The Defense
Heirs of Númenor #72 (x1)

1A-B (9)

The island fortress of Cair Andros, which guards Gondor's northernmost causeways over the river Anduin, is under siege! Battering rams rumble up the eastern causeway and rafts filled with Orcs float across the river toward the lightly defended northern banks.

Setup: Add The Approach, The Citadel, and The Banks to the staging area. Shuffle the encounter deck.

Siege. (Characters quest using Defense instead of Willpower.)

Players must deal damage from undefended attacks to the lowest Threat Battleground location in play. If there are no Battleground locations in play, immediate advance to the next stage.

The assault is relentless, and the defenders grow weary. The tide is slowly but surely turning against you...
