The Forgotten Temple
A Shadow in the East#80 (x1)
1A-B (-)
Setup: Shuffle each of the stage 2 quest cards together and place them facedown under this stage. Create The Power of Mordor deck (see insert) and set it next to the quest deck. Add Thane Ulchor and Tribute to Mordor to the staging area. Shuffle the encounter deck.

Your search for the missing Dorwinions has led you up the mountains of Rhûn. There you discover the remains of an ancient temple built to honor Sauron during the dark years of Middle-earth.
Skip the quest phase.

Forced: At the end of the planning phase, place 1 resource token here. Then, if there are 2 resource tokens here, add this stage to the victory display and advance to the topmost stage 2A.

The journey to reach this place has been difficult and you take a moment to prepare yourself before entering the dark temple.
