A preview of the third Adventure Pack for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game


When Frodo came at last up on to the flet he found Legolas seated with three other Elves. They were clad in shadowy-grey, and could not be seen among the tree-stems, unless they moved suddenly.
–The Fellowship of the Ring

In The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, each sphere of influence has its own distinctive advantages. Lore excels at card draw and healing, two aspects of the game that make the sphere a natural fit for players inclined to focus on helping others.
With Beravor (Core Set, 12) and Bilbo (The Hunt for Gollum, 1), Lore players can grant other players the additional card draw they need to find cards critical to their strategies or to build timely combinations. Does the Leadership player need to find a Steward of Gondor (Core Set, 26) early? Would the tactics player keep one of his heroes alive if he could just find a copy of Feint (Core Set, 34)? Lore players are often asked to use their heroes to provide others with the vital advantage of extra card draw. For this reason, Beravor is often driven to call upon Unexpected Courage (Core Set, 57) during the game’s quests.
