Free League Publishing has announced a brand-new edition of the popular tabletop RPG set in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-Earth will be hitting Kickstarter on February 11th. The One Ring second edition promises to provide an updated ruleset compared to the first edition of the game that was released back in 2011.
The One Ring: Second Edition
It’s been a full decade since The One Ring was originally released, and it’s probably about time that we got an updated version of the best attempt at bringing Middle-Earth to the tabletop ever conceived. According to the press release, the new edition of The One Ring will feature a “streamlined ruleset” that incorporates a decade of fan feedback to give even better rules for the game.
Right now, it’s not clear exactly what form these changes will take, but we should know more when the project hits Kickstarter on the 11th. Some fans will no doubt be keeping a close eye on proceedings, as the rules for the original The One Ring are very heavily thematic, and there could be some fear that streamlining the rules will force them to lose some of their flavor.

A bit of extra info that Free League Publishing did drop is a brand new teaser trailer for the upcoming release which you can check out below.
