  1. Thanks for the suggestion, @Nerdmeetsyou. I don't use Facebook, so unfortunately I won't be able to post in that group.

    Roam Across Rhovanion

    http://hallofbeorn.com/LotR?CardSet=Roam+Across+Rhovanion Also, to help out those strategizing for Haldan location attachment decks: http://hallofbeorn.com/LotR?Category=Location+Attachment
  3. Mrs. Beorn and I will be in Central Europe (Hungary, Czech Republic, Austria) this fall, ending up in Munich for Oktoberfest. Any players out there interested in joining us for a beer, coffee, or game? Message me if you’d like to meet up somewhere along our travels.
  4. Yep, it's part of the alternate art that I created for my Aggro Caldara deck: https://hallofbeorn.wordpress.com/2017/03/10/alternate-art-aggro-caldara-v3/

    Any Players in Portugal?

    Hi Strilar, I just sent you a message with my itinerary.
  7. Mrs. Beorn and I will be in Portugal for the holidays and I wanted to reach out to the community and see if there are any players who hail from that beautiful country. We are happy to meet up for a game, a coffee, or some wine and cheese. I am also going to try to track down a Portuguese forum to post there as well, but I wanted to ask here just in case. Obrigado por ouvir!

    Mountain of Fire

    The Hall of Beorn also has full spoilers for Mountain of Fire, for those who prefer their card databases with bees and helper animals... http://hallofbeorn.com/LotR/Browse/The-Mountain-of-Fire

    Leadership Eomer

    @Rouxxor, I think you may be misunderstanding me. I'm not saying that Theodred is a bad hero - to the contrary he is one of the better heroes in the Core Set. There are very good reasons why I included him in my deck for Beorn's Path. I'm also not saying that he should have an increased threat cost - 8 is exactly where he needs to be. I am saying that I wish that he was 2 willpower, 2 attack, 0 defense and 4 hit points. My disappointment was that 1 willpower is not at all efficient for the action that you are spending - and you almost always want to spend his action to quest. I feel this same disappointment about leadership Eomer. I like the ability (though I agree with @Gizlivadi that I wish it had been switched with the ability on his sword), I just find it disappointing when heroes with 1 willpower have abilities tied to their committing to the quest. I did not think that was a controversial perspective, but I'm happy to argue my point in greater detail if need be.

    Leadership Eomer

    I share in the disappointment with yet another Rohan hero with a quest-based response and 1 measly willpower. I will say that he is *amazing* in battle quests. I want to make a Rohan deck to go back and crush the Heirs of Numenor scenarios.

    @Laco, thanks for letting me know. I've added a link to your site on the Community page on my blog, as well as in the links bar which is displayed on the right side of every page. If there are any other foreign language blogs which you use or know about, please let me know. I am happy to spread the word about resources for this game in any language. S pozdravom!

    There is another option for exposure. If you have designed a deck and have a write up to describe your deck-building decisions or a detailed play report, there are blogs which will feature your deck in an article. The key here is doing some of the leg-work yourself. If you link to a RingsDB deck with a one sentence description, there's not a whole lot of incentive for someone else to take time out to turn that into an article. On the other hand, members of the community have spent considerable time on concept decks, theme decks and combo decks, all of which have been featured at various times on community blogs (including my own). I don't presume to speak for anyone else, but my time is seriously constrained - not to mention that I want to spend my free time actually *playing* games too. However, I am more than happy to help members of the community gain exposure. We just need to "meet in the middle" in terms of effort. A subtle but important part of getting your work recognized is to in turn recognize that others have put work in to make the community exist to begin with. All of the podcasts, blogs, search engines, and RingsDB itself, all represent considerable sacrifices on the parts of various community creators. This community is very friendly and helpful, but part of any healthy community is an expectation of the citizens to get their hands dirty and help. This is not intended as a direct criticism of you, just a reminder of how communities actually work. I can certainly relate to the frustration of having a deck which you like disappear into the ether (it's happened to me plenty of times). Because the RingsDB front page can only ever support one deck for each sphere at a time, relying on a simplistic popularity algorithm is not your best bet for exposure. This is especially true if you have spent considerable time building/testing/thinking about the deck. I encourage you to explore alternative avenues for exposure, this community is about as robust as any you will find online. Thanks for being a part of the community, and may your decks get all of the attention that they deserve!
