The Lord of the Rings Roleplaying for 5E is coming May 9
The path to Middle-earth will soon open for new adventurers. Free League Publishing has revealed that the 5E adaptation of the award-winning second edition of The One Ring RPG, entitled The Lord of the Rings Roleplaying, will be released May 9.
The Lord of the Rings Roleplaying is a 236-page beautifully designed and illustrated hardback volume that contains what players need to create 5E adventures set in the world’s most popular fantasy setting: six original heroic cultures from the land of Eriador, six new classes, a host of terrifying adversaries, and comprehensive rules for journeys, councils, wondrous artifacts, and the subtle magic of Middle-earth.
Shire Adventures is a 104-page hardback volume that describes the Shire in great detail, as well as five short adventures and seven pre-generated characters, including famous Bagginses, Tooks, and Brandybucks! The contents of Shire Adventures are adapted from the Starter Set for The One Ring RPG.
A Loremaster’s Screen with a compendium about Rivendell, including a map of the valley and a plan of the house itself, is also available.
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.
