Lord Of The Rings Tabletop RPG Getting Second Edition

The Lord of the Rings tabletop RPG has found a new publisher for its second edition, and it's beginning a Kickstarter very soon.


The One Ring, a tabletop RPG based on the Lord of the Rings universe, is getting a second edition. The second edition will get a Kickstarter campaign to fund its release, starting February 11.

The first edition of the tabletop RPG released in 2011 from game designer Francesco Nepitello, who is returning for the second edition. This new edition will feature a new hardbound source book with updated and streamlined rules based on feedback from the last decade of play. It also offers redesigned visual elements for the game, with a "fresh and familiar" look at Middle-earth.

The Kickstarter page is now live ahead of the official start, with an option to sign up for notifications. It does not specify a goal amount yet.

The original publisher, Cubicle 7, announced it would drop plans for a second edition in 2019. The rights were later acquired by Free League Publishing, the company behind tabletop RPGs like Alien, Forbidden Lands, and Tales from the Loop.
