The One Ring Funded in 4 Minutes. Free League Publishing

The latest offering from the excellent Free League Publishing The One Ring 2nd Edition went live on Kickstarter today and was fully funded in just four minutes. The One Ring will give fans of The Lord of the Rings exactly what they have been waiting for and looks set to be another amazing product. As I type this the funding is almost at half a million pounds and still has another twenty days to go!

From the Press Release

“This is the Master-ring, the One Ring to rule them all.”

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, was launched today 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 200,000 USD during the first hour, 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…

We are proud to show The One Ring RPG in action:

“The Enemy still lacks one thing to give him strength and knowledge to beat down all resistance, break the last defenses, and cover all the lands in a second darkness. He lacks the One Ring.”
First released in 2011, THE ONE RING™’s award-winning design was hailed as the best attempt at bringing Middle-earth to the gaming table to date.
Today, it is time for the game to enter a new era – this new edition brings players further into the Twilight of the Third Age with a new hardbound volume, presenting:
A set of updated and streamlined rules, developed thanks to years of players’ feedback and raising the game to the standards of quality that have made Free League so popular.
A new setting to experience – the Lone-lands of Eriador in the year is 2965 of the Third Age. This is a vast land that once saw the glory of the North Kingdom of the Dúnedain.
A complete visual redesign of art and graphics, offering a view of Middle-earth that is fresh and familiar at the same time.
“… you have been chosen, and you must therefore use such strength and heart and wits as you have.”
