The story that really set the standard for fantasy literature, The Lord of the Rings is an influence on everything that's come since. But now, you can head back to that source material and join with the adventures on Middle-earth with the Lord of the Rings RPG's newest edition, available to pre-order now from Free League Publishing.
From the article:
Middle-earth is opening up for new adventurers! The pre-order for the 5E adaptation of the award winning second edition of The One Ring™ RPG, entitled The Lord of the Rings™ Roleplaying, alongside the Shire™ Adventures compendium and a 5E Loremaster's Screen, has been launched today. The pre-order gives immediate access to complete PDFs.
The new edition of The One Ring™ RPG, set in the world of The Lord of the Rings™ by J.R.R. Tolkien and designed by Francesco Nepitello and Marco Maggi, became the most successful tabletop roleplaying core game ever on Kickstarter in March 2021. Now Middle-earth is open for new roleplayers with a brand new 5E adaptation.
The official retail release of all items is planned for early 2023, but the pre-order in the Free League webshop gives immediate access to complete PDFs of The Lord of the Rings™ Roleplaying and Shire™ Adventures. You can even report your feedback on these PDFs on our forums before they go to print!
Note that PDFs of the 5E Loremaster's Screen and Rivendell Compendium will be shared at a later date.
