I Am No MAN!
A fellowship made of ONLY female heroes. The rules I set for myself: allies are allowed to be any gender, but all heroes at all times must be female. All female heroes must be included, and the decks must be playable? I think I succeeded at that last one, but of course Éowyn could not be included because Éowyn, and in the end I only have Caldara here with the help of Helm of Secrecy.
For this fellowship, I went heavy into location control. Several ways to get more locations in play, and several ways to clear them faster. The point being, fewer enemies, because we are somewhat shakier there. Mostly, blocking should be handled by allies or Feint, and attacking handled by whoever we can spare from the quest. Na'asiyah is strong as a blocker, Rossiel is strong in the right situation, and Idraen or Arwen Undómiel will probably do in a pinch.
Some useful combos included here:
- Arwen Undómiel + Éowyn + various red allies
- starting threat of 21 + Galadriel + Resourceful and/or Timely Aid
- various green events + The Door is Closed! and/or Keen as Lances and/or Rossiel
- Scouting Party + an entire deck of allies and heroes
- Tale of Tinúviel + Galadriel or Arwen Undómiel + Beravor or Idraen
- Dunedain Pathfinder and/or The Hidden Way + The Evening Star and/or Explorer's Almanac
- Gondorian Spearman + Spear of the Citadel
- Lothíriel + Envoy of Pelargir + various heroes and/or Diligent Noble
- Lothíriel + Knight of Belfalas + White Tower Watchman
- The Hammer-stroke + Hour of Wrath + Éowyn
- Súlien + Sword-thain + Map of Earnil
- Second Breakfast + Map of Earnil and/or Scroll of Isildur and/or Cram ETCETERA
- Arwen Undómiel and/or Mirror of Galadriel + Elven-light and/or Glorfindel and/or Silver Harp
- ... and/or Helm of Secrecy + Caldara + various blue allies + The Houses of Healing
As always, the sideboards are full of things I considered and then didn't include. In this case, they're more chaotic than usual, because this was a pretty slapdash building process.
