The Kickstarter for the new edition of the acclaimed roleplaying game The One Ring, set in the world of The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien and designed by Francesco Nepitello, has been launched by Free League Publishing. The highly anticipated fantasy game was funded in just 4 minutes.
The new edition for The One Ring roleplaying game, to be published by Free League in partnership with Sophisticated Games, was crowdfunded in only 4 minutes after the launch and has already raised more than $530,000, with 21 days to go.
In the new edition of The One Ring, the year is 2965 of the Third Age, and the players create a Company of heroes seeking adventure in the Lone-lands of Eriador, the region that once saw the glory of the North Kingdom of Arnor.
It is a desolate country, yet it sees the presence of many adventurous folk – Hobbits, Dwarves, Elves and Men. 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…
For about $36 you can back the project and get the core rules and starter set in a digital format. For $60 you get a hardback edition, the pdf format, stretch goals, and an Alpha pdf version. The campaign ends on March 4 and is expected to ship in November 2021.
