The authors of this game did Bilbo dirty. Why 9 threat!? He should be 6, maybe 7. If he were he'd be much more playable. Most heroes' threat is the sum of their attributes. Not sure why Bilbo is an outlier.
Hero. Threat: 9. 1 1 2 2
Response: After Bilbo Baggins commits to the quest, choose an enemy in the staging area. Until the end of the phase, Bilbo Baggins gets +X where X is that enemy’s . If the players quest successfully, deal 1 damage to that enemy (2 damage instead if it is guarding a card).
