The first expedition returns at last from the Mines of Moria.
They are a grim sight, for they bear with them the bodies of Barald of Mirkwood and Beranger of the North, both fallen in battle with the Orcs. And also Eohild of Rohan and Norin the Dwarf are too weak to walk, and are all but carried from the Mines, for their wounds were by poisoned Orc blades, and their need now is dire.
Outside, they find the camp swelled by an additional five Dwarfs, only recently arrived. All told, the following are now present...
