They took us to the 1980s that never were with Tales From The Loop, and the cold depths of space with Alien, now premier roleplaying publisher Free League brings The One Ring, the definitive roleplaying realisation of JRR Tolkien's world of Middle-Earth and The Lord of The Rings, to Kickstarter on Thursday.
"The first edition of The One Ring, 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 travelled 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 One Ring RPG is created by game designer Francesco Nepitello in collaboration with Free League."
The Kickstarter is scheduled to launch at 3pm Central European Time (9am US Eastern) on Thursday (February 11).
