The Road Ahead is the second of my five sets that make up the collection Wars of the Ring, the others being: Lasting Alliances, focused on The Hobbit and other pre-FotR events; The Way Into Mordor, focused on The Two Towers; The End Of All Things, originally my final set, focused on Return of the King; and my newest set The Third Age, a Reflections-style set focused on the game LOTR: The Third Age and other events from the time of Frodo’s journey that weren’t in the forefront of the books or movies, as well as a return to some of the material from Lasting Alliances.

This set, The Road Ahead, focuses on events from The Fellowship of the Ring. It continues several new aspects that were introduced in Lasting Alliances:

- A new culture based around Mirkwood (represented by the Green culture icon for the time being). Much like the Gollum culture, Green has both Free Peoples and Shadow cards. The FP side in this set is focused on the Wood-Elves--making Green a second Elven culture--and the Beornings. The Shadow side in this set centers around the Orcs (and Nazgűl) of Dol Guldur. It will be a MUCH smaller culture overall than the massive Green culture found in Lasting Alliances.

- A new unbound keyword, riddle, as well as a grand return of all-but-abandoned keywords like tale, weather, and tracker.

- An all-new strategy of capturing and rescuing characters on both the Free Peoples and Shadow side, working much like capturing and liberating sites.

- Dual-character cards, where two characters share the same card. They work together, fight together, and things go wrong, die together.

- Two new signets (remember those?): Elrond and Thorin. Signets have a big impact again in my sets, though resistance is still around as well.

I haven’t worked out full cardlists yet, but here are the cultures you can expect to see:

approx. 600 Cards: (currently 521 cards)
Ring The One Ring:
2
Dwarven Dwarves: 38
Elven Elves: 70
Gandalf Gandalf: 59
Gollum Gollum (Shadow): 11
Gondor Gondor: 41
Isengard Isengard: 56
Green Mirkwood (FP): 24
Green Mirkwood (Shadow): 10
Moria Moria: 83
Orc Orc: ?
Rohan Rohan: 9
Shire Shire: 55
Sauron Sauron: ?
Wraith Wraith: 63
Sites: ?

I don’t have exact figures on unfinished cultures yet, but as you can see, this set will probably be quite large. Razz Probably end up around 600 (yes, 600) cards. It’s at around 520 at the time of this writing, and we still have the Sauron culture to get through. And sites! Yeah, it’ll be AT LEAST 600 cards. Laughing

Here’s the Ring, and other spoilers will follow as I complete cultures.

The One Ring, So Small a Thing Ring
Strength +2
Vitality +1
Resistance -1
Response: If the Ring-bearer is about to take a wound, he or she wears The One Ring until the regroup phase.
While wearing The One Ring, the Ring-bearer gains hunter 2, and each time he or she is about to take a wound, add 2 burdens or a burden and a threat instead.
“‘Yet may I not even speak of it? For you seem ever to think only of its power in the hands of the Enemy: of its evil uses not of its good.’”

The One Ring, Treasured Heirloom Ring
Strength +1
Vitality +1
Resistance +1
Each other companion of the Ring-bearer’s culture is resistance +1.
Maneuver or Skirmish: Add a burden or exert bearer to wear The One Ring until the regroup phase.
While wearing The One Ring, each time the Ring-bearer is about to take a wound, add X burdens instead, where X is the current region number.
“‘But odd things may happen to people that have such treasures....It may have other powers than just making you vanish when you wish to.’”


If you have any comments about these or any other cards, please PM me, as I’d prefer to leave this thread solely for spoilers. Thanks! Very Happy
