    […] original and fun decks, and thus one of my favorites. I will give some credit to Geektopia’s Quinlan Vos deck for helping me balance it […]

      I don’t have those or the Marvel decks either. If someone wants to give me all the card descriptions, I’ll post pages for those.

    Hi, I was a backer on kickstarter but was unable to afford it on the date you needed payment, is there any way of being able to pay for a copy or has the chance gone?
    Thanks

      Hello, thanks for your interest. The campaign has ended, so you will have to wait until it goes to retail to buy it. We’ll make an announcement here when it does, or you can sign up for our newsletter.

  • From Maulsanta on Bilbo Baggins

    Could you specify the function of sting? Which damage does it double? Previous damage up to 6? Following damage up to 6? Does it have to be damage from the same turn? Having difficulty because there’s nothing specific to the description. Could you possibly give an example? Not sure if it means 6 base damage before doubling or up to 6 doubled damage as well. Thanks! Love playing all of these decks and appreciate the work put in!

      Hi, thanks for your interest.

      Any damage done by STING as an A4 is doubled. If it is defended with a D3, it does 2 damage (1 damage doubled). If it is defended with a D2, it does 4 damage (2 damage doubled). If it is defended with a D1, it does 6 damage (3 damage doubled). If it is not defended, it does 6 damage (4 damage doubled is 8, but the card says “up to 6 total”). Hope that helps.

        Thank you! So it only applies to STING and no other bilbo cards correct? Does this also mean it can apply to the STING card in the Frodo/Sam deck?

          It applies only to Biblo’s STING card — no other Bilbo cards, no other STING cards.

    This is a Potential Baddass List, NOT A KILL COUNT.
    It’s A Kill Count that I need. (Don’t ask why, it’s a secret mission… Ubiquitous Mendacious Polyglotal.)

      Hi Lois, thanks for your interest. Anyone adjacent to an Ewok or C-3P0 takes 2 damage, and for each damaged character, you discard a card. What’s not clear?

    Avasarala may not be a fighter, but she did make choices that cost a lot of belters their lives after the ring gates opened.

    • From roman on 10 Deadliest Characters in The Expanse

      She may not use guns, knives or fists, but Chrisjen is absolutely a fighter! One of the feistiest fighters in the series. She’s also called on to make one extremely difficult decision after another and can’t be expected to get them all correct.

    Would you be willing to share any clunky/unused fighters or moves/combos, either online or offline, that fans could print-and-play?

      Hi James, thanks so much for your interest. I’ve been meaning to respond to your prior comment. Yes, I can share some of those ideas. There is a bit of a formula to the power moves I can share as well. Just a bit busy right now.

      As for Wizard Bags & Biscuits, thanks for your interest in that as well. However, we will likely be announcing another project shortly.

      Hi Doug, do you mean the figures? They are very hard to find these days. The figures page at the Wiki is your best resource, and you can ask questions there as well:

  • From Freaky Mutant Man on The Nazgul

    These have always been big favorites of mine for as long as I’ve been playing with the LOTR sets (so as far back as, like, 2016/2017) – they just feel good to play, and always feel effective without being overwhelmingly so. When I don’t know who else to play, they’re a common go-to, and in my experience new players are often drawn to them even if their unconventionality might make them somewhat poor picks to introduce the game with.

  • From Carter on Epic Duels

    Hey!

    I’ve been a big fan of LOTR epic duels, printed it all off and enjoyed all the decks. I’ve been trying to make my own, just wondering if you have the base photoshop files for the original 18 decks. They look so beautiful and I would like to continue the art style in my decks that I’m making!

    If you happen to have those it would be so amazing, I’d definitely publish my characters too. Also if you have the star wars epic duel base photoshop files that would be killer!

    Thanks for everything already! I love this community

    • From roman on Cage Match!

      Hi James. Thanks for asking, but it doesn’t look likely. We have some other projects going right now. Maybe we can do some fan-made stuff.

      • From James Reynolds on Cage Match!

        Fair enough. The not really a need for heavy weights since weight classes are represented on the Hit Point chart and really just for flavor and game length.

        I guess, just new fighters is the only thing needed. With time, my first idea was just to gender swap the existing, tested, fighters to allow for larger tournaments.

        You mention doing some fan made stuff, are there any art files or design philosophies you would care to share with the fans?

        Did you guys have any formula or pattern that you used to create the individual moves and combos?

        Would you be willing to share any clunky/unused fighters or moves/combos, either online or offline, that fans could print-and-play? Possibly the Advanced Mode that you mentioned in a design diary post.

        I can’t wait to check out what you do with Wizard Biscuits & Wizard Bags since the first game I designed at 11 or 12 was Knight Ball, a rules variation of croquet. I love this type of game design – simple and fun.

        Thanks for your time

          So, if you look at the Hook, it does 3 damage. Anyone can add 2 focus, and do a hook for up to 7 damage. So, if a special move is going to be a Hook, and it’s going to cost 2 focus, it really needs to do at least 8 damage (if not 9) or there’s nothing “special” about it, it’s just a Hook that anyone can do.

          So that’s really the formula: Pick your move (Hook, Round Kick, etc.) and give it a fun name, start with 2 focus and give it just a little more damage than what the standard move with 2 focus would do to make it special. From there you can play with it, maybe increase the dice and/or damage, or throw in a fun “critical hit” like Kentaro’s Whirlwind Kick, we probably need more of those.

          For the ground moves it’s all a bit trickier, but again, anyone can use 1 focus and add +1 to their dice, so a special move needs to be just a tick better than that. I felt like there were more submission moves to explore in an expansion.

          One clear idea I had for a heavyweight is a Chuck Lidell type. His special ability is +2 to all Jabs, which is so devastating against ground types that I’d only give him one special, a big Hook of some sort.

  • From Justin on LOTRED - Print and Play

    Hello! I was super excited to come across this site and LOTRED content. My brother and I have been playing SWED since we were kiddos, and still play to this day. I am going to try to print a *core box* of this game consisting of the first 12 Heroes. I noticed that those files are JPG while later expansions you have are PDF, and wanted to see if anyone made the PDF versions for the older files?
    If not, do you have a way of sharing better quality or original files for those? Printing quality on the JPG is not very good and I think there is a lot of compression on the JPG download. I tested a PDF, and those are printing great!
    I will definitely share my results if I can get stuff to come out good! My hope is to have a sweet surprise to bring to game night. 😉
    Thank you! and thanks to all who have contributed! This content is absolutely amazing!

    Hi can i summon 3 clones at the start of in exchange for 3 health at the start of my turn, or is this once per turn?

      I would ask on boardgamegeek but I’m pretty sure it’s just the one per turn.

    “Alternates between being passive and angry”. Between that and Anakin’s Anger/Calm combo, passive-aggressiveness and mood swings must run in the family

    having a small issue when printing out this deck, for some strange reason the last page will not align with the deck. it gets printed to the side and cut off, any idea on how to fix this?

      Strange, I don’t see anything different about this deck versus the others. By last page, you mean the last 4 cards? Or the card backs?

  • From Separatist18 on Luthen Rael

    I’d just maybe suggest adding additional text to “Sacrifice” to avoid an inevitable rules debate. Either “if you have no spies remaining, you can’t play this card” or “If you have one or more spies on the board, destroy one”. Obviously the main difference being whether or not you can play the A8 if you don’t have any spies in the game, but currently it would come down to subjective interpretation which I could see being annoying for people.

    IDK if this would be in character or not, but it might be interesting to do “If there are no spies on the board, Luthen takes 1 damage” after the second flavor text, so Luthen is always sacrificing *something* for the A8.

    • From roman on Luthen Rael

      It does not require the sacrifice of a spy, making a better card later in the game when your spies might already be destroyed, because you already “sacrificed” them. Plus it would be really weak if you HAD to destroy a spy — that’s a big penalty, and the main reason why Luke Rebel Commando’s EXPLOSIVE CHARGE card doesn’t work very well.

      I like the 1 damage idea, but once I clear up the wording, adding the part about “otherwise do 1 damage” gets too wordy.

    Rob Daviau & Co.: We had ridiculously high Power Defence in the game, such as 12 or 15, because back then we though power attack would go even higher.
