A Very VERY Good Tale!
Okay, so here's the plan: really really expensive allies, for free. First you sneak them into play, then you use them for A Very Good Tale.
How many different ways do we really need, to sneak allies into play?!
ALL OF THEM.
My usual Erestor thing is here, using Galdor of the Havens instead because I need to be able to keep A Test of Will from one turn to the next. I'm aiming to take on some Nightmares with these shenanigans. Untested so far.
