However, your heroes have no time to lose because the Dark Lord’s servants have also learned of the hidden location within Hollin. As they seek to outrace the forces of evil, the heroes must also beware of those creatures that make their home in The Nîn-in-Eilph…
Through the Marsh
Among its sixty new cards, which also include a new hero and three copies of each new player card, The Nîn-in-Eilph introduces a deadly new scenario that challenges players to guide their heroes through the swamps of the Nîn-in-Eilph. Full of deadly creatures, the swamps haven’t been traveled for an age, and no paths exist to lead the heroes through the shifting bogs.
The new scenario of The Nîn-in-Eilph is one of exploration and survival, and it challenges players to navigate their way through a series of random quest stages. Accordingly, it offers tremendous replayability, and the scenario’s strange collection of Creatures, along with its use of the new Time X keyword, ensure that they’ll enjoy a rewarding experience and a mounting tension each time they battle their way through the Nîn-in-Eilph and its fetid marshlands.
Find Your Bearings
With such a treacherous and important journey ahead of them, even Middle-earth’s greatest heroes may desire extra guidance. Fortunately, The Nîn-in-Eilph introduces a new Ranger hero as well as twenty-seven new player cards (three copies each of nine different cards) that focus on knowledgeable guidance and wise leadership.
Several of the Adventure Pack’s new player cards also promote interesting multi-player interactions, including Follow Me! (The Nîn-in-Eilph, 85), which allows a player to take control of the first player token, becoming the new first player. This is no small matter; enemies engage the first player first, numerous encounter cards target the first player, and in many scenarios the ability to become the first player may prove the difference between success and disaster.
Meanwhile, Wingfoot (The Nîn-in-Eilph, 92) adds to the game’s collection of powerful Aragorn-themed attachments, but it can work wonders on any Ranger. Wingfoot combines well with Henamarth Riversong (Core Set, 60) and Needful to Know (The Redhorn Gate, 9), but it also grows stronger for each player at the table in a multi-player game, as each player increases the number of encounter cards the playing player draws and increases their odds of blindly revealing the correct type.
