    player3351457 got a reaction from GrandSpleen in Hobbit Saga - Man this is hard!   
    I'm not sure what your card pool is like but another way around the quest is to clear the encounter deck. It's harder to swing with all the trolls in play but if you can get a swarm going and take the hits without losing too much willpower, you can wait it out. I would definitely recommend holding on to one or maybe even two at a time, if you can keep your threat low enough, and just quest through.
    Another trick if you have it... 
    Play sting, the guarded card. Theres only a couple crows in the deck, and it must attach to an enemy. You could theoretically clear out a huge chunk of the deck searching for them.

    player3351457 reacted to Felswrath in The POD Scenario We Need!   
    The PODs have given us some of the most unique scenarios from grand sieges to murder mysteries to dungeon crawls. Now with what appears to be the darkest cycle on our hands, I think that next years GenCon POD should be a total juxtaposition. 
    Here's the image! The year is somewhere between 2978 and 2988 (certainly within the timeframe of the game). The setting Farmer Maggot's Fields. Your quest: help Farmer Maggot stop rabbits and crows and pesky young hobbits from stealing his crops! And the big bad at the end of the scenario is young Frodo Baggins!

    For the first version of Bilbo... I want to like it because it provides good synergy with sting and has a similar approach to the tactics bilbo. However, what bothers me is that this doesnt seem thematic to who this Bilbo is. Lore Bilbo is post-The Hobbit book, the retired burglar who is celebrating his 111th birthday. He isn't doing combat. He is a little attached to the ring. Raising defense and battling doesn't seem to fit the character.
    The other thing you might consider is his synergy with the other hobbits. Spirit frodo, fatty, and pippin raise threat. Spirit merry, leadership frodo, and folco reduce threat. 
    Might I suggest, keep the passive card draw and instead of defense: "when you raise your threat through player card effect, draw x cards where x is the amount of threat raised (limit once per round)" this lends to synergizing well with Smeagol, the new master cards (utilizing the ring), and some doomed cards. It also makes spirit pippin a lot more playable.
    My concern would be the abuse of Grima doomed decks, which struggle with card draw. This makes those decks absolute machines. 
    The ability does seem to play into who Lore Bilbo is, however. He provides a relief for the threat hit, and almost encourages the use of the ring.

    To balance, it should also require bilbo exhausting.

    What's interesting about the new form of lorefindel is that it lends to a totally different play style, i.e. one where you might want to have damage on certain characters at certain times to trigger the boost he provides. Short questing by one? Boom, pay a resource, you're good. Hero treebeard need to beast up to max? Trigger treebeard 4 damage, heal one, trigger one more damage, and suddenly treebeard swings for 9. Ally Quickbeam comes in to play ready and strong. You just have to make sure there's damage in the right places and money in lorefindels pocket.

    Seems like this has gotta be one of the fastest turn-arounds between cycles that we've seen. Also, for me personally, this will be the first time I've been able to play a cycle as it is releasing since Angmar Awakened...Double woohoo!

    I meant if it's been in that status behind the scenes and they just now put it up to that status. They skipped "at the printer" altogether which makes me believe that it truly was up to proper speed.

    player3351457 got a reaction from donkler in Necklace of Girion and "cannot have attachments" cards   
    This is thread is a little old now, but the first scenario of the Gray Havens (I haven't played any of the others of this cycle so maybe this isnt exclusive) ONLY has ship enemies that cannot have attachments. Thus, Sting is free and, once you empty the encounter deck, is unguarded.

    I used this resource tonight. I learned a lot from it -- we had an immediate attack happen in the quest phase. We had Halbarad hero committed, but not exhausted, to the quest. He defended the attack, and in the action after declaring the defender, we readied him with elwings flight (since it was still during the quest). That helped us have an extra defender later while still securing Halbarad was ready before he dealt with the shadow (which may have targeted exhausted characters)

    I'm with you. I'm also not going to run a list of changed cards. I have a mix of cards that have been errata'd and some that have not. Makes for honest game play and no holds up while we look up the new text

    Thanks for posting! I'm very excited for another leadership hobbit. And he also works well with Bilbo+sting combo (bilbo quests, bilbo readies with frodo payment, deals damage, reduces threat, engage an enemy, defend with sting + 1 more damage). Throw sam in there too and you have a combat ready hobbit line up

    Love your heroes. Spirit aragorn and hero arwen work incredibly well together.
    Count me as one who wants a tactics Silvan hero. Legolas is strong but getting a little old, not to mention it doesn't really fit into synergy of the other silvans.

    Gamenerdz is awesome. They deliver it the same day it releases on the site. That's the third time this cycle it's happened for me (my buddy bought the other packs). 
    Of course, it doesn't compare to getting it two months early in Italy... 🙄

    Let me first start off by saying, yes, as a math teacher, I am aware that there is other significance to the date.
    But my buddy and I were running through the saga and we have reached the Pelennor Fields scenario, which I hear is the best scenario in the game. We are attempting it tonight for the first time, so I was reading up on it last night and discovered: https://lotr.fandom.com/wiki/Battle_of_the_Pelennor_Fields
    In other words, the Battle of Pelennor fields took place 3/14/19.
    Providence that we should land on the scenario on this particular date!
    Have a great day all!

    I like it -- if you swap will power and defense she will be one of only three lore heroes with base 3 WP. We need some more powerful questers in Lore!
    You would almost definitely run this with lorefindel, but really any leadership hero that triggers with spending money will benefit. Eomer and Gildor come to mind.  I wonder if the song is too powerful.
