Have JP, Adam, or any Rollplay peeps ever looked at The One Ring as a possible system to have on the show?
I've recently picked up most of the books for it, played a session after really enjoying reading through the core book, and I realized I've never really seen anyone talk about it when systems to play comes up. I know JP at least enjoys the setting since he bought the box set of the extended editions of the movie trilogy which is mainly why I thought to bring it up for Rollplay.
In my opinion in the same way that I think FFG star wars systems do star wars really well TOR does Tolkien even better. I'm mainly curious about if it's ever been considered though I'd understand if it wasn't simply due to the wealth of systems out there.
I do think it would require a certain cast that are used to more serious roleplaying, because it does expect you to play in a certain way and understand that this isn't as high powered as a lot of other systems though I absolutely don't think it requires anybody to be a Tolkien expert to enjoy even a completely new person would probably be fine if they read the core book thoroughly .
In particular the Darkening of Mirkwood campaign would be fantastic to watch the rollplay crew take a swing at imo since it's easily one of the best campaigns if not the best I've ever read beating out even the Great Pendragon Campaign. Though it is minimum 30 sessions, and more likely twice that to complete, (takes place over 30 years) so it might be a little long to have on.
Anyways, what does everyone else think?
