1 The Rarest of Meetings Gandalf
Condition • Support Area
To play, spot a Gandalf companion or ally. Plays on a site.
While you can spot three Ents, this site is a forest and each Orc at this site is strength -1.

I kind of took Strong Arms from set 7 as a template for the first card. Does it describe the three Hunters finding Gandalf? Merry and Pippin finding Treebeard? Treebeard calling the entmoot?

As with my Nazgul/site control cards, the value of this will be determined by the rest of your cards. The cost encourages a multifaceted approach, so maybe there's room for another effect or two?

0 Thick-Trunk Gandalf
Event • Skirmish
Make an Ent strength +1 for each forest on the site path.

Solid start, though it relies heavily on The Rarest of Meetings to be better than Roused (or Boomed and Trumpeted, for that matter). Costs less than Roused though, which is nice flavor.

5 •Trembling Giant Gandalf
Companion • Ent
Strength: 10
Vitality: 4
Unhasty.
Maneuver: Discard a Gandalf condition to make the current site gain forest until the regroup phase.
Assignment: Exert an unbound Hobbit or spot two forests on the adventure path to allow Trembling Giant to skirmish.

Hey! I got to name a card after Pando!

Hey, I got to learn about Pando! This looks like the direction Unhasty should have gone. Ents got what, 3 conditions? 4 with yours, though discarding that card would be pointless. I might prefer the current site to be a forest to promote his ability.

4 • Courageous Instigators Shire
Condition
Vitality: 2
To play, discard Merry and Pippin. Bearer must be Treebeard. Merry and Pippin cannot be played.
Bearer is strength +1 for each Ent you can spot.
Archery: Discard this condition to exert each minion.

Of course, you'll have to make Treebeard lose Unhasty or he'll be a 20 strength pacifist. I'm finally reading The Two Towers and I'm a good way through the Treebeard chapter, and he mentions (as most of you well know) that Trolls are weaker, counterfeit Ents. There's so much room for Ents to be more than large pools of HP in this game, and I encourage any step in that direction. I don't mind the strength, especially since this is a condition with a steep cost.

As for your second thought, why make him a companion? "Each time the Fellowship moves, discard this condition if you can spot a companion in play and stacked on Treebeard. While you can spot at least 2 distinct Hobbits stacked on Treebeard, Treebeard is strength +3 for each distinct Hobbit stacked on him and participates in archery fire and skirmishes." Okay, yeah, it's confusing and wordy. Hey, we come back to Stump and Bramble! What about an event to allow him to skirmish and make him strength +3 for each card stacked on him? Tongue

What I want to see is more ways to use an Ent's vitality than losing skirmishes and taking archery fire. And also continued use of Unhasty as a key trait. As a subculture, Ents probably have fewer cards than Dunland or Corsairs in Movie block... I think you guys are right, they're the real victims of Towers block.

Welcome to tLHH and welcome back to the game!

Take a look in the Archives of Minas Tirith (http://lotrtcgwiki.com/forums/index.php/board,2.0.html): I would start with the Official Rulebooks thread pinned to the top.  Download a starter rulebook, and it will walk you through a game.

The wiki (http://lotrtcgwiki.com/wiki/start) has articles on rules/keywords for you to search.  This isn't as much a "learn to play guide" as a "I have a question about what this does" layout, but a good resource nonetheless.

Sorry for this question, I just found out that there's a community still alive for the game.
That said, I haven't played in now, I believe 10 years?
I've forgotten many of the rules. Is there an online database of the rules?
Thank you!
