Deck: Incánus in the South

There’s a bit of a story behind how I came to build this deck. A while back, with the full LotR Saga campaign being on OCTGN, my brother and Qwaz and I started a three-player campaign (which I may have … Continue reading

The Line Unbroken – 56: Thing in the Depths

Thing in the Depths is interesting among other reasons because it has two quest-specific encounter sets rather than just the one – which presumably is the reason why it had one less player card than usual (the additional card being … Continue reading

The Line Unbroken – 55: Flight of the Stormcaller

Alright, Flight of the Stormcaller. Rated by some people as one of the best adventure packs this game has had, and pretty reasonably since it’s a great quest and gave us one of the best glue heroes we have and … Continue reading

The Line Unbroken – N32: Nightmare Blood of Gondor

Ah, Blood of Gondor. My least favourite quest in the Against the Shadow cycle by a wide margin. Its primary mechanic, hidden cards, tends to turn the levels of randomly getting screwed by the shuffle of the encounter deck to … Continue reading

The Line Unbroken – N31: Nightmare Assault on Osgiliath

Assault on Osgiliath was one of my favourite quests from the Against the Shadow cycle. The mechanic of taking control of locations mixes things up enough to be interesting but mostly the quest just stands on the solid basic game … Continue reading

The Line Unbroken – N30: Nightmare Encounter at Amon Din

Encounter at Amon Din is somewhat infamous for its incredibly drastic shift from standard difficulty into Nightmare mode. The original quest, while it can have some unpleasant twists under certain circumstances, is one of the easiest quests in the game. … Continue reading
