The initial release (originally planned to be first of a trilogy), The One Ring: Adventures over the Edge of the Wild, is based in the area of northern Mirkwood, after the events of The Hobbit and before the War of the Ring.[2][3]

The game uses custom dice, specifically a twelve sided die numbered 1-10, the "Eye of Sauron", and the "Gandalf" Rune (a Cirth G rune, r), and 6 sided dice numbered normally, but with the 1-3 being in outline, 4-5 solid, and 6 solid having also the Tengwar Lambe rune, j . Standard 12-sided dice can be used, counting 11 as Sauron, and 12 as Gandalf, and standard 6 sided dice as well. [4]
