In August Cubicle 7 will release The One Ring: Adventures Over the Edge of the Wild is the Tolkien themed RPG that spans the time between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. According to this source, the core set features 2 books, the Loremaster’s Book and the Adventurer’s Book as well as a poster map and gaming dice. With cover art by Tolkien artist, John Howe and written by War of the Rings board game designer, Francesco Nepitello, the set is scheduled to be listed at $59.99 retail.
Regarding supplements, Cubicle 7 says:
The initial release will consist of two core books: the Loremaster’s Guide for GMs and the Adventurer’s Book for players. A full line of supplementary products will follow, with early releases including a Rivendell sourcebook and a campaign guide. (Source)
I’ll be very interested to see this new game. One thing I hope they include soon in follow-up releases are adventure modules similar to Paizo’s Pathfinder line. Maybe that’s what the campaign guide is — something to aid in creating adventures. I recall the old MERP (Middle-Earth Role Playing) adventures from the 80’s, and I’m very much looking forward to see what Cubicle 7 does in this upcoming RPG.
