First sequel to The Lord of the Rings Adventure Game . . . In those days of our tale there were still some people who had both Elves and heroes of the North for ancestors, and Elrond the master of the house was their chief. He was as noble and as fair in face as an Elf-lord, as strong as a warrior, as wise as a wizard, as venerable as a king of Dwarves, and as kind as summer. He comes into many tales, but his part in the story of Bilbo's great adventures is only a small one, though important, as you will see, if we ever get to the end of it. His house was perfect, whether you liked food, or sleep, or work, or story-telling, or singing, or just sitting and thinking best, or a pleasant mixture of them all. Evil things did not come into that valley. - J.R.R. Tolkien. The Hobbit page 51 Now, like Bilbo (and Frodo), you can have great adventures - pausing in Rivendell before daring the perils that lurk in Middle-earth's forgotten nooks and crannies. Challenge Awaits You! " Darker Than The Darkness" is the first sequel to the Lord of the Rings Adventure Game. On the downs southeast of Bree, you must defeat a dread foe or face a fate worse than death. Then challenge the Bandit-king who rules the Great East Road. It's Fun! All Lord of the Rings Adventure Game sequels use the same fun and user-friendly storytelling format you mastered in your first adventure "Dawn Comes Early". You'll start playing as soon as you turn the title page! (Remember, you do need the boxed game to play!) The Excitement Goes On! Look for the next sequel adventure when you're ready for more fun. "Over the Misty Mountains Cold" starts where "Darker than the Darkness" ends, revealing a new menace that threatens all the Free Peoples of Middle-earth. When you're ready for more epic adventuring in J.R.R. Tolkien's world, check your game- or bookstore for the best-selling Middle-earth Role Playing. It's the perfect next step up!
