Updated December 27, 2019 as Humble Bundle (different company than Bundle of Holding) has offered Adventures in Middle-Earth (AiME) tiers – New Humble Bundle Offer – Cubicle 7 Adventures in Middle-Earth December 27, 2019: https://upsdownsfamilyhistory.wordpress.com/2019/12/27/new-humble-bundle-offer-cubicle-7-adventures-in-middle-earth-december-27-2019 (will be live at 4:04 P. M. U. S. Central Time.
I saw the new bundles today on Bundle of Holding – TheOneRing Journeys RPG Bundle and The One Ring Journeys RPG Bundle. FYI, Bundle of Holding has your purchases available on their website, but also on DriveThru RPG (DTRPG). If you previously purchased either Bonus Collection, check to see if they did a free upgrade as when they do an updated version of an earlier bundle most of the time, they do free updates to new items. However, not all bundles fall into this category. I believe Fate 5 was not an update of Fate 4.
This was interesting because when I posted about Cubicle 7 losing the rights to Lord of the Rings, Cubicle 7 To Stop Producing The One Ring and Adventures in Middle Earth – December 4, 2019, I was hoping they would offer bundles on Humble Bundle, Bundle of Holding, or the company’s website as well as deals on DriveThru RPG (DTRPG). While this deal is only for The One Ring (TOR), I am hopeful they will do something for Adventures in Middle-Earth (AiME) at some point. The two bundles don’t offer all of the TOR products contrary to the claim in the quoted section below – I found one TOR item not listed, but it was the 2011 edition that was updated in 2014 and the 2014 edition is included in one of the bundles; if you are a purist and want the 2011 edition, you would have to buy it on DTRPG. They generally offer two choices – Starter Collection and Bonus Collection. If you go with the Bonus Collection, you get all the items in the Starter Collection.

THE ONE RING RETURNS – TWICE!
Through Monday, January 6, 2020 we resurrect two offers featuring the official Cubicle 7 Entertainment FRPG based on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, The One Ring Roleplaying Game. We’re reviving both the original October 2015 The One Ring Bundle and its companion collection from December 2017, One Ring Journeys (formerly titled The One Ring +2). For this revival we’ve added new titles to both lineups — and if you bought an offer during its earlier runs, you receive that offer’s newly added titles automatically on your Wizard’s Cabinet download page on the Bundle of Holding site and in your DriveThruRPG Library. When you buy a Bundle of Holding offer, you never worry about missing titles added later — even much later.
This is your last chance to get these two bargain-priced Bundle of Holding offers before Cubicle 7 ceases publishing the One Ring game line next year. Between them, these two offers encompass the entire C7 TOR line. And each of these offers also includes a discount code good for 30% off the purchase of print copies of The One Ring and Adventures in Middle-earth products at the Cubicle 7 webstore.
1. THE ONE RING [from Oct 2015]
Previously revived twice already (in November 2016 and December 2017), The One Ring Bundle has the core rules and key supplements. If you’re new to the game, start here. Pay just US$19.95 to get all four titles in this revived offer’s Starter Collection (retail value $83) as DRM-free .PDFs, including the complete The One Ring Roleplaying Game core rules, the Loremaster’s Screen and Lake-town Guide, and two titles previously presented in the companion One Ring +2 collection (December 2017): the Adventurer’s Companion and Journeys and Maps. (Again, if you bought this offer during any earlier run, you also get these newly added titles.)
And if you pay more than this revival’s threshold (average) price, which is set at $29.95 to start, you’ll level up and also get this offer’s entire Bonus Collection with four more titles worth an additional $84, including Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan’s epic campaign The Darkening of Mirkwood and its accompanying supplement Heart of the Wild, plus the Rivendell location guide and the adventure collection Tales from Wilderland.
2. ONE RING JOURNEYS
[formerly The One Ring +2, Dec 2017]
This December 2017 companion collection was originally titled “The One Ring +2.” But the idea of a +2 modifier on Sauron’s One Ring — urgh, that just bugged us. This revival’s newly expanded lineup, which adds recent location guides for Rohan and Bree, has a new name to emphasize its wide range: One Ring Journeys.
Pay more than this Journeys revival’s threshold ($24.95 to start) and you’ll also get this offer’s entire Bonus Collection with three more titles worth an additional $63, all newly added for this revival: the wide-ranging adventure collection The Laughter of Dragons, the Bree location guide, and a collection of Rohan adventures, Oaths of the Riddermark. (And, to repeat: If you purchased this offer during its original December 2017 run, you automatically get all three of these newly added titles.)
Ten percent of each payment (after gateway fees) goes to these two One Ring revivals’ designated charity, Ocean Conservancy.
Get these two One Ring revivals before they vanish together into the uttermost West Monday, January 6, 2020.
