“Dire deeds awake, dark is it eastward. Let horse be bridled, horn be sounded! Forth Eorlingas!“ – The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien
You have escaped the Glittering Caves and appeased the wraith of Helm Hammerhand only to hear from the renegade Gálmód that all of Rohan is in grave danger. Ealdwulf, King Thengel’s traitorous advisor, and descendant of Prince Haleth, is determined to reclaim his ancestral throne. With vows of land, steel, and glory, he has gathered the ferocious Dunlendings to win back their ancient homeland. As hordes of foes amass at the Isen, you must rally those whose hearts are true. For honor and oath, you shall muster the Rohirrim!
A Long-extended Party is pleased to announce Mustering of the Rohirrim, the fifth adventure pack in the Oaths of the Rohirrim cycle. As with all ALeP projects, this adventure pack is a fan-created scenario, free to download, and is intended to honor and extend the legacy of the greatest card game in Middle-earth.
To gather the hosts of the Rohirrim, you must race against time to clear special Mustering side quests before you are overcome by the horde of traitors at the Isen. Beware, for if you linger too long, you will face the terrible retribution of Ealdwulf’s betrayal in the form of the disastrous effects that make up the Massing deck. Your journey to hold the traitors at bay will take you over many leagues in this daunting quest as you rally the Riders of Rohan for the final battle.
Surrounded by foes and beset by treachery, you will need aid to overcome the hosts of Ealdwulf. But help can come in many forms…
Men of the Woods
From the Vales of the Anduin is heard a fierce battle cry as Rowan leaps into the fray! With a strong will and a resourceful spirit, this stout Woodman warrior will never let down her guard. Her unprecedented ability to change the first player token gives her the versatility to choose which player receives boosts from location attachments, allowing her to optimally strengthen your fellowship as a powerful supportive hero. A brave leader, Rowan also gives the Woodman trait access to the Leadership sphere and built-in resource generation.
And Rowan is not alone; she has brought some Hunting Dogs with her!
Sporting the Devoted keyword, a flexible stat line, and a strong readying effect, Hunting Dogs are trained to hunt down and destroy their prey at the call of their master. One of the few Spirit allies with a strong attack, these versatile hounds will fit well with many heroes, be they Woodmen or Wizards.
Ever ones to strengthen their friends, the Woodmen keep a goodly board, and those who rest at a Woodmen’s Outpost are wise indeed. Traveling to a Woodmen’s Outpost will boost the strength of each ally controlled by the first player, and they will return to action renewed and ready for battle.
A Long-extended Party
Fire and foes have overtaken the land of Rohan. The traitors have massed their hordes at the Isen. Will you lead the Rohirrim to victory? Or will you too succumb to their treachery?
Mustering of the Rohirrim will be released for DragnCards and Print & Play this June!
I’m so excited! I love ALEP and all that you guys do for us!!!!!!
