It is said that the events of the game take place between the events after Hobbit and before LOTR. What you believe, or want, to see in the future regarding Heroes of middle earth and classes?

I am going to start with my favorite hero:

Glorfindel as an emissary class: fighting (70%) - exploration (10%) interacting (20%)

Glorfindel's spirit departed to the Halls of Mandos, where he spent years with the spirits of the others who died. Due to his noble actions, valor and bravery that saved many Elves during the Fall of Gondolin, he was re-embodied after a short time.

A thousand years later, in SA 1600, Manwë sent him back to Middle-earth as an emissary of the Valar and granted him powers nearly as strong as that of the Maiar's.

My wish would be for characters that fit in the region we are playing, Eriador and the Blue Mountains.

The ones that are a must are Elladan and Elrohir for the elves.
Also interesting would be another hobbit, maybe Robin Smallburrow as a Bounder. Or a made up hobbit female hero, which we've never seen in any Middle-earth game. A Brandybuck or Took female hobbit would be nice.

For the dwarves, any dwarf that might hail from the Blue Mountains as a trader would be nice. They use to stop at Bree, so Thalin from FFG's previous games could fit that role, or someone from the surviving Thorin's Company that was restless and didn't settle permanently in Erebor. Balin would fit that role, as he was known to travel to The Shire with Gandalf, for instance (see the final chapter of The Hobbit).

As for the Men, we don't need another Ranger, but a "normal" human from Bree should be interesting.

I’m pretty sure Balin is dead at the time frame for this game.

But all of the above suggestions sound interesting for expansion classes

It depends on the timeframe:
The Quest for Erebor ended in 2941 (end of The Hobbit), which Balin survived.
In 2949,Balin visited The Shire and Bilbo with Gandalf. (A good moment to go on an adventure with both characters!)
In 2989, Balin went to Moria (and should be unusable as a character in the game anymore). He died in 2994.
In 3001, Bilbo celebrates his birthday party and leaves The Shire (start of The Lord of the Rings.
The War of the Ring began in 3018, when Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli first meet in Rivendell.

We could say that, from 2949 to 2989 (at least), Balin is a potential hero to roam Eriador. Specially alongside his old friend Bilbo!

As a side note, Aragorn was on his errantries in Rohan and Gondor (and beyond) from 2957 to 2980.
So, following the canon, there's a frame of years between The Hobbit and LotR when he shouldn't be in Eriador, too.

Let's leave Gimli and Legolas being in The Shire aside, and Bilbo going on an adventure after Smaug, too ;p

When Aragorn was born? And how old was he when the hobbit ended?

He was born in 2931.
So, he was 10 years old by the time of the Quest for Erebor.

Lobelia Sackwill would be super cool female hobbit adventurer!
Weapon: umbrella
Trinket: stolen silver spoon

She did have more attitude than most hobbit characters. One of those who opposed Sharkus mens before wandering hobbits did come home!

There Are tons of characters from Lotr Lcg game that FFG will use, because that game is Also in the same time period.

A young Lobelia would be great!
She was born in 2918, so she was 23 years old by the time of the Quest for Erebor. Hobbits get of age at 33, so she could very well participate in the Journeys' campaigns!




With all those date, I would say that if the campaign for Journeys' was set between 2949 and 2957, then Bilbo, Balin, Aragorn and Lobelia could be (canonwise) playing characters. Of course, playing with Lobelia AND Bilbo in the same fellowship should be forbidden by the rules!! XD

I would like to see Beorn with the ability to transform into the Great Black Bear. Obviously, that would mean two miniatures.
