What can players expect to do and play?
Together, you are entering the Lone-lands of Eriador. It is here that the One Ring lies, a seed of the past that will one day lead the world to open war against the returning Shadow. The Enemy is moving, and smoke issues once more from Mount Doom, in the land of Mordor…
The year is 2965 of the Third Age and the Shadow is returning. Rumors of strange things happening outside the borders of civilized lands are spreading and they sometimes reach the ears of individuals who recognize the sinister truth they hide. You are part of such a company of heroes seeking adventure. Restless warriors, curious scholars and wanderers, eager to seek what was lost or explore what was forgotten.Free League Publishing
The core rulebook is a 236-page hardback and contains everything players need to create adventures set in Tolkien’s world: 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.
Shire Adventures is a 104-page hardback that describes the Shire in significant detail, as well as five adventures and seven pre-generated characters, including famous Bagginses, Tooks, and Brandybucks. The contents of this book are adapted from The One Ring RPG‘s Starter Set.
The Loremaster’s Screen’s compendium about Rivendell includes a map of the valley and a plan of the house itself.
All three items are now available for purchase via the official website, and soon in hobby stores worldwide.
