Origins Awards 2015

We’re pleased to be able to update on the progress of Ruins of the North, our forthcoming adventure anthology for The One Ring Roleplaying Game; it has left the printers and is en route to our warehouses both in the US and the UK. If you’ve not pre-ordered it yet, then you still have a little bit of time left to do so!

We’re also over the moon to have been nominated for two Origins Awards! Both our card game, Hobbit Tales, and The Darkening of Mirkwood campaign for The One Ring are up for Best RPG Supplement. Our first card game, Doctor Who: The Card Game, won an Origins Award when it was first released, so let’s see if we can scoop a second one with our second card game; and Shadows over Scotland won an Origins Award for Best RPG Supplement, so let's see if we can add another trophy from that category to our cabinet!

You can never have enough dice, that's something every gamer knows to be true. And, with that in mind, we’re pleased to announce that our new Green Dice Set for use with The One Ring Roleplaying Game is available to pre-order on our webstore now! They will also be available in all good games stores in May.

We’ve also restocked the original bone-coloured version of The One Ring Dice Set, just in case you don’t have enough dice – we’re joking of course, we know you can never have enough dice!

We’ve got a busy week in store, following on from last week’s reveal of the covers to the next products for both Cthulhu Britannica and The Laundry.

Inspired by some gaming of our own at the weekend and a new review, we thought we’d take a fresh look at our ENnie Award-winning Hobbit Tales card game, which is our fast and fun storytelling card game that can also be used with The One Ring Roleplaying Game.

Then, later in the week, copies of Concert in Flames – our guidebook to Victoriana Europe – is hitting stores in the US, and we’ll be taking a look at what the future holds for World War Cthulhu. Here’s a clue: what you’ve seen so far is just the tip of the iceberg.
