Guest author Daniel M. defends the city of Annúminas in a new quest feature at Master of Lore.

The Sands of Harad

By now, many players may have picked up the Sands of Harad deluxe expansion and are busy escaping ancient cities, crossing legendary deserts, and forging new alliances with the “bold and grim” Men of the South. But who are these newfound friends and what do we know of their lands and history? Since the cycle was announced back […]

Elfhelm

A tall figure loomed up and stumbled over [Merry], cursing the tree-roots. He recognized the voice of the Marshal, Elfhelm. ‘I am not a tree-root, Sir,’ he said, ‘nor a bag, but a bruised hobbit. The least you can do in amends is to tell me what is afoot.’   The Lord of the Rings […]

To the Sea! To the Sea!

  To the Sea! To the Sea! With the release of The Grey Havens, we are taking to our ships and setting sail to chase dreams on the high seas. But wait! What does the ocean have to do with the lands of Middle-earth? After all, the Fellowship of the Ring was composed of the […]

Denethor

It’s no easy job, managing a kingdom, let alone one on the brink of collapse. Invaders to the east, a lackluster neighbor to the west, pirates to the south, orcs all around, and oh yeah, the devil himself knocking at your doorstep. Let’s not forget that your oldest son is dead (the one you liked) leaving you […]

Jolly old Frodo! He is the protagonist of our favorite story but also, perhaps, […]

Brok Ironfist

One of the distinctive features of the LOTR LCG community has been that we often give as much attention to bad cards as we do to the good ones. Some of the worst get even more. It is like a hobby within the hobby to fixate on a few awful cards until they become an […]

Treebeard

‘I have long ceased to invent…I wait till I seem to know what really happened. Or till it writes itself. Thus, though I knew for years that Frodo would run into a tree-adventure somewhere far down the Great River, I have no recollection of inventing Ents. I came at last to the point, and wrote […]
