Characters at the start of the story will (hopefully) have changed by the end of the story. They go through a whole arc, growing as they learn more about themselves and the world around them. The characters in the Lord of the Rings certainly do. And that's transferred to Journeys in Middle-earth, the upcoming board game from Fantasy Flight. In this preview, we get a look at how that will work within the game.
From the website:
Heroes aren't born; they are made, forged in the fires of battle and adventure. Now, with evil stirring across Eriador, Middle-earth needs new heroes more than ever.
With The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-earth, you have the chance to forge your own hero across immersive campaigns that see you battling powerful foes, discovering lost treasures, and uncovering forgotten lore. Along the way, your heroes will feel the weight of their experiences, honing their skills in six distinct roles and deepening their knowledge of Middle-earth and its people.
Over the course of two previews, we’ve revealed the six heroes that you can embody as you embark on your quest, as well as the six distinct roles these heroes can use. Join us today for a look at how these heroes can grow over the course of your campaigns!
