Nightmare Decks for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game allow you to revisit your favorite scenarios cast in the shadows of the game's challenging Nightmare Mode. Featuring deadlier enemies, darker locations, and more terrifying surprises, each Nightmare Deck introduces new, alternate encounter cards and instructions for using them to reshape a scenario's encounter deck. The result? A nightmarish journey through territory you thought you knew, but with twists and turns that will have you on the edge of your seat!
In The Battle of Carn Dum, you command some of Middle-earth's greatest heroes as they join with the Rangers of the North and the Elves of Rivendell to lead an assault against the dark fortress of Carn Dum. There's everything you'd expect from a heated battle-enemies, a terrible Captain, and the chaos of war. With The Battle of Carn Dum Nightmare Deck, these elements are all given an extra bit of weight, especially the chaos of war as it's represented by the game's shadow effects. You'll find deadlier enemies; cards that increase the terrible might of the Undead Captain, Thaurdir; and other cards that increase the potency of the scenario's mechanics that power your foes with piles of shadow cards.
Nightmare Decks are available via FFG's In-House Manufacturing and may differ subtly in appearance and texture from Core Set cards. Players are thus encouraged to utilize opaque or art sleeves while playing in Nightmare Mode.
This is not a stand-alone product. One copy each of The Lord of the Rings: The Core Set, The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game - The Lost Realm expansion, and The Battle of Carn Dum Adventure Pack are required to play.
