Errata Rapidly Needed

For the more experience LotR TCG players, get ready for another 'broken' card. With The Hunters comes Rapid Reload:

By itself, the card is pretty powerful. For two or three twilight you can get out an Evil Man, and with this combo on the table, all left over twilight becomes an exertion (essentially a wound) on an unbound companion. No big deal right? Just don't give your opponent too much twilight.

Wrong. Add on an oldie but a goodie, Demoralized:

Now your fellowship is in trouble, because each exertion ads back a twilight. Drop two of these conditions out and each exertion only costs one twilight. Drop one more...You get the picture.

Together these easy to obtain, easy to play cards can exhaust a fellowship FOR FREE.

You've got two options: Play only Ring-bound companions (not likely with the majority of them being roated out with the Tower block), or get rid of all Evil Men before the Archery phase (more likely, but more expensive). The best option? Have Decipher X-list or errata Rapid Reload before your fellowship gets too demoarlized to make it past Site 5!

In honor of some of the incredibly disturbing Gollum costumes from Halloween, a Gollum card!

At first glance, this may not seem like the most intimidating card. Take a second glance. This bad boy will deal one wound to any companion with strength 8 or more. Key companions like Aragorn, and then pretty much anyone with a weapon, can be killed by this card!

As a Regroup event you'll need to play it at sites 5-7 to slow your opponent down. But for the easy task of keeping Shelob alive, all you need to do is stack one or two copies of this card in your Shelob/Gollum decks and your opponent will be seeing his Fellowship fall to Unseen Foes!
