Your last chance stands before you at the heart of the Nexus—do you have the courage to take the final steps?
You have come so far and learned so much. This campaign has changed your investigators and you have watched them grow as individuals and a team, but you have also lost more than you ever feared. If you could go back, if you could undo all that has happened since you first signed on for that expedition, would you?

Terrinoth is in peril and now the realm looks to you for a savior in Heroes of Terrinoth from Fantasy Flight Games!
The restless dead rise in the Mistlands, the Bloodguard sow discord in the Free Cities, and even the Land of Steel is no longer safe as tales of marauding goblins travel along the roads. You must step into the shoes of a hero and journey into the darkest dungeons and caverns, seeking out the dangers that threaten Terrinoth and casting them down. And if you happen to get rich along the way… well, what’s the harm in that?
In this cooperative card game of questing and adventure, one to four players choose from an array of twelve distinct heroes, spread across four possible archetypes: healer, warrior, mage, and scout. Each hero has a special ability reflecting the skills and talents they’ve learned along the way, and as you gain more experience through your quests, you’ll have the chance to grow from a fledgling student to a true master of your art and specialize in different classes.

You may have escaped your battle with the Cold-drake with your lives, but scarcely had the beast been slain than word of an even greater threat reached your ears. A terrible Dragon roosts in the Orcish stronghold of Gundabad and your only way in is a fiendish Goblin you have taken prisoner. Now, you have no choice but to place your trust in him and set off on an uncertain path through Wilderland.
Roam Across Rhovanion, the second Adventure Pack in the Ered Mithrin cycle for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, is now available from Fantasy Flight Games!
Your battle with the Cold-drake in The Withered Heath has earned your company of heroes an unexpected reward: the Goblin Urdug is now your prisoner, and he claims to know of a hidden entrance into Gundabad that would make entering the fortress all the easier. Despite being your captive, however, Urdug will not part with this precious information easily. Only after you’ve helped him recover three things he lost in the craggy ravines and grey moorland of Wilderland will he lead you to Gundabad.
With Rhovanion spread out before you, the fate of your quest lies in the hands of a treacherous Goblin. The question might not be if he will betray you, but when. Still, you have no choice but to follow where he leads. Stay on your guard and head off into the wild!
