Fans of J.R.R Tolkien’s Lord of The Rings can enter the world of Middle Earth in an upcoming Kickstarter for a brand new edition of The One Ring from its new publisher Free League Games. The Tales From The Loop publisher will launch the new campaign on February 11, which will feature streamlined and updated rules from designer Franceso Nepitello (The War of the Ring). This will be the first release after the rights moved from previous published Cubicle 7, as well as a celebration of The One Ring’s 10th Anniversary. You can find more details below.
The One Ring is a tabletop roleplaying game based on The Hobbit™and The Lord of the Rings™, two extraordinary works of fiction by the beloved author and respected academic, John Ronald Reuel Tolkien.
The first edition, released in 2011, was hailed as the best attempt at bringing Middle-earth to the gaming table to date, thanks to its thematic rules and painstaking attention to detail. For 10 years, players of the game have traveled far and wide across Middle-earth, adventuring for multiple decades of game time.
Today, it is time for the game to enter a new era – the new edition of The One Ring brings players further into the Twilight of the Third Age with a new hardbound volume, presenting a set of updated and streamlined rules, developed thanks to years of players’ feedback and raising the game to the standards of quality that have made Free League so popular. The look of the game itself has been completely redesigned, offering a view of Middle-earth that is fresh and familiar at the same time.
The new edition is created by game designer Francesco Nepitello in collaboration with Free League Publishing, creators of award-winning tabletop RPGs such as ALIEN, Forbidden Lands and Tales from the Loop.
The One Ring RPG will soon bring players further into the Twilight of the Third Age. More in-depth information will be revealed at the launch of the Kickstarter.
