  1. It is the responsibility of the individual to confront the absurd and craft meaning for oneself, to fight phenomenological futility of existence by self-manufacturing purpose. I think that, in our case, this means actively playing the game in new and refreshing ways while we wait.
  2. I always recommend buying the products in the order in which they were originally released, so you get the organic feel of the way that the game progressed. Others will disagree. I am biased toward my own awesome experience with the game. I started playing when the game was released, and I had an excellent experience playing with new cards as they came out. For example, if you have a friend or two that is willing to play, you can build decks with Core Set stuff, play until you feel you've gotten enough out of the Core Set, and then agree to get the next adventure pack. Then, you both modify your decks and play the new scenario, etc. If you buy in the order of release, the decks in your playgroup should develop in a synergistic way.
  3. I think that SW LCG, played at the highest level, is intensely complex. That is one of the things that I enjoyed about it.
  4. I think that it would be cool to see the Core Set released for 50-70 USD that included the original Core Set with all cards 3x, a small batch of some alternate art versions of some core set cards, and then maybe include the first cycle of adventure packs also, perhaps also with some alternate art cards and maybe cool new tokens or threat counters or something. That would make it an appealing investment for new players, and also get old players to buy it.
  5. NOT Druadan Forest.
  6. https://www.gencon.com/events/111680 Short Description: Rally your heroes for an epic battle against the forces of Sauron! Attack on Dol Guldur, is a unique, epic 12 player scenario!
  7. I have to second Steward's Fear. Such an awesome scenario. Encounter at Amon Din is also really, really fun.
  8. The Race Against the Shadow tournament format is very enjoyable. Rules: https://images-cdn.fantasyflightgames.com/filer_public/67/af/67af4664-f4be-4a87-9054-76dfe63b850e/race-against-the-shadow-rules.pdf We held a Race Against the Shadow event a while back at the FFG Event Center and I wrote an article about it: http://www.cardgamedb.com/index.php/index.html/_/lord-of-the-rings/the-race-against-the-shadow-r974
  9. My main want is the ability to have quite long campaigns that span many game sessions. I want to be able to have my playgroup start at the beginning and then proceed to level up and spend many, many game sessions within a campaign-style adventure.
  10. Someone somewhere within the company should interact more with the forums. New characters are obviously new content, from a technical definition. But, it would have been nice to see more campaign/adventure content.
  11. These are absolutely awesome! The only thing that I can think of is finding someone online who is good at graphic design and can make them look like the style of the game manual. Thank you for your work on these; they'll be very useful to anyone who plays this game. I particularly like that you clarified how much stress various enemies can take and I think that the sheet for keeping track of what cars the players have access to and how much gas, the mileage, etc., is very helpful.
  12. Well, they could have just logged on and written, "Hey everyone. Not to worry. We do plan on releasing expansions for this game. It's taking a while due to X, Y, and Z." I think that PoD stuff is bad news. Also, they are just putting out some new player characters, not any actual new game content.
  13. I still like Eleanor. She is really useful in 3-4 player games.
  14. After playing 1.0 from the beginning and then seeing my collection become essentially worthless overnight was enough for me. I was smart enough not to buy in to 2.0. The meta for 1.0 was a complete mess/joke at multiple points in the game's lifecycle.
  15. Check out the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game.
