However, instead of using the special rules listed on page 59 of the MELE rules (or wherever else these rules may appear), a Balrog player uses the following special rules:
MELE p.25 wrote:MOVING YOUR RINGWRAITH’S COMPANY
The company containing your Ringwraith may freely move from Darkhaven to Darkhaven and from a non-Darkhaven site to a Darkhaven. However, in order to move from a Darkhaven to a non-Darkhaven site, a Ringwraith must have a special resource card: a Black Rider card, a Fell Rider card, or a Heralded Lord card (i.e., the Ringwraith must be in Black Rider mode, in Fell Rider mode, or in Heralded Lord mode).

No rules similar to the MELE and CRF rules appear on page 59 of the MELE rules.METB wrote:A Balrog player may not include any of the following cards: Above the Abyss, Kill All But NOT the Halflings, The Lidless Eye, Bade to Rule , Morgul-blade, The Balrog (Ally), News of the Shire, The Black Council, Open to the Summons, Black Horse, Orders From Lugburz, Black Rider, Padding Feet, By the Ringwraith’s Word, The Ring Leaves its Mark, Creature of an Older World, Ringwraith cards, Ringwriath Unleashed Cards, Fell Rider, Sauron, The Fiery Blade, They Ride Together, Helm of Fear, Use Your Legs, Heralded Lord, While the Yellow Face Sleeps, Durin’s Bane, Balrog of Moria.
The implication: the company containing your Balrog cannot move to any non-Darkhaven site from any other site?
I have not found any rules (including cards) that overcome these limitations.
Balrog player dominance solved?
