So I'm currently trying to beat the Nightmare version of Escape From Dol Guldur. As we know, the players cannot play more than one ally per round. My question is whether playing an event (such as Sneak Attack) or another ally (such as Filli & Killi) that bring an ally into play count toward this restriction?

My initial feeling is this would be legal since I've not paid to play this ally card, but I didn't see this in the FAQ and couldn't find it elsewhere in the forums.

Yes, it is legal. Putting a card into play (through a card effect) is not the same as playing a card (by paying its resource cost).

This is, subtly, clarified in the FAQ in the example in section 1.16:

"Example: The quest Through the Caverns (CORE 124) has the text, "The players, as a group, cannot play more than one ally card each round." While this quest is active, a player can put an ally into play with Stand and Fight (CORE 51), even if an ally has already been played this round."
