Free League Publishing’s The Lord of the Rings Tabletop RPG Arrives May 9

The Lord of the Rings Roleplaying Game, a tabletop RPG, original designers Francesco Nepitello and Marco Maggi are set to release a new, alternate version which is compatible with 5E on May 9.

The One Ring Roleplaying Game’s first edition won numerous awards and maintains a significant following more than ten years later. The second edition from Free League Publishing is equally beloved, enjoying current support and many devoted players.

Free League Publishing describes the core rulebook as:

The Lord of the Rings Roleplaying is 236-page beautifully designed and illustrated hardback volume that contains what players need to create 5E adventures set in the world’s most popular fantasy setting: six original heroic cultures from the land of Eriador, six new classes, a host of terrifying adversaries, and comprehensive rules for journeys, councils, wondrous artefacts, and the subtle magic of Middle Earth.

There are two supplemental items available upon release. 

Shire Adventures is a 104-page hardback volume that describes the Shire in great detail, as well as five short adventures and seven pre-generated characters, including famous Bagginses, Tooks, and Brandybucks! The contents of Shire Adventures are adapted from the Starter Set for The One Ring RPG. A Loremaster’s Screen with a compendium about Rivendell, including a map of the valley and a plan of the house itself, is also available.

The One Ring Roleplaying Game became the most successful tabletop roleplaying core game on Kickstarter in March 2021. It takes inspiration from the works of J.R.R Tolkien with Nepitello and Maggi designing the tabletop RPG.

The trailer for The Lord of the Rings Roleplaying may be found below, featuring Elijah Wood, Deborah Ann Woll, and Reggie Watts, among others. This includes footage from a live play Lost Odyssey Events recorded at the LA Comic Con.
