More About Adventures in Middle-earth

Adventures in Middle-earth is an officially licensed 5e OGL setting, bringing Middle-earth to your 5e games. It provides an unparalleled handling of the source material, gorgeous art and bespoke rules that bring the feel of Middle-earth to your gaming table without the need to learn a new rules set!

Adventures in Middle-earth: Players Guide


The starting point for Adventures in Middle-earth is the Player's Guide, which gives you the Middle-earth setting-specific rules and guidance to create your characters and adventure in the world of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings using the OGL 5e ruleset.

Character creation features Cultures and Classes designed for Middle-earth to help you get deep into the setting from the very start of your adventures. New rules add excitement to your journeys and encounters, and chart the corruption of the Shadow in the unwary or unwise.

The Quest begins with this lavishly illustrated  Player’s Guide. You can start playing right away with this Player’s Guide, and the rules to the world's most popular roleplaying game.

Adventures in Middle-earth: Players Guide contains:
• 11 Middle-earth specific playable Cultures
• 6 New and unique Classes
• 13 New Backgrounds custom-made for Middle-earth
• Middle-earth appropriate arms and armour
• Unique Journey rules
• New rules for Corruption
• New Audience rules
• Rules for The Fellowship Phase
• Middle-earth maps (as the end papers) for Players and Loremasters

Adventures in Middle-earth Loremaster’s Guide

The quest that began in the Player’s Guide continues in this lavishly illustrated Adventures in Middle-earth Loremaster’s Guide. Packed with information, this volume is a hugely valuable resource for your games.

Adventures in Middle-earth Loremaster’s Guide contains:
• Extensive setting information for Wilderland
• A comprehensive guide to Lake-town
• Advice for before the game begins on theme and building your character group
• Notes on the Adventuring phase, inspiration, rests and more!

• A Wilderland bestiary of adversaries
• New rules for customising monsters and using scenery in battle
• Notes on treasure in Middle-earth, magic items and weapons
• A guide to offering expanded magic options
• Advice on running the Fellowship phase, patrons, sanctuaries and undertakings

Wilderland Adventures

Wilderland Adventures features seven brilliant adventures by Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan that have been tried and tested for Adventures in Middle-earth's sister game, The One Ring Roleplaying Game, and which have now been carefully converted to Adventures in Middle-earth OGL rules.

Including new monsters, new journey event tables for each adventure, optional battle maps for use if that's how your group roll, as well as a unique XP award structure, Wilderland Adventures is the perfect companion to your other Adventures in Middle-earth volumes!

The seven adventures can be played individually, or as a linked campaign as our new-found company of heroes battles a darkness rising in Wilderland. Played as a campaign this is a tour de force expedition across the region. You'll meet familiar faces, experience the horrors of Mirkwood, meet ancient Elves, drink ale with Hobbits, defeat Goblins, resolve familial disputes, explore ancient ruins, fight a pitched battle and travel far, far North into the Waste, where dragons dwell...

Rhovanion Region Guide

Follow the Anduin river down from the chill springs of the Misty Mountains to the southern edge of the Wild! Explore the dread forest of Mirkwood, running from the lonely thickets of the north to the very gates of Dol Guldur! Enter the Heart of the Wild, and defend it against the rising Shadow.

The Rhovanion Region Guide is an invaluable resource for Adventures in Middle-earth further describing the lands of the River and the Forest – the rolling Vales of Anduin and the trackless forest of Mirkwood. It expands on the descriptions given in the core Guides, offering new sanctuaries and new perils for Player-heroes to discover.

Each region is described in detail, listing potential friends and foes, sites of interest and potential adventures.

An expanded bestiary contains a host of strange creatures and servants of the Enemy, from the beasts of the forest to the fabled Great Spiders.

Variant Cultural Backgrounds for the Wayward Elves and Wild Hobbits offer new options for adventurers, and new Fellowship Phase Undertakings being the Wild to life!

Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Fourth Edition – System Preview

May 18 2018

In the last few weeks we’ve talked a little more about what you can expect from Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, opened pre-orders for the rulebook and starter set, and attended a tremendous Warhammer Fest. We’ve had such a fantastic response, thanks to everyone who has pre-ordered or gotten in touch with us, it really means a lot to all of us working on the game.

Today we’re taking a more detailed look at the game system. We’ve already said that it’s going to be a new implementation of the familiar d100 dice system, that you’ll be able to modify it to suit your play style, and that it will offer resolution options with a variety of levels of detail.

When a test is called for – generally a situation where a character is attempting an action, or reacting to an action affecting them – the GM has three choices:

1 – GM decision based on the characters’ abilities

Keeping the game flowing smoothly and quickly is important to keep everyone actively engaged in the adventure. Sometimes, especially when the outcome doesn’t really matter all that much, or the most likely outcome is pretty obvious, the GM is better off eyeballing the relev
ant character(s) abilities and making a call as to whether or not the action succeeds.

When situations are resolved this way, players will need to show trust and respect to the GM – the decision will need to be accepted as logical and impartial and not signal the start of a discussion!

2 – A simple pass/fail test

This is the one most players are familiar with! You decide which characteristic or skill to test, adjust for the difficulty of the test (for example, a hard difficulty subtracts 20 from your ability) and then roll equal to or under that total to succeed. It’s simple (hence the name), quick, straightforward, and tells you if you succeed or fail.

The downside of the quick pass/fail test is that the action stops dead if you fail. It’s fine in many situations, but that hard ‘No’ can be unsatisfying. And if you have grim and gritty, low-skilled characters, they can fail a lot, and that can get frustrating.

But don’t worry, because we’ve included the Dramatic Test – read on!

3 – A more nuanced dramatic test giving a range of outcomes and success levels

Sometimes you need to know what happens next, rather than just ‘yes’ or ‘no’, ‘pass’ or ‘fail’. The Dramatic Test helps you generate an outcome instead. Using Success Levels to show just how well or poorly you’ve done, these tests give you a result that keeps the story moving.

Rather than just failing to jump across the ravine and plunging to your death, maybe you almost made it and are left hanging onto a root at the other side of the gorge. The negative success levels of a Dramatic Test can help to keep the game interesting and help guard against arbitrary and disproportionate dice-based punishment.
Similarly, the positive success levels mean you can succeed beyond your wildest dreams, with unanticipated consequences piling good fortune at your feet, or scrape past by the skin of your teeth, achieving most of what you wanted, but with some complications.

The Dramatic Test is a tool for the GM to make tests meaningful and… well… dramatic!

You can mix and match these tests in your game to your heart’s content! You might mostly prefer the quicker and more narrative GM’s choice and just switch to dramatic rolls when the vitally important stuff happens. You might prefer the transparency and sense of fairness that dice rolling brings, and stick to Simple Tests to keep things moving quickly. It’s entirely up to you, and the way your group prefers to play.

That’s been one of the core design principles of this edition of the game – to give you the tools to play your Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. We’re giving you lots of options to help tailor the game to you and your group.

Next time we’ll talk a bit more about fighting in Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Fourth Edition!

WFRP Fourth Edition – Warhammer Fest Round Up

May 14 2018

Thanks to everyone who came to meet us at Warhammer Fest! It was a fantastic weekend full of awesome people, news and gaming!

We appreciate that its not practical for lots of you to be there (oceans in the way, for example), but fear not, here’s a summary of the WFRP action.

Our focus for the event was making sure that as many people as possible heard about the new edition of the game, so if you’ve been keeping up with the website and social media then you’re pretty much up to date.
There were of course many questions asked, and astute inquisitors gleaned the following:

  • The d100 system used will be broadly familiar, but a new implementation designed to offer three ways of resolving actions:

1 – a decision based on the characters’ abilities

2 – a simple pass/fail test

3 – a more nuanced dramatic test giving a range of outcomes and success levels

GMs are encouraged to tailor their use of these to suit their group’s preferences.

  • The combat system has been designed to be quick, dynamic and exciting, with something happening as the result of every roll.
  • Careers remain an important feature. Dom waxed eloquent about how careers help immerse characters in the world, and give them something to fight for. He also talked about how that was reinforced in the new edition by Ambitions – personal goals that characters work towards.
  • You can initially play a Human, Dwarf, Halfling or Elf, and that range will grow through future expansions.
  • Dom did also talk about our ambitious plans for expansions. An expeditionary approach to Lustria was mentioned, as was his excitement about Dark Elf politics and how he always wanted to go to Ulthuan.
  • The Age of Sigmar Roleplaying Game will have its own game system. We haven’t set the release date yet, the game is in development, and we are all very excited about the new edition of Age of Sigmar!

We’ll be looking into some more details about Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay soon, so stay tuned!

The pre-order is open now: http://shop.cubicle7store.com/Warhammer-Fantasy-Roleplay

Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Pre-Order Opens This Week!

May 2 2018

The Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Fourth Edition pre-order opens later this week! To whet your appetite, here are 4 things you can expect from the new edition of this beloved game.

  1. Your Warhammer for You!

Something that is really core to our WFRP is that we’ve created tools for you to play your Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. We recognise and support that everyone plays their own version of the rules and the setting, and we fully embrace and encourage that. It’s your game! With 30 years of history under its belt, Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay means a lot of things to a huge number of players.

  1. Ideal starting point

Not much experience with RPGs? The Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Starter Set is designed to be the ideal introduction, with a structured adventure to help you learn how to play. Also containing a guide to Ubersreik, there’s loads of gaming material for more experienced GMs too!

  1. System matters

WFRP4 uses ten-sided dice, and a tuned-up version of the familiar d100 system. You can tailor the rules to your preferences or different in-game situations, choosing from a menu of fast ‘roll under’ Simple Tests, Dramatic Tests giving success levels where you need more than a ‘yes or no’ result, and even barely rolling at all, if that’s your style.

  1. Passion for Warhammer

Our creative team are lifelong players of the three previous editions of the game, and between us we’ve worked on all these editions too! We bloomin’ love Warhammer, and we think it shows.

We’ll be bringing you more on WFRP4 regularly, so watch this space! And, very excitingly, pre-orders go live on Thursday…
