    I don't know that Denethor will be able to use his ability this turn since the encounter deck is currently empty. I'll check when there's an opportunity during the quest phase once the deck gets reshuffled.

    I'll quest with all my heroes and Brok. Faramir will give turgy's guys a boost.

    So if the encounter deck is empty, I don't need to quest with Thalin?

    It refreshes as needed during the questing phase. Never before or after.
    So Thalin will still be of use once questing has begun.

    All righty, Thalin goes a-questing.

    Northern Ranger adds counters, removing one of the Great Forest Webs in the process.

    1st Encounter

    East Bight Patrol
    Type: Enemy
    Threshold: 5
    Threat: 3 Attack: 3 Defense: 1 Hit Points: 2
    Goblin. Orc.

    2nd Encounter

    Driven by Shadow
    Type: Treachery
    When Revealed: Each enemy and location currently in the staging area gets + 1 Threat Strength until the end of the phase. If there are no cards in the staging area, Driven by Shadow gains surge.

    That's plus 5 treachery. What say you, Turgy?

    That would put the threat level at 16 and we currently have 27 willpower with two cards left to reveal. This seems like something we can easily overcome. I'll let it slide.

    3rd
    Forest Gate
    Type: Location
    Encounter Set: Passage Through Mirkwood
    Threat Threashold:
    Threat Strength: 2 Quest Points: 4
    Forest.
    Response: After you travel to Forest Gate, the first player may draw 2 cards.

    4th
    Old Forest Road
    Type: Location
    Encounter Set: Passage Through Mirkwood
    Threat Threashold:
    Threat Strength: 1 Quest Points: 3
    Forest.
    Response: After you travel to Old Forest Road, the first player may choose and ready 1 character he controls.

    That puts the threat at 19. As turgy pointed out, we've exceeded that by a long shot. So much, in fact, that we put enough progress tokens down to complete the final stage of our quest.

    Well, it took quite a while to finish (mostly because I've got a hectic schedule these days,) but I do hope you guys got some enjoyment from it. It's an interesting system. I think I see a case for 2 player, though. This was rather easy once we got some traction. Solo, on the other hand, is ball-crushingly tough. The second quest alone I played maybe a dozen times before beating it.

    Anyway, thanks for playing, gents. Good times! :)

    Thanks for running it. I had fun. Definitely enjoyed learning about the game.

    Cool game.

    I think playing with all four decks definitely helped as they all had strengths that made up for other weaknesses. My deck seemed pretty focused on fighting and even then, I didn't have to use a lot of cards (maybe I should have?) to get past the battles. If it had to go solo, it probably wouldn't have done nearly as well.
