TOR RPG: Rivendell & The Shire Reveal!

TOR RPG: Rivendell & The Shire Reveal! Can't Post

It's #TORsday at Cubicle 7. It looks like we may be getting an updated Rivendell sourcebook for The One Ring as well as a brand new supplement focusing on the Shire!

'The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.'

With The One Ring – The Lord of the Rings™ Roleplaying Game the Tale of Years is advancing closer to the events of the War of the Ring and the lands of Middle-earth are growing dark. But this does not mean that there are not places of life, joy, and respite. The folk of Middle-earth still laugh, drink, and sing and below are two such places your Company can find respite.

If the default year is T.A. 2965 (more-or-less) then the last Free Fair was in 2964 and the next will fall occur in 2971. The current Thain of the Shire is (as noted in the story) Fortinbras Took (II). The current Master of Buckland is Rorimac ‘Goldfather’ (later ‘Old Rory’) Brandybuck.

Gamers? [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm glad that these posts are at least getting views, though I see a decided lack of comments. Do we have many tabletop (pencil & paper or even play-by-post) gamers here? Is anyone playing either The One Ring RPG or Adventures in Middle-earth?

Update! [In reply to] Can't Post

Cubicle 7's Emmet Byrne has posted a clarification: "These are both from the core, the art and the write up. No plans to update Rivendell until it goes out of print, and no plans yet for a Shire supplement."

I wasn't sure that the original Rivendell sourcebook was close to going out of print, but I really was hoping for an announcement for a sourcebook for the Shire.

That bridge... [In reply to] Can't Post

I think I'd need a run-up to get up that incline. (Of course, it wouldn't be a problem for Legolas.) Angelic

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.
