A new deluxe expansion is on the way for those delving into The Lord Of The Rings: The Living Card Game for even more of a challenge. A Shadow In The East has your heroes venturing just beyond the borders of Mordor from Fantasy Flight Games.

The new expansion has you travelling down The River Running where you're looking to investigate a string of disappearances whilst also dealing with deadly raiders. You end up running for your life as dark and dangerous foes hound your steps.

Beyond that, you'll be going to the troubled city of Dorwinion where you have to try and find out what is happening surrounding these continuing abductions whilst also dealing with unwanted attention, attracted to your actions. Finally, this comes to a head in The Temple Of Doom (hah) where you head to a tainted temple and help free captives from the clutches of their evil tormentors.

As well as these interesting new options for characters as well as a fascinating new quest going deeper into Middle-earth we also have a new twist on The One Ring. You can now take control of The One Ring and attach it to certain heroes. Whilst it offers up fascinating new options for your characters it also comes with a downside that works alongside the new Master cards.

There's also a new Enemy/Hero version of Gollum/Smeagol that you can throw into the mix.

Now, this is very cool! I love the idea that you can try and take a different approach to Smeagol, drawing on the way that his character developed throughout The Two Towers and The Return Of The Ring.

This seems like a great new toolset for those that want to expand on the world of Middle-earth on the tabletop.

Will you be snapping this up?
