Ambush the Men of Harad
The Land of Shadow#68 (x1)
1A-B (20)
Setup: Add The Black Gate and The Cross-roads to the staging area. Shuffle the Harad encounter set and place it facedown under The Cross-roads. Each player, except for the first player, searches the encounter deck for a different non-unique location and adds it to the staging area. Shuffle the encounter deck.

"These cursed Southrons come now marching up the ancient roads to swell the hosts of the Dark Tower. Yea, up the very roads that craft of Gondor made." —Mablung, The Two Towers

Forced: At the beginning of the quest phase, reveal the top facedown card from under The Cross-roads and add it to the staging area.

The players cannot defeat this stage while The Cross-roads is in play. When The Cross-roads is explored, the players win the game.

"The road may pass, but they shall not!"
