About The One Ring Roleplaying Game
The One Ring roleplaying game is based on The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, two extraordinary works of fiction by the beloved author and respected academic, John Ronald Reuel Tolkien. With these books, Tolkien introduced readers to his greatest creation, the world of Middle-earth, a mythic land from a remote past.
With The One Ring, Middle-earth is yours to explore — you will travel the land searching for clues about the return of the Shadow, and have the chance to play a part in the struggle against the Enemy.
First released in 2011, the game’s award-winning design was hailed as the best attempt at bringing Middle-earth to the gaming table to date. Now the game has entered a new era and brings players further into the Twilight of the Third Age.
The year is 2965 of the Third Age and the Shadow is returning. Rumours of strange things happening outside the borders of civilized lands are spreading. They sometimes reach the ears of individuals who recognize the sinister truth they hide. You are such a hero seeking adventure, eager to seek what was lost or explore what was forgotten.
You are entering the Lone-lands of Eriador. 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.
The One Ring: Strider Mode is a digital release only and available at DriveThruRPG
