Fantasy Flight Games has detailed what you get as part of The Dark Of Mirkwood campaign that will be available next year for The Lord Of The Rings: The Card Game. Will you get revenge against the Goblins of the forest?

The Dark Of Mirkwood was initially available as part of the Limited Edition version of The Lord Of The Rings: The Card Game. It will now be available as a two-part scenario pack that everyone can pick up and use to extend their adventures from the Mirkwood Paths campaign in the new (and existing) Core Set.

The quest breaks down into two parts, The Oath and The Caves of Nibin-dûm. In The Oath, you find the bodies of fallen woodsmen and track the Goblin that slew them. After finding their hideout you'll take part in The Caves of Nibin-dûm where you'll delve into a forgotten Dwarven mine in hopes of rescuing the surviving captives.

The new set also comes with Boon and Burden cards which allow you to tell a linked story between your games. Perhaps you'll pick up No Time To Waste (shown above) on your journey or The Power Of Spirit which allows you to add more progress to locations.

You might also be stalked by Goblins who summon more and more of their kin to hunt you in the dark eaves of Mirkwood. This seems like another decent challenge and a set that feels like a good next step for those who pick up the updated Core Set next year.

All of the new campaign-related cards will be made available to print off at home when this set releases. So, if you already own the Core Set or this quest from its initial release then you can still snap up those Boons and Burdens.

Are you going to be snapping this up next year?
