The One Ring RPG 2nd Ed. Middle-earth Map Reveal

From Cubicle 7:

Quote
This #TORsday we are delighted to share the map of Middle-earth for The One Ring – The Lord of the Rings Roleplaying Game!

"I wisely started with a map."

The new edition of The One Ring will see players venture to new and previously unexplored lands, and tread the well worn paths they have travelled for years, so we knew players and Loremasters alike would need a complete map of Middle-earth. To take on this mammoth task we needed a truly gifted cartographer, so we sought out the services of the incredible Jared Blando. Jared has created some of the most memorable and iconic maps in tabletop roleplaying so we knew he would deliver a truly special version of Middle-earth. And he has done just that.

One thing that I find particularly notable about the map is that, though the Mountains of the East are not visible, it shares several details that are also specific to the maps that have appeared at @LOTRonPrime such as the rivers flowing from the east and south into the Sea of Rhûn.

Hills and Islands

Another similarity to Amazon's maps is the extension of the Iron Hills well into the East (something I neglected to remark upon earlier).

For whatever reason, the islands of Tol Morwen, Tor Fuin and Tor Himling, all off the coast of Forlindon, are missing from the map. Perhaps they will show up at a later date on a more detailed regional map.

Journeys and the Player's Map

Cubicle 7 posted an article about Journeys in the second edition. The story includes the Player's Map that is less colorful than the one previously released. I'll see if I can find an image that can be posted here.



And here is how a Journey from Rivendell to Lothlórien via the Redhorn Pass would look (1 hex = 20 miles):

The Shire (Buckland seems to need a gardener):



Northern Mirkwood:



Minas Tirith and Mount Doom:
