"...ageing no quicker than the hills, the fathers of the fathers
of the trees, remembering times when they were lords. Their countless
years had filled them with pride and rooted wisdom and with malice.
But none was more dangerous than the Great Willow: his heart was
rotten but his strength was green; and he was cunning, and a master
of the winds, and his song ran through the woods on both sides
of the river. His gray thirsty spirit drew power out of the earth
and spread like fine root-threads in the ground, and invisible
twig-fingers in the air, till it had under its dominion nearly
all the trees of the Forest from the Hedge to the Downs."
Old Man Willow is a site dedicated to the Middle-earth Collectible Card
Game (MECCG or METW) and especially to new cards created by the ever strong
player base of the game.
Some of the listed cards have an option to view a JPG illustration,
which are quite large (over 300 KB), so please be patient while the image
loads. Please submit any card ideas you have
- they will be added to the list and your credits below.
The current list of contributing authors includes: Ari-Pekka Alestalo,
Miika Karmitsa and Christoph Schürmann.
Please E-mail me any comments or suggestions you have. All feedback is

Created a quick template
refence for font sizes and -types used in the illustrated cards. Now
it's even easier to create your own cards. Also, the site should look
better than before with Netscape now.
