The Kickstarter for the new edition of THE ONE RING™ roleplaying game, set in the world of The Lord of the Rings™ by J.R.R. Tolkien and published by Free League, is one of the most successful campaigns ever launched for a tabletop RPG. With two days left to go, the Kickstarter has raised over $1.5 million.
Based on requests from the fans, Free League Publishing today added a brand new solo play mode to the long list of stretch goals for the game.
<b aria-level=”2″>Thank you! Thank you all!<div>
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!

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.

Pledge Manager Is Live!Apr 16, 2021 at 7:55 am
Today, we have launched the Pledge Manager for the new edition of The One Ring™! By now, some of you should already have started [receiving] invites, so check your inboxes. It will be sent to the email address you used when backing this Kickstarter.
In the pledge manager, you will be able to enter your shipping address, pay for your shipping, pick your addons (or get new ones!), and even upgrade your reward level. It should all be fairly self-explanatory. If you run into trouble, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (it's more effective than writing messages here at the Kickstarter). At the end of this update, you'll find an short FAQ about the pledge manager.
We will keep the Pledge Manager open until we need to lock it down to finalize production in the late summer, but even after that you will be able to change your address. We will give you plenty of warnings before locking it for new orders.
Francesco Mattioli is furiously working away, inking the Eriador Map! This part is all done by hand and then color and text will be added digitally. We don't have the entire map to show you quite yet, but can at least leave you with a couple of teasers...

May Update! Layout underway!
Production of The One Ring™ is moving along and we want to give you some updates of what is going on. First of all we just want to let you all know that the Pledge Manager has been updated to allow for the level of security mandated by the EU. Those of you who have had trouble with this have received an email from Pledge Manager about this, but if you tried to check out earlier and it didn’t work, log back in now and give it another try.
As the game is now in layout, the exciting process of seeing mundane looking words in a text document turn into something that is both inviting to read and beautiful to look at, is underway! Layout is the magic ingredient that turns text, art and rules presentation into a comprehensive whole. You have already seen the sketches for the elven graphics in our first sample spreads (below), but these have been refined and updated, and corresponding graphics for Elves, Dwarves, Hobbits, Men and even the Shadow are near complete and will allow us to tailor the look of the page or chapter (or character sheet).

<b aria-level=”2″>Bonus Update: Page Spreads, Eriador Map, and Starter Set Cover!
Just in time for the weekend we come to you, bearing gifts and good tidings! As we teased last time around we have some things to show you. With layout underway The One Ring™ is starting to look very much like some artifact you might come across in the libraries of Rivendell.
Below you can see a number of spreads from the Prologue and Adventurers chapters, revealing some new art as well! Christian Granath and Dan Algstrand, two true veterans of RPG graphical design, are working in tandem to have The One Ring™ look its absolute best. It bears mentioning that these spreads are still not final – as we mentioned earlier, we are waiting for some more graphical components so not only the Elves are represented, but Dwarves, Hobbits and Men as well.
