As someone who is only passingly familiar with tabletop RPGs, I can't speak to how The One Ring compares to Dungeons and Dragons or other rulesets. However, as someone who is only passingly familiar with such things, I found The One Ring to be a system complex enough to offer varying experiences and situations, but also simple enough to understand as you're reading it and putting it into practice.

The best thing about it is the fact that the authors and compilers stuck as close as possible to th

The artwork is beautiful, very nice drawings. It all stays very true to Tolkien and it uses a lot of great inspiring quotes. The game mechanics are interesting and well explained.

So...

I finally got around to reading my copy of the first edition of The One Ring. I did so while referring to the Clarifications and Amendments document produced to bring this printing up to date with the second edition, as well as the expanded index. Both of which are available from the publisher's website.

The good part of this game is that the mechanics largely support the setting. A lot of this centers on the Hope mechanic. Hope is a resource that every hero has. It can be spent to turn some fail

I admit to having somewhat mixed feelings on this. It does seem like it has at least the potential to be a good fit for Middle-Earth. After all, rather than being a kludge of another system, this is designed from the ground up for Tolkien. And I feel like it might do a good job of it. Stuff like rules for journeys and the Fellowship phase are pretty cool, and as I reread Lord of the Rings, I see justifications for them in the original text. Also, the choice of Wilderland as default setting is a ...more

A very good adaption of the Lord of the Rings setting. The mechanics of the game are different enough from the other RPGs out there to not feel like a rehash. Or that the designers were trying to shoehorn the setting into an established game system. It evokes the feeling of the world and lore as laid out my Tolkien.

Looks to be an interesting system tied closely to the thematic elements of the books. One concern is that it seems to be excessive on dice-rolling, especially in resolving the Journey aspect of the game. The highlights seem to be balancing endurance versus fatigue to prevent weariness and balancing hope vs shadow to prevent being miserable. The permanence of shadow points that could cause you to retire and the ever present threat of heroic death also brings in the theme.

A great take on Tolkien's world. I think this captures the feel of Middle-earth better than any system before it.

There are a few minor things I don't care for, like social introductions, but most of the rules are elegant and interesting.

It's a little difficult to adventure in the time period of the Lord of the Rings books, and that wasn't helped by the long delay in publishing adventures, but I still hope to get a full campaign in one day.

Really looking forward to playing this. I got a little lost in the character creation, but I'm certain it will work itself out.
