be getting many spoilers for upcoming cards lately, let's just make a couple of our own.  :)

 

How would you design these guys?

Galion

Spirit (get it?)

Action- exhaust galion to give all elf characters +1 attack and -1 defense until the end of the round

Interesting idea, rich, but I might make it a Combat Action: and add some qualifier like "(play only before any enemies attack during the combat phase)." Otherwise there isn't really a downside; you can just trigger the action after defending. But if you had to take that -1 defense before dealing with enemy attacks, I think it would create a really neat trade-off mechanic that would require more strategic play.
