Action: Discard 1 card from your hand to give Éowyn +1 until the end of the phase. This effect may be triggered by each player once each round.

Slender and tall she was in her white robe girt with silver; but strong she seemed and stern as steel, a daughter of kings.

Eowyn is the most powerful quester in the game. Period. The only other characters with four willpower are T eowyn, Cirdan, the ally Gandalfs, and hero Galadriel. Now Galadriel requires Nenya, and the ally Gandalfs either raise threat or leave play. Cirdan and T Eowyn give her a run for her money but in a four player game Eowyn can bump up to a whopping 8 willpower for only 9 threat cost and a few discards!

This is my favourite hero. Having 4 willpower and to the extend, 5 with a discard, she can quest solo in the early stages and helps gather progress token quickly. Currently, I aim for The Favor of the Lady (+1 willpower) and make her even more powerful. — theodoros 7
