The Choice of Luthien (1R100) Wiki

General Strategy

Along with Arwen's Fate and Gift of the Evenstar, The Choice of Luthien focuses on the relationship between Aragorn and Arwen. It is probably the best card of the three, thanks to its versatility. The ability to transfer wounds from one to the other makes exertion abilities easier to use (Such as Arwen's Fate and Aragorn's Bow), as the player can ensure the character who needs to exert has the most vitality. It also allows the Free Peoples player to balance out wounds between the two characters, rather than having one fully healed and the other at death's door. The Choice of Luthien, being a maneuver card, shields the pair from Hate and Ulaire Enquea, Lieutenant of Morgul, unless both Aragorn and Arwen are near death anyway. It also allows the player to get the best use out of other healing effects (E.g. Aragorn, King in Exile cannot heal himself, but Arwen can heal him via The Choice of Luthien and he can then heal her with his own text). Finally, the card's ability is free to use (Unlike Shoulder to Shoulder), and can be used as often as necessary during each Maneuver phase.
