Here and there through openings Frodo could catch sudden glimpses of rolling mounds, and far beyond them hills in the sunset, and away on the edge of sight a dark line, where marches the southernmost ranks of the Misty Mountains.
–The Fellowship of the Ring
Forced: While Gladden Fields is the active location, each player must raise his threat by an additional point during the refresh phase.
"On a time they took a boat and went down to the Gladden Fields, where there were great beds of iris and flowering reeds."
–Gandalf, The Fellowship of the Ring
Setup: Each player reveals 1 card from the top of the encounter deck, and adds it to the staging area.
Emerging from Mirkwood Forest with an urgent message from Lady Galadriel, you must make your way south along the Anduin River in order to reach the forst of Lórien. As you leave the forest behind, you notice that you are being pursued, and thus quicken your pace...
When Revealed: Search the encounter deck for 1 Hill Troll is one is not already in play, and place it in the staging area. Shuffle the encounter deck.
Players cannot defeat this stage while any Hill Troll cards are in play.
As you approach the location of a small raft stashed on the riverbank, a fearsome Hill Troll emerges from behind a grouping of rocks, and attacks!
Reveal 1 additional card from the encounter deck each quest phase. Do not make engagement checks during the encounter phase. (Each player may still optionally engage 1 enemy each encounter phase.)
After defeating the Troll, you are able to board the raft and embark upon a river voyage. As you depart, your enemies pursue, harassing the small vessel as you attempt to navigate the river...
As your enemies harass the raft, it is difficult to maintain balance and effectively fight them off.
When Revealed: Reveal 2 encounter cards per player, and add them to the staging area.
Skip the staging step of the quest phase for the remainder of the game.
Once there are no enemies in play, the players have won the game.
The ongoing harassment from your enemies has forced your raft to the shore, and you must now confront their ambush head on. If you survive this attack, your path to the Golden Wood should be open before you...
You are playing Campaign Mode.
Setup: Put Mendor into play. Set each copy of Valor and Scarred aside, out of play.
Response: After a Hill Troll is defeated, each player attaches 1 set-side copy of Valor to a hero they control, if able.
Forced: After a character is destroyed by a Hill Troll, each player attaches 1 set-aside copy of Scarred to a hero they control. (Limit once per game.)
If Mendor leaves play, the players lose the game.
Resolution: Add each copy of Valor and Scarred in play to the Campaign Pool. Record the names of the heroes with Valor and/or Scarred attached in the notes section of the Campaign Log and attach them to those heroes when setting up each subsequent scenario in this campaign.
The hero with the most damage will be taken prisoner at the beginning of Escape from Dol Guldur (in case of a tie, randomly select among the heroes with the most damage.) Record the name of the “prisoner” in the notes section of the Campaign Log.
“Our pursuers were too persistent and their ambush too well planned to be mere coincidence,” says Mendor after finally reaching the shores of Lórien. “I fear a greater evil directs them from the shadows.”
