[hero resource] Searching for Rings

Post by Zarathustra » Mon Jan 02, 2006 7:33 pm

This deck is probably best played against heroes so that you don't have to worry about the minion arkenstone.  Give it a try: I've never played it, and I'd like to know how good it is.

Starting Cards:

Thrain II
Balin or Gloin
Oin
Kili
Fili

2 Rumors of Rings

In Deck:

3 Radagast & Thorin

(or 3 Pallando & Cirdan)

Resources:

3 Precious Gold Ring
3 Fair Gold Ring
3 Beautiful Gold Ring

1 Blue Mountain Dwarves

1 Gollum

2 Marvels Told
2 Test of Form
3 Smoke Rings
1 Longbottom Leaf
3 Crept Along Carefully
3 Concealment
3 Thorough Search
2 A Friend or Three

Key Sideboard Cards:

1 A Chance Meeting
3 Dwarven Rings
3 Lesser Ring
2 Magic Ring of Savagery
2 Magic Ring of Courage
1 A Friend or Three
1 Marvels Told
1 Test of Form
2 Wizard's Test
1 Tom Bombadil
1 Petty Dwarves

Play Tips:

Focus on easy sites in the Misty Mountains vicinity: Ost-in-Edhil, Goblin Gate, Gladden Fields, Bandit Lair, Isengard, Moria.  Make a run over to the Blue Mountain Dwarf-Hold for your faction.  With 3 Crept Alongs, your main company has 5 skilled dwarves and a hazard limit of 2.  Try to get 2 gold rings out of each site; if you can't at least you should be well-protected vs. rolled Down to the Sea.  The rest is pretty self-explanatory I think.  Throw in the Scroll if you want to be sure to get some Dwarven Rings.

MP Breakdown:

Character: 10
Ally: 2-5
Faction: 3-5
Item: ~15
Total: ~25-30

You are mixing in some minion resources.

Bright Gold Ring
Crept Along Cleverly

I suppose you meant Fair Gold Ring for the Bright Gold.....
Did you have in mind Many Turns and Doublings instead of Crept Along Cleverly?

Fixed now.

I meant Fair Gold and Crept Along CAREfully.

Is it possible: placing "off to the side" minion ring special items with Rumors of Rings (or hero ring special items with Whispers of Rings)? Or is it considered as affecting of item?
We will not speak of such things even in the morning of the Shire.

Looks like I mixed up a further hero/minion pair.  I meant the hero ranger-ring.
