Fantasy Flight Games Releases The Ghost of Framsburg for Lord of the Rings TCG

Oct 1, 2018

Fantasy Flight Games is happy to announce The Ghost of Framsburg, the fourth Adventure Pack in the Ered Mithrin cycle for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game!

To kill a Dragon, you need a weapon that is capable of the deed. After battling Dagnir to a stalemate at Hrogar’s Hill, it is clear that your weapons are not sufficient to slay the beast. So you have set off for the ruins of the once-great city of Framsburg, where it is said Wormsbane, the legendary sword of Fram son of Frumgar, lies entombed with its master. You hope that this enchanted blade will be enough to conquer Dagnir and leave Wilderland at peace.

But Framsburg has been abandoned for millennia and a feeling of dread consumes you as soon as you set foot in cursed city. Perhaps Fram’s sword is not the only thing you’ll find hidden in the depths of the city’s ancient keep…

Far underneath the haunted keep, the darkness grows. Somewhere in the distance the sound of fell creatures emerges from the inescapable gloom. Despite your dread, the sword you seek lies somewhere in these labyrinthine halls. Steel your nerves, muster your courage, and you will find the strength to slay Dragons!

Look for this Adventure Pack in the first quarter of 2019 and pre-order your copy of The Ghost of Framsburg (MEC69)

Three New Nightmare Decks for Lord of the Rings TCG

January 20th, 2017

Just as the daggers of Westernesse may return to action—reappearing after many long years to once again cut against the Dark Lord’s forces—so may the evils of Carn Dûm resurface to threaten all who live in the North…

It is no longer safe to travel the Bree-lands. Three new Nightmare Decks are now available for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, all ready to darken your table with the Orcs, Undead, and Sorcery massing in Carn Dûm!

Originally part of the Angmar Awakened cycle, the scenarios that these Nightmare Decks modify were already brimming with foul necromancy and the stench of the undead. So what can you expect when you revisit their challenges in Nightmare Mode? For an answer to that question, we turn to developer Matthew Newman.

A Storm on Cobas Haven

May 18th, 2016

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of A Storm on Cobas Haven, the fifth Adventure Pack in the Dream-chaser cycle for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game!

In the penultimate chapter of the Dream-chaser cycle, Middle-earth’s heroes must lend their strength to the defense of Dol Amroth and its fleet. It’s a nautical battle like no other as your heroes have to demonstrate their newfound mastery of the Sailing test as well as their prowess in ship-to-ship combat.

Fortunately, as you fight your way through the Corsair fleet, you’ll gain the aid of Dol Amroth, as well as that of a talented new Tactics hero. Additionally, you’ll find thirty new player cards (three copies each of ten different cards), many of which reinforce the Dream-chaser cycle’s focus on powerful allies and secondary effects that can be paid for by the group as a whole.

In the dark land of Mordor, the Enemy has grown stronger, and his agents have stolen secretly into the very heart of Gondor. Though many may think the streets of Minas Tirith are free from evil, the war against the Enemy is not won, nor are any of its battles truly ended. Traitors once again skulk about the darkest alleys of Minas Tirith and steal through the forests of Gondor. Scattered bands of Orcs rampage through the countryside, putting villages to the torch and slaying all they encouner. Your work is not ended until the Enemy himself is defeated.

Now, the time has come to take up your arms once more, and march to war against the growing Shadow. As Lord Boromir leads Gondor’s troops to retake the fallen city of Osgiliath, it’s up to your heroes to help strike a blow against the Enemy. But do you, or Boromir, or anyone really comprehend the challenges and dangers that lie before you? Three new Nightmare Decks are now available for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game. With them, you can play once more through the dramatic Against the Shadow cycle, but this time, in Nightmare Mode, the challenges are greater, the enemies are deadlier, and the treacheries run deeper than ever before…

Can you stand fast against the growing Shadow? Pick up your copies of the Against the Shadow Nightmare Decks today!
