    Some new investigators painted! Too bad I used to much superglue when attaching them to their bases. Perhaps it's spooky footprints?

    DMG reacted to Bobbymcbobface in Observations from a Novice   
    I picked up the Lord of the Rings card game on May 2 of last year. And I'm not kidding when I say it changed my life. I have now collected roughly half of the expansions, and considered myself fairly experienced. But there are a few observations that I would like to make about the world of Middle-Earth.
    Apparently, courage is actually expected. In almost every hero.
    Apparently, orcs are dumb. Like, extremely dumb. This game has been out for at least a decade, and THEY STILL DON'T SEE SNEAK ATTACKS COMING. I mean come on, you would think they would learn! Yes, young orcses, there WILL be a hobbit coming from behind you out of that tree. NO, NOT THAT ONE! THAT ONE!
    Enemies also fall for feints in combat. Every time.
    Apparently, Gandalf is more powerful than Eru Iluvatar. I mean, I don't know exactly how many people play LOTR LCG every day, but Gandalf apparently has the ability of omnipresence. He appears in every part of Middle-Earth, every day, from the ruins of Númenor to Rhún. That man (Istari, for the nerds) has GOT to be tired. Do you guys not realize why he leaves at the end of the round?! He needs a nap! And if you don't let him leave, you are 2 points more susceptible to the threat of the Dark Lord because he's trying to fall asleep on your shoulders.
    I don't know what the players at large have against that poor orc, but seriously, y'all (sorry, I'm from Oklahoma) need to give Will a break. Everyone seems to find the greatest delight in testing him. He just wants to live his life. He worked hard to graduate high school. He doesn't need any more tests!
    That's all for now. My main point is that you guys need to take more thought, and be nicer to the peoples of Middle-Earth. A person is a person no matter how small, or ugly, or tall. Take thought for the needs of everyone, and together we can make Middle-Earth great again. Keep your nose out of trouble, and no trouble will come to you!

    My guess is it's referring to AH2e which became very bloated & the card pools became more diluted with each expansion.

    DMG reacted to Tubb in Stranger Things MoM idea   
    Could be half-way journeys on middle earth and mansions of madness, using big tiles to move through Hawkins and its surroundings and then detailed tiles for interiors (mall, lab, hawker's cabin, the arcade...) 
    And think about it, the characters are very similar to any D&D party (eleven is the wizard, Lucas the elf, Dustin the dwarf, Steve and Jonathan the fighters or paladins, Max is the bard, Erica the rogue halfling... 
    So it would not be difficult to create a dungeon crawler...

    I'd report the game store to FFG.
    Here in Australia, you can go to Fair Trading or the ACCC to report places that refuse refunds for faulty goods.  We have reasonable consumer rights here.

    I think to get an expansion, you'd need to add characters with names like Han, Bilbo, or Jon Snow.

    DMG reacted to Nickotine42 in Would you buy card packs only?   
    So having just recently gotten into the game and trying to amass a fleet with ships all the way up to wave 3.5 available, I had a thought.  Would FFG ever release card packs for the various mods, EPT, etc?  They could be split into the Wave 1 EPT. Wave 1 mod, Wave 2 EPT, Wave 2 mod, etc.  Obviously the pilots wouldn't be of much use without the ships.  It would allow a new player like me who is trying to catch up to everyone the ability to legally play the cards without buying ships I have no intention of flying at the moment.  Yes, I'd like to fly a Lambda at some point, but I'm still working on tie formations and interceptors.  I think they could price them to be competitive with the current model/card format.  Also the production cost for card only packs would be very low in comparison of the current model/card format.  And perhaps it's limited to past expansions.  So when wave 5 comes out, the card packs for wave 4 are released.  I'm all for a great company making a great product to make as much money as they can.  And I really do feel like there is tremendous value in what the core and each expansion offers. I'll eventually buy an A-wing to give it a whirl, but don't want to buy 4 for PTLs. Thoughts?

    DMG reacted to Durins_Father in Downloadable strategy guide for first 2 cycles   
    Hi all,
    Thanks to the recent surge in Patreon subscriptions, we have passed the $30 mark. This means I have to stand by my promise and give everyone something special, so here it is.
    Vision of the Palantir is proud to present a full printable strategy guide on the first 2 cycles of the game, including art work, statistics, and jokes!
    The file can be downloaded as PDF from this link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/hbxfm2sfpwakhvw/Vision of the Palantir Guide Volume 1 - The Early Days.pdf?dl=0
    The file is quite big if you are looking to print it, with 139 pages and most featuring colored images. But it is great to have a physical book where you can read all about the strategy on the scenarios of the first 2 cycles.
    More of these bundles will be made public as the blog and the Patreon page reach new milestones. I also need some time to prepare the next set, but Volume 2 has all scenarios covered already, so we should be able to produce that one relatively quickly.
    I hope this helps some people in having a physical (or at least offline) resource to fall back to. Thanks for the great support and we will do our best to keep up the good work.
    On a side-note here, I will be having some real life getting in the way of blogging for the next 6 months (graduation stuff), so I will have to tone down the frequency of content. But I'm sure that my co-authors will be filling in some gaps. If there is anyone willing to cover a scenario that hasn't been covered yet, feel free to reach out, and I'll get you started as an author.
    Good luck with your games,
