Ronald Reagan? The actor!?

Welcome to part 3 of the campaign! Our heroes are:





Flight to the Ford

quote:

"They have drawn off for the time being. But not far, I fear. They will come again another night, if we cannot escape. They are only waiting, because they think that their purpose is almost accomplished, and that the Ring cannot fly much further."
–Aragorn, The Fellowship of the Ring


You are playing Campaign Mode.
Response: After an enemy is declared as an attacker, shuffle the top card of the burden deck into the encounter deck to cancel that attack. (Any player may trigger this ability.)

1A - Pursued by the Enemy

quote:

Frodo has been gravely injured in the attack at Weathertop and will perish if his companions can’t bring him to Rivendell in time. Strider leads the hobbits towards the hidden valley, anxiously listening for the sound of Black Riders…

Setup: Shuffle each burden card from the Flight to the Ford burden set into a Burden deck. Attach An Evil Wound to the Ring-bearer. Set Ford of Bruinen and The Witch-king aside, out of play. Add The Last Bridge and 1 Fell Rider per player to the staging area. Set the Ring-bearer’s life at 15. Shuffle the encounter deck.

The players cannot advance unless The Last Bridge is in the victory display.

Forced: At the end of the round, reduce the Ring-bearer’s life by 1.

Bard needs to be making Ranged attacks, so at least two of the riders need to hurt frodo and then be optionally engaged if possible. I think we have all the riders in play currently, so only ringwraiths to worry about enemy wise.

2. Pale Blade

2b. Piercing Cry

I knew I shouldn't have quested Gildor :(

At this point I think my options are either take 2 Fell Riders with Bard and Theoden though that would leave us with more Nazgul left alive next turn or take just 1 Fell Rider though that I don't know if I can do that without someone else losing a hero. My hand is expensive so unless someone can somehow get me a resource before next turn I can't really handle these guys being engaged for that many rounds.

Nazgul in staging area, I don't think I can handle that without a chump blocker.

Hmmm Technically Elrond has +2HP from the attachment. I could attempt to take a hit undefended. (obviously last ditch option if I can)
I do have Haldir available for helping attack.
And I can have healing next turn.

If you can get Theoden healed up then I have a decent ally that can take over defending from Bard so I could at least survive 2 rounds of 2 Fell Riders but then if we get more Nazgul coming our way then we're gonna end up swamped.

Sure, I'll make sure to get healing on next turn.
I hope to have defenders or at least Elrond available to help take some heat off soon...

Circl has a guard.

Are we putting a fell ride rup to 5 attack, or the ringwraith up to 6 attack?

If we give it to the Ringwraith and CMast takes it and blocks with the Guard then Legolas, Bard and Imrahil can take it down and the blade becomes worthless.

Jan 22, 2010



Yeah, that's a good option. Boromir and Aragorn are also up.

Guard blocks, Boromir Aragorn and Imrahil can kill the ring wraith.

Leoolas and Bard can pop a fell rider from Eddie or I.

Stricken Dumb

quote:

Peril.
When Revealed: You must either shuffle the top card of the burden deck into the encounter deck and reveal an additional encounter card, or raise each player's threat by 3 and immediately end the quest phase (do not resolve the quest).

This means the two Pathless Countries would be shuffled back into the deck if you choose the later option.

I don't think threat's really going to be an issue long term, I think we're better off taking the small hit now, clearing out the staging area then ploughing ahead next round

Oh sure, I just meant that if Amoeba is worried about being behind on questing we can get around that and even out for this turn pretty easily.

E: so where are we even at with the staging area/questing/engagement?

Once we clear out the Fell Riders we'll only have Ringwraiths to worry about till the Witch King shows up. We can blitz everything once we clear up these enemies.

I'd rather not have more burdens to deal with, we'll have a minimum of one from the Last Bridge, let's keep it at one if we can.

End the questing phase.
