Well I finished up the Core Set Imperial Edition.

By that I mean I created the final 2 adventures, did the cards, and put them into PDF files. Like before the PDF files end up large. I don't know how to properly compress them.

Anyhow, eventually I'll get the OCTGN files up, but with 110 player cards, and 62 Encounter cards that will take me a good long while to do.

For now you can DL the PDF from the dropbox here:

I already have some ideas for the first expansion pack, to include Unicorn, Crab and Yoritomo's Alliance

Because I enjoy this... I did up the first Adventure Pack for this. 1 Quest and 51 player cards. I have not got them into card form yet, but will soon.

I have returned to this once more. Working on the cards for the first Adventure Pack. Once I have them I'm going to turn them all into OCTGN files for use that way. I'll double check to make sure PDFs are also available for the whole set.

So, I have now had a chance to playtest the first quest with Eilandor and another in our game group. I've made some adjustments, fixed some typos, and done some general clean up. Currently there is a Core Set with 110 player cards, and an expansion set with 45 player cards. 4 Total quests that follow the Scorpion Clan Coup. I am just starting on some rules sheets for various changes but if you know the LOTR game you'll have a decent base.

Any how if anyone here wants to check it out and give me feed back I would welcome it. Currently this link will take you to the Print and Play sheets for the game.

The new rules and keywords are on this thread here until I get a rule sheet up.
