In this series I am trying to use as many thematic cards as possible as I play the Lord of the Rings Saga quests in order, in a modified campaign mode. The modification is that I will not be raising my threat if I swap heroes in-between quests.

Frodo needs time, and Aragorn can give him some. By gathering what force he can and heading to the Black Gate of Mordor. Joined by Gandalf, Éomer, Gimli and a LOT of other free peoples he will attempt to buy Frodo and Sam time to destroy The One Ring and end the rule of Sauron.

Aragorn brings the Banner of Elendil, Celebrían's Stone, Andúril, and other Raiment of War. Gandalf is upon Shadowfax, and Eomer rides Firefoot armed with a Spear of the Mark, Glamdring, and Gandalf's Staff are wielded by the White Wizard. The stout dwarf carries a Round Shield and Citadel Plate.

Justice Shall Be Done as their hour of [Doom(/card/10117) is upon them! For Gondor! For Rohan! For all Free Peoples of Middle Earth!

This is a Forth, The Three Hunters! deck that you need to get up and running as fast as possible. Flip that contract soon, because you WILL need to heal. Try to engage the Wraith on Wings so it does not fly over to Mt. Doom. Use Quick Strike and Firefoot to kill 2 enemies. Hopefully Éomer can kill enemies in staging and quest for a lot (he really is a great Three Hunters Hero). You will put the Steward of Gondor on Eomer to amass a large number of resources to pay for 2 or 3 Doom Hangs Still. once you hit round 5 or 6. That SHOULD be enough time for Frodo.
I played this quest on Easy mode to give myself a chance.
Good luck...you will need it.
