  1. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    I'll throw down another Daughter of the Nimrodel, paying 1 from each of my heros.

    Also, I have Radagast's Cunning in hand, so if we see a critter show up in the staging area that has a high Threat Strength, I can negate that.
  2. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    If the Blade works with Legolas, I'll pay one from him to Attach the Blade to him.
  3. boogiepop Member

    Since they're still attacks (The Ranged ability merely expands your potential targets.) you can indeed work splendidly with Legolas.

    I got most of this taken care of. Will get the rest done tonight.
  4. boogiepop Member

    Got it done, and 5 resources from Gloin and Theodred to play:

    (U) Faramir // Type: Ally // Sphere: Leadership Cost: 4 // Willpower: 2 Attack: 1 Defense: 2 Hit Points: 3 // Gondor. Noble. Ranger.
    Action: Exhaust Faramir to choose a player. Each character controlled by that player gets +1 Willpower until the end of the phase.

    (U) Snowbourn Scout // Type: Ally // Sphere: Leadership Cost: 1
    Willpower: 0 Attack: 0 Defense: 1 Hit Points: 1 // Rohan. Scout.
    Response: After Snowbourn Scout enters play, choose a location. Place 1 progress token on that location.

    I used the Scout's ability on one of the Forest Webs.

    Time to quest. I'll be doing what I always do, questing with all 3 of my heroes and readying Aragorn.
  5. turgy22 Nothing Special

    I will quest with Eowyn and both Lorien Guides.
  6. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I always use Thalin, of course.

    Hey, referring back to turgy22's explanation of combat

    It's basically like Magic, right? The enemy attacks players, determined by the playing order, and the players choose who to use to block.
  7. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    In the interest of us actually getting some progress (!!), I'll send Beravor, Glorfindel, and Gleowine.

    Also, boogiepop, at the end of each turn (round, whatever), can you post a little summary of what happened? I particularly don't understand when things like progress tokens and such are happening, so it would be really nice to see it collected in one post right before we refresh.
  8. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    You mean a summary different from the Game State thread that's Stickied?
  9. turgy22 Nothing Special

    I think rokapoke means specifically a summary of the last turn, not just the current game state.
  10. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    Yeah, I want a "We did this, which caused this to happen" post... this game is so different from what I'm used to, so I still don't know a lot of what's going on.
  11. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Ah, okay. Yeah, that's a good idea. :)
  12. boogiepop Member

    Yeah, Spidey, I guess it's a little bit like Magic as far as combat is concerned.

    And I'll post a turn summary as requested. I'm sorry I haven't done a better job at clearing things up for you guys.

    Back to the game...
    I'm going to use Faramir's power on myself, giving each of my heroes +1 Willpower.

    Quest Phase

    The Lorien Guides immediately place 1 progress token each on our current location, which is the Forest Gate. It already had 2, so 4 progress tokens in total have been placed on it, which is enough for it to be discarded. :)

    1st Encounter
    Forest Gate
    Type: Location
    Encounter Set: Passage Through Mirkwood
    Threat: 2 Quest Points: 4
    Forest.
    Response: After you travel to Forest Gate, the first player may draw 2 cards.

    2nd Encounter
    Hummerhorns
    Type: Enemy
    Encounter Set: Spiders of Mirkwood
    Threshold: 40
    Threat: 1 Attack: 2 Defense: 0 Hit Points: 2/3
    Creature. Insect.
    Forced: After Hummerhorns engages you, deal 5 damage to a single hero you control.
    ----
    Shadow: Deal 1 damage to each character the defending player controls. (2 damage instead if this attack is undefended.)
    Victory 5.

    Thalin deals 1 damage to it.

    3rd Encounter
    King Spider
    Type: Enemy
    Encounter Set: Spiders of Mirkwood
    Threshold: 20
    Threat: 2 Attack: 3 Defense: 1 Hit Points: 2/3
    Creature. Spider.
    When Revealed: Each player must choose and exhaust 1 character he controls.
    ----
    Shadow: Defending player must choose and exhaust 1 character he controls. (2 characters instead if this attack is undefended.)

    Thalin deals 1 damage to it.

    We have a When Revealed effect. Turgy, do we let this one slide?
  13. turgy22 Nothing Special

    There's nothing I can do to prevent that.
  14. boogiepop Member

    I just read your post in my mailbox and thought it was in response to our Sports League game, specifically to the "my brain isn't working" comment I just made. :p

    I'll exhaust the Snowbourn Scout.
  15. turgy22 Nothing Special

    Yeah, that too.

    I will exhaust Eleanor.
  16. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    I'll exhaust Denethor.
  17. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Cripes. I'll exhaust Gimli.
  18. boogiepop Member

    Last card is
    Dol Guldur Orcs
    Type: Enemy
    Encounter Set: Dol Guldur Orcs
    Threshold: 10
    Threat: 2 Attack: 2 Defense: 0 Hit Points: 3
    Dol Guldur. Orc.
    When Revealed: The first player chooses 1 character currently committed to a quest. Deal 2 damage to that character.
    ----
    Attacking enemy gets +1 ATK. (+3 ATK instead if this attack is undefended.)

    I'd like to nominate Gloin as the one to receive this damage. (Heal please, rokapoke! :) )

    So far we have 6 willpower from rokapoke, 7 from turgy, 1 from Spidey, and 10 from myself (including Faramir's action.) That makes a total willpower of 24!

    The total threat is only 14. We needed only 6 more to progress to the next stage of the quest, and so we do so. It reads:

    A Fork in the Road
    Type: Quest
    Scenario: Passage Through Mirkwood
    Encounters: ,Dol Guldur Orcs,Passage Through Mirkwood,Spiders of Mirkwood,
    Quest Points: 2
    Forced: When you defeat this stage, proceed to one of the 2 "A Chosen Path" stages at random.
    ----
    As you move through Mirkwood, hounded by spiders, the forest path forks before you...
    Unsure of what lies ahead but spurred by the urgency of your message, you choose a path and proceed...

    Progress points do not spill over into new quests, so it'll probably be just one more turn before we get to the third and final stage.

    Travel phase. Where to?
  19. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    Agreed, boogiepop. Gloin takes the damage, and he will be healed for 2 at the first opportunity.
  20. turgy22 Nothing Special

    Old Forest Road seems like the only appealing option.
