Khazad-Dum Campaign, Into the Pit


Here's my first attempt at publishing decks, so please give me your thoughts!

This is the first installment of my wife and I playing through the Khazad-Dum expansion with only the cards that were available at that time. For Khazad-Dum itself, we will play with the same decks for all three missions. For the Dwarrodelf Cycle missions (should we get there), we may change up the decks for each mission. In general, we will prioritize theme over function and will play maps multiple times if necessary before continuing.

We managed to win "Into the Pit" on the first try by the skin of our teeth. Dain died about half way through with Narvi's Belt and Steward of Gondor on him, so that was a huge blow. (There's a nasty shadow card that has you discard the defending character, and he was defending). The Player 2 deck ended with 48 threat, there were three enemies in the staging area, and we had exactly the number of progress tokens we needed to finish the mission. Overall the decks were a success, but I think I will add in Gondorian spearman to the Player 2 deck to pair w/ Thalin.

Please leave comments and suggestions for our future campaigns!

Next up: the seventh level.

Just for the Seventh Level, Thalin and Gondorian Spearman make short work of the two health goblins, so consider swapping him in (and back out for quest three).

To another point you mention, I started to really like attaching A Burning Brand to Dáin Ironfoot via Narvi's Belt since the resource match only really has to apply when you add the attachment.

I beat Seventh Level on the first try with these decks. GREAT job! I'm going to see how this plays on Moria and the Dwarrowdelf Cycle.

Thanks pd187540! I'm looking forward to continuing this campaign when finals are over. And great idea Quetzal - I'll try that on my next Fellowship I think. FIts with these rules too because its in the Shadow of Mirkwood cycle...
