The Action dice play a fundamental role in the game, as they dictate the options available to each player during a turn.

These dice have special icons on their faces, each icon representing a different group of action from which the players may choose. The different numbers and types of icons appearing on the Free Peoples Action dice and Shadow Action dice reflect the different attitudes of the two sides fighting the War of the Ring.

Note: The Free Peoples Action dice have two faces which show the “Character” action, and that on these dice the “Army” action only appears on a face combined with the “Muster” action.
