Today's culture is Gandalf! These cards include a small new crop of unhasty ents that can skirmish at forest sites, as well as some support cards where Gandalf helps other cultures (particularly by boosting their resistance). Please let me know what you think, tell me what culture you'd like to see next, and check out the other cards in the set so far:

4 •Gandalf, Tharkun Gandalf
Companion • Wizard
Strength: 7
Vitality: 4
Resistance: 7
For each dwelling site in the current region, Gandalf is resistance +1.

You went with ents. Okay.
I do like most of these cards. One thing I'd maybe change, is a limit once per bearer on The Finest Rockets Ever Seen. (Even though maybe I'd change my mind if I knew the hobbits i this set)
For Gandalf's Hat I wouldn't play it in a pure deck but maybe it'd be a good splash card in discard/mill decks? I'm not sure, but right now I do not see the use of this card.
Also I hope that maybe the hobbits will give some more site control? Right now I feel that that is a bit missing.

Good catch on Rockets. I'll add that later. Thanks for the feedback! Hobbits will be getting some limited site path flexibility. When we get there, let me know if you feel it fits.
