Due to popular demand, we’re going to put together a Lord of the Rings Legends expansion of 6 decks!
I suggested a LOTRED: Legends expansion back in 2008. Separatist and I discussed it again in 2015, and discussed holding Smaug back from The Hobbit set. Ultimately, Smaug was included in that set, but there are enough other LOTR characters to explore.
James Bungart got things started with his take on Elrond, and then JAG followed with a pretty great Sauron deck. I went ahead and finished out a draft of Isildur and JAG and I are now discussing the Balrog deck.
The set was going to be just those 4 decks, but I was inspired to come up with an Eye of Sauron deck. So, we just need to decide on the 6th deck and it’s looking like it will be Treebeard & Ents though if there was enough interest to do otherwise, we could go with Galadriel & Haldir.
So that’s the Legends set so far:
So, anyone else that others might want to see?
For those that don’t know, LOTR was a collaborative effort in the Epic Duels Online Community in 2007-09, mostly. We released 12 original decks and 4 maps, then followed by an “Armies” expansion with 6 additional decks and 2 additional maps, then a Hobbit expansion with 8 more decks. By adding 6 more Legends decks, we’d have 32 total LOTRED decks, a pretty big set with tons of replayability.
Does anyone out there play LOTRED? Do you play online using Vassal, or have you printed your own decks and found your own figures? Let us know!
