Elanor of Gondor

Elanor was a hero character created by Fantasy Flight Games for the Lord of the Rings Living Card Game (LCG).


Elanor lived during the 60 years between when the Dwarves reclaim the Lonely Mountain (Erebor) and when Bilbo has to let go of the One Ring in Fellowship of the Ring. Her traits state that she was a noblewoman of Gondor, which is entirely a possibility at the time, since she could very well have been one of the people seen in the crowd before Boromir in his famous speech atop the battlements, just after Osgiliath was reclaimed by Gondor's forces.

Since Elanor was a FF Games made character it is unknown when she would have died, but (judging from her appearance) she could not have been more than 30 in the setting and time of the game. This marks her as 90 years old, at most, when the War of the Ring started.

Elanor shows no obvious weapons, but she would likely have some small item for self defense close at hand.

Card usage

In the actual card game, Elanor would largely be associated with defending, though her score was not that high (at only a 2). Her willpower and attack stats are both at 1, so she would make a slight difference in committing to quests or attacking, but should not be used as the main character to do either. Her low health of 3 warns players against forcing her to defend against opponents with high strength, as it will not take long to finish her off in this case. Her Response effect is extremely helpful against enemies like "Misty Mountain Orcs", who deal 2 automatic damage to 1 character as a "When Revealed" effect. The only downside is that using Elanor's effect leaves you without a potential defender for the round.
