This player had partial success protecting Southern Gondor from factions and troubling
Adunaphel the Ringwraith. Yet, poor play of characters had this player slow for many turns.
Karma of Aldarion was played and Lothíriel was discarded twice by an agent. Thus, recycle with
Nenselde was restricted to an unpleasant pace. But there were 37 moving companies. It was
troublesome playing characters with Coastal Seas in between, but that what makes the game
enjoyable. Agents were thorns either through influence or by attacks. Faction battles were mixed.
Two factions fought to a stalemate in Andrast during the Council Turns. Strider was discarded on
Turn 3 and will not be in the next game for this player. Characters were usually played in two
turns because a company immediately moved to the home site. It was worrisome moving with
small, weak companies. However, only eight creatures were faced! And two in the first 20 turns.
That is absurd. Yet, six characters were slain (Forgotten Scrolls, Slayer, agents x2, Sand-drake,
Vaurak). Barliman Butter was “added” to the deck on Turn 21 so to keep Dol Amroth in play. It
was scary keeping Lothiriel alone with Elwen whispering tales of shoe sales in Linhir. The
success of agents has had me reconsider playing agent hazards on any player. But I want agent
trouble early in the game and not on Turn 22 discarding a character with several table cards.
Also, I removed Balance Between Powers early in the game. That resource is too powerful with
so many players. If Imrahil has the first mini-turn and last in the next turn, then all other players
in his group will experience that resource event twice. That is too much. I like the event for the
Power Decks with four in a group instead now with 8. Raid of Umbar was played on Turn 19.
The delay was due to lack of characters, and I think using Stolen Knowledge.
There were 8 body checks, killing 6 characters, from 42 strikes including detainment. Nenselde
must be in play recycling Sun and Star of High Hope else it will be a roll of six-pair.
The avatar was played on Turn 2. He was busy moving 16x. The avatar was in play for 23 turns:
7 taps to accessed sideboard, x1 play item, x3play factions, x1 support, 8x faced strikes, x1 in
cvcc, x1 for Grace of Uinen, x0.ally, x0 to remove hazard, x3 to fetch Tower of Amroth.
Vygavril killed by Slayer. Mariner then killed that same turn by the attack from Forgotten
Scrolls. Then Duinhir was slain with his 6 body from an agent. Sand-drake killed the other
Mariner. Vaurak ate Urezir. Another agent killed 9 body Niluphel.
This player sailed facing 8 creatures from 59 hazards, but 18 were agent actions. Adûnaphel
played 17 hazards. One CvCC was defended and one initiated. There were 37 moving companies
and 59 total companies. Average hazard limit was 2.25; that is low by 10%. About 95 regions
were moved through. 30 regions were Free-Domains and another 23 Coastal Sea. This was a
reason of facing few creatures. Pallando moved through 130 regions. Vidugavia moved through
104 regions. Gandalf moved through 152; Elrond 86. [going back to those decks for stats]
33 hazards were played by Imrahil, 2 were agents – 15 on Adûnaphel. Five creatures were
played on Akhôrahil. Nine players did not face one hazard from Imrahil.
First deck exhausted on Turn 13. Turn 10 ended with 21 cards in the playdeck. Second deck
exhaust on Turn 19. 11 non-Lordhaven sites were tapped. First deck shuffled 10 cards and drew a
high 7.9 cards/turn. Second deck shuffled 7 cards and drew 14 cards/turn (played against
Felagrog drawing so many]. Third deck ended with 53 in the deck, shuffled 6 cards and drew 9.3

gave confidence to play twice Forgotten Scrolls. But Vaurak’s 13 prowess did him in.
