As the heroes continue through the Anduin Valley, they hear the piercing cry of an eagle over the distant ridge. They hurry to investigate, only to find a great eagle, suffering from wounds that appear to have come from goblin weapons. They only have short time to get the eagle assistance before it perishes.
Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce A Journey To Rhosgobel, the third Adventure Pack in the Shadows of Mirkwood Cycle for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game! After facing a fearsome group of trolls, the heroes have pressed further into the Anduin Valley to continue their search for Gollum. However, when they stumble across a dying eagle wounded in a fight with goblins, they are compelled to offer their assistance.
A Mission of Mending
During their search for Gollum, the heroes must take a detour in order to save a valuable ally. Since the Eagles play such an important role in the Shadows of Mirkwood Adventure Packs, players will want to retain the trust of their winged allies by saving one of their kin. In order to do so, they must bring the bird to Rhosgobel and seek out the wizard Radagast, who knows many secrets of the wild.
A Journey to Rhosgobel contains 60 fixed cards from the Shadows of Mirkwood cycle. In this exciting expansion, even more Eagles join the Tactics sphere, while Leadership players are given a Dúnedain Quest that will inspire confidence in their cause. The heroes’ trek through Mirkwood leads them to Haldir of Lórien, whose unnatural agility will aid the party in their task. However, the sky grows dark with foul minions of the Shadow, and every step toward Rhosgobel causes the heroes’ avian ally more pain. There is no time to lose!
Look for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game in stores in just two weeks, then plan on making your journey to Rhosgobel this summer!
The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game is a cooperative card game that puts 1-2 players (or up to four with an additional Core Set) in control of the most powerful characters and artifacts of Middle-earth.

Cool I am very interested in the Eagles we can have in our parties. Radagast will be an asset for them. And glad to see the release date was slipped in there too. Glad its official now.
