Re: Prisoner cards

I looked for a while on this forum for the best thread to post this response about Flies & Spiders. I hold that the card text as originally written is correct. The hazard is played on the attack allowing all of the strikes to capture a victim. Why not? 13 dwarves and a hobbit were captured. The best...

Re: 265-Avatar War

Attached is the full notes of the practice faction wars. These notes include the previous days's commentary, but also notes of playing and moving the factions along with the battles themselves. The updated rules are included. Overall, battles are a major investment that may loose you MPs since the b...

Re: 242-War of the Sands

COMMENTARY This area of notes are for Akhorahil and Pallando. Two wars are dicussed here: Pass & Sands. Akhorahil had success defeating Pallando’s factions. The ill luck for the wizard was the death of two dwarf factions on their first battle even with Endurance of Stone in play. Movement to Mablad-...

Re: 248-Raid Along the Coasts

Note that the Battle of the Pass has to do with stopping flow of factions northwestward near Bosiri. Some battles of both wars (Pass, Sands) happened in the same region, but many turns apart. Battle of the Pass was much less than I expected due to moving Mumakaniril early and using The Whips of Thei...

Re: 247-War from the Mountains

COMMENTARY Theoden kept Riders of Rohan in Gondor, which was smart. It is a powerful faction needed for the War of the Ring. The other two factions were late. However, all three were ready to battle Ardagor and Dwarf factions in Eriador. Hoarmurath did not move. That is one of my prejudices – Overt ...

Re: 243-War of the Plains

COMMENTARY This group of avatars did not follow expectations. I thought that Vidugavia and Uvatha would battle in Rhun. Vidugavia was slow to play factions while six minion Man factions hit the table. Thus, those minions visited Gondor for battle in the First Wain-Rider War. That proved costly to De...

Re: 246-War Under Trees

Thranduil was tempted to battle at Sarn Goriwing, but it was too much a risk. Scatha won a Power deck slot by two. Scatha played Spiders of Mirkwood late. If that spider faction was played much earlier, they may have had battled. A spider, orc, and troll faction could face two elf faction and one he...

Re: 245-War in the Vale

Felagrog can get his factions to Redhorn Gate in three turns from Ered Lithui. Might play A Few Recuits at that site in Ered Ormal so to move to mountains regions. This practice war had no factions in Rhun to slow these Orc factions moving towards Mordor. Not many factions are in Wilderland to be ar...

Re: 244-War Among the Ruins

The practice wars have ended. Minions lost 5 factions, heroes two. The Rhudaur minion factions need to be played early. This fuss had me think of switching Orcs of Angmar with Stone Trolls. However, thinking now I believe Elves of the House could not move without Doom of Choice since moving to Rhuda...

Re: 241-War on the Tundra

The practice wars have ended. I am posting the results to the forum. These avatars need their faction MPs, thus no battles during the Avatar Deck.] Evermist can keep his factions safe; can battle during the Power Decks if a Dragon-lord is too much for the three dwarf factions (FoD,RE,IHD). Thus, do ...

Re: 262-War Factions

Some Faction numbers and body stats will be changed. I think the body are about right. I do not expect healing with characters dedicated to other goals.The Power Decks are expected to last no more than 16 turns. Minion factions south of Mordor were in 11 turns of battles, which is what I expect for ...

265-Avatar War

Here are the notes of the first 16 turns of the Avatar Deck. Things did not go as I thought. First, not every avatar has a resource to move factions. The Northern Waste avatars were in no mood to battle. Also, there is no means to move dragon factions, which is find with me. Mirkwood was quiet. Mini...

Re: A Chance Meeting / We Have Come to Kill

The only artwork are the cards - nothing like the MERP books. The METW guide has 50 pages of commentary and strategy (wizards, havens, creatures, roadblock, tournaments, example decks. Then each card is shown with background book material, game commentary, and the quote found on the card. Some comme...
