The Fate of Wilderland

Recommended Posts

@DurinVoronwe. That strikes me as a little too high in terms of threat generation. Combined with Gandalf, that's 29 starting threat with a guaranteed 3 threat increase at the end of each round. That means (barring card effects that increase or decrease threat) that you will only have 7 rounds to complete most scenarios. Add to the picture that you will only have two heroes, this strikes me as a very hard duo to justify. That could just be me though.

I love the encounter deck mechanic though. I could see increasing his cost by 2 or 3 threat, dropping the automatic threat increase, and adding to his line that at the end of the quest phase if the top card of the encounter deck has a shadow effect, he does not exhaust to defend. I don't know if this would be overpowered or not though.

To cancel when revealed with the Staff would be great, and to combine it with doomed is a clever idea, too. I just feel that 3 is a bit too much, though I understand this more as an emergency.

Hall of Beorn has the same images, but appears to have complete text for the partially spoiled cards.  Mithril Shirt is reduce damage by 1, and the Messenger Raven does have 1 willpower.

I believe those might just be educated guesses on his part (subject to change), unless they were spoiled elsewhere that I'm not aware of.

I mostly agree, with the following corrections: Loyal Hound must be discarded to prevent damage, not exhausted.

The Great Hunt is instead "You must spend resources from 3 different heroes' pools to pay for this card. COMBAT ACTION: Choose and discard a non-unique enemy from the staging area"

Those are the rules corrections, I think the Shirrif ally is going to be "Shirriff of Bywater".

Mithril shirt is really good. No exhaustion, so a hero could take damage from staging, archery and combat and zero it out all in one round.

The other cards look decent and fair. Good synergy with istari. Thanks Lordbird!

I can't be the only one who's feels that the title The Return of the King on a Thorin themed card, even if it technically fits, is kinda awkward. Still, thanks @LordBird for translating, and these cards all look good, particularly Reforged. Has to be one of my favorite cards in the cycle. All around excellent pack, finally bringing Radagast hero, this is something I had been waiting for for years.

Interesting choices with Reforged. I often was considering a deck with Spirit Glorfindel without Lore but was missing Asfaloth in there. Maybe with this card, he can be cheated into play like I used to cheat out of sphere allies with Stand and Fight during the core set years. Elven Spear probably needed to discard it first.

And thanks, I always forget that, out of excitement from the new content. As often, they saved the best for last in the cycle, it seems. The Raven with Wizzard Pipe is just amazing, and now Radagast will need a smoke just as much as Gandalf. The Shirt is my favourite guarded card also because it produces a location which I never fear as much as enemies. But both Sting and Mithril Shirt are great in that that you know what you are getting. I just wish there was an Eagle or Beorning... hopefully later.

Wow, with no offence to the few surviving members, how else if I am myself included, whether the game is dying or not, this community is well dead and buried. I remember days when if the new pack was spoiled there would be maybe five pages of responses within ten hours, now there are five pieces.

Yes forum activity is at an all-time low.

Join the Facebook group to see multiple posts per day, or the Cardboard of the Rings discord server to see a continuous scroll of chatter about this kind of thing.  FFG and BGG forms are pretty quiet these days, there still there is a lot of talk going on about the game. It has just moved to a different place.

Spirit glorfindel with asfaltoh without the need to play lore seems really unfair.  You just need to put it into the discard pile which in spirit seems quite easy to accomplish considering eowyn and arwen  abilities plus cards like to the sea, to the sea...

You could already use Good Harvest for Lore-less Asfaloth, although Reforged in the setting of Arwen does save you a card.

Reforged is handy for mining decks.  Or with Erestor decks.  Off-sphere attachments are more interesting than off-sphere allies, so in that respect it's more interesting than Stand and Fight.  (Stand and Fight is more useful for reviving dead chacters, of course.)

The Great Hunt is a fairly narrow card, since it only works in the combat stage.  Though it combos well with the events (two in Lore) that prevent an enemy from making engagement checks.  That could come in handy in quests with powerful non-unique, non-immune enemies.

Bywater Sherrif is nice Cotton fodder, he can come in and attack for four.  Not bad for 2 resources.

I like Return of the King and so will TaBilbo.

The rest we've already seen.

True, but really Asfaloth is not as amazing as it once was. Location control has so many options these days. Reforged is just generally an exciting card to see for all kinds of uses.

The Great Hunt seems to be a useful corner case card for some saga quests, where you may well want to discard enemies you are avoiding (any and all mumaks...). A nice addition to mono-Lore encounter control decks, I think.

Gwaihir's Debt is also a nice addition to Eagles decks. Now that Radagast can help play them this is a form of draw to complement The Eagles are Coming! I'm way behind on playing at the moment (still struggling through Roam Across Rhovanion) but this is making me think I need to get a move on!

True, there are more options now which does make Asfaloth less unique but it is still an amazing card. And really much better (on Glorfindel) than most other location control cards, in most cases in which I run into.

With Radagast and Wizard's Pipe, you can put core Gandalf on your deck, pull it out with Gwaihir's Debt, put him in play and get him for the entire round before he returns back to your hand.

Yes, we knew that one already but it is an amazing card, and combo, just as the Raven. The creature deck got real.
