The Long Dark Nightmare
The Long Dark Nightmare #1 (x1)

You are playing Nightmare mode.

Durin's Greaves gains surge.

Lost: The first player must choose and discard an ally in play.

The world is grey, the mountains old,
The forge's fire is ashen cold
No harp is wrung, no hammer falls:
The darkness dwells in Durin's halls
The shadow lies upon his tomb
In Moria, in Khazad-dum
—Gimli, The Fellowship of the Ring
