CDavis7M gave a nice scenario idea in the post https://councilofelrond.org/forum/viewt ... 783#p30657

Difficult
DR: none.
WR: Bilbo played 3 times Marvels Told.
A warrior bears Enruned Shield, Bow of Dragon-horn, Arrows Shorn of Ebony, Habergeon of Silver, Scabbard of Chalcedony, Valiant Sword, Adamant Helmet, Emerald of the Mariner

I like that very much, thematically.
Still I believe it's really hard to achieve, even if you place all items under the warrior at your last turn.

I would state that the warrior should be either Man or Elf, as Earendil was a Half-Elf.

He seems to be an Half-elf :

Argh, totally, correct! I have corrected my statement above.
As far as I remember, he was allowed to stay at the Undying Lands only because he did not sail to Valor for his own sake but to save all Men and Elves.

This is fun! One idea would be to have Galadriel for her Three Golden Hairs. She and/or another sage could pick up When You Know More, and use Far-Sight, while a company of Warriors forms a Fellowship to pick up all the items. Then use Nenya and Magical Harp to save "Eärendil" the last turn or two, and save Harp for the Council.

What about "Earendil's heirs".

Difficult
DR: none.
WR: Bilbo played 3 times Marvels Told.
Elrond, Elladan and Elrohir bear the following items : Enruned Shield, Bow of Dragon-horn, Arrows Shorn of Ebony, Habergeon of Silver, Scabbard of Chalcedony, Valiant Sword, Adamant Helmet, Emerald of the Mariner

Bit far-fetched to nominate Bilbo as heir of Eärendil, he only hitch-hiked on a raft down the forest river, and rowed up Esgaroth.
After Frodo's parents drowned in the Baranduin, he probably never dipped his toes in water again ;-)
(until his final voyage, ok that part is rather Earendil-like).

Is this scenario really that hard? Sure there's 5 hoard items (3 unique), and 1 big cc, but doesn't seem all that complicated.

Bilbo is just telling the tales. Elrond and his sons (the actual heirs!) are the ones bearing the items.

I like this way.
And I think it's still difficult scenario (altough not difficult to play), with 4 unique top characters, lots of item so corruption.
