Free League Publishing has revealed that the first expansion for the second edition of The One Ring RPG, Ruins of the Lost Realm, will be released on October 25 with pre-orders available now. Journey to the wetlands of Eriador, between the Misty Mountain and the Mountains of Lune where the Hobbits found both Men and Elves.
A remnant still dealt there of the Dunedain, the kings of Men that came over the Sea out of Westernesse, but they were dwindling fast and the lands of their the North Kingdom were falling far and wide into waste. A region often described as deserted becomes a crucible for adventure. This is an illustrated 120-page hardcover volume and includes the following:
Chapter 1: Fog Over Eriador offers a description of the regions that once were part of the kingdom of Arnor, with a focus on the city of Tharbad.
Chapter 2: A Gathering Storm provides the Loremaster with a set of narrative elements aimed at building a possible future for the land of Eriador as a whole, including the description of many looming threats, Loremaster characters and their agendas.
Chapter 3: Landmarks adds twelve sites of interest in the style of the one presented in the core volume. These locations depict both ‘historical’ sites mentioned in The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit, and others that have been created specifically for the game.
