Decks in the Dwarrowdelf, Part Two
This fellowship comes from the official FFG website here:
A small dark figure that none had observed sprang out of the shadows and gave a hoarse shout: Baruk Khazâd! Khazâd ai-mênu! An axe swung and swept back. Two Orcs fell headless. The rest fled. –J.R.R. Tolkien, The Two Towers
As we draw nearer to the release of Shadow and Flame and the climactic finale of the Dwarrowdelf cycle of Adventure Packs for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game , we move forward with another deck list inspired by the cycle.
Last week , we looked at a deck list centered around a trio of sages who shared a Love of Tales ( The Long Dark , 85). Now, we change gears and present not one, but two, deck lists all about Dwarves. What better race of heroes could there be to delve the abandoned mines of Moria? The Dwarrowdelf cycle has given these short and stalwart characters plenty of incentive to expedition deep beneath the Misty Mountains.
Today, we see them sent forth into the dark tunnels under the direction of Caleb Grace, lead developer of the upcoming Saga Expansion, The Hobbit: Over Hill and Under Hill .
A Brief Introduction by Caleb Grace
These decks favor theme over efficiency. When I was playing the scenarios from the Khazad-Dûm and Dwarrowdelf expansions, I wanted to create a company of Dwarves to explore the Mines of Moria. Aside from Gandalf, all the characters in these decks have the Dwarf trait.
The focus on the Dwarf trait creates a lot of synergy between the two decks. On their own, neither deck is very strong, but when they’re paired together in cooperative play, they complement each other nicely.
