The folks at Fria Ligan have announced a partnership with Sophisticated Games and Francesco Nepitello to produce The One Ring and 5th Edition versions of their Middle-earth roleplaying games.

The One Ring RPG - Fria Ligan

Previously under the stewardship of Cubicle 7, the much-loved roleplaying game by Nepitello will be coming back to the tabletop. The One Ring uses its own unique mechanics to tell the stories of your Fellowship in Tolkien's Middle-earth whilst the 5th Edition reimagining draws on tried and tested Dungeons & Dragons rules as its core.

This means that we should hopefully be seeing support for both The One Ring continuing as well as what was dubbed Adventures In Middle-earth when it was released by Cubicle 7.

Adventures In Middle-earth - Fria Ligan

It's not certain whether or not Adventures In Middle-earth will return in this current format or if it will go through some changes now it's with Fria Ligan, but this is good news for fans of Tolkien and roleplaying in Middle-earth. I am a big fan of these books and they give players a chance to play a different kind of campaign which spans years and is as much to do with what you do in your downtime as what you do when adventuring!

These games really got the spirit of Tolkien's Middle-earth right and it will be interesting to see how this all develops in the coming months. The agreement is set to go into action in June of 2020 so there isn't long to wait before we're shown what Fria Ligan has in the works.

Will you be watching this one closely?
