Coming to the end of another re-read of the Lord of the Rings Saga and having just listen to the latest anniversary episode of the Grey Company podcast. I've more excited for this game than every before and have been inspired to put together my own little wish-list for the game.. Knowing that the developers read these forums from time to time, I thought I might list some my random things I'd love to see added to the game.

Characters

Radagast hero.
Thranduil hero.
Gwaihir hero.
Gandalf the White - Hero or Ally
Wilyador Ally (accompanied by some kick ass art of a eagle with a scar from his encounter near Rhosgobel.)


The 5th saga expansion

I would assume that this box is well into development, however here are a few things I'd love to see in it.

More support for the combined Gondor + Rohan deck.
A Merry hero/ally with the Rohan and hobbit trait.
A Pippin hero/ally with the Gondor and hobbit trait.
And of course, what we are all waiting for, tactics Eowyn! (maybe with a Dernhelm attachment)


The 7th saga expansion and future content

We're getting closer and closer to the end of the saga expansions. I would love to see events covered that happened during the war of the ring but were not part of the main story.

The battle of Dale,
The battle of Lorien
The battle under the trees.

I would like to see an Gencon/ fellowship event quest revisiting the hobbit, with a quest representing the escape from the elf palace and the barrel ride. Perhaps using a mechanic of, all heroes and allies must have a barrel item attached to remain progress and remain alive. The barrels would be restricted attachments and the deck would also have treacheries that hurt restricted attachments.

Thanks FFG for producing this fine game I'll be enjoying for many years to come.

That "War of the Ring" Saga Expansion has been discussed already here and on FFG forums, and I totally agree with you, we need it!

Am I only one who would be super excited to see a Rosie Cotton hero card? I think it would be cool to play out some adventures for Sam and Rosie post LOTR.

If we ever get to see a Battle of Bywater adventure then it would be cool to see a Farmer Cotton hero card as well.

Any additional new hobbit heroes would be awesome IMO.

I was wondering if any other Hobbits are name-checked enough in the books to warrant hero status. It may be that FFG will need to make up some Hobbits if they want new heroes, because outside of the four Fellowship hobbits, Bilbo and Fatty not a ton of Hobbits have much development in the books. Maybe the Gaffer?

Ted Sandyman could make an interesting Grima-like "hero", as could Otho and Lobelia Sackville-Baggins...

I wouldn't mind some FFG created hobbit characters. I'm all for expanding the Hobbit options. Right now we have lots of support and only six characters to build decks around.

I'd still like to see some smaller characters get a chance for a "what if" scenario. It would be fun to see Rosie, Sam and the Gaffer escort Frodo to Mount Doom.

If we ever get a cycle set after LOTR it would be nice to see maybe a few of Sam's thirteen kids go on adventures. I'd have to imagine having a hero father would inspires some of those kids to travel outside the Shire. Also both Merry and Pippin had kids after LOTR if I recall correctly.

Along with the Heroes named above I would like to see a better version of hero Bilbo.

I think it's unfortunate that Dagger of Westernese is the best weapon available to most characters. I want player card versions of Glamdring, Orcrist, Anduril and Sting.

It would also be nice to have player card versions of Mithril Shirt, Phial of Galadriel, The Arkenstone and a better Palantir.

It would also be cool to have a player card version of "Bilbo's Magic Ring".

I'd like a useful version of radagast. I don't know why the designers made him so weak. He is still an Istari after all. Also if we have a grima hero why don't we have a saruman hero?

Two more ent Heros would be nice so that we can finally get a ent only deck if we wanted to.

And three eagle heroes would be nice for the same reason.

I'd love a few quests that don't allow readying effects from cards or resource generation from cards to give people more deck building headaches. That's probably my number one wish.

I agree. Seriously Radagast needs some love. I never use his ally card. I'm surprised we haven't gotten a Saruman hero card yet considering we've gotten every other known member of the White Council in hero form. I'm sure he did plenty of heroic things before he was outed as a traitor. As long as that heroic thing didn't contradict one of his own ambitions.

Just a quick idea but this might be a cool version of saruman:

Saruman

Threat: 15
Willpower: 3
Attack: 5
Defense: 2
Hp: 5

Action: once per round Take control of a non-unique enemy in the staging area and raise your threat by the threat of that enemy. Return that enemy to the staging area during the next refresh phase.
