June Pre-Order: The One Ring RPG (Revised Edition)

theoneringRPGCubicle 7 has announced that players of its popular title, The One Ring™ Roleplaying Game, will be able to pre-order the revised edition – which has been reformatted for clarity, ease of use, and reference – this June. Presented as a single 320-page hardback volume containing all the rules and background information you need to start playing, it is compatible with all existing material for The One Ring.

The One Ring Roleplaying Game is based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Chock full of incredible artwork by leading artists, including John Howe and Jon Hodgson, and with evocative rules designed by award-winning games designer Francesco Nepitello, there has never been a Lord of the Rings game that’s more evocative of Tolkien’s unique vision. Along with rich and detailed background information, rules that focus on Tolkien’s themes, character types unique to the world and a setting that changes as the Tale of Years progresses, when you play The One Ring Roleplaying Game you really feel like you are playing in Middle-earth.

  1. I’ve been playing this rpg with my gaming group, and I can’t recommend it enough. TOR system near-perfectly captures all the ups and downs of adventuring in middle-earth. There are so many ways this is different than other rpgs. One key is that it’s not about killing orcs and looting their corpses, it’s about being true to your fellowship and the mission you’re on. Even traveling can be very dangerous, and (with a fully developed game system), traveling through dark and dangerous areas literally weighs heavy on a character’s soul.
