The Lord of the Rings: Attack on Dol Guldur
Attack on Dol Guldur originally premiered at Gen Con 50 and was later featured as a favorite at the 2017 Fellowship Event. This scenario is designed to embrace Fellowships of every size, whether you wish to campaign with a small band of elite fighters or strike with the force of a great host. This scenario pack features two forms of gameplay with both Standard Game Mode and Epic Multiplayer Mode. Standard Game Mode supports one to four players and can be played with a single copy of Attack on Dol Guldur. Otherwise, with three copies of the scenario pack, you can support an incredible three to twelve player game and launch an assault on the fortress from multiple fronts.
As separate parts of a single siege, each team must face their challenges alone, as each stage acts as its own game. Card abilities on one stage cannot affect the battle unfolding at another stage, but those on separate stages may use the same unique cards if they so choose. Epic Multiplayer Mode divides your heroes into three teams playing different stages simultaneously, each facing their own set of challenges with a separate encounter deck as they work together to defeat the evil that awakens in the halls of the Necromancer once more.
You will need every ally you can gather if you wish to overcome the treachery of the dark fortress with its Power Sevenfold (Attack on Dol Guldur, 27). Even with its dread master absent, executing an attack on the Necromancer’s fortress is certain to fill the hearts of your outnumbered comrades with sense of dread, equipping this encounter card with the Doomed 1 keyword. When revealed, each player must choose to either search for a Dol Guldur location and add it to the staging area, or find an Orc enemy and immediately engage it in battle.
If, in the heat of battle, the last player at any stage is defeated, the siege fails and the entire group loses the game. If, however, at the end of the round Dol Guldur’s city strength is zero and there are no Lieutenants left to defend it, the fortress is captured and your heroes are victorious. While you may fight, defend, and quest separated from your allies, you are united by honor, by fellowship, and by the desire to bring Sauron’s reign to an end.
Throw down the walls of Dol Guldur. Lay bare the pits, free the condemned souls within the dungeons, and break Sauron’s hold on Middle-earth!
This is not a stand-alone deck. A copy of The Lord of the Rings: The Core Set is required to play.
