Interest Check - The One Ring (Lord of the Rings System)
« on: May 22, 2012, 07:51:22 PM »
Hello everyone!

Cubicle 7 has gained the rights to make a new Lord of the Rings System game that they are calling The One Ring or TOR for short. It is set a few years after the death of Smaug, and the Battle of the Five Armies. It is set around Mirkwood, and the Misty Mountains.

As far as the system goes its rather simple and seems to be well suited for a online game. I know that the game is still very new and people aren't likely to have books for it but I can help you with figuring out the rules and what not.

Anyway's I just wanted to see if there was any interest in doing a system based Lord of the Rings game on here. :) I will provide more details if there is.

I'm interested. I've been dying to give The One Ring a go. I'd love to get a stab at playing a Beorning or an Elf

That's cool :) I am ideally looking for something like 4-6 players. Though I am doubtful if I will find that many.

I'm provisionally interested; I'll look at the book and get a better idea if this's something I want to do.

This sounds really neat, I'll go find a copy of the book and check it out!

Cool looks like there is some interest at least. :) I will give some more details tomorrow.

I warn you the book is...somewhat scattered in it's character creation rules. If you have any questions please ask :)

The most confusing part is how favored attributes interact with favored skills, I had to search high and low for how that worked.

I love trying out new systems.  I'll see if I can find a copy online.

The book really does seem like its layout could have been better arranged, but the artwork and generally appearance is really beautiful. I really hope this game gets going, because reading the book really has me rather excited to give the system a shot. Granted most of my Tolkien-knowledge comes from the film and Lord of the Rings Online, but I'm still really eager to play around in this world. I hope Iressi comes back, and has something in mind that will let us be grand heroes fighting against the Shadow.

I've got the book now, and I'm game. 

Would you still like to GM?  And anything in particular we should know about the campaign you'd like to run?
