Free League’s had a busy October so far with releases and preorders rolling in. From indie-games to high level IPs, they’ve got great things ahead.
Into the Odd
Bastion is the only city that matters. In its industrial age, it sits as the smoke-shrouded hub of mankind, surrounded by a world of lurking horrors and cosmic interference. The Underground spreads beneath our feet and the stars loom above.
Into the Odd Remastered released to the public on October 3rd. This rules-light, flavor heavy RPG combines industrial horror and cosmic strangeness for a unique weird fantasy experience.
The Remastered version comes in hardcover with full color restoration and expanded content. Look what’s inside;
- Fast Character Creation – Roll an explorer in minutes, grabbing a starter package of flavourful equipment and starting your expedition.
- Minimalist Rules – An ultralite system that keeps the game moving forward. Combat is fast and decisive, with every turn counting.
- Strange Things – Monsters are horrific hazards, not opponents to be fought for sport. Arcana are weird artifacts that each carry a unique ability, from firing portals to attracting bones like a magnet.
- Return to the Iron Coral – The strange expedition location from the original game has tripled in size, now sprawling over three levels. The surrounding Fallen Marsh now hides four mini-dungeons in its 24 hexes. In the North, the desperate port of Hopesend welcomes adventurous travellers looking to go further.
- The Expanded Oddpendium – 26 pages of modules and random tables to help you flesh out the world. Roll to create weird creatures, find the best shortcut across town, and find out what happens when you “eat the stuff”.

Ruins of the Lost Realm Preorders
Also available for preorder with immediate PDF access is The One Ring: Ruins of the Lost Realm. You won’t wait nearly as long as Ruins of the Lost Realm scheduled release is October 25th.
Ruins of the Lost Realm is a beautifully illustrated 120-page hardcover volume. Contents:
Chapter 1: Fog Over Eriador offers a description of the regions that once were part of the kingdom of Arnor, with a focus on the city of Tharbad.
Chapter 2: A Gathering Storm provides the Loremaster with a set of narrative elements aimed at building a possible future for the land of Eriador as a whole, including the description of many looming threats, Loremaster characters and their agendas.
Chapter 3: Landmarks adds twelve sites of interest in the style of the one presented in the core volume. These locations depict both ‘historical’ sites mentioned in The Lord of the Rings™ or The Hobbit™, and others that have been created specifically for the game.
