    Great episode, as always guys! Devoured it instantly, unfortunately I somehow missed the announcement for book club! Guess I need to check in on Facebook more frequently!

    I love the idea of such themed AP’s for the future…let’s see what FFG has in store for us after the Saga Expansion cycle is finished…

  2. I like the new logo. Make sure to update it everywhere (like Patreon)! 🙂

    Great episode, as usual. I’m interested to see how the scouring of the Shire will work, as well, if (and hopefully when!) the game reaches that points.

    As a side note for Derek: The code to cracking Helm’s Deep is four letters: E-N-T-S
    Merry/Pippin/Treebeard with tons of healing works great, especially with Fellowship Aragorn’s readying effects. I had two Booming Ents at seven attack at one point, and throwing in ally Legolas for much-needed card draw is a huge bonus. Granted, I was playing a multiplayer game when I won with the deck, but getting Resourceful on Aragorn and including The Three Hunters should take care of the lack of readying.

    Great episode! It’s always interesting to hear different ideas of how to integrate more of the book into the card game. As for locations, and wanting to actually be in the Shire and Rohan, that reminded me of a chapter in The Return of the King, Many Partings, where the hobbits travel back to the Shire, passing through Rohan, Dunland, Eriador, and reach Rivendell, and then Homeward Bound and the Scouring of the Shire. If it were to be a quest of some sort there could be multiple encounter sets (like in Over the Misty Mountains Grim, I believe it’s called) with some set aside, and after clearing a certain amount of locations swap encounter sets to the new area, such as Rohan to Dunland and so on.

    Leviticus is the book of law. Numbers is the book of records. (With lots of names, but not completely names.)
