You have been captured and imprisoned by the goblins of Mount Gram.
Setup: Each player shuffles his starting hand into his deck. Each player prepares a separate captured deck (see insert). Each player adds 2 resources to his starting hero and sets his threat to that hero's threat cost. Set Southern Gate, Jailor Gornákh and the Angmar Orcs encounter set aside, out of play. Shuffle the encounter deck. Each player draws a new starting hand of 3 cards.
You have endured much during your imprisonment in Mount Gram at the hands of a cruel goblin known as Gornákh. But before you are taken north as prizes for "Lord Daechanar," Amarthiúl comes to your rescue. After he frees you, he slips off to find Iârion, whom you suspect is imprisoned nearby. Armed with only your wits and resolve, you must find the rest of your company.
When Revealed: Each player creates his own staging area and advances to a different stage 2A.
Alone and without your equipment, you steel yourself and being to search for your companions and belongings.
When Revealed: Search the encounter deck for 1 copy of Prison Cell, reveal it, and add it to your staging area. Then capture an additional 2 cards from the top of your captured deck underneath that copy of Prison Cell.
Any time players would place progress on this quest, resuce an equal number of captured cards at random from underneath it instead. (Progress is placed on the active location before triggering this effect.)
Forced: If there are no captured cards underneath Gornákh's Dungeons, join another player at the beginning of the travel phase. If you cannot join another player, all players advance to stage 3A together.
Having rescued as many of your companions as you can find, you begin to make your way towards the dungeon's hidden exit. By now Gornákh is surely aware of your escape, and the orcs that were with Thaurdir are now searching for you, as well.
When Revealed: Add Southern Gate and Jailor Gornákh to the staging area. Shuffle the Angmar Orcs encounter set into the encounter deck. Then, reveal 1 encounter card per player from the top of the encounter deck.
Orcs and Goblins rush to find you before you can make your escape. You must make haste if you wish to make it out of Mount Gram alive!
The player cannot travel to Southern Gate unless there is at least 16 progress on this stage.
The players cannot defeat this stage while Souther Gate is in play. If the players defeat this stage, they have escaped Mount Gram and win the game.
Forced: After 1 or more captured cards are rescued, Jailor Gornákh engages the player with the highest threat and makes an immediate attack.
"Come on now! We've talked enough. Let's go and have a look at the prisoner!"
–Shagrat, The Two Towers
Response: After the players travel to Prison Cell, look at the captured card(s) underneath it and choose 1 to put into play at no cost. Place the other cards back underneath Prison Cell.
...goblins don't care who they catch, as long as it isa done smart and secret, and the prisoners are not able to defend themselves.
When Revealed: Each player must either deal 1 damage to each exhausted character he controls, or remove each exhausted character he controls from the quest.
Shadow: Exhaust a character you control.

Shadow: Discard a random card from your hand and raise your threat by its printed cost.
Forced: When the last time counter is removed from this quest, discard its captured cards and remove this quest from the game. Then, raise each player's threat by 3 for each of his characters that was discarded by this effect.
Several of your captured companions are being sent to the executioner's block. If you make it in time, you might be able to save them before they are slain!
