Cubicle 7 Entertainment and Sophisticated Games Release Rivendell Supplement for The One Ring Roleplaying Game™

Rivendell cover 800The latest supplement for the award-winning The One Ring Roleplaying Game™, Rivendell supplement, is hitting the shelves of US gaming stores this week.

The much-anticipated Rivendell supplement not only opens up a whole new area of Middle-earth for heroes to explore – Eastern Eriador – along with providing two new cultures, the iconic Rangers of the North and the High Elves of Rivendell. The supplement also provides a treasure trove of new rules for use by the Loremaster, including rules for Magical Treasure, Powerful Adversaries and the Eye of Mordor.

“Rivendell is a true ‘companion’ to the core rules of The One Ring. It contains very important rules, things that can be considered to be outside the scope of the very focused design goal of the original game, but that will certainly be very welcomed by all fans, everywhere…” says designer of The One Ring, Francesco Nepitello.

More About Rivendell

This setting supplement will take adventures in The One Ring west across the Misty Mountains to the Last Homely House, expanding play into eastern Eriador, covering not only Rivendell itself, but Angmar, Fornost, Mount Gram, Tharbad and everywhere in between.

There are also rules to enable the Loremaster to create Magical Treasure; allow players to play as Rangers of the North and High Elves of Rivendell; for the Loremaster to turn the baleful Eye of Mordor on their company; and pitch them against more powerful adversaries than ever before – including the Witch-king of Angmar!

This hardcover, 144-page, full-colour supplement includes:

  • Background for the Last Homely House, the sanctuary of Rivendell itself.
  • Write-ups of the characters that might be encountered in Imladris, from Elrond and Arwen to Glorfindel and the White Council.
  • New Fellowship undertakings, including rules for composing your own songs.
  • A history of Arnor, Angmar and the Dúnedain.
  • A region guide to Eastern Eriador, including the Barrow-downs, the Trollshaws and Angmar.
  • New adversaries to face, including Ettins, Hill-men of Rhudaur and the toughest Troll of them all, the Queen of Castle Hill.
  • A bestiary of different types of undead creatures, from Bog Soldiers and Barrow-wights to the Lord of the Nazgûl himself, the Witch-king of Angmar.
  • Rules for powerful adversaries, allowing you to customise any monster to provide a challenge for even the most heroic of adventurers.
  • A set of optional rules, the Eye of Mordor, to track how much attention the Enemy reserves for the company.
  • Rules for adding Magical Treasure to your campaign, including dozens of ready-made artefacts, some famous, others less so.
  • Two new playable Heroic Cultures: the Rangers of the North and the High Elves of Rivendell.

Rivendell is written by Francesco Nepitello (designer of The One Ring Roleplaying Game, The Battle of Five Armies, Hobbit Tales and War of the Ring), with additional contributions from Amado Angulo, Shane Ivey, Andrew Kenrick, Marco Maggi, Thomas Morwinsky and James M. Spahn.

It is lavishly illustrated by Jon Hodgson, Jan Pospíšil and Jeremy McHugh, with fantastic maps of Eastern Eriador on the endpapers created by Paul Bourne.
