FFG is going to release Nighmare decks:
- One 22-card Passage Through Mirkwood Nightmare Deck
- One 22-card Journey Down the Anduin Nightmare Deck
- One 22-card Escape from Dol Guldur Nightmare Deck
How about allso releasing Burglar decks?
- One xx-card Shadows of Mirkwood burglar Deck
- One xx-card Dwarrowdelf burglar Deck
- One xx-card Against the Shadow burglar Deck
The idea of Burglar decks is opposite from Nightmare decks. There are supose to make adventures more easy to do.
A burglar deck would include cards that will help adventurers. They would be "good" Encounter cards like Treachery cards like "Good weather", "An Elf hunting party" "Beorn appears", "Eagles are coming" etc. There can be limited time objective allies like "Wandering old hobbit", "Elven scout", "Woodman hunter" that helps adventures one time, and then goes to the victory point pile. There can be positive attachements like, "Mushrooms", "bandage" etc. The idea is that every cards in Burglar deck would have a negative Victory point value and every card would be "one time wonder" So you can only fenefit that one card only one time during the scenario and after the use, it would go to the victory point pile.
"Wandering old hobbit" Hobbit. Burglar. Willpower 2, Attack strenght 2, Defense strengt 2, Hit Points 3, When revealed the first player gets controll of Wandering old hobbit. Forsed: After Wanderin old hobbit attacks, defend or is committed to the quest, put Wandering old hobbit to the victory point pile at the end of that phase. Shadow: Attackin enemy does not cause damage in this turn. Put wandering old hobbit to the victory point pile. Victory -2. Objective - Ally.
"Peafull clade" Forest. Clade. Treath streght -1. Quest points 0. Travel: The first player may draw a card when travelling here. When Peaseful clade is explored, put it to the victorypoint pile. Victory -1. Location.
"An elf hunting party" Doomed -1. When revealed: discard an enemy card in the staging area with lovest Engament cost. Shadow: Discard an attaking enemy. Victory -5. Treachery.
"Muchrooms" When revealed: The hero with the lovest Treat cost get this card as an attachement. Action: Discard this card to remove one wound from a character, and put this card to the victorypoint pile. Shadow: the defending character get +1 Defense strenght. Victory -1. Treachery.
The main idea is that burglar deck makes it possible to pass the scenario with only one / or two core packs and one expansion. The normal sceario would be suitable when you own two core sets and the whole cycle. And Nightmare decks are for those who have all the released cards…
This would make it possible to play each scenario even you only have the core set and only one expansion, and allso make the scenario tough enough if you have all the cards released so far. The positive and negative Victory points will balance the outcome, so a victory with Nighmare pack will be more valuable than the same sceanario with Burlar pack.
