Free League Publishing has teamed with Sophisticated Games to release The One Ring roleplaying game and Starter Set in March of 2022. The One Ring is a tabletop roleplaying game based on Tolkien's fantasy classics: The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. The Starter Set includes 3 softcover booklets, one large double-sided map, 8 pre-generated characters, 30 gear cards, and 6 double-sided "combat stance/journey" cards. If you buy Starter Set box, you also get a set of dice which includes 6 six-sided dice and 2 twelve-sided dice with unique symbols on two of the sides.
The One Ring is set in the year 2960 of the Third Age. This year falls in the time period after the events of The Hobbit and before the story in The Lord of the Rings. Most of the material in the Starter Set focuses on the Shire, a pastoral land of rolling hills and gentle streams that has been inhabited by hobbits for well over a thousand years, according the timeline provided. It makes sense that the Starter Set would focus on the Shire since both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings began their stories there.
Its no surprise then, that one side of the large double-sided map provides a detailed look at the area of the Shire, dotted with small hamlets and crossed with roads. The other side of the map widens to look at the whole region of Eriador, of which the Shire is roughly central. Keeping with the theme, 7 of the 8 pre-generated characters, called Player-Heroes, are hobbits, with one dwarf to add a little variety.
