Day Five – The One Ring

“It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.”

The One Ring Roleplaying Game was another important milestone for us at Cubicle 7. Designed by Francesco Nepitello and Marco Maggi, the game is based on The Hobbit™ and The Lord of the Rings™ by J.R.R. Tolkien. The One Ring was released in 2011 and garnered praise and won many awards for its depiction of Middle-earth and the care, love, and respect with which it treated Tolkien’s works.

Since its launch, The One Ring has seen the release of over a dozen supplements. From their earliest adventures through Wilderland, players have explored from the Last Homely House of Rivendell to the far reaches of Eriador, they have travelled south to parley with the Horse-lords of Rohan and returned to explore the legendary Kingdom Under the Mountain in Erebor, and they have lived through the Darkening of Mirkwood and the growing threat of the Shadow.

A vibrant community, brought together by a shared love of the works of Tolkien, has grown around The One Ring. Though our journeys together have taken us ranging far across Middle-earth there is still plenty to be explored – both above and below ground. This year, 8 years after the games initial launch, will be a big one for The One Ring. We can’t wait to share this journey with you.
