How well do the Revised Core set, and starter sets play with the ALeP Expansions? There are symbols I don’t recognize in the Children of Eorl in the questing text, and I didn’t know if I needed other expansions to understand these. Thanks for your help!
I am mainly trying to figure out what the keyhole looking icon on the first quest of the Children of Eorl is. Or maybe it is a game piece icon. Which ever, it is throwing me for a loop.
Hi. You will be fine. The encounter cards from the Deluxe expansion of children of eorl are needed to play the rest of the alep oaths of rohirrim cycle, but no encounter cards from any of the games official expansions are needed. . So if you have the coreset and some starter decks you are good to go.
Hi. You are good to go. No encounter cards from any of the games expansions are required to play the alep oaths of the rohirrim cycle. You do need to have children of eorl to play the rest of the adventure packs from the cycle though. If you have the coreset and some starter decks you are ready to play! If you don’t have the alep cards yet, feel free to jump in on the group order I am setting up. Lots of other great content in there too.
Sorry for the double post. I didn’t think the first one went through.
Thanks Doug! I appreciate the feedback. My main question with the first scenario trying to figure out what the keyhole looking icon on the first quest of the Children of Eorl is. Or maybe it is a game piece icon. Which ever, it is throwing me for a loop.
What exact quest card (name) are you referring to. I have the actual cards so I can take alook for you.
Battle on the Hill
Sorry, Battle for the Hill
Hey. Thanks guys for the mention of my mb print group order I am putting together. Small correction, I am not adding all of the fan content ever made, but definitely a lot of it. Some of the older quests like Ninjadorgs and MJ Newman’s from before she joined FFG may not play as well today as they once did, but I still think there is a lot of content that would be great for both newer players and veterans looking for a little variety. Btw, I am also adding the Purple Wizards challenge deck and his epic multilayer adaptations you mentioned as well, and much more. There is more info on the LOTR Facebook group in the featured posts, and I will keep everyone updated there too. I have had some very positive feedback from the community and there is a ton of enthusiasm out there for this! Anyway, thanks again for the mention and I hope to have this order up within the next few weeks. Take care. Doug B
