Hey, everyone.

First off, I would just like to thank everybody on BGG for their amazing support. I started off making custom scenarios for Lord of the Rings: the Card Game after I downloaded two custom scenarios from Ninjadorg which, for me, expanded the game's lifespan twofold. I remember thinking to myself how perfect Lord of the Rings was for making custom scenarios - since each scenario was self-contained, it wouldn't ruin the game's balance and would only serve to make the game more re-playable and more interesting.

I tested the waters with the Ruins of Nan Wathren and found that while I enjoyed making custom quest cards, there was much more that could be done. Thanks to GeckoTH's photoshop templates, I made my first real scenario, The Bandits of Chetwood North, and followed this up with the Culling at the Barrow-Downs, my most popular scenario. I was absolutely astonished at the support I got and it humbles me to this day. You guys are truly awesome and I wanted to thank you again before I move on.

I have good news and bad news. The bad news is, I won't be able to continue working on custom scenarios for Lord of the Rings. This is especially unfortunate because my third scenario in the Battle of Dale is basically done. However, that leads me to the good news...

I've just accepted a position with Fantasy Flight Games as an Associate LCG Designer!

So, it turns out I will be making more Lord of the Rings scenarios (and player cards) for the foreseeable future. I can't tell you what exactly I would be working on (I signed an NDA agreement during my interview), but I can tell you that I will be working full-time on Lord of the Rings, and that the future for the game is very, very exciting.

I hope you continue to support not only the official products for LotR, but also the custom scenarios on BGG, as well. Don't let this movement die out! Keep up the good work and I will work to get these great scenarios recognized.

Ninjadorg, GeckoTH, jpraibis, shnar, TragicTheBlathering, camipco, letsdance, PasiMax, skyzero, cordeirooo, Kvaren, booored, happycatmachine, Ikim, MalexBerg, Flamehearted, citilogic, Glaurung2, sciurusaurus, BuddhaBob74, MountainRoot, Fazumar, pelein, Troymk1, remote009, Mightyjim, jrd23, and everybody else who has given me support with what seemed like just a fun hobby - thank you so much.

I won't start with FFG for a while, but I can't wait to make some brand new scenarios and player cards for everybody to play with.

Congratulations!

I'm really glad you shared this with all of us! It's good to know that someone so passionate about the game (an knowledgeable about Tolkien) will be part of the game design and it makes me very confident in the game's future.

Best of luck in your new job!

Congratulations! You've done very well. I can say that your custom scenarios made me start to create my own ones.

That makes your custom scenarios semi-official now

Wicked. And props to FFG for using the community as a resource and not, say, suing everyone in it (looking at you Games Workshop).

Great news! FFG just got a big talent in you. Hopefully you'll be able to finish the Battle of the Dale there; many of us must have it!

Wow! All of you, thank you so much. You guys seriously rock. And if any of you come to any of FFG's events or Gen Con I hope to see you there in the future!

Like I said before, I can't tell you exactly what I'll be working on (partly due to the NDA I signed and partly due to not knowing exactly what plans FFG has up their sleeve) but I can tell you that I plan on using the community as a resource to see what kinds of things you guys hope to see in the future. Thanks again for everything, and most importantly, never stop making custom scenarios! I know I'll never stop printing them out and playing them.

Great news! Congratulations.

I have a related question for the community that might be best asked here - I am overwhelmed by all of the options for community created quests. Where can I go to find out what the options are, what the best quests are, and what official card sets you need to play them (I currently only have the Core and all the Mirkwood sets, for example)?

You could check out The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game - Adventure Database.
It's a list of all the official quests + the ones created by BGG users.
