An evil is brewing in Middle-earth. And I don't mean that orcs have opened up a microbrewery and are selling Orcish Ale (it has chunks of meat in it!). No, Something far more sinister is afoot. And it's up to the civilized races to find out just what that is. That's the story in Journeys in Middle-earth, a new board game coming from Fantasy Flight. In this preview, we get a look at the different heroes and how they work.
From the post:
A great evil is spreading across Middle-earth, and none—Elves or Men, Hobbits or Dwarves—are free from its vile touch. If they are to survive this menace, the Free Peoples must band together, combining their wisdom and might to stand against the shadow creeping across the land.
In The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-earth, you and your friends are invited to form your own Fellowship of legendary heroes and set off on a quest to rid the land of these evils. With six unique heroes available, who you choose to play reverberates throughout an entire campaign, shaping your approach to the challenges that come with each new adventure. But it does not fully determine your fate. As you hone your skills throughout your adventures, you’ll also have the chance to take on different roles in your group, developing new skills and discovering new ways to overcome the trials you’ll face.
Join us today as we preview three of the heroes found in The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-earth and three of the distinct roles they can play in your Fellowship!
