Semi-official FAQ

Last updated: 2022-05-01

The latest Official FAQ 1.9 (from 2017-11-15) can be found here. While we have not yet received any further Official FAQs, we are aware of several rule corrections and typos from official sources and of several card errata that have been discovered through reprints. Therefore, these are “official” in most people’s eyes, so we keep them separate from the ALeP FAQ.

Revised Products Misprints

A few misprints have been discovered by the community in the new LOTR LCG revised line of products (starting with the Revised Core Set, The Dark of Mirkwood, and the Starter Decks). The correct versions of these misprints were confirmed through e-mail by Caleb Grace, but are not yet fixed in printing. Here we have collected all those changes that we currently know about.

Revised Core Set

Campaign Cards [RevCore 129, 130 and 131]

The Mirkwood Paths (Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3) Campaign Cards show an incorrect encounter set icon (The Tower of Cirith Ungol from The Mountain of Fire Saga Expansion for all three Campaign Cards). The correct set icons (Passage Through Mirkwood, Journey Along the Anduin and Escape from Dol Guldur respectively) can be found on the rules sheet.

The Dark of Mirkwood Standalone Scenario

Obsidian Arrows [DoM 26]

Should read: “When Revealed: Deal 2 damage to a character controlled by the first player.”

The Oath Campaign Card – Side A [DoM 50]

Defenders of Gondor Starter Deck

Envoy of Pelargir [DoG 13]

Should have 1 printed Hit Point.

Faramir [DoG 28]

Should have the Traits Gondor. Ranger. Noble.

Helm of Secrecy [DoG 33]

Select a different non-[Fellowship], non-[Baggins] hero from your collection with a threat cost less than or equal to the chosen hero. Swap those heroes, moving all eligible attachments and damage tokens to the hero from your collection.”

Elves of Lórien Starter Deck

Daeron’s Runes [EoL 20]

Should read: “Action: Draw 2 cards. Then, discard 1 card from your hand.”

Elrond’s Counsel [EoL 21]

Should read: “Action: If you control a unique Noldor character, give another character +1 [willpower] until the end of the phase and lower your threat by 3.”

Semi-official FAQ 1.11

In the new LOTR LCG revised line of products (starting with the Revised Core Set and the Starter Decks) a few player cards have received small rule changes, such as updated Traits or slight fixes to wording. Here we have collected all those changes that we currently know about.

The Haradrim Expansion

Dwarf Pipe [H 7]

Should read: “Response: After a card is discarded from your deck, exhaust Dwarf Pipe to place that card on the bottom of your deck.”

Semi-official FAQ 1.10

While we have not yet received an Official FAQ 1.10, between 2017 and 2021 several rule corrections, typos, and card errata have been discovered through reprints or confirmed by official sources. We have collected those in this Semi-Official FAQ 1.10.

Errata

Shadows of Mirkwood Expansion

Over Hill and Under Hill Saga Expansion

Thrór’s Map [OHUH 13]

Should read: “Attach to a hero. Travel Action: Discard Thrór’s Map to choose a location in the staging area. Make that location the active location. (If there is another active location, return it to the staging area.)”

The Vengeance of Mordor Expansion

Helm of Secrecy [VoM 90]

Should read: “Action: Choose a hero you control and discard all tokens from it. Select a different non-[fellowship], non-[baggins] hero from your collection with a threat cost less than or equal to the chosen hero. Swap those heroes, moving all eligible attachments and damage tokens to the hero from your collection.”

Rule Clarification

(1.59) The Long Dark

The rules sheet incorrectly mentions the Hazards of the Pit encounter set instead of the Deeps of Moria. The encounter set icons are correct.

(1.60) Foundations of Stone

The rules sheet incorrectly mentions the Deeps of Moria encounter set instead of the Hazards of the Pit. The encounter set icons are correct.

(1.61) Roam Across Rhovanion

The quest cards show an incorrect encounter set icon (Gathering Gloom). The correct icon (Lost in Wilderland) can be found on the rules sheet.

(1.62) Mount Gundabad

The two unique locations, Dagnir’s Hoard and Throat of the Mountain, should be added to the Сaves deck in addition to the cards from the Lost Caves encounter set.

The rules sheet is incorrect when it states “… the current quest card is flipped at the beginning of the staging step of the quest phase.” Side A of the quest cards are correct in specifying to flip at “… the beginning of the quest phase.”

(1.63) The Fate of Wilderland

There is a typo on two objectives, The Goblins’ Assault and The Heroes’ Defense, where it lists the incorrect quest name (Mount Gundabad) instead of The Fate of Wilderland.
