    Giant spiders, Warg riders, men of dunland would all be interesting additions

    Shirys got a reaction from King_Balrog in What characters do we want to see?   
    I'd like a cast of new characters, similar to the ones they created for MEQ.
    Let's have fun exploring Middle-Earth with a B-team of unknown adventurers while the big names save the world.
    Elena is a good start. She's kinda cool. Also, a¬†new Hobbit; perhaps a female, and a new D√ļnedain, kinda like¬†Beravor.
    Otherwise, i'd like √Čowyn, Faramir and Boromir.

    This won't deter me from playing the game but i can understand how you feel.
    Gloomhaven has no dice and it ain't a flop, it uses cards for character actions and combat results. FFG seem to have developed a similar, strong mechanic with deck building which is a step outside their comfort zone. Really eager for that. Plus you can select different class (or path) cards for the same hero as the campaign unfolds - you can even gain experience to have stronger effects with cards of a specific class. You want to level up another class? you can.
    About the heroes, Elena is new and kinda cool (never heard of her), and Beravor is a nice addition that was first introduced in the MEQ boardgame from FFG. She was also present in the LotR:LCG but kinda lived in other, more popular heroes' shadow. Kinda glad she's part of the original pool of heroes. I agree with you that the Legolas-Aragorn-Gimli trio might seem like straight out from the microwave oven, meself would have opted for new B-Team characters instead, but at least half the characters stand out from the usual powerhouses and inevitable no brainers. In future expansions, if FFG can introduce at least one new character like they did for MEQ, that would be nice.
    Never had any issues with rules overload from FFG (except some of their older games like Arkham Horror 2nd ed). Everything is¬†easy to understand, well laid out, clear explanations and streamlined. Try playing Sword & Sorcery. Even after several sessions, i'm still spending as much time looking into the rule book for clunky, hard to grasp rules than playing the game. Doesn't happen with our favorite gaming company here. For example, the rule books from Arkham Horror:LCG are among the best¬†ūüėɬ†
    The mini battlefield is intriguing and i can't say much about it, but it is exciting that you can explore "indoors" as well as "outdoors". Some dungeon crawling mechanic in the works for that game? let them clever guys at FFG surprise us with more content.
    I would say don't miss out because i feel there will be a lot of good adventuring in there.
    Hope you enjoy the game as much as i know i will

    Shirys reacted to manoftomorrow010 in will the app generate different terrain based on location?   
    Yeah! You can see it in some of the unboxing vids online. I fully trust FFG to properly address such lore and immersion questions with this game, since they do that so well in reflecting cultures, landscapes, etc., across Middle-earth in the LOTR LCG.

    Shirys got a reaction from HirumaShigure in Can it be played without the app?   
    Mansions of Madness 2nd edition does have music playing in the background - kinda eerie and atmospheric. The voice acting (which is really good btw) is mostly at the beginning and at the end of a scenario. Think i also heard a scream or two during a scenario, which was cool.
    Apart from that, the app makes the experience really immersive and the map (and monsters) isn't always the same. There's a real feel of exploration and discovery which i'll also enjoy in LotR:JiM-E.
    As much as i was for MoM 2nd ed, i'm also really excited about this game!
