The One Ring & AiME News

Interesting news from a recent interview with Francesco Nepitello, author of The One Ring (TOR) and indirectly of it’s 5e derivative, Adventures in Middle-earth (AiME). As way of background,  the RPG company Free League recently acquired the license for TOR after Cubicle 7 let the license expire. People have wondered about what they will do with the Middle-earth RPG license. Here’s a video with detailed news:

Highlights:

  • New locations will include Eriador, Tharbad, the Grey Havens, and Rivendell
  • All new cultures
  • Conversion guides for the existing 6 cultures (eventually a supplemental book that has all the cultures in one volume)
  • Shire (starter set)
  • Moria!
  • TOR will come first, AiME second
  • Largely backward compatible (streamlining Journey rules for example)
  • Coming “early next year”

To get in on the upcoming beta, keep an eye on the Free League forum.

In other news, Andreas Lundström has a “Riddles in the Dark” TOR podcast coming up but already have two extended interviews with game designer Francesco Nepitello.
