Enter Middle-earth and explore the lone-lands of Eriador. Free League Publishing today released Ruins of the Lost Realm, the first expansion for the award-winning second edition of The One Ring™ RPG based on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien.
In the westlands of Eriador, between the Misty Mountains and the Mountains of Lune, the Hobbits found both Men and Elves. Indeed, a remnant still dwelt there of the Dúnedain, the kings of Men that came over the Sea out of Westernesse; but they were dwindling fast and the lands of their North Kingdom were falling far and wide into waste. A region often described as deserted becomes a crucible for adventure.
“After Arvedui the North-kingdom ended, for the Dúnedain were now few and all the peoples of Eriador diminished.”
Ruins of the Lost Realm is a beautifully illustrated 120-page hardcover volume. Contents:
- Chapter 1: Fog Over Eriador offers a description of the regions that once were part of the kingdom of Arnor, with a focus on the city of Tharbad.
- Chapter 2: A Gathering Storm provides the Loremaster with a set of narrative elements aimed at building a possible future for the land of Eriador as a whole, including the description of many looming threats, Loremaster characters, and their agendas.
- Chapter 3: Landmarks adds 12 sites of interest in the style of the one presented in the core volume. These locations depict both ‘historical’ sites mentioned in The Lord of the Rings™ or The Hobbit™, and others that have been created specifically for the game.
The histories tell that the King returned in 3019 and brought better days — but there may be lost tales that tell what happened in the lone-lands in the many decades before the War of the Ring.
