Lake-town for The One Ring rpg from Sophisticated Games and Cubicle 7.

"Year 2480
Answering commands issued from their master in Dol Guldur, the Orcs begin to spread in the dark places beneath the Misty Mountains. From Mount Gundabad in the north to Moria in the south they secretly strengthen every stronghold, barring all the passes into the lands west of the mountains."

Mirkwood for The One Ring rpg from Sophisticated Games and Cubicle 7.

"Trackless and unconquered by the light, the Heart of Mirkwood is the rotten core of the forest. Here the trees have huge, gnarled trunks, their twisted branches are heavy with strands upon strands of ivy and their roots are so tangled that in some places it is impossible to set foot upon the open ground."

So this is a very exciting time for me. For the last 2 years or so I've been working on artwork for a new Lord of the Rings role playing game, to be published by Cubicle 7 in partnership with Sophisticated Games.

At last some previews of the artwork are being released, and so I can share this one, which went live on Friday: Dol Guldur, home of The Necromancer in Southern Mirkwood, later revealed as Sauron.

A typical Men of the Wilderland dwelling for The One Ring rpg from Sophisticated Games and Cubicle 7.

"Almost two thousand years ago, a shadow crept from the South and slowly drew all light from the heart of Greenwood the Great to its farthest eaves. People began calling the forest Mirkwood, and learnt
to fear its deepest recesses. In spite of the darkness, many lingered along the forest’s borders, fearless sons of Men who defied the menace of the Necromancer in his dreaded abode. These Woodmen have fought the growing darkness for as long as their oldest tellers of tales can remember, and they will continue the fight now that the Shadow has deserted its lair."

"By sunset, the company arrives in sight of an ancient belt of mighty oak trees; beyond it rises the high thorny hedge that surrounds Beorn’s Hall. A tall and wide wooden gate opens in the thorn-hedge to the north, beyond which a wide track leads south towards Beorn’s house and the surrounding outbuildings."

Well, this is my view of the famous dragon called Smaug, in The HOBBIT.
This was done just for the fun of it!

(please note that this is a fanart and have nothing to do with something official)

Rivendell for The One Ring rpg from Sophisticated Games and Cubicle 7.

Probably one of the hardest images to create as a single image, as well as one of the first. In my mind there are many different views and features that make up Rivendell. It was extremely challenging to put one down as a definitive image. That would also fit the required image dimensions.

“Hidden somewhere ahead of us is the fair valley of Rivendell, where Elrond lives in the Last Homely House.”

A Beornings' Settlement for The One Ring rpg from Sophisticated Games and Cubicle 7.


"Faithful to the teachings and will of their chieftain, they protect the mountain passes and the road that leaves the forest to cross the river Anduin, watching for every creature, on two legs or four, that dares defy them. Men, Elves and Dwarves still have to earn the trust of this suspicious folk, and often must pay heavy tolls for safe passage across the Beornings’ domain."
