Yeah it's kind of a fixed Dúnedain Quest (minus the signal trait and mobility).

I'm really excited about it (probably my favorite sentence from the whole book), the side quest, and very curious about the hero (Théodred or Éomer, someone else?)

The artwork for Old Toby is a little strange. Why did they have Old Toby standing in front of a field of corn? It's not like tobacco plants are ugly -- in fact, their broad leaves look quite pretty and would have made for excellent artwork. So why a field of corn instead of a field of tobacco? The "Oh, we don't want to promote tobacco use" argument (which might be the reason that artwork was chosen) seems ... weak, given that we all know what pipe-weed is. (It's explicitly stated to be tobacco in the prologue to Lord of the Rings, chapter 2, "Concerning Pipe-weed"). The only other reason I can come up with is that maybe the artist wasn't that familiar with Lord of the Rings, but that seems unlikely given how much it's entered the popular consciousness by now.

GREAT card, though. Really looking forward to trying a Hobbit/Gandalf Pipe deck again.
