Part 1: Level 33-35: Dol Dinen

Our first Khazad Guard Offensive was against the Fortress of Dol Dinen in the North Downs. Ideally the quests could be done in tandem with the other north downs fellowship quests, but we were trying to limit our gameplay to a 1 1/2  to 2 hour session, with perhaps a 1/2 hour overun in extremis. It is also cool to run the whole chain through in one go, so it really feels like taking out the place!

It was great fun this one, storming through an tearing up the place, we wrote a little review post you can read here, with a few accompanying pics.

Here are the quests we attempted (and completed) and below the notes I circulated on the preparitory quests and chains (homework) we all did to get us on the same page.

Fellowship Quests to Complete Together:

  •  ‘Captains of the Black Tide‘ (33: 3 Orc bosses)
  •  ‘Orcs of the Blood Mountain‘ (33: Combatants, Man-Slayers, Battle Masters)
  •  ‘Master of the Black Tide‘ (37: Defeat Zaukil)
  • Warg-Master‘ (33: defeat Raugzok)
  •  ‘Masters of the Black Siege’ (34: 16 trolls)
  •  ‘Siegecraft‘ (34: destroy siege engines)
