This looks great! [In reply to] Can't Post

Am glad to see this is getting a second chance. The first effort was ultimately dropped by publisher Cubicle7 in 2019. Hopefully this try will succeed in getting the project to the finish line. :)

Thanks for the update Otaku-sempai. Whoohoo!

Cheers! pax

You're welcome! I'm not sure that I'd say that Cubicle 7 dropped The One Ring, but they did part ways with Sophisticated Games in 2019 and lost the license.

Oh ya, goal met in just a few scant minutes! [In reply to] Can't Post

Though, the goal could be said to have been rather low to begin with at just $12K. Still, in less than 24hrs they've exceeded their ask by more than 50X!!!

Update #21: Thank you! Thank you all! [In reply to] Can't Post

The kickstarter campaign generated over $2 million USD. Not bad at all!


Quote
Well... what can we say other than the most hearfelt thank you to all of you lovely Humans, Hobbit, Elves and Dwarves who helped us make this campaign such an amazing success! We will be back tomorrow but for now we lie down for a bit before getting to grips with the real work of getting The One Ring Second Edition into your hands as soon as possible!

We leave you with an another absolutely fresh piece of art from Alvaro Tapia, and the subject matter couldn't be more fitting for what is not the end of the campaign, but the beginning of a great adventure!

Update #23: Pledge Manager Opens This Week [In reply to] Can't Post

The pledge manager is expected to go live on Thursday, April 15, 2011:


Quote
Hello!

While the ins and outs of shipping took a little longer than expected to get sorted, the pledge manager is now ready to launch and will go live in just a couple of days, most likely on Thursday. You will then get an email with the invite, and anyone who missed the Kickstarter campaign will be able to jump aboard as a late backer.

From a production standpoint, the text for the Core Rules and Starter Set are nearly complete and we are heading into layout. This is an exciting step as everything comes together - boring looking word files turn into beautiful pages with art, color and iconography! When we have some more spreads to show you we will post them here. There is of course also the Alpha PDF that you will get access to as soon as we can possibly make it.

One thing you haven't seen yet is the Eriador map by Francesco Mattioli. It will be a little bit longer before we can show you the entire map in color, but we will be able to share an inked preview of the map very soon. The pledge manager will be open for several months, so if you are undecided you can of course wait to see the final color version of the map.

When the pledge manager goes live we will make another update. But for now, lets have a look at some new art from Jan Pospíšil that you will se in The One Ring™ Starter Set.
