The dwarf king Murin is coming to the aid of his brethen in the Lonely Mountain; unsettled by the Mirkwood, he decides to skirt its northern edge. It is then that his party is attacked by a band of orcs from the Ered Mithrin, the stalwart dwarves climb to a hill and prepare to sell their lives dearly, but then a company of wood elves comes to the rescue from the edge of the wood.
The light will win if Murin exits by the opposite board
The darkness only has to kill the king
Battle starts with the orcs sprinting forward
The cave troll charges over the slope
The line of dwarves is swamped by the evil mass, the survivors retreating uphill
Lone dwarves are surrounded and killed
Murin's last stand is ultimately doomed, and the darkness emerges triumphant
