In a bit of really disappointing news, it turns out that Cubicle 7 are not going to be able to progress with both their Adventures In Middle-earth and The One Ring Roleplaying Games which have captured the imaginations of many over the years, especially with The One Ring so close to getting a second edition in 2020!

The One Ring RPG - Cubicle 7

These amazing roleplaying games which used their own unique system and adapted the 5th Edition D&D rules were a great window into the world of Middle-earth and they took a nice alternative take on the adventuring party and their objectives. Playing as genuinely good (or at least well-meaning) players was a fascinating edge and they included lots of very Tolkienesque rules in the mix for journeying, meeting unexpected guests and taking downtime to develop as characters.

I was a big fan of the Adventures In Middle-earth range which took the 5E rules and tweaked them to fit the setting. Their array of Region Guides were a lot of fun to read through and good for someone who loves Middle-earth, offering up a range of fascinating quests for you to undertake and characters to meet.

Sadly, because an agreement couldn't be reached with Sophisticated Games it looks like we're going to be losing these fascinating labours of love from the Cubicle 7 team. If you pre-order any of the line for either game you can find out more about the state of affairs HERE and look at getting refunds and the like from them.

With that being said, Cubicle 7 are still helming the roleplaying games for Warhammer Fantasy, Age Of Sigmar, Warhammer 40,000, Doctor Who and Lone Wolf so there is still a lot to watch out for.

Did you get to tinker with either of these roleplaying games?
