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."

A big double page spread map for Lake-town Sourcebook for The One Ring rpg: [link]

This shows an idea of what the rebuilt Lake-town might look like. The aim was to give enough info for Loremasters to be able to guide their players through Lake-town, without being too prescriptive about individual streets and so on, which runs the risk of being too dry.

A lot of hours in this one! ArtRage and Photoshop.

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."

You can see an hour long walkthrough broken up into ten videos over on my youtube channel: [link]

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

"Lake-town is a free city, where adventurers hailing from different places come in search of opportunities to make their name. In addition to Northmen of all extractions, Elves and Dwarves are a common sight, as both the Woodland Realm and the Kingdom under the Mountain have interests in the city. Even Hobbits may come to Lake-town without raising too much of a commotion, as strange sights are becoming the norm, with merchants from the south and east bringing their wares into town with increasing regularity."

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.”

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."

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.

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."

Mrikwood Marsh Ruins for The One Ring rpg from Sophisticated Games and Cubicle 7.

"Here a town of Men once thrived, a waystation for travelling Dwarves coming from or going to the Iron Hills and merchants from the South and East. When the power of the northern Kings waned, the town was abandoned, until the marshes and the forest swallowed its ruins, together with any trace of its existence."
