    The Core Set rulebook says you draw (+ mulligan) your initial hand before you arrange and place the quest cards. The Saga rulebooks say you place the campaign card next to the quest deck (and then follow the setup instructions), which won't be on the table until after you've drawn your setup hand. I don't think you'd lose Andúril to a mulligan.

    I am a big fan of this recent trend of getting guest writers to do articles. First we had Ian and now Sean, all three very well written and highly enjoyable to read. It's really nice to see an article that's written purely from the perspective of a fan - and it's great that people who have done a lot for the community around this game are being recognised.
     
    The art choices are spot on as well, especially the Blood of Númenor one. I wish Magali would hurry up and sell a print of that.

    However most hero-specific attachments say "Attached hero gets [whatever]." Since Imrahil is not a hero he is not the attached hero and thus doesn't get the effect from such things until he becomes a hero again.

    Here are the player cards in order(including boons):

    Beregond
     

     
    Prince Imrahil

    Golden Shield
    Livery of the Tower
     

     

     

     

     
    So no Éomer, but aside from that it's pretty close to what I expected. Roheryn completes the Aragorn sphere-giving attachments. For Banner of Elendil (which I'm glad we got, though it's weird that we'll be allowed to play it in The Black Riders and The Road Darkens), it's worth recalling the timing of attacking, from the core rulebook:
     
    I suppose that Quick Strike shenanigins would also work, to declare an attack while Aragorn is attacking someone else.

    All this art was commissioned and used for Elder Sign: Omens of Ice, more than one year ago. This clearly doesn't mean the AH LCG is not a thing; it simply means the art has already been used on an FFG game.

    Yeah, but only if you have the resources already on him. Going from the Wingfoot + Quick Ears ruling where responses that cancel have to occur before any others, Glóin wouldn't get resources from the damage before you'd have to cancel it with Livery.

    blinky reacted to Estel Edain in The remainder of the Dream-chaser cycle   
    Now that we know all of the player cards from the first three packs, I thought it might be worth reviewing what we know about the remaining packs. Four is Faramir covers the basics, but there are a few details that we can piece together. Some of this involves speculation, but I'll be clear about when information isn't 100% solid.
     
    The Drowned Ruins
    The Drowned Ruins is the pack we know most about: there are likely only two player cards in it whose names are unknown, and we even have some info about those cards.
     
    Argalad: 4 hitpoints and partial text spoilers
    Dwarven Sellsword (83)
    ? [perhaps Leadership event for decks with 2 or fewer heroes]
    Marksman of Lorien (85)
    ? [perhaps Dúnedain support Tactics card]
    Woodland Courier (87)
    Hithlain (88)
    ? [very likely Robin Smallburrow]
    Interrogation: ability unknown [almost certainly trap support]
    Strider (91)
     
    The announcement article says:
    Based on the art and the fact that it's Lore, Interrogation is almost certainly the trap support. Robin Smallburrow was spoiled when the cycle was announced. Theoretically, he could be in a later pack and another hobbit ally in this pack. However, FFG has never released two allies from the same sphere in the same adventure pack. Since we already have Leadership, Tactics and Spirit allies spoiled for this pack (as well as a neutral card spoiled) the hobbit ally is likely Lore. By the same reasoning, Robin Smallburrow is unlikely to show up in A Storm on Cobas Haven (which has Ioreth as a Lore ally) and is not very likely to show up in The City of Corsairs, which already has four non-Hobbit allies. My guess is that the unknown Leadership card is the second card in the pack to support 2 hero decks (it doesn't seem like it would fit in Tactics, and I doubt that Inerrogation would be it). There's a chance that the card that supports 2 hero decks or Interrogation also supports Dunedain decks, but it seems more likely that the unknown Tactics card supports Dunedain decks.
     
    A Storm on Cobas Haven
    We know much less about A Storm on Cobas Haven. The announcement article mentions that this pack has 10 player cards aside from the hero, like Flight of the Stormcaller did. The announcement article for The City of Corsairs doesn't mention how many player cards are in that pack, but Prince Imrahil is numbered 138 and Prince of Dol Amroth is numbered 146, so the pack only has 7 cards among Leadership, Tactics, Spirit and Lore. It seems likely that whatever sphere gets only one card in the last pack will get three cards in A Storm on Cobas Haven.
     
    Na'asiyah (109 or 110) ? [Leadership] ? [Leadership] ? [Leadership or Tactics, though possibly neutral] (112 or 120) ? [Tactics] Knife-work (114) Linhir Sea-captain: partially spoiled ? [spirit] Ioreth (117) ? [Lore] Justice Shall Be Done (119)   Based on numbering, this pack has a maximum of 2 Spirit cards and 2 Lore cards. There's a decent chance that it has three Leadership cards or three Tactics cards, though it's possible that this pack has two neutral cards and that one sphere receives fewer cards this cycle (like Shadow and Flame had only one Tactics card). Once The Drowned Ruins comes out, it will be possible to check whether the last encounter card of that pack is numbered 108 or 109, which will tell us Na'asiyah's number. If she's 109, the extra player card in A Storm on Cobas Haven will be Leadership or Tactics. If she's 110, we'll get two neutral cards.   Aside from numbering and sphere distribution, the announcement article says: This refers back to the cycle's announcement, which said:
     
    So far we've seen Glorfindel, Eldahir, Azain Silverbeard, and Déorwine who clearly fit this description. Sam Gamgee, Ceorl, Robin Smallburrow, and Ioreth are less expensive unique allies with generally powerful effects. There are also some expensive non-unique powerful allies, like Guardian of Rivendell and Knight of the White Tower. Linhir Sea-captain is neither expensive nor unique, and Ioreth is not expensive, so there's a good chance that we'll get a expensive powerful unique ally in Leadership or Tactics (or both) in this pack. Personally, I would love to see an ally version of Aragorn or ally versions of the twins.
     
    The City of Corsairs
    The final pack also has several cards that we know nothing about. It's difficult to tell what the number for Inspiring Presence is (spoiled in the announcement for Flight of the Stormcaller). It looks like 140, but that doesn't really make sense: adventure pack numbering is consistently in the order of Leadership, Tactics, Spirit, Lore, and finally neutral, so that would suggest that Knight of the White Tower is the only Leadership card and there are no Tactics cards. It looks a little bit like 142, which could work if there's one Leadership card and two Tactics cards (or vice versa) and Inspiring Presence is the first Spirit card. However, there's a partially spoiled Spirit ally, and allies typically come before attachments and events from their sphere (there are occasional exceptions: Heir of Mardil comes before Orophin, perhaps because Heir of Mardil come right after Galadriel and can work on her). It's also possible that the numbering changed after the announcement of Flight of the Stormcaller.
     
    The partially spoiled Spirit ally comes from a card fan in French that was posted on the discord spoilers chat on May 18. I can't find the image on Edge's website; I'm guessing it was taken down because it was spoiling cards before FFG  had announced the last pack. The Spanish fan that spoiled Na'asiyah was posted at the same time and is on Four is Faramir, but this fan wasn't copied there. Here it is (contains some quest spoilers, especially if you understand French):

     
    Súlien (possibly a different name in translation) is a Dúnedain scout. The announcement article says that this pack contains three new Gondor allies. If Inspiring Presence is 142, we'll likely see:
     
    Prince Imrahil (138) Knight of the White Tower ? [Leadership or Tactics card] (140 or 141) ? [Tactics Gondor ally] (140 or 141) Inspiring Presence (142) Súlien ? [Lore Gondor ally] ? [Lore card] Prince of Dol Amroth (146)   If Inspiring Presence isn't 142, the order of these cards can move around a bit, and it's possible that we get 2 Leadership, 2 Tactics, and 1 Lore card.   We might get a second neutral card in this pack, but it makes sense for this pack to only have 8 player cards. Like The Thing in the Depths, the previous pack had 10 player cards and this quest has two new encounter sets (one sailing and one on land).   Hold the Line is the name of a card whose art was spoiled in the recent Second Breakfast article (Denethor and Sons; right clicking on the image to save it gives the name). It seems like a Gondor themed defensive event. It might well be Leadership, since the deck it illustrates is mono-Leadership, though I could imagine it as Tactics. It might be in the last pack, which has a focus on Gondor, or the second last, which has more free card slots.   Cards that can spend resources for additional effects The announcement for Flight of the Stormcaller said:  
    Counting heroes, there are usually 60 player cards in a cycle. Since we've seen a card from each sphere which is boosted by resources of the same sphere and there are three other combinations from each sphere, I expect to see 16 of these cards (just over a quarter of 60). So far, we've seen:   Leadership Dwarven Sellsword (boosted by Leadership) ? [perhaps Hold the Line] (boosted by Tactics) Ceorl (boosted by Spirit) Eldahir (boosted by Lore)   Tactics Déorwine (boosted by Leadership) Azain Silverbeard (boosted by Tactics) ? [likely in The Drowned Ruins or The City of Corsairs, since Knife-work is in A Storm on Cobas Haven] (boosted by Spirit) Knife-work (boosted by Lore)   Spirit Inspiring Presence (boosted by Leadership) Tides of Fate (boosted by Tactics) Sam Gamgee [slightly different, since the players as a group can't pay the cost, but the effect can be triggered by other players] (boosted by Spirit) ? [likely in A Storm in Cobas Haven, since Inspiring Presence is in The City of Corsairs] (boosted by Lore)   Lore Heed the Dream (boosted by Leadership) Arrows from the Trees (boosted by Tactics) Robin Smallburrow (boosted by Spirit) Ioreth (boosted by Lore)   I hope this info is useful. If some of my guesses seem wrong, if you can read the number on Inspiring Presence, or if I've missed any information, please contribute to this list.
