Unexpected news broke late November, Cubicle 7 announced they would scrap the One Ring RPG. They would even scrap the second generation of it, The Lord of the Rings RPG, they had been working so hard on for so long.
Why? A row over licenses.
If you’ve pre-ordered The Lord of the Rings RPG, then your money is safe. You can have it all back. Or, if you want, you can have it all back plus 25% if you take it as Cubicle 7 store credit.
It also means time is fast running out any ambition you may have to complete your The One Ring collection. These books probably won’t be available again, not unless someone turns piles of ash back into a bridge.
The One Ring Bundle of Holding
The One Ring Starter Collection will cost you $19.95 but has a retail value of $83. It contains;
- The One Ring Roleplaying Game
- Adventurer’s Companion
- Journeys and Maps
- Loremaster’s Screen and Lake-Town Guide.
You can get that collection from Bundle of Holding here.
While stocks last you’ll also get 30% off physical copies of The One Ring and Adventures in Middle-earth bought from the Cubicle 7 store.
If you beat the threshold price (which is currently $30.24) then you’ll also get the Bonus Collection. That has a retail value of $84 and contains;
- The Darkening of Mirkwood
- The Heart of the Wild
- Tales From Wilderland
One Ring Journeys Bundle of Holding
There’s a second bundle too. Originally published as “The One Ring +2” in 2017, this collection is slightly cheaper. The Starter Collection will set you back $14.95 and has a retail value of $64. It contains;
- Horse-Lords of Rohan
- Erebor – The Lonely Moutain
- Ruin of the North
You can buy this collection here.
The Threshold price for the Bonus Collection is $25.11. That’s good value for another bundle of One Ring products with a retail value of $64. They are;
- The Laughter of Dragons
- Oaths of the Riddermark
This second bundle also contains a 30% discount for specific physical books bought from Cubicle 7’s webstore. It’s only valid while stocks last, though, and I think this is a reflection that this sale is final.
Both bundles raise money for the charity Ocean Conservancy.
