The path to Middle-earth will soon open for new adventurers. At Gen Con, Free League Publishing (Alien, Forbidden Lands) revealed that the acclaimed second edition of The One Ring roleplaying game is coming soon in a 5E adaptation, entitled The Lord of the Rings Roleplaying.
The new edition of The One Ring™ RPG, set in the world of The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien and designed by Francesco Nepitello and Marco Maggi, became the most successful tabletop roleplaying core game ever on Kickstarter when it ended March 4, 2021, raising over $2 million. It also recently won a Golden ENNIE for best Interior Art at Saturday’s award ceremony.
The Lord of the Rings Roleplaying contains everything needed to create exciting 5E adventures set in the world’s most popular fantasy setting: six original heroic cultures from the land of Eriador, six new classes, a host of terrifying adversaries, and comprehensive rules for journeys, councils, wondrous artefacts, and the subtle magic of Middle-earth.
The Lord of the Rings Roleplaying core compendium will enter pre-order this fall, alongside a scenario module entitled Shire Adventures. A pre-order will give immediate access to a full PDF of the products. The retail release of both is planned for Q1 2023.
