So the rulebook says that the OL draws only three Rumor cards at the start of the campaign. I don't know how many campaigns you play but I think this restricts the opportunities to play the new content.
Would it be that big of a difference for game balance if the OL starts with all the rumor cards?
Imagine you play an entire campaign, then you setup the next one and the OL draws the same three cards which is not impossible since there are only 6 cards total. This will leave you with 20 hours of gameplay again before you might get to see the new cards in action.
What do you think?
I think I d house rule it this way...
Three of the rumour cards are optional quests, and the other three are things the OL can use to impede the heroes. If you allow the OL to have all 6 rumour cards every campaign, then he will always have all of these cards to make the heroes' lives harder.
So you are worried that the OL might *possibly* end up with the same cards from one campaign to another? How is allowing him access to every single card in every campaign going to increase the variety?
