The time has come for you to form and lead your own fellowship of heroes through immersive story-driven campaigns, each with its own unique narrative and challenges.
Pick three heroes from some of the most emblematic characters of Middle-earth and build your deck around their specific abilities and powers. Each Hero has one of four spheres of influence, Leadership, Lore, Spirit, or Tactics, allowing you to play specific reinforcement cards while in-game. Choose wisely when building your deck and make the most of each of your heroes to get an edge over your opponents during the immersive campaigns. Set in famous locations across Middle-earth, you will enjoy hours of gameplay and choices to write your own adventure that will be sung for ages to come.
While your journeys may contain great challenges, taking advantage of your heroes and decks will earn you victory in battle. Sometimes combining the strength of multiple champions from the same Sphere of Influence to increase its power can help you overcome the swarms of enemies that you will face. You might need to rely on your heroes’ Willpower to increase your Fate Pool and trigger powerful abilities that can turn the tide of battle. There are many ways to win, you must find the deck and strategy that works for your fellowship!
Every quest will require you to experiment with strategies as you confront more and more terrifying foes, ranging from Giant Spiders to fierce Trolls, even hordes of powerful Orcs! The Dark Lord will do everything in his power to prevent you from completing your journey. Watch out for his Threat Pool which can activate story specific events to make your quest more difficult. Take care not to let the Threat Pool reach its maximum… or else it will turn the Eye of Sauron directly on to you!
