In 2011 The One Ring roleplaying game first appeared, and quickly became THE box for tabletoppers to reach for when they felt the urge to go questing in Middle Earth. Ten years later, Free League Publishing has announced a revised version — and the crowdfunding campaign launches today.
The new edition, created by game designer Francesco Nepitello, comes in a new hardbound volume containing a set of updated and streamlined rules based on player feedback over the years. The look of the game has been redesigned as well.
- 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.
- A new setting to experience – the Lone-lands of Eriador in the year is 2965 of the Third Age. This is a vast land that once saw the glory of the North Kingdom of the Dúnedain.
- A complete visual redesign of art and graphics, offering a view of Middle-earth that is fresh and familiar at the same time.
You can get the new revised version of The One Ring for a $36 pledge (digital PDF and all stretch goals). Increasing your pledge to $60 grants you both a physical and digital version of the core rulebook and the digital version of the Starter Set, as well as a preview alpha version of those things when they’re ready (Free League estimates this summer). If it’s something exclusive and expensive you’re after, the 10th Anniversary Collector’s Edition, bound in leather and gold-foil stamped, can be had for a $144 pledge.
The finalized version of The One Ring 2nd Edition should be out this fall.
