While Middle-earth has places like the Shire or Rivendell that are nice places to kick up your feet and relax, there's also plenty of places where you need to make sure you have your sword, axe, or bow ready to defend yourself. In this preview from Journeys in Middle-earth, Fantasy Flight looks into how combat works in this new, upcoming board game.
From the post:
Middle-earth may be full of beauty, but it is still a dangerous place. One cannot simply wander these lands without encountering some form of trouble. Now that evil forces are gaining power, it’s even more likely that you’ll be beset by Orc marauders, a roving band of Ruffians, or even a fearsome Hill Troll during your campaigns through The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-earth. Your quest must continue despite these threats, however, if you hope to protect Middle-earth and her people.
You’ve already seen how you’ll explore the vast lands of Middle-earth and gotten a glimpse of three of the heroes that can form your Fellowship, as well as three of the distinct roles these heroes can take on. Join us today as we look more closely at the enemies you’ll encounter during your Journeys in Middle-earth!
