"I too once passed the Dimrill Gate," said Aragorn quietly; "but though I also came out again, the memory is very evil."
-J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
Khazad-dum Nightmare Decks is a single set of three twenty-card Nightmare Decks, one for each of the three scenarios from Khazad-dum, the first deluxe expansion for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game.
It was for Khazad-dum that Middle-earth's heroes first departed the Shadows of Mirkwood to embark upon a perilous journey through the dark and twisting mines of Moria. Their search for the missing Dwarf, Balin, led them far from the familiar locations and foes of the Core Set into a lightless realm populated by hordes of Orcs, Goblins, and Cave Trolls, along with another presence, darker and more sinister than anything they had previously encountered...
Now, the gut-wrenching terrors of Khazad-dum are made fresh once again. These Nightmare Decks introduce deadly new encounter cards and scenario-specific rules that greatly increase the challenges of the expansion's three scenarios: Into the Pit, The Seventh Level, and Flight from Moria. Simultaneously, they add subtle plot twists and thematic alterations. The darkness is darker, your old strategies may be countered, and if you don't adapt to the new challenges you face, you may quickly meet your doom!
This is not a stand-alone deck. The Lord of the Rings: The Core Set and Khazad-dum deluxe expansion are required to play.
