What is your opinion on multiple versions of characters? So far we only have a few: Gandalf, Aragorn, Glorfindel, Bilbo, and Boromir.
Gandalf, Aragorn and Bilbo are of course "main characters" in the lore. Boromir, despite his relative prominance in the film, only really has more than a passing mention in four chapters of the book: The Council of Elrond, The Ring Goes South, The Great River, and The Breaking of the Fellowship. Glorfindel is only on a couple of pages, at least in LotR's proper (I know he features in other sources). And yet, I think it's great that FFG's has printed multiple copies of these characters, and I'd love for them to make more, as the ones out so far haven't captured every facet of the characters. Tactics and Leadership fit Boromir best (by far), but could there be a Lore version, representing him at the Council of Elrond when he shares a lot of information? A Tactics and Spirit Aragorn make sense, and I don't think there is anything wrong with them making another Leadership and Lore one. I'd also like to see Ally versions of some of the heroes, and certainly heroes of allies, especially Gandalf (my favorite character). They already did it with Beorn. I wonder how they could balance a Gandalf hero, however, as his ally version is so strong. Perhaps they will give us Gandalf the White as a hero and keep Gandalf the Grey as an ally?
How many versions of a character would be too many? Assuming the game keeps being made for several more years.
I'm a fan of multiple versions.
