She was called Undómiel, for she was the Evenstar of her people. Long she had been in the land of her mother’s kin, in Lórien beyond the mountains, and was but lately returned to Rivendell to her father’s house. But her brothers, Elladan and Elrohir, were out upon errantry: for they rode often far afield with the Rangers of the North, forgetting never their mother’s torment in the dens of the orcs.
–J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

This exciting second Adventure Pack in the Dwarrowdelf cycle is now available at your local retailer and on our webstore.

Road to Rivendell introduces a new hero and three copies of each player card, as well as a thrilling new scenario to challenge the heroes of Middle-earth who seek to escort Arwen Undómiel safely to Rivendell. The storms that raged along The Redhorn Gate may have abated, but new dangers await your fellowship. Hungry predators and sneaky goblins lie in wait, ready to launch wave after wave of ambushes!
In the dens of the orcs
“Most of the Orcs of the Misty Mountains were scattered or destroyed in the Battle of Five Armies.”
–Gandalf, The Fellowship of the Ring
Road to Rivendell threatens your heroes with a startling revelation. The Orcs that were scattered during the Battle of Five Armies have begun to mass once more!
These Orcs are eager for battle. Gathering in unknown numbers and strength, they are ready to swoop down upon your fellowship, and your heroes must remain ever wary if they hope to get Arwen safely to Rivendell.
Fortunately for your fellowship, players meet a new hero along the Road to Rivendell, one whose history steels him with a fierce resolve to face the orcs. With The Redhorn Gate, players gained the option to include Elrohir (The Redhorn Gate, 1) in their fellowships, and now his brother, Elladan (Road to Rivendell, 28) meets the fellowship on their approach to the Last Homely House.
Separately, these brothers are solid heroes, able to make solid contributions to questing, attack, and defense. But together, they truly come into their own, two powerful Noldor Elves, the sons of Elrond, filled with a passion to hunt and eliminate the Orcs who once captured and tortured their mother. United, Elrohir can stand against a horde of Orcs, and once his brother has turned aside their swords and spears, Elladan can cut them down.
Will the Elven brothers’ thirst for vengeance strengthen them on the Road to Rivendell? Or will it cause them to push too far, too fast, and succumb to the dangers of the road?
Travel down the perilous slopes of the Misty Mountains today! Road to Rivendell is now on sale at your local retailer and on our webstore.
