Cubicle 7 had the licence, did One ring and Adventures in Middle earth, then lost the licence, Free League picked it up and got the Ring engine from C7, but are starting from fresh for LOTR RPG.

So expecting crossovers from AIME is asking for a lot.

This has already been done at least THREE TIMES, that I know of.

Okay, I looked at the preview. If I am understanding from the Table of Contents this is not a standalone rpg. Does this version require using the D&D 5e rules books?

Correct. Bottom right of page 7. "This is not a stand-alone game..."

The only question is WHY??? Like, this is so confusing... Adventures in Middle-Earth was a standalone 5e engine game. Sometimes Free League does things that seriously boggle the mind.

I'll just get the pdfs for AiME and get those printed instead.

AiME wasn't a stand-alone game, it just had classes, cultures, virtues (feats) and rules for the Shadow, journeys, councils and downtime.

You can't get those PDF's anymore, Cubicle 7 lost the license and, unless you already had them, they are no longer available, and never will be.

How compatible is it with Cubicle 7's old Adventures in Middle-Earth? I know it's functionally a replacement.

Kinda. It is basically a revised edition... the main book does not include the men of Lake Town, Gondor, or Rohan. Nor Beorings or Mirkwood Elves. You do get Lindon Elves instead. As far as classes at least Scholar, Treasure Hunter and Warden are familiar. The Slayer is out...
a new class Captain is in. Wanderer is now a Messenger and the Warrior is the Champion. So far the art is very minimal. I did get the second book on the Shire... I was hoping for something different, but regrettable purchases both considering I have the previous system. It is hard to beat Adventures in Middle Earth. Just waiting on Moria...

Anyone with an Early Access PDF will get the final PDF next month. Per the description: "The PDF will be updated in your DTRPG account once it is fully finalized PDF this Winter with minor changes."

Agreed. Not like some computer games, etc. that can be early accessed, BUT PDF's are things you print out and who wants to print hundreds of pages multiple times. I definitely hope people don't jump on this and make this common practice going forward.

Maybe don't print it out right away? Or just wait until the final copy comes out to buy it? Your particular method of utilizing the product isn't necessarily the way everyone else uses it, but hey make it all about you.

May I suggest not buying it until it has been finalized if it bothers you? And let those who want to buy it at the early access stage buy it. Seems simple enough.

I just want to know how this game adapts the 5e engine and if it's compatible with Adventures in Middle-Earth, and why did they feel the need to change the name of the game from what was a really good name to this one.

The early access copy will upgraded for free to the final version once it is released.

Getting the early access can also help with providing feedback when it comes playtesting and balancing, so the more people who purchase can translate to a better product in the end.

But what if it sucks, and you find out before they get your money? :-D

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.

Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
