The second edition of the popular tabletop role-playing game (TTRPG), The One Ring, recently went live on Kickstarter and saw itself funded in just 4 minutes!
Back in 2011, Free League Publishing released a new TTRPG titled, The One Ring. Set in the fantastical world created by the renowned J. R. R. Tolkien, the game was immensely popular with fans of tabletop role-playing and The Lord of the Rings alike. I mean, who doesn’t want to live out their dreams of being a hobbit?
So, What’s New in The One Ring?
The One Ring is back for a second edition, published in partnership with Sophisticated Games. This sourcebook covers the Twilight of the Third Age, or more specifically, the moments from Bilbo finding the One Ring, to the final fight against Sauron that saw the ring destroyed. Players take on the role of ordinary folk within Middle Earth who take up adventuring once it becomes clear that The Shadow is threatening their way of life.
This second edition of The One Ring boasts the following exciting features:
- Updated rules, developed thanks to years of players’ feedback;
- A new setting: the Lone-lands of Eriador; and
- A complete redesign of art and graphics, helping bring Middle Earth to life.
