We’ve been blown away by the fantastic reception to the game, culminating in the Origin Award nomination for the best RPG of 2011. Thanks for your support; it means a huge amount to us. If you haven’t seen it already, check out Words of the Wise, the free PDF adventure we released as a thank-you to everyone playing the game.

The design team has been hard at work on the supplements, as well as developing our plans for the game. We originally envisaged the game as a series of core sets interspersed with smaller supplemental releases, but while we were preparing material for the second core set, we realised that we would be repeating more information than we had expected. That didn’t sit right with us – both Cubicle 7 and Sophisticated Games strongly believe in producing quality games that give gamers value for money. The last thing we wanted was to leave people thinking that they had to buy the same information again just to get the new content. We also realised that moving away from the core set structure would give us a greater degree of freedom with our releases, and that we would be able to cover more areas of Middle-earth and playable cultures sooner.

So, we decided to keep the The One Ring: Adventures over the Edge of the Wild slip case as the core set for the game, and release supplemental material in sourcebook-sized chunks.

The current 2012 schedule is:

Tales from Wilderland - Adventure anthology playable as a campaign - May/June*

The One Ring Dice Set - Seven dice in hard plastic box - May/June*

Loremaster’s Screen and Laketown Sourcebook - Heavy duty screen, and information about the busiest city in the North, including a new playable culture: the Men of the Lake - July/August*

The Darkening of Mirkwood - epic campaign sourcebook and adventures spanning over thirty years - August

Rivendell (title TBC) - core supplement introducing 'unique' cultures: Rangers of the North and Rivendell Elves. Includes material on The Last Homely House, the surrounding areas, magical artefacts, and more - Autumn

* Shipping can sometimes be subject to delays causing the two-month release windows.

We’ll keep you up-to-date on the schedule as we confirm more titles. The books will be available for pre-order as soon as they are approved and go to print.

We are delighted to announce that Tales from Wilderland has just been approved, and the pre-order is now live athttp://shop.cubicle7store.com/epages/es113...roducts/CB71003.

Our pre-orders also include the PDF of the book, which will be sent out as soon as it is ready in a week or so.

The dice sets are also now available for pre-order, and will being shipping in 4-6 weeks. It turns out that shipping dice sets is much more expensive than the equivalent weight in books – wrestling with this is part of the reason that the dice haven’t been available sooner. The result is that it costs about the same to send three sets as one, so you’ll find it more cost-effective to order three and split them with your group – take a look at the options:

1 set: http://shop.cubicle7store.com/epages/es113347.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/es113347_shop/Products/CB71002a

3 sets: http://shop.cubicle7store.com/epages/es113...oducts/CB71002b

Thanks again for your enthusiasm and support, we’ll be back with another update next month.

A sneak peek at the cover painting for the forthcoming "Marvels of Science and Steampunk" for Victoriana.  We're all very excited about this one.

"Science: The great marvel of the Age! Whereas magic is the domain of the aristocracy, maintaining their lives of luxury and social prominence, it is an expensive and unpredictable affair, and available only to a select few. The wonders of Steam and the new Science, however, extend their promise to everyone. From ironclad steamships to personal ornithopters-from electric telegraphs to Babbage engines-the marvels of this age will surely transform the world! And with a little magic thrown in, who knows what else they will accomplish? Marvels of Science and Steampunk explores the great wonders of the Victoriana world, building on the many inventions and technologies covered in the Victoriana Second Edition Core Rulebook - and introducing a few more. Marvels of Science and Steampunk contains: Rules for designing and building technological marvels New character options for engineers Expanded rules for vehicles and vehicular combat New spells and medium abilities that affect technology Dozens of ready-made technological marvels to insert into your Victoriana campaign."

Marvels of Science and Steampunk: Written by Walt Ciechanowdski, Chad Bowser, and Scott Rhymer.
