The Line Unbroken – 53: Fate of Numenor

Continuing on The Grey Havens, Fate of Numenor brought us the first instance of what could perhaps be seen as another theme within this cycle – of doing interesting and different things with locations. It’s also the key moment in … Continue reading

The Line Unbroken – 52: Voyage Across Belegaer

Well. Turns out I’ve been doing Nightmare quests in The Line Unbroken for over a year at this point. I didn’t antiipate it being quite so long, but I am now returning at last to standard difficulty for The Grey … 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

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 – N14: Nightmare Road to Rivendell

Road to Rivendell is a quest I have an interesting relationship with. Actually that’s a lie, I don’t have much of a relationship with Road to Rivendell to speak of, but the reasons for that are kind of interesting. As … Continue reading

Design Debates: Encounter-based Deckbuilding Encouragement

I’ve had this particular Design Debates post in mind for quite a while, and one of the biggest obstacles to me actually writing it was just that I couldn’t come up with a good summation of the subject for the … Continue reading

The Line Unbroken – N13: Nightmare The Redhorn Gate

While this is definitely going a bit out of sequence, I’m continuing through the Nightmare Dwarrowdelf before going back to the Nightmare Hobbit Saga quests. My card pool for Nightmare Dwarrowdelf will be everything up to Trouble in Tharbad. The … Continue reading
