Chased by Easterlings
A Shadow in the East#75 (x1)
1A-B (5)
Setup: Set Warriors of the East aside, out of play. Add Easterling Pursuit and 1 copy of River Running to the staging area. Each player adds 1 different Easterling enemy to the staging area. Shuffle the encounter deck.

You are traveling south along the River Running on your way to Dorwinion when you are attacked by Easterling raiders in the night. The raiders set fire to your boat, trapping you on the east side of the river, and you are forced to flee south on foot.
This stage gets +5 quest points per player.

Add +1 to the total threat in the staging area for each resource token on Easterling Pursuit.

Your only hope is to reach the safety of Dorwinion by the Crossing of Araw before your Easterling pursuers overtake you.
