One Ring to Rule Them All…

Cubicle 7 have been teasing artwork for their upcoming release of The One Ring, Second Edition, and to my eye, it looks amazing.

Over on their website they have been posting regular updates showing off the artwork for the cover, interior, and the playable cultures, like this one, which shows off the Men of Minas Tirith, Hobbits of the Shire, and the High Elves of Rivendell.

The cover for the new edition looks fantastic, vibrant, full of action, and even includes a certain iconic wizard. The art piece was created by Johan Grenier, and is part of a larger piece, which can be seen here. Very cool, and even better, it ties in to a free adventure that will be released alongside the new edition.

Even more stunning that this though, is the cover and art for the Collectors Edition. It reminds me very much of the art and style of the very best hard cover versions of The Lord of Rings.

The Collectors edition comes in a slip case, and the whole production looks amazing. You can read about on Cubicle 7’s website here. The Collector’s Edition Cover is by Rachael Macken, and the map that is spot highlighted on the slipcase is by Jared Blando.

I have been thrilled to have had the opportunity to write for The One Ring Second Edition line, including contributing to The One Ring Starter Set, and the upcoming title Tales from Middle-earth. As a long time lover of the Lord of the Rings and Middle-earth, it has been a real thrill! That everything Cubicle 7 has shown off for the Second Edition looks so good is just icing on the cake!

Devil’s Run Update

How would you survive in the mayhem and anarchy of a post-apocalyptic world? A wasteland of scarcity, danger, and dominated by gangs? Red Scar have just updated the Quickstart for their role playing game: Devil’s Run. Devil’s Run is a fun and crazy post-apocalyptic setting, with all the chrome, oil stains, shell casings and mayhem one would expect of the wasteland.

The Devil’s Run Quickstart includes rules for Modiphius Entertainment’s 2D20 system, which powers Star Trek Adventures, Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of, John Carter of Mars, Infinity the Role Playing Game, and more, as well rules for running it with the Savage Worlds SWADE system, from Pinnacle Entertainment.

I didn’t contribute anything to the Quickstart, but I did write some pieces for the soon-to-be-released core book. The game is a lot of fun, and well worth checking out. You can find the updated Quickstart, for free, on DriveThruRPG here.
