Yesterday we opened pre-orders for the hardback, revised edition of Tales from Wilderland, so today we thought we’d take a look at what we’ve updated, and why.
The print version is available to pre-order from our webstore, and the PDF version is available to buy from RPGNow. Pre-orders both on our webstore and at participating Bits & Mortar retailers come with a complementary PDF copy too.
If you’ve already got the PDF version, you can download the revised edition for free by logging into RPGNow/DriveThruRPG and going to My Library.
Tales from Wilderland was our first supplement for The One Ring, released shortly after the original slipcase edition back in April 2012. Since then we’ve reprinted it a couple of times, and it’s been out of stock with us for nearly 6 months now. In that time we’ve also released a revised edition of The One Ring Roleplaying Game, so we decided that it made a good deal of sense to take this opportunity to update Tales from Wilderland to match the latest edition of the game.
So, what’s changed? Well, it’s worth pointing out at the start that, overall, we’ve not changed that much. Tales from Wilderland was already a great supplement with seven fantastic adventures in it, and it’s not taken us much work to update it to the latest edition of the rules. For the most part, what we’ve done is updated the various page references to the rules to match the page numbers in the new edition of The One Ring. Some of the rules of The One Ring changed in the new edition too – most notably the rules for Hazard episodes and preliminary rolls – so we made sure the updated Tales from Wilderland reflected these rules too; we don’t want newcomers to the game to be confused by finding different rules in an adventure, after all. Finally, we’ve fixed a handful of typos that somehow snuck past our editors too.
The biggest change is one prompted by overwhelming fan demand, and that is for us to reprint Tales from Wilderland as a hardcover, complete with maps of Wilderland in the endpapers, to match the other supplements in the line.
So what’s not changed? We’re happy to report, not much has changed! Tales from Wilderland still has the same great adventures in it, pretty much exactly as they always have been. So, if you’ve already got Tales from Wilderland or played through the adventures previously, you’re not missing out – the adventures in the original edition are still fantastically good fun, and just as usable with the latest edition of The One Ring as they always have been.
We took the decision not to make the updated version a new product on RPGNow so that everyone who has already bought it will get a free update. Just log in to RPGNow/DriveThruRPG and go to My Library. Click on Tales from Wilderland and you’ll be able to download the updated PDF, absolutely free. We’ve also updated our Bits & Mortar retailers with the latest edition too, so if you’ve bought a copy from a participating store in the past, you’ll be able to get the new PDF from them too.
And if you want to get your hands on the new hardcover version, you can pre-order it from our webstore here, or in your local gamestore.

About Tales from Wilderland
“There are no safe paths in this part of the world. Remember you are over the Edge of the Wild now, and in for all sorts of fun wherever you go.”
A failed robbery, the daring of two Hobbit brothers, a terrible crime, the flight of the Elves, the affairs of Wizards, black treachery, an ancient threat – seven stories to be told in the Twilight of the Third Age. Seven adventures need a company of heroes to undertake them.
Tales from Wilderland contains seven ready-to-play adventures, complete scenarios that can be played separately, or as an epic campaign spanning across a number of years. All adventures are set in the years after 2946, and take place in Wilderland.
A wealth of background material expands the setting information contained inThe One Ring, the fantasy roleplaying game based upon The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, the world-renowned masterpieces written by J.R.R. Tolkien.
This newly revised, hardcover edition is fully updated to the revised edition ofThe One Ring Roleplaying Game, with new references, updated hazard episodes and rules, full colour endpaper maps, all in a durable, hardcover format.
