In Murder at the Prancing Pony, several of Middle-earth's greatest heroes are called into action when Barliman Butterbur, the proprietor of The Prancing Pony, discovers a dead body lying slumped and bloody in the corner of his establishment. Scenario-specific rules direct the creation of an "Investigation deck," and players will need to work together to investigate the crime and work through a list of possible suspects and hiding places. The result is a classically engaging murder mystery, given life in Middle-earth in card game form, and the 2015 The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game Fellowship Event is the first chance players around the world will have to gather, band together, and begin their investigations. However, you don't win Murder at the Prancing Pony as soon as you identify the killer and his or her hideout. The scenario's five Suspect enemies are all talented killers, each of whom has mastered a different fighting style. Accordingly, your play experience and the challenges you face will vary considerably with each different possible combination of Suspect and Hideout, making Murder at the Prancing Pony a scenario particularly well-suited for multiple sessions, such as those that you might enjoy during the 2015 Fellowship Event.
