From the back cover:
Now, like Bilbo (and Frodo), you too 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 de=read force or face a fate worse than death. Then challenge the Bandit-king who rules the Great East Road.
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!
