The Lord of the Rings: Mount Gundabad
The time has come. All your adventures across Wilderland have pointed you in one direction: toward Mount Gundabad and a confrontation with the terrible Dragon that roosts within. While few would openly rush into battle with such a beast, one thing remains certain: Dagnir poses a threat to the whole of Wilderland, and you must take on whatever risks are necessary to keep it safe.
Completing this task will not be easy, of course. Hordes of Orcs litter the mountain stronghold, standing between you and Dagnir. Even worse, there’s no telling where she has built her lair within the cavernous mountain stronghold. But there can be no turning back now. Gundabad awaits.
After encountering countless terrors in the forgotten city of Framsburg, there is only one thing left to do. Your path leads to Gundabad. Fortunately, your party knows of a secret entrance that should let you slip into the mountain unnoticed. Once inside, however, there’s no telling where the many passages lead or where you’ll find the Dragon you seek.
Your quest into Gundabad, then, begins not as an assault, but as a search. Combining several of the mechanics you’ve encountered throughout the Ered Mithrin cycle, this adventure forces you to carefully choose what goals you will pursue. The twisting halls of Gundabad are dark and vast, and only by exploring these Deep locations can you hope to find your destination buried within the Caves deck. At the same time, once inside the labyrinthine mountain fortress, you’re sure to come across several obstacles that will slow your progress as you seek to defeat Dagnir.
In this Adventure Pack, the obstacles that you face are represented by a randomized deck of eight Stage 2 quest cards that you must progress through until your quest is complete. From locations within Gundabad to tricky situations, each quest card impedes your progress in its own way.
Sneaking into an Orcish stronghold and defeating a massive dragon is a tall task for any group of adventurers. Fortunately, Mount Gundabad brings you help from some of the most unexpected places. Despite their small stature, Hobbits have a special knack for being useful in these situations. You’ll find plenty of ways for them to prove their worth here.
All your efforts have led to this. Can you snuff out this threat to Wilderland? Or will you lose yourself under the mountain?
This is not a stand-alone deck. A copy of The Lord of the Rings: The Core Set is required to play.
