The One Ring: Adventures over the Edge of the Wild [In reply to] Can't Post

TOR is a much more laid-back game than the typical D&D campaign. The rules are more streamlined and avoid getting bogged down in details. The selection of cultures in the core rules for starting characters is pretty limited: Bardings (Men of Dale); Beornings; Dwarves of the Lonely Mountain; Elves of Mirkwood; Hobbits of the Shire; and Woodmen of Wilderland. New cultures are introduced in some suppliments; so far, the Lake-town Sourcebook has introduced the Men of the Lake. I am presuming that the upcoming supplement for Rivendell (release date to be announced) will include both Elves of Rivendell and Rangers of the North, but time will tell.

Character advancement is paced more slowly than in D&D and is measured in increases in skills and abilities, not experience levels. Magic is subtle and player characters are not going to be hurling high-powered spells at adversaries. The game feels much closer to Tolkien's Middle-earth than Iron Crown's old MERP rpg.
