Captured by Spiders
The Woodland Realm#1 (x1)
1A-B (10)
Setup: Add Spider Den to the staging area. The opposing team searches the encounter deck for one different 0 cost enemy or 0 cost location per player and adds it to the staging area. Shuffle the encounter deck.

You are traveling through Mirkwood forest in search of The Elvenking's hidden halls, when you hear a desperate cry for help from a dark path of woods.
Forced: When Spider Den is explored, flip it over and put Mendor into play under the first player's control, ready.

This stage cannot be defeated unless the first player controls Mendor.

The cries are those of an Elf who has been captured within a spider den. You must rescue him!
