The blog will primarily focus on Cubicle 7’s truly excellent tabletop roleplaying game, The One Ring, and Games Workshop’s The Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game, especially as it appeared in the amazing fortnightly periodical, “Battle Games of Middle-Earth.” We may also cover material from ICE’s original roleplaying game set in Middle-Earth, Middle-Earth Roleplaying (MERPS), and Games Workshops’ related wargame, The Hobbit, but TOR and SBG shall receive the lion’s share of digital ink.
The Forsaken Inn will serve as both a means for me to share material and news from my ongoing The One Ring campaign (now more than six months’ old) and as a goad for me to continue painting my ever-growing collection of Games Workshop LotR miniatures. New material will appear as the urge strikes me or developments require it. I’ve previously run the successful The Society of Torch, Pole and Rope old-school gaming blog and know that a pleasant pastime can quickly become an odious taskmaster. It’s my intent that The Forsaken Inn remains a fun endeavor. I hope you find it to be similarly entertaining!
