Tolkien Gateway

Lord of the Rings Adventure Game

Revision as of 18:19, 7 December 2009 by Morgan (Talk | contribs)




Lord of the Rings Adventure Game (LOR or LoR) is a role-playing game based on the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien (specifically The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit) under license from Tolkien Enterprises. Iron Crown Enterprises published the game until they lost the license on 22 Sep 1999.


Two more sequel books were promised to be available (Before the Goblins in 1993 and Greatest of the Forests in 1994), but never reached publication.

Further developments

Brian Gross has created a fantasy RPG system called Middle-earth Adventure Game (MEAG), which is a generalization and expansion of the rules created by ICE for the Middle-earth Quest books and for the Lord of the Rings Adventure Game. MEAG is specifically designed for Middle-earth gaming with new role-players in mind. It is suitable for introductory play, but is complete enough to be used by anyone who does not want complex rules to get between the players and the roleplaying.
