Last year, Free League introduced a revised edition of their famed Lord of the Rings replaying game, The One Ring, in a crowdfunding campaign that set new records. By the time the campaign concluded, it was the most successful tabletop roleplaying core game ever hosted on Kickstarter. As every single company on this Earth knows except for HBO Max, when there’s demand for a product, you keep making it…hence a new variant of The One Ring has been announced for release next year.
