The latest blog post from Cubicle 7 confirms an August 2011 release date for the One Ring. They also showcase some new artwork. One quote:
Chock full of incredible artwork by leading Tolkien artists, including John Howe, along with rich and detailed background information, The One Ring’s game engine focuses on the themes and character types that give Middle-earth its unique place in the annals of fantasy. There has never been a Lord of the Rings game that’s more evocative of Tolkien’s unique vision. The One Ring: Adventures over the Edge of the Wild releases in August, 2011. The core release consists of two core books in a premium slipcover: Loremaster’s Guide for GMs andAdventurer’s Handbook for players. (source)
The game is looking good. I will be very interested to check out this game and its game mechanics.
