Dark Followers

Following up on the theme of Followers, I wanted to showcase a Follower for the Shadow side, Saruman. Just like Followers for the Free Peoples side, these cards can be added on to minions during the Maneuver phase. Saruman gives a strength bonus in addition to an exertion to the defending companion. Add him on to a fierce or damage +1 minion and you can easily kill most companions!

Follow You to Whatever End

I decided to add the "Followers" gadget to the right side of the blog so that any readers can add themselves to show their support of the blog.

In conjunction, I thought it would be fun to show off some Followers from the Lord of the Rings TCG.

This new mechanic was added in the Bloodlines expansion and essentially replaced Allies. Instead of being actual characters that could be targeted by spells, Followers were just played to the support area, and called upon during the Maneuver Phase to perform some bonus.

While seemingly un-powerful, Daddy Twofoot provided a nice update to the Unheeded Deck I previously blogged about.

Follow me and check back often to see what other characters became followers of the Fellowship.
