Cubicle 7 previews The One Ring races
Posted by Scott Malthouse
Cubicle 7, the company that distills almost every intellectual property ever into tabletop imagination fodder, is slowly leaking information about their upcoming title like an incontinent old man wearing a Sauron mask.
Their latest batch of info pellets come in the form of brief overviews of each of the cultures in TOR:AOTEOTW.

Here are the details straight from the nerd horse's mouth:
Each set released will focus on a different region of Middle-earth, presumably each with its own unique cultures and threats. I've seen a few complaints about this staggered approach but I think it works well, and here's why. As most Tolkien-lovers know, Middle-earth is a vast continent with thousands of years of detailed history, geography and culture. Handling every one of these in one book just wouldn't be possible. Having a focus on a particular area allows for a much richer and detailed setting than a general overview of everything ever.
I'll keep my eye out for more The One Ring reveals. But until then, keep it secret - keep it safe.
